That's My Tomboy Grand Finals winner - Epey Herher

'That's My Tomboy' grand winner has been named today and she is April Mariz "Epey" Herher.

39 tomboy or 'tibo' or lesbian candidates competed to become the first ever 'That's My Tomboy' Grand Winner on ABS-CBN noontime variety show 'It's Showtime' earlier today, February 1, 2014.

Out of the 39 grand finalists, the Top 10 were called to perform a talent number and then they were later trimmed down to 5 for the final Question and Answer Portion where each of them was given the common question: "Para sa 'yo, ano ang ibig sabihin ng salitang 'tagumpay'?"

The answer of Candidate #10 April Mariz "Epey" Herher stood out among the 5 when she finished it with the quote "To God the honor, to my neighbors the benefit and to myself the burden" which according to her was a quote by Blessed Arnold Janssen. It obviously impressed the judges thus giving her the highest score, and crowned her as the winner.

However, according to one website, the quote came from Blessed Maria Virgo and not from St. Arnold Janssen. (Virgo and Janssen anyway were co-founders of the Divine Word Missionary Sisters.)

Wildcard finalist #39 Rejoice "Phao" Faraon also made buzz online when she responded "Finger Foods" to a "joke" question from Vice Ganda.

Vice asked her, "Kung ikaw ay iimbitahang pumunta sa condo ni Denise Laurel para manood ng 'Annaliza', ano ang dadalhin mong foods?" (obviously in reference to the Vhong Navarro-Deniece Cornejo "Condo" controversy)

The contestant answered, "Finger Foods!"

I'm sure she had something else "naughty" running in her mind that's why she said finger foods.

Both 'Denise Laurel' and 'Finger Foods' became Twitter's top trending topics in the Philippines.

The judges who had the tough task of choosing the winner were international singing sensation (a "tomboy" herself) Charice, Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas, The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles host Iza Calzado, hot Brazilian-Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga and resident "hurado", Sample King Jhong Hilario.
