"Windang 'yung word."
These were the words of Bianca Gonzalez when she described her reaction when she became the main host of Pinoy Big Brother.
In an interview in Magandang Buhay, Bianca admitted that she is still processing what happened.
"Kasi nangyari siya in a way na hindi ini-expect ng lahat. Grateful, of course, na parte pa rin ako ng pamilyang ito, kasama ko siyempre sina momshie Mels (Melai Cantiveros), si Kim (Chiu), si Robi (Domingo), si Enchong (Dee). Pero kasi may pagkakumplikado ang nangyari, mga taong involved. To be perfectly honest, hanggang ngayon ay pinoproseso ko pa. Hindi pa siya totally nagsi-sink in pero every day we show up for work, we do our best at work," she stated.
Bianca remarked that she never thought that there would come a time that she would become the main host of the reality program.
"Never. Parang happy ako sa kung ano ang posisyon ko to support. Parang in my head feeling ko magkasama kami sa 'PBB' until hindi na kami kailangan ng 'PBB' or matapos na ang 'PBB.' In my head ganun siya and happy ako doon sa posisyon na 'yon. Pero ayon nga, the world turned upside down," she said.
It can be recalled that last February, Toni Gonzaga stepped down as the host of PBB after being embroiled in a controversy after she hosted the proclamation rally of a presidential candidate.
Toni made the announcement in an Instagram post.
"It has been my greatest honor to host PBB for 16 years. From witnessing all my co-hosts transition from housemates to ‘PBB’ hosts are just some of the best moments in my life sa Bahay ni Kuya," she wrote.
She continued, "Today, I’m stepping down as your main host. I know Bianca and the rest of the hosts will continue the ‘PBB’ legacy. It has been my privilege to greet you all with ‘Hello Philippines’ and ‘Hello World’ for the last 16 years. I will forever cherish the memories, big nights, and moments in my heart. Thank you Kuya for everything. This is your angel, now signing off.”
