Billy Crawford Stars at KIX New Reality TV Series - The Ultimate BROcation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I actually feel a bit sad seeing Billy Crawford all grown up because that would mean I am now very old. Lol!

You want to know why? Because I used to just watch the guy back during the days he was still a small kid at a TV talent show called That's Entertainment with the late German "Kuya Germs" Moreno.

Unfortunately, I have to reveal my age that I'm officially too old already..hahaha.

Seriously, I grew up watching the kid Billy (Joe) Crawford, and then I also noticed back then that he disappeared from showbiz, only to see him again being an international star famous for dancing. Then I watched him joined the noontime show It's Showtime as a co-host with the likes of Vice Ganda, Anne Curtis Smith and Vhong Navarro.

The guy indeed has a knack for humor so I'm excited to see how he will go along with three other guys who are said to be crazy as well. Knowing Billy who grew up outside the Philippines too, he must have easily got a bit of bromance with the other stars of this new reality TV show called The Ultimate Brocation which was set in lovely Hong Kong.

Billy has even played as a gay security guard in one of his movies so it means he's "game" for almost anything. Though that photo of him with the guys on a hut tub still wearing their shirts was a bit alarming it just shows these guys are probably still too shy to show off their six-pack abs....hahaha!

Part 1 of the host interview with Billy Crawford, Part 2 and other parts during the Q&A, are still being uploaded and will update in this blog as soon as available

Of course, there was also Coleen Garcia (his girlfriend now)  included on the It's Showtime family, of which back then they were not yet together, so I'm assuming the two slowly fell in love on and off the set.

Imagining five days of "no girlfriend" for me could have been just tolerable even for Billy who obviously had enough quality time with Coleen already based on the many photos we see of the two at different parts of the country and the world.

But now that Coleen is no longer with It's Showtime as co-hist, I'm sure Billy always looks forward to every opportunity with Colleen after the show.

However, the 5 days in Hong Kong was all-expense paid or sponsored trip so Billy and the three other guys must had a great time knowing they were not spending a single centavo enjoying the tourist spots, attractions and culinary treats of Hong Kong.

At the media launch for The Ultimate Brocation, Billy told us all about his ultimate favorites. We had them all on video so be sure to watch it when it becomes available online at our YouTube channel at
I asked Billy to do a video invite so you could all watch the show, as well as the two of us doing the iconic Wazzup Pilipinas shout out and greeting.

We also have a video interview with Andy Chang, Senior Vice President of Advertising Sales, Marketing and Original Productions, Celestial Tiger Entertainment, who told us a lot of interesting information about The Ultimate Brocation.

Follow Four Famous Guys Through Five Episodes of Fun and Exhilarating Adventures as They Experience The Ultimate Guys’ Playground, Hong Kong

There are days in a man’s life, when he just wants to lay low, hang with his bros and go on a crazy, wild adventure – away from the girlfriend, the wife or the family. Well, coming this December, action entertainment channel KIX is debuting its brand-new reality show, The Ultimate BROcation, to give viewers a glimpse of that male fantasy!

The Philippines’ own R&B / Pop star, Billy Crawford, stars in this hilarious, five-episode reality series following four famous Southeast Asian celebrities who meet for the first time in an unforgettable, testosterone-fueled vacation in Hong Kong.  Joining Billy on the “brocation” are award-winning Malaysian hip hop artist SonaOne, Thailand’s “bad boy” DJ and TV host P.K., and Singapore’s maverick chef Bjorn Shen. Bringing these four strangers together is Hong Kong martial arts movie star Philip Ng, who has invited them to join him on an all-expenses-paid trip full of authentic, tailor-made experiences offering the best of his hometown.

"We are very excited to work with Hong Kong Tourism Board and Endemol Shine Group to create this KIX original production. The Ultimate BROcation is a fun-filled ride that guys will relate to and ladies will laugh at! The show captures how four guys who don’t know each other can bond over shared experiences in a foreign land. I think our viewers will really enjoy the bro-bantering between Billy, SonaOne, P.K. and Bjorn. Their antics on this ‘brocation’ are truly hilarious.” said Andy Chang, Senior Vice President of Advertising Sales, Marketing and Original Productions, Celestial Tiger Entertainment.

Mr. Simon Wong, Regional Director, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Southeast Asia, shared, “We are glad to work with KIX and Endemol Shine Group on the production of The Ultimate BROcation and now we are excited about the airing of the series. We believe that the bros’ unforgettable fun times in Hong Kong will inspire the audience to experience for themselves the best and most authentic shopping, eating and playing options Hong Kong has to offer.”  

“It was a different yet fantastic experience to be able to bond with ‘bros’ I barely knew.  When you put four guys together, regardless of whatever activity they are involved in, they will always try to compete with each other.  In a way, you kind of get bullied and in my case, I bullied P.K. a lot since he was the first bro I met. But in all honesty, we all hit it up pretty well; SonaOne and I clicked on music; and Bjorn is just a big ole teddy bear. And what I really loved most about this experience is the fact that it was done in Hong Kong, one of my most favorite cities in the world,” said Billy Crawford.

During the show’s press gathering, Billy will share highlights of the “ultimate” experiences he had with the bros; seeing, feeling and tasting the best Hong Kong has to  offer. From a wild night on a yacht, to wine-tasting on a tram, to fly boarding on the south side of the island, to tasting some authentic Hong Kong dishes; it was certainly a trip to remember.

So did bromance develop or did their egos get in the way? Find out what these celebrity dudes are like, when they leave their girlfriends at home and go on the “brocation” of a lifetime! So mark your calendars for the premiere of The Ultimate BROcation on December 14 at 9 PM, only on KIX!

The Ultimate BROcation is produced by the top-rated action entertainment channel KIX and Endemol Shine Group, the global production house behind such popular and award-winning shows as MasterChef and Big Brother. The show is supported by Hong Kong Tourism Board, and co-sponsored by DJI, Cathay Pacific and the Harbour Grand Hong Kong.
