During its February 23, 2014 episode, the program focused mostly on presenting various angles of the case involving the 24-year-old ex-beauty pageant contestant who claims that she is a rape victim of the actor-host.

"Buzz Ng Bayan" interviewed Cabanero and other personalities who were dragged in the controversy including TV host-actor Vice Ganda and a representative of Astoria Plaza Hotel in Ortigas where Cabanero allegedly stayed on April 24, 2010.

The hotel's project director, Ric Valenzuela, said the Miss Bikini Philippines 2010 candidates have not checked in on the given date. Upon verifying their database, he confirmed that Cabanero's name did not appear in the list of hotel guests.

Also interviewed was Gwen Villanueva, manager of Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park, the venue of Vice Ganda's 2010 concert where Navarro performed reportedly on the same night Cabanero was allegedly raped.

Villanueva said she saw Navarro inside the resort on April 24. The actor, she said, was "not feeling well" that night. The hotel manager added that she was on the show and had remembered seeing Navarro on stage.

"Buzz Ng Bayan" had a "premium exclusive" report on Cabanero's past particularly at the time she became a candidate of a beauty pageant in Cebu and her getting disqualified in Binibining Pilipinas 2011 over an alleged nude photo scandal.

The show likewise aired interviews on Cabanero's former pageant trainers and production staff.

The investigative reports of "Buzz Ng Bayan" helped clarified issues surrounding the widely discussed rape case as different sides and versions of the story were presented in a comprehensive, precised and balanced way.
