Mario Maurer recently guested in the virtual mediacon of the TNTCON 2021 where he was asked about how he perceives some Kapamilya stars, which include Bea Alonzo and Liza Soberano.
The Thai actor, who was with two other Thai stars, Gulf Kanawut and Nonkul Chanon, gleefully answered questions whether a particular star is “jowa” or “tropa” material.
Before the game started, the guests were made to understand what “jowa” and “tropa” means in their “Jojowain o Totropahin” challenge.
When Bea’s name and photo came up, Mario took time to praise the acting prowess of the 33-year-old Bea.
However, when asked how he perceives her, the Thai actor answered he finds Bea as “tropa” material.
When Liza’s name and picture came up, both Mario and Nonkul said they find her “jowa” or girlfriend material, while the other Thai actor, Gulf, said that for him, she’s “tropa” material.
After being shown the photo of Mimiyuuuh, all three said they find the popular vlogger “tropa” material.
Mario also took time to tell his Filipino fans how much he misses them. The Thai actor said that when the current health crisis is over, he would like to return to the Philippines and take a vacation at Boracay.
Mario Maurer is a Thai actor and model. He was born on December 4, 1988 to a German father and a Thai Chinese mother in Bangkok, Thailand. Maurer started a career in modeling at the age of 16. He later became best known for his lead roles in the 2007 film The Love of Siam and the 2010 sleeper hit Crazy Little Thing Called Love. He is also the lead star of Thailand's highest-grossing film of all time, Pee Mak alongside Davika Hoorne. In the Philippines, he is best known for his role in the movie Suddenly It’s Magic with Erich Gonzales.
In March, Mario Maurer’s name was again a hot issue in the Philippines after a company claiming to be his management agency sent a demand letter to Kakai Bautista. The letter asked Kakai to cease and desist from using the Thai actor's name. The said letter revealed that it has reached the agency that Kakai was allegedly using Mario's name in several interviews. Addressing the manager of Kakai, it stated that Kakai allegedly continues to use the name of Mario without consent.
While many Filipinos sympathized with Kakai, there were a few who subjected her to bashing. In one instance, a netizen bashed her viral swimsuit photo. The basher commented that Thai actor Mario Maurer might throw up if he sees the daring pic. As for Kakai, she replied that the netizen might be bashing her to cope with the pandemic. The actress added that she would not pay for the basher’s hospital bill if ever she gets hospitalized due to hatred.
