Manuel Chua (born October 29, 1980) is a Filipino male model and actor.

He was discovered in the Filipino version of the reality game show Pinoy Fear Factor which was aired on ABS-CBN, from November 2008 to February 2009. Hailing from the far-flung land of Nueva Ecija, Chua traveled for 36 hours in an airplane to Argentina where he came face to face with snakes, was dunked into icy cold water, ate all sorts of unnamable foodstuff and became a celebrity. He was just this guy based in Nueva Ecija with a small appliance retail store and a four year-old daughter, when he was in Argentina with the rest of the contestant, all they had to focus on were the stunts, and their growing competitiveness as more people were sent home. Eventually Manuel was one of the few left, and from the fan posting at the Pinoy Fear Factor Website "SuperManuel" is the favorite to win. Though he did not win as the "El Ultimo Participante" title, he has won the hearts of the many Filipinos who watched the show. And from being the apple of the eye of his large fans, he was given acting break by the Network.

Chua currently is a member of ABS CBN's elite circle of homegrown talents, Star Magic.
