A potentially untoward incident involving a dancer was averted Thursday on "It's Showtime," thanks to the quick thinking of host Anne Curtis during the noontime program's "Miss Q&A" segment.
Curtis and co-host Vice Ganda were interviewing one of the contestants, when the female dancer was called in to hand a fish bowl of questions to the aspiring queen.
On her way out, however, the dancer tripped, causing the knot securing her dress to loosen. Noticing this, Curtis immediately ran towards her, and pulled her to the side of the stage to help fix the dress.
Vice Ganda similarly paced towards the dancer to help, joking, "Natanggal pa! Wardrobe malfunction. Para hindi matanggal, i-stapler niyo 'yung damit sa batok!"
Returning for a second time on stage, the dancer appeared more cautious as she kept a farther distance from the steps, Vice Ganda noticed. Curtis, meanwhile, reminded her, "Ingat!"
A live program with hosts often going offscript with entertaining candid moments, "It's Showtime" has become known for its spontaneity that allows mainstays, such as Curtis and Vice Ganda, to deal with mishaps (broken props, wardrobe malfunctions) with refreshing candor.
