‘Protege’ Male Winner Jeric Gonzales Not Ashamed Of His Sexy Fotos Taken When He Joined A Male Beaty Pageant

'PROTEGE' male winner Jeric Gonzales now has the aura of a real star. This is the comment of most writers who attended the launch of GMA’s new show “Teen Gen”. So how has his life changed since he won in “Protégé”?

“Andaming binigay na exposure sa’kin in various shows so mas nasanay ako in facing the camera,” he says. “I guested in ‘Kusina Master’ with Chef Boy Logro, sa ‘Mars’ nina Camille Prats and Suzi Entrata and I assisted Jaya and Gladys Reyes in ‘Nay 1-1’. Masaya. I met a lot of people and I gained so much from the experience.”

How did he feel when his sexy fotos in skimpy trunks taken when he joined Ginoong Laguna circulated on the internet? “Nandun na yun, wala na kong magagawa, so no regrets. I’m proud to have represented Calamba at kahit paano, nanalo naman ako.”

In “Teen Gen”, he plays Tiago Torres, the son of Jao Mapa. “Pinsan ko si Juancho Trivino na anak naman ni Bobby Andrews at kami ang bullies in our school. Parang barkada na kami talaga ngayon ng mga kasama ko sa cast after two weekends of intense workshops for us to get to know each other better and after taping two episodes.”

“Teen Gen” starts airing this Sunday after “Party Pilipinas”.
