For the second episode of PEPtalk, hosts Erwin Santiago and Kathleen Benavidez did a mind game testing the similarities between Jeric and Jeron Teng.
Erwin began, "Magme-mention kami ng dalawang random names [or choices]... And then, after the count of three, papipiliin natin sina Jeron at Jeric."
First question: Angel Locsin or Marian Rivera?
Jeric and Jeron: Marian Rivera!
When asked, "Bakit?" Jeric answered, "Wala, sexy, e."
Second question: Anne Curtis or Bea Alonzo?
Jeric and Jeron: Anne Curtis!
To this, Jeron threw in, she’s "hot!"
Third Question: Sarah Geronimo or Kim Chiu?
Jeric and Jeron: Kim Chiu.
Both added, "Dahil Chinese."
Fourth question: Jessy Mendiola or Julia Montes?
Jeric picked "Jessy Mendiola!"
Jeron burst into laughter, "Dalawa kasi crush ko, e."
When pressed to choose just one, the Green Archers’ MVP (Most Valuable Player) said, "Pareho lang, e. Dami kasi akong showbiz crush."
Out of 11 questions, Jeric and Jeron picked the same choices for 10 questions.
Erwin remarked, "Pareho pa talaga kayo, hindi ba kaya nagkakaroon ng conflict? Meron bang niligawan si utol na type mo rin? "
Jeric quickly replied "wala naman," giving as reasons the "three-year" age gap and "different schools."
He added, "Sana wala."
The captain of the UST Growling Tigers is 21 years old, while his younger brother from the La Salle Archers is 18.
Erwin’s follow-up question: "If ever kaya mangyari yun, sinong magbibigay?"
With their eyes smiling, "Wala. Rivalry ulit!"
Their answers earned chuckles from the people watching the shoot last October 17, at Urbn Bar & Kitchen, The Fort, Bonifacio Global City.
The video interview was held on the occasion of the formal launch of Spin.ph, the sister website of PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
