It can be recalled that Tugonon had a controversial break up with his non-showbiz boyfriend, Jaypee Santos early this year over The Script frontman.
The 24-year-old actor said, I say we go out, wala namang masama doon porket artista kami.
Para namang big deal kung lumabas kaming dalawa. If we were 15 [years old], then that could be a big deal. Were of age naman na, he added.
Alves who is the nephew of Piolo Pascual is now making his own name in the industry. After his Coffee Prince Remake project with GMA-7, he was cast in various films, including Guni-Guni with Lovi Poe.
Just recently, he again plays lead to Poe in the award-winning Cinemalaya 2013 entry (Best Film), Sana Dati.
Both Alves and the 23 year-old beauty queen are under the management of Mercator, a talent agency led by Jonas Gauffud.
Ive known her since pumasok ako kay Jonas. I think, she was starting training with Jonas then. So, Ive known her then, pero this recently lang. Its been fun, he said.
If theres something, I wont deny naman. Nakikita ninyo naman na lumalabas kami, says Alves.
Is Benjamin the man of the Pinay beautys dreams? Is Janine ready for a new relationship? Are they ready for public scrutiny?
The public are all eyes on Tugonon after she won first runner-up to Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo of the USA.
In fact, the netizens even coined a term, Na-Janine following her break-up with Santos and flirting with ODonoghue.
Weeks after she was criticized online, Tugonon admitted she was at fault over the break-up.
I accept that I was wrong. Aalam ko na ako ang mali, but I wouldnt like that failure to define who I am Mistakes do happen, but it doesnt have to dictate me where I am going, Tugonon was quoted as saying in June.
