As one of the most powerful men and most eligible bachelor in the Philippines, you’d think President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III couldsweep any woman off her feet—probably even newly crowned Miss Universe 2015 winner Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach. But in the very words of Kris Aquino, “I don’t think [Pia] liked Noy.”
So, yes. Surprise, surprise. What are the chances that once in this universe, the two were actually flirting before?
The big reveal happened in March at Kris Aquino and Boy Abunda’s talk show Aquino & Abunda Tonight. Pia, newly crowned as the Binibing Pilipinas 2015 winner then, went on what could be a harder question and answer portion than what her pageants could give—courtesy of Kris, herself.
“I think she entertained him but the thing is, you can tell from her character [that she’s] single-minded. Kinailangan na [Miss Universe] angfocus ko muna (It was needed that the Miss Universe pageant was what she should focus on),” she said.
