Personal life

Ballesteros is related to Filipino painter Fernando Amorsolo, his grandfather, and fellow celebrity Eula Valdez, who is his aunt.[1]

He was romantically involved with Katrina Nevada, with whom he has a daughter, Keira Clare.[2] Through an Instagram post, Ballesteros came out publicly as gay in April 2017;[3] he is now in a relationship with Roland Ochoa Anog.[4]



In 2001, Ballesteros joined the noontime show Eat Bulaga! as segment host for the campus pageant "U-Bet", with fellow newcomers Phoemela Barranda and Derek Ramsay. After "U-Bet" ended its run, he was immediately elevated to regular host status. His daily exposure on the show and immense rapport with the veteran "Bulaga" hosts won him a wide fan base.

In 2002, he was nominated for Best New Male Personality at the Star Awards for Television. He won the award, besting fellow nominees Dennis Trillo and Railey Valeroso. He also started appearing in other TV shows like Ikaw Lang Ang Mamahalin and Kahit Kailan of GMA-7. However, he was best known for his wacky stint in the now-defunct GMA sitcom Daddy Di Do Du as Danica Sotto's boyfriend. Soon after, he was cast in movies like Pakisabi na Lang and Anghel sa Lupa of Regal Films.

In 2003, Ballesteros' TV stints were limited only to Eat Bulaga! and Daddy Di Do Du however he was kept busy by performing in comedy bars like "Klownz" and "Zirkoh", which are owned by fellow Eat Bulaga! co-host Allan K..

He made his name as a young host/TV comedian, and was then paired with Ciara Sotto. Their team which started in the "Bulagaan" segment of Eat Bulaga! soon branched out to other TV shows. They did Season 7 and 9 of Love to Love which gained high ratings. They were also paired in Enteng Kabisote 3. However, their pairing soon ended when Ciara quit Eat Bulaga! to perform in concerts abroad.

In 2007, Ballesteros' appearance on the daily noontime show Eat Bulaga! was reduced to a weekly stint on Saturdays. His other TV show, "Daddy Di Do Du" ended and was replaced with Fulhaus. While on free time, he was included in the digital sci-fi independent film Xenoa where he was involved in several difficult action scenes. After Xenoa, Ballesteros was included in the cast of Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan as one of the main villains of the show (the other being Jay Manalo). He plays Ida, the transvestite grandson of Kuuma Le-ar. The role of Ida of Zaido paved his way on becoming a household name in primetime television. Ballesteros became more famous due to his role as Precious Paola Nicole in BEBOT segment of Eat Bulaga!, where he won the title in 2005. After Zaido: Pulis Pankalawakan, he returned to Eat Bulaga! on weekdays. He later joined the cast of Dyesebel which also starred Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes. In 2009, Ballesteros played "Afie" in the drama Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang where he worked with Marian Rivera for the second time.


In 2010, Ballesteros worked with Claudine Barretto in an episode of the GMA drama-anthology Claudine where he once again played a transvestite. Unlike his previous gay roles where his characterizations were described as "campy" by some critics, his role in that particular episode as a vengeful transvestite half-brother of Barretto drew rave reviews.

In the later part of 2010, Paolo unofficially formed a comic trio with Eat Bulaga! co-hosts Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola when they were assigned to host the show's segment "Juan for All, All for Juan". In this segment, Paolo and his co-hosts visit different barangays and give various gifts in cash and kind to the lucky homeviewers.

Later in 2011, Ballesteros won Eat Bulaga!'s EB Universe 2011 contest as Ms. Philippines' Shamcey Mwah Mwah Tsup Tsup (parody of Shamcey Supsup) in a special episode.

He also joined the cast of I Heart You, Pare!, starring Regine Velasquez and Dingdong Dantes. Paolo portrayed the role of Vodka, a drag queen. Vodka was the star performer of Club Love and Tonette's (played by Regine Velasquez) biggest rival among the club's gay performers.

To this date, he is kept busy with his hosting job in Eat Bulaga! doing a segment for "Juan for All, All for Juan" along with the comic duo Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola.

However, in March 2016, he was reportedly suspended from Eat Bulaga! for six months due to the rants he posted on his Facebook account regarding the live show set-ups like about the catering and others.[5] During his suspension, Ballesteros spent his time in portraying his main roles in two different movies: Die Beautiful and Bakit Lahat ng Gwapo May BF?. Ballesteros returned to Eat Bulaga! in September 5, 2016.[6] Ballesteros won his first international Best Actor award for playing his role in Die Beautiful in 29th Tokyo International Film Festival.

Impersonation and makeup transformation

Ballesteros is renowned for his various impersonation of female and male artists and has earned international acclaim for his makeup skills.[7] To this date, he has posted pictures of his numerous makeup transformations through his Instagram account, transforming himself into the likes of Tyra Banks,[8] Caitlyn Jenner,[9] Angelina Jolie, Mariah Carey, Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Stewart, Lucy Liu, Rihanna, Demi Moore, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone, Katy Perry, Madonna, Megan Fox[10] to a name of few, as well as local artists like Marian Rivera, Nora Aunor, and Vic Sotto.[11]

For the 2016 Tokyo International Film Festival he impersonated two female celebrities. First one was Angelina Jolie (calling himself "Angelina Magdangal") during the red carpet and opening ceremony, in an Emerald Modern Filipiniana Fishtail black velvet terno gown, with typical squared sleeves, black opera gloves and black high heels.[12] On the awards night and following press conference he emulated Julia Roberts, wearing a gold sequin dress with white high heels and white opera gloves.[13]
