Pinoy Fear Factor participante Marion dela Cruz clarifies gay rumor

"Alam ko naman po na lalaki ako, e. Okay lang po kung isipin ng tao na bakla ako," says Pinoy Fear Factor participante Marion dela Cruz about the gay issue being thrown at him.

Marion dela Cruz, the balikbayan from Vienna, Austria, laughed off speculations that he is gay when asked about it during the media junket prepared for the seven eliminated "participantes" of Pinoy Fear Factor last Monday, February 16.

"It was just a joke," said Marion. The 22-year-old Pinoy Fear Factor contestant once wore a two-piece swimsuit owned by his co-participante Savannah Lamsen as part of the consequence he got in one of the challenges. After this, his male co-participantes and even the show's avid viewers, started to speculate that Marion might really be gay.

He explained, "Nag-enjoy lang po talaga ako. Gusto ko lang po talaga magpatawa ng mga kasama ko kaya ginawa ko. Una po, napansin ko na nakakatawa ang reaksyon nila kapag [nagdamit-babae] ako, e. Noong sumunod po, hindi ko na alam ang rason, e. Nakita ko po ang reaksiyon nila, nakakatawa. 'Tapos po ang reaksyon ng ibang tao na nakakita, parang natawa rin po. Ako, mas masaya ako kapag napapasaya ang ibang tao, kesa ako ang nagpapapasaya sa sarili ko."

The former soccer player added that he never feared what people would say after seeing his gay-comedy acts in Pinoy Fear Factor.

"Ginusto ko naman talagang gawin 'yon," he said. "Para po sa akin, alam ko naman po na lalaki ako, e. Okay lang po kung isipin ng tao na bakla ako. Kasi naman po, hindi naman po lahat ng tao, di ba, nakakasundo ko, hindi naman po lahat ng tao puwedeng magustuhan ako. Pero mayroon naman po yatang mga tao na nakakaintinding joke lang 'yon."


"JANNA IS SPECIAL." Marion admitted his affection towards his co-participante, Janna Dominguez, who already started her showbiz career in the recently concluded Eva Fonda and the all-female gag show Banana Split.

"I like her, kasi kami 'yong nagkukulitan talaga sa camp area [El Campo Miedo in Argentina, South America], magkasundo talaga kami sa mga kalokohan," he said.

But it seems like Marion is still not taking his moves with Janna to the next level. In fact, he said, he would just like to maintain whatever his relationship is with Janna right now.

"Ngayon, friend lang kami, e. Friends lang talaga," described Marion. "Ayos lang sa amin ang friends kami, magkasama naman kami madalas, e, para sa Fear Factor, madalas kaming tinatawag dahil may mga mall shows. Lagi kaming nagkakasama at ang kulitan namin, ganun pa rin."

For Marion, he is just enjoying his time with Janna. "Parang hindi pa naman napag-uusapan ang tungkol sa commitment. Wala pa. hindi pa kami interesado, wala pa sa isip namin ang commitment. Nagte-text kami palagi. Nagkukuwentuhan po kami tungkol sa problema more than 'yong normal na friends po. Pero wala pa sa isip naman 'yong commitment."
