Dennis Trillo assures skeptics he's well-prepared to host Starstruck V

Actor Dennis Trillo speaks about his feelings on being chosen as a host for the upcoming reality TV artist search Starstruck V. He also expresses his reaction to naysayers who question his hosting skills, among other things.


Actor Dennis Trillo faced a crossfire of intrigues as he took the hot seat in Showbiz Central yesterday, November 15. As one of the new hosts for Starstruck season V after a series of primetime shows, he has become the target of skeptics questioning his ability to host the upcoming celebrity search.

Dennis has experienced being under the crossfire in SC but this time it was different. The first question hurled at him was about his reaction when he first saw Darna co-star Marian Rivera in full costume. What did he feel when he saw her?

"Noon first day ko mag-taping may eksena kami ni Darna," Dennis related, "and first time ko siya makita in costume, e. Talagang stunning dahil sobrang flawless at sobrang sexy niya and medyo matagal nang panahon na nakakita ako ng Darna pero si Marian talaga ang pinaka-ultimate Darna sa lahat ng naging Darna. Siya ang the best! Iyan lang masasabi ko."

The fifth installment of Starstruck is about to go full swing and Dennis is all steamed up to handle his first reality-TV hosting stint.

"Sobrang excited ako, siyempre," exclaimed Dennis. "Para mapasali sa isang grupo after nangyari sa Pilipinas na mga sakuna, e masarap mapasali sa grupo na nagbibigay ng panibagong hope sa aspiring young talents."

This being his first time to host Starstruck, does he feel in any way pressured or nervous?

"Nagkaroon na ako ng hosting jobs dati sa SOP," explained Dennis. "Pero co-host lang. Iyong sa Starstruck kasi, ito na talaga iyong all-out na main host talaga. Pressure, oo, sobra, lalo na iyong papalitan ko sobrang bihasa na sa field ng pagho-host na si Dingdong. Siyempre, ayoko mapahiya sa kanya, so lahat ginagawa ko para at least mapantayan ko ang energy or level na binibigay niya sa Starstruck."

Dennis then revealed his process in preparing for this new responsibility, from practicing to watching video clips of Dingdong hosting the show. "Pinapanood ko iyon so para makakuha ako ng pointers para makatulong sa akin, para hindi ako mangapangapa 'pag sinalang na ako."

Joining Dennis in his hosting stint is fellow Kapuso actress Carla Abellana. With his experience working with Carla, Marian Rivera, and Heart Evangelista [in Mano Po 6], would he consider wooing one of them if he had the chance?

"Ang hirap ng tanong," laughed Dennis. "Si Marian mayroon na siyang Dingdong. Si Carla mayroon na siyang Geoff. So siguro si Heart."

In regards to working with Heart in the movie Mano Po 6, Dennis had nothing but good words for her.

"Grabe, sobrang saya," sighed Dennis. "Siyempre, ito ang first time na magkatrabaho kami sa isang pelikula and isang full time na pelikula. Sobrang excited ako at proud na nakatrabaho siya. Honored ako na makatrabaho siya dahil magaling siya."

Speaking of Heart, rumor has it that Dennis gave her a heart-printed shirt from Japan. Does this mean the start of his courtship?

"Siyempre, shirt na may puso, so para sa kanya 'yan," Dennis laughed. "Naisip ko na bagay sa kanya, so iyon na lang pasalubong ko sa kanya."

PROVING THE NAYSAYERS WRONG. Skeptics are questioning Dennis's right to host the big reality show Starstruck. What is Dennis reaction?

"Ako siyempe, unang-una, e hindi mo maaalis ang mga pupuna sa iyo," said Dennis. "Siyempre, baguhan ako sa pagho-host pero gusto ko itong gawin challenge, and mga doubts nila. And itong Starstruck, hindi ko naman hiningi sa network. So, siguro kaya binigay nila sa akin, e kahit papaano siguro alam nila na kaya ko. And kaya ko naman na maging magaling na host someday kung bibigyan nila ako ng chance."
