With Good Looks Come Great Responsibility: Marky Cielo Wins!!!

Rumours, a popular bar in Session Road, was empty last Sunday night except for a couple of lovers. Other hangouts here were virtually empty.
As it turned out, most have went home to watch till Monday morning for Mark Angelo Cadaweng Cielo win this year's edition of Starstruck, garnering more than P4 million incash and prizes.
You could hear a collective sigh in Baguio at 1:00 am when Cielo was announced as the “ultimate survivor” of Starstruck 3.
Markymania finally reached its climax, with the 17-year-old Igorot student garnering the most votes in GMA 7's premier star search contest.
Cielo even beat the “ultimate female survivor” Jackie Rice of Olongapo, who upset favorite Iwa Moto. But while Rice is Fil-Am and Moto is Fil-Jap, Cielo is FBI!!!! Full Blooded Igorot.
Blogs have affirmed that Cordilerans from as far as London and New York have voted for Cielo through the Internet.
"Uray dakami asna london et ikarkararag me ta sik-a nan mangabak (We were praying here in London that you wouild win)," said Lodoner in kankanaey. "Prove to those judges that we Igorots are at par if not better than the rest."
"Ayeh talaga ay nala-eng ken naanos ti Igorot anya. Siya it ay, habang ay man-ar-artista ka ay et adi ka linglingan han nalpwam ken importante it han ugali (Igorots are really good yet patient. Now that you are a star, don't forget where the importance of your roots and your attitude," advised a certain Jenny though email.
"Itakdeg mo data ko ay Torogi (You stand for your being an Igorot) With great looks comes great responsibility," said Harold Guanso, whose claim to fame now is that he was a classmate of Cielo.
Huge posters of Cielo or Starstruck Marky can be seen all over town. “Marky Cielo, Pride of the Cordilleras” was hung above a popular ukay-ukay store here.
Though born in Butuan City, Cielo traced his roots in Mountain Province and was proud of his Igorot roots. He studied high school in Buguias and then took Architecture in Saint Louis University here, where he is a staff artist of their college paper.
When "Starstruck: The Nationwide Invasion" came to SM Baguio last month, the mall was filled to the rafters with his townmates from as far as Besao hiring buses to watch him.
Cielo was being marketed as a great dancer but his gregariousness even infected his fellow survivors, who consistently voted for him to stay in the series.
