One of the celebrity hunks that most girls have crushed on is kapamilya actor, Paulo Avelino. May it be the leading role or the villain, his acting skills are so on point, he caught the eye of many directors and producers.
Looking closer, Paulo’s heart apparently belongs to a Fil-Aussie beauty that was recently revealed on social media. She’s gorgeous, beautiful and she’s won the heart of the kapamilya heatthrob. Now fans and netizens are curious as to who this special woman is.
Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek is a Filipina-Australian beauty who spent her childhood in Australia but had always expressed how much she loves the Philippines. She claims that she’s always proud to be Filipino and that it’s the hospitality and friendliness of the people that she loves the most.
In an interview she expressed her love for the country, “I’ve always loved my Filipino side, and I think that probably the biggest influence that kept me here is that, I’ve traveled around Asia, and I’m not just saying this because I’m half-Filipino, but the people, the friendliness, the hospitality, all of that attributed to why I stayed here. I made such a great group of friends like my life is here now.”
Jodie admitted that she was scared to try modeling before but her friends and family had encouraged her and now she models for Australian brands and independent labels.
She had plans to go to Hong Kong, Thailand and travel Asia, however her agent Richard Yu had encouraged for her to stay in the Philippines which gave her ample time to love the country. She said in a statement, “Actually I wasn’t meant to come to the Philippines. I was meant to go to Hong Kong, Thailand, and travel around Asia. My plan was to stay here for one month but one month turned into two. I guess, from there I just said I’d give it a go and things just started progressing from there.”
She and Paulo had confirmed their relationship in 2017 and is apparently spending quality time together whenever they can.
