Here are the 12 finalists of GMA-7 and Coca Cola’s Ride To Fame: Yes To Your Dreams.
Ava Jane Jugueta
She is a real life mannequin who can sing, dance and play the guitar. She even has a string of compositions in her music suitcase. Ava Jane is the only girl in the bunch who loves to read FHM (or Men’s magazine) and can even be on its cover soon!
Rosan Katlea Reodica
Rosan Reodica from Cavite, or Osan to her friends, is a Clothing Technology student from the University of the Philippines. Her flair for fashion design is just a step towards becoming a celebrity. She can absolutely sing and certainly has the moves like that of a Spice Girl.
The list takes us north with our next female finalist. Pamela Bondoc can definitely sing and she plays the guitar with passion. She loves Billy Joe Crawford and she moves like him too. This power dancer of the posse of twelve hails from Baguio City. She’s cool, calm and charming with the curves of a zigzag road.
Qwyncy Rei Siclot
Next on our female list is a girl with a pretty face with and attractive voice. A petite mestiza with the allure of a vixen, this Marilyn Monroe version of the final twelve is Qwyncy Rei Siclot. She is indeed a true manifestation that the Cebuanos have what it takes to be a star.
Francesca Maureen Lagura
Davao would be proud to have another Juris Fernandez (of MYMP). They’ve got their chance with Francesca Lagura, who not only sings well but also plays the guitar. Could she be the next Barbie Almabis or Kitchie Nadal? This female guitarist also has a killer smile and delivers delightful dance moves.
Ayerst Musique Cabalteja
The cutest gal in band of twelve is actually a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to playing musical instruments. She bangs the drum kit like a pro, strums the guitar like an expert, toys the keyboards with finesse, plays bass, sings and composes her own songs. Her name says it all. She is Musique Cabaltesa. A true-blue musician and performer rolled in one.
Arron Cadawas is Ride to Fame’s pretty boy from Quezon City. Dreaming of becoming the next Jay-R, he already sings and moves like the Philippine’s RnB Prince. A total performer whose moves are swift and a singer whose voice is slick.
Giuliano Franz Comia
Speaking of slick… Next on our list is a cute version of Johnny Bravo but without the attitude. This younger version of Michael Buble is into standard music and retro fashion. Giu Comia has that charisma of a star in the making. Bravo!
Alchris Galura was named best actor in the Cinemalaya 2006 movie Batad sa sapang palay. The final twelve’s funny guy bears a cheek-to-cheek smile. He loves the Beatles, the 1960’s music scene and kick-boxing. He’s an athlete, an actor and an aspiring total performer.
The Twelve’s rocker at heart with the boy-next-door looks is Daryl Lagos, often compared to Dennis Trillo. He sings and performs a la Bamboo Manalac of the band Bamboo. This CEU tourism student also writes his own songs and plays the drums.
Carl Christian Guevarra
Gary V. look-a-like, Carl Guevarra, dreams of becoming the next Mr. Pure Energy. He sings, dances and plays the piano/keyboard like his idol, and even plays the drums on the side. This 19 year old Bulace?o is taking up Communication Arts in U.P. Baguio.
The male finalist who traveled farthest for the competition is the half-Filipino, half-Chinese Alexander “Lex” Uy, who was born and raised in Davao. Lex was born in a musically inclined family, having a Music major for a Mom. He already sings and dances for a living and plays the guitar in his spare time.
