Where are the top contestants of the Star Circle Quest Batch 1 now, after more than a decade since the well-known season of “artista search”  ended?

We are still seeing Sandara Park, Joross Gamboa, and Neri Naig in several projects until now, but how about the others who had been included in the Magic Circle of 10?

On YouTube, WhatsUp Pinoy posted  a “Where they are now?” video of the top Star Circle Quest Batch 1 contestants.

Joseph Bitangcol in is now busy doing indie films, theater plays, and out-of-town shows. He is married with a non-showbiz woman, Frenchesca Tonson.

Melissa Ricks, the fifth placer, has become more focused on motherhood. After she gave birth to her daughter with boyfriend Charles Togesaki, she is no longer seen on television that much. Likewise, Roxanne Ginoo, the third placer, accepted less projects upon giving birth to her first child. Two more kids after, she decided to be a hands-on mother and left showbiz. She recently had a comeback project with Jhong Hilario though.

The “morena” beauty Michelle Madrigal studied culinary arts abroad and went back to the country in March 2017 for the wedding of her sister, actress Ehra Madrigal. Few weeks ago, she announced that she is pregnant with her longtime boyfriend.
