Zanjoe Marudo is one of the six hosts who will be part of Banana Split’s new segment.
ABS-CBN’s gag show is celebrating its fifth anniversary starting this October. As part of the celebration, new segments will be introduced on the show.
Zanjoe explained that "Six Six" is one of the segments that will be aired on the program.
During the September 17 set visit at the ABS-CBN compound, Zanjoe explained the concept to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the media present at Studio 5.
"Sa Balitang Six Six, ibabalita namin ang mga sikat na pinu-post sa YouTube. Anim yung hosts at anim rin ang ipapakita namin," he said.
SEX VIDEOS. The topic then shifted to sex videos that came out recently, and Zanjoe was asked for his opinion regarding this matter.
The actor hesitated before answering, "Nakakalungkot para dun sa mga involved."
Does he think it is right for couples to shoot their intimate moments in bed?
Zanjoe said, "Depende ’yan kasi lahat ng tao iba-iba. Lahat ng tao may kanya-kanyang fantasy kaya hindi naman natin hawak yun na pagsabihan lahat.
"May kanya-kanyang kaligayahan ’yan."
Would he ever consider doing a sex video?
"Hindi ko kasi ma-imagine na ganun, e.
"Minsan nga, may mga scenes sa teleserye or sa movie, nako-conscious ako na panoorin ang sarili ko.
"Lalo na siguro pag pinapanood ko ang sarili ko na mas intimate ang mga eksena," Zanjoe pointed out.
Would he ever consider doing a sex video with his girlfriend, actress Bea Alonzo?
Zanjoe laughed before shaking his head and saying, "Kailangan mo naman talaga igalang ang babae."
He added: "Normal lang naman yun. Nagkataon lang na artista yung mga [kumakalat].
"Siguro may mga ordinaryong tao na gumagawa nun at para sa kanila, normal na lang yun. Kahit kumalat yun, hindi ganung kalaking issue.
"Pero kung yung sa artista ang nadadamay sa ganyan, malaking issue
Did he happen to watch the sex videos that came out recently?
"Hindi na ako umabot, e. Pag pine-play mo, ’sorry’ na yung nakalagay," he said.
ON BEA ALONZO. Zanjoe has been in a relationship with fellow ABS-CBN star Bea Alonzo for over two years already.
How do they keep their relationship a low-profile one even though they are both in the highly visible world of showbiz?
"Hindi naman namin sinadyang ganun," admitted Zanjoe.
"Siguro nagkataon lang na relax at cool lang ang personality namin parehas.
"Siguro kasi hindi kami pakialamera sa career ng bawat isa o sa gustong gawin ng bawat isa.
"Suportahan lang kami. Kung puwede, idadamay ko siya o siya idadamay niya ako sa gusto niya."
Does that mean that they have a high level of trust for each other?
"Oo naman!" exclaimed Zanjoe. "Umabot naman siguro kami sa point na alam mong hindi namin sasaktan ang isa’t isa."
When asked about their plans of settling down, Zanjoe said, "Wala pa... siyempre marami pang kailangang gawin at siyempre si Bea bata pa."
He then quipped: "Saka marami pa siyang kontrata."
FATHERHOOD. Aside from being part of Banana Split, Zanjoe is also cast as a father figure in the afternoon soap Annaliza, which stars Andrea Brillantes.
PEP asked Zanjoe his thoughts about fatherhood now that he is portraying this onscreen.
Did he become more nervous about being a father in the future?
"Siguro na-excite... at natakot. Nakakatuwa pag baby pa at habang lumalaki na, dun na nagkakaroon ng mga issues.
"Kasi ganun ang role ko. Noong baby pa si Annaliza [referring to Andrea], sobrang saya namin at habang lumalaki siya, dun na kami nagkakaroon ng problema."
Does he see himself raising kids with Bea in the future?
"Siyempre naman, hindi naman mawawala yun. Pero dadating at dadating naman kami dun.
"Ayoko naman malagpasan ang mga ganung klaseng pagkakataon na magkaroon ng pamilya at magkaroon ng anak.
"Na-realize ko na ang sarap-sarap rin na may inaalagaan ka at may minamahal ka na bata."
Does he think Bea would make a good mother someday?
Zanjoe said, "Oo naman, dahil napakabait niyang anak. Sigurado ako, magiging mabuti siyang magulang."
