I have stopped watching the show after a month of its second season run. It started out pretty interesting. The first few tasks were challenging enough to keep viewers glued. Man, there were even some episodes which I could actually consider worthy of wasting my time. But I don't know. I just stopped. I have very low tolerance in keeping up with what's happening in my life let alone follow 14 strangers wiggle their asses, take regular bathroom breaks and talk about the latest in-house chika.
Even with all the Wendy buzz just a week ago, I displayed minimal interest in its final week. Man, did I haaateHER. But no matter how bitchy she got, it didn't urge me to call her names like "Wendy-monyo" in public online forums; just made me wish she got trampled by the chicks she was running with in the recent Lovapalooza commercial.
So when I learned that she shockingly made it to the finals, I knew I had to watch her get the worst booing of her life in Araneta.
As we watch the BIG NIGHT countdown clock at channel 2 boil down to minutes, my friends and I were still busy brewing and finalizing a master plan for our friend, Abe's surprise 21st birthday bash. I just owe this guy a lot. We just met last November around MY 21st birthday and he helped with most of the planning, ambiance, lights, music, all for FREE! My party was a smash hit mostly because of his doing. So, with high gratitude, I would like this party to be smoking hot as well.
Starting the Podcast
We were basically running out of new ideas. We don't want a rerun of what happened at my gig, that wouldn't be a surprise, would it. Got no time to record a video let alone edit one. So we thought, as a simple gift, instead of just the usual house music, we'll also be playing a podcast all through out the party - a personalized radio show. Brilliant.
Now that was our first mistake. Ha!
We started as PBB was already announcing the 4th big placer. We had to record during commercials since being hardcore addicts, Jhossa (a Wendy fan in denial) and Bits insisted on keeping the TV on while we do our business. Now that was another mistake.
The recording was all over the place! Everybody was talking over each other, there was no real flow (thanks Tanggera), and even worse, it was smothered with countless off-topic PBB adlibs and spiels! The joy of having Wendy kicked out was evident in the podcast but as we moved on, I just had to steer the conversation out of PBB's way. I don't know if you can tell but I was "trying" to be on-topic as my co-DJs ramble like crazy. Haha.
But what the heck. It was really fun anyway. It was our their first time for crying out loud. We made it in one take with no editing. And everybody got to go home as PBB rolled the credits.
Oh, and the Party?
Massive success. Although not because of our ingenuity in organizing events but because of Abe's band, Mainstream, with their pretty hot vocalist, Tina (who, by the way, they call "Du-Wendy", haha!). Everybody got to hear the podcast, and all they understood was "Happy Birthday Aaaaabe!" Bummer.
Now here is the podcast. Edited to spare you the agony. It isn't that bad. Really. Heh. Tell me what you think.
P.S. To everyone who's thinking I've jumped the shark with this one, don't worry, I'll make up for it next week. Haha!
And thanks Dad, for thinking highly of my "reputation". Don't stress, I'll take care of it.
everybody naman hates wendy eh... hindi ka nag-iisa... would you believe, taga-navotas din ako! pero sa kabilang navotas kami... hindi sa may fishport area na tinitirahan ni wendy... ang balita ko nga kahit mga kapitbahay nila dun e sobrang hate na rin siya...
