After being part of the recently concluded Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited, John Prats said he gained a lot of perspective after experiencing what it was like being a host after being a housemate in PBB’s Celebrity Edition back in 2006.
“Well it’s better, the feeling that na ikaw naman ngayon yung nanunuod sa kanila, you get to comment on what they’re doing and masaya lang siya pero pressured lang lagi ako pag mga eviction night. But after that okay na naman ako and mahirap talaga maging housemate. Yung job din naman namin ngayon medyo mahirap din. To be the host of Pinoy Big Brother ang magtatawid sa mga viewers sa nangyayari sa loob ng Bahay ni Kuya and then the audience,” he said.

John said his first real immersion into hosting was in the now defunct noontime show Happy Yipee Yehey where he would go outside the studios and visit different barangays by himself to interview the crowd. The 28-year-old actor-turned-host admitted to feeling a bit overwhelmed during his first few days on the job. “Na-overwhelm ako pero in a positive way. Kasi yun naman yung objective ng show is for the people, para sa kanila talaga. Kumbaga sila yung bida ng show. So nung na-a-achieve ko yun, sobra ako na-happy and mas na-appreciate ko yung mga blessings na dumarating sa ‘yo, pag kinakausap mo yung sa mga tao dun sa mga palengke, kung gaano kahirap ang buhay nila na yung iba talagang pag nagtrabaho sila yung kikitain nila nung araw na yun eksaktong ipapakain nila sa pamilya nila. And nagiging grounded ka siguro as a person, ang sarap lang kasi sa show na yun is nagbibigay ka ng fun and joy at the same time nakakatulong din sa kanila,” he told Push.com.ph.

As PBB Teen Edition’s newest host, John said he has fully embraced hosting as part of his career in showbiz. “Dati ang ginagawa ko nag-ko-comedy ako and then drama, but now I’m more in love with hosting since na-try ko siya sa HYY na mag-isa lang ako sa labas and ang dami kong nakakausap na tao. Ang dami ko kasing natututunan sa mga tao na nakakausap ko and nakaka-adik siya. Now I’m in love with hosting that’s why gusto ko halos lahat ng trabaho ko hosting. When it comes to Banana Split din naman host din ako dun so ang saya lang. Kasi that’s you eh, you’re not portraying a role, ikaw yun,” he said.

For this upcoming season, John said he hopes the current batch of teen housemates will just be true to their real personality. “With teens naman kasi mas magiging light and mas fun yung show. Dapat ganun kasi ganun naman talaga ang mga teenagers, ‘di ba? Masaya and enjoy lang. Dapat siguro huwag sila mahiyang ipakita yung tunay na sila. Kasi yun lang yung ginawa ko. When you enter Pinoy Big Brother, dapat totoo ka. Kasi kung nagpaka-plastic ka sa loob ng bahay ni kuya at nanalo ka, para sa puso mo hindi ka panalo kasi hindi naman ikaw yun. Hindi ikaw yung minahal ng tao, nag-portray ka lang ibang pagkatao. so enjoyin na nila yung pagpasok sa bahay, enjoyin nila yung experience kasi yan ang experience na parang privilege yun eh. Sa libu-libong nag-audition, few lang yung napipili at dahil dun, dapat lubos-lubusin na nila yung moment na makapasok sa bahay ni kuya dahil yan yung makukuwento mo pagtanda mo or pag nanay sa nila, mashe-share mo yun sa mga anak mo,” he said.
