PBB CE2 Housemate #4: Ruben Gonzaga
25-year-old Ruben Gonzaga is the “Komedyanteng Promdi” or “Comedian from the Province.” Gonzaga, 25, is a Davao-based comedian, who popularized the “Budotz dance” there. He hopes to make it into the big league and help his family out of poverty.
Although relatively unknown in Manila, Ruben is quite a celebrity in Davao. Working for ABS-CBN Davao, Ruben is popularly known as a member of the channel’s Joke Squad. He is also a stand-up comic in various bars with his trademark screaming faggot act. He’s become so good at it that everyone who sees him perform assumes he is gay. But this comedian is actually a ladies man and is already married with 2 kids.
Ruben is most famous in the South for “Budots”, naming his crazy dance steps after the slang term for bum in Davao. But despite the fame, Ruben is struggling to keep his head above the water. Right now, he is earning enough to get by and doesn’t want his family to experience the impoverished life he had before. Ruben is working hard to help his parents and finally buy his dream house.
