Hole in the Wall

The game show, adapted from Japan's Brain Wall, has a concept that's genius in its silly physical inventiveness: Players must try to fit their bodies through a hole in the wall to avoid falling into a pool of water. The Philippine version on GMA Network ups the fun by hiring Ogie Alcasid and Michael V. as hosts in drag -- spoiled brat Angelina and her hardworking nanny Yaya, respectively -- characters they popularized in the gag show Bubble Gang. Every episode (weekdays) is a well-written comedy sketch. The gender bender gets even more ticklish whenever the perpetually smiling and perpetually shirtless lifeguard Edouard (Edouard George) -- who never speaks -- is summoned as the ultimate unrequited crush. Add to that, contestants in bodysuits -- sometimes they're hunky celebrities -- and you've got the gayest (as in happiest) diversion on afternoon TV right now.
