FIRST READ ON PEP: Robin Padilla believes Pilipinas Win Na Win! is made for him

Robin said he feels honored to work with Kris Aquino. "Siyempre isa 'yon sa mga pinaghahandaan naming lahat. Kasi alam naman nating lahat ng Pilipino na isa siya sa mga ginagalang sa larangan ng [hosting]. Isa siya dun," he said.


Robin Padilla admits he’s mostly nervous for his new noontime show Pilipinas Win Na Win!. While he’s happy that he has another chance to connect with his fans around the world, the charming action star says he still needs a lot of support to make it through Saturday, July 31, when the new show will be launched.

“Ang aking nararamdaman sa mga oras na ito ay umaasa sa mga dasal, umaasa sa mga paliwanag ng panaginip, dahil ako’y punong-puno ng kaba. Hindi naman negatibong kaba, kundi gusto ko lang makapagbigay ng kasiyahan sa mga tao. Gusto kong maging tama kung ano yung gusto naming ibigay, hindi sa negatibong paraan,” says Robin, who spoke to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press this afternoon, July 29, on the set of Wowowee.

Pilipinas Win Na Win! is ABS-CBN’s replacement for Wowowee, the controversial noontime show formerly hosted by the equally controversial Willie Revillame. When Willie was on temporary leave from the show last May, Robin Padilla was tapped as one of the guest hosts.

Robin’s two-week hosting stint was well-received by Filipino viewers, and many expressed the hope that he become the host for good. However, he refused to accept the offer.

But this time, Robin is back to hosting on the timeslot Wowowee will leave behind. He will be co-hosting with Kris Aquino, together with Wowowee co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez, Pokwang, and Valerie Concepcion.

A SHOW MADE FOR HIM. Robin said he feels the show was “made” for him, and that he is not disrespecting Willie in any way.

“Unang araw pa lang ng Wowowee ay ako ay nagbigay-pugay na kay Willie, hindi naman ako bisita ngayon. Sa aking paniwala ay ito ay pinagkaloob sa akin ng Panginoong Diyos. Wala naman akong sinasagasaan na kahit sino. Sa katotohanan, e, minsan kong hiningi ‘to at tinanggihan, dahil sa paniniwalang hindi para sa akin. E, bumalik, ibig sabihin ay para sa akin,” he said.

Robin added, “Kaya kung meron akong dapat pasalamatan at hingan ng opinyon, e, Panginoong Diyos ‘yon. Hindi tao. Kung nagkita kami siguro ng aksidente, e, bakit hindi? Ang pagpupugay ko sa kanya, e, nagpapatuloy. Kung magpapaalam, e, ito na lang: maraming salamat, kapatid.”

Asked how Pilipinas Win Na Win! will be different from Wowowee, Robin proudly said it would focus on the Filipino masses, whom he tagged as “heroes.”

“Lalo po nating gagawing bida ang mga tao,” he said. “Sila ang bida dito, kami ay tagapangasiwa lang ng programa. Mananatili at magiging bida unang-una siyempre ang mga kababayan natin.”

Robin said Pilipinas Win Na Win! should have a fresh start.

“May sariling kasaysayan na ang Wowowee, he said. “ Hindi ko na po siguro maaaring ikapit kung ano yung mga natutunan ko sa Wowowee, sapagkat ako po ay bisita lamang sa programang iyon. At gusto ko pong linawin na kailanaman ay hindi po natin napag-interesan na ito po ay agawin. Kung ano man po iyong natutunan ko roon ay iyon ay parte ng panibagong pakikibaka.”
