Kapamilya stars Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga showed instant chemistry during the first season of Pinoy Big Brother in 2005 where the former entered Bahay ni Kuya as a housemate while the latter served as the program’s host. This on-screen spark has ignited the loud clamor for a team-up which landed them into a series of mainstream movies not long after.
They have been into a total of five films before, all of which are weaved into a romantic-comedy genre. Of all the big screen appearances they shared together, Toni and Sam find the first one – “You are the One” – memorable. Sam reveals having a crush on Toni that time, a deeper kind of admiration that started out as early as his PBB days; while Toni admits feeling the same way. This kilig even led to a silent mutual understanding between them that unfortunately remained unclear until the last day.
Sam is admittedly an immature and shy guy at that time; not wanting to make the first move in taking his relationship with Toni a few steps ahead. The fact that Toni was sheltered and guarded by her parents, especially Daddy Bonoy, has made Sam more scared to pursue her. But he never failed to get a hint of jealousy every time someone else would try to woo Toni and he would just step back and let the other man win points in Toni’s heart.
Sam and Toni may not have had the proper closure before but they surprisingly became good friends as they grew older. In fact, the awkwardness and feelings of self-consciousness that floated around them in their younger years are no longer present at the moment. Sam has already met Toni’s husband, Paul Soriano a lot of times already and they even shared a movie project before. Sam has already had a quick bonding time with Toni’s son, Baby Seve where the child even played with Sam’s pet dog.
While Toni is already happily married, Sam is still currently single and not even dating anyone. Toni advices Sam to just be patient as the right woman will eventually come at the least expected moment. Sam, on the other hand, reveals that he is at the phase of his life where he offers God specific prayers about the better half whom he hasn’t know yet.
