The Return of Talentadong Pinoy

One of TV5’s most beloved programs returns for a new season.

‘Talentadong Pinoy’, TV5’s premier talent show, will make its much-awaited comeback this Saturday. The program, which was one of the few remnants of TV5’s ‘Shake Mo TV Mo’ era, appeared to have been cancelled after airing the Worldwide Battle Royale last year. But hints of a return began to surface early this year, which was later confirmed by TV5.

The revived ‘Talentadong Pinoy’, however, will not have the services of original host Ryan Agoncillo , who signed a non-exclusive contract with GMA and is currently appearing on ‘Ismol Family’ and TAPE’s ‘Eat Bulaga’. When asked about the return of ‘Talentadong Pinoy’ and the possibility of him returning as host, Agoncillo indicated that he has no intention of returning to ‘Talentadong Pinoy’ anytime soon.

Instead, the hosting duties for ‘Talentadong Pinoy’ now fall into the hands of Robin Padilla and Mariel Rodriguez. The recently married showbiz couple were no strangers to hosting, having been a part of Willie Revillame’s noontime programs in the past.

With a new host comes a new cast of talented individuals who will try to impress the judges and the television audience. Auditions for ‘Talentadong Pinoy’ were held throughout the months of May and June, and the aforementioned talents will be revealed in the coming episodes.

That said, the expectations are high for the new hosts to deliver ‘Talentadong Pinoy’ to the similar, if not higher levels of succees enjoyed in the Ryan Agoncillo era. Whether or not they can take the show to the next level remains to be seen.

‘Talentadong Pinoy’ returns this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. on TV5.
