He’s definitely a face you’d like to see welcoming your every morning and even capping the end of your every day. Reasons why, Gab Bayan is slowly but surely gaining a loyal following especially among viewers of his daily news-oriented programs on the People’s Television Network (PTV), “Rise and Shine Pilipinas” and “PTV News Tonight.”
For those who are still not aware, this Sangguniang Kabataan leader and rising news personality started out his television career as early as six years ago, initially as a model. A student leader then at the Far Eastern University, he dabbled into modelling on the side to make some extra bucks and just to have a stable supply of new photos to upload on his social media accounts.
“From there, dumating yung Eat Bulaga opportunity. Ire-rebrand daw yung Mr. Pogi. So sumali ako sa That’s My Bae. Pero to be clear lang ha, hindi talaga ako sumasayaw. Hindi ako dancer. Tsamba lang yun. I made it to the top 7 and that gave me the chance to dance on TV for the next two years,” he narrates. “Kumikita ako, sumikat ako, nakilala ako sa malls, at proud sa akin ang parent ko. Pero ang cons nun, napbayaan ko pag-aaral ko. Yung credibility ko as a student leader nasira, tapos nagkaroon na ako ng failing marks. It led me to depression. Hindi ko na alam kung sino ako,” he sadly recalls while citing the reason behind his eventual decision to quit.
While able to stay clear of the more “showbiz” side of the television industry in favour of the more serious side, which is the news, one cannot help but still notice him for his good looks, perfectly toned bod and sex appeal. Thrillmaker decided to engage Gab in a sexy conversation that he bravely answered for the sake of those who’d like to know him more “intimately.”
HOW DO YOU KEEP THAT “HOTNESS”? Dapat everyday, magsimula muna sa inner bago sa outer. Before I do anything in the morning, inaalam ko muna yung whys ko before the hows. Nagmamanifest kasi yun eh. Iba yung energy mo, itsura mo, pag araw-araw minomotivate mo yung sarili mo kung bakit ginagawa mo yung mga ginagawa mo. Meron akong non-negotiable values na pinanghahawakan. Kailangan ko alagaan ang sarili ko. Kailangan ko mag-aral everyday. Kailangan ko magbasa araw-araw. For me that’s being hot, di ba? Pag equipped ka with knowledge and information. Syempre kasama rin yung physical fitness. Kailangan healthy yung kinakain mo. Saka mahilig ako sa cycling, gym, at workout.

WHAT’S YOUR SIZE? ARE YOU HUGE? Size 10 to 11 ang laki…ng paa ko! Haha!
HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU LOST YOUR VIRGINITY? Thirteen. First year high school, first girlfriend. Mutual friend na nakilala ko lang sa facebook. So, first girlfriend, first ko lahat. First date, first kiss. All boys ako nung highschool. Sya naman from an all-girls’ school.
BEAUTIFUL FACE OR HOT BODY? Beautiful face. Kasi ang body can be worked out. Pwede yan mabago. Pero yung beautiful face, forever na yun eh.
BOOB, LEG OR BUTT GUY? Butt guy ako kasi I love it when I look from behind. Haha!
HOW DO YOU REACT TO GAY PROPOSALS? Syempre kahit naman sa modelling industry, sa showbiz, prone na talaga ako sa mga ganyan. I take it as a compliment. Pero it doesn’t matter if galing sa LGBT community o heterosexual, pareho lang naman kung bakla o babae, for me, flattering. So open ako kahit bakla man yung nagkakagusto sa akin o babae.
OPEN MINDED KA SA GAY RELATIONSHIPS? Straight talaga ako eh. Hetero relationships. Girls lang. Pero love natin ang LGBT.

SINCE YOU DON’T HAVE A GIRLFIREND RIGHT NOW, HOW OFTEN DO YOU DO IT SOLO? Me kadate-naman ako ngayon. So medyo madalas and no need to do it solo. Hehehehe!
WHAT IS THE DEEPEST, DARKET SECRET THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH US? That I was a high school kickout, prior to becoming a student leader. Kickout ako ng highschool. I was involved in many gangs in Pasig and Marikina. I was involved in a lot of gang fights. I’m the family black sheep. Now looking back, I’d say it all happened for a beautiful purpose.
PINAPALUNOK O PINAPA-MUKHA? (Question inspired by Mr. Fu) Pinapalunok. Mas nakakabusog yun pag nilulunok.
