Robi Domingo says he is “very happy” this Valentine’s season


TV host Robi Domingo will not be spending this year’s Valentine’s Day all by himself.

As their guest editor for the month of February, the 29-year-old star recently sat down with ABS-CBN Lifestyle to do a live Q&A, where he had to answer questions from random netizens on fitness, his experience as a Pinoy Big Brother alumni, and, in the spirit of Heart’s Day, relationships. 

A few minutes into the interview, Robi was already confessing to a never-before-heard gaffe that he experienced as a then-new host of PBB

At the time, he was instructed to deliver a spiel on top of a truck. He had his script prepared, his stance ready for the camera to roll, when it suddenly started to drizzle. 

Ang nangyari, I was reading something, eh. Tapos siyempre, nabasa ng ulan. Wala na ‘yung script ko,” he said.

About to cap off his live spiel, Robi suddenly found himself struggling to read the last line and ended up blurting out “G” instead of “Toni Gonzaga.” 

“You get thrown out in that field during eviction night together with the best of the best hosts, Toni Gonzaga, Mariel [Padilla] Luis [Manzano], Bianca [Gonzalez]. My gosh, [imagine] the pressure.

Kung malakas ‘yung Twitter no’n, siguro pakong pako na ako,” he said.

 

While on the subject of PBB, Robi revealed that he’s in fact still close to some of his batchmates, particularly Rona Libby, who was dubbed in the show as ‘The Prisoner’s Daughter’. 

“Si Rona still connect with my parents, kasi during that time, she doesn’t know what to do. Ayaw naman niya masyado mag-showbiz because she wants to finish her studies.

Ang nangyari, she consulted with my parents, tapos ngayon, she’s living the dream of becoming a doctor. Proud of you, Ronsky,” he said.

Of fitness, the TV host said that he tries to be active as much as he can so as “not to make my body look good, but to feel great.” 

“I got a trainer who is there for me all the time, and then kailangan ko lang mag-schedule. I’m trying my best to go to the gym every single day,” he said.

 

 

In August last year, Robi revealed that he‘s dating again, following his controversial breakup with athlete-turned-reporter Gretchen Ho. 

While he refused to name who the mysterious woman is, he has been spotted with non-showbiz girl Maqui Pineda as his special date in different occasions.

Would they be spending Valentine’s Day together as well? Well, all Robi could say is that he is “really happy” this love season. 

“I’m really happy because I got someone with me right now. I prefer not to disclose a lot of information, but she’s there in my life,” he said.
