Her voluptuous figure is a relief from the reed-thin models who are the industry's standards of beauty. Add to this her glowing brown complexion, and no wonder she's in the running for the 100 Sexiest Women in the men's lifestyle magazine FHM.

Now, fame has come knocking at Bubbles' door. Together with Borgy Manotoc, John Joe Joseph, Ketchup Eusebio and Bernard Palanca, she currently hosts 'It's a GUY Thing', which premiered on May 24 at Studio 23. Though decidedly a lifestyle programme for men, the show needs somebody like Bubbles to bring a woman's viewpoint on the table.

Hosting is the next step in Bubbles' career path. 'I've been modelling for five years,' this 21-year-old Business Management student said. 'I decided to venture out into something different since I really love to talk.'

Bubbles even has her own blog which she updates every now and then to talk about anything — from her lost camera in Boracay to her view of The Da Vinci Code.

She added that her brother Paolo Paraiso, model and TV personality, has been supportive of her foray in TV showbiz. 'He is happy for me. He was the first person I called up to break the news,' Bubbles says.

Concerning the other Paolo in her life (Paolo Contis, her ex-boyfriend), Bubbles was decidedly mum. They broke up, she explained, because 'it didn't work out.'

Taking her brother's advice to heart (to not have a boyfriend yet), Bubbles is taking things slow and focusing her attention on It's a GUY Thing.

She said that she's happy with her working relationship with the four guys. 'I'm very comfortable with them because I've known them for a long time. It doesn't feel like it's work.'
