Jake Cuenca Pranked Kylie Verzosa With a Fake Proposal And It's As Awful As It Sounds
The internet wasn't happy about Jake Cuenca's proposal prank on his girlfriend Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa. According to many users, the actor's prank wasn't a good joke to pull on his girlfriend.
Cuenca posted the prank on his Instagram account through a short video taken from his Palawan beach trip with Verzosa. The actor was seen preparing a candle-lit dinner for his girlfriend. In the darkness, set up tables and chairs surrounded by lights on the heart-shaped lawn were visible.
Verzosa approached Cuenca who stood up in his seat. He then said: "So, I prepared this because I just wanted to ask you one thing." Verzosa was visibly surprised and stunned. He continued, "So, here it goes… kumain... kumain ka na ba?"
Verzosa seemed to be teary-eyed and laughing. Cuenca asked if the actress and beauty queen liked it, and she replied: "Super! Except you. Wow." He then said I love you to his girlfriend.
The internet was quick to react to the video posted by Cuenca. Among those who commented were Angel Locsin, Bianca Manalo, and Mica Reyes as they too thought the whole thing was a real proposal.
Verzosa reacted to what happened online, too. The beauty queen seemed to have mixed feelings about her boyfriend's joke. She used teary-eyed faces, crying faces, laughing cats with tears emojis in the comments section.
In her Instagram story, she posted a screenshot of her reaction when she was pranked with the caption "I hate you? lol" while tagging the actor.
Many users also expressed frustration with the prank. One said, "For most ladies, that was a bad joke. Dont do that again please!"
Cuenca defended himself, saying, "yes but we are not like most. We get each other and we get the timing of things. When the time is right and the timing is [right] I will not hesitate to ask. [smile emoji]"
Despite Cuenca's explanation, the internet is still criticizing him. Most of the comments called out the actor for the "bad joke." One said, Verzosa may be smiling but inside she was expecting the real thing. While others said that the video shouldn't have been posted. Another said it was obvious from Verzosa's reaction that she expected it.
While another user made a point saying that the feelings of others should not be played with, especially the person you love. Some even said that when he does eventually propose to her, the beauty queen may refuse. Read more comments from the Instagram post below.
The couple have been in a relationship for two years.
