From illustration and graphic design to stardom—it might not sound like a logical career path, but it's definitely worked for Tom Rodriguez.
The former PBB Double Up housemate, Bartolome Alberto Mott by birth, hails from Arizona and Samar. He has parlayed his stint on the popular reality show into a flourishing showbiz career. He's already starred in Here Comes the Bride with the likes of Angelica Panganiban and comediennes Eugene Domingo and Tuesday Vargas, and he's putting his voice and his love for music to good use with the group VoizBoys. Right now, he's busy working on Petrang Kabayo with Vice Ganda. Of course, he managed to squeeze in some time to wow the ladies and walk the ramp at the 2010 Cosmo Bachelor Bash, and he even sang for us during an interview backstage! (Watch for the exclusive video!)
His career's definitely picking up at a fast pace, but since he's relatively new on the scene, we'd like to help you get to know him better. We asked Tom to tell us 10 wild facts about himself, and he didn't disappoint!
