The return of the immensely popular fantasy show on the small screen is one big TV event. On Monday, when the “requel” of Encantadia premiered, two generations of TV viewers were glued in front of their TV sets. The pilot was so successful it topped Twitter trending topics and made everyone else in the ratings race, including FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, eat dust.
After AlDub broke Facebook and Twitter when the love team celebrated its first remarkable year, the Pambansang Bae has another phenomenal reason to celebrate. Alden’s Wish I May EP (extended play) has just been certified 7x platinum for selling more than 105,000 units. With this achievement, it is safe to say that the EP is the most successful record released in 2015.
Junior New System
Talking about impressive feat, the dance group has just made Filipino talent shine on the global stage. After making headlines in Asia’s Got Talent last year, Junior New System strutted home with the “Senior Dance Group of the World” and “Senior Grand Champion Performer of the World” awards at the WCOPA. You know, the competition considered as the Olympics for performing arts.
The TV host/comedian who also dabbles in politics drew flak for a rape-related joke he made on national television.

He has been prepped to compete in this year’s Mr. World since two years ago, also when fellow model John Spainhour was handpicked to represent the country in the prestigious male pageant that year. But Sam was the last candidate to arrive in London, where the competition was held, missing almost half of the major events in the male beauty competition. Poor Sam! He could have represented his country well.
The Pacquiao Brothers
Most celebrities demonstrated some sort of gift or talent or skill that was greater than the ordinary capacities of normal people. Hence, they landed a spot in showbiz. But the same thing cannot be said of Pacman’s young men, Jimuel and Michael, whose gigantic billboard on Edsa serves as a glaring sign that they want some attention, too. Why does Bench hire pseudo celebrities for its huge tarps in the first place?
