Four 'Artista Academy' Students Axed In One Blow: Alberto, Marvelous, Nicole, Stephanie

A FEW NIGHTS ago, they were so happy while on a field trip to Hongkong. But on Monday night, it’s crying time for the “Artista Academy” students as four them were kicked out simultaneously: Alberto Bruno, Marvelous Alejo, Nicole Estrada and Stephanie Rowe.

This week, in line with their “Fearless” challenge, remaining contenders Chanel Morales, Benjo Leoncio, Malak So Shdifat, Vin Abrenica, Mark Neumann, Shaira Mae, Aki Blanco and Sophie Albert will do two horror flicks helmed by scary films expert Topel Lee. The short films will be shown in the Live Exam this Saturday.

Artista Academy Principal Wilma V. Galvante also announced that eliminated students will form a group called Tropang Kickout and do one production number in coming Live Exams. Though expelled from Artista Academy, they continue their extensive training at the Asian Academy of Television Arts (AATA). Artista Academy airs weeknights at 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. on TV5.
