GMANetwork.com got to chitchat with Kapuso Primetime Prince Miguel Tanfelix before he performed “Twerk It Like Miley” at the Candy Fair 2015. The young actor talked about his first hosting stint as a journey host in the longest reality-based artista search, StarStruck.
He said, “It’s good to be back! Ito [ang] pinaka-first [hosting project ko.” The Kapuso cutie admitted that he felt nervous taping for the pilot episode, ‘Yung una talaga, sobrang kinakabahan ako pero ‘yung [sunod-sunod na ay] sakto lang [kasi] medyo na-enjoy ko na siya.”
Looking back, the 16-year-old was once part of StarStruck Kids in 2004 where he finished as “First Prince.” He flashed his sweet smile while recalling his showbiz journey, from the moment he started up to this day.
“Masaya kasi ‘di ba nakikita mong nagpo-progress ka [at] ang pinaghirapan mo before,” he shared. Miguel still remembers the feeling of being on the same stage, “Before, ikaw ‘yung nandito sa stage na ito [at] ngayon ikaw pa rin pero as a host na. Masaya siya and parang exciting din kasi mauulit mismo kung paano ‘yung ginagawa niyo before. Makaka-relate ka rin sa mga hopefuls.”
Evenif he is now one of the segment hosts, the Maybe This Time star was also clueless when the Dream 14 and Believe 14 for this batch of hopefuls were announced. He reacted, “Sobrang laking twist na ginawa ng StarStruck and nagulat nga talaga ako nung nakita ko sa Instagram na may ganun pala. Sobrang big move talaga ‘yan [at] sobrang [nakaka-excite] ‘yun para sa ating mga televiewers.”
Miguel also confirmed that he indeed knows the StarStruck hopeful who hails from Cavite. “Si Princess, kilala ko siya. Schoolmate kami before nung high school pa ako. Gulat nga ako nang malaman ko na kasali pala siya eh,” he said.
