MANILA - Evicted "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Axel Torres was asked to pick between two women linked to him during his stint inside the famous yellow house -- dancer Aina Solano and young actress Jane Oineza.
The 19-year-old student was made to choose who he liked more, during a live interview on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" on Monday.
"Sa personality po, si Jane, kasi maganda po... Mabait po siya, sobrang understanding," Torres said. "Siguro naging close lang po talaga kami ni Aina kaya nagmukhang [may gusto ako sa kanya]."
During his 4-week stay as a "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate, Torres was teased by fellow housemates about Oineza and Solano.
On Twitter, fans of Oineza even dubbed Torres and the actress' pairing as "JaXel," a term that frequently became a trending topic on the micro-blogging site.
Torres, however, admitted that before entering "Pinoy Big Brother," he had been exclusively dating. He said the girl understood that he could be involved with another woman once inside the house.
Meanwhile, Torres said he was not surprised to be the third evictee from "Pinoy Big Brother" last Saturday. He recalled having an inkling that it would either be him or Solano who would exit the house.
"Nagdasal po ako na ako 'yung [ma-evict]," he said. "Parang gano'n po 'yung nasa isip ko, kasi may family po ako na naghihintay sa labas. And siya po, mag-pa-fly home pa to Boracay."
Admittedly, Torres is saddened that he had to leave "Pinoy Big Brother" early in the competition. "Gusto ko pong bumalik sa bahay ni Kuya, para mapatunayan ko pa po [kung ano magawa] ko sa sarili ko," he said.
Asked whether he plans to enter showbiz, Torres readily said yes.
Referring to his failed attempt to become a UAAP player for De La Salle University, Torres explained, "Kung ito po yung magiging after ng basketball ko, i-a-accept ko, kasi hindi po ako naging successful sa basketball."
