MANILA, Philippines – Miss Universe 2011 third runner-up Shamcey Supsup showed a lighter side of herself as she talked about her showbiz crushes—Erik Santos and Jericho Rosales—in her guest appearance on “Gandang Gabi Vice” last Oct. 9.
The GenSan beauty said she’s had a crush on Erik when she was in college at the University of the Philippines-Diliman, where she graduated magna cum laude in Architecture.
“Sobrang gustung-gusto ko siyang kumanta. Parang idol, ganon,” said she.
Although she said she’s not the “fanatic type [na] ‘yung talagang sinusundan ko lahat ng shows,” Shamcey apparently had her fan girl moment of sorts with Erik.
“There was this poster of him sa may building sa UP tapos kinuha ko ‘yung poster niya. Sa Palma Hall [‘yun]—‘yung mga general education subjects dun ginagawa—nasa hallway siya [poster],” she recalled.
Asked if she had seen him in person, Shamcey answered in the affirmative.
The 25-year-old beauty queen looked to have turned pink when Vice mentioned Jericho as Shamcey’s other crush.
“Talagang inalam namin ‘yan sa mga dapat pagtanungan,” he said.
Apparently taken aback, Shamcey blurted, “Mga pahamak ‘yung mga ‘yon ah. Sino’ng nagsabi?”
Nevertheless, Shamcey revealed that she also had a crush on Jericho back in her college days.
“Before kasi, gusto ko talaga siyang makita in person,” she related.
Her wish apparently came true, having seen the Kapamilya actor during a Binibining Pilipinas event, as well as during the grand welcome number for her on “ASAP Rocks” last Sept. 25, where she was serenaded by Jericho along with Sam Milby and Luis Manzano.
When Vice asked, “Kung si Jericho Rosales ay nasa loob ng salamin, ano’ng sasabihin mo [sa kanya]?”
Shamcey responded timidly, saying, “Hi… Kumusta ka?”
What may well be the biggest surprise during the interview was when Jericho himself emerged on stage, eliciting a squeal from Shamcey.
Vice then teased her, “Ah kinikilig! Bakit teary-eyed ka?”
“Nakakahiya!” Shamcey exclaimed.
The singer-actor then handed her a bouquet of flowers and planted a soft kiss on her cheeks, generating cheers from the studio audience.
Still on teasing mode, Vice asked Shamcey, “Bakit ganun ang kinang ng mata mo, iba?”
“Kasi before talaga sabi ko, ‘Makikita ko kaya siya in person?’ Parang imposible,” said she.
“Eh now?” Vice queried.
“Everything is possible,” she responded.
Jericho then gave a message to Shamcey: “Well, congratulations, of course… I’m actually honored na nandito ako ngayon, na i-surprise kita at nabigyan ka ng flowers.
“I wish you well sa lahat ng mga responsibilities na gagampanan mo. And you made us proud, so maraming-maraming salamat. All the best to you! God bless you, of course!”
With her mega-watt smile, Shamcey told Jericho, “Thank you.”
