Learn five new things about Nel Gomez in less than five minutes!

  1. What's your biggest achievement so far? "Winning the 2009 MYX VJ Search 'cause I totally didn't expect to win. When I won, I just cried and went ballistic because I really didn't expect it. It was really a blessing that I was able to become a VJ and experience how it was for a good year."
  2. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? "To fly. I've always wanted to fly from building to building para iwas sa traffic."
  3. What can a girl do to put a smile on your face? "Smile back at me."
  4. What are you happiest doing: acting, hosting, or singing? "That's tough. I've always been a performer so singing and dancing would be no. 1 on my list. But I started to enjoy hosting, and then on Good Vibes, I started to enjoy acting. I guess if I have to choose, I'd have to pick singing. It's always been my thing."
  5. What's the most common misconception people have about you? "That I'm mayabang and that I ignore people. I’m not, though; I think I’m a nice guy. I think! (laughs)"
