Atom Araullo, Broadcaster Heartthrob, Hosts Own Show 'Adulting' On GMA's Online Channel On YouTube

ATOM ARAULLO (for Alfonso Tomas) left ABS-CBN and just did two eye-opening docus for GMA-7, “Philippine Seas” that shows the current state our seas from Luzon to Visayas and Mindanao, and “Silang Kinalimutan” about Rohingya refugees from Myanmar living in a camp in Bangladesh. Atom has also finished shooting his first movie, “Citizen Jake”, for Mike de Leon, where he plays the title role. It’s not known yet as to when the film will be shown in theaters. And at GMA, he’s allowed to do endorsements so watch out for his TV commercial soon.

Now, he’s hosting a new online show on GMA’s online channel on Youtube, “Adulting”. This is part of a three-in-one show. The other shows are “#Goals” hosted by teen star Gabbi Garcia and “Fact or Fake” hosted by broadcaster Joseph Morong.

In “Adulting”, he aims to help millennials as they face the challenges of entering the world of grownups. This is very timely for him since, for the first time, he recently left his parents’ home at 35 and now live on his own. “I did because of the horrendous traffic situation,” he says. “I now live nearer to my place of work. It’s a big challenge as I’m starting from scratch. Natutuhan ko kung paano maglaba, maglinis, mag-budget. Magtataka siguro yung iba, hello, Atom, ngayon mo lang natututuhan yan, ilang taon ka na ba? It’s true, late na nga ako, so young people should really prepare for it. We can also about finding a job, how to move up the corporate ladder, how to improve their careers and their relationships. You see, adulting never ends and we seldom get direct help how about to handle these things. I feel a lot of young people can relate with all these very relevant issues and topics.”

Will he be giving tips about sex? “I know it’s such a taboo, but we have to talk about it to enlighten young people, but without malice. We’ll ask kung naranasan na ba nilang ma-friendzone, ma-seenzone, ma-kuyazone? The digital landscape is a growing battlefield we have to make sure we’re contributing something positive to human knowledge. We won’t claim to have all the answers but with the help of social media, we will encourage people to give us all their feedback, thanks to the highly interactive nature of the digital platform.”

“GMA One Online Exclusives with Adulting, #Goals and Fact or Fake” will start airing on New Year 2018, 5 PM at GMA-7’s official youtube account. Don’t miss it!
