Robi jumped for joy when MYX Channel head André AllanAlvarez announced his name as one of the four new video jocks of the saidmusic channel last night, October 21, at the Activity Center of TriNoma Mall inQuezon City.

"Hosting kasi is what I want. 'Yon talaga ang sinabi ko,‘This is what I want,'" said Robi in an interview after the announcement ofwinners.

PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Robi if hosting was really his plan when he joined PBB.

"Sinabi ko naman na parang gusto kong mag-ASAP din, parang mahirap-hirappa 'yon. MYX is something... 'Yon, mylove for music, my passion for hosting, intertwined," he replied.

Alam mo'yon, kasi that's what you want talaga. Kasi, hosting has been my passion ever since."

Won't there be any conflict with the commitments he made after PBB?

According to Mr. Alvarez, "Robi, obviously, is a perfect fit forour market na 13 to 19 years old,screaming girls like this [pointing to the fans waiting for Robi]. I'm sure it helped. When you bring him to theevents na hindi naman necessarily you would think na Channel 2 viewers ang mgananonood, people still responded to him very well. I think that was the very, very big thing na, you know, he didn'thave to work hard for that anymore."

Since Robi has joined two reality shows and has beensuccessful in both, will he join other contests?

"Well, to be frank with you guys, MYX is one ofthe last reality shows that I'll be partaking in," Robi said.
