Enrique Mari B. Gil V or simply ENRIQUE GIL, as what he is popularly known today, is fondly called by his closest friends and relatives as QUENITO because of his Spanish roots. His nickname is QUEN and that's what he prefers to be called. He was given ENRIQUE GIL as his screen name in honor of his father (Enrique Amadeo B. Gil), not to mention that he and his brother Javy both have the same names (Enrique Javier B. Gil).
On the day of December 16, 2010, during a live episode of Shoutout, diverse individuals (originally from different fan groups) decided to unite and create a group called QUENATICS with one common denominator -- ONE LOVE FOR ENRIQUE GIL. It all started when one of the Quenatics wrote "I Love Quenatics" in a short brown envelope -- Enrique's very 1st fan sign for Quenatics. At first, Quen being the most humble of all and the guy who still-does-not-consider-himself-as-famous type, treated it as a joke and laughed about it. But since then, Quenatics showed all-out love and support to Enrique Gil always and in all ways -- from mall shows, tv guestings and taping visits every now and then until it grew on him. Right from the start, Quen never fails to reciprocate the love in every possible way he can. Huli man kaming dumating, simula no'n, hindi na kami tumigil..
"Walang magbabago, walang magsasawa"
Origin: One time, one of the Quenatics hugged Quen and said: "Quen, wag magbabago ha.." he smiled and answered, "Wag magsasawa ha.."
How to be part of QUENATICS official fanlist:
Make your first post in the current thread of Quenatics by telling us your name, age, location.
If your name is not yet in the list, someone will welcome you by adding your name to the updated fanlist or you can just add it yourself.
Simple as that: WELCOME TO QUENATICS!!!
Rules on posting:
This thread is our home. This is where we get to interact, chat and share QUENtos with fellow members. So make sure that our home is filled with nothing but GOOD VIBES.
One post per day is okay but you can post as many as you can everyday.
As much as possible, all topics must be related to Quen and his whereabouts. There's Twitter for other unrelated topics.
At the end of each thread, top PEXers will be rewarded by getting a group video greeting from Quen.
Every member who gets a chance to have an encounter with Quen (anything and everything, whether personally or not) is semi-required to share his/her QUENto to everyone.

Everything started back when Enrique Gil and JM de Guzman were guests in Gandang Gabi Vice. Enrique taught Vice and the audience how to do the dougie and then boom, he trended effortlessly on Twitter WORLDWIDE!!! Thus, bagging him the "Dougie King / Dougie Prince" and the "Trending King" titles coz everytime he does the dougie, the whole world can't help but swoon over him, as seen on his consistent twitter dominations.

Note: We coined the term "QUENto" for our stories about Quen. Anything and everything about Quen, we post them here! Here's a sample:
Si Enrique Gil, kapag dinadalaw ng Quenatics, kahit pagod at puyat na at kahit fresh pa ang mata sa kakaiyak.. haharapin nya kami ng nakangiti at wagas ang yakap. At syempre hindi mawawala ang super bentang laughtrip, sobrang puro kalokohan lang Dito ko naramdaman yung sinabi nya sa Quenatics na: "You guys make me stronger." Kasi sinabi nya din dati na kahit gano kangarag yung eksena, kapag andiyan ang Quenatics, GV na siya at nakakawala ng pagod.
Nandito lang kami parati, Quen.. Lahat ng pagod, hirap at puyat mo sa bawat ginagawa mo ay worth it naman dahil susuklian namin ng bongga at walang sawang suporta. Tandaan mo yan
