MANILA, Philippines - Celebrity host Bianca Gonzales met Disney star Joe Jonas during a private dinner on Tuesday night.
"Actually maswerte ako at na-meet ko itong si Joe Jonas kagabi sa isang intimate dinner. Although bawal talaga ang camera at crew, gustong gusto niya ang Pilipinas," Gonzales said on "Umagang Kay Ganda" on Wednesday.
She learned that Jonas even asked for some tips from his friend, FIl-American Broadway actress Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, on what he should do and try in the Philippines.
"Maganda daw ang sinabi ni Anna Marie tungkol sa Pilipinas," Gonzales said. "So far nage-enjoy siya sa mainit na pagtanggap ng mga Pinoy sa kanya. At saka sa mga fans niya gwapo siya sa personal."
Jonas, who is part of the popular group Jonas Brothers, arrived in Manila on Tuesday.
Jonas is the newest endorser of Bench, placing him alongside "American Idol" finalist David Archuleta, "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale and "The Vampire Diaries" actor Michael Trevino.
