Tita Matet describes Baby Baste: “Mauutusan mo na siya. Hindi siya yung batang matigas yung ulo.”


If you're a fan of GMA-7 noontime show Eat Bulaga, it will be hard to miss Baste.

He's three years old, and his cheeks are so plump you'd love to pinch them.

Here are a few fun facts about Baste, culled from a feature on him in Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho last July, and his social media accounts.

1. Baste's real name is Sebastian Benedict. He was born in General Santos City on August 22, 2012.

He has 237,000 Facebook followers to date.

3. Wondering how he became part of Eat Bulaga!?

Well, he is not related to anyone in the show.

Ryzza Mae Dizon noticed the cute boy from among the audience of her talk show The Ryzza Mae Show. That started his Dabarkads story.

Cuteness over cuteness!
