Ex-PBB Teen Clash housemates James Reid, Bret Jackson, and Ivan Dorschner are not in a rush to get their breaks in showbiz


Former housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash of 2010 James Reid, Bret Jackson, and Ivan Dorschner signed contracts as the newest endorsers of Jag Thug clothing line. In an interview following the contract signing, the three shared with PUSH.com.ph that they are working on the upcoming weekly teen drama series Good Vibes. Ivan said, "We have this new show under Direk Lauren'rsquo;s (Dyogi) team, it'rsquo;s entitled Good Vibes. The show is like 'lsquo;yung movie na Step Up na teleserye. Kasama namin sina Sam Concepcion, Arron Villaflor, Enrique Gil, and other new stars."

Fil-Australian James, who won as the Teen Big Winner for PBBTC, said he now better understands Tagalog but still finds it hard to speak the language. In Good Vibes, he will be playing the balikbayan cousin of Arron. "I'rsquo;ll be playing Spencer. I'rsquo;m Arron'rsquo;s cousin. I can'rsquo;t dance so I tried to join the crew so I can learn how to dance."

Bret has no Filipino blood but his stepmother is Pinay and they have been living in Dumaguete for seven years now. Though he won'rsquo;t be acting in Good Vibes, he was chosen to sing the theme song of the show, "All I Need is Love." He said he was very thankful for the opportunity to sing the show'rsquo;s theme song because his primary goal in showbiz is to sing and make music. Bret is still a guest VJ for MYX, a job he won during a competition held while they were all living inside the PBB house.

Good Vibes, or GV, tells the story of a group of teenagers who share a common passion for dancing. To gear up for their roles in the series, James and Ivan together with the other stars are undergoing dance workshops three times a week under renowned choreographer Maribeth Bichara.

Aside from dance workshops, James and Ivan are also continuing their acting classes at ABS-CBN. Since they are just newbies in the industry, the two understand that they may have to wait before they can be trusted with good acting roles. "We'rsquo;re just waiting for the right roles for us. Hindi naman agad agad we get the roles na sakto for us. We have to wait sometimes," Ivan explained. In Good Vibes, James will be paired with Devon Seron, while Ivan will be with Fretzie Bercede. Both Devon and Fretzie are also from PBB Teen Clash of 2010.
