Hopefully, I'll look thinner onscreen when I am a guest on "The Debutante" on Qtv Channel 11 in the coming weeks. The Debutante is a reality show that seeks to find a lady who will become the "It Girl" role model of the year. The show is not your regular beauty pageant style reality show. It emphasizes as much on personality and intelligence as on appearance. (Below) here I am with host Marc Nelson and all of the contestants during their "Intramuros" challenge plus a disruptive Italian tourist that barged in on the taping. The Debutante airs every monday night at 7:00pm on QTV11. I was also surprised to realize that the show was done in English. It's been a while since I have seen an all English program on a public channel in the Philippines. Perhaps it's an attempt to improve our English proficiency? Whatever the case, congratulations to QTV11 for promoting the English language on television once again. I always believed we would be better off as a fully bilingual country.
