With his impressive performance as Andrew in the now-defunct ABS-CBN sineserye Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos?, Jake Cuenca has definitely proven that he has what it takes to be a serious actor instead of just a matinee idol.
From his usual teenybopper roles, Jake is now being groomed by his home network to become the next big action star with the launch of his very own teleserye Palos, opposite veteran actor Cesar Montano.
"I'm truly blessed that ABS-CBN gave me such a big break and to work with Mr. Cesar Montano is such an honor for me," said Jake.
Even before he went in the action genre, Jake is already an action star in his own rights with all the ‘villains' he has faced in his life in the form of intrigues that include rumors of an alleged gay benefactor and his psuedo-break-up with girlfriend Roxanne Guinoo.
"You can put it that way pero one thing is for sure, mas matindi pa rin ang makakalaban ko sa Palos," he added with a laugh.
This Saturday, February 9, Jake is out to battle yet another group of antagonists—the one hundred mob players of ABS-CBN's popular game show 1 vs 100.
"Nakakasindak talaga yung 100, perowhatever happens, I'll be going home a happy person because I will be experiencing something new," Jake explained.
Jake also felt privileged to be guesting in Edu Manzano's show since he grew up as a kid looking up to the host-actor. If he wins, the rising action star plans to donate all of his winnings to charity.
"As soon as I eliminated the 10 picks, I'll already take the money and give it all to KIDS Foundation," he added. K.I.D.S Foundation (Kabataan, Inyong Dapat Sagipin) is a group that aims to help less fortunate children.
The concept of "10 Picks" is an innovation that the ABS-CBN introduced to the Endemol hit game show as its local franchise. It requires solo players to choose ten mob members that they must eliminate before they can walk away with the pot money.
Find out if Jake will be the next millionaire as "Palos" himself face the mob of 1 vs 100, this Saturday (February 9), after Volta on ABS-CBN.
