FORMER beauty queen Bianca Manalo says “Happy, Yipee, Yehey!” co-host John Prats is boyfriend material.

After the controversial break-up of John and Kapuso singer Rachel Anne Go, the two co-hosts are more vocal with each other’s feelings.

According to John, Bianca is his longtime crush; while the beauty queen said she is flattered with John’s statement.

When Bianca was asked to comment on reports that she was spotted with John leaving the movie house with John’s arms on her shoulder, the TV host refused to confirm it.

“Basta ang masasabi ko lang ngayon, eh, masaya kami, magkaibigan kami at ini-enjoy namin ang company ng bawat isa (What I can only say is we are both very happy, we are friends and we enjoy each other’s company).”

“I will not confirm nor deny anything kasi mahirap naman magsalita ng tapos. Antayin na lang natin ang pwedeng mangyari sa takdang panahon. So basta ngayon, masaya kami (I will not confirm nor deny anything because I can’t just conclude on the matter. Let’s just wait on what will happen, but right now, we are both very happy).”

Bianca shared that she feels giddy and thrilled when John says good things about her.

“May ibang dating, may ibang impact para magkaroon kami ng kilig din sa ibang tao.”

She added that John has lots of good qualities.

“Kung sino man ang babae, eh, maswerte talaga kasi totoong tao, mabait at mapagmahal sa pamilya, responsable (Whoever he chooses is very lucky because he does not pretend to be someone else, very kind, loves his family very much and very responsible).”

When asked if this closeness will soon lead to romance, the beauty queen is very adamant in giving her thoughts on the matter.

“Abangan… but sabihin na lang natin isa siya sa mga nagpapasaya sa akin (Let’s just wait. But he makes me happy).” (MNS)
