Bianca Gonzalez

Bianca GonzalezBianca Gonzalez, born March 11th, 1983 in Manilla, Philippines is a Filipina TV host and model. She is married to PBA cager J.C. Intal.

"Hi! My name is Bianca Gonzalez. I am a TV host, writer, advocate, and now, I am a YouTuber! I wrote a book called #PaanoBaTo, which gives advice from different people about life, love, career, even family, friends, and self."

"Then I decided to turn it into a YouTube video series! I hope you find it insightful and I hope you come back to my YouTube Channel often."

"My sister told me about a contest when I was a freshman in college, and I was walking in the mall with her. Some might call it the “usual how a model was discovered story”, but for me, it was anything but usual."

"People don’t believe me when I say that I am a very shy person, but I really am! Plus, I looked very awkward my whole grade school and high school life and never considered myself to be model-worthy."

"After some prodding from my sister, I had my photo and info taken at a contest booth in the mall. To my surprise, a week after, I found myself the winner of a search that would fly me to Kuala Lumpur to meet other winners from the Asean region to shoot a major shampoo tri-media campaign."

Bianca Gonzalez"How lucky can a girl be?! It was way beyond any dream I could ever have for myself, and it 'accidentally' happened. My start in the world of modelling came at a time of my life when I was just trying to be comfortable in my own skin, and when I was still trying to find which of my interests I would pursue as a possible career."

"Modelling definitely helped me boost my confidence and it opened my world in ways I never knew possible. So many of the friends and workmates I hold dearest to me I met in this industry. And I will be thankful forever."

"I graduated college with a major in Communications and a minor in Philosophy. My dream was really to be a writer slash director, and to pursue further film studies after a bit of experience in local production work."

"My first job in ABS-CBN came when I was a junior in college. I worked part-time as a brainstormer for the Creative Development Group. Basically, we would come up with concepts for new TV shows to pitch to management."

"I often sat in meetings that lasted the entire day, squeezed my creative juices out, stayed at the office until midnight, wrote sample scripts, and literally ran after bosses to present concepts."

Bianca Gonzalez"After a year of doing that job, and by the way, I was still modelling on the side, I was asked by my now-friend and then-handler Jet Valle if I wanted to try out to be on TV."

"Again, I am a painfully shy person, but by that time I had around three years of modelling experience, so I already knew how to “turn on” my confidence. My older brother JC was at that time, a host for the now-defunct morning show “Breakfast”, so I said, maybe I can try out hosting."

"A movie review show, morning show, youth debate show, housemate stint later, I now find myself proudly hosting entertainment newscasts like SNN and E Live, and the local franchise of the worldwide hit reality show Big Brother. Who would’ve thought? I just feel so blessed!"

Gonzalez first hosted GameChannel Extreme with Iya Villania, Chase Tinio and Aaron Mempin. Her first ever on-cam career in ABS-CBN network however was for the now defunct show, Review Night which she hosted with Ryan Agoncillo in Cinema One.

Bianca GonzalezIt was in high school when I discovered that I enjoyed writing. Whether it be my class play or a video presentation, doodles on my notebook, or just a bit of fiction, I found that I liked expressing myself through words.

Fast forward to when I was a Junior in college, and online social networking sites weren't big at all. A roommate of mine, Ala Paredes, introduced me to blogger. The thought of having an "online journal" appealed to me because I've always wanted to keep a journal, but never had the patience to fill it up.

So something online seemed like a right fit for me, because instead of an actual notebook I had to keep and bring around with me, all I had to do was click, click, click to see my journal.

So it was in September of 2003 that my blogsite was born. I decided to name my blog "superbianca.blogspot.com", with the disclaimer, "the diary of a supergirl wannabe".

Fast forward again to this day day, my blog is actually almost 17 years old! Wow. I never imagined my blog would live this long! Plus, in the industry I am in, not a lot of my colleagues have blogs.

I would like to think my blog, "the diary of a supergirl wannabe", has gone from something that made me different and set me apart, to a chronicle of the years in between.
