Coming 10 June, Mister Young will be with his new “old partner”, X, to host the upcoming new evening program – The Ex-Factor on Power 98FM.
You may wonder why new “old partner”? Well, X is actually a new partner to Mister Young in hosting The Ex-Factor, but was actually his ex, an old partner in life. She is non other than Jacqui Thibodeaux, whom used to host ‘Say It With Music’ at 987FM. They used to be couple that lasted for almost 5 years long.
Most often, couples within the same office is a taboo, what about ex-couples? Can Ex-es still remain as friends after a break up and keep their heads cool? Wouldn’t it be awkward to come face to face almost every evening for a straight 3 hours? What if there comes a dispute? What if… These are some of the initial concerns of the station Program Manager, Ms. Shareen Wong.
However, upon seeing Jacqui in person, Shareen realised that that her concerns are dispensable after all. The Ex-es are quirky and with real great chemistry. So even if they really attempt to bicker on air, the program will most likely turn out to be entertaining, than to be a hazard.
Together with a group of bloggers, we had the privilege to meet up with this ex-couple in person.
Grace, Jayne, Charleen, Ben, Smith, Darren Sim and NinjaGirlSg together with Shareen Wong, Mister Young & Jacqui from Power 98FM.
This face to face session simply allows me to see and hear for myself, the sparks between them, their conversation truly captivating and refreshing!
What to expect?
First of it’s kind in Singapore, an ex-couple to host a radio program together. Other than the unorthodox conversation, expect to “meet” the couple in the roles of Bee Geok & Geok Bee, of typical Singaporeans that LOVE good bargains, good food, queueing for great deals and who are well travelled, where you can pick up a tip or two of good lobangs, good food and travelling tips from them! There will be weekly challenges where the 2 Ex-es compete among each other to prove themselves as the better Ex!
When to expect?
Premieres at Power 98FM on 10 June 2013, every Monday – Friday, 5-8pm
Last but not least, here’s a trailer for you to see for yourself, the chemistry between this ex-couple. Will this program trigger the sparks between them to rekindle
