'That's My Tambay' vs 'That's My Tomboy': Eat Bulaga imitates It's Showtime?

Is GMA-7’s noontime variety show Eat Bulaga trying to imitate ABS-CBN It’s Showtime’s “That’s My Tomboy” contest with “That’s My Tambay”?

That's My Tambay - Eat Bulaga

Recently, the Kapuso show launched the mini-segment which forms part of “All for Juan, Juan for All,” a barangay bayanihan segment.

Reports said “That’s My Tambay” is EB’s answer to the very popular beauty pageant for lesbians on It’s Showtime. Unlike its rival show, however, “That’s My Tambay” participants are straight males.


The mini-segment is reportedly EB host Joey de Leon’s idea. It provides the winner a chance to hone his talent and skills with free training, educational scholarship, and job employment opportunities.

Meanwhile, “That’s My Tomboy” gives away cash as prize.

While Eat Bulaga may have (sort of) imitated the title, it appears that the benefits of “That’s My Tambay” are way better than competition. What do you think?
