Full Name: Christopher John Alandy Dy Tiu.
Birthday: July 15, 1985
Birthplace: San Juan City, Metro Mnila
Showbiz anniversary: December 2007
Why did you enter show business?
It was actually by accident but making long story short I was offered a hosting gig and a program together with Manny Pacquiao called Pinoy Records so I wanted to try and I wanted to meet Manny.
What do you consider as the turning point in your career?
I guess basketball was when we won the championship for Ateneo. UAAP Championship in 2008 when I was a team captain and was a senior and I got so many endorsement offers and media projects and people really tried to follow me when who I was…
For showbiz, I guess… wala eh, there is no turning point…
