Andrea teases: “Hi, Jakob. If you’re watching, I’m single now”

“Drag You and Me” star Andrea Brillantes is smitten by Ina Raymundo’s son Jakob Poturnak, as revealed in her latest YouTube vlog uploaded on Monday, August 21. 

In the video, the 20-year-old actress could not hide her admiration for the 19-year-old baseball player during their game of “Date or Pass” with her three other friends.

Similar to the typical “Totropahin o jojowain” game, names of guys would be presented one by one, which the participants may either comically reject or nod on to dating. 

When Jakob’s name made it to the conversation, Andrea admits: “I would definitely date. Gusto ko lang sabihin na nagpakilala siya sa akin. I was with Bea. Kaso ka-holding hands ko yung ex ko nun. Tapos nagpakilala siya sa akin. Sabi niya, ‘Hey, I’m Jakob.’ 

Andrea emphasizes that she finds Jakob visually attractive, while following it up with a tease: “Hi, Jakob. If you’re watching, I’m single now.”

During the game, Andrea has also given her nod to other male showbiz figures, including basketball players Kobe Paras and Kai Sotto, Jericho Rosales’ son Santino Rosales, and Ian Veneracion’s son Draco Veneracion. 

Meanwhile, she passed on dating a handful, including actors Donny Pangilinan, Miguel Tanfelix, and singer Juan Karlos Labajo.

Also included in the list is Aga Muhlach and Charlene Gonzalez’s son, Andres, whom she admittedly says that she used to have a big crush on. However, she claims to have long outgrown the attachment. 

She says: “Na-outgrow ko yung crush ko sa kanya. Nawawala na lang.

Tapos naging friends ko na rin kasi ang friends niya. Pero, for some reason, our paths kasi, never nag-cross. Never ko siyang nakita, mga once or twice lang

“So, baka yung universe na yung nagsasabi na ‘No.’”

Who is Jakob Poturnak? 

Jakob Poturnak is the second child of Ina Raymundo and Canadian-Ukrainian Brian Poturnak.

According to an exclusive interview with Manila Bulletin, the six-foot Baseball player is not planning to follow his mother’s footsteps, as he is busy forging a name in the world of baseball.

Jakob has currently secured a college scholarship grant in the United States—exclusively playing for the Xavier Musketeers at Xavier University Canada. 

His acceptance pans to a bigger dream of being drafted by one of the prominent teams Toronto Blue Jays, which Ina reveals is Jakob’s favorite baseball team. 

However, when the prospect of a major league baseball team was brought up, Jakob reveals he  wants to equip himself first with more experience. 

“Honestly, it’s too early to say. To be drafted into major league baseball is an honor, but I want to gain more training first with Xavier University, win games for them, and play baseball with my new team, the Xavier Musketeers.”
