Let's talk about your name, Jeffrey. That's a guy's name. Why is it that really hot women we know have guy names?
Ha ha ha! I guess nagkataon lang na women with boy's names consciously try to look hot para ma-compensate or labanan yung name nila.
Did your parents think you were coming out a boy?
Kasi were four girls in the family. I'm the third. Before I was born, my dad was expecting a baby boy or at least someone whi would be named after him. Eh nung lumabas ako, girl, they kind of got disappointed kasi walang junior. Of course, every dad naman wants someone to be named after him. They continued na lang with Jeffrey tapos in-add na lang yung name niya.
Good thing you're not named Junjun!
Oo pero lagi kong jino-joke yung friends ko na I'm Jeffrey Jr., Ha ha!
In Survivor you were tagged as the Girl-Next-Door. How much of a girl-next-door are you?
I'm your usual kabarkada. I'm approachable. If you need anything, you can knock on my door and I'll help you. Or pag hindi ko kay, I will do everything para matulungan kita. I'm always game. Hindi ako yung tipo na namimili kung saan pupunta, kung sino kasama.
Just curious,: Is sex really impossible to pull off in a reality show like Survivor?
You know what? Iniisip ko rin yun. Actually, lahat kaming girls, we asked the guys kung naho=horny sila. Ang sagot naman nila hindi, kasi walang food, wala lahat. Walang energy for that. Siyempre kailangan namin tanungin yun kasi sa kanila nanggagaling yung flirting. Kung wala silang napi-feel na ganun, how are we girls to respond? I think it's not possible kapag wala kang kinakain at kapag stressed ka. But if it's not a game -say, were just out with your frineds abd nag-Survivor type gimmick kami sa isang isla, yes, it's possible kasi very inviting to be in an ocean, to be in a jungle and then lahat kayo wearing swimsuits.
But you bothered to ask the guys, which means you could be getting horny.
[pauses] Oh my, I can't believe I paused! Ha ha! Siyempre mayroon akong thoughts of getting intimate with a guy. But having sex with a guy, I cant because may cameras, and you know, kadiri. But yes, I did have thoughts.
