It’s Showtime’s Miss Q & A Intertalaktic 2019 is shaping up to be one of our favorite romantic comedies!
Previously on the beauty pageant, it was all about Vice Ganda and Ate Girl Jackque Gonzaga. Every moment of their love story was filled with kilig and laughter. The novelty of seeing the Unkabogable Star act like a man who has fallen for a woman was what made their tandem even more exciting to watch. When Miss Q & A’s second season came around, happily ever after should have been smooth sailing at this point. You can still hear the madlang people cheer whenever Ate Girl and her fishbowl would come up on stage. The chemistry has not changed. But we might have thought too soon.
Kuya Escort was initially just the guy who would escort out the contestants off the stage. That is until Greg Hawkins took on the role. With his charming smile and quirky accent, he quickly stole Vice Ganda’s attention. Finding comfort in the spotlight, it turned out that he has been part of the industry for a while. He has used to attend workshops, then moved on to modeling and at one point was even featured in a local newspaper article in Cebu.
ViceJack seemed to be on the rocks after Greg came into the picture. Lucky for Ate Girl, it turns out that fate was on her side. In one episode, Vice Ganda revealed through a joke that Greg is missing out on the show because of paperwork. Even during his absence, however, Jackie cannot let her guard down.
A number of Kuya Escorts came and left as a replacement, but one managed to stick around. Compared to his predecessor, Ion Perez had a dreamy boy next door swag with a hint of being a bad boy. Although they do share a quirky voice. Unlike the Filipino-American however, Ion was initially reluctant to enter show business. His friends and family had to convince him for years, before finally deciding to join Mister Universe Tourism 2018 to help his family. Fun fact: he won and is the reigning titleholder of the said contest.
Two Kuya Escorts and we all have a preference. At the end of the day, it is all about who Vice Ganda chooses. But don’t count out Ate Girl yet. She has proven her love for the host and will surely fight as long as she can.
