Born Antonio Manuel Fausto, this 22-year-old ‘bibo’ kid is no stranger to hosting and performing. While taking up BS Communications Technology Management in college, this dean’s lister also worked as a student jock at Monster RX 93.1 for over two years and hosted various school and corporate events on the side.
Definitely not a shy guy when it comes to speaking, Anton also hosts a weekly podcast with his mom, best-selling author and finance expert Rose Fres Fausto, where they discuss family and financial matters, among other topics.
Anton’s first love though was dancing. At an early age, he was trained by no less than world hip-hop dance champions, the Philippine All-Stars. He eventually followed their footsteps to international success, representing the country at the World Supremacy Battlegrounds in Australia where his group INDK won first place under the Monster Crew division. Today, he continues to teach dance fitness and choreography—a skill he further developed in college as a member of the Company of Ateneo Dancers.
But his list of talents does not end there. Growing up, Anton learned how to play the guitar to the songs of his favorite OPM bands like Hale, Itchyworms, and Sponge Cola. Also a fan of different genres, his music taste ranges from Frank Sinatra to Shanti Dope. Ultimately, his favorite artist in the world is Chance The Rapper whom he got to meet twice—once in Manila and another instance in Paris, back when he was studying in France.
As for his ultimate goal, his quick and easy answer is to be the “Ryan Seacrest of the Philippines”. Rather than hosting a singing competition like Seacrest though, his dream is to host a dance competition or any dance-related show, perfectly fusing together his love for hosting, dancing, and music.
Catch VJ Anton on the following shows: MYX Daily Top 10, Pop MYX, Pinoy MYX, My MYX, and MYX Wer U At.
