Jaime Santos (born October 8, 1951), better known as Jimmy Santos, is a Filipino actor, comedian, TV host and former professional basketball player.

Basketball career[edit]

Prior to his acting career, Santos became one of the "starting five" players of Jose Rizal College Heavy Bombers in which they had won a 1972 NCAA Championship together with Philip Cezar and David Cezar. He would later play for the U/tex Weavers in the commercial league MICAA, the PBA's forerunner. Santos also played thirteen games in the PBA's inaugural season (1975) for the 7-Up Uncolas. In the featured Old-timers game during the 1991 PBA All-Star week, Santos was named MVP for his late-game heroics and hijinks on the court, leading his White team over the Blue team.

Showbiz career[edit]

Santos started in the 1970s in the Philippine television series Iskul Bukol and in the film Little Christmas Tree, also appearing in various feature films and later became a regular host in the noon-time television variety show Eat Bulaga!.

In 2011, Santos played a supporting role alongside Vice Ganda in The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin, which gained the distinction of being the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.[1][2]

Personal life[edit]

He finished Banking and Finance at the Jose Rizal College.
