It was a ‘gold’ evening on Gandang Gabi Vice as the Unkabogable Star welcomed the Gold Squad members Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz and Kyle Echarri on its July 28 episode.
The Gold Squad opened the show with a short skit portraying their roles in Kadenang Ginto. After the intense scene between Marga and Cassie, Vice sat down with the four of the hottest teens today to get to know them better. Vice was very much in awe of Francine’s beauty, “Ngayon lang kita natitigan nang matagal. Ang ganda ganda pala ng mukha mo.”
The Phenomenal Box Office Star also tried to fish some details about the real score between KyCine and SethDrea. Kyle admitted that although that there is nothing transpiring between him and Francine, he gets carried away with their scenes together in the hit afternoon series. As for Francine, she stated that she does love Kyle as a friend and nothing more but said that she still is unsure if she’ll feel any different in the future. Vice asked Andrea, “Hindi ka ba pinopormahan nitong ni Seth?” Seth confessed that he has a crush on Andrea, and said that she is the type of girl that he would court.
Vice spoke to Andrea about all the characters and teleseryes that she has done and asked if Marga is the one that she favors the most. Andrea responded by saying that Marga is her favorite so far, because of her diverse persona of being a conniving kontrabida, but still has a heart. She elaborated that the reason why Marga despises Cassie so much is because she believes that she stole everything from her.
On another note, they also tackled the importance of education, and Vice was pleased to hear that all of them are prioritizing their studies. Francine is a 9th grader at the Marvelous Faith Academy in Cavite while Kyle is homeschooled and going on his 11th year, and Andrea is a student at the UST Angelicum College in Quezon City. Although Seth revealed that he is still trying to fix some stuff regarding his schooling but clarified that he is still keen on continuing his education.
Kyle gave his two cents about learning and emphasized that showbiz will eventually come to an end someday, that is why it is imperative to prioritize education. Seth agreed and reiterated that it is anyone’s dream to graduate and have a diploma. Vice also lauded Kyle for being homeschooled and stressed the relevance of education by saying “Okay din naman ‘yung kahit hindi ka pumupunta sa regular school dahil ipinipilit mo pa rin na hindi huminto. Kaya ang homeschool ay bongga pa rin. Ang mahalaga nag-aaral ka.”
Another guest who visited the show was Marjorry ‘Majo’ Lingat, a.k.a ‘You Do Note’ girl, who is an avid fan of Kadenang Ginto. Videos of her impersonating the teleseryes’s characters have circulated on social media, and now Vice was just as impressed as all of the netizens. After her viral video was shown on screen, Majo came on stage to join the gang. She was then tasked to act with Andrea then with Francine and channel her inner Marga and Cassie. She showcased her talent in acting and was applauded by the GGV audience as she uttered the lines, “You do note the liar Is my peyk.”
At the later part of the show, the Gold Squad along with Brenda and Negi were made to do the Rap Battle Challenge. The two girls and Negi try to beat the two boys and Brenda. The game started off with Kyle composing something for Cassie which went, “Alam mo Cassie, bagay na bagay ang pangalan mo, ang ganda-ganda mo kasi..” He carried on with another phrase, and so did Francine when it was her turn. Francine struggled a bit with her portion, and had a hard time keeping up with the beat. But she was able to push through it with a unique piece saying, “Napag uusapan naman ang weather. Kapag ganitong panahon, pagdating sa’yo ako’y nagiging sweeter.” After that, her next performance was just as impressive as her last one. Brenda and Negi gave it a go, but theirs left audiences and Vice confused because it didn’t even rhyme. Then it was Seth and Andrea’s turn. Among all the lines of Seth’s, the most remarkable would be, “Nung una kitang makita, puso ko’y nabihag na” while Andrea’s gave it a try and said, “’Wag kang mainip sa love life. Dadating din ‘yan. Hintayin mo lang ako.”
