Team GMA made up of Kris Bernal, Alden Richards, Bela Padilla and Sarah Lahbati, who appear on Mega Magazine’s July 2012 issue, emerged victorious in the online poll created by the magazine that pitted their version of the cover with that of ABS-CBN stars.
The official tally from MegaStyle.ph showed that the team GMA cover garnered 405,007 or at least 31,000 votes ahead of ABS generated during the two-week voting period.
It was a tight match but the Kapuso fans showed no signs of slowing down as they poured in their support for their idols that proved to be worth it in the end.
Along with the online votes came an overwhelming stream of positive comments for Kris, Alden, Bela and Sarah, who all look every inch a star on their winning version of the cover.
The so-called “network wars” continue with the upcoming release of the sales result of the two covers, where in GMA is currently taking the lead based on the latest updates from Mega.
Billed as the Network’s “next big primetime leading man,” Alden is currently seen on GMA’s high-rating telebabad program One True Love as the love-struck Tisoy opposite Louise delos Reyes.
Meanwhile, Sarah, whose ticket to fame came when she won as Starstuck V’s Ultimate Female Survivor in 2010, shines bright as one of Richard Gutierrez’s love interest in the primetime show Makapiling Kang Muli proving that she is worthy of the title.
Kris, another product of the artista-search Starstruck, already appeared in a number of successful afternoon and primetime shows, the last of which includes the Afternoon Prime drama Hiram na Puso. Her next show will feature her in an exciting love triangle with long-time love team partner Aljur Abrenica and Rhian Ramos.
Bela also just finished working on the soap Hiram na Puso before she embarks on her next project with GMA. Last year, she was awarded as Miss Friendship and Media’s Darling in the Asian Super Model Contest held in China.
GMA Artist Center organized a special meet and greet with their fans several weeks ago in Party Pilipinas that truly helped in the success of the Team GMA cover.
The Team GMA MEGA July cover is still available in leading news and magazine stands nationwide.
