Kiko Rustia Of 'Survivor Philippines' & 'Born To Be Wild' Now The Face Of Victory Liner's Premiere Prepaid Visa Card For Travelers

KIKO RUSTIA gained fame for his derring do in the very first “Survivor Philippines”, which was shot in Thailand and opened doors for him to be a TV host. With his signature Jack Sparrow dreadlocks, he did the docu-environmental magazine GMA-7 show, “Born to be Wild”, that took him to various places all over the country. After this, he hosted his own show, “This is Pinas”, and became an international print model for Benetton who posted his photos all over Europe.
Now, he’s staying most of the time in Boracay. “I got married and my wife up and I put up our own bed & breakfast hotel in Diniwid Beach, the quieter side of Boracay,” he says. “Before ‘Survivor’, talagang sa Boracay na ako nakatira but after I joined ‘Survivor’, I lived in Manila for a while. Now, that I’m a family man, I’m back in Boracay, where me and my wife also met, and we love our laidback lifestyle there. We now have two kids na magkasunod pinanganak, our son Rai Franco who’s 2, and our daughter Raia Franchel who’s 1. I also have a son from a past relationship, Pao, who's now 16. I miss doing all the adventures I did on TV, like going to beaches, mountains and caves. Now, I’m back to hosting and producing travel videos for Victory Liner, which travels up north to Baguio and Cagayan Valley. Entitled ‘Know Your North’, we’ve done videos on Mt. Pinatubo, Zambales, Bataan, Baguio and soon, Cagayan. You can watch them on youtube and on victoryliner.com.”

He’s now also the endorser of Victory Liner for its new offering, Victory Liner Premiere Prepaid Visa, a reloadable prepaid card in partnership with Metrobank Card, where you can reserve and book your travel tickets online and also enjoy perks and discounts in participating establishments in Manila and Luzon. It also acts like a credit card and ATM card where you can send or get money from your loved ones through their Pera Padala feature.

There will be loading stations at all SM malls & stores, Robinsons, National Book Store, Family Mart, San Miguel Food Ave., and various pawnshops. This will be available at Victory Liner stations starting December 21, 2017.
