Let’s all settle, once and for all, that the “Pilipinas Got Talent” semifinalist Joven Olvido is living proof that humor, at times, plays a bigger impact than good looks to charm someone—or the whole nation, for that matter. When he first got up on the center stage of PGT, he instantly captured the attention of the jury and the audience alike due to his witty banters, minutes before he even showed off his “unique” vaping skills. Video of his audition now boasts a staggering 19,990,696 views, and the comments section shows that he managed to amuse not just his fellow Filipinos but also people across the globe.
Recently, Joven graced our TV screens and ended up making us laugh our guts out due to his yet again hilarious stage number. What he did this time, apart from vaping, was doing a parody on each of his fellow semifinalists’ performance such as Kristel De Katalina’s spiral pole dancing and “Bardilleranz’s” pull-up bars.
The judges, the show’s host Toni Gonzaga, and the live audience were evidently impressed by Joven’s jovial execution, with the latter giving him loud cheers and a massive standing ovation. When it was the jury’s turn to give their comments, Robin Padilla couldn’t utter much and only said:
“Hahahahahaha! Katulad nila (audience), ‘yan din ang reaksiyon ko!”
Angel Locsin, on the other hand, praised Joven’s spontaneous idea. She said:
“Alam mo, Joven, ang advantage mo kasi, walang sinumang matinong tao ang makakaisip kung anong gagawin mong susunod. Kaya gulat na gulat kami ditto, as in, lahat kami dito, kakabagin sa kakatawa sa ‘yo.”
She also expressed her thankfulness that she and her co-judges fought for him as they already saw his potential since day one.
“Masayang masaya ako na ipinaglaban ka namin, kasi, una pa lang nakita ko na sa spark ng mga mata mo na ‘ito si Joven, sisikat ‘to kasi may talent siya at saka napapasaya niya tayong lahat.’”
Meanwhile, Vice Ganda made Joven shed a few tears after he expressed his interest to train him. The “Unkabogable” star also defended Joven against his bashers, saying that being a comedian isn’t a piece of cake.
“Kailangan ng mundo ng maraming magpapatawa, and that is the very reason kung bakit namin pinayagang makapasok ito sa semifinals. ‘Yong mga taong masyadong dunung-dunungan na bakit daw pumasok ka, [na] ang daming mas magagaling, mga siraulo ba kayo? Ang pagpapatawa ay isang mahirap na art at trabaho at isang mahusay na talento.”
