Angel Locsin turns down Robin Padilla’s bet on “PGT”

Play Girls, a sexy girl dance group, said that they would like to “heat up the night” with their performance on the episode of “Pilipinas Got Talent” which was aired on March 3.

The group named Play Girls said they decided to audition for the show by performing a provocative dance number in a carwash setup.

Angel Locsin, one of the judges of the show, was not impressed by the performance and immediately hit her buzzer to reject the group.

After performing, Locsin’s co-judge, Vice Ganda admitted that he was also confused with the group’s performance and asked them what they did.

When asked about what their talent was, one of the members of the group answered “car washing”.

Vice Ganda didn’t consider the group’s performance as an act worthy of the show’s cash prize, and he eventually turned them down for the competition.

Locsin said that she does not want men to objectify women, that is why she decided to hit her buzzer.

“Ako kasi parang hindi ko kaya na makita kayo na nagsasayaw na naka-underwear para lang sa ’min. Masyado kayo magaganda at masyado niyo ’tong pinaghirapan para gawin ’yan,” she said.

“Kung may talent kayo, ’yun ang ipakita niyo sa ’min dahil talent ang hinahanap namin dito, hindi katawan. Kaya ko kayo binuzz, ayaw kong ma-objectify kayo. Masyado ako nagmamalasakit para sa inyo para i-go ko ’to at patuloy kayong panoorin ng mga kalalakihan na ginagawa iyan,” she added.

Robin Padilla, another judge, disagreed with Locsin saying that their suggestive dance number is not a problem as long as the dancers are “okay with it”.

“Ginagawa n’yo ba yan dahil gusto n’yo? O labag sa kalooban n’yo? Isa-isa ha kasi mahalaga ’to. Para mabura sa isipan nu’ng mga ibang judges na kayo’y napilitan o ano,” Padilla asked the girl group.

“Wala naman nag-iisip na napilitan, Kuya Binoy,” Locsin interrupted.

Rephrasing his question, Padilla asked the Play Girls if they are enjoying what they are doing, to which the girls replied yes.

“Gusto niyo ba ’yun na mga kalalakihan ay humahanga sa inyo?” Padilla further asked.

“Seryoso ka?” a shocked Locsin countered.

As tension was beginning to rise between Locsin and Padilla, one of the members defended their performance saying that it is their talent.

“’Yung sinasabi [ng mga judges], magandang point ’yun, si Angel lalo. Intindihin niyo si Angel kasi advocacy niya ’yan, women’s rights. Kaya niya sinasabi yan para proteksiyonan kayo. Sana maintindihan niyo ‘yan. Walang against sa inyo. Lahat ng sinabi dito pabor sa inyo,” said Padilla.

The two men in the judging panel, Padilla and Freddie M. Garcia, former ABS-CBN president, approved Play Girls performance and gave the group their yes.

But the group was not able to advance in the competition after Locsin and Vice Ganda said no.

After the performance was aired, members of Play Girls took it to Facebook to attack and criticize Locsin for not supporting their performance.

Locsin has aired her opinions regarding the criticism she has received after the show.

“There is no such thing as a “slut” or a “non-slut.” There are women,” she said on Twitter.

Nevertheless, Locsin was highly praised by netizens who saw the episode for uplifting feminism and women’s rights.
