On Saturday’s episode, November 25, of “Little Big Shots”, one of the guests was Ruhaina, “the suman girl” who happens to be the look alike of host Billy Crawford’s fiancee Coleen Garcia.
8-year-old Ruhaina went viral last year after a photo comparison of her and model-actress Coleen Garcia surfaced online. Several netizens couldn’t help but agree with the resemblance.
This time, she was invited to appear in ABS-CBN’s television show, “Little Big Shots” to share her story and demonstrate her talent of wrapping up a suman.
Billy affirmed that the two really share the same face, especially with the eyes and the nose. “Matagal mo bang kapatid si Coleen, na ‘di mo sinasabi sa amin?,” Billy said jokingly. [Are you and Coleen siblings, which you have long been keeping from us?]
As per the little girl, who was tagged as Coleen’s long lost sister, she was abandoned by her real parents and was raised by her uncle.
At a young age, she managed to help out by selling suman (rice cake) during her free time. From then on, following photos of her emerging on social media, she was tagged as the “suman girl” or “Coleen’s long lost twin sister”.
8-year-old Ruhaina went emotional when she shared her dream of finishing school and meeting her biological parents.
“Little Big Shots” is a Filipino variety television series which airs in the evening every Saturday after “Home Sweetie Home” and Sundays after “Goin’ Bulilit.” It features children aged 3-13 demonstrating their talents and engaging in a conversation with the host.
