In all talent and reality shows, usually the first batch always have that certain kind of luck to have good careers based on our observation. Taking as example is the first batch of Star Circle Quest (SCQ) which most of the contestant are still active in the limelight.
Do you still remember them? What are they particularly up to now?
Joseph Bitangcol – Although Joseph Bitangcol didn’t land any spot in the finals, his career as an actor shone way back. He was linked to Sandara Park and sometime became his love interest in some projects. Now, Joseph Bitangcol is involved in indie films and theatrical plays. He tied the knot on July 2016 and is now a father to his fist daughter.
Michelle Madrigal – We didn’t know that Michelle Madrigal was part of Star Circle Quest because she’s been very active in the rival network. From a morena aspiring actress, Michelle Madrigal made her name in modelling particularly to men’s magazine. She’s currently pregnant with her boyfriend and is now in the US studying culinary arts.

Roxanne Ginoo – Same with her other co-contestants, Roxanne Ginoo left show business to be a full time mother. During her time in showbiz, she was rumoured to be dating Jake Cuenca and Joross Gamboa.
Sandara Park – We think Sandara is the most successful SCQ finalist among all despite landing runner-up. After SCQ, she did some TV and movie projects and after her contract ended, she flew to South Korea and be trained as a member of 2NE1, one of the most popular girl group in South korea.
