Just so you know, Candy Girls, it's not very easy to sit down and chat with three handsome guys at the same time. How did we know?

Well, McDonald's recently launched their Everyday McSavers items, and got showbiz's most handsome faces as endorsers: Enrique Gil, Matteo Guidicelli, and Xian Lim. Fortunately, they gave us enough time to chat with the boys. Aside from talking about girls (more about that in another article *wink, wink*), we also talked about their fans and food—for buff guys, they are surprisingly huge eaters!

Read on to get to know these cuties better.

What was the sweetest thing a fan did for you?

Matteo: When they just come and visit you on set, and they bring you food. You would never expect somebody to exert effort for you, so it's really flattering. They're such a big blessing. I appreciate all those moments.

Xian: Para sa akin, nabasa ko lang sa Twitter, it's when one fan sold her cellphone para magkaroon ng plane ticket to come to a show from the province.


Enrique: 'Yung pag birthday mo, kahit hindi mo sinasabi, alam na nilang gusto mo 'yun. They just surprise you, and you get all these stuff. Some are students who don't even have their own money, nag-aambagan sila to buy something that I like.

What's your favorite food to munch on during summer?

Enrique, Matteo, and Xian: French fries!

If you were an ice cream flavor, what will you be?

Enrique, Matteo, and Xian: Oreo!

Enrique: It's a classic!

Is it a plus when the girl knows how to cook?

Xian: Oo naman!

Enrique: S'yempre!

Matteo: Of course!

Enrique: Or kahit hindi s'ya magaling magluto basta malambing, okay na 'yun.

What do you want them to cook for you?

Xian: Kahit ano, basta you have hot dinner when you get home.

Enrique: Agree! Or yung mas saucy para life with her is saucy.

Matteo: I like saucy, too!

What's your favorite McDonald's meal?


Enrique: Double cheese burger forever! And Sansrival McFlurry.

Xian: Coke McFloat.

Matteo: I'd go for the Sausage Mcmuffin with Egg, and espresso. I just found out that McCafe's espresso tastes better than those sold in coffee shops.

Your favorite Happy Meal toy?

Xian: Dati they had Tarzan toys. Gustung-gusto ko 'yung cheetah, kasi if you pull it up and press it down—it hops!

Enrique: Yeah, yeah! Galing no'n! You know that Mr. Peabody & Sherman? The flying thing that glides, okay rin yun.

Matteo: Me, I don't remember.

Fondest memory in the fast food restaurant?

Matteo: When I was a kid in Cebu, I always celebrated my birthday party in McDo.

Enrique: I associate McDo with my childhood. My mom says, "Ito, what's that?" (points to a McDonald sign). And I'd say, "Ahhh."

Xian: In McDonald's Marcos Highway, they had a trick or treat. Yung mga bata doon, mamahalin yung costumes, kasi paligsahan. My mom didn't want to spend a lot on costumes, so nilagyan niya lang ako ng white paint para mukhang Dracula—and I won!
