Lucky stans got a once-in-a-lifetime experience to date the members of P-Pop group SB19 through mobile network TM’s new reality dating series.
Titled “Mad Rush To Your Crush,” the Globe Studios-produced show is the first online reality dating series in the country for the “Ultimate Pinoy Stans.”
The Baninay Bautista-hosted YouTube series — which premiered on Monday, June 21, also features another P-Pop group, The Juans.
The said show brought together eight lucky fans who get to live in one bubble for three days together with the members of SB19 and The Juans.
In the first episode of the show, the fans went through a challenge where they had to make DIY costumes out of random items inside a number of boxes within 10 minutes.
After completing the first task, the fans showcased their works and walked through an outdoor runway as part of the challenge. Here, the members of The Juans and SB19 judged them through the following criteria: Kwela Factor, Kilig Factor, Kapatiran Factor, and X Factor.
While those who got eliminated have yet to be announced in the upcoming episode of the show, both SB19 and The Juans chose one member each from the two separate groups of 4s who got granted immunity for elimination from the competition.
“I feel so blessed to be part of this program and mapili po na unang mabigyan ng chance,” said Sharona, a certified Juanista from Hagonoy, Bulacan who got spared from taking part in the elimination process.
Sharing what made her become a fan of SB19, Sharina said: “Naging fan po ako ng The Juans dahil na-inspire po ako music nila. And dahil po sa mga story na binibigay nila sa amin, sa genuine love nila sa fans, and sa overflowing na pagmamahal nila sa amin dahil kung gaano po namin sila sinusuportahan, eh ganu’n din po sila sumuporta sa dreams and aspirations naming mga fans.”
Meanwhile, an A’TIN from Cainta, Rizal named Leinel Tiglao said she feels overwhelmed for getting chosen to be the recipient of the immunity.
“I love it. I am overwhelmed to get this honor. Thank you so much SB19 for choosing me,” Leineil said as she shares her reaction upon getting the immunity granted to her.
A die-hard fan of one of SB19’s members, Stell, Leineil said she couldn’t be any happier to be part of the series which allows her to go on a date with her stan.
“Sumali ako sa “Mad Rush To Your Crush” because as a fangirl, sobrang laking opportunity neto na maka-date ang idol ko,” Leinel said.
