Klarisse gets candid about her ‘firsts and lasts’ on Kapamilya Chat

Klarisse de Guzman took a quick break from her preparations for her first major solo concert to play Kapamilya Chat’s “First and Last” Challenge

Aside from her vocal prowess, Klarisse won the hearts of many with her inspiring story as a seasoned ‘kontesera’-turned-mainstream OPM artist. The Soul Diva shared that she’s been a fan of Kapamilya shows since childhood influenced by her mom, who is so invested in Pinoy teleseryes.

Then, The Voice of the Philippines happened and she was able to travel to the USA, her first overseas trip, after making it to the contest’s Top 4. She used her first talent fee from The Voice PH to take her family out to eat, which she considers one of their simple joys. After The Voice PH, she landed her first TV performance as a bonafide OPM artist via ASAP Natin ‘To, “Very lucky din kami na after The Voice, na-absorb din ako ng ASAP. ‘Di ba, hindi naman lahat nabibigyan ng ganu’ng chance?”

Klarisse revealed that she got the cooking skills from her father, who was formerly a chef. And the first recipe she mastered was sinigang na baboy.

The first KDrama she got addicted to was “Full House” starring Rain and Song Hye Kyo. Lately, she’s been so hooked to “Hello, Bye, Mama.”

Klarisse’s go-to songs in her playlist are old songs such as from The Beatles and Chicago.

Her first celebrity crush is Sam Milby, who she described as “ang gwapo-gwapo at ang bait pa.” Sam is aware of this and he even makes jokes about it whenever they bump into each other in ASAP Natin ‘To.
