Iya Villania is thrilled to co-host 'I Dare You'


062611-iya_main.jpgTV host/actress Iya Villania is very excited that her upcoming project I Dare You will combine two of her loves: hosting and drama. Iya described I Dare You as very different from the usual reality shows that viewers have seen on TV. “Feeling ko ang kakaiba sa I Dare You, unlike sa mga teleserye na napapanood natin sa ABS-CBN na lahat scripted, dito sa amin totoong drama kasi totoong buhay ito. I Dare You will challenge people to live the lives of others, try what normal people had to do just to survive.”

I Dare You is the first collaboration between two productions teams within ABS-CBN, namely the entertainment unit and the News and Current Affairs group. “‘Yung malaking reality element ng I Dare You dun papasok ang News and Current Affairs. Meaning hindi ito scripted. Case study siya so everything about this is real,” said Iya who is currently seen as host of Umagang Kay Ganda and as a VJ on MYX Music Channel.

I Dare You will feature celebrities as they try to take over the everyday lives of normal people. When the challenge is successfully accomplished, the chosen guest will win a prize while the celebrity will take home something more meaningful. Iya shared, “Ang premyo talaga dito pinaghihirapan ng mga celebrities for themselves, but para sa isang bidang Kapamilya. ‘Yung mga subject ang makakatanggap ng premyo, ang matatanggap ng mga challengers is the experience. Sa tingin ko kapag nagawa mo na ‘yung challenge sa I Dare You, magiiba na ‘yung tingin mo sa buhay. ‘Yun ang mas mahalagang premyo.”

Aside from Iya, I Dare You will also be hosted by Jericho Rosales and Melai Cantiveros. Iya talked about what will be the distinct contribution of the wacky Melai in the program. “Mahirap kasi talaga ‘yung mga challenges kaya nandiyan si Melai para magbigay ng konting comedy para gumaan naman ng konti ‘yung feeling ng mga challengers, para hindi sila agad bumigay.”
