MANILA, Philippines - Actor-host Robi Domingo is now part of the second season of the ABS-CBN reality TV series "I Dare You."
"Ngayon I'm handling a show which is entitled 'I Dare You Season 2.' Babalik na siya," Domingo said.
When "I Dare You" debuted last year, the reality show was hosted by Melai Cantiveros, Iya Villania and Jericho Rosales. Domingo, however, revealed that so far only Cantiveros has been confirmed for the new season.
In the show, the hosts and their celebrity guests go through different challenges to win prizes for ordinary Filipinos with inspiring stories to share. The celebrities get to experience the life of ordinary people and what they do in an ordinary day.
Among the celebrities who participated in the first season were Vice Ganda, Kim Chiu, Angeline Quinto, Ethel Booba, Phoemela Baranda and Miriam Quiambao.
Aside from having new hosts, the second season of "I Dare You" will be more challenging and physically demanding, according to Domingo.
"Ito mas maraming challenges, mas mahirap 'yung binibigay naming hamon para sa mga Kapamilya. Ang mga pini-feature namin dito hindi ordinaryong tao lang na nakikita natin pang-araw-araw. Dito sila 'yung mga taong hindi napapansin ng community natin, ng society natin at dito sa show na ito ay bibigyan natin sila ng importansiya," the former "Pinoy Big Brother" teen housemate said.
"Hindi ito 'yung tulad ng ibang reality show na you do a challenge we will give you this. Ito pagdadaanan ito ng ating mga 'celebrity kakampi' for a month or two months. Hindi siya one day lang, immersion talaga siya. We try to put their selves out of the box at 'yung comfort zone nila ay nawawala," said Domingo, who's hoping that the new show will air on November.
Asked if Rosales will still be part of the show, Domingo replied: "Yun 'yung isa pang sikreto na dapat niyong pakaabangan."
