Despite the effort made by Dimples Romana by giving her judge's seat to the evicted Showtime judge Ryan Bang, the show's management decided to respect the decision of the voting public by following the outcome of the poll.
In a recent statement made by Showtime director Direk Bobet on Monday, October 10, he said that the rules of elimination doesn't allow another judge to give his/her seat to the eliminated hurado just to make him/her stay longer in the talent show.
Much to the sadness of Ryan Bang's fans, the Filipino-Korean remains burado and will not be seen on the show for the meantime. But, of course, they could always call him back on the show for whatever purpose.
Dimples didn't come back today as judge. As she said last Saturday, she was supposed to leave that day but she just postponed it to give the stage to Ryan (so they knew it beforehand). She sent a letter that was read by the show's director where she apologized for whatever misunderstanding she might have caused by giving her seat to Ryan (which didn't happen, anyway).
Jong Hilario was back on his seat. He's been getting the lowest votes which means the viewers really like him to stay.
New judges include the Malaysian superstar Carmen Su, Philippine Volcanoes players Eric Tai and Chris Everingham, and Luis Manzano. Carmen and Luis have been judges before while it's the first time for the footballers.
