- Maureen Wroblewitz had a short hosting stint on “Eat Bulaga”
- On social media, she admitted to having a disappointing experience on the show
- She revealed that not being fluent in Tagalog caused her a lot of issues
Maureen Wroblewitz took to social media to open up about her disappointing hosting stint on “Eat Bulaga.”
KAMI learned that Maureen admitted to having a heartbreaking experience on the popular noontime program.
According to the model, the difficulties she faced were caused by her inability to speak fluently in Tagalog.
“Eat Bulaga was the next step in my career and I was so surprised that they even wanted to get me as a host because my Tagalog speaking skills were maybe just at 20%.
“Fortunately, they provided 10 Tagalog classes for me. I was motivated to learn because of course I wanted to be able to host in Tagalog one day.
“As I’m a so called ‘Adult Learner,’ it was a lot harder than I thought, even if I had a slight advantage of already understanding the language.
“I would pressure myself a lot to learn and I had to constantly remind everyone around me to stop speaking English with me…
“After a while I just knew I had to go back to taking classes because I felt like I wasn’t going anywhere. At the same time I was fighting my inner battle of overcoming the German attitude.
“I would try to host in Tagalog but I would be ‘bulol’ most of the time. I thought it was okay because Filipinos think it’s cute right? I was wrong.
“I would get a lot of hate because I didn’t know how to speak in Tagalog. People asked themselves why I was even on the show.
“What could I possibly distribute to the show? My lack of talents?
“I would go home crying because I was so mad at myself,” Maureen wrote.
KAMI previously reported about Maureen responding to a netizen who body-shamed her.
Maureen Wroblewitz’s breakthrough came when she joined and won Asia’s Next Top Model. She also became a co-host on the Kapuso program Eat Bulaga. Her rumored boyfriend is music artis Juan Karlos Labajo.
