Joven Olvido still can’t believe he’s on his way to showbiz stardom after placing third in the sixth season of “Pilipinas Got Talent.”
Speaking on “Tonight with Boy Abunda” yesterday, May 4, the budding comedian shared how emotional he felt when he found out he’ll be part of Vice Ganda’s upcoming movie this year.
“[Ime-mentor daw po ako ni Vice], tapos nung sinabi niya ‘yun, sobrang maiiyak na po ako kasi hindi ko inakalang ganun ang mangyayari,” he said, adding that he wants to play Vice’s best friend in the film.
Joven also talked about his life before joining “Pilipinas Got Talent,” and shared that he had to get by as a tricycle driver to provide for his family.
“Hindi po pare-parehas ‘yung kita, minsan po kumikita lang ng 300, 250,” he said.
However, Joven proved that despite his newfound fame, he hasn’t let any of it get to his head - both of his feet are still very much in the ground.
“Namamasada pa rin po ako… kahit pagtapos ng auditions,” he said.
