An emotional and teary Teoh Ze Tong emerged winner of Star Search 2019 on Sunday (Nov 3) at the Mediacorp Theatre, beating out 11 other finalists to clinch the title. In second and third places are Herman Keh and Ye Jia Yun respectively, while Vanessa Ho took home the Samsung Galaxy: Breakthrough Talent Award. Teoh, who still looked visibly surprised at the post-show press conference, said: “I’m not used to so many cameras. It feels very complicated. I didn't expect to win. Everyone did very well.” Asked if he would quit his job, the 26-year-old answered in the affirmative. “I will be joining Mediacorp for sure,” he said. “My manager (from my current job) is here and he saw my win.” First runner-up Keh, 23, also expressed interest in pursuing a career in acting, saying, “My mentor Christopher has changed my life. I'm very happy to have met him. I can't ‘play’ anymore. It’s time to get serious.” Ye, 17, who clinched third place, said: “My Mandarin isn't the best, so I will work on that and read more Chinese books. I hope to speak better at the next press conference.” READ: From 1,200 hopefuls to 12 finalists – who will win Star Search 2019 on Nov 3? The… Read full this story
