- Star Circle Quest was first released in 2004, to be followed by other incarnations focused on aspiring children stars
- Joseph Bitangcol, who was part of the first Star Circle Quest, just got married to his non-showbiz girlfriend on July 30
- Bitangcol's former SCQ batch mates attended the wedding
Do you remember where Sandara Park, Roxanne Guinoo, Joross Gamboa, Neri Naig and Melissa Ricks first appeared?
If you do, they starred in 'Star Circle Quest' (SCQ), ABS-CBN's premiere talent search show that everyone got hooked on in 2004.
We are sure that you can still recall all, if not some, of the 10 contestants who joined and the top 5 who almost nabbed the grand prize. The majority of them became household names in the local showbiz industry, while some were lucky enough to reach international fame.
One of those who was ousted early in the competition, Joseph Bitangcol, has continued his acting career by appearing in a variety of shows and starred with fellow SCQ member Sandara Park in the 2006 rom-com film 'D'Lucky Ones'. Joseph did all of those while switching to and from various networks....until he finally settled down.
It is not about the network per se, but about his personal life - the actor has finally married his non-showbiz girlfriend, Frenchesca Tonson on July 30.
He and Frenchesca have dated since late 2014.
Frenchesca is also currently a nursing student at the University of the Philippines.
After the church ceremony, Joseph and Frenchesca celebrated their reception at the Sweet Harmony Gardens in Taytay, Rizal.
And like the brothers and sister he never had, he invited his former SCQ mates to his special day. Former sweethearts Roxanne Guinoo and Joross Gamboa graced the event, as well as Raphael Martinez. We wonder, how come the other Questors were not invited or did not come to the event?
Joross posted on his joint Instagram account (which he shares with his wife, Katz Saga) a photo of what happened at the event, and congratulated the newly-wed couple on their marriage.
Best of wishes to Joseph and Frenchesca!-Kami Media
