The drama unfolded yesterday (October 8), when Ryan Bang was finally evicted as “hurado” from the ABS-CBN talent variety program after an astounding 48 weeks. Ryan got 25.63% of eviction votes, the second highest among the four judges, while Dimples got 18.91%, the second lowest.
As we all know, the two highest vote-getters will be the “burado” or the judges who will get the boot. After learning the results, Ryan Bang broke into tears. Some of the hosts like Vice Ganda and Anne Curtis also cried because they’ve been with Ryan for more than a year.
This is the moment when Dimples Romana decided to announce that she’s evicting herself to reinstate Ryan Bang as a Showtime judge.
“Since I still have my seat, I think I have the power to give Ryan to have my seat. Ryan is a good man, and I hope po na maging masaya kayong lahat sa pagbabalik ni Ryan. I’m self-evicting….Gusto ko pong magpasalamat sa lahat sa inyo. Alam nyo po, ang hindi ma-vote off ang isang hurado ng limang linggo at palagpas pa ay sobra-sobra na pong regalo, sobra sobra na pong kabutihan ng buong Showtime at di ko na po magawang humiling ng sobra sobra. Effective Monday I will be out of Showtime and Ryan will take my seat,” she said.
This is actually the second time that Dimples Romana has resigned as a Showtime judge. Early 2010 when she was also one of the judges of the talent variety show, she also gave up her post because of her conflicting schedules.
