PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA NEWS TV:
"This Saturday, GMA News TV’s newest docudrama Wagas: Mga Totoong Kuwento ng Pag-ibig brings to light the humble beginnings and inspiring love story of one of today’s most successful celebrity chef, Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro.
"Chef Boy’s childhood is not as catchy and delightful like his phrases Ping! Ping! Ping! and Yum! Yum! Yum! in his programs Idol sa Kusina and Kusina Master. Chef Boy, who hails from Samar, comes from an underprivileged family. Traumatized by his father's womanizing, he vowed to himself that he would remain faithful once he meets the woman of his dreams.
"Chef Boy moved to Manila in search of a job to support his family. He started as a dishwasher before he was promoted as a cook. It was thru his co-worker that he met the woman of his dreams: Mely.
"Despite having to work abroad in search of greener pastures, Chef Boy remained true to his vow. Even with his newfound fame and fortune, Chef Boy continues to be a loving partner to Mely and father to their four children.
"Portrayed by Mike “Pekto” Nacua as Chef Boy and Isabel Oli as Mely together with Buboy Villar as young Chef Boy, catch the rags to riches story of Chef Boy Logro and how destiny led him to his one true love in Wagas: Mga Totoong Kwento ng Pag-ibig this Saturday, 7 pm, on GMA News TV Channel 11."
