She appeared to be camera-shy when she skipped the red carpet of the premiere of "Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral," which stars her boyfriend, Kapamilya star Paulo Avelino.
But judging from her Instagram account, Filipina-Australian Jodie Elizabeth Tarasek, a 22-year-old model and TV host, is anything but.
In her latest blog, Tarasek, who has been dating Avelino for more than a year, describes herself as an "introvert-extrovert."
She started modelling at the age of 6, moved to the Philippines two years ago, studied psychology, and fell in love with her life in Manila. "It's all different and that excites me," she told Pep.
She also works as a host for MTV Asia.
