FALLEN PINOY IDOLS

After getting caught partying in San Diego, four contestants of a Filipino American Idol/Big Brother style talent show have been booted from the program’s support tour.

Pinoy Dream Academy features twenty aspiring performers living in the “Academy” for four months of multimedia training by guest star instructors. While the most recent top-six contestants made a tour stop in San Diego last month, four of them (along with guest star Yeng Constantino) “spent their last night in San Diego imbibing spirits and smoking in a non-smoking room in the hotel where the group was billeted,” according to Manila Standard Today.

“Yeng reportedly puked on the carpet, while the other intoxicated [contestants] lost their sense of propriety, spilling cigarette butts from the ashtray onto the floor.”

Show producers at Dream Big Productions say the quartet - Chad Peralta, JayR Siaboc, Panky Trinidad, and Irish Fullerton - violated the company’s strict rules against drinking and smoking while on tour.

Trinidad was additionally booted from the band Cebalo, which is “managed” (actually owned) by Dream Big; Filipino newspapers are quoting his reaction as “I don’t have to take this sh_t.”

Peralta has reportedly moved back to his former home in Australia, Siaboc returned to the village of Toledo City, while Fullerton has relocated to the U.S, to live with her mother near San Francisco. The next season of Pinoy Dream Academy is in production.
