Starstruck 6 Reject Dave Bornea Reject Now Busier With More Projects Than Those Who Made It As Finalists

DAVE BORNEA joined Starstruck 6 last year but he didn’t make it to the top 14 finalists. “Hanggang top 18 lang po ako,” says the Cebu-born and raised newcomer.

But now, he is busier and has more projects than some of those who made it to the finals. He became a member of the boyband One Up, consisting of goodlooking and talented young men now seen in “Celebrity Bluff”, and he was given a good role in Dingdong Dantes’ hit show, “Alyas Robin Hood”, where he was paired with Lindsay de Vera. After that, he was recruited to be one of the GAYA boys in “Meant to Be”.

“Nakahinga ako nang maluwag when I was informed na kasama ako sa ‘Meant to Be’ kasi may pambayad na uli ako ng renta sa condo unit ko sa Cubao,” he laughs. “I’m the only one here kasi sa Manila and my whole family is based in Cebu. Wala naman akong ibang matitirhan dito kung wala akong pambayad ng rent.”

He’s glad that all his co-stars in “Meant to Be” are very friendly to him. “Kahit baguhan kami ng mga kasama ko sa GAYA Boys, they welcomed us warmly. Very understanding lahat sila, lalo na si Barbie Forteza na laging sobrang taas ng energy.”

So what happened to him and Lindsay de Vera to whom he was linked before? “I haven’t seen her lately. Puro trabaho kasi ako ngayon. Hindi pa puedeng mag-love life kasi kailangang maging stable muna ang estado ng finances ko. Uunahin ko muna yung pambayad sa rent at sa kakainin ko. Magastos makipag-date, e. Kaya crush-crush na lang muna from a distance.”
