JAK ROBERTO plays a very sympathetic character in the hit GMA Primetime sports-drama series, “Bolera”. 

As Toypits, he is the childhood friend and loyal supporter of Kylie Padilla, who plays Joni. 

He is all out in helping Joni succeed in her quest to be a billiards champ. He is obviously very much in love with Joni but has yet to express his real feelings for her.  

But then, Rayver Cruz as Miguel Salvador enters the picture and suddenly, Joni seems to be more infatuated with him. 

No wonder viewers who have seen how Jak as Toypits have nurtured and cared for Joni now feel so bad for him and wish that Joni would still reciprocate his feelings. 

Will there be a chance that the two of them will still end up in each other’s arms when the show concludes?  

“Hindi pa po natin alam,” says Jak. “But as of now, talagang nagpapasalamat po ako sa lahat ng nagpapahayag ng suporta nila sa character ko. 

"Meron na ngang Team Toypits versus Team Miguel. Basta manood lang po kayo dahil marami pang magagandang story developments sa ‘Bolera’ na tiyak na masisiyahan kayo sa inyong gabi-gabing panonood.”  

Off cam, we all know that Jak’s heart is already committed to Barbie Forteza, who is celebrating her 25th birthday on July 31. 

In the special birthday presentation for Barbie in “All Out Sundays”, Jak delivered a special message greeting for her. saying:

“Alam n’yo guys ‘yang si Barbie, madali lang naman ‘yan pasayahin e. Kailangan lang makarating agad sa kanya ang delivery ng pagkaing inorder niya, kasi kung hindi, ako na ang kakagatin niyan. Di ba, madam?”

Barbie says in return: “Ayun na nga, nagulat naman ako na may paganyan pala siya. Well, sa totoo lang, ‘di naman ako na-offend, na-excite ako dun sa kagat part. Pero mas gusto ko talagang dumadating agad ‘yung food delivery.” 

Jak and Barbie are now in their 5th year of being sweethearts. Barbie was asked what Jak should do before he would formally propose to her. 

“I think, dapat, may ipon muna. Bukod dun, wala na. Approved na lahat. ‘Yun na lang, ipon na lang for our future.”
