He recalled how he was “so starstruck” to be working alongside Donita Rose, who appeared on the cover of TIME magazine’s Asian edition in July 1999, and Rica Peralejo, whom he called a “teen star.”

Along with the two actresses, Atienza also worked with Edu Manzano and broadcast journalist Pinky Webb, who were the main hosts of the show at the time.
