Local showbiz is definitely buzzing with preparations for the upcoming Star Magic Ball—from deciding what to wear to securing a date.
Here's a list of the sweetest and most public proposals, so far:
Edward Barber and Maymay Entrata
Fans went crazy as actor Edward Barber got down on one knee and asked his leading lady, Maymay Entrata, to be his date for the Star Magic Ball.
The two former Pinoy Big Brother housemates were playing the "Bawal Kiligin Challenge" on a recent episode of Magandang Buhay when Edward suddenly popped the question.
Edward also gave Maymay a lucky charm for her bracelet: "You said you want to remember the moment, so I got you a charm that you can put on your bracelet—a camera [charm]."
Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador
Rumored real-life couple Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador were all over social media these past few days because of Elmo's creative proposal.
The young matinee idol was filmed serenading Janella to the tune of Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight." Elmo also prepared a poem for his leading lady which expressed his intent to ask her to the ball: "To waste this opportunity would be a pity. Princess, will you go to the ball with me?"
Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo
The viewers of Tonight With Boy Abunda got all kilig when host Boy Abunda quizzed Pinoy Big Brother alum, Marco Gallo, if he already asked his love team partner, Kisses Delavin, to the Star Magic Ball. What resulted was an impromptu public proposal in front of a live audience.
"Kung sakali, papayagan mo [ba] akong maging partner mo sa Star Magic Ball?" asked Marco.
"I just want to ask if he really wants me to," said Kisses. "Because for me, there's no problem. If he wants me to, then I will. Pero I want to make sure that he really wants me to. I don't want that it's just imposed," she continued.
After a few moments, Kisses finally agreed to go with Marco to the ball: "I would give him a chance. Yes."
Maris Racal and Iñigo Pascual
Iñigo Pascual's proposal to Maris Racal was a bit simpler compared to the others, but gutsy nonetheless. The singer-actor asked his leading lady to go to the ball with him through Twitter—for all of his 442k followers to see!
The Star Magic Ball will be held at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel on September 30, Saturday.
