Conversely, others argued that in high-pressure live television scenarios, split-second decisions are inevitable. Buboy's interruption might have been an unintentional consequence of trying to keep the show running smoothly.

It can be recalled that Tito, Vic, and Joey left TAPE Inc.’s Eat Bulaga and transferred to TV5 and formed the E.A.T. show due to an ongoing conflict. TVJ were replaced by new hosts including Buboy, Isko, and Paolo Contis.

"Eat Bulaga" is the longest-running noontime variety program on Philippine television. The show premiered on July 30, 1979. Its pioneer hosts include showbiz icons Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon, and Tito Sotto. Tape Inc.'s "Eat Bulaga" recently went back live on air on GMA with its new lineup of hosts, including Paolo Contis, Buboy Villar and Betong Sumaya.
