Reassessing a Career

When a network decided to gamble on a non-tested but Appealing Personality (AP), the management was unsure if AP could deliver. After all, he was unknown and giving him an opportunity that has eluded most of the talents was bound to create controversy. The project was a hit and the network saw the potential of AP, but he was still a newbie. Nonetheless, the audience wanted to see more of AP, and the network gave in by casting him as lead in a low risk project (LRP).  

LRP had a typical plot. The cast comprised a set of new talents, whom the network was building up as next important stars, and seasoned talents who often played supporting roles effectively. The fresh face of AP was a factor that made the audience curious. In a few weeks, the network finally coveted the top place in a timeslot that has eluded their shows for years.

Once again, AP proved he could make a career out of looking good. With his success, he ventured in various business interests and the public patronized his endorsements. As all good things must come to an end, LRP wrapped up its last episode with all major performers getting noticed and assurance of a wider fanbase. Handling success in a field where he is considered new, was quite difficult for AP. While he seemed charming in front of the camera, some fans were saddened at his lack of interaction during mall shows. His contemporaries would be game to have selfies with fans, but AP was aloof. While things were supposed to go up, his next project, which people predicted would be another hit, was cancelled. In a snap, AP was left out in the cold. Business slowed down as well, as he was not as visible as before.

After sometime, AP finally landed a project with Cute Actor, but the expectation was not met. The project hardly made an impact. Months passed and the management remembered AP. He was given an important role in a project. Unlike LRP, this new project struggled with ratings to the point that sometimes, the rival show would have a higher rating every so often.

As soon as things settled, AP realized that if he wanted to continue his career, he has to reconnect with his followers and be humble. He has to use social to expand his reach. High visibility in technology can endear him with the audience. The question is if it’s not too late yet to establish better ties with his fans. One moment, you’re the toast of your network, then the next, you’re struggling and not knowing if you will get a next project. Such is the fickle-mindedness of showbiz.

‘Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. Humble people share the credit and wealth, remaining focused and hungry to continue the journey of success.’ - Rick Pitino

    1. Nope. Very accommodating yun sa mall shows. Tsaka may flop raw na show e wala pa naman ganun yun. His seryes were hits so far.

    2. Tugma yung ibang description but may mga bagay na hindi. Yung R na yun is mabait sa fans, even more mabait than his leading lady. Tsaka, wala pa syang nagiging show na hindi winning in the timeslot ang ratings.

    3. Definitely not. Marami ngang ramdom people having photos with him. This is J, kasama niya sa isang endorsement.

  10. Si X ito. May nacancel siyang serye with his kaloveteam dahil he pissed off the unit head. Flop rin yung project niya with an actor and actress na akala ng lahat malakas sa viewers. Hindi rin nagtagal yung serye niya nitong huli dahil mababa ratings. Alam ko may magandang role dapat siya sa isang serye but ibinigay sa dating KaH actor.

  20. Kung tama ako, this is R yung kakalipat lang sa KaH. Isa sa mga big stars ng Ka-F dati may jowa at mga kaibigan sa KaH. LRS- S show nya from a deacade ago big break nya yun. Yung show naman na na cancel ay A pero ilang taon pa bago ikinasa sa wakas ang show pero iba na ang mga gumanap at wla na sya sa edad. Latest show na nag struggle sa ratings ay B. Paano katapat din ung sikat na show sa KaH. So this is R. Tama??
