"PANTAXA: LAIYA" is a reality show that aims to choose the next Viva SEXY stars. 

There are 8 Contestants:  Angelica Hart, Audrey Avila, Aiko Garcia, Apple Dy, Aria Bench, Aila Cruz, Armina Alegre and Cess Garcia.

This is hosted by Rose Van Ginkel and Wilbert Ross. The mentors are former Viva Hot Babes Katya Santos and Maui Taylor, as directed by Paul Alexei Basinillo.

The show will premiere on April 23, 2023, with six episodes. 

These eight sexy ladies will surely make summer even hotter in “Pantaxa: Laiya”, where they bare it all to be the next Vivamax stars!    

Meet the ladies who will undergo various physical, mental, sensual, and sexual challenges set at the beautiful beach of Laiya, Batangas. 

Angelica Hart is the perfect cross between voluptuous and cute. At a young age, she’s already very confident about herself. Her showbiz experience makes her want to achieve more. This pure Filipina has a height of 5’2 feet. 

Audrey Avila is a young tattoo artist from Quezon City, born to Filipino parents. She stands 5’5 tall, and her deep, sleepy eyes give her a mysterious aura. She is gender fluid and is comfortable with the rebel type.

Aiko Garcia, with a height of 5’2 feet, could be mistaken as a teenager because of her amazing smile and fresh looks. She has lived a very modest life in Zamboanga Sibugay, making her determined to rise from all the hardships.    

Apple Dy is the quintessential urban girl who’s got her own place in BGC. This gorgeous lass with a height of 5’6 feet, has Filipino, Spanish and Chinese blood. She likes living the high life: driving fast cars, firing guns, and once had an experience of being an equestrian. 

Aria Bench is known as the life of the party among the Pantaxa girls. She is effortlessly funny, and her comedic style will remind you of Rufa Mae Quinto. Standing at 5’5 feet tall, she also has a modelesque vibe. 

Aila Cruz is pure Filipina but has mestiza features.  This Ilongga beauty, stands 5’6 tall, with a subtle bombshell body. She may be one of the younger girls, but among all the Pantaxa girls, she is most likely to act as the big sister. 

Armina Alegre, is a soldier’s daughter who exudes both toughness and vulnerability.  Aside from her height of 5’5 feet, her pouty lips and doe eyes are also her assets. She has no qualms about being involved in “girl love”. 

Cess Garcia is the youngest among the Pantaxa girls. At first glance, you’d think she’s shy, but Cess defies all first impressions. She is actually street smart, feisty, already filled with a lot of “hugot”, and can put up a fight if she wants to. 

“Pantaxa: Laiya” also brings together some of Viva’s hottest stars to keep the ladies company. Wilbert Ross and Rose Van Ginkel serve as the show’s hosts,.

Maui Taylor and Katya Santos act as the girls’ coach-mentors during their one month lock in shoot in Laiya, Batangas.
