(SPOT.ph) Busy day, Spotters? We quickly recap 10 things you might have missed while you were off the radar.

 

1. A cute "Engineering professor" goes viral

Thanks to a Facebook fanpage, a random, cute guy has gone viral after a post said that he was going to teach Engineering subjects at Adamson University. But don't start trooping to the school just yet! According to a report from PEP.ph, Aidan Calvin Lynch is not an Engineering professor. In fact, he's nowhere near graduating just yet. The 18-year-old is actually a model and a second-year Computer Engineering student at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.

 

The confusion stemmed from an ambush interview at an Adamson University event, where he was asked which school he'd want to teach in, if given the chance. Naturally, he answered Adamson, and added that he would love to be assigned to the Engineering department.

"Otherwise, ang magsa-suffer niyan, 'yong viewers, na paulit-ulit na lang ang pairing," he explained. "Strong believer ako doon para magkaroon ng iba-ibang klase ng pairing na hindi nakakasawa."
