    Mga faney… Buhay na buhay ang dugo.. 41m retweets to 700k vote laki difference. Anyways happy ako for Maine at the same time maganda rin buhayin ang career at okay yan since may movie sya sa mmff. Pero sana hindi lang sa vote pati sa ratings ng mga ginagawa nya projects para magmukhang credible nman ang results.

  7. Mamatey na naman sa inggit mga fans ng ABS-CBN!
    Mas madali kasing mang bash sa achievement ng iba kaysa maki compete o kaya’y tanggapin na may mas magaling sa idolo nila.
    Congratulations Maine, you’re definitely Asia’s Sweetheart!

  8. Todo effort na naman ang GMA7 na la ocean.
    Itong si Maine ang may power sa ganyan. Nakakamiilion tweets daw pero wala namang nanonood sa mga palabas nya sa TV at sa sine. Hahaha.
