Hunk of the World of Makati

The Brazilian-Japanese hottie rose to fame after appearing in Cosmo’s September 2009 Men supplement issue. Daniel’s father is pure Japanese but was born and raised in Brazil, his mother is Brazilian.

Before this hunk decided to live in the Philippines, he lived in 25 countries. Longest countries he lived in are Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea and Singapore. He and his sister left Brazil when they were 18 and 16 respectively, to pursue a career in modelling.

To quote parts of his tweet prior to entering the famous blue and yellow house “God has the perfect timing for what we do… one day I was told to come to the Philippines for a reason .” “I don’t what is going to happen in the next few days, but I leave everything in God’s hands.” Whether it is related to becoming an official housemate is a mystery.
