"More than physically prepared, I think I'm very much emotionally prepared, spiritually prepared to take on anything, lalong-lalo na napaka-espesyal na program kagaya nito, dahil kakaiba ngayon 'yung inspirasyon at motivation (more so because this program is very special, and I feel a different kind of inspiration and motivation)," he said.
