MANILA — While many showbiz personalities were successful in their election bid — whether as a political neophyte or returning aspirant — many, too, fell short of clinching their target positions in the national and local levels.

Foremost is presidential candidate Isko Moreno Domagoso, an actor who successfully transitioned to politics. The incumbent Manila mayor placed fourth in the race for chief executive, based partial, unofficial results with 98.14% of votes transmitted.

Another TV star-turned-politician, Sen. Tito Sotto, meanwhile settled for third in the vice-presidential race. 

Aside from Moreno and Sotto, here are other celebrities who lost their bid in the 2022 elections:
