Is the show "How are you like me" more for children or for parents?
Show for both. For children it is Disneyland, a holiday with attractions, jokes, contests, sweets and gifts. For adults, this is a way to return to childhood themselves. And the most valuable thing in the program is the opportunity for parents and children to spend an unforgettable time together.
Should we wait for your son Plato to appear on one of the broadcasts?
I think not, you shouldn't wait for this. There are other worthy children in the world.
You call yourself the new TV dad. What kind of dad are you in real life?
I think I'm a good father.
What advice would you give dads?
Giving advice is a pointless and ungrateful thing, especially if it is not asked for. My personal rule is to always remember that until quite recently I myself was a child, by the way, I remember this well, and do not expect adult actions from my child. Just accept him unconditionally, let him be himself and enjoy his childhood.

Do you want your child to follow in your footsteps?
I would like my child to go his own way. I found it and went. Only this, I believe, will make him happy. So I devoted my entire childhood, from six to 12 years old, to sports, played tennis. And, of course, I am now trying to convey to my son my love for this game. And while he likes her, he enjoys training with me. But if he says no, I will not continue it, I think it would be a mistake to force him. Let him find what he truly loves, but I will try to help.
What reality show would you like to participate in?
Reality? In the culinary. Where you can cook and eat right away.
How do you feel before filming after so many years of working on television - is there any excitement?
There is excitement. It is not at all like the excitement of the first years, when you can neither eat nor drink - you just walk dumbfounded from corner to corner, giggle silly and learn the script. Now this is a very pleasant excitement. The main lesson I learned is that you don't have to try. It's always better that way.
With whom of the Russian TV presenters would you like to co-host a TV show?
To be honest with anyone. I feel very good on my own.
"You are like me" is a really kind and funny family show with the host Dmitry Shepelev. For the first time, stars will appear in the studio of the program with their children - rapper Basta, actor Anton Bogdanov, comedian Ilya Sobolev. You can watch the rivalry between famous parents and children on Fridays, at 19:00, on TNT.
