In Jennylyn Mercado’s latest vlog, she teams up with her boyfriend, Dennis Trillo, and her friends to play a game of volleyball against pro athletes and a special guest. On Team Pro are volleyball players Amanda Villanueva, Ella De Jesus, Jamie Lavitoria, Jem Ferrer, and Amy Ahomiro, plus actress Julia Barretto. You’ll recall that Julia was the volleyball captain of Team Blue at the Star Magic All-Star Games, and Amy shared her expertise with the celebs participating in the competition.
Meanwhile, Jennylyn and Dennis are joined by actress Shaira Diaz, hairstylist Eva Evaristo, and styling assistants Karel Mae Rimes and “Pretty” Shaina on Team Bessie.
Jennylyn’s team tried their best, but in the end, Team Pro won, 21-8. Though they lost the game, they did have winning lines like Jennylyn’s game plan: “’Pag ‘di ko nasalo, saluhin niyo.” LOL!
Behind the scenes was an all-star team as well: commentator and radio DJ Rico Robles and referees Mitch Salvo, Herbert Matimatico, and Foyee Gonzal. You can watch the full game below:
The volleyball game is the latest of Jennylyn’s “Jen Survives” series, where she takes on different challenges like going undercover with Dennis as "blind" singers at the LRT-1, teaching zumba, and playing computer game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
