(The Philippine Star) - August 6, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - A multi-talented educator and music lover, an adventurous The Amazing Race Asia 4 runner-up and an aspiring-MMA commentator and Muay Thai enthusiast have all been declared as newest MYX VJs.

According to channel head Andre Allan Alvarez, the selection of the top contenders were different and stricter compared to the previous years. “MYX VJ Search 2012 was not the same because most of the action happened online,” he explains. “With the popularity of Internet, it was a natural progression for the MYX VJ aspirants to engage with the MYX viewers and online users.”

Alvarez also stresses the reason why the production removed the public voting. “Even though their on-air personality is an important consideration, there are other qualifications that needed to be included in the selection and basically, MYX VJ Search is a mere lengthy but fun job application,” he shares.

Recently at Red Box Eastwood, MYX chose its Top 3 who stood out amidst a group of nine other worthy competitors

One of the new faces of MYX is 25 year-old Kristine Camille Antonio a.k.a VJ K.A. The young and bubbly band vocalist also happens to keep herself busy as a pre-school teacher, host and make-up artist. She’s musically inclined, showing much support for singing and composing songs, as well as enjoying the works of Maroon 5 and Adele. By becoming a MYX VJ, she will show that she’s ready to add more to her long list of credentials.

Also coming in to steal the spotlight is the adventurous and talented VJ Michelle Ng. She has already had the honor of participating in The Amazing Race Asia 4 in which she made her way to the finale, managing to place as a runner-up. The stunning commercial model also loves the artistry of musicals and theater arts. A pure Singaporean, she has proven that she is a real Filipina-at-heart.

Completing the honor roll of the new MYX VJs is sports and music lover Michael Roland Mariano, or VJ Michael for short. The 21-year-old avid martial arts fan aspires to be an MMA commentator and sportscaster someday. Aside from sports, he also loves music, enjoying all styles and genres, especially the performances of Jesse McCartney and Elton John. With his unbeaten determination, he has landed to his success of becoming the next MYX VJ. Interestingly, he just accompanied a friend for the auditions but he emerged to be one of the chosen few.

Each finalist showed enormous talent and ability over the course of the search, gaining valuable experience alongside stiff competition and also forging new friendships.

“The search has no exact requirement. We aim to find diverse personalities that can bring out something unique for the MYX viewers and as the newest faces in the MYX scene, they will undergo a training that will make them even a better VJ,” said Alvarez.
