We first came to know Karen Reyes as a housemate in Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition 4 back in 2012. She was just 16 that time, dubbed as the “Hagikgik Chick ng Mindoro” because of her cheerful personality. Karen was open about her lonesome past in her family due to her father’s death and her mom’s struggles to provide for their financial needs.
On PBB, Karen showed us her true character. Although many audiences didn’t seem to like her at first, everyone grew to admire Karen’s genuineness eventually. With this, she finished victoriously in the end of the competition and was hailed as the Second Big Placer.
After her successful journey in PBB, Karen continued to shine in the industry. She had numerous appearances on various Kapamilya shows and also to hit movies like “She’s Dating the Gangster,” “Beauty and the Bestie,” “My Ex and Why’s,” and “Mama’s Girl.”
In 2016, Karen joined It’s Showtime’s all-girl group called as GirlTrends. But it wasn’t long before she decided to leave the group in 2017.
Karen frequently acted on the real-life crime drama anthology Ipaglaban Mo. She also appeared on shows like Maalaala Mo Kaya, Wansapanataym, Minute to Win It in 2017, Family Feud, The Promise of Forever and Magandang Buhay.
Recently, Karen appeared in a supporting role as Emilita "Emmy" Gomez, best friend to leading lady Julia Montes of the afternoon drama series Asintado. She also did a guest appearance on JoshLia’s first teleserye together, Ngayon at Kailanman, which ended in January.
Apart from her career’s continuous progress in this industry, Karen also continues to achieve happiness in her personal life.
Last April 2018, Karen willingly opened up about having an official romantic relationship with Raymund "Sarkie" Sarangay. Sarkie is the vocalist of the OPM band Silent Sanctuary. Even though Karen has a 14-year age gap with her boyfriend, they actually are a perfect match according to Karen.
Having a progressive career, a happy love life and a gorgeous body, Karen is indeed enjoying her life as of now! Take a look at how blissful Karen lives her life now in these incredible photos.
