Some of the lead stars of GMA-7 and VIVA TV's youth-oriented series, TGIS, made a guest appearance in the Eat Bulaga segment, "Bawal Judgmental."

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) compiles the highlights of the TGIS reunion in the "Bawal Judgmental" segment.

1. Angelu de Leon and Bobby Andrews were never in a relationship.

Angelu and Bobby formed the most popular love team ofTGIS during the show's run, which is why people assumed that they became a real-life couple.

However, in the "Bawal Judgmental" episode, it was revealed that they never had a relationship.

Bobby said, "We work well kasi together. We are good friends, we mesh together. Unfortunately, hindi lang naging kami."

Towards the end of the segment, Ciara Sotto tried to contest their claim that they were never together.

Angelu explained, "Yung explanation talaga namin ni Bob, because nga we're really soulmates, we're more than friends but less of a lover. That's why we're really good with each other."

Angelu first said this when she and Bobby did a guest appearance in PEP.ph's online talk show, PEPTalk, in 2015.

Angelu said back then during that interview, "I remember kapag ini-interview kami, 'What do you guys have?'

"Sabi ko, 'We're more than friends but less of a lover.' Kasi ganun talaga.

"Then we realized kung meron talagang perfect soulmate, walang relationship involved, that’s us."

In the PEPTalk episode, Bobby revealed that he wanted to court Angelu back then.

But then, he recalled, "Nang medyo nakaamoy ang mommy niya, kinausap ako. 'Si Angelu, bata pa 'yan, hintayin mo muna mag-eighteen 'yan. Ayoko may mangyayari sa inyo bago mag-eighteen siya. So, whatever you have now, ganun na 'yon.'"

2. Angelu de Leon became romantically involved with two co-stars: Michael Flores and Onemig Bondoc.

One of the biggest revelations was the fact that Michael and Angelu actually became an item.

This came as a shock to everyone since they were not a love team at the time.

Michael clarified, "Actually, matagal na talaga yun.

"Actually, bago pa mag-TGIS yun, tapos noong TGIS, nagkaroon ng something pa, pero hindi na rin tumagal."

According to Michael, his relationship with Angelu did not last long because of her love team with Bobby.

Michael recalled, "Actually, kinausap din ako ni Bob, e, ang sabi sa akin ni Bob, 'Bro, sobrang crush ko yan dati pa.'

"Sabi ko, 'Okay sige, madali naman akong kausap.'"

When asked how long their relationship lasted, Michael answered, "E, siyempre, bata pa kami, puppy love, so kilig-kilig lang. Baka mga months lang yun or ano, mabilis lang talaga."

Angelu added, "Para lang clear, Ang TV days pa yun, not TGIS."

Aside from Michael, Angelu also had a brief relationship with Onemig Bondoc.

Onemig was the third wheel to Angelu and Bobby's love team in TGIS.

Angelu stressed, "Pero again, not TGIS days."

3. Ciara Sotto had a relationship with love-team partner Onemig Bondoc.

If there is one TGIS love team that led to a real-life relationship, it was the pairing of Ciara Sotto and Onemig Bondoc.

After Onemig's character, JM, got heartbroken over Peachy (Angelu), he shifted his attention to Rain (Ciara).

According to Ciara, her relationship with Onemig lasted for about eight months.

When asked to describe how Onemig court her, Ciara narrated, "E, pumupunta sa bahay namin, visit, nagbibigay ng mga chocolates."

4. TGIS batch two love teams led to real-life relationships.

It is a common knowledge in showbiz that both actors became romantically involved with their respective love-team partners.

Dino had a seven-year relationship with former leading lady Kim delos Santos.

When asked if they still have a connection, Dino said, "Actually, yung parang kasama ko ngayon, yung partner ko, mas sila yung close."

Dino described his ligawan days with Kim by saying, "Siyempre, nagsimula lahat sa set, sa taping, kasi araw-araw kaming magkasama literally.

"So hanggang sa na-in love ako sa kanya, mga after six months, noong alam kong may nararamdaman ako sa kanya, niligawan ko na siya."

Dino is looking forward to reuniting with Kim soon.

"Actually, baka mga three months from now, pupuntahan ko siya sa New Jersey. I'll try to find a way to reach out sa kanya para lamg makipag-usap, makipagkwentuhan."

According to Polo, his relationship with Sunshine lasted for four years.

He pointed out, "Pero kasi, on and off dahil siyempre, bata kami nun, nag-aaway, nagbi-break, pero all in all, four years."

Another love team from TGIS batch two that became a real-life couple were Antoinette Taus and Dingdong Dantes. Unfortunately, they were both not present at the reunion.

5. Bobby Andrews met his partner on the set of TGIS.

Bobby might not have ended up with his TGIS love-team partner Angelu de Leon, but it was TGIS that allowed him to meet his wife, Bienne Co.

In fact, Angelu played a big part in their relationship.

Bobby recalled, "Nagkakilala kami sa taping ng TGIS, my wife was still a student during that time, tapos kasama niya yung mga classmates niya, nagpa-practicum sila doon and that's where I met her.
