Dubious Gimmick

An important factor among social media influencers is the number of followers one has. For celebrities, getting many followers can be easy as they already have established a reputation. For others, who have no showbiz connection, creativity and talent are key to building a reputation as a blogger. With more followers, the assumption is that the said influencer would have wide reach for product awareness. Subsequently, companies notice such sites and place their ads, which means earnings for the owner.

When almost every celebrity realized the power of social media as an alternative outlet for their own awareness, the competition for attention and clicks became stronger. Hence, one has to think of ways to retain and gain followers. Usually, these influencers resort to contests or giveaways. The prizes are either from sponsors or pre-loved items from the owner himself/herself.

As contests are sure ways of increasing traffic, most social media owners would prefer that method. The excitement among followers builds up until the day of the announcement. For followers of an Almost Showbiz celebrity (AS), joining her contests was one way of showing they are loyal fans. However, many winners are surprised at how AS deals with them. Allegedly, AS does not keep her end of the bargain, which leaves the unfortunate winners wondering what ever happened to their prize. If they decide to place a message in the social media account where they won, AS erases such comment and blocks the poor winner. Inquiries and follow-ups are not allowed as well. So much for sincerity.

‘A gimmick would be something you'd do to attract attention or to bring fame and fortune.’ – Mark Kozelek

Make the Right Judgment

Among the present crop of young and talented actors, Good-looking Actor (GA) has the talent and looks that could have given him career stability in the entertainment industry. As GA has been in the business for a time, he already is familiar with the ins and outs of the demands of being a celebrity. Knowledge and experience help, but GA did not have the right timing. While he was starting out, other young actors were already ahead of him. Mobility did not help either.

One day, when a career seems to be an uphill climb, someone offered GA an opportunity that was hard to refuse and he took it. While pursuing a new path, GA was also pursuing his love life. Allegedly, he was in a relationship with Someone living Overseas (SO). Because GA has been discrete about his relationships no one knew about his pursuits and only rumors would allude to his choices.

Rumors have it that GA’s relationship did not turn out well. When most relationships end, usually, the partners just move on separately. In the case of GA and SO, a certain matter had to be cleared and that matter refers to many zeroes. Allegedly, GA owes SO a huge amount of money that the latter is demanding. Apparently, GA is not responding positively. Worse, GA might find himself in a legal battle, which, if made public could reveal his preference and confirm all the rumors about his true nature.

SO is allegedly still thinking of whether to pursue legal avenues to get his money back. If such indeed happens. GA would definitely be in quandary, as most actors prefer a silent treatment of their relationships. A revelation might even put GA’s career in question and in jeopardy, as he might be violating laws in countries where his lifestyle can get lashings and even death. Thus, will GA make peace with SO before things escalate?
