The Pilipinas Win na Win hosts are happy with new MTRCB Chairman Grace Poe's appointment.
The Hitmakers---Rico J. Puno, Marco Sison, Rey Valera and Nonoy Zuniga---congratulate the newly appointed Movie and Television Review and Classification Board Chairwoman Grace Poe. They welcome her with open arms as she is no stranger to them being the daughter of the late King of Philippine Movies Fernando Poe Jr. "Congratulations lalo na kasi colleague namin yun sa industriya, more or less siguro mas maiintindihan niya yung sistema ng industriya because artista rin ang kanyang daddy. 'lsquo;Tsaka iba yung medyo best friend ko yung daddy niya pati mommy niya rin,' Rico said. They see communication lines between MTRCB and the showbiz industry becoming more open and unprejudiced because of the new management.
Marco, on the other hand, admitted that they are trying their best to sound decent as they can when they are hosting Pilipinas Win na Win so as to avoid any circumstances that could risk the welfare of the show, just like what Wowowee faced when it was still airing. "Kung hindi ako nagkakamali si Ms. Grace is one of the youngest na naging MTRCB Chairman. So siyempre mas updated siya at mas malalim siguro hindi ko naman sinasabi na hindi malalim yung mga previous, sa akin lang, since she comes from an entertainment-oriented family, mas maluwag siguro ngayon, hopefully. Ma'am Grace, welcome po," Marco said.
In their three weeks stay Pilipinas Win na Win, they've already had several running jokes. One of those is that, among the four of them, it is Rico who is having a hard time behaving on air. "Ma'am Grace, parang awa niyo na po, sana lawak-lawakan niyo po ng konti ang isip niyo at hindi alam ni Rico ang kanyang ginagawa. Kami po ang nagsisilbing MTRCB sa kanya so huwag po kayong mag-alala," Rey shared.
"Ako naman hindi ako worried sa sarili ko, worried lang ako sa kaibigan ko kasi minsan alam kong nagpipigil siya talaga kaya before kami mag-on air, binubuga na niya agad para pagdating sa live, wala na, na-edit na niya yung sarili niya and that's already an accomplishment as far as he is concerned. Dala rin yun ng kanyang pangangailangan, siyempre maraming obligasyon ang kaibigan natin so happy kami para sa kanya," Marco said.
Rico explained his side on the matter "Ang laking tulong nila, e. Kasi minsan when I am about to say something, (they remind me). kaya kailangan namin sa isa't-isa, kailangan kontrolin nila ako." He also shared that they joke about how long they will last, hosting the show. "Ang umpisa nun tinaningan namin yung pagho-host namin ng one week lang, but I think we have already surpassed the test of time in one week modesty aside, we were able to make it with your help, nai-try po namin maitaas yung ratings. Ang problema po namin kung paano masu-sustain. At gagawin po namin ang best namin para dun. Medyo naging successful po kami dahil sa inyo, kayo lang po ang magsasabing tama na, kayo lang din po ang magsasabi na sige pa. Kagaya nga ng sabi ni Rey Valera,
