Toni says that witnessing participants transition to fellow hosts were some of her best moments on the Philippine reality show.

Witnessing all my co-hosts transition from housemates to PBB hosts are just some of the best moments in my life sa bahay ni Kuya!

She also wrote, “I will forever cherish the memories, big nights, and moments in my heart. Thank you, Kuya, for everything.”

“This is your angel now signing off,” she concluded.

According to the program’s official social media accounts, its management respects the former host’s decision. They wrote:

We respect the decision of Toni Gonzaga-Soriano to step down as [the] main host of “Pinoy Big Brother”.

Toni has been part of our reality show for 16 years and we thank her for helping bring the stories of our housemates to our viewers.
