Jollibee, the country’s leading fast-food chain, and Myx, the number one music channel in the Philippines, are proud to present the results of the first ever Choice Ko Yum Awards! These represent the youth’s top picks in music, film, fashion, sports and everything else they are passionate about. It’s all about giving young Pinoys the chance to express themselves and celebrate their best choices with their favorite langhap-sarap burger, the Jollibee Yum!
The event was held at Music Museum last November 4, 2013, with the very talented Myx VJ Chino Lui Pio and Julia Barretto who bagged the Local Choice Female Hearthrob award as the event’s hosts. And what better way to jumpstart the event than to witness an epic performance by the award-winning crew of the Philippine All Stars!?
A total of 6,258 votes of the youth have been cast via www.myxph.com/choicekoyumawards from September 18 to October 24, 2013. Below are their top choices:
Youth: Crush-worthy charmers and thrilling talents that bring pride to their schools and universities.
Choice Rising Performer: MAC Dancers (AdU)
Choice Athlete: Rachel Daquis (FEU Alumnus)
Choice Campus Cutie (Female): Kate Leong (AdU)
Choice Campus Cutie (Male): Daniel Velasco (ADMU)
Let me quote myself from the previous blog post I did for Jollibee, when I was still convincing you guys to vote,”Who do you think I’m rooting for? Well if you’re going to ask me, it’s definitely Rachel Daquis for the Choice Youth Athlete! I mean who can resist that angelic face of hers!?” Thank You for making it happen! Haha! I know she deserves it more than anyone else.
Lifestyle: From fashion to flicks, tunes to travels, sports and social media, these are the picks that define today’s generation and their diverse interests.
Choice Barkada Trip: Palawan
Choice Dance Craze: Gentleman
Choice Fashion: Street Style
Choice Fitness Challenge: Running
Choice Flick: Romantic Comedy
From PSY’s Oppa Gangnam Style who made history for the most viewed video on YouTube, it’s not surprising anymore to know that Gentleman won the Choice Dance Craze. And if by any chance you don’t know this music video, well you probably isolated yourself from the face of world. Just kidding!
Choice Kilig Date: Weekend Getaway
Choice Sport: Basketball
Choice Superhero: Iron Man
Choice Teen Beats: Rock
Choice Social Hashtag: #TBT
“A genius billionaire playboy philanthropist”, just by saying this statement, I know you already have an idea who am I referring to. Come on, if you don’t think Iron Man shouldn’t get that choice superhero award, then screw you! Just so you know, Robert Downey Jr. who played Iron Man is the highest paid hollywood actor. How much? $75 million. #justsaying

No wonder she is named the local choice female heartthrob.
