A Blank White Canvass, that is how Paolo Ballesteros can be described.
Paolo Ballesteros started in showbiz as a matinee idol who was once paired with Ciara Sotto. But his star became more recognizable when he became one of the regular hosts of the Philippines’ longest running noontime TV show “Eat Bulaga.”
More than hosting and giving away cash prizes together with the comic duo Jose and Wally in the noon-time show’s segment “Juan for All, All for Juan,” Paolo was able to capture more fans through his celebrity impersonations.
From Miss Universe 2011 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup to Miss World 2013 Megan Young, Paolo can be dubbed as the new Jon Santos (if not more superior) in making people get awed for his sheer sophistication.
Just recently, Paolo was featured in different international websites (read here) and even caught the attention of International Supermodel Tyra Banks(see here) for his #MakeUpTransformation post on his Instagram account.
As I remembered, the Instagram “Copy-celebrity” posts started as a challenge by Eat Bulaga co-host Joey de Leon. Paolo was challenged by Joey to do a make-up that will look like Marilyn Monroe. And to Joey’s surprise, Paolo did it remarkably, one cannot even notice a trace of Paolo on the picture but only Marilyn. Paolo was given a free-trip to Hong-Kong by Joey for fulfilling the challenge. From then on, many female celebrities has become Paolo’s subject.
Some of the most notable faces that Paolo copied were Miley Cyrus, Tyra Banks, Taylor Swift, Marilyn Monroe, Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Audrey Hepburn, Gloria Diaz, Megan Young, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, and Beyonce.
Here are the pictures of some of the many faces of Paolo Ballesteros that caught not only the Philippines’ but World’s attention.
