After signing with ABS-CBN, Toni quickly became a part of such shows like the Most Requested Show (MRS) with Roderick Paulate and Amy Austria. Of which she says, "masaya katrabaho mga beteranong artista kasi aside sa magaling sila at enjoy kasama marami kang matutunan sa kanila." She is also a part of Entertainment Konek (ETK) with Ogie Diaz, which she enjoys because of the fun environment. As if this girl from Taytay wasn't hot enough, she is also one of the hosts of the new reality show, Pinoy Big Brother. "Natutuwa ako at nagpapasalamat kasi they (Management) considered me at they trusted me na maging part ng malaking show na ito," she says. She shares that the offer to be a part of PBB came before their group went to perform in the US for the US Kapamilya Caravan.

With her numerous hosting jobs & growing career, Toni certainly feels blest. She says she especially enjoys working in Pinoy Big Brother because "masaya kasi at magaan ang ambiance at ang set." When asked about her thoughts on the housemates, she easily says, "Na-meet ko sila personally kasi ako sumundo sa kanila kaya alam ko kung saan sila nakatira at ang atmosphere ng life nila kaya i have no doubts kung bakit sila ganun kumulos sa loob ng bahay, kasi totoong tao sila talaga."

Aside from PBB, Toni enjoys working with people like Vhong Navarro, one of her co-hosts in Wazzup Wazzup. She’s thankful that she has also gotten to work with Ms. Nova Villa, and other co workers in her shows.
