We survey the social media stars of each UAAP team—let’s start with Taft! (Photo
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That’s exactly how Instagram among other social media accounts became hot public property when it debuted in 2010. No one was spared, even our favorite athletes have become addicted to this thriving app, taking online their supposedly private (mis)adventures through a dump of photos. Through the follow button, we fans have established an unusual connection with these reluctant stars, all while getting to know a part of their personality. We take a campus tour of the eight UAAP member schools, to get to know some of each team’s most heavily followed members! First up: These social media sensations from the De La Salle Green Archers!
Who to follow: Thomas “@iamthomastorres” Torres
No. of followers: 91.6k
Why you should follow him: For the veteran Torres, it’s always been about fam. From posts about his mom and athlete sibs, to his team, to the crew behind his various endorsements, this guy will incite an “Aww!” for his sweet captions. And then there’s his sense of humor, too. Case in point: Welcoming all those “Bimby” comparisons with open arms!
Who to follow: Ben “@benmbala) Mbala
No. of followers: 7.1k
Why you should follow him: He made his private account public recently, maybe after he realized it’s time to accept he is a private figure no more. This monstrous star, rising so for his historic dunks this season, is quite a softie come to think of it. When he’s not posting vacation shots and game photos of him, it’s snaps of his mom and nieces back in Cameroon that he would upload.
Who to follow: Ricci “@ricci06rivero” Rivero
No. of followers: 24.3k
Why you should follow him: LSGH alumnus Rivero, who is now enjoying his spotlight share with his speed and show-stopping play, also proves “hot” on Instagram. The workout groufies with brothers Rasheed and Prince, vacation shots of him in just swimwear, outtakes of his various photos shoots—fangirls could only let out a scream.
Who to follow: Kib “@kibomtalbo” Montalbo
No. of followers: 15.6k
Why you should follow him: Ball is indeed lyf for Montalbo, whose Instagram posts are mostly about his games and exploits with his teammates.
Who to follow: Jeron “@jeronalvinteng” Teng
No. of followers: 411k
Why you should follow him: Ahh, the brightest star of them all. Teng is no stranger to being a hot property online being a one-time champ and Finals MVP. Plus, being an endorser of multiple brands. Lately, this graduating Archer has been shutter-happy of his whereabouts with girlfriend, former DLSU courtside reporter Jeanine Tsoi. #JTxTJ fans, of course, got only crazier.
