During the show’s press conference yesterday, August 10, in 55 Events Place, Scout Rallos, Quezon City, Judy Ann stated that she was very happy about the hosting offer since she was an avid viewer of the original Masterchef show.

“It’s a dream come true, sa totoo lang po talaga. Never kong naisip, noong pinapanood ko ang Junior Masterchef Australia, na makakarating siya dito sa Pilipinas. Iniisip ko, mayroon ba talagang sasali na Pilipino kung sakaling makarating rito ang Masterchef. Noong in-offer sa akin, noong kinausap ako nina Tatay Lauren [Dyogi, director], logo pa lang, naluha na ako. Kasi, pinapanood ko siya, e. Fan ako ng show na ito,” she said.

Furthermore, the actress said that she feels nervous about her first hosting job. She said, “Mas kinakabahan ako kasi hindi naman ako talaga host. Ang alam ko lang talaga ay magmemorya, umarte, makipag-away sa eksena, pumunta sa set nang ready na akong umarte. Ito, kailangang dumating ako sa set nang handa ang emosyon ko at nakikipag-usap sa mga bata.
Dapat handa rin ang emosyon ko bilang nanay. Kasi, every time na, halimbawa, naiiyak sila kapag may hindi nagawa. It’s a different experience. For me, it’s a learning process para sa isang taong kagaya ko na umarte simula bata pa lang. Ang pagiging host, para akong nasa college. Ibang-ibang klaseng mundo po talaga ito kaya kinakabahan ako.”

Also, she felt glad that the hosting job was given to her inspite of many chef artists. “It’s an adventure and it’s a privilege na ibinigay sa akin ito dahil hindi ko naisip na… Marami namang artistang chef, e, hindi lang ako.”

She also reason out why she chose the hosting job for her showbiz comeback. “Gusto ko kasi, kapag nag-comeback ako, medyo relaxed. Natiyempo lang din po.”

Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo was lead actress of Ysabella, an ABS-CBN TV series about a young chef. She had been away from showbiz since she got pregnant with their son, Lucho.
