4. Ara Mina
5. Marvin Agustin
6. Butch Jimenez / Jimmy Duavit

7. Dingdong Dantes (Definitely Crush ng Bayan)

Among a bunch of 'talentless', 'pa-cute' teens on TV these days, only Dingdong Dantes has the charm and ability to turn heads. He doesn't have to try hard to appear cute. He is cute. And he can manage to deliver his lines pretty well.

9. Michael V
10. Judy Ann Santos / Jolina Magdangal
11. Butch Dalisay
12. Kulay
