061111-juday-main.jpgJudy Ann Santos is gearing up for her television comeback as host of ABS-CBN’s Junior Master Chef: Pinoy Edition. When asked about her preparation for her much anticipated return, she joked, “Ang unang unang preparation ko ay ang pagpapapayat, ha ha ha!

But the thing that Judy Ann finds most challenging about JMC is that for the first time in her twenty years of being in the business, she will act as a host. The dramatic star admitted that she considers hosting a foreign territory. “Merong kaba kasi ngayon lang talaga ako magho-host, at reality show pa na puro bata. Dapat maging very careful sa mga sasabihin at sa mga galaw.”

Judy Ann revealed that she is watching the Australian version of JMC so she can learn a few tips on how she will host once the Pinoy edition begins. “Pinapanood ko ‘yung Australian version. Wala kasi talaga akong alam sa hosting kaya dapat matutunan ko ‘yung how to deal with kids, how to talk to them. Inaaral ko rin ‘yun mga technical aspect. Hindi ko talaga linya ang hosting. Bagong field siya for me so gusto ko siyang tutukan kasi ayoko ring mapahiya.

Aside from that, Judy Ann confessed that she also asked for pointers from her husband, Ryan Agoncillo, who is the more familiar and skilled when it comes to hosting duties. “Humihingi ako ng tips kay Ryan. Ang sabi lang niya, ‘Just go with the flow.’ Kasi ang mga bata naman talaga ang magdadala ng show. Kami maga-assist lang, magbibigay ng tips.”

Now that she is a mother of two children, Judy Ann has grown to love kids more than ever, that’s why she said she is very much excited to meet the young contestants of JMC. She said that she looks forward to every taping day that she gets to be with a bunch of children with whom she shares a common passion for cooking. “I think once we start doing the show automatic ‘yun na ang magiging bonding namin. For sure wala na kaming ibang choice kung hindi magusap habang naghihintay sa taping. Sa ngayon nakikita ko nang magiging masaya itong Junior Master Chef.

Judy Ann admitted that she has now become very picky about the projects that she will do both on TV and on the big screen. The reason she agreed to host JMC is that she believes the program will impart teaching and inspiration to many Filipino children and even to their parents and other grownups. “Sana kapag napanood niyo itong JMC ay ma-inspire ang lahat na magluto. Kasi kung kaya ng mga bata, bakit naman hindi kakayanin ng mga matatanda? Sana maturuan din nito ‘yung mga bata na gumawa ng ibang masayang bagay aside from playing computer or watching TV. Magandang lesson ang pagluluto kasi madadala nila itong hanggang pagtanda nila.”
