Karen Davila gives P100,000 vlog earnings to Herlene ‘Hipon Girl’ Budol
Herlene Budol, also known as “Hipon Girl,” expressed her gratitude after broadcaster Karen Davila gave her P100,000 in earnings from their YouTube interview vlog.
Budol showed what appears to be a deposit slip along with photos of her and Davila, via Budol’s Instagram page yesterday, April 25. Davila earlier stated that she would be sharing her vlog earnings to Budol as she was moved by the comedian’s kindness.
“Isang malaking karangalan po [ulit ‘yung nag-congratulate] si ma’am Karen Davila sa pag pasok ko sa Binibining Pilipinas 2022 at eto pa ang surpresa niya sa akin mga KaHipon at hanggang ngayon walang tigil iyak ko,” Budol said. “Ibinigay po [niya] sa akin yung earnings sa youtube [niya] nung ininterview [niya] sa akin nakaraan April 2 sa halagang 100,000 pesos po bago ako nag-register ng Binibining Pilipinas na umabot ng [2.2 million] views.”
(It is a big honor to be congratulated by ma’am Karen Davila for being able to enter Binibining Pilipinas 2022, and she even had a surprise for me which made me cry until now. She gave me her YouTube earnings, amounting to P100,000, from the interview vlog we had last April 2, which was released before I applied for Binibining Pilipinas and which has reached 2.2 million views.)
The comedian and former “Wowowin” host admitted that the money is a big help for her and her family, especially now that she is an official candidate of Binibining Pilipinas.
“Dahil [three months] ako bawal magtanggap ng trabaho at endorsement sa policy ng Binibining Pilipinas kaya umaasa na lang din ako ng income sa [YouTube channel] ko sa pag pa vlog!” she added.
(Since for three months I am not allowed to accept jobs and endorsements per policy of Binibining Pilipinas, I only rely on the income of my vlogs on my YouTube channel.)
