The Candy Teen Con 2016 is almost here and we're counting down the days to the biggest teen event in the country! Aside from the awesome workshops you can learn from at the event, what we're also excited about is for you to meet this year's batch of Candy Cuties led by one of this year's cover men Jack Reid.
To make you more excited about the Cuties parade happening on Saturday, we've rounded up a few Candy Cuties who've made their names in the biz before and after gracing the pages of Candy. Recognize some of them? Who knows you might be meeting the future matinee idol, right?
- Ivan Dorschner
After his stint in the Pinoy Big Brother house, Ivan was featured as a Candy Cutie together with his batchmates James Reid, Bret Jackson, and Ryan Bang. He lived for a while in LA this year, but he got back in the country this year. Are you excited to see more of him? We know we are!
- Kobe Paras
Before he went to the United States to study and train as a professional basketball player, Kobe first appeared in Candy with his older (and equally handsome!) brother Andre. Right now, he's training with NCAA Division 1 school Creighton University in Nebraska.
- Richard Juan
This cutie from UP Diliman appeared in Candy before he became an SM Youth Ambassador and a housemate on Pinoy Big Brother: 737. Now, he's a recognizable face in the country. Catch him perform at the Candy Teen Con this weekend!
- Ruru Madrid
Just a few years ago, Ruru was just starting out in the biz. But this year, with love team Gabbi Garcia, he's made a name for himself when he was chosen to play the role of Ybarro in Encantadia.
- Manolo Pedrosa
We were really surprised to see one of our fave Cuties on Pinoy Big Brother: All In, but we knew that after his stint on the show, he'll make it in the biz. True enough, the Candy Cutie and ex-PBB housemate appeared on Maalaala Mo Kaya and Oh My G.
- Jameson Blake
Just like Manolo, Jameson also became a PBB housemate for Pinoy Big Brother: 737. He became a member of Hashtag on It's Showtime after.
- Jack Reid
Yup, we still couldn't believe that one of this month's cover boy was just launched as one of the Candy Cuties last year. He now has a huge following and has appeared on the TV show Panday.
- JC de Vera
Now let's travel back to September 2003. One of this generation's brightest leading men graced the cover of one of our very first Candy Cuties issue. Back then, he was famous for his role on the teen-oriented show Click. Now, JC's appeared on several TV shows like You're My Home and The Better Half.
- Richard Gutierrez
Before this country got cray over his baby boy Zion, his dad Richard won our hearts first. He appeared on the cover of Candy's September 2002 issue. Since then, he's appeared in a looot of projects like Captain Barbell, Full House, and the reality show It Takes Gutz to Be a Gutierrez.
