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.

“Para silang nakawala sa hawla, super kulit nila, I had fun!” said Valerie.

“Ang kulit nila Lloydie, Billy at Luis, enjoy kami kanina sa show!” 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’s viewers said they prefer Robin’s style of hosting over the Kanto Boys.

“Mas magaling pa rin si Robin, mas gusto namin siya,” said a Wowowee fan.

Valerie said it was Robin’s 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.

“Kung iisipin namin na higitan yung ginawa ni Robin, hindi namin magagawa ng tama ang trabaho namin. Pumunta kami dito para magpasaya ng tao,” said John Lloyd.

“Pumunta kami dito para mapasaya ang mga fans ng Wowowee,” 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?

    The Kanto Boys are no match for Robin Padilla. So far Robin Padilla is the best male host Wowowee ever had. I just finished watching Wowowee with Billy Crawford and that was the worst segment I have ever seen. Billy Crawford is dull, corny, and grasping for words. To ABS-CBN Management, watch Monday’s (June 30) episode and you will see how dull it is. Even the people in the audience are not as thrilled as they should be. In fact, the Kanto Boys, cannot even measure up to Willie Revillame. But all of them, including Willie, are no match for Robin Padilla. Why don’t you look at the ratings? The last day Revillame appearded as host was beaten in the ratings by the first day with Robin Padilla with Wowowee shooting up to No. 1, even beating Showtime. Is that not enough for you to put Robin Padilla permanently as host? You have in Robin, a modest, good-looking, humble, funny, adorable host. Compare that with Revillame (who is boastful, condescending, lots-of-air-in-the-head, uncontrollable, egoistic, mayabang), and the Kanto Boys (who are dull, corny, uninteresting, and groping for words). Bring back Robin Padilla. Look at the ratings. He is the perfect host for Wowowee, a lot better, able, and entertaining than Willie or the Kanto Boys. Watch the ratings for each host. The ratings should tell you who is the best male host for Wowowee.
