Alden Richards, named the “Sexiest Man in the Philippines” for two straight years now, just announced that he is hoping to finally have a girlfriend this year.
The Kapuso star made this revelation at the media announcement of his new endorsement deal with the Lucio Tan Group for Embassy Whisky.
“I’m giving it time this year. Ayan ang sigurado!” Alden said when pressed if he is actively seeking a real-life romantic relationship.
He noted that there is a big change that his goal will come true since it’s still the start of the year. ”Siyempre hahanap muna. January pa lang e. Ngayon ito na ‘yung time. Darating naman ‘yon. Kasi baka ‘pag ipilit natin, baka para tayong kumain ng kanin na mainit na ‘pag napaso, kasi ayoko namang maging gano’n ‘yung relationship ko.”
Already, Alden was rumored to have been wooing former Miss Universe Catriona Gray. But he denied it, saying he has not even personally met Catriona, who is now a contract star of ABS-CBN. Alden, of course, is a Kapuso talent, with his current primetime project in GMA Network being the series “The Gift”. He is also one of the hosts of “Eat Bulaga”.
Alden, aside from being one of the most desired bachelors in the country, has been voted the “Sexiest Man in the Philippines” for two consecutive years (2018 and 2019).
In the 2019 poll of the entertainment blog Starmometer, Alden received 56.9% of the votes.
He bested the likes of Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, Dingdong Dantes and James Reid.
Starmometer’s criteria for the poll are 30% charm, 40% physique and 30% popularity index.
Alden and his team are now abroad for another endorsement. Photos of him on a plane wearing a face mask are all over the social media. This had his fans worried, as the world is now facing the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) that originated from Wuhan, China.
For instance, @Mhaicute tweeted:
Alden, in an interview with Boy Abunda last year, revealed that he last had a romantic relationship way back in college.
