Controversy[edit]

On September 2, 2013, a sex scandal of Bayola and EB Babes dancer, Yosh Rivera, went viral in social media sites. The video, in which both of them are seen engaging in sexual intercourse, was uploaded onto YouTube that night. The video was immediately removed from the site but it was already circulated to other sites such as Facebook. After the scandal became known, it was reported that Bayola would temporarily not be appearing on Eat Bulaga!, as stated by his manager, Malou Choa Fagar who said the comedian "will lie low from the program".[8] Rivera has not appeared on Eat Bulaga! since,[9] and Bayola did not appear until five months later on February 8, 2014, when he made an appearance on that day only on Eat Bulaga! during the "Juan for All, All for Juan" segment. He emerged holding a birthday cake for his comedy partner Jose Manalo, and then expressed his apologies.[10]
