MANILA -- It appears Maria Ozawa has found love just in time for Valentines' Day.
Last Tuesday, the former adult film star posted a photo of herself going out on a date with Filipino, Jose Sarasola.
According to his Instagram page, Sarasola is a chef and an owner of a sports bar in Parañaque. He was also a contestant of "Pinoy Fear Factor," the localized version of the international franchise reality show that aired on ABS-CBN in late 2008.
This was not the first time the two were seen together. Sifting through Ozawa's own Instagram page revealed that she spent Christmas with Sarasola. She has also visited Sarasola's sports bar a number of times.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan Philippines back in 2010, Sarasola said his stint on "Pinoy Fear Factor" was one of the "best experiences" of his life.
"Going to Argentina to shoot 'Fear Factor' was amazing. Plus, getting bitten by an anaconda was freaky but memorable," he shared.
Sarasola also admitted to harboring celebrity crushes for Kapamilya stars Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis. "Not because they’re really pretty, but because of how they act. Kasi talagang kakaiba 'yung acting nila and I know them kasi, so even if they’re my friends, I find them really pretty in and outside."
