Bianca Peralta - March 2012
We think she'd do well as: an actress whose forte is playing sexy kontrabida roles.
We noticed how comfortable you are without clothes on. But that shouldn’t mean you have anything against swimsuits, right?
Ha ha! I love swimsuits, but whether I like to wear them or not depends on my figure. Pag feeling ko payat ako, I’m more confident. I really like the ones I wore for this shoot.
And where can we spot you wearing similar attire this summer?
I don’t have definite plans yet. But I always go to Coron, Palawan, and Boracay. Sometimes I also go to Puerto Galera with my gay friends. I have gay friends, girl friends, and have had girlfriends. Yes, I’m bi. But I’m more into femme-femme relationships.
Cool. And how are you as a girlfriend when you have a boyfriend?
I used to be a martyr. When I loved someone I’d give my 100 percent. But then I realized na dapat 30 percent lang yung sa love, 70 percent para sa sarili ko.
Erika Bacani - October 2011
We think she'd do well as: a soul princess who regularly appears on A.S.A.P. or Party Pilipinas
We were staring long and hard the entire time to look for inked evidence, but found none. In case they happen to be located in regions concealed from us, may we just ask: Do you have tattoos?
Ha ha! I have none. But back when I was in college I always wanted to get one, maybe on my ribcage or my nape. I always wanted to get a Latin quote.
How would you describe yourself?
Most people’s fi rst impression of me is that I’m mataray, that I’m wild and that I’m a party girl—which I’m not! I’m really a homebody and I’ve been told I’m mild-mannered and approachable.
Why do you think people get that impression then?
I guess because most of my friends are clubbers and partygoers, so maybe by association that’s how people get that impression of me. I seldom go to clubs and actually enjoy steady drinking and having a good conversation more than partying.
Monica Mendoza - February 2012
We think she'd do well as: a radio jock working alongside Andi Manzano and Jessica Mendoza
How did you start modeling?
I just posted pictures on my Facebook account.
That really works?
Haha! It did for me!
Were they taken in Paris? Were you wearing designer lingerie? Who took it?
Ha ha! No! They’re actually just your average profile picture. It’s just me wearing this white T-shirt, which I took myself —yes, it was just one picture. I used to attend go-sees but nothing really happened. So I stopped doing that and didn’t think much of modeling anymore. But after creating a Facebook account, things changed. Someone got in touch with me asking me if I wanted to be a model. Of course I did a background check on the guy and even brought my mom with me to meet him. But yes, here I am.
Did you get nervous at all?
Not really. I was actually more conscious of my weight so I went on a diet. I put on pounds rather easily. I like eating all the unhealthy stuff!
Nikki Palma - October 2011
We think she'd do well as: a cast member in a celebrity edition of a reality show
When you’re not modeling, what else do you do?
Ngayon, I’m doing make-up for weddings, debuts, ganun. Depende kung sino gusto magpa-makeup, ha ha. Pinagsasabay ko siya with modeling, kaya minsan ako yung make-up artist, minsan naman ako yung nilalagyan ng make-up. Kaka-graduate ko lang rin kasi nung March, kaya wala pa akong alam na gawin kundi yun. But I really want to be a make-up artist talaga. Gusto ko siya i-pursue, at gusto ko talaga siyang matutunan.
How about you do the make-up for the next shoot?
Oo naman! Gusto ko nga eh! Ha ha. Pero ngayon, kumbaga sa nag-aaral, highschool palang ako as a make-up artist. But I do know na magiging successful na make-up artist ako. Modeling is very important to me, and habang nandyan yung modeling opportunities I’m going to take advantage of it. At the same time, aware ako na yung modeling, hindi siya forever eh. Hindi naman forever na physically maganda ka at may katawan kaya I want to be a successful make-up artist too.
Janna Tiangco - March 2011
We think she'd do well as: a lead dancer in It's Showtime or Eat Bulaga
I don't go out on dates. I prefer to stay home rather than go to malls and watch movies. Yung exes ko ganoon yung ginagawa ko. Usually, tumatambay lang sila sa bahay at dinadalahan na lang nila ako ng roses. I also rarely go out on gimmicks with my girlfriends. When I want to drink, I invite them over or I go to their place.
I’m a bookworm. I love reading trivia books and almanacs. Do you know that the total length of all the veins found in the human body are approximately 60,000 miles and can go around the earth 2 1/2 times? Here's another trivial: A Saudi Arabian woman can file for a divorce if her husband doesn't give her coffee.
Barbie San Miguel - October 2011
We think she'd do well as: a showbiz talk show correspondent
We couldn’t help but notice your beautiful long hair. Pang-shampoo commercial, 'ika nga. When did you last cut your hair?
Last month. Actually hanggang butt ko siya dati pero…ang hirap maligo, ha ha! So I had it cut. For me kasi girl na girl ka pag mahaba ang hair mo, when you walk i-swing-swing mo siya, ha ha!
Are there any other parts of your body that you’re maselan about?
My whole body. I take really long baths. Mga one hour. Thirty minutes nagmamadali na ako noon. First, I apply oil on my skin then nagsasabon ako ng anti-bacterial soap then banlaw. After that whitening soap naman then saka ako mag-scrub ng katawan then sabon ulit.
Kristine Santamena - December 2011
We think she'd do well as: Coco Martin's love interest in an afternoon soap
When you’re not studying, modeling, or in the kitchen, how else do you occupy your time?
Mahilig akong manood ng Korean movies. I don’t really know the names of the stars, but I like Boys Over Flowers and Pure Love. I like watching them kasi mahilig talaga ako sa mga singkit na lalaki. I find them really cute. At pag napapanood ko sila naiiyak talaga ako at sabay kinikilig dahil ang cute nung guys.
Aside from being singkit, how else can a man make you kilig?
Of course he first has to understand my work. Ito ang ginagawa ko para kumita ng pera. I’ve been separated from my family and living independently since I was 16. Ako ang bumubuhay sa sarili ko. Kailangan tunay siyang magmahal at hindi ako lolokohin. He also has to be really smart.
So how should this understanding, faithful, and smart individual actually become your lover?
I like men who don’t pay attention to me, who are just quiet when everyone else is trying to get my attention. I get turned on sa mga patingin-tingin lang. Personality is important as well, kailangan mapagkakatiwalaan. Mahirap na.
