Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla (born Maria Erlinda Lucille Sazon Termulo on August 10, 1984) is a Filipina commercial model, endorser, television host, VJ, and actress.

Early life[edit]

Rodriguez, known by the nickname "Mariel" as a child, lived and was raised by her maternal grandparents in Parañaque due to her parents' separation at her youth.[1] She studied at De La Salle Santiago Zobel School for grade school and high school and attended De La Salle University for college, where she graduated with a B.A. in organizational communication.[2]

Rodriguez has one sister and two half-siblings. Her sister, Kaye Garcia, owns the clothing line Hot Pink Lingerie. Her half-siblings, Ethan and Julia Termulo, both live in New Jersey.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Rogriguez started her career at the age of 15, modeling for commercials and advertisements, including Clean & Clear. In 2004, she was cast in MTV Asia's television show Rouge. Introducing herself through the webcam, she flew to Singapore for the audition and got the part. Her role in the show caught the eye of MTV Philippines executives and was made a VJ in December 2004. She left MTV in April 2006.[1]

GMA Network signed her as one of their stars. While in the network, she became one of the regular hosts of Extra Challenge.[1][3] She also appeared on the series Love to Love.

In 2005, Rodriguez moved to ABS-CBN, where she joined as a co-host of the competition series Pinoy Big Brother until 2010.[4] Later, she became well-known for co-hosting the noon-time programs Wowowee (2006–10), Pilipinas Win Na Win (2010), and Happy Yipee Yehey! (2011).[5] Additionally, Rodriguez also acted in the Komiks series Varga in 2008, where she starred in the titular main role as Varga, and two installments of the Precious Hearts Romances Presents, namely Bud Brothers and Love Is Only in the Movies, in 2009 and 2010, respectively.[6][7]

In September 2011, she resigned from ABS-CBN and moved to TV5, where she continued her co-hosting stint for Willie Revillame's variety show Wil Time Bigtime from 2011 to 2013, which upon its cancellation was followed by Wowowillie, which she continued to co-host.[5][8]

Personal life[edit]

Rodriguez had previously dated Filipino actor Zanjoe Marudo after Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition, who she decided to split up with in early 2010.[9] A few months after her split with Marudo, she admitted to dating Robin Padilla, whom she met on Wowowee when Padilla was temporarily a presenter.[10] In September 2010, Padilla confirmed his marriage to Rodriguez, which occurred at the Taj Mahal in Agra, India on August 19, 2010.[11][12]

In March 2015, Rodriguez revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage, which would have been her first child with Padilla.[13] In August 2015, Padilla announced that he and Rodriguez are currently expecting twins.[14]
