Cristine Reyes and Marco Gumabao: from “Totropahin” to “Jojowain!”
Trending new couple Cristine Reyes and Marco Gumabao have joined the fun after netizens resurfaced the former’s old interview about the latter’s chances of making her fall for him.
It was Reyes who reacted first by posting a photo with Gumabao on her Instagram story on April 27, 2023, with the line “Def not tropa anymore.”
Just a few hours later, Gumabao reposted the same photo and added the line, “Hindi na couga… di ko na itutuloy.”

The “receipt” which circulated online on April 26, 2023, was from a “Tonight With Boy Abunda” episode in 2019.
In that interview, Reyes was challenged to do the “Totropahin o Jojowain” game where a list of people was lined up and the person will be asked if they will treat them as a friend or a lover.
The photo of Gumabao was then flashed on the screen.
“Si Marco, we’re friends. Ang bata pa ni Marco. Ano ‘ko, cougar?” she said during the 2019 interview.
The clip resurfaced after Gumabao penned a short but sweet message for his girlfriend on Instagram.
“Ay! May ganito pa lang ganap. Ok lang yan, kapag umibig ka, age doesn’t matter naman as long as single naman kayo pareho … Enjoy,” a netizen said.
Gumabao earlier said they are currently just enjoying each other’s company. Nonetheless, he categorically stated that what they have now is something “special.”
“Ayoko munang magsabi ng mga label-label na ganyan. For me, labels put a lot of pressure on your relationship. Basta ako, kaming dalawa, happy kami.”

In the end, Mina is happy that her sister found a new love.
“Please take care and love my sister, okay? Make her happy. Please love also her daughter kasi siyempre may plus one na agad yan,” she said about Gumabao.
