Toni Gonzaga on Robi Domingo and Martin Concio: 'They're not there to replace anybody'


102311-toni-main.jpgAs the lead host of Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited, Toni Gonzaga can hardly wait to present to the viewers the latest offerings of the country’s number one reality show this season. “Kami po nila Bianca Gonzalez, Robi Domingo at Martin Concio ay magiging bahagi po ng pinakabagong season ng PBB. Sa halos isang taon na paghihintay ninyo, napakaraming malalaking surpresa at pasabog ang inihanda ni kuya. Sa kombinasyon pa lang ng mga housemates, talagang tututukan ni’yo na bawat araw at gabi ang PBB Unlimited. Walang kapantay ang mga posibilidad at experiences sa season na ito.”

The addition of Robi and Martin had raised a few issues, however, since they would be filling in the position of Mariel Rodriguez as host. To which Bianca replied, “Actually, si Robi at si Martin ay additions talaga as hosts. It just so happened na nabawasan kami ng isa. Ito pa rin yung family namin. Toni has been with PBB since the very first edition. Ako naman po naging housemate ako for the first celebrity edition. Iba rin yung may mas batang lalaki na perspective sa hosting experience. Kami naman ni Toni, parang every season nagro-grow kami together. Refreshing na kasama si Robi at Martin.”

Toni added that it’s unfair to think of Robi and Martin as substitutes since they have their own strengths to contribute in the show. “We don’t want to think of it as a replacement kasi whatever it is na pinagsamahan at napanood ni’yo dati sa PBB, buo na po yung pamilya namin sa PBB. We’d like to think of Robi and Martin as additions to the family and they’re not there to replace anybody. We are there to work as a team, to present a new season of PBB and that’s what we’re looking forward this season.”

On his part, Robi shared that it’s a dream come true to co-host a program which launched his showbiz career. At the same time, he’s grateful to Toni and Bianca for making him feel welcome in the show. “Ang dami kong preparations. Binabalikan ko yung lessons sa wika nung high school ako. Kasi dati na-i-intimidate ako kay ate Toni and ate Bianca kasi makakasama ko yung mga pinakamagagaling na hosts. But they always make me feel comfortable kapag kasama nila ako. So as the show progresses, I think mas magiging solid pa po yung PBB ngayon.
