Eat Bulaga's EB Babes has been phenomenal and controversial at the same time. Even though they are considered as Eat Bulaga's next big thing, their road to stardom was filled with intrigues and coincidence if I may say. During the time that the relationship of Eat Bulaga with Sex Bomb girls was a little rocky, Eat Bulaga trained and honed EB Babes' skills to replace the absense of the latter.
From hundreds of aspiring females, only 10 were chosen. But why are we only seeing 9 members on Eat Bulaga. Turns out that one of them (EB Babe Kim) was temporarily put on inactive status due to pregnancy.
Let's meet the EB Babes one by one inside. Then let us know who do you like best?
