ABS-CBN to launch reality show titled 'I Dare You'
Posted at 05/28/2011 8:28 PM | Updated as of 05/28/2011 10:53 PM
MANILA, Philippines – ABS-CBN is set to launch a new reality show titled "I Dare You" to be hosted by Jericho Rosales, Iya Villania and Melissa Cantiveros of "Pinoy Big Brother" fame.
At a photo shoot for the show held recently, the three hosts briefly discussed the gist of the new program, which is produced in partnership with the ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs Department.
"I Dare You" will offer viewers a new perspective on their favorite Kapamilya stars who will undergo different challenges to test their character.
According to Rosales, the concept of this show is one of a kind, veering away from the normal showcase of a reality program.
"Basically ibang klase siya. It's a reality show pero ito 'yung klase ng reality show na may puso talaga... Goal nito ang ipakita sa mga tao na ang mga artista ay may damdamin, may puso, marunong ng kapwa-tao,” he said.
“Ang goal din ng ‘I Dare You’ ay ibukas ang reyalidad ng normal na buhay sa mga artista. It's not a charity show na magbibigay tayo ng mga papremyo. Main goal is actually buksan ang puso at isipan sa reyalidad ng buhay at ang pagkakaiba ng ‘I Dare You’ sa ibang reality shows dahil punong puno siya ng puso,” Rosales added.
The actor also said he will never regret that he accepted this project.
“(The experience) was nothing but great. Lahat ng episodes naging malapit sa puso ko, namin nina Iya, Melai. Ito ang unang reality show ko na pinasok bilang isang host. Sumasabak din ako sa ibang challenges ng ibang ginagawa sa show,” he said.
Villania, on the other hand, said this show will make a person think twice about his/her own perspective in life.
"'Yung premyo pinaghihirapan nila hindi para sa kanila. Ang matatanggap ng mga challengers namin ay experience. Mag-iiba din kasi tingin mo sa sarili mong buhay,” she said.
Meanwhile, Cantiveros said she had a great time doing this show.
"Sobrang enjoy. Noong una nahihiya ako (sa kanila ni Echo at Iya) pero parang naging on-the-go [ang] feelings ko,” she said.
Exciting! Can't wait for this!
Smokey: Here's another version ng "kiss sa bridge" nina @jericho_rosales at @annecurtissmith sa #greenrose .. Enjoy!
I cant wait for another for Echo!!!!
I do not think it was a true issue at all na echo tried to woo karylle. Publicity lang ito dahil bago pa lang si karylle sa ABS and tamang tama lang na bigyan siya nang magandang publicity and that's was through echo. kung may babae segurong ipupursue ni echo iyan ay si anne. and sana nga totoo dahil echo and anne will make such a lovely couple.
Sexy Talk with Echo

Good enough, said Jericho “Echo” Rosales.
True, he didn’t come home with a major award from the just-concluded Newport Beach Film Festival held in Newport Beach, California, but the Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking Acting honor given him was, true to the title, an achievement to be proud of, considering that there were 400 (out of the 2,000 screened) films in the festival representing 50 countries.
Echo was cited for Subject: I Love You in which he plays the lead character Victor whose love for a disco deejay named Butterfly, played by Briana Evigan (of the movie Step-Up, etc.), leads him to send a love letter that comes with a virus through e-mail.
There were five categories in the filmfest: Jury Awards (for Best Feature Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, etc.), 2011 Audience Awards, 2011 Newport Beach Film Festival Honors, The 2011 Chuck Jones Center for Creativity Award for Achievement in Animation, and the 2011 MacGillivrayFreeman Films Awards.
Echo won in the 2011 Newport Beach Film Festival Honors category.
He was in the cast of ABS-CBN soap Green Rose which ended last Friday. Echo has just been tapped as the newest endorser of 555 Tuna (Lamang ang Malaman).
“I endorse only products that I really believe in,” said Echo. “555 Tuna has been part of my diet for a long time now.”
Meanwhile, let’s pause for a “sexy talk” with Echo who ends his answers with exclamation points.
What is sexy to you?
“Sexy for me is a healthy mind and a healthy body! I find intelligence very sexy! A good conversation with a girl could be very sexy for me!”
What makes you feel sexy?
“What makes me feel sexy is every time I come from the beach after coming either from a surf trip or any adventure. I also feel sexy after every work out…any kind of physical workout.”
Name three men you find as sexy as you are.
“Okay, Bayani Agbayani, Empoy and Smokey Manaloto!”

“I think... My shoulders and my arms.”
What part of a woman’s body do you find sexiest?
“What part of a woman’s body...? Well, the neck and collarbone! And her hips and lips!”
Sexiest part of the house?
“The kitchen. Kitchen = skill, comfort and satisfaction. I find a clean but often used kitchen very sexy!”
Sexiest time of the day?
“Eight p.m. That time for me is the culmination of my day! I should have done everything by that time so it’s time to relax at around 8 p.m.!”

“A crisp white shirt (rock a tie) or a white V-neck shirt and a pair of dark jeans! Boxer shorts for added comfort!”
