While the ABS-CBN Ball 2023 was an unforgettable night of gratitude, one of the highlights was seeing the biggest stars, showbiz veterans, and some of the most popular couples coming together under one roof.

Saturday’s star-studded event included executives from former network rival GMA, and Senators Grace Poe, Lito Lapid, Sonny Angara, and Joel Villanueva as part of the guest list.

But many of the oohs and aahs came from those who were surprised to see the return of “Hunks” members Jericho Rosales, Piolo Pascual, and Diether Ocampo, who were seated together in one table.

The all-male group was formed in the 2000s, which also included Carlos Agassi and Bernard Palanca. They have since parted ways, with the five actors pursuing their own careers.

“Big, big hugs from us three. Let me find the other two and get back to you. We WERE “The Hunks.” Google mo,” Rosales wrote on Instagram.

Another noteworthy moment was Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban, dubbed as the industry’s “teleserye queens,” enjoying their twinning moment in one of the photo booths.

“Ang sa Iyo Ay Akin” stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Iza Calzado, meanwhile, were a far cry from the bitter rivalry of their characters as they were spotted laughing while drinking wine.
