Young CEO and Kapamilya actor Gino Roque rose to fame when he joined Pinoy Big Brother Otso in 2019. His popularity opened the doors of the entertainment industry and he seems to juggle his business and showbiz well.
In this episode of Kapamilya Chat Level Up, Gino mentioned that his family is very private. But for the sake of granting fans’ demand, he welcomed us all in their huge modern house that gives off a rustic resort-like ambience.
Gino brought us first to the cozy couch area overlooking the pool area. The living room is his go-to place for relaxation. “Especially ‘pag kailangan ko to take a break kasi the view is very nice and very presko lang siya,” he said.
The whole living room is spacious and homey, with comfy chairs and couches arranged all around. Guests are welcomed in a wide area so zen and immaculate. Wood elements blend in with the exquisite paintings, sculptures, and a big aquarium. Although the tour was limited to the living room only, it was easy to know that the Roque abode is a massive nest full of elegance and style. Gino also hinted at owning a mini basketball court inside.
The episode’s guest hosts Tan Roncal and Aljon Mendoza gushed over his huge house and said they want to go there someday. They also noted how he remains simple and humble despite his impressive background.
