Luis Manzano is indeed at his best in being a host. While he was starting his hosting career in 2003 by being one of the hosts of ASAP and on the music cable channel MYX, Luis was immediately recognized as the Best New Male TV Personality on the 17th PMPC Star Awards for TV. As years passed, Luis continued to make his own mark as a host and was yearly awarded for being the Best Male TV Host in the various showbiz-oriented shows, game shows and talent search programs he has hosted in.
Hosting for more than a decade now, Luis has undoubtedly excelled in his field. And with all the many TV programs he has hosted, it is still astonishing how he always finds a way to spice up the show and make it more lively and fresh.
Now, as the game show that Luis has hosted since 2013 comes back on Philippine television, let’s look back at some of the funniest and most unforgettable moments of Luis with the Minute to Win It contestants through the years!
One funny thing that Luis has always initiated on the game is the impromptu drama acting he does when he needs to say goodbye to the eliminated contestant. Remember how funny he is in forming crazy scenarios by saying some comically melancholic lines? How he pulled off his dramatic acts with his best friend/ It’s Showtime host Anne Curtis and comediennes Tuesday Vargas and Iyah Mina are one of the best!
Having a sharp eye on such wacky details, Luis also makes everyone crack up with those witty remarks seeing the contestants’ reactions. One of our millionaires Jodi Sta. Maria’s hilarious reaction with the smoking machine was even replayed on the screen as requested by Luis! He also made us laugh by mimicking how PBB Ex housemates Kisses Delavin and Tanner Mata did the challenges given to them.
Knowing his strengths as a person, Luis is also very funny whenever he emphasizes how “blessed” he is with his looks. Luis even asked the former Pinoy showbiz heartthrob Jao Mapa about some tips on how he should manage his “gwapo problems”.
Another thing Luis does so well is his amusing banters with show contestants. Some of those who had the wittiest banters with Luis were Nash Aguas, Kim Molina, Maymay Entrata and Ogie Alcasid. He would sometimes play a prank on them like what he did to Alex Gonzaga, or surprise them like what he did to comedians Negi and Long. Luis is also very funny whenever he puts the talents of our contestants on the spotlight like what he did with comedian Brod Pete and singer Marcelito Pomoy.
Laugh on all those mentioned moments again by watching this Kapamilya Toplist! And be sure to catch more of these on the new season of Minute to Win It, weeknights before TV Patrol on Primetime Bida.
