Victor Basa

Name: Victor Basa
Bday: June 6, 1985

Victor Basa is one of the hottest male models in the Philippines. If there’s an up and coming “it” boy, it would have to be Victor. Nephew of legendary scene shaker and designer Paolo Basa, Victor has the right combination of pizzazz and pouty lips that will make any Zoolander wannabe melt with insecurity. He’s also a photographer and an indie scene player, which makes him even more interesting than any other new model from around the block.

Victor began his modeling career at the age of 19, where he was discovered at the Mega Young Designer’s Competition in 2004. His first big debut was the Cosmopolitan Bachelors Bash, and his first TV appearance was in a 2004 in a cracker commercial. After immersing himself deeper into the fashion industry, he developed a deeper appreciation for style and clothing, swiftly gaining a reputation for the edgy rock-inspired style he and his friends wore. This led him to leave Computer Science at LaSalle Taft and enter LaSalle College International as a student in fashion design. Being the only one supporting himself financially, he had to leave school to concentrate on working.

In 2005, Victor became a model for clothing retailer Penshoppe. In 2006, he was invited to sign on with Star Magic. He quickly began to appear in a number of shows on the ABS-CBN network: He became a regular host of the weekly Sunday variety show ASAP ‘06; appeared in his first recurring primetime supporting role in the soap opera 'Crazy for You' as a love interest of the leading lady portrayed by Toni Gonzaga; and landed supporting roles in two single-episode stories in Star Magic Presents.

Also in 2006, Victor was cast as a regular cast member of Abt Ur Luv (a youth-oriented drama series that will span the entire second season of Star Magic Presents), where he is partnered with fellow Star Magic talent Carla Humphries.

In 2007, the new MTV Philippines signed on Basa as one of the channel’s new VJs. He hosted MTV Timeout.

He was one of the housemates of 'Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition Season 2'(2008) but did not win the reality show along with fellow hunks Baron Geisler, Jon Avila and Will DeVaughn.
