Aside from knowing the latest news about the current happenings in our country and the world, as well as even the newest trends and interesting stuff in various fields, another reason why we – perhaps – watch TV Patrol every night is for us to also find out the latest ganaps in the entertainment scene.
However, there are instances when it’s some of our Kapamilya stars who are the ones that deliver the entertainment features as they take on the epic gig of becoming the primetime news program’s celebrity guest Star Patrollers. Through the years, there had already been several stars who filled in the position of Gretchen Fullido for an episode, with Christian Bables being the first-ever male celebrity to do so.
As we look forward on who are going to be the next guest Star Patrollers this year, let’s find out who among our favorite Kapamilya celebrities accepted this nerve-wracking yet fulfilling feat last 2022 via this feature!
Let us start off with Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10 alumna and PIE Channel jock Karen Bordador, who became a Star Patroller in May 2022. From being the content of the news many years ago, she went on to become the deliverer of the news, but about showbiz.
She gleefully imparted the unforgettable experience on Instagram and in one of her vlogs. She wrote a statement on her vlog that read: “This happens only once in a lifetime…Noon laman ng nagbabagang balita, ngayon naghahatid na ng balita. Poetic justice! It’s a miracle story unfolding. This week, I started my first TV talk show and now, I grace the big news room that I’ve been watching since I was a kid. Miraculous! The world is truly round.”
In line with the much-awaited premiere of Mars Ravelo’s Darna in August 2022, its lead stars Jane de Leon and Janella Salvador, a.k.a. this generation’s Darna and Valentina, respectively, accepted the mission of becoming celebrity patrollers, too. And they both nailed their gigs, just like how they did it in their roles.
Their co-star Kira Balinger, who played the role of feisty warrior Luna from the Planet Marte also had the chance to show off her potential as a newscaster when she became a Star Patroller in November. Seasoned broadcast journalist Bernadette Sembrano gave us glimpses of the behind-the-scene happenings in one of her vlogs.
Aside from bagging the lead role in the monumental finale episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya, fast-rising versatile actress Kaila Estrada was also able to make another dream come true when she became a celebrity Star Patroller also in November. Of course, she didn’t miss to mark that momentous feat by posting about it on IG and wrote: “It was an absolute pleasure to be your star patroller tonight! Thank you, TV Patrol! It felt like a dream.”
Who are the Kapamilya stars you wish to see as the next celebrity Star Patroller of TV Patrol, Kapamilya?
