Melisa “Melai” Cantiveros is a 31-year-old Filipina actress, comedian, host and known as the fifth female Big Winner of the reality show, Pinoy Big Brother, having won Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up in 2009.
It was in 2015 when she won the first season of the Filipino version of “Your Face Sounds Familiar”. She is currently one of ABS-CBN’s contract talents. She currently hosts a morning talk show, Magandang Buhay, alongside Karla Estrada and Jolina Magdangal.
It was on September 8, 2013 when she revealed in an interview with Boy Abunda in the episode of The Buzz, that she is getting married with Jason Francisco on December 9, 2013, and was pregnant with their first child. On July 26, 2016, however, she and Jason confirmed their separation from their marriage of almost three years through their daughter’s Instagram. They have since reconciled, and at the same time, announced that they are expecting a second child.
With all the success she has now, a lot of people were surprised to know that she had helped the hit-quake people in Mindanao without the public knowing her deeds. That is why a lot of people were surprised to know that aside from Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin, she also has a big and helpful heart for those affected people in Mindanao.
A certain netizen named Jasper Abalos shared some photos of Melai’s donations together with a “thank you” message. According to the post, Melai wasn’t able to bring the donations by herself but the mere fact that she helped really had a big impact to those people who had been affected by the series of earthqÜake.
Darla Sauler is one of the popular personalities who praised the admirable work of Melai. She said that other people will not be aware of what Melai did if it wasn’t for the netizen’s post. She was really impressed with Melai’s kind deed and good heart.
