The only gambling that he does is bingo, according to the comedian. And Super Tekla does not even consider it gambling.

“Nagbi-bingo ako. I never thought na that its gambling. Kasi di ba sa mga fund raising mayroon namang bingo,” he said during an interview with Nelson Canlas of GMA News.

Rumors and speculation quickly spread on social media when Super Tekla went missing from Wowowin, even before it was confirmed that he had been fired. Netizens said Willie Revillame kicked him out of the afternoon game show after he went back to his previous vices – illegal drugs and gambling.

“Ano ang reason ko bakit pa ako babalik dun? Kasi alam mo ba ang taong nagda-drugs or if you’re intoxicated ng drugs hindi ka makakapag-isip nang maayos, ‘pag once naka-drugs ka, lutang ka eh. Pinagdaanan ko na ‘yon.”

As to his future plans, the comedian who gained fame through Wowowin, clarified that he has no intention of leaving GMA Network. According to him, he values ‘utang na loob’.
