In his TWBA guesting last June, hunk actor Jake Cuenca was asked to set things straight about his relationship status with beauty queen turned actress Kylie Verzosa. But, he opted not to confirm anything at that time despite the parade of sweet couple photos in both their Instagram accounts. Jake said he would only completely spill the beans when he gets to take the TWBA hot seat together with Kylie.
So, when Jake and Kylie faced Tito Boy together last September 16, all it took was a straightforward “Yes” from the two to officially confirm their relationship. The couple first met in the set of “Ang Panday” in 2017 in where Jake played as the villain while Kylie took on the role of a fairy that helped Flavio, Coco Martin’s character, in his journey.
Looking back on that memorable day, Jake recalled that he was doing a fight scene with Coco when Kylie passed by. He was instantly captivated by the Miss International titleholder’s beauty. On the other hand, love at first sight was far from what Kylie felt. She was not impressed with Jake’s long hair and intense bad boy aura.
Jake tried to make his first move through the aid of social media, albeit still feeling a bit shy. But, Jake’s attempt to win Kylie’s attention unfortunately failed. He was, as millennials put it, “seen-zoned”. Nevertheless, Jake hoped and believed in his heart that he would still cross paths with Kylie again. Jake’s wish was granted when he got the chance to work with Kylie via Kapamilya series Los Bastardos.
When asked about any plans of getting married, both Jake and Kylie are on the same page. “I can see it in the horizon,” Jake confessed. The actor added that Kylie is the only woman who gave him this kind of certainty.
“Jake and I are not teenagers anymore. We are just two adults living our own lives but we complete each other,” Kylie’s response. Still, the couple wants to refrain from rushing things.
The lovebirds take on a fun TWBA challenge where they reveal fun facts about their relationship and prove they are each other’s best friend. Based on their answers, both of them act clingy with each other while Jake is the one who easily gets jealous. Joseph Marco and Ritz Azul were the last persons they got jealous with but all due to teleserye and movie scenes.
