Many celebrities in the Philippines have decided to join the 2019 elections.
But despite their advantage in popularity among the masses, not all of them were able to win.
Here is a list of the winners and losers among the celebrity candidates:
1. Bong Revilla Jr.
Based on partial results, it seems safe to assume that the former action star will become a senator once again despite being jailed for several years due to allegations of corruption.
2. Lito Lapid
The action star who recently appeared on “Ang Probinsyano” is going back to the senate as he is currently number 7 based on the partial results.
3. Vilma Santos
Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos was able to defeat Meynard Sabili as the representative of Lipa City, Batangas.
4. Edu Manzano
Vilma’s ex-husband Edu Manzano failed in his bid to become a congressman in San Juan. Vilma and Edu are the parents of actor-host Luis Manzano.
5. ER Ejercito
The action star was beaten by Ramil Hernandez in the race to become the governor of Laguna. He is the son of former President Joseph Estrada.
6. Gary Estrada
The former dramatic actor was not able to win the vice mayoral race in Cainta, Rizal.
7. Roderick Paulate
The former comedian’s bid to become the vice mayor of Quezon City ended in disappointment as he was defeated by Gian Sotto.
8. Jolo Revilla
Jolo will still be the Vice Governor of Cavite. He is the son of Bong Revilla Jr.
9. Jestoni Alarcon
The ‘90s actor will continue to be a board member of the first district of Rizal.
10. Yul Servo
The dramatic actor was also able to retain his position as the representative of Manila’s third district.
