MANILA – Joshua Garcia admitted to one of his fellow housemates that he indeed got jealous when college basketball star Jeron Teng visited Jane Oineza inside the “Pinoy Big Brother” (PBB) house.
Teng, who was rumored to be a suitor of Oineza even before the reality show, was the last of the surprise visitors the show prepared for the actress’ 18th birthday.
Speaking to Loisa Andalo two days after Oineza’s debut as shown in the Monday episode of “PBB,” Garcia said: “Masakit pakinggan yung mga ganun… Minsan nagseselos [ako].”
To which, Andalo replied: “Kasi sa labas talaga, si Jeron talaga yung ano niya dun. Kaya nung pumasok… tinatanong ko din si Jane kung may gusto ba siya sayo, sabihin niya. Sabi niya wala naman daw. Parang ikaw yung may something sa kanya. Kaya doon ko nalaman na si Jeron yung gusto niya.”
According to Garcia, he felt that the actress forgot about him when Teng was around. He also expressed that he will not be investing any feelings if Oineza does not show him any signs that she’s also interested in him.
“Siyempre ako, hindi naman talaga ako magbibigay ng, yung feelings ko—siyempre nagbibigay din siya ng signs na [baka may something],” he said.
It was something which Garcia also told “Kuya” while he was in the confession room.
“Base sa nakikita kong pinapakita niya sa akin, feeling ko meron [siyang feelings para sa akin]. Feeling ko din hindi niya po sasabihin yun. Hindi ko po hawak yung buhay niya kaya hindi alam kung aamin siya or wala naman pala talaga,” he said.
Later in the episode, Oineza finally decided to talk to Garcia to settle any issues.
“Iba yung nakita ko sa inyong pagkakaibigan,” Garcia told Oineza.
But the actress maintained there is nothing romantic between her and Teng yet.
“Sa akin, friends lang muna kasi focus muna siyempre siya sa career niya and ako din sa career ko. Pero lagi siya nag-i-invite. Nakwento ko yun kila Loisa kaya siguro kinikilig sila,” she explained.
Oineza, meantime, assured Garcia that he felt his “presence” during her debut and she is grateful that he became part of it.
