Mar Roxas' and Korina Sanchez's Election Ploy



Mar Roxas and Korina SanchezLast April 25, 2009, what is usually a game show strangely turned into a celebrity question and answer session when Wowowee's host Willie Revillame cut a significant amount of time from Wowowee to interview Senator Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez regarding their love life and marriage plans. With the majority of the Filipino masses tuned onto the screen to watch Wowowee, it leaves many wondering why this question and answer session, which seemed more fit for a celebrity gossip show, was held instead on this ultra-popular noon-time show.

In the interview, Korina Sanchez and Senator Mar Roxas are seen being overly sweet, exaggeratedly dramatic, and with the forced tears by Mar Roxas (which just needed to be pointed out)--very plastic. But Korina Sanchez, as well as many other celebrities and media figures, are known for being fake, plastic, snobs, and for being suplada. So, what makes this question and answer session unique? I already mentioned the first clue, which is that Wowowee is not supposed to be a celebrity gossip show.

Cutting straight to the point, this Wowowee interview is clearly an election ploy by Senator Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez, who plan on running for the Philippine presidency in 2010 and obtaining the First Lady throne, respectively. They are trying to reach the masses, and quite wisely chose Wowowee as their instrument. And I really wonder how much money and future kickbacks Willie Revillame will get for his part as interviewer and appealer of the masses, especially if the tandem does make it to the MalacaƱang Palace. They realistically do have a big(ger) chance now with this "cute" Wowowee interview and bonus recaps/reruns on the news via ABS-CBN's TV Patrol program.

And if that wasn't obvious enough, Senator Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez opted to become the primary sponsors for a set of babies (quintuplets), who were televised as being in desperate need of help. Mar and Korina to the rescue! All in all, I must say, perfect timing.

Below is the Mar and Korina interview video segment from Wowowee:

i never liked korina. i have seen and heard her curse and swear to the max. i believe she is a social climber. too bad mar fell for her. he could have married somebody more refined and well bred. oh well, ambitions.,,ambitions, ambitions.

I think Mar lost more votes than he could have gained the day they did this tv thingy. If he had to get engaged, it could have been done quietly. If he had to have a fiancee, she could have been a respectable lady that people would have loved to support.

Such a waste of goodwill...

she even said, from one of her last radio show. she'll be back in six years. anong ibig sabihin nito? naninigurado na sya ang magiging first lady ni mar. how SAD. sana matalo sila...

Duh! Apparently another political gimmick! Many people can’t help but see beyond the pretenses. How dare her use the term "Masa na kami ngayon". Seems like they're banking on fooling the masa as if we're that stupid. Korina’s not really a good actress for playing the part of a swooning bride. I don’t really plan to vote this election (like the past 2 presidential elections) but i will just to do my part of ensuring this couple won’t make it to MalacaƱang. I'm sorry to tell hindi kami kinikilig.. we are disgusted!

here is another thing about fakes... he(mar roxas) stated on a magazine(i think its yes magazine) that korina is more important than the presidency, that he would even give up his candidacy just for her and her only. then why does he still running for presidency next year, if his life is complete with korina? the thing is they are humbling thier self just for now so that they can twist the minds of the masses, and they think they are stupid to fall for thier trap. and if they win, they'll be corrupt just like past presidents("MGA GAHAMAN AT BABOY NG LIPUNAN") well here's for you mar and korina "SHUT UP AND GET A LIFE YOU LOSERS, DOING ANYTHING JUST TO WIN THE 2010 ELECTIONS" and i dont like korina to be our first lady cause our country will be cursed by this "FOULMOUTHED SWEARING BITCH"

perhaps this is the Lopez clan's master plan of king-making in our country.

1. build up a media or showbiz star by using sensationalist journalism and variety shows w/ toilet humor.

2. when they are really popular, get them into running for office! our voters are quite gullible (sad to say) and they love the glamor and pomp.

3. when they do become president, then ABS-CBN will dominate the country w/ their showbiz thralls.


check out these "new trapos" who've benefited from this:

Noli De Castro
Loren Legarda
Vilma Santos

who's the old trapo? Erap & co. of course!

This would work nicely for Mar & Korina. And Willie Wowowee as well. I bet people will forgive him after he cries on camera (damn actors) and then he may even run for office someday.

(makes me wonder, why don't those silly leftist congressmen blast these opportunistic showbiz trapos. oh wait, they're fakes too. lousy reds)

Yes I agree Korina is a social climber. Mar Roxas fell for her for his ambition to be president. Korina will take advantage of the money being a first lady. Another corrupt administration. I prefer Noynoy-Mar tandem. If Mar is sincere to serve he can be vice president and do a lot of projects to really help the poor. I want NoyNoy to be president and Kiko Pangilinan to win the VP.

Do not trust Korina social climber! Mar had nothing to lose by marrying Korina. He is gay anyway!
