Ronnie Alonte is not exactly a fan of selfies.
“Hindi naman masyado,” he said during the Oppo F5's carnival show at the Cyberzone of SM North EDSA.
But when he has a good camera phone, he can’t help but click away.
Ronnie added, “E, kasi parang kumplikado na yung mukha [pero] pag nag-selfie ka, ganda, e.”
Given the nature of his job, requiring him to look good even on photos, does he practice his angles?
“Gusto ko mas wide kasi pag wide, iba, e. Nakakapayat, nakakapayat.
“Malaki yung ganun mo (showing the background), ‘tapos payat ka.
“Minsan depende din, e, sa lugar kung maganda…”
And just like most stars, he posts his OOTDs "kung sa porma, lalo pang-Showtime na damit."
As a Hashtags member, he regularly appear on It’s Showtime.
But does he ask for a wefie with fellow stars?
“Hindi, hindi, hindi.
“Ano lang, depende siguro lalo na pag kasama ko. Kunwari si Alex Gonzaga, kasama ko siya ngayon, puwede kami mag-selfie."
He also mentioned the “Hashtags, Vice, Showtime family."
But guess who is his favorite ka-selfie?
“Si Vice Ganda!”
“Wala, sobrang close kami, mabait siya sa ’kin, mabait ako sa kanya, nagtutulungan kaming dalawa.
“Tinutulungan niya ko pag may… kunyari hihingi akong tulong sa kanya about sa…”
He didn’t get to finish his sentence, but nodded when PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) contributor Allan Sancon said “promotion.”
And even if he does not take selfies that often, Ronnie said he sees nothing wrong with it.
“So ayun ang masasabi ko lang sa kanila, wag kayong, hindi porke't lalaki siya, e, bakla na pag nag-selfie. Gawin niyo lang, normal lang.
“Selfie-selfie natural ‘yan sa tao.”
