Event: The President, Chito Miranda and more of the 72 #ItsShowtimena #KalokaLike Level-Up Face 2 contestants
Everyone wants a shot at fame and fortune. ABS-CBN's noontime show "It's Showtime" recently introduced their "Kaloka Like Face 2" at the Dolphy Theater last Saturday. From last year's 44 contestants where Christopher De Leon lookalike Jonathan Garcia won the Ultimate Kalokalike last May, this year's KalokaLike Face 2 will have 72 look-alikes to bag the crown of Ultimate KalokaLike Face 2 with Php300,000 on Sept. 21. First runner-up will receive Php200,000 and Php100,000 for the second runner-up in the battle of getting the viewers and the netizens vote.
Vying for the Ultimate KalokaLike crown are lookalikes of international stars and famous actors, actresses, singers and It's Showtime hosts Anne Curtis, Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro, Billy Crawford, Karylle, Kim Atienza, Teddy Corpuz, Jugs Jugueta, Jhong Hilario, Ryan Bang and Coleen Garcia. Eric "Eruption" Tal had no lookalike but the Vhong Navarro lookalike seemed promising among the pack. We've met also the lookalike of the President Benigno Aquino (Pnoy) who made everyone laugh at how he impersonates even the coughing of our president.
It's Showtime KalokaLike Christopher De Leon (Jonathan Garcia) and Kim Chiu look-alike Kim Too hosted the press conference along with Umagang Kay Ganda host MJ Felipe. It was hard to control my laughter listening to the interview of each contestant especially the president and Apl De Ap. It was also interesting to watch the famous talent manager/entertainment columnist Alfie Lorenzo interview his KalokaLike contestant. Funny how he shared to us all the experience of being doubted by the ABS-CBN security guards as the look-alike when he entered the premises last week because of the impersonator's similar facial features.
It was a fun-filled press conference as each impersonator/lookalike try to answer the issues of the real personalities. Who will be the next It's Showtime Ultimate KalokaLike? Will she also be a commercial model like Kim Too? We have yet to determine what surprises the show will do next so keep watching It's Showtime daily at 12:30 and 12noon on Saturdays.
