Rising star Atasha Muhlach has joined TV5’s noontime program E.A.T. as the newest Dabarkad host.
The Legit Dabarkads of E.A.T. gave a warm welcome to the celebrity daughter of Aga Muhlach and Charlene Gonzalez as the newest addition to the show on its Saturday episode, last Sept. 23.
The new host was unveiled through a performance number where Atasha showcased her stage charisma and flair for dancing.
“Gusto ko lang sabihin [na] magandang tanghali sa inyong lahat! Maraming-maraming salamat po. Sobrang masaya po ako to be here sa E.A.T. kasama ng legit Dabarkads!” Atasha concluded her introductory perfomance number with a message to the audience and her co-hosts.
She added, “Maraming salamat po sa warm welcome and I’m really excited to be part of such a beautiful and kind-hearted family.”
Atasha was introduced as Tash, making her the youngest member of the artificial intelligence (AI) family whose faces resemble the hosts and are also voiced by some of them.
On her debut day, she smoothly engaged in playful banter with the AI version of the comedic duo Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola, who were stationed outdoors at the time for the “Sugod Bahay Mga Kapatid” segment of the program.
Atasha thanked her parents in a sentimental message, “Marami akong gustong sabihin sa mga magulang ko pero maraming-maraming salamat sa lahat ng suportahan at love mula bata pa ako at mahal na mahal ko kayo. Thank you.”
E.A.T. mainstay Joey De Leon also took to social media to welcome Atasha into their crew.
“Welcome our new Dabarkads, Atasha Muhlach! 🎈BUO na ang Dabarkads at yung anak ng ORIGINAL TITLE na pag-aari namin, the last three letters ay narito na!—-Eat BulAGA! 🎈#TVJonTV5 #LegitDabarkads,” the veteran comedian-host wrote in the caption along with the Dabarkads group photo.
Atasha graduated with honors from her business degree at Nottingham Trent University in the United Kingdom. She officially entered the showbiz industry after signing with Viva Artists Agency last July.
