Melai Cantiveros admits feeling nervous about hosting 'I Dare You'


062511-melai-main.jpgAside from co-hosting the noontime show Happy Yipee Yehey six days a week, Melai Cantiveros will soon co-host another program, the reality show I Dare You. Melai described her new project as going back to her roots since she got her big break in showbiz because of a reality show, Pinoy Big Brother Double where she emerged as the grand winner.

Melai said that in I Dare You, she will be in charge of the comic element. “Dito ako ‘yung host na may pagkabaliw. Pangloko-loko lang ako, hindi naman ‘yung sobrang serious. Pero nagbibigay din ako ng mensahe sa mga challengers. Pinapasaya ko ang mga challengers pati na rin ang mga viewers.”

Melai even joked when asked how I Dare You is different from other reality shows. “May pinanggagalingan talaga ang pagho-host namin dito. Meron talagang puso at diwa. Sa iba kasi wala e, char! He he he!

I Dare You is a joint project between two departments within ABS-CBN, namely the Entertainment TV Production and News and Current Affairs. Here, celebrities will be given the challenge to take on the lives of ordinary Filipinos, and should they succeed, the chosen subject will win a prize

Though she has gotten used to working as a host, Melai admitted that at first she felt inferior about having to stand beside Jericho Rosales and Iya Villania who will also host I Dare You.Aaminin ko sa una nahiya ako siyempre kasi si Jericho ‘yan. Eeeeee! Ha ha ha! Si Iya naman VJ ‘yan, sobrang Englisher (sic) ‘yan,” explained Melai.

But after a couple of weeks of taping I Dare You, Melai has learned to enjoy the company of Jericho and Iya. “Sobrang enjoy sila katrabaho. Nung tumagal talaga gumanda ‘yung samahan namin. On the go na ‘yung feelings ko. Ha ha ha! Hindi na ako nahihiya sa kanila. Kami ni Iya parang magka-level na lang ang ganda namin. Ha ha ha!
