Kapamilya artist Maika Rivera revealed why FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano remains as the flag-bearer of Kapamilya shows.
During an exclusive interview, Rivera gave her insights on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano success over the years.
“Nandiyan po ‘yung proof right. FPJ has been there for six years. Hindi siya tatagal ng ganon kung walang ginagawang sobrang ganda si sir CM, si direk CM.
“We are listening to the audience po. Nakikinig po talaga ‘yung Probinsyano sa audience. This is really for the people. Probinsyano talaga is created, shot, and made, and taped for the people.”
Rivera then shared how she broke the ice when she first started in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
“Although they’re amazing stars and accomplished so much in the industry, we tend to forget that these great actors and actresses are also people.
“And if you just say hi, and just be kind, and you really approach them. Syempre, i-approach mo sila and just say na, ‘Hello po, I’m Maika.’ Talaga pong hindi kayo mahihiyang mag-reach out, magpakilala they will welcome you with open arms.”
She also recalled creating Tiktok Video with the seasoned actress Lorna Tolentino.
“Nagsimula kaming mag-Tiktok ni Miss LT (Lorna Tolentino), kami nauna, tapos ang daming nag-views. Tapos na-excite naman sila Nonong at tsaka sila sir Rowell. Sabi niya, ‘tara tayo rin mag-Tiktok.’ So ‘yun, lahat kami nag-Tiktok na.”
Coco Martin’s FPJAP remains one of the top-rated TV shows in the country despite their limited reach due to the ABS-CBN’s lack of franchise.
Aside from their constant TV ratings, FPJAP beats its competition with the online views of their daily episodes, with most reaching 1 million views in just 24 hours.
