On October 17, Kim Atienza and Emil Sumangil said their success in Dapat Alam Mo! is due to the tips they heard from Eat Bulaga! host Joey De Leon.
They admitted that they learned how to maintain their audiences and create good dynamics during hosting.
“In-apply ko ‘yung narinig ko kay Mr. Joey De Leon ng Eat Bulaga dati, ang tanong sa kanya ng press, ano hong sikreto ng bawat host – para tumagal ho kayo ng ganyan? Ang kanyang tugon – alam ng bawat isa kung saan kami lulugar [at] kung hanggang saan lamang kami – at binibigyan namin ng pagkakataon ang bawat isa,” Sumangil said.
Atienza supported this statement by applying De Leon’s tips about content. He admitted that Eat Bulaga was able to run for decades due to its focus on the quality of content.
“Kaya tumagal ang Eat Bulaga, dahil ang focus ng mga host ay hindi sa kanila kun’di sa kung ano ‘yung binibigay nung show… p’wede kaming palitan dito pero ang content na binibigay ng Dapat Alam Mo! [ay] dapat malalim, up-to-date, at nakakaaliw,” Atienza seconded.
The host told the press how their delivery evolved during its first year. He added that the show started very straightforwardly until it transitioned to a more informal way of delivery.
“It makes the show more interesting and more engaging… Kaya siguro pinapanood kami – kaya nagugustuhan ang show.”
Sumangil and Atienza also said that the show’s way of delivery is one of the reasons for its success. Patricia Tumulak, their co-host for the program, said that their informative and interactive content delivery impacted their audience the most.
