The Philippine TV Comic Millionaire
Who can imagine that a poor showbiz underdog personality that begins in the Philippine showbiz as a mere extra into a favorite naughty comic side-kick of most Philippine action stars in their respective movies surprises the entire Philippines showbiz land when he becomes an instant millionaire by just hosting a regular daily noontime show on ABS-CBN Channel 2 having a salary of more than 20 million pesos a month.
But this was just a rough assumption of his monthly income because the management of ABS-CBN Channel 2 never reveals the real deal of his monthly income. Actually, some guess that it could be 25 million pesos per month or even more than a whooping 40 million pesos a month because he files a 40 million pesos tax regularly on the Bureau of Internal Revenue or BIR.
It is really surprising that his talent fee have accelerated into so much height that even the president of the Philippines never have a salary like it, yet this comic Philippine star still express complains on his own noontime show or is he just so pressured and stress of his popularity and instant riches and wealth?
Of course, what I am talking about is Mr. Wowowee – Willie Revillame, who has a public life or an open life ever since he began joining showbiz. Every Filipino TV viewers have witness his ups and downs and now his condition from rags into riches. Some loves him but some hates him because of his naughty and straightforward mouth. His noontime show –Wowowee have beaten the No.1 ratings of its competitor noontime show – Eat Bulaga, one time.
