Judy Ann Santos says she is looking for the right project to mark her showbiz comeback.
Judy Ann Santos and husband Ryan Agoncillo visited the photo shoot of the judges of the upcoming ABS-CBN reality show Junior MasterChef
last May 19. Judy Ann will serve as the new host of the Philippine version of the popular reality show while the judges will be renowned chefs Fern Aracama, Rolando Laudico, and JP Anglo. “Galing din kami sa
meeting. Ang sabi sa amin nandito nga sila
chef for the pictorial kaya dumaan kami. Gusto ko rin sila makita para
extra bonding na rin
with sina chef. Dumaan lang si
Ryan sa conference namin
after ng work niya.
Since wala pa siyang ibang
call time nagpasama muna ako ngayon
,” Judy Ann told Push.com.ph and other reporters following the shoot.
Judy Ann admitted that she is very much excited about hosting JMC since she knows she’ll be learning lots of new things from the chef judges. “Feeling ko mas marami pa akong matututunan kaysa sa mga bata. Kaya sobrang
excited na ako kasi parang magaaral ako uli. Bawat
chef kasi may kanya-kanyang
is a show where children compete to see who has the makings of a future chef. ABS-CBN has acquired the rights to make a Pinoy version of this show through the same team behind Pinoy Big Brother
The young superstar and her TV host husband are now parents to two children, Yohan and Lucho. Judy Ann shared that her being a mother might help her guide the kids amidst the pressure brought about by the competition in JMC. “Parang
mother nga yata talaga ang magiging
role ko, ha ha ha! Hindi naman yata talaga kami pwedeng magsalita ng mga
harsh comments sa mga bata. Ayaw naman naming magsabi ng mga salitang didibdibin nila at maging
angst nila sa buhay, ha ha ha!
We’re here to let the kids have a great time. We don’t want them to feel pressured.”
Judy Ann had spent most of her life working in showbiz, starting out as a child star, until she got married to Ryan in 2009 and became pregnant with Lucho last year. From the time she got pregnant until now, the actress has taken a break from work to devote her time to her new family, particularly to Lucho who was born last October.
Many of her fans are very anxious to see her return to work, but Judy Ann said her comeback is still dependent on her discussion with ABS-CBN. “Sa ngayon itong Junior Master Chef lang muna ang gagawin ko. Mahaba rin kasi ang tatakbuhin nitong JMC.
We’ll see kung may iba pang darating na
projects. Kung may
offer naman na maganda, bakit hindi? Pero
for now ito lang muna kasi magaan lang
Judy Ann added that she is very much open to be doing another teleserye
. Her last was Habang May Buhay
opposite Derek Ramsay. She said she knows fans will always want to see her act on television, but she is still waiting for the right story concept, hence she can’t give a definite date as to when she’ll do a teleserye
again. “May mga tanong din sa akin
about teleserye. Pero hindi pa agad agad kasi naghahanap pa ng magandang
story, kung sino ‘yung makakasama. Siguro
next year. We’ll see na lang. Hindi pa ako makabigay ng
definite answer. Baka mamaya niyan magbigay ako ng sagot tapos hindi naman matutuloy. Kapag nandiyan na, magkwentuhan uli tayo, ha ha ha!
