Most of the showbiz personalities now are products of Pinoy Big Brother. We have have observed and saw how they got that popularity through the years. But there are also others who were not able to continue their showbiz careers immediately after the PBB edition because of some reasons.
There are some who chose to prioritize their studies first while others just suddenly disappeared from the industry due to their own reasons. Just like Tricia Santos. Do you still remember this “Athletic Muse of Davao”? Well, she’s one of the housemates of PBB Teen Clash 2010 edition.
She wasn’t seen in showbiz then until this time the WhatsUp Pinoy channel on YouTube just found how she’s doing her life right now. Tricia Santos has just a cute and charming face, no wonder she was linked to James Reid and Ivan Dorschner during her stay in PBB. And according to WhatsUp Pinoy, she joined Mariel Rodriguez to host the afternoon edition of PBB Teen after she was evicted.
As they stated, Tricia enrolled at the University of Sto. Tomas in 2013 for her undergraduate studies and joined the golden tigresses. In school year 2015, she transferred to De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde and joined the Lady Blazers varsity volleyball team.
She had also shed her cute image when she debuted as an FHM babe in 2015. But rumors then came out saying she suffered from Anorexia Nervosa -a lack or loss of appetite for food (as a medical condition) because she got really thin. But she dismissed that issue and admitted it was because of depression.
And she said in an interview:
“I think it’s about time to show people I’ve recovered from it and to show other girls who were suffering from depression that they can recover from it.”
Tricia is now 22 and currently studying and modeling. Her modeling agency is the same as Maureen Wroblewitz’ agency here in the Philippines which is the Prima Stella Management. And the channel confirmed that the two are good friends. Tricia was even there during the ASNTM finale viewing in Palace Pool Club to support her.
And she also went back to television and now a part of Wattpad series of TV5 which is lead by Richard Juan and Myrtle Sarosa.
Tricia is indeed one of a kind brave woman because she was able to lift herself up despite the depression that she have encountered. Well, her fans are really happy seeing her again. She’s really back with beauty and confidence.
