Robert Marion "Robi" Eusebio Domingo (born September 27, 1989), is a VJ, actor, dancer, and host. He first gained fame as a reality show contestant by joining and ending up as the first runner up of the hit television show Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus in 2008.
Domingo is a member of ABS-CBN's group of film and television talents collectively known as Star Magic.
Robi Domingo was born on September 27, 1989 to parents who are both doctors. His father, Roberto "Boy" Domingo who acted as his guardian inside the PBB house, is a General Surgeon while his mother, Mary Ann Eusebio Domingo works as the company doctor of SSS. Domingo has a younger brother named Robert Marlo Domingo (known as Maro) who also went inside the PBB house for one day.
Domingo has been attending Ateneo de Manila University since elementary and decided to continue studying there for his pre-med studies after exiting the PBB house. On March 23, 2012, Domingo graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences. Instead of immediately going to Med school as he originally planned, he opted to take a year of absence from his studies to focus on his showbiz career. Domingo was expected to begin studying medicine sometime in June 2013, however, the latest influx of hosting projects offered to him this year convinced him to further postpone his return to school. He hasn't made any other announcements regarding his future school plans.
Domingo, together with his fellow housemate Josef Elizalde, entered the Pinoy Big Brother house as the "Plus housemates". Their entry was given the "school rivalry" angle because they both come from schools that are considered as rivals in the Philippines. During the first week, they were given the secret task of convincing their housemates that they were "Best Buds Forever" who have been estranged for a number of years only to see each other again in the show's auditions. They were not able to succeed in their task because their ruse was discovered. Domingo will go on to be part of the Teen Big Four, eventually winning the Second Teen Big Placer award at the end of the season.
Shortly after exiting the PBB house, Domingo joined the cast of the Philippine remake of My Girl with Elizalde, and another ex-housemate, Nicole Uysiuseng. A few months later, Robi joined another reality contest, this time a search to become a VJ for MYX, which he eventually won with 3 others. He was also given a regular spot in ABS-CBN's Sunday variety show, ASAP as part of the dance group, Gigger Boys. His next project was also with the group when he took the role of Arkin in Your Song Presents: Boystown. Aside from being a regular in the main show, he also started hosting the online counterpart of the show, ASAP Chill-Out, with his co-host/s changing over the years.
Late 2010, Robi and his fellow Gigger Boys were launched as the hosts of the short-lived Youth Oriented Teen Variety show called Shoutout!. The show was cancelled on February 11, 2011 after a few months on air because of low ratings. However, not long after, it was announced that Domingo is being tapped to join the elite roster of host for Pinoy Big Brother: Unlimited, together with Toni Gonzaga and Bianca Gonzales. A week after the finale of Unlimited, Domingo launched the opening of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 4 with Gonzaga, Gonzales, and newly minted host, John Prats. He also begun being a guest star in ABS-CBN's Kahit Puso'y Masugatan late in December 2012, wherein he played the part of Gerald Fernandez opposite Andi Eigenmann's Veronica Salvacion. Aside from this, he was also a semi-regular co-host in Sarah Geronimo's now defunct Sunday night variety show, Sarah G. Live.
After a few months of speculation, it has been confirmed that ABS-CBN has decided to tap Domingo as one of the co-host for its upcoming Philippine franchise of the popular reality show, The Voice of the Philippines. He will be reunited with Gonzaga for this project, and joined by Toni's younger sister, Alex Gonzaga. In addition to this, he is also scheduled to co-host the second season of the reality show The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition: Doubles with Iza Calzado and Matteo Guidicelli sometime in 2013. Lastly, his other project that was scheduled to air sometime in late 2012 was as a host for the second season of ABS-CBN's afternoon reality show, I Dare You, but the project was pushed to a late 2013 release. He will be reunited with Prats, and joined by IDY season 1 host Melisa Cantiveros and PBB Unlimted housemate, Deniesse Joaquin.
Aside from television, Domingo has also starred in a few films, one of which was Cinco (film), a five-part horror anthology - this film marked the last project that he would have with fellow Gigger Boy AJ Perez before the latter died in a vehicular accident.
Domingo is also an endorser, and among the brands that he has endorsed, is still endorsing or is affiliated with at present time are: Nokia, Bench, Coca-Cola, Jollibee, Skechers, Globe Telecom, Adidas, Wade Shoes, Gold's Gym, RayBan, The Body Shop, Your Own Time and Folded & Hung.
Since he joined the entertainment business, Domingo has been romantically linked to various local actresses that he previously worked with. Among those were: Nicole Uysiuseng (My Girl), Jessy Mendiola (Your Song Presents: Boystown), Empress (Shoutout!), and Andi Eigenmann (Kahit Puso'y Masugatan). Of the four, Mendiola admitted to Robi courting her but said nothing came out of it in the end. In addition, he has been very vocal about his crush on young actress Kim Chiu even while he was still inside the Big Brother House.
Domingo admitted to having dated two non-showbiz girlfriends, both his schoolmates from Ateneo, over the years but refused to divulge their identities to the public. However, in the middle of 2012, rumors started spreading that he is dating the popular member of the Ateneo Lady Eagles - Gretchen Ho. When confronted about the issue in various media outlets, and even teased on his own shows, Domingo remained mum and coy about it. It was only during a t.v. guesting on Kris TV in September that he first mentioned Ho's name - and even then, he refused to confirm that they were dating but maintained that she was someone special to him. In the following months, and in different t.v. guesting, Ho's name would always be mentioned but Domingo would insist that they aren't in a relationship. For her part, Ho would also deny that they are together, but admits that they are dating. In addition, the two would post personal pictures of them together, and would have sweet exchanges on twitter.
As it would turn out, during a guesting on Gandang Gabi, Vice!, Ho finally admitted that the reason why they aren't in an official relationship yet is because Domingo respects her decision to wait until her UAAP Volleyball career is over. Vice Ganda reminded her that the season was over, and there's nothing stopping them now. A month later, the two finally admits to being a couple, with Domingo being very vocal about his happiness. On his most recent guesting on The Buzz to promote The Voice of the Philippines, Domingo says this about Ho: "Whenever I think about her, whenever I talk about her - I can't wipe this smile off my face.
