Richard will replace former host Paolo Bediones, who transferred to TV5 a few months after the 2nd season ended. Ryan Agoncillo was first tapped for the hosting stint but he has commitment with TV5 as the face of the top-rating Talentadong Pinoy. Dingdong Dantes and Drew Arellano were also considered for the job.
Richard is excited for this project because he likes outdoor activities.
“It’s something bago ulit dahil nga it’s with the news and public affairs and it’s a reality show. It’s my first time to host a reality show so i’m looking forward to it,” he said.
In the upcomng season 3 of the USTv Best Reality show, celebrities will vie for the title.
