AshTan fans raved when their idols, Ashley del Mundo and Tan Roncal, guested in Tonight With Boy Abunda for a kilig-inducing interview. They talked about their special friendship and how it started. According to Ashley and Tan, attraction at first sight was far from their case; they didn’t even interact on their first few days inside the Pinoy Big Brother House.
But, Ashley realized Tan was the only housemate she doesn’t get to talk with, so she made the bold move to approach the guy who would surprisingly turn out as her loveteam. “Because he was just so quiet”, Ashley justified.
The first conversation was followed by more interactions until Tan realized he’s enjoying Ashley’s company; and they’ve been quite inseparable since then. They even came up with a secret handshake and Tan has already admitted his special feelings for the ‘Adventurous Angel of Australia’. “I like you, Ashley”, Tan’s straightforward confession.
Proving their closeness is their easy and comfortable take on Tito Boy’s challenges. The first one was called Titigan Challenge where they’re tasked to look each other in the eye for fifteen seconds. No hassle for AshTan!
Next is the Akbayan Challenge where they’re supposed to express their feelings through ‘akbay’. Tan gently put his arms across Ashley’s shoulder to express a happy vibe. Meanwhile, he has shown more possessiveness when asked to display an ‘in love akbay’.
Apart from these, Ashley gamely took on the Filipino Challenge that required her to translate English phrases into Filipino. The Australian-based beauty surpassed the test, of course, through Tan’s help.
To cap off the segment, Ashley and Tan showed off their talent by singing “Can’t Get Out” composed by the PBB Otso Batch 3 housemates.
