Another Abrenica brother is set to establish his own showbiz career as Vin Abrenica bags the prize for TV5's premiere talent search, Artista Academy. It was a tedious process where aspirants of the biggest prize pot in local talent search history were filtered by entertainment industry staples like Joel Lamangan, Louie Ocampo, Mac Alejandre and former GMA 7 Senior Vice President, Wilma Galvante.
Abrenica shares the genes of one of the sexiest actors in the industry today, Aljur Abrenica, who is also a product of a tv talent search competition. He won the Ultimate Hunk title in the reality-based show called Starstruck, back in 2006.
In Artista Academy's culmination at the Araneta Coliseum last night, Vin Abrenica was announced as the winner for the male category, while Sophie Albert won the female category.
Artista Academy has the distinction of having the biggest prize in local TV talent search history. Each of the winners in the male/female category was awarded P10 Million worth of prizes and an artist management contract with TV5.
