Paulo Lingbanan Avelino, Igorot

If what reached me is right, Paulo Avelino‘s middle name is Lingbanan (her Mom’s full maiden name is Jennilyn Lingbanan) from Bontoc, Mountain Province. That makes him an Igorot. I’m just wondering why he never mentioned it. Is he one of those parents ko lang ang Igorot? Or is he trying to distance himself from Marky Cielo to avoid possible backlash from those who think that one Igorot is enough for StarStruck?

He might have preferred to say he is from Baguio because it’s where he grew up (Marky only went to Baguio for college studies). Anyway…

Father:Roberto Avelino of Cagayan, Samar and Quezon City
Mother: Jennilyn Lingbanan of Bontoc; Bagnen, Bauko; and Bangaan, Sagada all in Mountain Province

Tubong Baguio si Paulo at alaga ni Joey Diego na discoverer ni Biboy Ramirez and Kris Martinez. Dati nang commercial model si Paulo among which ay sa isang Globe commercial. Para marating niya ang dream na maging artista, kailangan niya pang maglayas sa bahay nila dahil hindi siya pinapayagang mag-showbiz ng pamilya niya. Nakitira siya sa mga kaibigan niya sa Manila para makapag-VTR siya, at dahil uso ang Korean actor, na-in siya. May hawig kasi sa Korean actor na si Hyun Bin, leading man sa GMA-7 Koreanovela na Kim Sam Soon. Singing and dancing ang talents ni Paulo, one of the boy singers ng StarStruck. Tomorrow, sa Rajah Sulayman, pipiliin na ang Final 14 and we’re wishing na makapasok si Paulo dahil sayang naman ang pinaghirapan niya, just to reach this point, kung mababalewala lang din. Sina Jewel Mische of Bulacan and Steff Prescott of La Union ang mga crush ni Paulo. [source]

  3. remember si alma moreno ay igorota at maputi siya. ganun siguro si paulo. proud naman siya sa pagiging igorot niya at lagi niyang pinasasalamatan ang mga kailyans niya sa blog niya. hindi lang niya pinangangalandakan kasi baka sabihin ng iba na ginagamit niya ang pagiging igorot niya para sumikat.

    keep voting for paulo! delikado na naman siya. medyo average lang ang performance niya sa leakage drama episode ng SS. let’s bring him to the final 6 at ipanalo natin siya sa SS. keep voting and campaigning for paulo! ubusan na ng load.
