The son of well-acclaimed actor Jericho Rosales has signed with the Viva Artists Agency, and it was solidified with a digital press conference last Thursday night, August 13.
However, Santino told the press that he will not pursue acting like his father, opting to put his focus on hosting and modelling.
"I don't have a passion for it," he says of the art of acting. "I was always taught growing up for everything I do, I have to have a passion for it so that I could do it with the best of my abilities."
He was also asked about his crush on a certain member from South Korean girl group Momoland, Nancy McDonie, and, since he is now part of a mainstream talent agency like Viva, would he grab the opportunity to work with the popular singer-actress, who has an upcoming Filipino series with actor James Reid.
"That's something I can't answer on the spot. Just because for a person, I wouldn't really bend my plans too much." Santino said.
"I look forward to meeting her, that's for sure," he added.
The host-model was also asked about his ideal girl, after answering that he is single.
"I think it has to be someone that I actually connect with and someone that can, not really match but compliment my lifestyle," Santino explained. "And as for physical, I guess the best way to describe is Nancy?"
