If my sources in the ad agency are quite precise with the dope, Zanjoe Marudo’s tv commercial will be released today, synchronically in all tv stations. It’s a soda commercial for this lanky 24-year old underwear-model-turned-comedian. Zanjoe Marudo, who shot to fame in Big Brother [Celebrity Edition] has a tremendous following among the Great Unwashed. Probably this could be due to the fact that they have identified or empathized with his oafish and unpolished ways [inside the Big Brother house, his boorish manners often got Big Brother’s ire and attention]. Regardless of such, Zanjoe Marudo has gone a long way from a struggling model to an actor and product endorser.
The local edition of Big Brother recently announced on the show that on 19 April, “Basketball Hunk” Bruce Quebral will board a plane to Slovenia and room in with that country’s BB edition. Bruce, who knows nothing about the swap until he boards the plane, will be in Slovenia for a week. Methinks that would be awfully traumatic; imagine, of all horrors, being told that you will be thrown into where-the-heck-is-Slovenia when you are already on the airplane! According to the Slovenian Big Brother management, they selected Bruce for the inter-country swap [one Slovenian girl, Tina, will join Pinoy Big Brother] because of his good looks as there are not enough handsome guys in the BB house. Here’s hoping a more liberal
Slovenian house will show Bruce in more ways we can imagine.
