Everyone was excited with the announcement that JM de Guzman is staging a comeback to show business with a leading role for ‘Precious Hearts Romances: Araw Gabi.’
See, it will be JM de Guzman’s first TV appearance in two years!
However, since the heartthrob isn’t tied to a loveteam yet everyone was wondering who JM’s leading lady might be for the TV show.
Well, all speculations came to an end when it was announced that former PBB housemate Barbie Imperial landed the role. It is not surprising given that Barbie’s a fine star, but did you know she had to vie with a lot of other good actresses to land on the role?
Well, meet the women who tried their luck in landing the role of JM de Guzman’s leading lady:
