“For the longest time, I have been doing dramas, both on television and in movies. Those things have different requirements. But I feel at home doing ‘Family Feud’ because it doesn’t feel like work to me. I don’t have a serious role to play.

Hosting “Family Feud’’ greater than a decade in the past was one of the memorable assignments given to him by his dwelling community.

“That job really made a mark on me. I was already happy with my experience then; I can now say that I hosted a show I loved, a show that has franchises around the world. And so, when I heard there was a possibility that the show was returning to GMA 7, I couldn’t help but wonder who would get the hosting job. I wasn’t expecting, but I was excited about who the choice would be.”


In “Family Feud,” which at the moment has greater than 30 energetic worldwide franchises, two households or teams compete in naming the most well-liked solutions to random survey questions.

“I don’t just facilitate the game; I join in the fun. I enjoy hosting it because I consider the stage as a home, where I welcome families. It’s like having friends over to play games. It’s not scripted, I don’t have information to deliver. I enjoy the interaction. It’s organic and anything can happen, which makes things more exciting.”
