“Kasi ako ’yong tipong bata pa lang, binu-bully na nila ako. Parang pinangungunahan na nila ’yong gusto ko. Kunwari, gusto kong mag-basketball. Inaasar ako ng mga kaklase ko: ‘Bano! Bano! Bano!’ ’Tapos, gusto ko mag-ayos ng buhok, ‘Ampanget mo. Ikaw pinakapanget dito.’”

He did not let the criticisms get in his way, because he became a varsity basketball player, a member of a successful dance troupe, and was declared as the first runner-up in their school pageant.

His fame today started from a mere question asked by his make-up artist and cousin, RB Chanco, who inquired if Ronnie wanted to attend acting workshops in Star Magic. Without a doubt, Ronnie agreed, and then he tried his luck in becoming a part of the “It’s Showtime” mainstay group, Hashtags.

At first, he thought that he would not make it because he had an allergy attack during his audition.

“May allergy ako sa hipon. Hindi ko alam kung ’yong kanin o sabaw ata ’yong nakain ko na may hipon. Hindi na ’ko nakapagsayaw. Nag-allergy ako, buong katawan, ’tapos di ako makahinga, parang made-deads na ’ko. Dedo na. Diniretso na ako sa ospital.”
