Isa nang Kapatid si Derek Ramsay!
Three-year exclusive contract ang pinirmahan ni Derek sa TV5.
Ginanap ang contract signing sa Edsa Shangri-La Hotel ngayong gabi, April 10.

Ang unang magiging programa ni Derek bilang isang Kapatid ay ang reality show na The Amazing Race Philippines.
THE DECISION. During the contract signing ay nakapanayam ng media si Derek at sinagot niya ang mga katanungan kaugnay ng kanyang desisyong lisanin ang ABS-CBN at lumipat sa TV5.
Ayon kay Derek ay matagal bago siya tuluyang magdesisyon na lumipat na ng istasyon.
“It took a long time… half a year, actually,” sambit niya.
Ano ang naging turning point sa naging desisyon niya?
“A weighing scale of which decision to make.
“You know, I think I proved my loyalty to ABS two years ago when I was being offered to transfer but I signed a contract for two years.
“For me, siguro, change is always good and I think I’m at that point in my career when it’s time to change.
“I think it’s that point in my career when I like the project na ginawa ko.
“Pero iba ‘pag papasok ka sa trabaho, ‘tapos there’s something talaga that feels your passion, your interest.
“And TV5 was giving me projects or offers that’s close to the passion that I have.
“So, I’m really excited to do that [and] that’s what pushed me to make that decision." paliwanag ng hunky actor.
