John Carlo "JC" Barreras Tiuseco (born April 16, 1985) is a Chinese Filipino actor, basketball player, TV host and model. He achieved fame after participating in and winning the first season of Survivor Philippines.

Tiuseco was born in Manila, son of James Tiuseco, a businessman and his wife Rosemarie Barreras a registered nurse and businesswoman. He has 2 siblings, Vivian Tiuseco (who manages the family business and own business) and Karl Anthony Tiuseco (has own business).

Early life[edit]

In 2007, he landed a spot as one of Cosmopolitan Magazine's 69 Hot Bachelors.[4]

Survivor Philippines[edit]

Tiuseco won the first season of Survivor Philippines in 2008. He defeated Robert Vincent "Rob" Sy, 7-2, with the seventh vote resulting from him winning a popularity vote. Tiuseco's win was already leaked months earlier, however, when a showbiz-oriented website published the alleged results of the Final Tribal Council on October 2008 after two of the show's staff were overheard in a coffee shop about the show's outcome. Paolo Bediones, the host of the show, labeled that website's report as a spoiler when that article first appeared.[5]

Post-Survivor Philippines[edit]

Tiuseco said that Survivor Philippines helped him a lot in his life. He learned how to be contented of what he has right now. He also gained confidence to face problems that will come in his life.[6]

Because of his good looks, many people were speculating that Tiuseco will enter the world of show business. He said that if there's an opportunity given to him, he'll probably enter show business. He is currently taking up a dance workshop and voice lessons in University of the Philippines.[6]

He is currently hosting in the GMA Network weekday morning show, Unang Hirit. He is also the endorser of Elements, the new perfume of Penshoppe as well as the clothing apparel. As an actor, Tiuseco played minor roles in GMA shows until he was given a major role of Troy (originally played by Tonton Gutierrez) in Sine Novela: Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Lahat Sa Akin, which stars Maxene Magalona, Patrick Garcia, and Glaiza de Castro.
