On the other hand, as a judge of Starstruck, some netizens refute the credibility of the comedian-host. Based on the article published on the site of Bandera, Jose received criticisms as it was alleged that he is one of the Starstruck judges.
Here are some of the negative comments from netizens
“Mabuti pa si Bitoy na lang or si Dingdong Dantes, Jose halos araw araw mo na sila nakikita sa TV.”
“He doesn’t deserve to be a judge, he’s not even a matinee celebrity, he’s a comedian.”
“Huwag naman siya please! Maraming mas deserving.”
However, based on the article, a netizen who defended the EB host had this statement: “Jose Manalo is a multi-talented comedian and actor, so pwedeng pwede siya mag judge, he knows a talent when he sees one. Ayan na naman yung mga haters gusto yata taga UP, Ateneo at DLSU ang mag judge sa StarStruck.”
