After less than one year, she then got another hosting stint in Wazzup Wazzup, as one of their “tadjocks.” She also became one of the hosts of the early morning talk show called Breakfast.
Later on, Bianca moved to one of her mother network’s shows called Magandang Umaga, Pilipinas. However, it was during her stay in Big Brother: Celebrity Edition that she gained nationwide publicity, both good and bad.
