Anyone, literally anyone can be an instant celebrity via social media. You will never know when a post will be trending, it can just instantly blow up and the next thing you know, you are already the subject of the talk of the whole social media world and even the media on national TV!
This fame though, may both be a blessing and a curse because whatever it is that made you go viral, may it be a photo or a video will forever be associated with your name.
Just like in the case of Michelle Alfonso or better known as one of the girls in the viral “Pabebe Girls” video. To make the reference more clear, Michelle is that girl on the left side wearing a white shirt. Yes, the one without the kilay.
Roughly five years since her viral video, Michelle once again stepped on the spotlight of the showbiz world when she became a contestant on Eat Bulaga’s “Bawal Judgmental” segment on November 14.
Michelle surely did grow and puberty hit her hard because she is now a grown-up young lady. She looks pretty, to be honest, plus, she now has kilay!
On the said segment, the 16-year-old Michelle recalled the momentary fame she had back in 2015. In fact, Michelle, together with her friend in the viral video, Janet Ricabo had TV guesting in various shows like Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho, Rated K, ASAP, Celebrity Bluff, Tunay Na Buhay, and Gandang Gabi Vice.
Watch the whole show here:
In her interview with PEP, Michelle expressed her desire to enter showbiz if she would be given a chance. She also shared her plan to create her own Youtube Channel and somehow experience the same fame that she had back in 2015.
