Julie Anne San Jose and Rita Daniela reminisced about the time when they were still contestants on QTV’s Popstar Kids way back in 2005.
The two, who were rivals on the said show, are now the hosts of Kapuso Network’s The Clash, a singing competition which is aired every weekend.
In an interview when asked about what it feels like seeing other contestants compete, Julia said that she knows what it feels like competing and hearing the comments from the judges.
Julia also added that it really brings back memories. “Bumabalik yung memories. Parang nire-relive mo rin yung mga memories and very, very nostalgic kasi kaming dalawa ni Rita, galing din po kami ng contest. Parehas kami ng sinalihan na contest.”
Rita shared her experience as a contestant saying that it was really hard seeing contestants battle it out. She was also asked what she feels every time she goes on stage to meet the participants.
“…Mahirap. Kasabayan namin, not just kasabayan but one of our real friends in life is competing right now in this season. So, parang mas nararamdaman na parang, hala! Contest ulit na parang bumabalik ulit kami sa dati.”
Adding the fact that the contestants were very lucky since they have the Journey hosts to comfort them, Rita compared their time on Popstar Kids to The Clash.
“…yung panahon namin ni Julie, wala pang ganon, walang certain people na magko-comfort sa amin na okay lang yan ganito ganyan, wala.”
The Clash is GMA Network’s own musical competition and it is hosted by Rayver Cruz and Julie Anne San Jose as Clashmasters, together with Rita Daniela and Ken Chan as Journey Hosts. The third season premiered last October 3 and airs weekends at 7:45 pm.
