Ateneo volleyball player tries hand in TV hosting

The star player of the Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) Women’s Volleyball Team is the newest TV host in town.

Gretchen Ho, the pretty varsity player who wears jersey no. 3, has accepted hosting a show on Balls cable channel. The network focuses on sports television, mostly notable sports events in the Philippines and abroad, and also other sport-related shows.

The 5’7” Gretchen is also known for being the apple of the eye of young actor Robi Domingo, who incidentally was her batch mate at Ateneo. She admitted that she and Robi are exclusively dating but they are in no rush to be committed.

Although she admitted that the actor is very supportive of her decision to enter showbiz, Gretchen said her decision to try TV hosting has nothing to do with Robi’s courtship.

The Ateneo Management Engineering student said the challenge of hosting will provide her an opportunity to pursue other endeavor to maximize her growth and potential growth as a person. She related that she has hosted basketball games and also campus events.

The chinky-eyed star of the volleyball court also hopes that venturing into hosting will also provide her with an avenue to be a good influence on the youth.

As host, Gretchen looks up to Bianca Gonzales, also an Ateneo graduate, whom she sees as an empowered woman.
