121412-vhong_main.jpgVhong Navarro has come a long way after starting in showbiz as a member of the dance group Streetboys. Vhong has already established himself as an effective comedian and is currently one of the hosts of It’s Showtime and stars in the sitcom Toda Max with Angel Locsin and Robin Padilla.

However, in a recent interview, the dancer-actor shared that he almost gave up on showbiz. He revealed that his being part of Streetboys was accidental. “Kasi dalawa kaming magkaibigan, dalawang dance group ‘yan [kung saan] nag-audition [kami],” shared Vhong.

He continued that his friend was good-looking, but his advantage over his friend was he was a better dancer. “Hindi siya gaanong ganon [kahusay] so tinuturuan ko pa siya. Nung time na mag-audition ako tsaka siya magkaiba. Ako ‘yung napunta sa Streetboys siya ‘yung napunta sa isa [na dance group] na dapat dun ako. Siguro meant to be na mapunta [ako] roon [Streetboys] kasi pinagtiyagaan ako ni Direk Chito Roño (his manager) na talagang kahit mukhang hito ‘yan. Kasi ang payat ko no’n so kumbaga pinagtiyagaan niya talaga ako, kumbaga kahit medyo marunong na akong sumayaw noon talagang nag-training talaga kami. Kaya nagpapasalamat ako kay Direk Chito sa tiwala at pasensiya na kahit ganon ang itsura at pangangatawan ko no’n, tinanggap niya ako,” he related.

Direk Chito helmed the three-part Metro Manila Film Fest entry Shake, Rattle & Roll XIV where Vhong stars in one of the episodes. “Ako dito si Hunk. Isa akong boyfriend ni Kate (played by Lovi Poe). Nagkataon na nabuntis ko siya at may pangarap ako sa pamilya namin at that day ipakikilala ko siya sa parents biglang nangyari ang lahat.
