On April 20 and 21, ABS-CBN is holding a one-stop grand audition event called Star Hunt at the Araneta Coliseum. This will give aspirants the chance to audition for their favorite Kapamilya reality shows such as Pinoy Big Brother, I Can See Your Voice, The Voice of the Philippines, Tawag ng Tanghalan, Dance Kids, Little Big Shots, and Pilipinas Got Talent as well as the chance to share their stories on Maalaala Mo Kaya.
During the press conference with director Laurenti Dyogi, he shared what they will be looking for in applicants, specifically for the top-rating show Pinoy Big Brother.
“Mahirap mag-create ng template. ‘Nung nahanap namin si Kim Chiu, kung titignan mo siya ‘nung nag-audition siya, hindi siya mukhang magiging malaking artista. Maymay (Entrata) is also [one]. Melai (Cantiveros) is not your typical star, ‘di ba? Pero sila ‘yung minahal ng tao. Ang hinahanap namin, siyempre TV ‘to eh, ‘yung masarap panoorin sa TV. So ano bang pinanonood natin sa telebisyon? Ako sa sarili kong batayan, ang pinapanood ko, and I think I speak for some more people, ‘yung authentic. Kasi ‘pag reality show ‘yan, ayaw pa natin ‘nung umaarte,” he said.
“At least for PBB, ang kailangan diyan ‘yung personality mo eh masarap panoorin. May mga iba-ibang klaseng personalidad, may nakakatawang personalidad, may personalidad na parang Sam Milby na parang fish out of water that time kasi mga kasama niya lahat Pilipino. Siya hindi marunong mag-(Tagalog). Meron naman mga personalidad na nakakainis panoorin pero nakakadagdag siya ng anghang sa grupo. So kung PBB ‘yan, bumubuo ka ng isang cast o isang grupo ng housemates na iba-iba ng personalities para meron ganap,” Direk Lauren added, reiterating the need for various genuine characters.
What’s important, as Direk Lauren implied, is that you remain true to yourself. “You don’t really have to prepare for it because if you have the potential, we will be able to spot that. We will be able to see that and we will help you grow your potential and make you learn more skills so that hopefully, you become a star.”
