MANILA -- When it comes to hosting, Luis Manzano has surpassed his dad, Edu, at least according to the country's "Queen of Talk."

Kris Aquino believes that Luis is a better host than Edu, especially considering the former's age.

Luis is currently the host of two Kapamilya game shows, "Minute to Win It" and "Deal or No Deal."

"Just basing it sa edad, sobrang galing na ni Luis," said Aquino, the former host of the local edition of "Deal or No Deal."

"And I think any parent naman ay mapa-proud sa na-achieve ng anak niya. So, I think Edu would say na ibibigay niya ang trono kay Luis kasi magaling talaga si Luis, at masipag at mabait. At higit sa lahat, business partner ko ngayon," added Aquino, who is Luis' partner in his taxi business.

Previously, Edu replaced Aquino in hosting the defunct game show "Pilipinas, Game KNB?" where the former popularized the "Papaya" dance craze.

Aquino also commended Edu for his unique hosting style.

"He was good. Oo naman, magaling naman siya kasi iba ang flavor niya. Kasi comic naman siya at may 'Papaya' pa siya na napasikat. My God, mamamatay ako bago ako pasayawin. I cannot talaga. Maglakad nga lang nadadapa na ako, magsayaw pa," Aquino said.
