Is Jericho Rosales ashamed of his past?


062111-echo_main.jpgJericho Rosales takes a break from acting in heavy drama teleseryes and tries his hand in hosting with the new reality series I Dare You. Jericho shared that this new show will allow him to show viewers the human side of himself. “Sa pelikula o teleserye nakikita ng mga tao na nagpo-portray ako ng character. Dito wala kayong ibang makikita kung hindi ako, kung sino talaga ako, kung ano ‘yung laman ng puso ko, ng isip ko, ‘yung mga reactions ko sa mga makikita namin. Makikita niyo ‘yung fighting spirit namin, ‘yung diskarte namin. Totoong tao kami dito.”

I Dare You will feature celebrities temporarily exchanging lives with ordinary Filipinos. This show is a joint project between two production teams within ABS-CBN, the entertainment TV group and the News and Current Affairs. Jericho said, “First time kong makatrabaho ang News and Current Affairs team ng ABS-CBN. Astig ‘yung pagka-raw nung trabaho namin ngayon. Medyo mabilis, punong-puno ng reality. Gusto ko kapag napanood ng mga tao itong I Dare You, ang masasabi lang nila, ‘Astig ‘yung show na ‘yun!’”

For the first episode of I Dare You, Jericho faced the challenge of going back to where he came from before all the showbiz success. The actor relived how it is to sell fish in the wet market. “Sa first episode namin makikita niyo ‘yung dati kong buhay. Hindi ko naman masasabing tinalikuran ko na ‘yun. Dito sa I Dare You, binalikan namin ‘yung hanap buhay ko nung hindi pa ako artista. Makikita niyo kung saan ako nagtinda ng isda sa Marikina. Makikita niyo kung paano ako dumiskarte sa buhay dati at kung ano ang naging kahulugan nun sa buhay ko hanggang ngayon.”

Jericho will be working with co-hosts Iya Villania and Melai Cantiveros on the show. According to Jericho, the three of them were perfectly chosen for this reality show. “I think napili talaga ‘yung tamang timpla ng mga hosts for this show. Ako mahilig sa adventure, sa realidad ng buhay, malapit ako sa mga tao. Si Iya ganun din, adventurous at may puso. At siyempre kailangan din namin ng muse na makulit, at ‘yun si Melai.”
