A native of Bolinao, Pangasinan is currently making waves and is becoming a household name in Indonesia. He is Leo Consul, one of the 14 hosts of the first international franchise of “Eat Bulaga” in Indonesia. He is the lone Filipino to host an Indonesian show and he literally brings Pinoy touch to the variety show.
Who is Leo Consul?
Consul is a graduate from University of the Philippines Baguio with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts. Before he was given a big break in hosting in Eat Bulaga Indonesia, he was connected to ABS-CBN Regional Group and hosted regionally-aired TV shows. In his official Twitter account, he said that the strong competition existing between artists and the tough challenge of making it big in the Philippines made him decide to move to Indonesia in 2011. Aside from hosting, he was introduced as a member of the dance/R&B vocal trio RiS3 (read as “rise).
Eat Bulaga Indonesia premiered last July 16 and kicked off consistently with high ratings. Consul shared that the success of the new show lies on its format. He said that it was the first variety show in Indonesia.
Eat Bulaga Indonesia is aired Mondays to Sundays through SCTV in Indonesia.
