"I Do" Premieres On August 30ABS-CBN's reality series "I Do" will premiere on August 30. Hosted by Judy Ann Santos, it is set to change the lives of nine couples who will embark in a different journey.
The challenges they will face in the show will test the couples' relationships, and it will also make them discover new things about their partners.
They will be guided by Judy Ann and council members such as life coach Pia Acevedo and psychologist and marriage counselor Dr. Julian Montano.
The show will be co-hosted by Jason Gainza. He will join Judy Ann in giving out challenges to the couples.
Judy Ann has been married for five years. She has two kids with husband Ryan Agoncillo. She will be giving advice to the couples based on her experiences as a wife and as a mother.
Judy Ann said the most challenging part of her hosting stint in the show is giving advice to the couples. When she accepted the show, all she thought of was how exciting the original concept is.
Along the way, Judy Ann became a life coach. It also feels great to be a part of the couple's journey to getting married, she added.
The nine couples will live in three houses inside the "I Do" village. The women will live separately from the men. Judy Ann said the show made her realize that the relationship does not depend on how the long couple has been together.
It is important for Judy Ann that the viewers get inspiration from what they will learn from the couples. Each challenge and session will be based on real-life problems that couples face.
The council will have to eliminate one couple each week.
Coach Pia said that she likes it when the couples face their problems and ask for her help. She can see that it's not about winning the show anymore, but about finding solutions for their relationship problems.
Dr. Julian, on the other hand, was amazed by the production staff for the activities they were able to conceptualize. He started using these activities in his professional counseling.
The nine couples will comprise of the following: business partners, a Korean-Pinay affair, an engaged couple, high school sweethearts, a couple with a difficult past, a couple who have been together for three months, neighbors who turned couple, a May-December love affair and a pair with a child already.
The public will decide on who the winning couple is. They will bring home P1 million, house and lot, and their dream wedding.
