PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"Get ready for an unforgettable summer experience as the phenomenal Tween Royalties of GMA Network invade the world famous white sand beach of Boracay for their ultimate island getaway in the top-rating youth-oriented series Reel Love presents Tween Hearts.
"This Sunday, March 6, a set of exciting adventures and a bunch of new friends are just some of the big developments viewers should look forward to in the special episodes shot entirely in the island.
"As they head off to Boracay, Belinda (Bea Binene) and Jacob’s (Jake Vargas) relationship further deteriorates because Jacob is just too busy practicing for his debut performance with the PopGirls.
"Rick (Derek Monasterio) and Heidi’s (Kylie Padilla) blooming relationship takes a sour turn because of a prank gone too far. Without anybody to turn to, Heidi goes to Belinda and finds the latter preparing for her Wu-shu competition. The two girls find something in common--the love for Chinese martial arts!
"On the other hand, Chris (Kristoffer Martin) tries to win Aya (Joyce Ching) back--and makes plans on how he will do it in Boracay. Leslie (Lexi Fernandez) chances upon a new, made-over "Uno" (John Marlowe Pamintuan)--will the changed Uno be better than the probinsyano who complements Leslie’s kasosyalan?
"Meanwhile, Tween Hearts has maintained its upbeat performance in the ratings game after its sweeping victory in its timeslot, consistently outranking its rival show since it debuted September last year.
"According to survey results from the more widely recognized TV ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen Philippines, it has edged out competition with an average audience share of 34.2 percent, 8.2 percentage points higher than ABS-CBN counterpart Your Song’s 26 percent in Mega Manila (with data based on overnight ratings for February 20 and 27, 2011). Tween Hearts likewise made it to the list of overall top 30 programs in Urban Luzon and Mega Manila.
"All these and more in Reel Love presents Tween Hearts this Sunday, March 6, right after Party Pilipinas on GMA-7."
