Ralph Arceta, “The Well-groomed Ilonggo”
‘My momma always said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” – Forrest Gump
Do you remember that ever famous quote? Who doesn’t anyway? Just like our Ginoo candidate, Ralph Doriendo Arceta who finds meaning in this line.. well, who would know what this beauty pageant might give him. Well, whatever it is, there is always something to be learned along the way. But one thing’s for sure his mind is focused on the best chocolate in the box – the title of Ginoong Turismo Filipinas 2014. Ralph is 26 years old and hails from Iloilo City. He currently works as a Sales Officer for Danube Supermarket chain assigned in the electronics department. He previously won as Mukha ng Kalendaryong Pinoy 2013, a male personality contest held also in Jeddah where he bested 5 other candidates. Ginoong Ralph may at first seem like the silent type of person, and yes he may be, but when he starts to open his mouth and speaks his mind you will see an articulate, well-informed guy and then you find yourself enjoying a conversation with him. He enjoys watching movies, playing volleyball, and is into the Korean martial art, Taekwondo. (Ginoos, better take my advice and stay as far away from him during the finals night!) Seriously though, Ralph believes that the kind of personality he has, gives him that much of the chutzpah to venture and become the next Ginoong Turismo Filipinas winner.
