If there’s anyone Kaori Oinuma considers as her role model in the showbiz industry, it would be none other than Maymay Entrata.
That’s what the actress revealed during the bloggers conference of the female RISE artists last February 22. According to Kaori, her fellow “Pinoy Big Brother” alum was actually one of the reasons why she decided to audition for the reality show.
"Bago pa lang ako mag-’PBB’ nakikita ko na siya na nangangarap, tapos sabi ko parang gusto ko ring makapasok ng ‘PBB.’ Tapos isa rin siya sa dahilan kung bakit gusto ko makapasok ng ‘PBB’ noon, she recalled.
Kaori then remembered the one time she met Maymay, and was floored by her humility.
"Hanggang ngayon kasi parang hindi pa rin siya nagbabago, ganoon pa rin siya. Nakasama ko na siya sa ‘PBB’ once, and natural lang and ang simple niya. Parang hindi pa rin siya artista kahit sobrang taas na niya rin," she explained.
"Sobrang sarap niya ring kausap and ‘yung mga words niya, minsan parang sobrang gaan lang ng usapan pero maya maya biglang lumalalim na lang nang hindi mo napapansin," she added.
Both Kaori and Maymay got their start from “PBB,” with the former from the recent “PBB Otso” batch, while the latter was from the “Lucky Season 7” edition.
Kaori will be part of the upcoming iWant series “He’s Into Her.” She was also recently launched as one of the artists of the all-new RISE Artists Studio.
Meanwhile, Maymay will topbill her first-ever television series with her on-screen partner Edward Barber, “Heart to Heart.”
