Karen Reyes on Traveling, Taking Risks

When Karen Reyes auditioned for Pinoy Big Brother six years ago, no one thought she’ll be sharing the spotlight with other well-known local celebrities. A proven risk-taker at such a young age, she admitted that her mom has no knowledge she’d be joining the reality show. Her attitude, having no fear to try new things, made her reach the title Second Big Placer of Pinoy Big Brother and from there, the bright future ahead her continuously placed her to where she is today.

Growing up from Oriental Mindoro, it is evident to Karen how low-key and approachable she is by the way she carries herself. Karen is full of happy thoughts; you hear nothing but all out fun from her. She’s a bursting bubble every time she answers questions. May it be about work, love, or life in general, an exchange of conversation with her is like a best friend chit-chat. She is very open, honest, and playful.
