Ryan Agoncillo Hopes For The Best For "Talentadong Pinoy 2014"Ryan Agoncillo hosted TV5's "Talentadong Pinoy" for five years but because of a conflict on his schedule, he won't be able to host its comeback on television.
Instead, showbiz couple Robin Padilla and Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla will be hosting the show. Tuesday Vargas will also co-host it.
Ryan said he wished Robin and Mariel the best. For the past several days, the former staff of the show and the guest judges have been texting Ryan. They all said they are going to miss his presence there. What he replied is for them to enjoy the show the way they did before.
"Talentadong Pinoy" was their "baby," Ryan said.
Aside from a conflict in his schedule, Ryan also wanted to only work with the former staff and crew of the show. Their director, however, was not able to commit to the show because of scheduling problems.
Ryan is also part of GMA-7's "Ismol Family, so it was not possible for him to work for two shows.
He explained why it was important for him to work with for former staff and crew of "Talentadong Pinoy"--because they also worked together on "Philippine Idol." Their "family" has been together for almost 10 years, Ryan said.
TV5 also has to follow a certain timeline, so Ryan understands that they have to move on with the show already. "They have to put it out right away."
Aside from "Ismol Family," he is also doing "Eat Bulaga" every day. Ryan said it would be impossible for him to meet TV5's schedule with his other commitments. He wanted to have done "Talentadong Pinoy" later this year or early next year, but TV5 could not give them that schedule.
All of them decided not to do the show anymore. They just hoped they can work together again on TV5 even in another show.
The show had a "clean transition," Ryan said, that Robin's manager even called his manager to say that Robin is accepting the hosting stint already. Ryan said he appreciates all the efforts from Robin's camp to make the transition smooth.
"Now, I’m excited to watch it, see what it turns out to be."
Meanwhile, Ryan's opinion was asked regarding the apparent "feud" between Matteo Guidicelli and Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo. Ryan and his wife Judy Ann Santos are close friends of Matteo and Juday.
Matteo and Sarah reportedly had a rift when Sarah was unable to attend her boyfriend's triathlon event in Cebu City because her mother, Divine, did not allow her to.
Ryan laughed and said he doesn't know anything about it. In fact, he added there seemed to be no issue at all between the couple.
