A new “Kuya Escort” is here! Meet Ion Perez, the newest hunk who has gotten all of us smitten on the Miss Q & A Intertalaktic 2019 Wit Lang segment.

Who is he? Ion Perez is actually the reigning titleholder of Mister Universe Tourism 2018, an international pageant held in Pasig City in May. 

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, the 27-year-old Ion shared his humble beginnings from Concepcion, Tarlac. He helped in the family business of selling rice cakes, specifically in the preparation and packaging of the food products.

During the same interview, Ion also shared that he had no ambitions in joining the male pageant. It took three years for his friends and relatives to convince him into joining the contest. According to him, he saw the pageant as an opportunity to help his family with their financial problems.

Now, Ion brings his unmistakable charm and appeal as the current Kuya Escort on It’s Showtime. Although it’s still just been days since Ion began appearing on the show, he already made an impact on the madlang people. And with this, we will all surely get to know him even more as the days pass.

Let’s all welcome Ion to the It’s Showtime family!
