Mark Herras paired with Ynna Asistio

MARK HERRAS is one of the hosts of "Starstruck Shoutout", although he's not as frequently seen as co-hosts Arci Munoz, Paolo Avelino and LJ Reyes. "Busy kasi taping 'Ikaw Sana'," he says. "But will be having our last taping day on Friday (today), in Tagaytay, and hopefully after that, mas makakasali na ko sa 'Shoutout'."

Who does he think would win in "Starstruck V"? "I'm basing it on the feedback from the fans and I think among the guys, malakas sina Rocco Nacino and Enzo Pineda, and among the girls, Sarah Lahbati and Nina Kodaka," he says. "But all the remaining survivors have a chance of winning dahil puede pa nilang pagbutihin ang coming performances nila so they won't be eliminated. Kaya ang payo ko sa kanila, basta do their best. In the end, nasa talent pa rin ang labanan, e."

Isn't he worried that with the coming of new winners, the careers of past Starstruck ultimate survivors like him will be surpassed? "Not really. Kami ni Jennylyn (Mercado) ang first winners at, awa ng Diyos, we're still here at marami sa batch namin, nagbida na at active pa rin. Hindi naman kami pinababayaan ng GMA-7. Heto nga, after 'Ikaw Sana', kasama naman ako sa primetime soap na 'Diva' ni Regine Velasquez." He'll be paired with his rumored girlfriend, Ynna Asistio.

Don't miss the final week of "Ikaw Sana" as more revelations come out, with Eliza (Jennylyn) and Michael (Mark) discovering that the evil Sofia (Pauleen Luna) is manipulating Giselle (Camille Prats) to make sure that Michael gets estranged from Eliza for good. If you're watching the show, you'd agree that it's actually Pauleen who emerges as the best performer in the series. She just dominates it as the villain nonpareil and she can now join the ranks of other excellent TV villains from Princess Punzalan and Jean Garcia to younger ones like Gladys Reyes, Glaiza de Castro, and Alessandra de Rossi.
