Nikko Seagal Natividad, the 21-year-old waiter who works in a “casual restaurant,” ultimately impressed the audience and defeated 57 other grand finalists of the show’s segment for working men to take home P300,000.
Natividad who hails from Malolos City, Bulacan could not hold back his tears after being proclaimed the first grand winner of “Gandang Lalaki” on “It’s Showtime” on Saturday.
Each grand finalist was asked:
“Kung ihahalintulad mo ang trabaho mo sa isang hayop, anong hayop ito at bakit?”
“Aso po. Kasi po parang aso po, maamo po sa tao ‘yan. Kailangan maamo ka sa mga tao kaya parang waiter po, may makitang pumasok na tao, kahit hindi namin kakilala ‘yan, obligado kaming maging maamo sa kanila.”
“Hindi lang dahil sa trabaho namin ito. ‘Yun naman po kasi ang tama. Pag may nakita kang tao, ‘hi o hello.’ Sana po makasanayan natin maging parang aso na maging maamo kahit hindi mo kakilala ‘yung isang tao.”
