MANILA, Philippines – "Pinoy Big Brother" big winner Melai Cantiveros admitted she got nervous about hosting the upcoming ABS-CBN reality show “I Dare You.”

Cantiveros told Push.com.ph that although she has gotten used to hosting because of her daily stint in “Happy Yipee Yehey,” she explained that it is very different to host a reality show alongside Jericho Rosales and Iya Villania.

“Aaminin ko, sa una nahiya ako, siyempre kasi si Jericho ‘yan eh. Ha ha ha! Si Iya naman, VJ ‘yan. Sobrang Englisher (sic) ‘yan,” she said.

Cantiveros, however, revealed that she felt at ease in time and enjoyed the company of the two hosts.

“Sobrang enjoy sila katrabaho. Nung tumagal talaga gumanda ‘yong samahan namin. On the go na ‘yong feelings ko. Ha ha ha! Hindi na ako nahihiya sa kanila. Kami ni Iya parang magka-level na lang ang ganda namin. Ha ha ha,” she said.

According to Cantiveros, she will be the one who will make the challengers and the viewers happy in this show.

“Dito ako ‘yong host na may pagkabaliw. Pangloko-loko lang ako. Hindi naman ‘yong sobrang serious. Pero nagbibigay din ako ng mensahe sa mga challengers. Pinapasaya ko ang mga challengers pati na rin ang mga viewers,” she said.

"I Dare You" is a project of ABS-CBN Entertainment TV Production and ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs.

It will offer viewers a new perspective on their favorite Kapamilya stars who will undergo different challenges to test their character.
