Is Jay R moving to ABS-CBN?

Rumors are rife as to the transfer of R&B singer Jay R from GMA-7 to ABS-CBN. Here’s a report from the Manila Bulletin: Jay R, the goodlooking singer-rapper-TV host from GMA 7, is indeed being wooed by Studio 23, ABS-CBN’s UHF-TV channel, to appear in one of its new shows. However, there is apparently no truth to the buzz that Jay R is being offered a handsome seven-figure monthly talent fee just to be seen on Studio 23. Most people note that Jay R’s talents have not been maximized lately on GMA-7, where he is simply relegated to hosting the Sunday noontime show, “SOP.” Jay R’s hordes of fans will agree that the talented artist can do more, given the opportunities to display his talent on TV. He can show that he’s not just a (Bench) poster and billboard boy who can bare his great physique. Jay R’s talent manager, Arnold Vegafria, has reportedly negotiated with Studio 23 bigwigs for Jay-R’s TV contract. Will his Studio 23 entry pave the way for his eventual transfer to ABS-CBN?  And, if you ask me, I will just wait for this singer’s appearance at the Bench underwear show this month. Let’s see how he will fare in this supposedly R-18 Blackout show of Bench.

  1. nakasex nya na yung friend ko na girlash medium lang daw ang nota pero mabango madalas yan sa girlie bars !!!lol

  2. obvious naman noh na mininota yan si JR. kanta na lang siya wag na siya pa sexy at walang ibbubuga.

  3. To anonymous (July 5 8:49PM) Sobrang sayang ka dyan! Long overdue JayR. ABS-CBN is the best! TFC (Ch 2) has millions of Filipino subscribers abroad which means easy name recall and exposure. Bakit may sikat bang taga ch 7 among pinoys abroad? Most of them are unknown to these Pinoys and therefore would not buy their movies/shows/songs. May kilala silang taga chanel 7 siguro yung tatlong itlog na notorious! You know who they are!

  4. Sana lumipat na lang siya. ABS will definitely maximize his talents, not just in singing and hosting, but acting too. Look what they are doing to Billy Crawford.

    Mas gumanda ang ASAP with Billy and Jay-R. Lacking ng R&B kasi.

    Anyway, I’m excited about the Bench fashion show too. Sexy naman si Jay-R. Gusto ko yung Bench Body 300 shoot niya.

  5. Ewww…!!!

    I don’t even know why He’s considered as “GoodLooking”, moreso featured in a Site called “Hot Men in the Philippines”… It’s a Total Mystery to Me…

  6. ang galing naman si RDDANTES lang meron ganitong photo ng BENCH saan galing to? great photo blog. kabog!

  7. TFC is a flop abroad. 2 million viewers? that’s NADA, compared to the total pinoys in the 4 corners of N.America. even so, majority of subscribers are retired seniors (early arrivals) who are homesick and would only flip the “box” to watch old F.P.J., Joseph E. or Daboy movie flicks. pampalipas oras lang while waiting to doze off and call it another day…pinoy TV shows? one time i was with my parents in a pinoy resto and their TFC was playing at their plasma TV. my mom and dad kept on asking “sino yan”, “sino yan”. sagot naman ako. finally, i got tired of answering their questions. point of the matter, majority (take note MAJORITY) of pinoys are non-knowledgeable of pinas TV/movies/show people and happenings on the showbiz world. they don’t care at all. besides, my caldereta was getting cold… on movies/songs/shows, that’s another topic to ponder later. by the way, the TV show playing at the resto was Boy Abunda’s.

  8. I agree with Anonymous (July 6, 2008 6:07 PM) about this overhyped popularity of TFC in the US. He hit the nail right on its head. Mga elderly ang nanonood ng mga shows at panay nga ang tanong nila kung sino ‘yan, sino ‘to.

    Si Ed, kaduda-duda. Taga-ABS-CBN pala ang bru. “yan ang pino-propagate ng Kampamilya para maakit nila ang mga stars na pumasa-kanila na. Ang I tell you, marami nang kumagat, mula kay Gary V, Angel, and now Jay-R?

    No great loss to GMA-7, if he flies the coop. RD, did you say Jay-R has hordes of fans? And they will agree that the talented artist can do more, given the opportunities to display his talent on TV. You may be right, dre, pero I think he has seen better days. Naipakita na niya ang dapat ipakita, singing RnB man or that tantalizing button bulging in his Bench crotch several years ago.
