Nilinaw ni Jon Avila ang ipinahayag niya noon na crush niya si Rufa Mae Quinto. Pero, nang tanungin siya sa isang talk show at kung ano ang tipo niyang babae, dapat daw ay exotic looking ito, or morena, kabaligtaran ng physical attributes na maglalarawan kay P-chi.

"Normally, yung mga morena at exotic looking ang type ko," sabi ni Jon nang makasalubong namin siya sa hallway ng TV5 kamakailan na nasa Novaliches, Quezon City, habang kasagsagan ng taping ng Shall We Dance? kung saan isa siya sa co-host ni Lucy Torres-Gomez.

Patuloy niya, "Hindi naman laging may particular type ako, pero kung preference, sinasabi ko talagang mas gusto ko ang morena.

"Lumaki ako sa London, di ba? Ang lagi kong nakikitang mga babae roon, mapuputi.

"Pero, totoo yun, that I had a crush on P-chi the first time I saw her on TV. Hindi naman big deal yun or contradictory talaga roon sa sinabi kong nagkaka-crush ako normally sa mga exotic-looking at morena."

For the record, idiniin ni Jon na friends lang talaga sila ni P-chi. Lalong tumindi ang closeness nila nang magkatrabaho sila sa Single, para sa sariling produksyon ni P-chi, in cooperation with Viva Films.

"Nami-miss ko nga yung shooting namin, kasi, tapos na yung movie," ani Jon. "Naghihintay na lang kami ng playdate for early next year. Nagda-dubbing na lang kami.

"Grabe kasi ang bonding namin for that movie. Si P-chi, laging nagpapatawag ng nighout after shooting, kapag maaga kaming natatapos.

"Masaya ang bonding namin doon, with Raf [Rafael Rosell] and the others. P-chi is such a cool producer. Hindi ko nga naramdaman na trabaho yung ginawa namin," kuwento pa ng half-British hunk.

RELATING WITH RUFA MAE. Sa ngayon, parang ayaw yatang magsalita muna ni P-chi tungkol sa mga lalaki. That was after na magkaroon daw ng isyu sa kanila ng half-Mexican BF niyang si Bobby Lopez.

"Nagkausap kami ni P-chi about her ex-BF," pagtatapat ni Jon. "Alam ko kasing mahirap yung long-distance relationship nila. Nakaka-relate ako roon.

"Naranasan ko na rin yun, pero I can feel, she's also happy with her relationship kay Bobby. Pero, mahirap. Kaya sa ganoon, lagi kaming nag-uusap ni P-chi. We always  have a lot of things to talk about.

"Nasasabi nga niya sa amin na talagang wala na siyang time. Masyado siyang busy. Dumarating siya sa set, sluggish ang feeling niya, lagi siyang puyat.

"Napakasipag din kasi niya. Kaya kahit hindi long-distance relationship siguro, baka hindi niya masyadong maasikaso ang love life niya," nasabi na lang ng binata.

Pareho rin daw kay Bobby yun, na wala ring oras para kay P-chi.

"For the record, I'm not courting P-chi," sabi pa ni Jon. We're friends. Click kami when we're together. Pero kung iisipin mong ipapasok namin yung pagkakaroon ng relationship, baka lalo lang gumulo ang situwasyon.

"As of now, we're good friends. I just want to take this slowly. Let's just see what will happen," dugtong niya.

CAREER-ORIENTED. Pareho rin silang career-oriented ni P-chi, lalo na siya na kailangang tutukan niya ang career dahil hindi pa siya established as an actor.

Mapapanood muna si Jon sa Metro Manila Film Festival entry na One Night Only para sa OctoArts Films; and among the guys sa cast ng Single, si Jon ang may pinakamalaking role as the leading man of Rufa Mae.

"Sa December 3, mag-uumpisa na kami ng taping for Sanlakas, the all-star cast tele-fantasya kung saan pagsasama-samahin sina Kapitan Boom, Varga, Kapitan Inggo, Tiny Tony and the others na creations ni Mars Ravelo.

"It's another good break for me after I played the role of Kapitan Boom, di ba?"

May ginagawang pelikula ngayon ang model turned actor na si Jon Avila na intended for the Metro Manila Film Festival, ang One Night Only under OctoArts Films. Habang kausap ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal), panay ang bida ni Jon kung gaanong kasarap katrabaho ang co-star niya sa pelikula na si Valerie Concepcion na member din ng cast ng Banana Split, kunsaan guest siya.

"She's fun to be with. Ang lakas ng energy niya," sabi ni Jon sa PEP about Valerie, sa set ng November 20 taping ng Banana Split. 

Posible bang magkagusto siya sa isang babae na may anak na, pero hindi naman kasal?

"Yeah! Okey naman," sagot agad ni Jon.

So, posibleng magkagusto siya kay Valerie na may isang anak na?

"Posible! Maganda naman siya at mabait pa. Pero sa ngayon we're just friends. Tingnan na lang natin what will happen next or in the future."

INTERESTED ON KC.  Bukod kay Valerie, nagagandahan din si Jon kay KC Concepcion. At sinabi niya sa PEP na crush niya ang panganay ni Sharon Cuneta.

Na-meet na raw niya si KC nang mag-guest siya kasama si Jake Cuenca sa show ni Sharon na Sharon.

"Pumunta siya doon to check on her mom. ‘Tapos ‘ayun nag-meet kami. Mukhang mabait siya ‘tapos gusto ko ang talking voice niya, ang cute."

Kinuha ba niya ang cell phone number ni KC?

"Ah, hindi," sagot niya. Pero may balak din daw si Jon na kunin ang number ni KC ‘pag nagkita sila ulit nito.

Noon ang sabi ni Jon ay si Maja Salvador ang crush niya at gusto niya itong ligawan. Anong nangyari at mukhang hindi niya na type ang dalaga at si KC na nga ang gusto niya?

"Sweet si Maja but she's too young for me," sagot ni Jon.

ALLAN K'S CRUSH. Isa si Jon sa member ng Cover Boys na napapanood sa ASAP '08 every Sunday. Sa members ng Cover Boys ay very vocal ang komedyanteng si Allan K sa pagsasabi na si Jon ang pinakagusto niya. Ano naman ang reaksyon ni Jon tungkol dito?

"Talaga? Ako ang pinakagusto niya? Thank you!

"Nung birthday ko, may concert ako sa Zirkoh. And I'm very grateful that he guested in my concert," kuwento pa ni Jon.

Sabi pa ni Allan K, kung sakaling may offer sa kanyang movie at papipiliin siya kung sino ang gusto niyang maging leading man, ang pipiliin niya ay si Jon.

"Thank you sa kanya," tanging nasabi na lang ni Jon.

Paano kung halimbawang may kissing scene sila ni Allan, okey lang ba sa kanya?

"Okey lang," walang kagatul-gatol na sagot ng Kapamilya hunk.

E, paano kung halimbawang ligawan siya ni Allan?

"Ang gusto ko ay babae," tanging sagot na lang ni Jon.

Jon to wear the Kapitan Boom costume again?

Written on 1:35 PM by Blogtopia

Still fresh from the success of the previous installment of Komiks Presents: Mars Ravelo’s Kapitan Boom, Filipino-Irish model/actor Jon Avila is keeping his fingers crossed to get the chance to wear the tight-fitting red superhero costume again.

“I enjoyed doing the show, I loved watching it myself,” Jon began. “I enjoyed it not just because I know the cast, but because I love the character. I thought as though it was my first and last show. I gave it my all. ”

When ABS-CBN.COM asked the actor during the farewell party of Kapitan Boom, if there will be a possibility for a second season, he said: “Sana. It’s a really nice show. I am sure many people would wanna see Kapitan Boom again either on TV or movie house.”

But in a previous one-on-one interview, Jon said that he “will be wearing the costume again” in the future, but refusing to give more details. This raised speculations if there would indeed be a part two for Kapitan Boom. Meanwhile, Rondell Lindayag, creative head of Komiks Presents, revealed that they entertained the idea of extending Kapitan Boom, whose last episode aired last Saturday, August 2. “Actually, inisip na naming habaan ang istorya ng Kapitan Boom,” he shared. “Pero masasagasaan na ang ibang storya.”

Komiks Presents have attained the rights to five superhero characters of Mars Ravelo, including Kapitan Boom and Varga. “Alam naman natin na ang superheroes stories maliit lang talaga ang ginagalawan ng kuwento nila eh,” Randel explained. “Iniiklian namin para naman iba-iba ang makita niyong kuwento.”

Meanwhile, after his feat as a superhero, Jon is soon to start shooting for a film together with Rufa Mae Quinto under Viva Films.

Jon Avila denies courting Nikki Gil

Coverboys hottie Jon Avila, who just recently came back from a well-deserved week-long vacation in the U.K where he also attended his sisters wedding, is ready to set the record straight between him and Nikki Gil. The Bench underwear model finally talks about the incident that happened during last month’s Star Magic Ball where Jon was seen escorting Nikki throughout the event and her rumored ex-flame Geoff Eigenmann was reportedly miffed at the outing. “I arrived at the event alone. I really had no date that night. Nikki also came by herself so they just paired us to walk down the red carpet together. I just wanted to be a good escort, so I gave her company before the program started. She was the host so it’s not like it was a date or anything,” Jon explains.

Sources say that Geoff was surprised when he saw them together because it was the first time Nikki was seen in public with another guy. “Me and Nikki are going on a U.S tour along with the other Coverboys next month, so I thought spending time with her at the Ball would be a good opportunity to get to know her more. The other Coverboys are more familiar to her, so I just wanted to be friendlier so that we’ll be more comfortable with each other when we do our shows,” Jon adds.

Although Jon doesn’t deny his attraction for pretty morenas, Jon is quick to say he has no plans of courting Nikki now or in the future. “I don’t know why I keep getting myself into situations like this, just like what happened before. I would never want to hurt anybody’s feelings or be misinterpreted like that because I’m not that kind of guy,” he shares. When he found out about Geoff’s reaction, Jon quickly sought out the actor to clear things out and apologize, despite the fact that people around him were discouraging him from doing so. “They were telling me that I don’t need to apologize since I wasn’t doing anything wrong. But I don’t like to make anybody feel like that. I know what it’s like to be hurt like that and it makes me feel bad knowing I was part of the cause. I was really sorry it made him feel that way and it bothered me to know that,” he confesses.
