Running Man Philippines star Lexi Gonzales is happy to prove their bashers wrong after their reality show continues to earn high TV ratings on NUTAM people ratings.
In GMA network’s exclusive interview with Gonzales on September 21, the actress said their hard work has paid off.
“Sobrang natutuwa kami. I mean, at first kasi nakakatanggap kami ng halu-halong comments and hindi lahat ng comments natatanggap namin positive.
“Although, at the time na nagsho-shoot pa kami sa Korea, sobrang na-appreciate na namin ‘yung mga supporters talaga ng Running Man Philippines. But then, now, it’s overwhelming na nakikita namin ‘yung success ng show. And sobrang masaya kami, kasi lahat ng boss, lahat ng staff, they gave their heart talaga for the show.
“Kaya sobrang natutuwa ako nagpi-pay off ‘yung paghihirap namin,” she said.
Gonzales then said that they proved their bashers wrong with the success of Running Man Philippines.
“Yes of course! I mean, part na talaga ‘yun na parang, ‘Oh ‘di ba! Kaya namin ‘to.’ It’s a good show. At first, marami lang nag-doubt, but we’re doing well now. Masaya!”
