"We Really Liked Each Other But I Missed My Chance"
"I wanted to make a move, but I wasn't ready to put all my feelings out there for the whole world to see?I didn't think a reality TV show was the best venue for that."

Mikee Lee opened up about his biggest heartache—and how he put a stop to the sadness.

Kim Chiu and I were housemates on a reality TV show. We were paired with each other even before entering the house—based on our interviews, the show's producers thought we'd be compatible. I found her very pretty, and I wanted to get to know her better.

On our first day inside the house, all of us were asked who our crushes were. All the guys liked this other girl, and I was the only one who liked Kim. When it was her turn to answer, she said she liked me, too! From that moment, we both knew we had chemistry, and we became close friends. I liked how she was so talented and hardworking, and we'd often bond by singing and playing the guitar. I wanted to make a move, but I wasn't ready to put all my feelings out there for the whole world to see—I didn't think a reality TV show was the best venue for that.

I wanted to wait until I could tell her everything in a more private setting. I guess I was scared that too many people were watching our love story unfold, and I was too afraid of what other people would say. I never got the chance to tell her I liked her inside the house; I only got to mention it in passing a few months after the show's finale. But by then, she was already part of a love team that would become one of the biggest and most popular in showbiz.

I'd like to believe that if Kim and I had met in the outside world, things would have worked out between us.

I'd like to believe that if Kim and I had met in the outside world, things would have worked out between us. It took time to clear my head, but I can honestly say I'm okay now. I look out for her, and she knows she can come to me anytime. More than anything, we're friends. These days, I know better: When you like a girl, just tell her. You never know what could happen.
