Ex-PBB housemate Karina’s BF auditions for Starstruck

The boyfriend of ex-Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemate Karina Bautista recently auditioned for GMA Networks’s artista search show Starstruck.

Photos of Christian Dronio during the audition has been making rounds online.

Dronio and Bautista have been in a relationship for four years before she entered the Big Brother House in November 2018.

She, on the other hand, developed a special attraction to fellow housemate Aljon Mendoza. While she expressed admiration for the latter, she also fought those feelings because she has a long-term boyfriend. With this, she and Mendoza decided to just stay as friends.

On December 9, PBB’s official Facebook page posted a video where Dronio reacted to Bautista’s actions in the Big Brother house. He admitted that he got hurt when Bautista expressed feelings for Mendoza — but stressed that he still has faith in her.

“Ang masasabi ko lang sa naging confession ni Karina kay Kuya specifically about kay Aljon, is siyempre kahit sino namang lalaki masasaktan and to be honest nasasaktan talaga ako hanggang ngayon….Pero sa apat na taon naming pinagsamahan, napatunayan naman namin ‘yong pagmamahal namin sa isa’t-isa. Malaki na rin ‘yong na-build up namin na trust sa isa’t-isa and enough naman ‘yon para pagkatiwalaan ko siya sa mga ginagawa niya,” he said.

“Baduy man pakinggan pero pumasok ka ng bahay ni Kuya na mahal kita, lalabas ka ng bahay ni Kuya na mahal pa rin kita,” he expressed further.
