Award-winning actress Iza Calzado is pulling out all the stops to prepare for one of her most challenging projects to date — hosting the newest season of the country’s biggest reality show “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition,” which premieres February 3 on ABS-CBN.
“It’s my first time hosting a major TV show. I’m happy because I learned a lot from it. As much as I can, I will make sure that I will do it right and I will give my very best for this project,” Iza said.
To prepare, Iza underwent a workshop to enhance her hosting skills.
“Of course, I need to work hard as a host so I can help the whole team showcase the contestants’ struggles, as well as their experiences and weight-loss journey inside the camp,” said Iza.
Aside from hosting, Iza will also impart her weight-loss success story and experiences. Iza has been open about her struggle with her weight when she was a teenager. She went through daunting challenges in her life, but bravely faced all of them and persevered to lose the extra pounds. This is why many regard Iza as credible to host “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles.”
Through her experiences, she has proven that people who are dealing with the same problem can get on the road to better health.
Watch how Iza braved all these challenges in an episode of “MMK” to be aired on February 1.
The reality show’s much-awaited premiere on February 3, meanwhile, will feature the transformation of 14 pairs of overweight Filipinos who will face difficult challenges and compete in their journey to a better health and better life.
Like in the previous edition, the contestants will live in a camp where they will undergo rigorous training conducted by challenge masters Matteo Guidicelli and Robi Domingo, along with coaches Jim and Toni Saret.
Each pair is expected to do everything it takes to stay in the competition and encourage each other to lose weight —a twist that will also test their relationship as relatives, work colleagues, or friends and will show that in having a partner, the journey to a better life will be lighter.
