Judy Ann Santos admits feeling very nervous about her first hosting job.
Judy Ann Santos is gearing up for her television comeback as host of ABS-CBN’s Junior Master Chef: Pinoy Edition
. When asked about her preparation for her much anticipated return, she joked, “Ang unang unang
preparation ko ay ang pagpapapayat, ha ha ha!
But the thing that Judy Ann finds most challenging about JMC is that for the first time in her twenty years of being in the business, she will act as a host. The dramatic star admitted that she considers hosting a foreign territory. “Merong kaba kasi ngayon lang talaga ako magho-
reality show pa na puro bata. Dapat maging
very careful sa mga sasabihin at sa mga galaw
Judy Ann revealed that she is watching the Australian version of JMC so she can learn a few tips on how she will host once the Pinoy edition begins. “Pinapanood ko ‘yung
Australian version. Wala kasi talaga akong alam sa

For sure wala na kaming ibang
choice kung hindi magusap habang naghihintay sa

Judy Ann admitted that she has now become very picky about the projects that she will do both on TV and on the big screen. The reason she agreed to host JMC is that she believes the program will impart teaching and inspiration to many Filipino children and even to their parents and other grownups. “Sana kapag napanood niyo itong
JMC ay ma-
inspire ang lahat na magluto. Kasi kung kaya ng mga bata, bakit naman hindi kakayanin ng mga matatanda? Sana maturuan din nito ‘yung mga bata na gumawa ng ibang masayang bagay
aside from playing computer or watching TV. Magandang
lesson ang pagluluto kasi madadala nila itong hanggang pagtanda nila.”
