The hosts of Pinoy Big Brother have made known to their fans what the Kapamilya Way truly means as a new era for the show officially began.
On Saturday, February 12, Bianca Gonzalez was officially introduced as the main host of the show — with Kim Chiu joining the roster of talented hosts which includes Robi Domingo, Enchong Dee, and Melai Cantiveros, among others.
Toni Gonzaga recently left her role as the main host of the show after 16 years.
The entrance of the hosts particularly set the online world abuzz as several netizens noted how the camera emphasized the core values of ABS-CBN before panning towards the hosts of the show.
These values are meritocracy, excellence, teamwork, teaching and learning, honesty, integrity and respect, and service orientation.
Hosts including Enchong and Kim penned lengthy messages on social media, sharing how the values of the Kapamilya Way “bring out the best in all of us.”
“The Kapamilya Way brings out the best in all of us. Last night was a testament that no matter what we go through, we will #Thrive because we have each other,” Enchong wrote.
“I’ve always considered myself as an actor who loves to host and perform. Buti nalang kasama ko kayo @iamsuperbianca @iamrobidomingo @chinitaprincess @mrandmrsfrancisco Saludo ako sa puso at professionalism ninyo… kahit grabe ang kaba natin kagabi napagtagumpayan natin ang hamon.” he added.
“Sa lahat ng kasamahan namin sa likod ng kamera, mga staff at crew na grabe ang sakripisyo para sa @pbbabscbntv kasama niyo kami sa paglalakbay. At sa mga supporters ni Kuya… Maraming Salamat,” he continued.
His partner host for the night, Melai Cantiveros, praised him for showcasing his skills as a host.
“Salamat din partner. Ang galing mu,” Melai remarked.
Kim Chiu, on the other hand, said they successfully ended the night with a bang because they did it “the Kapamilya Way.”
“Last night was memorable! Thank you Lord God for guiding us. Maraming salamat sa lahat ng sumusupporta at patuloy na sumusuporta sa kwento ng totoong buhay @pbbabscbntv. We all did it THE KAPAMILYA WAY!” she said.
She also went on to thank not just the show and the people behind it, but also her co-hosts.
Kim also had the opportunity to talk to the housemates as a host for the first time.
“I will be forever grateful to this house, to the team behind PBB, to my co-hosts salamat sa pag guide kagabi ate @iamsuperbianca @iamrobidomingo sa mga advice and miga @mrandmrsfrancisco @mr_enchongdee sa pag practice nyo sa akin ng talk to housemates!!! Grabe surreal experience yun,” she said.
On Twitter, Kim posted, “Loyalty and love. Habang buhay na pasasamat sa BAHAY Ni KUYA! Anything for you KUYA!!!!!”
