When asked by Locsin why he auditioned on PGT, the 26-year-old pole dancer from Quezon City revealed he is hoping for the show to be his stepping stone in joining Cirque du Soleil, the largest theatrical producer in the world.

"Dream ko po na maging part ng Cirque du Soleil pero gusto nila face to face audition. Hindi man ako nakapagtapos ng pag-aaral pero nagpapasalamat ako sa talent ko dahil eto ang naging source of income ko para makatulong sa family ko," Villanueva added.

"Pag ginagawa talaga na galing sa puso, walang imposible. Pinakita mo sa amin ngayon yun," judge Robin Padilla said.

"Ang pole dancing kasi parang buhay, kapag nahawakan mo na wag mo nang pakawalan at baka makuha pa ng iba," Vice Ganda joked.

Villanueva received four yeses from the judges.
