MANILA – Fans of Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto and “Umagang Kay Ganda” host Gretchen Ho could not contain their excitement as the two were recently spotted together.
Photos of Sotto and Ho watching a SEA Games event together have been making the rounds on Twitter, with netizens asking if they are dating.
Others have gone as far as giving them a couple nickname: “ViChen.”
A quick look at Sotto’s Twitter page would show that the young mayor only shared photos of him with his other “seatmates,” such as actor-turned-politician Richard Gomez, during the game.
This added fuel to the fire as netizens had the impression that Sotto does not want his followers to know that he was seated beside Ho.
“Hindi ba si Gretchen [ang] katabi mo?” one asked, sharing a stolen shot of Sotto with the TV host.
Another quipped: “Share mo din ‘yung picture niyo nung isa mo pang katabi.”
Sotto, son of comedian Vic Sotto and actress Coney Reyes, has become a celebrity in his own right after winning the Pasig mayoral seat early this year, putting an end to the political dynasty in the city.
Ho, who rose to fame as a volleyball player for Ateneo de Manila University, has made a career out of hosting.
Both Sotto and Ho have previously mentioned that they are single. The two have yet to react to the circulating photos as of writing.
