In an interview with pep.ph, Ian Batherson claimed he wants to be like Sam Milby. He said, "To be honest, he's one of my idols here. Kasi parehas ang sitwasyon namin. We were the same age when we left [the States]. Nagsimula siya ng modeling, ako din nagsimula ako nag-model. Tapos nag-enter siya sa PBB [Pinoy Big Brother], nag-enter ako sa StarStruck. Tapos, 21... I turned 21 last week."
"So, parang I look up to him a lot. Kasi pagsimula niya, hindi siya marunong mag-Tagalog, like not even a sentence. So, pag nakita ko na si Sam, parang there's talagang hope for me. Like puwede na ako maging artista dito. Siya talaga yung motivation ko. Oo nga, hindi ako marunong mag-Tagalog masyado. But Sam Milby, he risked it all tapos ngayon he's one of the biggest stars here. I was like, you know, Sam Milby did it, so why don't I try? He's a motivation for me. He's awesome to make it this far."
Hmm. A Starstruck finalist idolizing a an ex-PBB housemate? That's new. And refreshing. :D
