Montano, a staunch supporter of Duterte was appointed as chief operating officer of the Tourism Promotions Board, ABS-CBN News reports.
Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo told Inquirer that Montano wasn’t her choice for the position but said she will ask him to be involved in the department’s big events starting next year.
“This will be a learning process for him. He will help us in the holding of Miss Universe,” Teo said.
Montano joins a list of celebrity appointees in the Duterte administration, including Aiza Seguerra, Liza Diño, Kat de Castro, Arnell Ignacio, and Jimmy Bondoc.
On a lighter note, Montano might be the perfect choice for his new role in the government since he portrayed our national heroes like Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio which probably makes him...nationalistic. Right?

Montano also seems to be the best choice to help promote and organize the Miss Universe pageant to be held early next year since we all know how good he is at accommodating women; just ask Maria Ozawa.
Goodluck and do your best in your new task, Buboy!
