ABS-CBN's Sunday showbiz talk show The Buzz has a new segment called "Tough Ten." The live guest celebrity will be asked tensupposedly tough questions and the artist has to answer them all.
Last Sunday, November 9, Pinoy Fear Factor host Ryan Agoncillo took the hot seat, interviewed by The Buzz host Boy Abunda.
What is his biggest fear?
"The fear of being unable to take care of my family the wayI want to."
What are the three attributes of Juday that he favors?
"Makulit, pilya, at parang bata mag-trip."
Which onescares Ryan the most?
"Pilya," Ryan said without hesitation. When asked toexplain: "Si Juday, ang ugali nito, pag nagmamaneho ako, e, anghilig mangiliti. Kung iba mangiliti, ayos lang, e, hindi ko papansinin. Perokung siya, well, baka kasi kung saan ko maliko, baka mabangga kami."
What can he say about reports accusing him ofusing Juday for his career advancement?
"Hindi kasi maikaila na kahit siguro sino madikitsa isang artista na kasing sikat ni Juday, e, matutulungan. E, ako, I'm justgrateful. Ako, I'll be the first liar kung ako ang magsabi na hindi akotinulungan ni Juday."
Was there a time na muntik nakayong maghiwalay ni Juday?
"Yes," Ryan admitted. "The first year of our relationship wasvery rocky. Kasi, mahirap ang love, e. And it is tougher that my girlfriend isthe young superstar. It's very hard. There are some things that you have todetermine kung totoo o hindi. So, pilit kaming hindi nagtrabaho for a yeartogether para malaman namin na hindi lang dahil araw-araw kaming magkasama saset. Baka doon lang nanggaling 'yon. So, we had to find out if it is love orjust proximity."
(Ryan and Judy Ann were co-stars in the ABS-CBN fantaserye Krystala, where they started having feelings for each other.)
Sa afternoon soap ni Ryan na Pieta, may kissing scene siya sa leading lady niya na si Krista Ranillo. Nailang ba siya dahil nandoon sa set si Juday?
"Not at all. Nabusog ako noong dumating si JudyAnn Santos!"
"Lately, hindi siya nagte-taping for her soap [Humiling Ako Sa Langit] dahilnire-revise yung script," explained Ryan. "So minsan, naghahanap siya ng excusepara magluto. Gagawin niya, magluluto siya, dadalhin sa set, at ipapakain salahat. When she arrives, she makes it a point not to go anywhere near the scenesthat we do—whatever it is we do. Una, ayaw niya na mailang ako. Pangalawa, ayawniya mailang kung sino man kaeksena ko."
Judy Ann and her manager Alfie Lorenzo had an issue before.In this issue, Alfie called Ryan "Atty. Ryan Agoncillo," possibly because ofRyan voluntary getting himself into the issue. Was he offended by Alfie'sremark about him?
"You know, siguro this is the first time I'm actually gonnasay this. Kasi maraming nagtatanong kung bakit I decided to keepquiet the whole time na may gulo. Ang position ko kasi diyan, e, sa gulo nilabilang talent and manager, e, my participation is not as another artista, but asa fiancé of Judy Ann Santos. It is not right for me na makisali sa kung ano mannagaganap sa media because my participation nga is on a personal level
"Hindiimportante sa akin ang magsalita sa diyaryo, sa radio o sa T.V. Ang importantesa akin, e, Tito Alfie gave me a chance to speak to him in person. I mean,binigyan niya ako ng chance na magtanong at sinagot naman niya, and that's allthat matters to me. I told him nga how I felt. He told me also how he felt.Naging maayos ang usapan. Kung napikon, hindi. We exchanged gentlemanly words.You know, Alfie is like a ‘lola' sa amin ngayon. Siya na rin ang nagsabi na, 'Hindi negosyo ang pag-uusapan natin, iho, kundi buhay.'"
ARGENTINEAN MODEL & OTHER TEMPTATIONS. According to news, on the shooting of Pinoy Fear Factor inArgentina, Ryan had a supposed fling with his Argentinean co-host namedValeria. Is this true?
"Ang isa sa mga nangyari sa Argentina ay pinag-tripan akonila Direk Lauren [Dyogi]. They warned me na bago pa lang tumulak papuntangArgentina na ‘Ryan, be ready because there will be a little something-somethingdoon pagdating mo.' Ayun, pagdating ko, isang napakagandang babae angsumalubong sa akin. Paglabas ko, sabiko na, ‘Naku, ito na yata ‘to! Ito na yata ang sinasabi ni Direk.' Sa totoolang, yung babae na 'yon, sa sobrang ganda niya, e, habang nakatayo doon saharap ng airport, e, nagbanggaan mga kotse dahil nakatitig sa kanya!"
As it turned out, Valeria is a model and an actress inArgentina. When they met, Valeria was talking to Ryan in Spanish. Later, Ryanfound out that Valeria was flirting with him. "Pero hindi ko naintindihan!"laughed Ryan, "So, being the little boy that I am, in-enjoy ko na lang!"
So, did anything happen between him and Valeria?
"Yun, iniwan ako sa kuwarto mag-isa!" laughed Ryan.
With issues linking him to Krista Ranillo and theArgentinean model Valeria, does Ryan get tempted sometimes?
"The past few months have been fruitful for me," relatedRyan. "Ang sinasabi ko lang, marunong ang Diyos. He gives me projects likethis that will test me before I get married. Had this happened during thefirst year of our relationship, I would have been so weak. But now, I know whyI'm working, I know what I'm working, for so wala ‘yan."
MARRYING JUDAY. Is there anything that would stop him from marrying JudyAnn Santos?
"I doubt it," Ryan smiled. "I highly doubt it."
Is Ryan ready to give up all for Judy Ann Santos?
"The only reason I'm doing it is for her," said Ryan. "So, Iguess, if it's needed then, yeah. But then, I have to be grateful kasi this isthe means for me to take care of my future family. Parang bastos kung sabihinna talikuran ko ang grasya. Pero alam ko na ang grasya hindi para sa 'kin, para sapamilya."
If Ryan had his way, would he invite Robin Padilla and PioloPascual to their wedding?
"I don't know Robin personally," Ryan admitted. "And satotoo, ang napag-usapan namin ni Judy Ann, ayaw namin na wala kaming hindikilala, and at this point, hindi ko siya kilala. Siguro kung magkakilala kamiat magkaayusan ng kuwentuhan at kagaanan ng loob. So nothing's impossible."
How about Piolo?"Piolo, if he's available. If Judy Ann decidesto invite him, then who am I to deny her an invitation to a friend on herspecial day?" said Ryan.
