Fil-Brit 'Eat Bulaga' Bae Kim Last Enjoys Being The Comic Relief In The Hit Youth-Oriented Morning Show, 'Trops'

KIM LAST is the Fil-British guy who made waves in “That’s My Bae” of “Eat Bulaga” and is now seen in two regular shows, “Trops” every morning at 11:30 and “Sunday Pinasaya”. He also appears in “Eat Bulaga”, like a few days ago when he did a Rico Mambo number with Baeby Baste. Born in London on January 20, 1997, he’s the youngest of three kids of a Pinay mom and a British dad.

“I came to Manila to really try showbiz,” he says. “My sister is very beautiful pero ayaw mag-showbiz. Ako lang ngayon mag-isa rito sa Manila kasi all my family, nasa London. When I came here, hindi ako marunong mag-Tagalog but now, okay na, although nabubulol pa rin.”
His full name is Kim Michael Last, shortened to Kim Last. “Para madali raw tandaan kasi you save the best for last and the last will be first,” he quips.

Is it true he had a girlfriend who’s an Eat Bulaga dancer? “Yes, but only for two months. It didn’t last kasi I realized hindi ko kaya pagsabayin. We tape ‘Trops’ three times a week. Sobrang busy. She understands naman na I really came her to have a career, not to have a love life.”

In “Trops”, he’s the jolliest member in their “tropa”. “Ako yung laging nagpapatawa. Comic relief ako, laging nagjo-joke, so viewers know me as a comedian, pero gusto ko rin mag-try ng drama. We're all happy sa 'Trops' kasi ang kasabay namin, yung Kim-Gerald show na itinapat sa amin, pero hindi kami nagpapahuli sa ratings.”

His colleague in “Trops”, Joel Palencia, got involved in a scandal kissing another guy. What can he say about this? “Hindi naman totoo yun. We all know Joel and we know it’s not true.”
Isn’t he scared of being involved in a similar scandal? “Walang lalabas na ganun sa’kin. Maingat ako.”
