This is your third time modeling for FHM. You must really like us!
Masaya, the production is so good, nakaka-miss din, and I’ve been modeling for seven years. My previous experiences were exactly like this, everyone was helpful and very supportive.

Your name’s unique. Where did it come from?
Sabi ng parents ko it was “given by God.” They only wanted three kids, then after a while when my dad was in and out of the country, nabuntis si Mama. So given by God, kasi wala sa plano.

Do people talk about your name a lot? Yes, people are really impressed with
it. Tinatanong nila, “What’s your name?’ And I say Given. Then they always ask, “Okay, what’s your name?’ They ask for my ID. When they don’t see me, akala nila guy.

If they only knew. What else do you do besides modeling?
I have a TV show on GMA-7, every Saturday after Imbestigador. It’s called Comedy Bar, with Eugene Domingo and Mr. Allan K.

What’s the show all about?
It’s a comedy show, ha ha! It’s like you’re in a comedy bar but it’s conceptualized in a studio. So we have standup comedians, improv skits, yung mga may birthday, babatiin sa stage and lots of
jokes, of course.

How is the TV environment different from modeling?
It’s very different. With modeling, you’re not in front of the camera so you can be yourself. Unlike on TV, you should be perfect and comfortable all the time. You should be pleasant. Pero okay naman because with me, yun naman ang gusto ko. Friendly naman ako so okay lang, ha ha!

Are you a funny person? Do you have a humorous side?
Maybe that’s why they hired me for the show, kasi nakita nilang gullible ako and fit naman dun sa show. I’m not a comedian in the sense that I can just throw jokes, but they do train us.

Are you like that in person life, very humorous and vibrant?
Oo, kapag malungkot ka lapitan mo lang ako, uuwi ka na nang masaya, ha ha! I’m very positive in life.

Speaking of positives, are you in a relationship right now?
Right now, wala. My guy and I actually just broke up recently. Actually, it was already rocky last year. We tried to fix it but maybe because I got into different jobs and projects, parang hindi na siya ganun ka-supportive. It’s stressful to me.

So what does a busy girl like you look for in a guy?
I just want a guy who’s understanding, but that’s what all girls want. With me, pag bago pa lang kayo, they will let you feel that they’re all that. But if you’re in a certain situation they become stricter. They should keep an open mind and be supportive. Yun ang kailangan ko, I need an inspiration. I go out and work every day, stressful na yung mundo na ginagalawan ko. At the end of the day, I need someone who supports me at yung hindi manunumbat.

Any final words to the readers?
Keep on watching Comedy Bar every Saturday! Sa modeling naman, I’m faithful to all the clients who have supported me over the years, they’re a blessing to me. They give me the inspiration to continue modeling. For aspiring models, no matter what kind of projects they’ve done, huwag lang silang maging mayabang. Wag nilang kalimutan yung pinanggalingan nila.
