KChat Maris Anthony Tic-Tac-Toe

What makes Maris Racal and Anthony Jennings, also known as MaThon or SnoRene from “Can't Buy Me Love,” so irresistible is their innate wit and charm. Their spontaneity, humor, and playful antics never fail to captivate us. And in a recent “Tic-Tac-Toe with a Twist” Challenge on Kapamilya Chat, we got an even closer look at their delightful personalities. 

Imagine your typical tic-tac-toe game, but with a twist – each move comes with a juicy question. Anthony got the ball rolling, picking a spot on the tic-tac-toe board that came with a question about his love language. He said he’s all about give and take when it comes to relationships. 

Still as part of the game, he also thought of the perfect gift for Maris’ character, Irene Tiu, which is an electric fan to beat the summer heat. Doesn’t it show how considerate he can be? 

Asked the perfect date destination, he thought the scorching summer heat in the Philippines would be a hassle, so he’d rather go to Japan for its cooler weather. 

Was there ever a time he lied to Maris? He confidently affirmed that he hadn't. He values honesty, a quality that Maris can attest to. They’re genuine towards each other, and it likely adds magic to their on-screen chemistry. 

Maris picked some interesting questions, too, such as what she admires most about Anthony, to which she revealed his teeth. If she were a dentist, she'd be particularly fond of his smile, as teeth are the first feature she notices in a person.

One thing you'd like to do together? Maris thought it’d be nice to attend acting workshops because she's always focused on work and her next roles. Even in hypothetical scenarios like the end of the world, their responses were both funny and endearing. Maris shared that if this were the last day of the world, she’d tell Anthony, 'You are a sweet soul.'" Meanwhile, Anthony's only concern would be making sure they're not hungry in case of whatever comes next. 

What qualities does Maris admire and dislike most about Anthony? Well, she appreciates his collaborative nature and willingness to try new things. Unlike some co-actors who might make her feel uneasy, she feels at ease working with Anthony, especially in specific scenes. She feels comfortable enough to provide constructive feedback, like suggesting he slow down his speech to allow for more emotional delivery of their lines.

On the flip side, Anthony admires Maris' generosity. She was surprise hearing this compliment, given that most of her friends teasingly label her as 'kuripot' or stingy. 

And because Anthony is honest, he’s not scared to point out when Maris might be acting a bit 'maarte' in real life, beyond just her character Irene Tiu in "Can't Buy Me Love." 

These two can be so random that when prompted about any question they’d like to ask each other, they went for the unexpected. Read: “Paano ka matulog?” “Ano’ng kulay ng toothbrush mo?” 

So natural, you two, Maris and Anthony!
