Our hearts were all set on Patty (Angelica Panganiban) and Marlon (Zanjoe Marudo) getting back together no matter what happened or who came along! Their relationship may be going through challenges, but we always hoped and believed that they would find their way back into each other’s arms. That is, until Harold (Carlo Aquino) came along.
Following the success of their movie, “Exes Baggage,” CarGel has made its television reunion and officially invaded Playhouse! Now, we would be lying if we did not say we are torn between the two! As much as we try to choose a side, Marlon and Harold actually share many key similarities.
Marlon has proven that he is more than capable of being a father figure for Robin (JJ Quilantang). Even when he and Patty were going through a rough time because of their annulment, Robin was never caught in the middle. Let us not forget that Marlon is running a successful business, yet he manages to still spend quality time with Robin. There is also Shiela (Kisses Delavin). Although we do not know the full story, Marlon stepped in and took care of her as well.
Meanwhile, Harold is a pediatrician! His career practically requires him to be loved by children. We have seen how much his patients adore him and even the hospital’s staffs have fallen for his charms. This should be enough proof that he is just as great with children.
Knights in shining armor
We all know how Marlon came into Patty’s life. He did not plan on it, but he ended up wooing her while trying to help her move on from a previous relationship. They ate porridge and revisited three memorable places to make new memories together. It was not exactly love at first sight, but it only took them that one night to fall in love.
Later on, as Marlon and Patty’s relationship fell apart, it was Harold’s turn to swoop in and be a shoulder to cry on. He did not even know her yet, but that did not stop him from rushing into the pouring rain. He was persistent on contacting her and making sure she was okay. More importantly, he has proven to be someone dependable on many occasions. For example, when he helped her escape from that dreadful date!
Off set chemistry
The kilig keeps on going, even when the cameras are turned off. CarGel goes way back to the 90s which is why many find their reunion nostalgic. But the best part about them is how they never seem to have lost the spark that started decades ago. It must be true that love is sweeter the second time around.
Don’t count out Zanjoe just yet! Their posts on Instagram is making us feel just as excited. There was one photo of Zanjoe staring at Angelica that was captioned, “Nakakamangha?” With their chemistry, it is easy enough to imagine that they are a couple in real life.
The final verdict
Who is the winner? Angelica Panganiban! We can’t choose between these two gorgeous men. So, we will let you decide for yourselves. Check out this gallery and let us all highkey wish that we were Angelica.
