Shell Rimula holds grand finals for ‘tsuperstar’ drivers
Pilipinas Shell held its much-awaited Shell Rimula ‘Tsuperstar’ Grand Finals last October 5 at the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall with Carlito Vergara of Northern Luzon emerging as overall champion.
The event where Vergara bested Rodrigo Belarmino and Roland Salazar was a culminating activity of Shell Rimula in support of the country’s jeepney drivers, and showcased the diverse talents of these acknowledged ‘tsuperstars.’
The Shell Rimula “Tsuperstar” project is the energy leader’s campaign that recognizes the efforts of jeepney drivers from all over the Philippines who work day and night to provide a brighter future for their families.
After making it through the auditions and regional finals, 10 finalists from five regions in the Philippines made it to the grand finals to compete for the “Ultimate Tsuperstar Champion.” Vergara went home with a three-year supply of Shell Rimula and a cash prize of P500,000.
The grand finals was also a night of celebrity performances, games, and raffle prizes. “KaJoda’s Choice Award,” which came with a P10,000 cash prize, and the “People’s Choice Award,” which was given to one of the 10 tsuperstar finalists, were also awarded that night.
Present during the event was actor, TV personality, and Shell Rimula ambassador Coco Martin, who gave the attendees and grand finalists a special performance accompanied by rappers Smugglaz and Bassilyo. The finalists were also given an opportunity for a meet-and-greet with Coco.
Coco himself comes from a family of jeepney drivers and he’s not one to hide this fact. His grandfather made a living driving a jeepney and was able to provide for his family and meet the needed expenses in raising his children. Coco’s father continued this particular family legacy and provided for the family by driving a jeepney as well.
According to Recca Menchavez, Brand Manager for Shell Rimula, Shell Rimula has always been on the side of Filipino drivers everywhere. Whether they drive jeepneys or UV Express vans, Shell Rimula is their most-trusted engine partner. Their continuous hard work to provide for their families is the reason why Shell considers them the real ‘tsuperstars.’
“We call them ‘tsuperstars’ because we believe that they are not only some of the most hardworking people in our society, they are also the most under-appreciated. We count on them to take us to work or to school, but we really don’t get to thank them enough,” said Recca.
