"Siyempre lilinawin lang naman natin, walang planong palitan, wala kaming chance palitan si Tito, Vic and Joey. Wala kaming chance dun. We were just called to work. To continue the show because gusto ng TAPE office na magkapagbigay ng papremyo, saya everyday."
Betong, on the other hand, shared that he was able to feel the support from people who were at the studio.
"Pagpasok mo dito, 'yung atmosphere, talagang naramdaman mo na andu'n sila para bigyan kami ng suporta," Betong said.
Meanwhile, Buboy aired, "Naka-focus po ako sa entertainment. Nagtiwala po sila sa akin, at magtitiwala rin po ako sa mga nanonood."
Furthermore, Paolo expressed his hope that people would give them a chance as they do their job as hosts.
"Bilang kami 'yung kinuha ng TAPE, responsibilidad namin na gawin ang 100% namin."
"I hope you give us a chance. Kasi at the end of the day, pinatawag kami para tumulong sa tao, para makapagpasaya ng tao. How you can say no to that?" said Paolo.
