I first saw Phil Younghusband on TV in a showbiz-oriented talk show on GMA7. To gain popularity mileage, the story this talk show concocted was that Phil, a popular football/soccer player based in the UK saw Rhian Ramos’s photo on the internet, got smitten, and then came to the Philippines to pursue her. When Phil was being interviewed, it was obvious that the press release wasn’t true–para may angle lang at mapag-usapan. Then he was almost never heard from again, until the rise of the Azkals.
When I saw Phil again (this time even more popular than Rhian Ramos), I just stared and stared on his face NOT because I was one of the many girls with a huge crush on him, but because he reminded me so much of someone…I kept on thinking and thinking and thinking, until it hit me: tisoy version siya ni Gilbert!
Gilbert is one of our utility personnel for several years (read more about him here: Helper Humor). He gained popularity last summer among our UPCAT review students–he is known by our students as Kuya Atindans. This is because he gave and collected the attendance sheets of our UPCAT review students. And every time he hands out and collects the attendance sheet, he would tell the students: “Atindans!” He endeared himself to many students that one student, when asked what things he liked most about BRAIN TRAIN, answered: “How Kuya Gilbert says, ‘atindans’ (although nahiya si Gilbert and sa later batches hindi na umiimik, derecho bigay at kolekta na lang ng attendance).”
Anyway, I’m sure Gilbert’s fans will all the more love him upon realizing that they’ve been seeing Phil Younghusband’s long lost twin last summer!
Here’s a face off, by the way. Sino’ng mas gwapo?
Pahabol: Hindi lang football superstar ang deadringer ni Kuya Gilbert! Pati NBA superstar, kamukha niya rin! It was Randy who told me about it (malay ko ba sa NBA na yan no!)…si Blake Griffin daw of Clippers.
And here’s their own face-off:
Bongga ka, Gilbert! International heartthrob athletes ang caliber mo!
Tell me what you think!
