Batman and Miss Jebs (UPDATED)
She calls him “Batman.” He calls her “Miss Jebs.” Together, they make up one of local showbiz’s most-talked about teen loveteams. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla—better known to the public as Kathniel—have given viewers many kilig moments on ABS-CBN’s Growing Up, where they play volleybelle Ella and bad boy Patrick, respectively.
Last November 23, Daniel sent me a message on BlackBerry Messenger to say that he and Kathryn would be in the ABS-CBN compound later that day to tape an appearance on the Sunday late-night talk show Gandang Gabi Vice. After reading Daniel’s message, I thought of making them answer a survey with fun, quirky questions designed to show how much they really know about each other.
I typed up a questionnaire on my laptop, printed it out and went downstairs to their dressing room. When I entered, Daniel high-fived me while I said hello to Kathryn and her mom. After I exchanged pleasantries with them—and after I got the go-ahead from their road manager, Star Magic’s Abigael Angco—I sat down with Kathryn and Daniel and told them about this blog and what I had in mind. The former was all for it, but the latter joked, “Ano? Magsusulat nanaman ako? Parang test sa school lang, ah!” But he agreed to do it anyway. Hehe.
It was so funny when I handed each of them a pen and told them to get started. They answered the questions in record time, bickering playfully while doing so. More laughter ensued when I had them exchange papers and write comments on each other’s answers. But I think I’ve rambled enough—check out the scans of their papers below. (FYI, Kathryn used a blue-ink pen and Daniel used one with black ink.)
I think the fact that Kathryn and Daniel poked fun at each other while filling out the survey means they’re very comfortable with each other, which spells good things for the future of their loveteam. Below are a few photos of Kathryn and Daniel in their dressing room, hard at work on the survey.
Watch out for Kathniel’s future projects, and of course, more Kathniel posts on this blog in the future. ;)
