What if tables flipped and you’re given the chance to be in the shoe of a local celebrity, whose life you would you take on? Sounds like the fulfilment of an ultimate dream! We asked your favorite Kapamilya stars the same question and here are the answers!
Andrea Brillantes is literally all of us – wishing to take on the life of Kathryn Bernardo and be adored by legions of fans. She even has a specific day in mind, “Pipiliin kong maging Kathryn for a day ng ABS-CBN Christmas Special kasi sila ‘yung may pinakamaraming posters at fans.”
The Huwag Kang Mangamba star also wants to indulge in the golden life of Sarah Geronimo, for a reason we could all relate to, “Kasi gusto kong maramdaman ng isang araw na maganda ‘yung boses ko. Kakanta lang ako buong araw kapag ako si Sarah G. Bibirit ako buong araw!” She wonders what it’s like to be a ‘Diyosa’ as well, thus wanting to be Anne Curtis.
Frustrated ‘biriteros’ and biriteras’ would of course dream to be the Asia’s Songbird, Regine Velasquez, for a day. Count Robi Domingo in, “Gusto kong maging Asia’s Songbird kasi gusto kong ma-achieve ‘yung boses na sobrang, ‘Wooh!’”
Janine Gutierrez shares the same goal, “Kasi ang iconic ni Songbird at ano kaya ang feeling na ganu’n kaganda ang boses mo?”
If only Kira Balinger can belt out like Regine, all the high notes will be shaking, “Gusto kong ma-experience ‘yung boses. Ay, Diyos ko talaga! If I were her for one day, siguro I will be belting out all the Ariana Grande songs, ‘yung mga Mariah Carey kasi hindi ako mabirit talaga.” Her loveteam partner Grae Fernandez wishes to rock the concert stage ala Bamboo Manalac.
To perform like Gary Valenciano is Donny Pangilinan’s dream while LA Santos admires the talent of Billy Crawford.
Vivoree Esclito was close to turning her fantasy real when she transformed as Sarah Geronimo in Your Face Sounds Familiar. More than the singing, she likes to know the Popstar Royalty’s motivation and thoughts before every performance.
Liza Soberano is the choice for Amy Nobleza, Jayda Avanzado and Shawntel Cruz. More than the goddess-like beauty, they also admire the actress’s good soul. Shawntel recalled how Liza exuded humility when she got to talk to her.
While Zephanie Dimaranan has been busy creating music, she also wishes to explore acting and be as good as Kathryn Bernardo. The life of the Queen of Hearts fascinates Francine Diaz as well, “Kasi ang fresh, fresh niya. Ang ganda-ganda niya at ang galing niyang umarte. Kung pwedeng maging Kathryn Bernardo for one day, G na G ako.”
Charlie Dizon had a taste of Toni Gonzaga’s life when she reprised the latter’s iconic character in “Four Sisters Before the Wedding.” Apart from that, she wonders how it feels like to be a mother to the cutie Seve. Besides Toni’s, she also picks the busy superstar life of Kathryn Bernardo.
Hinting at her yearning for a happy family life, Angelica Panganiban would want to be Judy Ann Santos for a day not for the glamor but for the simple family dynamics. “’Yung buhay pamilya, ‘yung may ganu’n ka-cute, adorable, at talented na mga anak. ‘Pag nakikita mo mga posts nila, sabay-sabay sila nagluluto, nagca-camping sila sa labas ng bahay nila. Sobrang ideal ‘yun para sa akin. Kung magkakaroon ako ng pamilya, ‘yun ang life peg,” said the Walang Hanggang Paalam actress.
Karl Gabriel and JC Santos would want to be in the shoe of John Lloyd Cruz because of his deep artistry. JC shared, “Gusto kong maintindihan kung paano siya mag-isip, kung paano niya dine-deliver ‘yung mga script niya, kung paano niya sino-solve lahat, how he live his life. Gusto kong maging ganu’n ka-sincere.”
Jameson Blake hasn’t met Jake Cuenca yet but he’s heard a lot of good things about him. “I just want to see how he works on his craft.

Vance Larena had a first-hand view of Coco Martin’s busy life as a multi-hyphenate, so he wishes to be him for 24 hours. He knows it would be challenging but he would sure learn a lot.
Sam Milby as Gary Valenciano for a day would be exciting! Joseph Marco would choose the life of a cager since being a professional basketball player is a “frustration na hindi ko naabot.”
For Simon Ibarra, no one can copy the illustrious career of screen legend Eddie Garcia but he takes inspiration from him. He related, “Napakahusay niya at alam naman natin na alamat siya. Alam natin na hindi siya kayang gayahin at walang makakagaya sa kanya dahil nag-iisa siya. Pero mapadikit lang ‘yung pangalan mo sa kanya, para sa akin, achievement na ‘yun.”
With his bad boy appeal, it wouldn’t be that hard for Manuel Chua to be Robin Padilla for a day. “Tingin ko nabuhay siya na parang action star talaga in real life,” he said.
We see how Heart Evangelista slays life in full fashion, class, and glamor. Apart from the stunning fashion sense, Kiara Takahashi loves Heart for her humility. She remembers seeing Heart’s simple, down-to-earth attitude everytime she visits La Union, Kiara’s hometown. Now, she’s more drawn to the actress’ classy ways, “She’s very smart. She knows how to handle everything. Ang dami kong naririning na good things about her. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na maging Heart for a day, di ba?”
Amazed by Maymay Entrata’s undying humility, Lie Reposposa wishes to be the Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 Big Winner.
Dimples Romana is just one of those amused by Mimiyuuuh’s hilarious uploads. She’s so tickled that she wants to be the “LocQ4l j3j3 Gh0rl” for a day. Of course, to be Mimiyuuuh means to give the most entertaining take on the trending “It Really Hurts” Challenge. “I want to be in her shoes tapos mag-‘It Really Hurts’ ako nang cute na cute. Kasi parang ‘pag ginawa ko with Alonzo, cute pero hindi kasin-cute ng kay Mimiyuuuh,” said Dimples.
