Toni Gonzaga will be hosting the next edition of Kapamilya reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent” (PGT).

This information was made public after Luis Manzano, who originally co-hosts the show with Billy Crawford, said he “opted out” of the gig.

“Something new for everyone 🙂 I opted out for the betterment of the show,” he said in a Twitter post on November 24.

Responding to reactions from people online, he also said: “Ibang flavor dala ni Toni! 🙂 Siyempre, Toni ‘yan eh.” [Toni brings another flavor! Of course, that’s Toni.]

Would his exit be due to the tension with judge Angel Locsin? Locsin will be coming back as judge for this season. She and Luis used to be in a long-time relationship but they split up last year.

Luis is now in a relationship with Jessy Mendiola.

According to an article by ABS-CBN, PGT’s sixth season have already started its auditions. All of its judges will be returning. These include Vice Ganda, Robin Padilla and Freddie Garcia.
