Will Kris Aquino's travel special do well in the TV ratings game? Rhodora Morales, the producer of Trip Ni Kris, believes, "Of course, mayroon bang makaka-beat kay Ms. Kris? Sa tingin ko, wala ha. Wala pa sa ngayon."



Kris Aquino's credibility is what convinced businesswoman Rhodora Pascual Morales to produce her TV special Trip ni Kris.

This travel show will air on GMA-7 on Palm Sunday, April 9.

In a recent interview with entertainment reporters, Morales pointed out how convincing Kris was when she was still doing the ABS-CBN morning show Kris TV.

The producer recalled, “Mayroon siyang show sa umaga noon, di ba? Kapag may appointment or meeting nga ako sa umaga, male-late ako dahil sa show niya.

“Kapag may in-endorse na isang bagay, nagpupunta ako dun.”

Then, she stressed, “Talaga naman kasing credible si Kris, e. Credible talaga siya.

“Hindi mo siya mapipilit ng isang bagay, na kapag nag-request ka kunwari, 'Kris, can you do this, please?' 'Ay, tita, hindi ko talaga ginagawa 'yan. Ano ko 'yan sa sarili ko, kapag hindi ko talaga puwedeng gawin.'

“Hindi siya plastik, e. Ako rin naman ganun din, kaya nagkakasundo kami.”

For this reason, she offered to back a travel show to be hosted by Kris featuring her hometown in Nueva Ecija.

“Siyempre, pangarap ng lahat 'yan, magkaroon ka ng show with the Queen of All Media,” said Morales.

The producer said she wanted to showcase the province in Central Luzon, which is a bit underrated when it comes to tourism.

She told reporters, “Well, dahil doon ako pinanganak sa Nueva Ecija, doon ako lumaki, ang dami-raming magandang lugar doon.

“Of course, humingi ako ng tulong sa provincial head ng tourism namin.

“Namili na lang kami kasi hindi matatapos.

“Sobrang dami pa lang lugar doon na hindi ko pa napupuntahan. I'm sure my daughter would love to go there kasi gusto niya ng adventure.

“If you watch it, baka magkagulo tayo, mag-unahan, kasi maganda talaga siya. I, for one, hindi ko alam 'yon.”

Of course, the travelogue format of the show was Kris's idea.

Morales recalled, “Actually, noong nagbidahan kami, wala kaming alam kung ano ang gagawin namin.

“Hanggang napagkuwentuhan lang na ano, 'Tita, gusto ko yung mala-Anthony Bourdain.'

“Sabi ko, siyempre, taga-bukid lang naman ako, ano ba 'yang Anthony Bourdain na 'yan.

“Kahit na ang nakikita ko lahat ng palabas, e, lutuan, biyahe. Sabi ko, 'Sige, pag-usapan natin.'

“Pero with twist, pang-Pilipino talaga ito. At saka, unang-una, yung turismo ng bansa natin at ng Nueva Ecija, yun ang gusto nating tulungan.”

World-renowned chef Anthony Bourdain is the host of Parts Unknown, an American travel and food show.


Earlier this March, Kris revealed that her TV comeback will be on March 26. However, after a few days, she announced via her Instagram account that the airing of Trip ni Kris was moved to April 9.

What happened? Kris Aquino figured in a minor accident while taping for the show.

Morales explained to reporters, “Talagang March 26. Kaya lang ang daming nangyari kay Kris, accident prone yung ale.

“So, worried ako na baka mamaya... Hindi mo naman alam kung ano 'yong healing period.

“Nakakaawa naman na hindi na makalakad kasi nga namaga kaya tumawag na kami ng doktor agad-agad. Talagang she's crying.

“Hindi mo naman maipakita 'yon. Sumisigaw nga siya sa sakit, e.

“Talagang we really let her rest for a while.

“Kaya ganun ang nangyari, nag-move na lang kami ng kusa.”

Asked if there will be following episodes of Trip ni Kris, Morales answered, “I wish. Let us see. Tulungan n'yo kami rito. Walang imposible basta pinagtutulung-tulungan.”

She is confident, however, that the April 9 episode will perform well in the TV ratings game.

“Of course, mayroon bang makaka-beat kay Ms. Kris? Sa tingin ko, wala ha. Wala pa sa ngayon,” she concluded.

#TripNiKris will be shown on Palm Sunday, April 9, after Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho on GMA Network.
