Excited ang Kapuso host and basketball star na si Chris Tiu sa bagong niyang TV project na Wattajob, kung saan makakasama niya sina Heart Evangelista at John Feir. Sa pictorial at press conference ng naturang show last November 9, 2012, nagkuwento si Chris tungkol sa mga dapat abangan ng mga viewers sa kanilang programa, pati na rin ang odd jobs na gusto at ikinatatakot niyang masubukan.
“It’s going to be a show where we will be featuring unusual and unique jobs all over the world. It could be really dirty, messy, difficult jobs. It’s actually a canned material from Canada, so we’ll be featuring those odd jobs. At the same time, we are going to be featuring local odd jobs. We will be interviewing and featuring a Filipino doing something really unique. The twist there is that kaming mga hosts—me and Heart, will actually be doing the challenge. We’ll be trying out the odd and difficult jobs ourselves. We’ll be getting ourselves dirty, and really wacky out there, and that’s the exciting part. [It’s] something I’ve never done before—going down the septic tank, for example, or forcing animals to mate, cleaning high-rise buildings, something like that,” explains Chris.
May mensahe rin daw ang show na gustong iparating sa mga nagtatrabaho. “No matter how difficult, how dirty, or how degrading our job may seem, these people don’t complain and they still do their jobs wholeheartedly and with a lot of love. And they are proud of their jobs,” he shares.
Hindi na rin makapaghintay si Chris na makita ang mga gagawin ng co-host niyang si Heart, na nakasama na rin niya sa ilang episodes ng iBilib. “Heart is perceived to be very clean and very ‘sosyal’ ang image niya, di ba? This time you’re going to see her in a totally different light, someone who’s going to get herself deep in poop, touching the intestines of an animal, doing makeup for a corpse, stuff like that. I’m excited myself to see how Heart is going to react to it. And me also, I don’t know if I can handle it.”
When asked kung anong odd job ang gusto niyang masubukan, ito ang naging sagot ni Chris, who couldn’t stop laughing. “Siguro ‘yung pagpapa-mate ng mga baboy or ng ibang animals. It’s going to be quite an experience; hindi ko alam kung mandidiri ako or ma-eexcite ako.”
Ano naman kaya ang kinatatakutan niya?
“Siguro ang bumabad sa septic tank. I don’t know if I can handle it, or ‘yung kailangan magpintura ng gilid ng high-rise building. Takot kasi ako sa heights, nagkaka-vertigo attack ako. I’m dreading those things and I’m hoping I won’t have to do it, si Heart na lang (laughs). Pero hindi yata [puwede]—kailangan what I do, she has to do; all for one and one for all.”
Abangan sina Chris Tiu at Heart Evangelista with John Feir sa Wattajob, simula November 17, pagkatapos ng Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, sa Sabado Star Power sa Gabi ng GMA. -- Michelle Caligan, GMANetwork.com
