MANILA, Philippines -- Edu Manzano declined offers for son Enzo and daughter Adi to join showbiz after the siblings' much talked about appearance on "Minute to Win It" during host Luis Manzano's birthday episode on Thursday.
The elder Manzano clarified that he only allowed his children with former model Rina Samson to participate in the game show as a gift to his son with veteran actress and re-electionist Batangas governor Vilma Santos.
Luis Manzano turned 32 on April 21.
According to Edu Manzano, finishing school is the top priority for the 6-foot-1 Enzo, an incoming freshman at De La Salle Univesity; and 5-foot-8 Addie, who wants to have a career in communications, off camera.
