Maria Ozawa: “He’s so cute”

David Licauco’s viral “Family Feud” answer has already reached the radar of Japanese businesswoman and former adult film figure Maria Ozawa. 

The 29-year-old actor had the internet on a good uproar after his guesting in GMA-7’s weekday game show “Family Feud” on Monday, January 8, 2024.

The internet buzz followed after host Dingdong Dantes asked David to name one of the more famous Marias in the Philippines.

Dingdong asks, “Fill in the blank, Maria?” to which David quickly replied with “Ozawa.” 

Humoring things further, Dingdong reverts, “Bagay lang naman kasi Japanese ang theme natin ngayon.

As the other players jumped into laughter, the camera briefly pans to Barbie Forteza, David’s on-screen partner, who was laughing just as much.

In the end, David’s team emerged victorious and took home Php 200,000 jackpot prize from the game show. His teammates include “Black Rider” star Dustin Yu and friends Biggie Lee and Kurt Ong. 

David’s team fought against Barbie’s team composed of Barbie’s father Tony Forteza, makeup artist Fatima Mercado, and personal stylist Janra Raroque. 

David and Barbie are set to headline GMA-7’s upcoming period piece series “Pulang Araw” with Alden Richards and Sanya Lopez.

Maria Ozawa react to David Licauco 

Garnering million views shortly after, Maria Ozawa, herself, has reacted and uploaded David’s viral video as her Instagram story. 

It comes with a caption that reads, “He’s so cute [laughing and heart emojis]” 

Maria is a former adult personality who once tried her chances in the Philippine entertainment industry. 

She had a relationship with Kapuso actor Jose Sarasola, who revealed in 2022 that they already called it quits after dating for four years. 

During his guesting in “Surprise Guest with Pia Arcangel,” Jose says that distance has been the primary strain of their fallout. Unable to travel and see each other due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they both decided to part ways.
