Celebrities transferring from one network to another is not new in the showbiz industry. However, such news will still make a buzz. Recently, Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) alum Jason Francisco was placed in the hot seat after he was questioned about his reason for transferring from ABS-CBN to rival network, GMA.
Jason Francisco started his career in the limelight when he joined the network’s reality game show PBB. After over seven years of being a solid Kapamilya star, the actor-comedian had a change of heart and transferred to become a Kapuso talent.
It was in July 2017 when many netizens noticed Jason working in a different network. His first appearance as a Kapuso star was on the primetime series, “Alyas Robin Hood: Book Two.”
In a recent interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), the 30-year-old actor-comedian boldly revealed his reason for leaving his home network.
Jason admitted that even before he made a name for himself in the showbiz industry, he has always been a fan of some Kapuso shows. “Maganda rito sa Kapuso, may puso talaga rito,” he even quipped.
According to the former Kapamilya star, he was a bit hesitant to confront the management of ABS-CBN regarding his plans to switch networks. But despite this, he has found a way to make it possible without burning a bridge.
“Pero sabi ko naman, ‘Gusto ko lang po ma-try sa GMA.’ Kaya ayun naghanda rin ako bago ako lumipat. Akala kasi ng iba, nawala na lang ako.”
It was also because of new opportunities and chances to work with different people that prompted his decision to leave his former network. He clarified that not having enough projects was the reason why he transferred. He said he had to lay low to avoid further complications.
“Kaya ‘yung iba akala nila bigla nalang akong nawala, wala na kong trabaho, pero hindi naman ako pinabayaan ng [ABS-CBN].”
