Jessy asked: Jeric or Jeron?

MANILA -- "Maria Mercedes" star Jessy Mendiola had a quick answer when asked to pick between brothers Jeric and Jeron Teng, who both identified her to be their biggest "showbiz crush." The 24-year-old actress, at the sidelines of the filming for the hit series on Tuesday, was asked who she thinks is more skilled in basketball between Jeric and the younger Jeron, who respectively play for the University of Sto. Tomas and De La Salle University. "Mahirap 'yan," Mendiola told ABS-CBN News, laughing. "Mahirap mag-ko-comment sa mga ganyan, kasi baka may magalit nga pag sinabi ko na may mas magaling sa isa. Basta ang alam ko, pareho silang magaling," Jeric, whose team finished second to La Salle in the recent UAAP Men's Basketball championship, ended his collegiate basketball career this season. Jeron, on the other hand, will play three more years with the Green Archers. In several interviews following the finals leg of the UAAP, the Teng brothers were asked who they consider to be the most beautiful girl in showbiz. Both brought up Mendiola's name. Asked if she is aware of this, the actress said, "Nakarating naman sa akin 'yon." She explained several of her followers on Twitter told her about Jeric and Jeron's interview, which aired on "TV Patrol." "Tapos doon sa 'GGV,' noong niloko sila ni Vice [Ganda]," Mendiola added, referring to the brothers' recent guesting on the late-night talk show where they met an impersonator of her "Maria Mercedes" character. As to whether anyone might react negatively to the Teng brothers' apparent admiration for her -- Mendiola is said to be courted by actors Jake Cuenca and Sam Milby -- the actress said, "Wala naman." "Siguro may magagalit sa akin 'yung mga fans nila na may crush talaga sa kanila, kasi balita ko, 'yun nga, maraming may crush sa Teng brothers. 'Yun lang. Pero wala naman magagalit siguro. Sana wala," she said. Despite being linked to the two star athletes, Mendiola said she has yet to meet them, adding she is open to make their acquaintance. "Hindi pa sila sa akin nagpapakita. Sa TV, oo, sa pictures, sa Twitter, sa Instagram, nakikita ko na sila. Tsaka nag-ti-tweet narin sila sa akin about Maria Mercedes, gano'n. Hindi naman sila strangers to me. Siguro naman hindi rin ako strangers sa kanila," she said.
