MANILA — Judy Ann Santos is set to return to ABS-CBN to host the network’s newest realiserye “I Do.”
“I Do” is the newest offering from the Kapamilya network. This show will feature couples from different parts of the country who are set to marry. Nine pairs with the most interesting love stories will compete in various challenges that will definitely test the strength and endurance of their relationship. In the end, the winning couple will win the wedding of their dreams, house and lot, and one million pesos.
Santos shared that the chosen couples are very lucky because the show will help them in preparation of what to expect during their married life and once they decide to have children.
In the show, Santos will be joined by two credible marriage and relationship experts – life coach Pia Acevedo and psychologist and marriage counselor Dr. Julian Montano. She will also be joined by co-host comedian Jason Gainza.
The chosen couples will live in the I Do Village. They will learn to mingle and get along with each other. They will also be given challenges, and in every cycle a couple will be eliminated. Santos together with the panel of experts will determine who stays and who leaves.
In preparation for her role, Santos said that she used her personal experience to give pieces of advice to the couples. She is married with host Ryan Agoncillo for almost five years. They have a son together named Lucho.
“I am not a perfect wife. I am not a perfect mother,” she said. “My life is an open book. I have no right to invent stories or talk about things that people know I did not experience.”
Santos also admitted that in doing the show, she learned a lot from her coaches and the nine couples.
“Inaabangan ko kung ‘yung pinagdaanan nila doon sa days na wala ako sa loob ng village. And then, they would give me updates and I would realize that it could really happen and what can be done,” she said.
