"It's Showtime" had non-stop laughs Wednesday as a "Miss Q&A" contestant grooved and made witty comebacks to questions from hosts Vice Ganda and Anne Curtis, whose names he combined to form his stage name.
The contestant, President Ganda Curtis Smith, endeared himself to the audience with clever answers and funny one-liners that, by the end of the segment, judge Jhong Hilario congratulated the noontime program for discovering a new talent.
President Ganda, for instance, jokingly protested that another contestant shouldn't have gone through to the next round, after the latter answered in Tagalog, not English. "It is not convincing!" she quipped.
When Vice Ganda and Curtis then took their time to choose a question, an "impatient" President Ganda started counting down to pressure the hosts to at once continue with the quiz portion.
As "President," the contestant also said, in jest, that he had authority over Vice Ganda, as he tried to get in between the comedian and dancer Jackque Gonzaga during their regular romance skit.
Following his comedic display, President Ganda ultimately earned praise from the judges for his sincere and serious answer in the final round of the competition, where he candidly admitted wasting the education his father had worked hard for to give him.
While it appeared to be a tough fight between him and reigning queen Lars Pacheco, President Ganda, in the end, was crowned the new queen. The next step, should he manage to defend his crown enough times, is the nearing semifinals, which will immediately be followed by the "Miss Q&A" finale.
