Boy-band Take 5 gets first taste of showbiz controversies


Take 5 is composed of (L-R) Carlos Concepcion, Reynald Talasig, Hansen Nichols, Joseph Solomon, and Doug Robinson. The five young hunks regularly perform in SOP.



Ipinakilala na rin sa entertainment press ang pinakabagong boy band ng Sunday musical variety show ng GMA-7 na SOP, ang Take 5, last February 4, sa GMA-7 compound. Sinagot ng limang hunks ang lahat ng mga issues sa kanila.

Doug Robinson, Hansen Nichols, Reynald Talosig, Joseph Solomon, and Carlos Concepcion are the members of Take 5—jointly managed by Joji Dingcong (manager ni Cogie Domingo) and Leo Dominguez (manager naman nina Ogie Alcasid at Lovi Poe). Originally raw, hindi naman banda kundi solo or duet lang ang balak buuin ng dalawang managers, but since the five passed, na-decide na gawin na silang banda.

Kumalat na sa mga Yahoo! groups at iba pang Internet sites ang Take 5 dahil napakaraming intriga agad ang naibato sa kanila. Galing daw silang lahat sa mga pinakamayayamang pamilya ng Pilipinas, that richest of them daw is trying to be the male Paris Hilton, and that one or two of them is gay.

Carlos really belongs to the Concepcion clan that owns Concepcion Industries (Carrier, Kelvinator, among others). Lolo niya si Joe Concepcion, the patriarch of the clan at may blessing siya to enter showbiz. The Dela Salle High School graduate is now a student of the College of Asia and the Pacific taking up Entrepreneurial Management.

Carlos also joined last year's Mossimo Bikini Contest. Siya rin ang sinasabing male Paris Hilton dahil kahit napakayaman niya, pinasok niya pa rin ang showbiz, and with a very controversial pictorial pa kung saan nakahubo't hubad siya.

Explanation ni Carlos, it's true na siya nga yun but he swears wala namang nakita sa kanyang private parts, or at least sa mga actual pictures, dahil dark daw ito. Kaya nga lang, malamang na na-enhance ang mga pictures na magliwanag nang konti kung kaya't lumabas ang hindi dapat makita.

Si Joseph naman ay Ateneo High School graduate, now Entrepreneurial Management student din ng Entrepreneurial School of Asia (dating Thames College). Sumali rin si Joseph sa Mossimo kasabay ni Carlos. Pinsan niya ang isa sa mga naging past winners ng Mossimo.

Hansen, who has a twin brother named Jansen, is from the University of San Francisco taking up Economics. Rey is a student at UP Diliman taking up Broadcasting. Si Doug ay graduate naman ng Cebu Maritime Institute.

Sa isyu na isa raw sa kanila ay bading, tinawanan lang ng lima ito dahil hindi naman daw ito totoo. All five have sworn—individually—that they are heterosexuals.

May album na rin silang ilu-launch at tiyak na gagawin ito sa SOP.
