In an effort to boost market share in the ever tightening struggle on TV viewership, ABS-CBN's Pilipinas Win na Win continues to embrace risky changes as a reshuffle of hosts continues. Former Wowowee host Janelle Jaimer, after weeks of hosting, was kikced out of the job to give way for K Brosas who was promoted to be a mainstay in the said noontime show.
In an interview with Janelle Jamer and Gee Canlas on the red carpet of the 24th PMPC Star Awards for Television last November 13, they want to clarify why there were suddenly pulled out as co-hosts of noontime variety show Pilipinas Win na Win.
Pilipinas Win na Win was launched last July 31 to replace Wowowee. Initially the show was to be top-billed by Robin Padilla, Kris Aquino, Mariel Rodriguez, Pokwang, and Valerie Concepcion. But after a series of changes implemented, new hosts were installed—The Hitmakers Rico J Puno, Rey Valera, Marco Sison, Nonoy Zuñiga—along with Pokwang, Valerie, Janelle, and Gee.
Janelle, who started out with Wowowee but resigned after two years, explained that she had to be pulled out from Win na Win because she will have to repackage herself for her soon-to-be-released album. “I will be coming out with a new album na hindi talaga pang masa. The management knows na ibang path ‘yung gusto kong tahakin. While I was in Win na Win, I really enjoyed the company of everyone. Naramdaman ko talaga ‘yung love from all the staff. Never akong nakaramdam ng bad treatment.”
Janelle confirmed that there was a reason behind their pull out from Win na Win, but refused to specify what new projects ABS-CBN has for her and Gee. “Hindi pa kasi kami pwedeng magsalita kung ano ‘yung mga plano for us. Basta abangan niyo. Hindi nila ako papabalikin and then tatanggalin bigla. Alam kong may iba silang plano for us.”
