Paolo Ballesteros is a TV host of a popular show in the Philippines called Eat Bulaga. It’s a variety show that on at noon and has been on the air since 1979. Ballesteros is like the Ryan Seacrest of the Philippines. That’s why he is famous there; he is famous here for another reason; his amazing transformations.
Paolo has taken a segment from his show called, Super Serenya where he would dress up like famous women and surprise audience members, to going viral with it on Instagram. The unbelievable transformations have no restrictions. He can be anyone, any race, any age.
He has gone from Niki Minaj to Lucy Lu. On his Instagram account he posts before and after pictures and swears that there is no photoshop involved at all. All he uses is wigs, colored contact lenses and make-up skills that he says he taught himself from Youtube. One transformation takes hours for him to complete but more often than not the results are worth it.
He says his favorite celebrity is Angelina Jolie because she’s easy,
. “Angelina is very easy to do, I put big lips and I look like her already
Not quite; but a valiant effort. He has some faces that he knocks out of the park, like his Miley Cyrus, and some that make him look like a drag queen on Halloween like his Tyra Banks.
All in all I have to say it’s a pretty good job. If you are wondering if he likes to dress in drag because he’s gay, Ballesteros would like you to keep wondering. He says,
. “What you see is what you get. Now, if you’re asking if I’m gay, I’ll say no. It’s up to you to be confused.”
Straight or Gay you have to say his make-up skills are amazing. Here are some of our favorites.
