He had to name 10 leading ladies he has worked with in five seconds but ran out of time and failed. As a consequence, he had to remove two items of clothing. “Ang aga-aga pa ng episode magtatanggal na ko agad,” he teased. This was only the first challenge for Jake Cuenca in this Out of the Box Challenge!
When asked to give five words that rhymed with “mulat” in five seconds, he only came up with two. So, he was dared to not blink for 60 seconds. He easily succeeded with this one because apparently not blinking is a must-have skill for actors. “’Pag-umaarte kami tapos nakatingin ka sa leading lady mo, hindi ka pwede pumikit. At ‘pag-umiiyak, hindi ka pwede pumikit, ‘yung mukha kang nagpapaluha,” he explained.
Between Villa Estrella from the movie “Villa Estrella” and Sta. Lucia Academy from “Eerie”, Jake would rather be quarantined in the latter. The 2019 horror starring Bea Alonzo and Charo Santos-Concio is scarier, but the location in real life is not at all scary.
The Kapamilya actor also revealed that he does not regret doing anything in the name of love. “Hindi ka dapat manghinayang doon because you’re doing it for love,” he added. Admittedly, however, he has made some embarrassing decisions. When he was a younger, he would wait on set for an actress he was courting. One time he waited for 12 hours straight. “’Yung nakakahiya doon ay alam naman ng buong set na nandoon ka lang sa kotse, naghihintay,” he said.
“Bok, walang talo-talo,” was one of David Garcia Jr.’s lines from Tayong Dalawa . For this challenge, Jake had to reenact it in a cute, angry, then emotional way. He also had to name three members of the Cover Boys, among other dares.
