Hopeless romantics in search for their destiny are sure to get a lot of help from the newest dream boy of Barangay LS 97.1’s Wanted Sweetheart – Papa Bol.

From hosting its counterpart program in General Santos City’s Barangay 102.3, Papa Bol or Benjur Evangelista takes his matchmaking and love advice skills up a notch as he now hosts the nationwide program airing Mondays to Fridays at 9 PM.

Evangelista admits that he is pressured to continue what Papa Dan, the original host, started and to meet the expectations of the program’s loyal listeners. “Grabe yung pressure. You really have to step into his shoes o kaya, kung pwede mo pang higitan, gawin mo talaga. It’s an honor and a big responsibility,” he shares.

Papa Bol, who recently returned to his family home in Las PiƱas City, was born in Iloilo and resided in Gen San for seven years. He was working as a call center agent in Gen San when he decided to give radio disc jockeying a shot despite having no background in radio.

“About five years ago, napadpad ako sa Barangay radio station, nag-apply, tapos everything started from there. It was my first time kaya nakakatakot, nakakakaba. Then ‘yung love sa radio came in nung nagagamay ko na yung trabaho. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. Talagang love ko ang radio,” he says.

From his years of experience as an on-air matchmaker, one of his most memorable moments includes being thanked by a couple who met each other through his radio program. “Bago ako umuwi ng Manila, may couple na nagpasalamat na ikakasal na sila. It was the first couple na nagpasalamat sa akin,” he adds.

While girls (or even some boys) are wondering about Papa Bol’s relationship status, he says he remains single by choice after going through a lot in his past relationships. He emphasizes that these experiences help him to give realistic love advice to his listeners. 

Catch the newest dream boy of Wanted Sweetheart from 9PM to 12AM, Mondays to Fridays, on Barangay LS 97.1, GMA’s flagship FM radio station.

It's been almost 2 years since Klea Pineda won as the Female Ultimate Starstruck Survivor and within those years, Klea have achieved much and is ready to push herself to the limits to achieve more of her dreams. 

Klea Pineda will be celebrating her debut this year and she shared some of the details of her upcoming debut on which she said she's very hands on about it.


The Encantadia star who plays the role of Muyak will have a "Bohemian" inspired debut party. Klea said that she wanted her debut to be a "chillax" party and that everyone will be at ease and relax while enjoying the great food and ambiance at Nobu Hotel, City of Dreams on March 25.

She will not be wearing the traditional ball gowns used in debut party, instead a Bohemian themed dress too since she loves flowers as well.

"Hindi pa kasi ako artista yun na talaga ang dream ko sa debut ko, basta may theme na flowers since mahilig ako sa flowers so Bohemian theme is perfect." Klea said during 
the Blogcon. 

All her three gowns are boho-chic themed outfit and one of them is designed by no less than Kim Gan. 


The debut party of Klea will be an intimate gathering of her family and close friends since she already celebrated it with her fans when they arranged a surprise birthday party for her. 

"The party will be intimate. I just want my family and friends to be there... With all the people around me giving me unconditional love and support, I'm inspired to focus on my ultimate goal, and that is to find happiness in everything I do." - according to Klea.

Klea also got emotional when she talked about her deceased grandfather whom she called "Papang" because she is very close to him. It's been years since he passed away but to Klea, she always misses him and wishes that he's still here to witness everything that is happening to her.  "Sana na-congratulate ako ni Papang, audition pa lang ng StarStruck wala na siya eh. Sobrang close ako sa lolo ko, hanggang ngayon 'pag naririnig ko 'yung pangalan na 'Papang,' talagang naninikip 'yung heart ko." Klea said.

Klea also shared that she missed his lolo more when she attended Gabbi Garcia's debut, "Kasi po parents ko on both sides, wala na akong lolo. Share ko lang, 'yung kay Gabbi nung debut niya, nakita ko na nasayaw niya 'yung lolo niya on both sides. Naiyak ako nun kasi sabi ko 'Wala nang sasayaw sa akin na lolo ko,'"

Klea also shared that even though she turned 18 this year, she would still follow her parents and be more responsible since she is now an adult. "Until now, strict pa rin sila sa akin (laughs). Siguro hahayaan nila akong mag-decide pero i-ga-guide pa rin nila ako. Kailangan ko pa rin ng opinyon nila, kung tama ba 'tong gagawin ko. Hindi porket 18 na ako, kailangan independent na rin ako sa lahat ng gagawin ko, still parang baby pa rin ako para sa kanila. And kailangan ko pa rin ng cuddle nila as my parents,"

Klea Pineda is a combination of beauty and brains. Even though she is busy with different projects right now like Encantadia, she made it a point that she will finish her studies as well.  Just like what I asked her before, her dream is still to join the prestigious beauty contest Binibining Pilipinas in the future and with her good looks, witty attitude and height, she will surely go a long way. 

Klea is excited to do some workshops to enhance her chances in winning in the beauty pageant. at the age of 18, she stands 5'9 inches and according to Klea she doesn't mind being compared to the likes of Megan Young or Pia Wurtbach since it's such an honor even to be compared with them but just like them, she also wanted to make a mark in the industry and make a name of her own. She doesn't mind joining many times juts like what happened to Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach for as long as she gives her best and finally earning the much coveted crown and title. 


Since she has a lot of plans in the future, for now, she is not thinking about love life. Although she has suitors, Klea said she wants to focus more on her career and studies.
