Eat Bulaga host Paolo Contis talked about his motivation since he started hosting the longest-running noontime show.
In an interview with Ogie Diaz, Paolo was thankful to TAPE Inc. for giving him the opportunity to become one of the hosts of Eat Bulaga.
However, according to him, he also thought of the new criticisms he would receive after accepting the role.
However, he still accepted the offer because only a few had been given a chance to host Eat Bulaga.
Paolo also said that despite being new hosts, they still needed to be part of Eat Bulaga’s continuation by recognizing that they’re already 44 years. But it doesn’t mean he’s already claiming the legacy left by the original hosts.
He also accepted the comments made by the people, especially by Vic Sotto, who said that the new hosts of Eat Bulaga might get better after 44 years.
“Hindi naman namin ma-perfect ‘yun agad. Sabi nga ni Bossing, baka after 44 years gumaling na rin kami, and hopefully mabigyan kami ng ganong pagkakataon. Baka that time magaling na nga talaga kami,” he said.
He insisted that people should not call them ‘Fake’ Eat Bulaga hosts but ‘new’ Dabarkads.
The controversial actor also said that he really wanted to be like ‘TVJ’ someday.
“Lagi kong sinasabi sa sarili ko, I want this to work,” said Paolo. “Etong ginagawa namin ngayon, kasi sa totoo lang pangarap ko ‘to, eh.”
“Pangarap kong maging host. Pangarap kong maging TVJ and I got this opportunity,” he added.
