She continued, “Hindi naman kailangang mayroon kang i-reveal or mayroon kang pasabog.
“Ang importante ‘yong aming show, kada episode, may nangyayari, na kaabang-abang talaga sa mga taong manonood.
“I’m sure, lahat ng mga manonood sa amin ngayong second season aabangan nila kasi mas maganda talaga ngayon kaysa first season.
“Actually, nagpapasalamat nga kami na ang aming first season ay nag-rate, naging successful. Itong second, mas pa I’m sure.
“Mahirap lang i-reveal lahat pero kaabang-abang din.”

“So, lahat ng kung sino si Annabelle Rama, mapapanood nila sa aming reality show,” she smiled.”
Meanwhile, NBC Universal Vice-President for Channels in Asia Pacific, Scott Mackenzie, believes the show became popular because of the relationships between the members of the Gutierrez family.
“It’s human drama, it’s family drama,” Scott said.
“Looking at the relationship between the people here, I think that’s the secret to the success of the show, not only in the Philippines but also in the other market even if they don’t know them.
“It’s that human relationship, that family storyline, that’s what’s relatable and that’s why it works.”
The second season of Gutz will be directed by Australian director, Karen Appathurai Wiggins, who is known for her amazing work in various international franchises of reality TV shows.
