Juancho Trivino Doesn't Mind Playing Support To Aldub In 'Destined To Be Yours', Gets Bashed For Playing Maine Mendoza's Best Friend Who's Secretly In Love With Her

JUANCHO TRIVINO doesn’t mind playing a supporting role in “Destined to Be Yours”, which starts airing tonight after “Encantadia”, even if he already played a leading man role in the telefantasya “Magkaibang Mundo”.

“Okay lang naman yun dahil this is a great major show at on primetime pa,” he says. “We all know kung gaano kalakas ang AlDub love team and I’m just glad to be a part of their first primetime drama series. At saka kahit lead o supporting role ang ginagampanan mo, ang importante, husayan mo ang acting mo dahil yun ang mas mapapansin ng viewers.”

He’s the third wheel in the Alden Richards-Maine Mendoza love team as Badong, the best friend of Maine as Sinag. “Secretly in love ako kay Maine sa story pero wala akong lakas ng loob na sabihin ang feelings ko sa kanya,” he says.

Isn’t he afraid of being bashed by diehard AlDub fans? “Naku, meron na nga akong natatanggap na hate messages sa social media. We all know naman how possessive ang fans nina Maine at Alden. Parang si Koreen Medina na may gusto rin kay Alden sa story at naba-bash din ng fans. Lalo na nang lumabas ang pictures namin ni Maine na kinunan sa set, may mga nag-negative comments agad na binibigyan ng maling interpretasyon. But I assure them I’m just playing a role.”

It’s common knowledge that Juancho has a non-showbiz girlfriend, Cheska Mendiola, the daughter of Councilor Rowena Bautista-Mendiola and niece of Bong Revilla. “So I want to assure AlDub fans na hindi ako threat sa love team ng mga idol nila.”
