StarStruck 4, The Final Judgement Night. Reporting from the Marikina Sports Park

Posted in Starstruck Sa 10:30 hapon ni naksd

I was there!

Hindi lahat ng nooks and crannies ng show ay mai-report ko, this is based on my own opinions and the facts that i currently know.

Thanks to somebody i knew. I got tickets to get inside and i noticed that i was at the ground level. The last season i was at the bleachers (yes, i watched it too live. Eh wala pa itong blog na ito.). For a change naman sabi ko sa sarili ko, then a little reality sets in, the place is in a big mess with chairs na pataasan (via “patong-patong” the chairs) para kita ang stage and walang order yung seats, unlike the area in the front of the stage where the relatives and friends sit and special tickets holders which my friend said, which By the way was also there. Dapat raw yung tickets sa harap ang kukunin, umm mali yung nakuha ng “source” nya pala. Naayos rin yung chair issue before the start of the show.

Anyways, the show started past 7:00 PM closer to 8:00 PM and at one point of the first production number, the Final 4 and 10 avengers of the last 3 batches and the 13 avengers of the 4th batch (i did not see that S*m M*lb* look-alike, mukhang ayaw na ng siyete sa kanya!) appeared on stage with different showcases, yung isang batch primarily of Jennylyn and Yasmien sang while the other primarily of Mark, Marky danced. It’s nice to see them all in one stage but sadly i forgot some of their names! Sana pag-nagretire na ang current talents nila, eh lahat sila ay pumalit, and i mean “LAHAT” (except if lumipat or some bad things happened)

After that and the fireworks, which mas mahaba pa yung sa SM Mall of Asia compared that night (i can compare them since i saw a “Starmaker” truck outside the MSP which also supplies the fireworks for MOA.) or even last season. Si Aljur muna ang nag-perform, nag-ala boyband ang performance then si Mart naman na magaling sumayaw (Notice that Mark Herras & Marky Cielo and now Mart Escudero are good dancers and all of them start with an “M”?) then si Prince na kumanta lamang.

After each performances, they gave some numbers on the percentage given to them by some of the council members and the text votes from lowest to higest among the boys and girls, patikim kung sino ang mananalo and a little bit of transparency na rin.

Before the girls turn, yung boys ay nakapareha nila sina Ryza Cenon, Jackie Rice (Last year lang nanalo doon!) and Jennylyn Mercado (Ryza-Jen, same stage, UH-OH!) in a song number of the “official” loveteam song.

Sa girls naman, Si Jewel Mische, Ganda ng suot na damit and sumayaw siya ng maganda, i noticed that the her hair looked nice, daring pa ang suot (pero wala parin sya sa get-up ni Kris!, more of that later). Then Rich sang and danced and she got me! ANG GALING! Akala ko sa una na, meh, mabagal pero noong may maliit na “dress modification” and with the dancers, backups and the lights, ganda. Then si Kris naman, puro buhat!

And the girls ay nakapareha nila sina Mark Herras, Mike Tan (Bihira sya sa TV) and Marky Cielo (runnaway hit sa Starstruck 3!) sa isang dance number.

Let’s take a break for a moment (and ang tagal ng breaks nila doon, daig pa commercials sa TV!) and i wanna talk about the fans. Yung pinaka-bigay sa lahat ay yung mga Mart fans, ang daming “gays” and nakita ko sa inuupuan ko na sila ay nakapasok pa sila sa area na “VIP” while the rest doon sa likod na magulo. Then marami rin ang Jewel fans, followed by the Kris Fans, the Prince fans, the rich fans and lastly the Aljur fans.

Then palipat-lipat ako ng pwesto sa MSP, minsan sa bleachers, minsan sa Rehas separating that coveted(?) area, most of the time, nakatingin nalang kami sa video front projector, the same video that you will see on TV sets only walang commercials. It’s kinda surreal that you are like watching a TV show then lingon ka lang and there they are, hirap nga lang makita unlike last season na malapit me and my companions sa stage.

Balik tayo sa show, yung mga avengers, in the tradition of the production numbers for them, nag-musical sila sa pag-kakatangal nila and nakakatuwa syang panoorin. Stef, Jean, Lizzy. Sana sila ay pwede sa pwesto ni Kris.

Then merong production number sina Jolina and the runners-up ng previous batches (Rainier-Yasmien-CJ-LJ-Gian-Iwa), i will skip my review and may Sexbomb VS Starstruck showdown pa! Bigay sina Prince at sina Jesi sa Taktakan!

Special awards goes to Jesi for the “Taktak award”, Stef for Most dramatic Exit (iyak and dissapointed talaga sya noong avenger nalang siya eh), nakalimutan ko kung sino ang dalawa pang nanalo ng dalawa pang awards.

Since it getting very late at night and im hungry, hindi ko na tinapos yung show at the MSP and went home and catched up on TV, then yung sumunod sa Sexbomb na production number ay si Regine Velaquez and the Survivor 6 na naka formal attire na sila at signal na ito na susunod na ang announcement ng nanalo, just like in the previous batches.

The winners are:

Jewel Mische – Ultimate Sweetheart.
Aljur Abrenica – Ultimate Hunk.

(and get this!)

Mart Escudero and Kris Bernal – Ultimate Loveteam!

What! Naku, kung Ultimate male and female lang, eh sina Aljur and Jewel nalang and just ignore the loveteam even if meron! But an award is an award and let’s accept it.

And the 1st “prince” is Prince (haha, coincidence?) and 1st princess lang si Rich, boto ng tao lang siya talo.

Now i wish them all na ayusin naman nila ang work, huwag magaya yung mga bad happenings sa last batches. si Mart, huwag nang kumuha ng video sa mga CR or Dressing rooms.

And that’s it for My “Starstruck: The Next Level” Blog coverage, i thank all the people who have read the news and my opinions on this site. thank goodness i did not have any trouble at the comments and let’s all watch them in their respective projects.

Ano na kaya ang next na pag-uuspan ko that is like a series like this? im not interested in blogging PBB 2 anymore, there are better and more passionate bloggers out there on that subject.

Starstruck, the informal “Quick-Count”

Posted in Starstruck Sa 8:25 hapon ni naksd

Well, i have posted links to vote for wither Jewel Micshe or Rich Asuncion. Since i can watch the “clicks”, here is the results of the voting from March 18 up to this post , THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL COUNT BY ANY MEANS!

Jewel=30
Rich=9

Now the results are not conclusive since i did not place Kris Bernal or the other Boys (Actually, i have hid a link to Kris Bernal’s Vote page).

Alright then, abangan bukas!

Starstruck, PAHABOL NI Mart!

Posted in Starstruck Sa 11:29 hapon ni naksd

Naku, sa teaser, may ma-disqualify raw (late in the game, no way!)

Then it turns out na si Mart pala ang pertaining to that DQ thingy, but bawas iskor lang sya sa council (like ZERO na sya, hahaha, joke!)

ano ginawa nya, kinunan nya yung isa sa staff ng starstruck na nasa CR or dressing room and then kumalat ito.  First, he denied doing it pero in the end, inamin rin and what a bad boy!

Nakakahiya!

Starstruck, Final Deliberation from the council (?)

Posted in Starstruck Sa 2:38 umaga ni naksd

I think this Thursdays episode was the final “formal” episode and this friday, baka practice lang sa Final Judgement night this sunday, mukhang 10:30 AM yata ang pasok and you stay there or have some mark in your wrist, sana hiwalay ang pasok and kasama ko ang iba pang kaibigan ko or else i will settle for the TV nalang even though i get the tickets which by the way dapat friday (ngayon as im posting this) pero hindi parin ako contact nya so its still up in the air and i don’t want to be in a part of some party game style of ticket distribution also on friday (alam nyo na iyon!)

Believe it or not, i did not absorb the info from the show itself! So before sunday, baka mag-post nalang ako ng balik tanaw ng previous seasons, i have it on paper already.

And my choices of the winners as seen in my sidebar are set in stone and wala nang kokontra ha!

Mga pahabol:

1.)  I have posted a comment on Jewel’s Blog!

2.)  I have been lurking on the Starstruck 4 thread over at pinoyexchange.com and Oh dear, Democracy at its finest!  I still believe in other people’s opinion (after learning it the HARD way) but i was hurt by some of the comments, makikita din doon yung personality ng mga taga-hanga ng isang actor/actress eh, hitlist ko ngayon yung mga maka-Kris Bernal which sila ang pinaka-“makasira”, then yung mga maka-jewel eh positive thinkers and the Rich fans, umm where are they.  Now its only the tip of the iceburg and its not conclusive.

And i agree with one post there that we might see a repeat of Jackie Rice (although, i do see her on TV recently on “Princess Charming” and i like how she looks 🙂 ) sana hindi na ganoon ang case and parang season 1 na ulit ang popularity!

Starstruck, Geez! Get over the “loveteams”! Alam ko na iyan! & Mga Adik sa Comment spam!

Posted in Computer, Starstruck Sa 8:13 hapon ni naksd

A little late (since no internet card!), but better than never on the latest sa Starstruck.

Again, i want to see them shine in thier own light and grabe iyan “loveteams” na iyan and iyang kris na iyan……..i don’t like her, cute nga pero feel ko na ginagamit na nya si Aljur & Mart (same goes to Aljur & Mark taking advantage of Kris). Guess what? Smart itong blogger na ito and hindi nyo ako ma-convince na ultimate loveteam na kayo dyan!

Ligawan na yata sila dyan eh, I-disqualify nyo na nga sila since may no courting rule sila as long as they are in the competition!

I really feel na kasing init ito ng batch 1. Ano kaya ang kalalabasan ng Batch 4? Meron kayang Mark Herras-(yung babae na iyon) in real life kinda thing?

Or lets even push it further and may “Mang-yari” kay kris na malaki ang effect sa buhay nya dahil sa mga lalakeng iyan!

Basta, i like Rich or Jewel!

And then after not posting entried for a while, i was greeted with this:

Yipes if they appeared on the blogsite!

Starstruck, the last week at the broadway (Hello Marikina!) & PBB 2. Yung latest opinions

Posted in Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, Starstruck Sa 1:39 umaga ni naksd

So, hindi na final 4 kundi Survivor 6 na sila and kanina. Im quite angry with the avengers since majority of them don’t belive in Jewel’s position to be there, Gusto nila si Stef! Anyways, individual opinions lang naman and may bearing ba sila sa final scores?

And, ang ganda ng appeal ni Jewel at lalo na kay Rich sa katulad natin on why we should vote for them.

Anyways, since this is the last week, i will make some additions to the blogsite. I will add on the widgets area my picks for Ultimate Sweetheart, Ultimate Hunk and Ultimate Loveteam. And direct vote links to them.

Sinu-sino kaya ang manonood ng Live sa Marikina? I may not watch it even though i know somebody who will give me some tickets (and don’t ask me those tickets!) because of GMA’s idea of SOP and S-files to be also held there on that day, i go to my church on sunday mornings, cannot do an override of schedule and baka yung lang ang chance mong makapasok, unless hiwalay ang pasok ng mga gusto lang manood ng Starstruck.

In PBB news, natangal na ang “Bold Star” at yung na-hapon na Anime dubber. Tsaka itong si Gee-Ann gustong sanang mag voluntary exit. Buti hindi natuloy kundi mababawasan ako ng “eye-candy”

And your nominees for eviction for this week are:

Kian: I find him loud but i would not evict him.

Gee-Ann: I will not evict her!

Beatriz: If i were a housemate, i would not nominate her. Because she is an asset in the house. Pero sa viewers perspective ko, Get her out of house!

Jasmin: Sila na bahala sa kanya, hindi ko alam kung palalayasin ko sya or what.

PBB 2, Ay Naku PO! StarStruck, “RoomRaiders” Special Report & Iloilo trip

Posted in Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, Starstruck Sa 1:11 umaga ni naksd

Last Thursday, Dionne is Pushed to the limit, dahil at one point si Kuya ay inutusan sila na mag-dala ng supplies sa 4 nating isolated (na may sarili kung problem, more on that later). Si Dionne eh mapapamura (Which By the way hindi nai-edit out ng DOS) and napaiyak na.

And itong si Nel, at one point bumigay! IMHO

Did not watch friday’s episode since nag-conflict sa Starstruck and i anyways, its easy to catch up.

Sa starstruck naman eh yung mga boys and girls nag-ala “Room Raiders”. And Particular na napagtripan eh yung Gamit ng mga girls. Lahat sila may Shavers, Tanong ng boys, bakit kailangan ng Girls ang shavers (sa places i wont mention in this blog!). Also yung Underwear ni Jewel eh napagtripan din, Tanong naman ng boys bakit “exotic” raw yung Undies ni Jewel, sagot naman ni Jewel eh hindi sya ang nag-ayos ng mga gamit nya, ano iyon, sabotahe? (hehehe)

In any event, si Kris eh Pinakita muna ang kanyang classmates sa isang paaralan (cannot remember the name) and ginamit pala sya sa brochure para ipromote ang iskwelahan nya. Experience!

Hey, do you want Kris Bernal out of the competition and Jewel VS Rich nalang tayo? Para in any case ang manalo is either “J” or “R”. If Jewel Wins, 3 “J”‘s na tayo but if Rich wins, Then we have a symmetry of 2 “J”‘s and 2 “R”‘s! Saka gawin na nating 4 “M”‘s yung mga boys para masaya!

Sa Iloilo naman, in the case of Prince, i think that is her mom na hindi ipinakita ang face on-air. What is this, Gian?

In any case, Ito namang Aljur-Kris-Mart “Triangle” is nutz and i want to see them shine and be recognized in their own right.

PBB 2, Si Kuya talaga pinapahirapan sila. Starstruck, Cont of the provincial mall tour.

Posted in Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, Starstruck Sa 12:17 umaga ni naksd

Kanina sa PBB, ipinakita ang talents nila in the tune of “Pinoy Ako”.  But ang stage nila ay sa gitna ng swimming pool at ayun, lahat nabasa!  Si Nel, BAKLA!  Si Saicy, MTRCB (hehehe).  I Noticed na si Jasmin is feeling much better now based sa pakikisama nya.

Speaking of pakikisama, yung ilan sa mga housemates (forgot who were the specifics since i don’t have my notes with me, “Kailangan pa ba non?”) ay hindi nakisama sa rules ni kuya like no lapel mics while talking (teka, may mics naman sa buong house ah?), mouthing of words (Franzen and Cass noong season 1, correct me if im wrong) and kwentong outside the house like news and happenings from the newer housemates, i dont know if pwede nilang pagusapan yung mga bagay na in the news before sila pumasok, basta walang updates.

Iyan, wala pang parusa si kuya sa mga pasaway, for now.

Then kawawa parin yung apat na isolated (for now din), Si Dionne at si Ezekiel are still doing the job right although si Dionne eh pilit-gisng sya sa mornings and the other housemates eh duda na,  PAPALPAK SILA SA SPECIAL MISSION NA ITO!

And let’s focus naman sa apat na kawawa in isolation.  Yung Galing Japan, eh pinagbibintangang “Bakla” from the “Bold Star” (big T**s).  Hindi naman sya Bakla, si NEL iyon!

And ang cute ng aso.

Sige Starstruck naman tayo.

Nag-mall show sila sa dalawang provinces in Luzon (one is Dagupan, nakalimutan ko yung isa.) and mas-konti ang crowd since mas-maliit ang malls na ginamit nila.

Si Jewel po ay hindi Socialite at Mataray or Snobby, dahil ba sa “Socialite” looks nya?

Si Aljur naman, pilit pang tawagin ang Ex-GF nya on-cam pero hiya talaga yung Ex na iyan.  May itsura rin yung Ex-GF nya!

PBB, Tinamad po ako. Starstruck: Stef (OHMIGOSH!) and Paulo Eliminated, Its gets interesting & Election Related News

Posted in COMELEC, Eleksyon 2007, News, Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, Starstruck Sa 12:51 umaga ni naksd

Sorry if no updates sa PBB season 2 even sa Post na ito.  Tinamad lang po akong manood.

Sa Starstruck naman, last sunday, si Stef and si (paulo) ay eliminated na sa Danger 8 and ngayon Survivor 6 na ang tawag sa mga natitira.  Meron pa bang Final 4?

Anyways, i predicted that Stef or Rich ang delikadong matangal sa Girls but after talking to Rich Personally over the phone last friday, i also gave her my nod of approval and gusto ko si Rich ay “mag-tagal”, tangalin nalang natin si kris, ok lang ba?  My mom would be happy since hate nya si Kris.

Sa performances nila, yung mga boys na kumanta especially aljur, huli kong nag-lipsync!  Dati Live na Live sila with mistakes pa nga eh, then now lipsync na sila?  Not a good idea!

Sa mga girls, si Jewel, sumayaw sya sa isang Michael Jackson Song.  She cycled na kamukha nya si LJ Reyes, KC Concepcion, Ryza Cenon at isa pang local actress in certain angles (weird)  pero after removing her hat, she’s uniquely Jewel (NAKS!, actually that word was the basis for my screename and the url that this blog points to).  Si Kris naman, are you seducing the audience?  Nagkamali pa nga si Kris or yung male dance partner nya noong nahulog sa isang formation ng dance and nakalumutan ko kung ano ang performance ni Rich.

This night, pinalabas ang Bohol Provincial tour which balwarte ni Rich and ang daming people and i feel based on collective mall show footage na itong season na ito, kasing init ng Batch 1.

And may Solid date and place na ang Final Judgement night.  March 25, 2007 @ the Marikina Sports Complex.  Nood kaya ako ng live that night?

In Election related News, March ay Fire Prevention month and what a way to demonstrate the importance of fire prevention than the Old COMELEC bldg going up in flames!  Nakita ko kanina sa dyaryo and OH DEAR!  Are they covering up the evidence of election fraud (since doon pala nakatago ang records ng 2004 presidential elections, hummm!)?  Sige, sana may Backups sila.

Mayor Vilma Santos, running for Governor sa Batangas.  ANG SAYA NG MAGIGING RESULT!

StarStruck Live Chat (umm, Jewel, WHERE ARE YOU??)

Posted in Starstruck Sa 8:00 hapon ni naksd

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?

Rich: opo

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?)

Susunod na Pahina
