Ryan Agoncillo is proud that Talentadong Pinoy topped primetime race


"Ang ganda ng vibe ng studio ngayon kasi parangevery time we see each other, mayroong reward, mayroong good news. Kasi kami saset we're very professional but then walang nagsisigawan sa set, cool na coollang. I can say it's very ideal," says Ryan Agoncillo about working for the TV5 talent show Talentadong Pinoy.


Nagpa-pizza si Ryan Agoncillo sataping ng Talentadong Pinoy last July 20 sa studio ng TV5 para sa success natinatamasa ngayon ng naturang talent show. Nakapangako kasi si Ryanhindi lang sa mga staff ng show kundi maging sa studio audience nito na kapagumabot o lumampas sa 25% ang rating ng TalentadongPinoy ay magpapakain siya ng pizza sa lahat.

Laking gulat ni Ryan Agoncillo nang lastJuly 11 ay maabot ng Talentadong Pinoy ang highest rating nitong 26.2 percent. Dahil dito, naglagay ang show sa number one position sa Saturday primetime base sa overnight survey na ginawa ng AGB Nielsen among Mega Manila households.

Tinalo nito ang weekend shows ng GMA-7 at ABS-CBN. Noong araw na ito, nakatamo ang Kapuso singing competition na Are You the Next Big Star ng rating na 18 percent samantalang ang Kapamilya show na The Singing Bee ay nakakuha naman ng 16.5 percent.


Tuwang-tuwa namang tinupad ni Ryan angpangako niyang pizza na pinalad ding matikman ng PEP (Philippine EntertainmentPortal) sa pagbisita nito sa taping ng Talentadong Pinoy.

"Nagpa-pizza ako. Prinamis ko patiyung audience e...We don't get to this point often. We're just really lucky toget this point. So, ano ba naman yung pasayahin mo man lang yung mga kasama mosa studio, di ba?" masayang balita ni Ryan nang ma-interview siya ng PEP bagoang taping ng show.

Ano ang feeling na naabot na ng Talentadong Pinoy ang number oneposition?

"Ang sarap, ang sarap. Kasi yunggrupo namin Philippine Idol pa, e.Small lang yung expectations namin. We wanted to break double digits, which wedid in Philippine Idol once. And thenwhen we did with Talentadong Pinoy.It is a very humble expectation, double digits lang.


"When we first cut into double digits, okay, pero walang advertisers pa. Tapospataas nang pataas hanggang sa yung slots nabili na. Tapos from there... so,may advertisers na, steadily nagpi-15, 16. Hindi naman namin akalain na mastataas pa. Of course, happy. Ang ganda ng vibe ng studio ngayon kasi parangevery time we see each other, mayroong reward, mayroong good news. Kasi kami saset we're very professional but then walang nagsisigawan sa set, cool na coollang. I can say it's very ideal. Hindi naman kasi lahat ng set nabibigyan ngganung pagkakataon na masaya ang set and doing well sa ratings, di ba?"

ADVANTAGE OVER COMPETITORS. Ano satingin niya ang strength ng Talentadong Pinoy at tinatangkilik ito ng mgamanonood?

"Alam mo yung ano... lahat tayo maytalent, di ba? Kahit nag-iinuman, mayroon kang barkada who will try to do atrick or two, and that usually last a minute and a half, di ba? Halimbawa, weare in a family gathering, remember when we were kids papatayuin tayo salamesa, pasasayawin tayo, pakakantahin. I think, we just want to be entertainedin whatever way possible. And that's what TalentadongPinoy shows: the talent of entertaining the Filipino in whatever way. Kungisa-shock ka or it's a genuine talent like playing an instrument, or singing ordancing or doing acrobatics.

"Like our recent Hall ofFamer, si Yoyo Tricker, para yan yung mga batang, halika dito iho, performfor tito and tita. And I guess, it extends through media. Kasi ano ba namanyung pinaka-powerful nating... I mean apart from the government, ano ba yungpinaka-powerful entity sa Pilipinas, it's really entertainment. And that's whatTalentadong Pinoy presents. It's pureentertainment for at least one minute and a half per Talentado and then you getjudged. Plus of course, yung pera involved. Yung mga Talentado natin,halimbawa, hindi naman talaga nila inaasam na mag-Hall of Fame. Ang gusto langnila, I have a unique talent, if I can make 50 thousand pesos out of it, andthen I would do it.

"Kasi na-notice ko yan, pati yungmga mekaniko ko sa kotse, magpapagasolina lang ako, lalapit tapos, ‘Sir, pwedebang mag-Talentadong Pinoy?' Tapostatawagin yung kasama, ‘Halika dito ipakita mo yung talent mo.' And really, itranges from one to two minutes yung talent na ipinapakita nila. So, mahiligmagpasikat ang mga Pilipino, di ba? Mahilig magpakitang-gilas ang mga Pinoy.Yun ang nagagawa nila sa Talentadong Pinoy," mahabang paliwanag ni Ryan.


BEST LESSON LEARNED. Ano ang bestlesson so far, na natutunan niya sa TalentadongPinoy?

"Ako, sa akin sa solo ko, angnatutunan ko yung sensitivity sa tao. Because in Talentadong Pinoy, we don't encourage using yung halimbawa mayroontayong contestant na may kapansanan or unlucky in career or money. While wedon't encourage na gamitin yung kapansanan or kahirapan to get the sympathy ofthe judges, you have to be sensistive also to their situation.

"Kasi like we have this kid na bulag, you don't have to be sad for him kasihindi siya malungkot sa sarili niya, e. So, you have to judge on how you talk.Maybe chat with him before the show. And then after niyang mag-perform,mapapakiramdaman mo kung ito bang batang ito naaawa sa sarili niya. Kailanganko bang kampihan ito habang inaatake siya ng judges? Or you just let it behabang naiintindihan niya, habang yung mga judges kinukutya or pini-praise yungperformance niya. You have to put it objectively.


"Doing that eight times (for eight contestants) per show sharpens yungsensitivity mo. Kasi wala namang sasalo and I don't have a long termrelationship with them, unlike sa PhilippineIdol na week in, week out kasama ko sila, so may pondo kang relationship.Ito nakikita ko lang sila pagsampa nila sa stage. So, medyo kailangan sharpyung pakiramdam mo.


"Halimbawa, yung champion tinalo yung grupo tapos nalugmok, nalungkot.Kailangan balensado ka. You have to remind them na hindi laging talagang talokasi the mere fact na umakyat ka sa stage may limang libo ka na e. So, youpassed the auditions, may limang libo ka na. Basta tumapak ka sa stage, whetherna-buzz ka three times ng talent scouts at napagsarhan ng kurtina o hindi, youget five thousand pesos. Walang luhaan. Tapos nanalo ka for the day, you getten thousand. So, even if you don't beat the champion, you're still tenthousand richer," salaysay pa ni Ryan.

ORIGINAL CONCEPT. Malakingfactor din daw na hindi franchise show ang TalentadongPinoy.

"Yes, we are not a franchise. Origito ng TV5. But in as far as the pioneering aspect is concerned, what we concernedourselves with is yung merit ng show kung ano ang meron. Huwag po tayongmag-imagine na mas malaki tayo sa ibang show. Kailangan genuine yung talent.Kailangan yung kukunin naming talent scouts kailangan respetado. Kailangan maysay talaga. These are the aspects of the show that we tried to fix, we tried tomake pulido."

Hindi nga franchise ang Talentadong Pinoy,pero ano ang comment niya sa mga nagsasabing ginaya lang daw ito sa ibangtalent show sa abroad gaya ng America'sGot Talent at Britain's Got Talent?

"Like what I said, wala namangoriginal na talent show. If you'll look for original talent shows, we'retalking about Shakesperean times pa siguro. But ang amin kasi, what we alwaysthink about sa set, we would ano... kasi hindi kami franchise kaya we don'thave a bible to copy. We don't have guidelines set for us.

"The director si Direk Rich [Ilustre],the writer si Paolo [Bustamante], my self and the rest of the people on thefloor, naaalala ko the first few months that we were taping, nag-a-adjust pakami and we keep on saying, we wouldn't be able to pull off a smooth Talentadong Pinoy, kung hindi naminpinagdaanan yung Philippine Idol.

"Kasi a franchise teached us how tomaximize yung mga anggulo, kung ano yung dapat sabihin, kung ano yung dapattipirin. So, yun ang knowledge gained from our Philippine Idol experience that we bring in to Talentadong Pinoy. So, it's that kind of level. Hindi yung bastamakapasa lang. Kami, we imbibed the standards of a franchise. So, yun angnakakatuwa and sanay na sanay kami. Kasi yung pressure sa Philippine Idol, grabe yung resources put into it. So, we took thebest that we can learn from that experience. Yun ang ina-apply namin dito."

May time ba sa pagho-host niya sa Talentadong Pinoy na naawa siya sa contestant?

"Yes, there was once or twice koyatang nasabi na, ‘Hindi ka dapat nasarhan ng kurtina. Pakiramdam ko lang,because of the audience response din, hindi ka dapat nasarhan ng kurtina.' Butthen, it only goes as far as that."

May time rin ba na na-feel niya nadapat yung iba ang nanalo kaysa dun sa winner talaga?

"Meron, kasi iba-iba naman tayo nggusto, e. But then, that's when you have to respect your talent scouts. That'swhy we get only those who are capable of judging them. And then yun namangjury, careful din yung process ng pamimili kasi they should reflect din thetaste of the viewers. I think isa rin yun sa magandang ano... that maybe isalso one of the secrets, yung jury namin hindi kami nakikialam talaga. Thereare times hindi kami agree sa pinanalo nila, pero wala e, ginawa namin silangjury, sila yung sa tingin namin ay market core ng TV5, e yun angdesisyon nila, so we give in. That may also be the reason kung bakit patok saratings."

Ano ang plano nila to maintain yung mataas na ratings?

"I don't know. But as of now hindipa nauubusan ng ideas sina Direk, and the staff, it really looks good for us.And sa dami ng mga Pilipinong may talent, hindi talaga kami mauubusan."
