'Pilipinas Win na Win' co-hosts Janelle Jamer and Pokwang emphasize that their goal is to work together and not to compete against one each other.
Aside from The Hitmakers (namely Rico J. Puno, Marco Sison, Rey Valera, and Nonoy Zu'ntilde;iga), Janelle Jamer and Speedy G are the two new co-hosts of Pilipinas Win na Win, joining the show'rsquo;s original female co-hosts, Pokwang and Valerie Concepcion. Janelle used to be one of the original female co-hosts of the previous noontime show Wowowee, while Speedy G or Gazelle Canlas in real life, was a VJ on another TV network.
Janelle shared that when she was asked to become part of the show, she immediately asked who would be her co-hosts. "Para at least alam ko na agad ang gagawin ko sa dry run pa lang," she explained. "Tapos nung nalaman ko nga na Hitmakers, ah okay so mga singers puwede akong maki-jam. Nalaman ko na nandyan pa rin sina Pokie [at] Valerie, sabi ko hindi na ako masyadong mahihirapan."
Janelle also added that she is the type who does not hesitate to socialize with people. "Ugali ko talaga ang maki-mingle. 'lsquo;Pag feeling ko itong artistang ito matagal ko itong makakasama, kailangan kung mahiyain siya na lumapit sa akin, eh 'lsquo;di ako na lang ang lalapit para mas maging komportable." The singer-host explained that she does not want to fake chemistry on camera. "Kasi mas maganda 'lsquo;yung 'lsquo;pag nagho-host siya binabara-bara ko siya, tumatalon-talon ako sa likod ng camera, na hindi ka mapipikon dahil nag-bonding na kayo kaya parang matagal ko na rin siyang kasama.
Janelle also clarified that she is not out to compete with any of her fellow co-hosts and that all of them have been told that they should all unite to make each episode work. "Nung nag-Wowowee ako nun, kapag merong bagong hosts, never akong nagkaroon ng isyu na may kaaway ako," Janelle explained. "Ako ngayon, ako ang bagong pasok sa show nila, ako 'lsquo;yung talagang lumalapit na talagang nage-effort na mag-adjust at nage-effort na mas makilala ko pa 'lsquo;yung mga kasama ko sa trabaho." She said that aside from Wowowee, she and Pokwang have worked together before on other shows. "Si Val (Valerie) ngayon lang kami talaga naging magkatrabaho. Pero okay naman nag-uusap naman kami, ako talaga 'lsquo;yung lumalapit sa kanila para mas makilala ko sila para mas natural sa camera."
On the other hand, Pokwang confirmed Janelle'rsquo;s statement and is happy to have them on the show. "Nagbabalik na si Janelle at si G sa Uplate [kaya] dagdag saya rin sila in fairness naman," the comedienne beamed. She is also pleased that the two girls are spontaneous and funny. "Ibig sabihin non mas magiging masaya, mas magiging riot ang tanghalian ninyo, at least meron na akong makakabatuhan."
