Mayor Alfredo Abelardo "Albee" Bantug Benitez currently sits as the Bacolod City's local chief executive after he won in the 2022 local elections. Before running for Bacolod city mayor, he served for three consecutive terms as the representative of the 3rd District of Negros Occidental. He was once touted as the richest congressman in the Philippines and is the owner of Brightlight Productions, producer of Lunch Out Loud.
In a previous report by KAMI, a brave, concerned citizen earned praises online after he was able to successfully stop a couple of individuals from allegedly stealing a manhole cover made of pure steel. The incident was captured on video by the concerned citizen who immediately posted it on social media. Mayor Albee Benitez of Bacolod City himself shared the video of the incident on his own official page. The local chief executive then paid tribute to the brave citizen, telling his constituents that his courageous action should be emulated by all.
A few years ago, Mayor Albee received an apology through a social media post from veteran showbiz columnist Lolit Solis after she called him out and asked him to stop producing the TV5 noontime program, “Lunch Out Loud.” Manay Lolit spoke against the show after LOL host Jeffrey Tam got badly injured due to a prank that his co-host Billy Crawford pulled on him.
