We really, really wanted to catch her off guard this year, so we decided to deliver the big news live on national television. Sounds ambitious? Anything for The Queen!
So here's what we did: We asked the Eat Bulaga! family to be our willing accomplices and told them to surprise Marian during their All For Juan, Juan For All segment. So how did it materialize? Was the plan a complete success? Scroll down below and find out how the Big Reveal went down!
It all happened last Friday, June 27. We were told that Marian will be at Barangay San Vicente in Sto. Tomas, Batangas for All For Juan, Juan For All, so we all hopped in a van and went on an instant out-of-town trip to surprise the Nation' Finest. This is a snap our photographer took before we went on snooze-mode on our way there.
Upon arriving at San Vicente, we noticed that the people were already busy lining up for the show's Bayanihan segment. Participants were required to bring plastic bottles and a bowl of their home-cooked meals. Kung may kanin lang sana!
After making our way through the crowd, we caught a glimpse of Dabarkads Ruby Rodriguez and Wally Bayola!
Jose Manalo then came out of his tent to mingle with his fans. We all thought: Si Marian na ang next!
After a few minutes, the floor director instructed us to stay on cue because we're about to go on air. Wait, where's Marian?
Suddenly, a van came honking. At this time, the place was ready to erupt!
