Fresh from their victory in the MYX VJ Search 2010, Julz, Ton and Robin were described as a “diverse and quirky combination” by MYX Channel Head Andre Allan Alvarez. “The three make a good combination. They have very distinct personalities and different types of sense of humor. But they’re all musically inclined.”
Alvarez added that Julz, Ton and Robin are those VJs that the viewers can easily relate to. “Ton is a musician and a fan of MYX ever since he was a kid. And I think he brings the point of view of the typical MYX fan/viewer. So, we’re hoping that the fans watching on TV can easily connect with Ton. Julz brings a lot of spunk. Her in-your-face attitude is something that a lot of boys and girls can easily identify with and she’s able to project it in a way that looks classy yet intense. Robin has a very unique stance. His personality is quite different from the others. His sharp wit and deadpan humor will offer something new for our viewers. They really make a very interesting bunch! We’ve never had this kind of combination before. And I think everyone will be bringing something that’s unique.”
During the presscon, the three new music ambassadors imparted their thoughts about being full-fledged MYX VJs. Eighteen-year-old red-haired college student Julz took pride in her recent achievement. “It’s such a great feeling. I am very proud that I was chosen as one of the newest MYX VJs. I’m really so happy! I think the public voted for me because they just like the true me. The hair could’ve helped. But I think it’s really the personality that I brought with everything else. Now that I’m on MYX, they can expect a lot of laughter, a lot of joy, and a lot of smiles to all the MYX viewers.”
As for 21-year-old pretty boy rocker Ton, being part of MYX is a dream come true. “This is something I really want. I’ve been a fan of MYX since I was knee-high. And now that I’m officially part of it, I’m just so thankful and excited. Now that I’m here, I’m gonna bring more attitude and more rock ‘n roll in MYX!”
And for 21-year old musician Robin, he said that he is going to give his all. “I’m gonna give whatever I can give, which is my randomness and my dad’s wit and my mom’s quick mouth whatever that means. To my supporters, thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me.”
The three new VJs will be seen on MYX this August. VJ Julz will host MYX International Top 20 (with VJ Janine), Pinoy MYX, My MYX, Pop MYX and Take 5. VJ Ton, meanwhile, will be seen on My MYX, Pop MYX, Rock MYX and Take 5. Then VJ Robin takes centerstage on My MYX, Pop MYX, Rock MYX and MYX Versions
