Willie Revillame wows with his return to noontime via ‘Wowowillie’

Power interruptions aside, Willie Revillame’s return to the afternoon time slot via TV5’s newest noontime show “Wowowillie” certainly made a big splash on Philippine television.
 
The premiere broadcast on Saturday, January 26 at the Wowowille Studio (formerly Delta Theater) in Quezon City ran for about five hours. The last time the 52-year-old TV host clocked  in something as lengthy was during the first year anniversary of his defunct primetime show “Wil Time Big Time.”

“Wowowillee” began with an opening number that lasted for over 15 minutes and features TV5 stars and guests such as recent sexy cover girls Ritz Azul and Meg Imperial, Eula Caballero, and Sophie Albert, among others.
 
Luningning, Mariposa, and Milagring—dancers made popular by Willie in his past three shows—also graced the premiere.
 
Mariel Rodriguez, Camille Villar, and Grace Lee remain as co-hosts of the new noontime show with Arci Munoz, Ethel Booba, Lovely Abella, and Ava Jugueta.

One of the highlights of Saturday’s show was the appearance of friend and former co-host Randy Santiago, officially ending the feud that began in 2011. It can be remembered that Willie aired his disappointment when Randy and John Estrada accepted ABS-CBN’s offer to host a noontime show in 2011. Willie has since made up with Randy.
 
Another surprise is the performance of Juamee Revillame, Willie’s seven-year-old son with Liz Amoro.

The bands Kamikazee and Aegis, rapper Gloc 9, singers Nina, Basil Valdez, Lloyd Umali, and Wency Cornejo also performed.
 
“Wowowille” was a top trending topic during its Saturday episode.
