The Hitmakers member Nonoy Zuniga shares that he and his contemporaries enjoy being hosts of Pilpinas Win na Win.
Local music icon Nonoy Zuniga explained in a recent interview that he and the rest of The Hitmakers'mdash;Rico J. Puno, Rey Valera, and Marco Sison'mdash;are still adjusting to their latest stint as hosts of the noontime show Pilipinas Win na Win. Nonoy said that he still has to adjust to the nature of the show because his only experience in hosting was the public service show, Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko.'nbsp; "Iba naman ang hosting dun, eh. Medyo formal, hindi naman ako pwedeng makipagbiruan dun, eh. Public service show 'lsquo;yun. Ito, iba ito, entertainment show tapos tanghalian pa. Iba 'lsquo;yung energy level," he related.
Asked how he is adjusting so far with hosting, he answered, "Konti pa. I'rsquo;m getting into it na. Unang-una talaga parang wow parang nasa dream ako, eh. Para kong lumulutang, totoo ba ito, ba'rsquo;t nangyayari ito?"
The Hitmakers werer assigned to Pilipinas Win na Win in an effort to improve its ratings and Nonoy did not deny the fact that they feel pressured about it but they try not to forget about enjoying work at the same time. "We just have to enjoy what we'rsquo;re doing and improve more in areas where we are not really strong. Kasi sa song when it comes to performing, [gamay] na namin 'lsquo;yan. In hosting na lang and more entertaining games siguro. 'lsquo;Pag nag-jive lahat 'lsquo;yan ang ganda-ganda ng show talaga. Kasi now we'rsquo;re still adjusting actually everyday may ginagawang pagbabago kahit paonti-onti lang pero merong ginagawang pagbabago and adjustments, hindi 'lsquo;yung ito na 'lsquo;yung buong show. Tinitingnan pa namin kung ano 'lsquo;yung right combination, games, hosting, and jokes 'lsquo;yung mga ganon," explained Nonoy.
Nonoy also said that he wants Pilipinas Win na Win to become a showbiz institution. "Like Eat, Bulaga. Antagal-tagal na niyan. 'lsquo;Yung prior to Eat, Bulaga ay Student Canteen. Maging family-oriented itong TV show na musical." He said further, "Ngayon puro game shows, eh kulang sa kantahan talaga so para sa amin 'lsquo;yun ang kaibahan namin sa ibang game shows. Kasi dito talaga may live singing and performing."
He also related that one of the big adjustments that they needed to do is their sleep routine. "Kami talaga mga night people natutulog kami pinakamaaaga naming tulog 2 to 3 am." He said that this time, they sleep earlier so that they can come to the show on time. "Talagang naga-adjdust kami, naiba na 'lsquo;yung lifestyle namin natutulog na kami ng alas-dose alas-onse."
