4. Sarah Geronimo
The pop superstar had this to say about her spending habits: ““Sobrang kuripot [at] sobrang matipid [ako]. Bumibili ako ng isang bagay na talagang necessity, 'yung kakailanganin ko. Para sa luho, hindi talaga.”
5. Enchong Dee
The Kapamilya heartthrob is a known kuripot among his friends and co-workers. This is what Maja had to say about Enchong: “'Di ba kuripot na siya? Pero [naging mas] kuripot siya noon dahil nagpapatayo siya ng building. 'Pag nagugutom siya, kung hindi ako ang inaasahan niya, si Kim o si Xian. One time, si Xian [ay] nagbigay ng food [so] kumuha siya ng food [pero] hindi niya namalayan na expired na pala. Ganun siya ka kuripot, nakakain siya ng mga expired na pagkain.”
