Gauging their degree of relationship based on the TWBA love spectrum, young pair Karina Bautista and Aljon Mendoza stood by the “Special Friends” level, inciting intense kilig from their avid fans. Indeed, there are evidences proving the special connection between the KarJon loveteam.
On top of the list was Karina’s effort to celebrate Aljon’s birthday while she was inside Bahay ni Kuya and Aljon was outside the house. Karina had to mentally count the days since there were no calendars, clocks, or any writing instrument inside the Pinoy Big Brother house. On the day of Aljon’s birthday, Karina prepared his favorite meal, ginisang ampalaya and she kept on singing the “Happy Birthday” song hoping that Aljon would watch the live shows and get the message.
As soon as she returns to the ‘outside world’, Karina handed Aljon her late birthday gift – a box containing a pen, notebook, and several pictures. But, even before she left for the second half of her stint inside the PBB house, Karina already gave Aljon her sweet birthday message. “Wala man ako pero nasa isip pa rin naman kita”, she told her loveteam partner.
KarJon also shared that they own a teddy bear named KarJunior, a gift from a fan in Zamboanga. They take turns in taking care of KarJunior but Karina said she does not allow washing the stuffed toy in order to keep its essence.
Just like any other pair with special feelings for one another, Karina and Aljon have their own share of misunderstanding as well. Aljon revealed that he once felt jealous over fellow PBB Otso graduate Seth Fedelin. Aljon felt out of placed while watching Karina and Seth’s movie bonding. Nevertheless, all it took was a simple “sorry” from Karina, besides, they both clarify that there is nothing to be jealous about Karina and Seth’s plain friendship.
The young loveteam offers their fans a new teleserye project entitled Sandugo. Karina and Aljon portray the roles of Andrea and Marco, two teenagers who belong in opposing clans. Sandugo is airing on September 30.
