Before stepping into the limelight, many celebrities have their own juicy stories to tell about how they found their way to show business. Some of them had really planned to enter the industry, and some of them just had the luck (and artistahin features to back them up) of being randomly scouted by agents from big entertainment agencies.
Bea Alonzo’s story before being a huge celebrity is quite an interesting topic. A lot of us probably do not know this about her, but the ‘First Love’ lead actress was actually in the pageant scene before she was discovered as an actress! Now one of the most in-demand names in the industry, we wonder what was life like on the stage as a beauty queen and how it can be compared to the life of a superstar.
Photos of Bea in a beauty pageant has surfaced online and caught the attention of many people, and understandably so. It is not common knowledge that the actress had once dipped her toe in the world of pageantry.
The netizen who uploaded the photo seems to be the friend of the lady in the middle. She captioned the post with a question, “Melody T. Cruz ikaw n tong nasa gitna? Kalaban mo si bea alonzo nuong ms.santolan!”
The lady, who was apparently one of the contestants of the pageant, confirmed that it is indeed the famous Bea Alonzo that she competed with during Bb. Santolan 2001. She even posted another photo of the coronation of the said pageant.
Looking at the photo, it is not surprising why Bea has caught the attention of the crowd. She looked absolutely radiant and stunning, just like she is now. According to the co-contestant, Bea was one of the contestants who were chosen to audition on Star Circle. “jan po siya nadiscover.. siya po un lucky girl na napili samin to audition star circle. Swerte nya..,” Melody said.
Now, we all know how that turned out.
With the success of her iconic movie with John Lloyd Cruz, ‘One More Chance’, Bea Alonzo is considered to be one of the top actresses in the country. Her beauty and outer appearance might have been the reason for her entry in showbiz, but it is her unparalleled talent in acting and work ethic that made her who she is right now.
From being an aspiring beauty queen to one of the brightest stars on television, Bea Alonzo is definitely destined to live her life under the spotlight.
Here are some of the netizens’ reaction:
