Marlo Mortel admits being heartbroken after TNT loss: ‘Am I really worth a win?’


After getting another chance to get back into the running for Tawag ng Tanghalan via the Grand Resbak round, Marlo Mortel shared his thoughts after he fell short once again with his scores. The talented actor-singer couldn’t help but post how he felt on his Instagram account last November 12. 

He wrote:

Not gonna lie, my heart breaks.

After pouring my heart & soul, results showed I got an average of 88.4 for this song, having me eliminated on the first day of Resbak.

I’ve always asked myself, “What’s wrong with me?” for I can’t even bag a small win after a decent performance.

Age 16, I joined Are you the next big star on GMA and I qualified as one of the 115 contenders. After my performance, Judge said “I believe that you could be the next big star” but I didn’t make it to the next round. It was painful, but it’s my first competition. So maybe I just need more experience?

I was then told to join StarStruck where I reached the Top 30 but got cut. Same with X Factor, where I sacrificed a lot to join, but got eliminated at the Bootcamp round. I just never make it to the Live shows. But I told myself keep growing, maybe I’m just not good enough yet?

As a celebrity, I was invited to join We Love OPM where our group “Power Chords” coached by @nyoyvolante always lose, we even got a 75 at the Finals after all the hard work. But maybe we just don’t blend well together?

Recently, I was invited to join the TNT Celebrity Edition. I felt I was ready, even though I was sick, I got great feedback for my performance of “Invisible” but got beaten by Ethel Booba’s rendition of “Help.” Just my luck I guess? I finally gave a good one but got lined up with a Singing Champion.

Thankful though! Yesterday, I was given the chance to Resbak where I felt like I finally gave strong performances but I got the lowest combined scores. I thought I was numb ‘cause I’m used to losing. But why are people, contestants, celebrities, staff, etc. continuously coming up to me telling me that I deserved to win? I was also trending for people are protesting about this loss. I’m confused, so am I really worth a win?

I know it’s not about winning, but sometimes a loser just needs a small deserved win to get up & keep going. I guess the big WIN is there are more people who believes in us every time we don’t anymore. Kaya salamat sa mga taong naniniwala at nagmamahal. There’s always a reason to move forward”.
