Bea Alonzo took some time to answer the web’s most searched question about her in a new vlog.
While most of her fans know about how she started in showbiz, the 33-year-old went on a trip down memory lane to talk about her humble beginnings as she answered a question about how she discovered.
Although it was at a beauty pageant where she got first noticed, it was inside an elevator at ABS-CBN’s Talent Center where former Star Magic Head Mariole Alberto asked her to try and join showbiz.
“I was discovered in a beauty contest. Nakakahiya. I joined this contest in Pasig called Mutya Ng Pasig, Binibining Santolan back in 2001 and then one of the judges there was Mr. Oscar Peralta,” she said.
“He is a designer and best friend niya si Archie Ilagan who became my manager. And then he made me audition sa ABS-CBN Talent Center pa nu’ng time na ‘yun. Hindi pa Star Magic,” she added.
“Nakasakay ko sa elevator si Ms. Mariole Alberto and she asked me if I wanted to audition and the rest is history,” she continued.
Meanwhile, Bea Alonzo also talked about “Four Sisters and A Wedding” which she considers as a special project to her.
“This is a special project for me because it like became a cult favorite. Hanggang ngayon maraming memes about it. Parang most memeable ata na pelikula ito,” she said.
Admitting that she didn’t expect the film to go big, she said: “Sa totoo lang, at that time, we didn't know it would be this big — bakit ngayon nagkaroon na ng Four Sisters Before The Wedding, the prequel of “Four Sisters and a Wedding.”
“It occurred to me that I was a real Bobbie. So nakarelate talaga ako totally sa character ni Bobbie,” she added.
