Iya Villania Enjoying Being Co-Host Of Solenn Heussaff In 'Taste Buddies'

IYA VILLANIA is enjoying hosting "Taste Buddies" on GMA News TV with Solenn Heussaff and doesn't mind if she's a replacement for Isabelle Daza. "I'm having fun with Solenn kasi masaya siyang kasama," she says. "Sa taping, tawanang kami nang tawanan. I'm really happy sa paglipat ko sa GMA kasi they also gave me the chance to host the documentary, 'Mundo ni Juan sa Japan', which was shown last Saturday and was about the life of Filipinos working there. Favorite travel destination ko ang Japan along with my husband (Drew Arellano) even before we got married kaya doing the documentary was really a good experience for me."

Just like Drew, Iya is very athletic and she's training to join the Iron Man 70.3 Triathlon Competition to be held in Vietnam in May. "First time ko to join it and I'm really preparing hard for it," she says. “As much as possible I try to work out everyday. Parang nilalagnat ako kapag hindi ako nakaka-work out. I'm hoping I'll be fit enough by then para tapusin yung competition. I don't want to be quitting nang hindi ko yung nakukumpleto."
