Robin Padilla defends ‘Kanto Boys’

MANILA, Philippines – Action star Robin Padilla defended Luis Manzano, John Lloyd Cruz and Billy Crawford, collectively known as “Kanto Boys,” from criticisms that surfaced after they replaced the action star on “Wowowee.”

Critics said Padilla was a better host compared to Manzano, Cruz and Crawford.

Padilla said he should not be compared to the three young guest hosts, noting that they have different styles of hosting.

“Ako ay matanda, ang mga ‘Kanto Boys‘ ay mga bata. Talagang magkaiba po ‘yon. Kaya kung ikukumpara nila ang ‘Kanto Boys’ sa akin ay huwag po sana dahil magkaiba po talaga kami ng style,” Padilla said.

Padilla, who was also criticized while hosting “Wowowee,” appealed to all televiewers to accept “Kanto Boys” the way they accepted him when he was the guest host of the hit afternoon program.

The action star hosted “Wowowee” for 2 weeks only. In his previous interview, Padilla said he was open to hosting “Wowowee” permanently.

Padilla, who is now preparing for his 2 films, admitted that he already missed the show, particularly its female hosts.

“Ayoko lang po kasi na masabi ng tao na ako po ay nang-agaw. Gusto ko lang po talaga ay isang malinaw na usapan,” Padilla said.

Mariel-Zanjoe break-up

A now single Padilla also distanced himself from Mariel Rodriguez and Zanjoe Marudo’s break up.

Padilla, who is being romantically linked to Rodriguez, said he is in no position to comment on the issue. He also hoped that Rodriguez and Marudo would be able to iron things out.

Padilla has repeatedly denied that he is courting Rodriguez. “’Yon po ay sa apat na sulok lang po ng ‘Wowowee.’” -Report by Reyma Buan-Deveza, abs-cbnNEWS.com

    ABS-CBN Management, PLEASE have pity on your viewers.
    Palitan ang mga Kanto Boys. Too Boring. Mali-mali pa. Si Billy, walang kasaya-saya. Si Luis mali-mali. Bukas siguro ipapasok si John Lloyd. Eh di mas boring. Huwag na ring ibalik si Willie. Masyadong mayabang, nag-cha-chancing sa mga magagandang guest na babae (Search and Watch Even Demata videos in the Internet), palaging ini-insert ‘yong kanata niya at pa-ulit-ulit na kinakanta. Masyadong egotistical at walang galang sa mga babae. He takes advantage of women.
    Ibalik si IDOL. Magalang, guwapo, marunong kumanta, may pagka-funny na desirable and wholesome, magalang sa lahat, lalo na sa mga babae, at nakaka-enganyo.

    Pathetically speaking, there will always be criticisms, no matter what. You cannot satisfy millions of viewers. Contestants now only get awarded 5,000 pesos after showing their talent, good or bad. What happened to those 10,000, 15,000 or 20,000, no more?
    No more jackets to old and special children audiences? No one sings the Wowowee theme song anymore. HINDI NA AKO NAWIWILING MANOOD NA. The last time my family watched TFC was 3 weeks ago.
