The show’s much-awaited season six premiere, which trended on Twitter worldwide with the hashtag #PilipinasGotTalent, also beat its rival shows that rated only 18.7% and 14.5% nationwide on the same dates, based on data from Kantar Media.
Fans eagerly awaited the return of judges Freddie “FMG” Garcia, Angel Locsin, Robin Padilla, and Vice Ganda, and host Billy Crawdord plus PGT’s newest host Toni Gonzaga.

Meanwhile, the macho men of Bardilleranz, who showcased a pull up bars exhibition act, automatically advanced to the semi-finals after judge FMG chose them as his Golden Buzzer act this season. Even netizens online were amazed by the group, whose video in PGT’s official YouTube channel tallied 1.5 million views in just two days.
