StarStruck Avenger Piero Vergara says early elimination didn't crush his showbiz hopes

"I've thought that being in StarStruck was just a start and there are other ways to prove myself. Ina-admit ko naman that there are some flaws inside me that I still have to improve on. I'm sure GMA will help me out with that," says the new Kapuso talent.


"How's life after Starstruck?"

Iyon ang unang tinanong ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Piero Vergara sa contract signing ng Final 14 bilang mga Kapuso noong March 11.

Ang sagot naman niya, "Masasabi ko the same thing, same routine. Ang naiba lang siguro, meron na akong guestings."

Nang tanungin namin kung nakikila na ba siya ng mga fans, napaka-humble ng sagot niya.

"I never like calling them fans or supporters, they are people who know me.

"Some people recognize me, like at school. There are some people who come up to me, I'll be walking in the street may tatawag sa akin tapos titingin ako. It's very nice actually that they acknowledge my presence in TV and everything like that.

"It's a fun feeling, it's a good feeling."

NOT DISAPPOINTED. Tanggap na ba niya ngayon na hindi siya nanalo?

"Yeah, tanggap na tanggap ko na! Like ever since, this is what I said after I got eliminated. They asked me like how I felt, sabi ko I felt happy and sad too kasi I had to lose connection with some friends there.

"We wouldn't see each other for a while but I was happy that I got to that point like, ever since I joined Starstruck I told myself to brace for the worst and hope for the best, so if ever something happens, I won't get disappointed.

"If ever that something happens, that's good, I don't get it up to my head or anything. So ever since I got eliminated, maybe nasaktan lang talaga ako by the thought na mase-separate ako sa mga kasama ko...

"I was never really crushed, like my hopes of being an artista. I've thought that being in StarStruck was just a start... and there are other ways to prove myself.

"Like ina-admit ko naman that there are some flaws inside me that I still have to improve on, I'm sure GMA will help me out with that."

NO TO GAY-THEMED MOVIES. Is he willing to go sexy?

"I don't know. I don't think as of now mao-offer-an ako ng sexy kasi medyo mataba pa ako."

But for the sake of art?

"I'm a lover of art talaga, I appreciate art but, like, I don't go watching guys' butts and all.

"But I guess that wouldn't be so bad if ever the time would come that I would have to face that kind of stuff, I'll think about it then, but I don't want to think about it now."

Kung alukin siyang gumawa ng isang indie movie katulad ng Brokeback Mountain na highly-acclaimed gay-themed movie?

"I think I'm not going to step [into] that kind of movie, I'm pretty satisfied where I am right now. No offense, I don't see anything wrong with being that way but I prefer to stay on my own side."
