In today’s episode of “It’s Showtime,” Angelica Yap aka Ms. Pastillas’ admirers have a new addition, who came all the way from Ozamis City in Misamis Occidental. Twenty-three year old Richard Parojinog impressed viewers and the hosts of “Showtime” alike with his impressive talent in singing and his pasalubong, a lechon, which he bought all the way from his hometown.
In an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph, he shared his life before he became aware of Pastillas Girl.
“Okay naman, nag wo-work po ako sa Ozamis City Hall as staff tapos hindi ko inasahan na aabot ako sa ganito kasi nagtu-tweet lang naman ako para bang joke joke lang ‘yun pero nagustuhan ko talaga si Ms. Pastillas pero hindi ko inasahang mapansin kaya parang push na ‘to,” he said.
He also shared that he discovered Pastillas Girl before she even appeared on the noontime show.
“Nakita ko siya sa viral video ‘yung paano gumawa ng pastillas na attract ako sa kanya una palang nakita ko kasi parang napaka astig na babae, lakas ng personality, gusto ko kasi ng ganun, tapos simple lang totoong tao,” he shared.
Richard also revealed the traits that he likes about Pastillas Girl. “Simple lang siya manamit parang casual, simple lang talaga hindi siya magarang manamit tapos parang hindi ka nahihiya kapag pinuntahan mo siya ganun.”
He then shared that he’s been single for five years now and that the longest relationship he had lasted for two months only. When asked if he’s ready to enter a serious relationship he said, “Oo naman. Gusto ko nga e sana nga. Gusto ko na magseryoso.”
Is Pastillas Girl the one for Richard?
“Sana nga. Kilalanin ko muna siya kasi ang hirap naman kapag deretso deretso ‘di ba,” he said.
Since he has never been in a long term relationship, he was asked what lessons did he learn from his previous relationship that he can apply in his future love life.
“Kilalanin muna ng husto yung tao bago ka pumasok sa relasyon kasi baka yun yung ugat ng hindi magandang pagsasamahan kaya ganun magiging worse pa.”
He then revealed that if given a chance, “De-date ko siya. Getting to know each other, magbibigay ng flowers, cake.”
During the segment of It’s Showtime where they are trying to look for Mr. Pastillas, he said that he didn’t expect that Pastillas Girl will choose him as the person who has the best answers to the questions asked by the hosts.
“Kinilig ako sa sarili ko hindi ko in-expect na ako piliin niya ‘yung last question. Kinilig ako dun, ang saya ko kasi akala ko hindi niya ako pipiliin kasi nga baguhan lang ako ‘di ba yung dalawa kilala niya na,” he said.
Even though he’s competing with the other Pastillas boys, he said that he isn’t intimidated by them. “Magaling rin naman sila, di naman ako na te-threaten kanya kanyang diskarte nalang siguro.”
In the end, he thanked his instant fans who are supporting him on his journey to win Pastillas Girl’s heart.
“Hindi ko po in-expect to lahat sa mga sumu-suporta maraming salamat po at sana suportahan niyo lang ako palagi.”
