Gozon, Senior Assistant Vice President for Entertainment TV Gigi Santiago-Lara, and President and CEO of Mercator Artist and Model Management Inc. Jonas Antonio Gaffud.


Sa pangalawang pagkakataon ay si Benjamin Alves ang napili bilang ambassador para sa GMA Network Excellence Award (GNEA).

Ayon sa website ng Kapuso network, “GNEA, now on its 15th year, is the Kapuso Network's CSR program that recognizes graduating students with outstanding track record in leadership and socio-civic activities while upholding academic excellence in their respective colleges or universities. The nationwide search isopen to graduating students of Mass Communication, Multi-media Arts, Advertising, or any equivalent communication course, as well as Electronics and Communications Engineering (ECE).

“The GMA Network Excellence Award 2017 is in partnership with YesPinoy Foundation, Airfreight 2100, Inc. (Air21), University of the Philippines (Diliman) College of the Mass Communication, Don Bosco Technical College, and Angeles University Foundation.”

Ayon kay Benjamin, “Second year ko na po, so nagsisimula na po kaming mag-campus tour.

“So I go to whatever school invites me, mostly the College of Engineering or Communications para pag-usapan yung a little bit about my background—how I got my summa cum laude, how I got my honors.”

Nagtapos bilang summa cum laude si Benjamin sa kursong English Literature sa University of Guam bago nag-concentrate sa kanyang showbiz career.

Bago si Benjamin ay si Dingdong Dantes ang ambassador ng GNEA.

RENEWED RESPECT FOR DINGDONG. Ano ang pakiramdam ni Benjamin na bukod sa Primetime King ay siya ang napili para sa karangalagang ito sa dami ng artista ng GMA?

Sabi ng Pinulot Ka Lang Sa Lupa actor, “Masaya po!

“At kasama pa rin po si Kuya Dong sa proseso ng pagpili, so dun ko po na-appreciate si Kuya Dong kasi, you know, lahat naman po kami ina-idolize si Kuya Dong.

“Yung talino niya po, iba, e!

“Ano siya, he’s very knowledgeable.

“Yung kapag nag-panel interview kami sa mga estudyante, yung mga questions niya talagang educated, e. So wow!

“I never saw that side of him, kasi I never got to talk to him, so it’s always nice to see na si Kuya Dong na sobrang icon na sa industry, especially in GMA na he’s still able to surprise us and make me appreciate him in another aspect.”

DEALING WITH BASHERS. Kung may mga humahanga man sa mga achievements ni Benjamin, hindi rin nawawala ang bashers.

Ano ang ginagawa niya para ma-handle ang mga ito?

“Wala! Wala,” pakli niya.

May mga bashers din si Julie Anne San Jose na leading lady ni Benjamin sa Pinulot Ka Lang Sa Lupa at rumored girlfriend ni Benjamin.

Pag-amin niya, “I felt na siyempre bilang ikaw yung lalaki, you have to make sure na they know na you won’t stand for that...

“Yung hindi mo hahayang basta-basta na lang saktan yung taong… you care about the person tapos ganun, di ba?

“But we talked about it na, ‘Okay, nagawa na natin yung kailangang sabihin, nasabi na natin ang kailangang sabihin last year, so this year even though sometimes when you read the ano... hindi mo maiiwasan pag nabasa mo, talagang…”

Kapatul-patol?

Aniya, “Dati po, pero this year I made a resolution na no matter how much it affects me, hindi ko sila hahayaang manalo.

“Pareho po kami [ni Julie].”
