After 14 years, actor-singer Jay-R Siaboc revealed that didn’t receive the condominium and Belgian Waffle franchise prizes after ending up as first-Runner up in Pinoy Dream Academy.
Firstly, Siaboc reposted an art-card from Wish 107.6 on his Facebook account, congratulating him on getting 25 YouTube million views.
He wrote that he would have preferred getting a check so that he can experience payment for singing.
After that, he revealed not getting the 1st runner up prize for PDA. He also added that he still hopes to receive them especially now that he doesn’t have a job.

“Nung Nag 1st runner up aq sa PDA(Pinoy Dream Academy)kasama Sana sa premyo q ay Condominium at franchise ng Belgian Waffle, pro sad to say both di q natanggap Ang mga to,di q alam kung makukuha q pa ba to,pro sana at ngayon nman sa mga kanta q WLA na nman aq natanggap.
“Sa panahon ngayon na WLA tayo trabaho di maiwasan maalala ang mga bagay na sa tingin moy dapat sana ay sa iyo,. Well Panginuon nlang cguro Ang bahala at nkakaalam..,
God Bless & Be safe sa lahat,” wrote Siaboc.
In 2018, Siaboc revealed in an interview that his manager took all his money even his condominium prize from PDA. He alleged that his manager Mario had a joint bank account without the singer’s consent. Then, Siaboc added that Star Magic tried to help by starting a dialogue between the two in which Mario promised to return his money and condo. However, to this date, his ex-manager has yet to keep his promise and even ignored the singer altogether.
On the other hand, PDA Grand Winner Yeng Constantino sgot a Suzuki APV and fully furnished, three-bedroom condominium from Globe Asiatique back in 2007. Constantino and Siaboc were alumni of the 2006 singing competition similar to Pinoy Big Brother’s format.
