While Willie Revilla is still in indefinite leave in the ABS-CBN top-rated noontime show Wowowee, the management of ABS-CBN is trying to find a perfect host or hosts for the show. Last Saturday (May 29, 2010 Philippines time), guest host Robin Padilla ended his 2-weeks hosting stints for the Wowowee and he was replaced with three young actors namely John Lloyd Cruz, Luis Mansano and Billy Crawford or collectively known as the Kanto Boys.
The 3 of the most-sought bachelors in the Philippine showbiz vowed to deliver the best they got to make the show more fun and entertaining. The Kanto Boys are set for 2-weeks hosting stint in Wowowee, after two weeks we will know if the John Lloyd, Luis and Billy will stay on Wowowee for good.
Wowowee co-hosts Valerie Concepcion and Pokwang were delighted with the way the Manzano, Cruz and Crawford handled the hosting.
‚ÄúPara silang nakawala sa hawla, super kulit nila, I had fun!‚Äù said Valerie.
‚ÄúAng kulit nila Lloydie, Billy at Luis, enjoy kami kanina sa show!‚Äù said Pokwang.
On Friday, Robin thanked ABS-CBN management and the show’s staff for giving him an opportunity to host Wowowee. He said he will forever treasure his experiences on the show.
“Isang napakalaking karangalan po ang maging bahagi ng Wowowee. Ako po ay nagpapasalamat sa ABS-CBN, sa staff, maraming salamat sa inyo. Sa mga dancers, musicians, technicians, sa guards, sa ating crowd control, at siyempre po sa inyong lahat,” Robin said.
Some of Wowowee‚Äôs viewers said they prefer Robin‚Äôs style of hosting over the Kanto Boys.
‚ÄúMas magaling pa rin si Robin, mas gusto namin siya,‚Äù said a Wowowee fan.
Valerie said it was Robin‚Äôs character that attracted more followers to the show.
‚ÄúMabait kasi si Binoe, mga 1 hour nagpapa-picture lang siya sa mga fans, talagang we’re grateful he shared his time with us,‚Äù she said.
The trio of Luis, Billy and John Lloyd, however, refused to be affected by the comments on their hosting style.
‚ÄúKung iisipin namin na higitan yung ginawa ni Robin, hindi namin magagawa ng tama ang trabaho namin. Pumunta kami dito para magpasaya ng tao,‚Äù said John Lloyd.
‚ÄúPumunta kami dito para mapasaya ang mga fans ng Wowowee,‚Äù said Billy.
I guess, the Wowowee management is trying to find a good combination that could hold appeal to both young and old audiciences. Do you think the Kanto Boys is the answer?
