StarStruck Live Chat (umm, Jewel, WHERE ARE YOU??)
Here is my Own coverage of the Starstruck “Struckhaton” night. Armed with my own account over at “igma.tv”. I logged in the chatroom at 6Pm and there were 16 people eagerly waiting for the Danger 8 to go online, then at around 7:55 PM. There was Streaming video from the studio where they are situated and then i saw the boys infront of the PC but where are the Girls and the boys in our chatroom? Yun pala, they are in a separate place. Kaming mga chatters na 6Pm pa naka-login ay chatroom lang namin iyon and in order to “talk” to them, you go though a web interface and you have to type in your question limited to 160 characters to send, and you have to wait to be answered! ang daming na-dissapoint but the chat-admin told everyone that you can call then via phone, yung mga Girls nandoon sa telepono and i gave it a try.
So i dialed the number and was greeted my a recorded message that i have reached GMA network and i should dial the Local number, so i did dial 7721 and i got a busy message and i tried again with different numbers (from 7721 to 7724) and after 7 to 10 mins, the local 7722 rang and was picked up by one of the boys, whoa! nag-palit na sila at that moment i got connected. I asked kung sino ang kausap ko, then si Aljur pala iyon and here is are my questions and his answers. Now since i don’t have a pen and paper in front of me at that time (and i forgot that i have a computer infront of me!). Hindi complete ang questions and answers, ito lang natandaan ko.
1.) naksd: Any weird Questons raised by other people than me?
Aljur: hehehe, wala naman
2.) naksd: Sino ang gusto mong i-emulate na Ultimate Male Surrvivor if ever nanalo ka?
Aljur: Well, Gusto ko na ako ang gumawa ng sarili kong pangalan
3.) naksd: You mean alone or with a loveteam?
Aljur: Alone, but i will not discount the possibility of a loveteam
4.) naksd: How do you find Jewel?
(Sorry, hindi ko matandaan ang karamihan ng sinabi nya.)
Aljur: mabait sya.
5.) naksd: In the recent weeks, palagi nalang kayong may kissing scenes na dati eh wala sa Previous seasons. Bakit kaya ganoon?
Aljur: Dahil kasi iyan sa merong Ultimate Loveteam, kaya they are showing different loveteams.
I was with him on the line for 4 mins to give way to other people since feel ko na i might be unceremouniously be kicked off the line.
Then balik ako sa Chatroom and i said na nakausap ko sya and told the rest of the chatters na call them. Mas mabilis at personal. The chat-admin backed me up on my endorsement. In the meantime to keep the chatters with company, the chat-admin answered misc questions like kailan ang Final Judgement Night, sabi nya sa March 25 or 26. Pwede ba raw na sa FJ night may chatroom ulit ang fans, sabi nya that they will work on it. Ano daw ang number ng Danger 8, sabi nya hindi nya pwedeng ibigay ang numbers, but you might ask for it on the phone (mukang alam ng chat-admin ang number ng lahat ng taga starstruck.).
Then the chat-admin told us yung girls nasa phone na ulit. So again i dialed the numbers and after 5 mins (on the same local number. 7722), i got Rich on the line (she introduced herself upon answering), now here is my questions and her answers. Again just like in aljurs case, hindi complete and Q&A
1.) naksd: How are you feeling today?
Rich: Umm, kulang sa tulog, galong kami sa mall shows from Bohol, Cebu, Davao then dito nga kauuwi sa maynila, may tapings and pictorials pa kami. Pero masaya
2.) naksd: And alam naman natin ang ending ng pinag-hirapan mo. So, If ever na ikaw ang manalo, sinong Female either From Final 4 or an Avenger na hanga ka and gusto mong gayahin?
Rich: Si Ryza Cenon, dahil rinig ko sa Staff na nag-handle sa kanya na hindi sya mahirap bantayan, ako naman sa sarili ko, hindi lang talent kundi ang ugali ng tao ang importante sa akin.
3.) naksd: So you want to see you not by your talent but your attitide and you are not pasaway?
4.) naksd: For my last question, ano na ang pakiramdam na nakaabot ka na dito, even almost being eliminated pero nakabalik karin?
Well, masaya nga, since marami ngang nag-audition diba then from top 80 nasa Danger 8 na ako. I should be thankful for that.
5.) Rich: At saka hindi naman ako ganoon kagandahan eh, comparing to the others.
naksd: Wait! hold it. Huwag mo iyang sabihin sa akin, isipin mo nalang may K ka sa sarili and tayo ay may individual na kagandahan, bakit ka nanging beauty queen?
Rich: Ah ok. Sige thank you.
I talked to her a bit longer than aljur since im much more “in the know” with the girls than with the boys. And she said to me na hindi nga sya kagandahan. Now, marami tayong actors and actresess na hindi kagandahan but they make “bawi” in talent and manners. Kung may “K” sila, pag-bigyan sila. Di tulad ng isang nanalo sa Batch 3 na girl, maganda nga but where is she? (also yung taga batch 3 na iyon ang promotor ng Computer issue, remember?)
