Mark Herras reforms before it's too late

LOLIT SOLIS succeeded in knocking some sense into the head of her ward, Mark Herras of Starstruck 1, who’s been delinquent lately. Lolit had a conflict with Mark  and Nadia. She decided not to drop him anymore after he promised that he’d reform. He’s now taking speech lessons in preparation for his job as host of the dance show, “Danserye”, with Enzo Pineda. How does he feel when people say that Aljur Abrenica of Starstruck 4 has overtaken him in popularity? “Okay lang naman i-compare kami sa isa’t isa but I don’t feel insecure or anything,” he says. “For me, it’s just healthy competition kasi pareho kaming Kapuso. And personally, okay naman kami so wag na lang kami intrigahin. Maski naman noong may nanalo sa Starstruck 2 and 3, iniintriga na rin ako about them but awa ng Diyos, nandito pa rin ako at nagkakatulungan pa nga kami ng kapwa ko Starstruck alumni.”

For his recent birthday, instead of having a party, he treated 54 orphans of My Father’s House Foundation to a day of fun at Enchanted Kingdom so the foundation’s executive director, Deanna Collins, is very grateful to him for entertaining her wards.
