"Inuuna nyo yang 'Hello, Garci.' Bakit hindi niyo muna unahin itong 'Hello, Pappy' (You want to look into 'Hello, Garci' first. Why don't you investigate 'Hello, Pappy' before that)" De Leon said.
The alleged scam happened in Wilyonaryo when, after the contestant named "Weng" won P137,000 after she chose the money over the wheel, Revillame unveiled the wheels where the 1 million, 2 million, .5 million and house & lot were placed. Unfortunately, when Revillame said that the 2 million was on the violet wheel, it turned out to be ZERO! Co-host Mariel Rodriguez even said "Ay wala!(Ah, there's none!)". Then Revillame said that the 2 million was on him. That turned out to be confusing on the part of the audience and even on my part because I was able to watch the show.
Roxas said that the probe was in aid of legislation.
“We will look into this [Wowowee controversy] by first asking the DTI [Department of Trade and Industry] what are the complaints, who are the complainants, and what it has done and intends to do about this matter," Roxas said in a statement.“Based on this information, we shall file an appropriate resolution for a Senate inquiry with the end goal of strengthening the Consumer Welfare Code,” he added.
