Janine Gutierrez and Ken Chan salute Filipino workers

For Janine Gutierrez, who is one of the busiest actresses around with television and other projects left and right, taping for her newest assignment as Day Off co-host is her “day off.”
“It’s my time away from teleseryes,” she twinkles. The daughter of actors Lotlot de Leon and Ramon Christopher reveals that she had always wished to be part of the show since her first guesting — it is a show with heart, she describes.
Day Off, which has been running for 12 years already, the longest-running reality show of its kind on Philippine TV. It has been recognizing the most deserving and hardworking Filipinos here and abroad and rewarding them with a “day off” of their dreams.
“I’m super happy to be one of the new hosts of Day Off! I’ve always been a fan of the show and I got excited every time they used to ask me to guest. Each episode is a new and exciting experience,” says the Kapuso actress. “In the few episodes I’ve done, I’ve met so many amazing, hardworking Filipinos and I learned so much from them.”
Janine is not only looking forward to bringing new flavor to the show, but also to such meet hardworking Filipinos and trying out their jobs.
She is joined in this stint by actor Ken Chan, who confesses that he had been watching the show since he was a young boy. “I’m so happy, not just me, but my family is also happy for me. As a child I have always enjoyed talking. That is why Day Off is a perfect outlet for my dream to be a host,” he adds.
Beginning today, February 18, expect Saturdays to be both exciting and fun as Day Off takes off with Janine and Ken at the helm. The two had been featured as guest hosts before. Janine did several appearances including Day Off’s 11th  anniversary special shot in Thailand last December, while Ken was in the Chinese New Year episode this month.
“I expect it to be challenging and fun. I know I’m in for different adventures and trials, but I’m sure I will learn a lot together with the viewers of Day Off. Together, we’ll laugh and be amazed at our fellow Filipinos’ dedication to work,” says Janine.
What can they promise as the new hosts of Day Off?
“I promise that our viewers will enjoy every episode. We’ll get to know our Day Off winner better and give him or her new experiences he or she deserves,” offers Janine. “And I promise to be there every step of the way. I promise not to back down from any challenge!”
Ken says he wants to face his fears. “Last time I asked Day Off if they did anything special for Halloween. I am fond of scary stuff, but I’m actually a little afraid. They told me they featured a gravedigger. I’d like to try that one,” he ends.
Don’t miss Day Off every week starting this Saturday, 6:15 p.m. on GMA News TV.
