If you are a celebrity on your teens, there is a surefire way of staying in the business. Be a part of a hit love team. Yes, these tandems are definitely staples in the film and television industry for the sole reason that everyone is a sucker for romance.
Let’s face it, even our moms and dads fell in love with the famous love teams of their generation. This is evident on how Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta still gather the same amount of kilig they used to elicit from their audiences. This is also reflected on how crazy we go about Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino’s cute clips online.
Accept it or not, the Filipino audience takes interest in romance a lot. Nowhere else in the world can you find celebrity on-screen partners with monikers derived from combining the names of the tandem. There’s KathNiel, and LizQuen, and JoshLia and a lot more.
Being a part of a love team secures you a spot in showbiz because it is what people like to follow. We take interest in their daily lives, and keeping up with the real score between them. We watch their Instagram stories and keep an eye on any of their social media updates in the hopes that our on-screen love teams will eventually lead to becoming real-life couples, much like the case of James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
There are times, however, when things go a different route for these love teams. Sometimes, people’s interest shift and sometimes TV networks experiment in pairing celebrities, breaking off some love teams. Just like what happened with Maris Racal and Inigo Pascual.
We all know that former PBB Teens housemate Maris Racal has been consistently paired with singer, actor, and son to Piolo, Inigo Pascual. The two have been making quite some noise about their love team in the past months, and they have actually developed a fan base for themselves.
Recently, however, Maris created some commotion online by posting a photo of her and her alleged new love team, Jon Lucas.
We know Jon Lucas as being a member of It’s Showtime’s Hashtags. We have been wowed by his amazing dancing skills and we’ve also had a glimpse of his acting prowess in some cameo roles.
While many Inigo-Maris fans have been disheartened by these photos, a lot of the followers of Jon and Maris are rather excited for this new endeavor for their idols. After all, good things have always come out of switching things up.
