Interviews by RJ Roque
The Hottie Panel:
Do you think it’s important to celebrate Valentine’s day? Why or why not?
QUITO: "Yes, absolutely. It’s every girl’s special day. Whether you’re single or not, it’s a good opportunity to bring romance into your life. It’s the day where you get a good chance of making up from a fight, getting a yes to a proposal, or locking in your first relationship!"
TEEJAY: "Yes, it’s a celebration of love. It’s a day we try to forget everything else to focus on the people we love."
RYAN: "I don’t think it's very important. You don’t need a specific day to get all loved up with your boo, boo! If you’re in a relationship, you have to be a consistent partner."
VINCE: "For me, you don’t have to go on a date with a girl you like like. Last Valentine’s, I just went out with my cousin. The day is all about love right? Any kind of love, even for your family or siblings, should be celebrated!"
JULES: "I don’t think it’s important to celebrate Valentine’s. You don’t need a day to celebrate each other when you can do it any or every day. I’m sure it’s fun, though, and it serves as a good reminder to appreciate all the things you’ve gone through with your partner."
What’s the sweetest V-day gift you’ve ever given?
QUITO: "A heart-shaped gold locket with our baby pictures in it. I thought it was simple, meaningful, and precious. The tears in her eyes made me feel it was the perfect gift for her."
TEEJAY: "I’ve never given a super special gift yet. I only remember cooking for us and chilling while watching DVDs."
RYAN: "My kind of people always values experiences over material things—and the same goes for my mates and my dates! So, a nice late lunch that goes well into the evening and onto more exciting things, is the best gift, I think."
VINCE: "I don’t think I’ve ever given a V-Day gift. Only at school, but we were kind of forced to do it! Ha ha!"
JULES: "None. I’ve never been in a relationship."
What do you really want to do/get for Valentine’s day?
QUITO: "I have to find someone to ask on a date first!"
TEEJAY: "A date in Paris."
RYAN: "Get on a plane and travel with someone I think is funny AF. We’ll spend the whole flght laughing about the differences between window-seat people and aisle-seat people and arrive at our destination just in time for another meal."
VINCE: "To travel."
JULES: "Some nifty gadget that makes life easy for guys. I don’t know what that would be, but whatever it is, I want that! Ha ha!"
Define your perfect valentine’s date?
QUITO: "I will have her block the whole day of the 14th without telling her the plans. On the day itself, I’ll bring her to the airport then take her to Bali. We’ll have our Valentine’s date during sunset by the beach, and be back the next day."
TEEJAY: "A date in Paris! It’ll be romantic to share a moment on the Eiffel Tower. Plus, good food, good hotel, and first-class flghts. What more could I ask for?"
RYAN: "Mine happens to be something that always involves a lot of communication: Talking, making eye contact, and laughing. No Hollywood fantasy, just good ol’ quality time with someone you care and respect."
VINCE: "Maybe a nice dinner at the beach with a girl I might like."
JULES: "Camping overnight on a mountain would be nice. I’ve been a fiend for traveling lately, so the fresh, cool air, the scenic view, and just each other’s company would be ideal."
Who’s your dream date on february the 14th?
QUITO: "Olivia Munn."
TEEJAY: "Kendall or Kylie Jenner."
RYAN: "My dream date would be with someone I worked my hardest to impress and somehow succeeded to get a yes from to go out with me."
VINCE: "Penélope Cruz or Salma Hayek, or a blind date to keep it exciting."
JULES: "Jennifer Aniston, She seems so fun to be with!"
