“‘Di ba ganoon talaga ‘pag may paghihirap ka sa buhay, pagkatapos ng paghihirap ‘yung ngiti mo, ngiti ng tagumpay. ‘Yung pagbuhat mo Hidilyn, binuhat mo ‘yung kung gaano kabigat ‘yan alam mo naman na medyo bagsak na bagsak tayong lahat ‘di ba,” Kuya Wil said.
The veteran host also said that this victory of Hidilyn is very important in uplifting the spirit of many Filipinos who feel down amid the pandemic and the difficulties this situation brought to the country. “Pero nung binubuhat mo ‘yan, inangat mo ang bansang Pilipinas saan man sulok ng mundo,” Willie Revillame said.
