Last Monday, Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach had a live video interview on Umagang Kay Ganda. When the topic touched on her current status of having no boyfriend, UKG host Anthony Taberna teased fellow Atom Araullo and the good-looking ABS-CBN reporter gamely joined in the conversation. Not seen in the clip, Atom jokingly told Pia that he’s understanding and not the jealous type. Netizens instantly paired the two and the portmanteau PiAtom was coined.
In a separate interview, Pia was asked by ABS-CBN’s official Miss Universe reporter Dyan Castillejo on what she’s looking for in a guy. Pia answered, “Gusto ko ‘yung matalino, gentleman, may sense of humor.” Looks like Atom Araullo fits the bill.
