With his great physique, killer smile and steadfast attitude to persevere in show business, he is bound to grow as a first-rate actor given the proper training and exposure he will be getting from "Artista Academy."
In an interview after their live performance last Saturday's performance, he's disappointed in the results for he belongs to the bottom three. He admits that he has difficulties of speaking fluently in Tagalog since he were assigned to do the monologue during the live exam for acting.
There's a circulating photo last week of Benjo wearing a boxer shorts and he's in a cat walk. So we asked him if he's a regular contestant in any bikini contest. He said, "Nung nalaman ko na magaunderwear ako, ginawa ko talaga, nagdala ako ng sarili kong boxer briefs so hindi talaga ako pumayag na nakatrunks lang ako," said Benjo.
"Actually nga, kung pwede lang akong pumayag na magback-out sa fashion show, pero hindi talaga ako sumali sa isang bikini contest. Fashion show lang na napilitan na dahil nakapagrehearse na at marami kami, we are around 40 boys sa Cebu," he added.
Benjo belongs to the Bottom 3 this week. One of them (Brent, Chris and Benjo) will be kicked out in the first elimination night on Monday. You can still vote to save him by texting AA BENJO and send to 5656. "Artista Academy" airs weeknights at 9:00pm and Saturdays 8:30pm on TV5.
