When we met Bela Padilla during the press launch for the Yahoo! OMG Awards, we knew we had to guest her. She’s drop-dead gorgeous, and has a sharp wit about her to boot! So when she got to the station, she was rarin’ to go, and hit the ground running.
Of course we had to have our epic pic. I have no idea why i tried to fit my face into the kettle bell handle, but I guess I’m odd that way. I look like a shmooshed duck. As always, everybody else looks normal.
Then of course came our epic rap-off. We skipped a week and missed one rap-off, mostly due to my “Lindsay Lohan”-ish episode, so we promised to make up for it this week. Hopefully we didn’t disappoint. At least we got it in one take! Again, our endless thanks to @JRhyan for always recording our celebrity guests on video every single time, even though he hadn’t had a stitch of sleep. Duper kaduper thanks Jaime!!!
Bela actually sounds good enough to be on radio. She’s got this really nice “cool chick” timbre to her voice, and she’s got a really adorable laugh that sounds interminable cute on air. Talk about a complete package! Thanks again, Bela!!!

It was quite a treat having Rocco Nacino over to join the fun on The Morning Rush, because he was very much game to join whatever kulitan we had in store for him! Of course he had his fan sign for the Rushers:
And, every single time we have a guest in the booth, we cannot NOT have an Epic Pic, this one with Rocco gamely showing us his “abs”!
And of course, our now notorious Epic Rap-Off! This was a first, because Rocco joined the Rap-Off, the first guest of ours to actually join in the rapping!
We even had to do a take 2, but it’s all good, it all turned out funny in the end. I didn’t get to enjoy our little Magic Mike moment there, since I didn’t want to flub my part, so watching this was actually the first time I saw what actually happened. Special thanks to @JRhyan for documenting Rocco’s guesting, for posting it on YouTube, and for giving Rocco a copy of our book as a souvenir! Wow, he gets to think of the stuff that we should be on top of. Again, thanks Jaime! I do hope he comes back for seconds, and expect more guestings like Rocco’s in the future! Tell us who you want to have on the show, and if we can wrangle it, we will! Or better yet, if you have contacts to the celebs you want on the show, maybe you can help us out.
Leveling up!!! Thanks to @JRhyan for uploading this!
It took 4 tries before we got it right, the most tries ever for an Epic Rap-Off. Dedicated to the one we love. Hehehe…
Thanks @jrhyan for uploading this! Grabe, funny pala to watch it. Siyempre I was concentrating on the rap that I don’t realize so many things are happening pala. Hay naku, it was fun talaga this morning! Buti nalang game si Xian!
And here’s the message Xian had for the Rushers!
Ever wonder how we look like when we’re doing the show? Here are a couple of snippets that would give you an idea. Thanks to JRhyan for uploading these!
Wow, I missed posting the Epic Rap-Offs! Let me start off again from #8, when we thought it was the final rap-off. Wow, we sounded so raw! So amateur! Not like now, sounding so pro…
