"Kasi yun yung bilang pasasalamat ko sa lahat ng mga nakatrabaho ko sa tatlong taon. Kasi nga sobrang hirap ng paggawa ng Ang Probinsyano,” the actor pointed out.
“Yun naman ay pagbibigay tanaw sa lahat ng paghihirap na ibinigay nila sa amin kaya sobra akong nagpapasalamat sa kanila. At saka very tight, talagang pamilyang pamilya ang turingan namin dun sa isa't isa," he added.
When questioned why he did not ask Yassi to be his partner during the event, Coco said that he and the promising actress are good friends just like what they are with other celebrties in the show.

"Si Julia mabait naman. Maayos naman si Jules. Hindi lang kami nagkikita kasi nga dahil hindi kami magkasama sa work pero maayos na maayos naman lahat,” he added.
