Ricardo Balarosa Jr., or more popularly known as the comedian Wacky Kiray is considered as one of the most hardworking comedians in the country.
The 41-year-old comedian and host rose to fame after he won ABS-CBN’s entertainment competition show “I Can Do That” in 2017, and was declared as “The Greatest Entertainer.”
Currently, he is one of “Sing-vestigators” of the talent program “I Can See Your Voice.”
In a recent episode of the morning talk show “Magandang Buhay,” Wacky Kiray gave a tour of his newly built 4-storey house in Quezon City to the momshie-hosts of the said program.
The construction of the house took 8 months to finish, each floor has a veranda or terraces and a rooftop where he can spend time and bond with his family and friends.
Wacky Kiray welcomed momshie Karla, Melai, and Jolina inside his new home and shared a glimpse of some of the spaces, including his walk-in closet. The hosts were really amazed after seeing his shoe collection and his very organized wardrobe.
He also introduced to the ‘Magandang Buhay’ hosts his niece Joy, who lives with him in this new house.
During the interview, he shared that he was inspired to give his best because he really wanted to have his own house and also for his family.
“Naiinggit ako sa mga kababata ko, mga kalaro ko kasi ang gaganda ng mga bahay nila. Naging motivation ko sabi ko sa sarili ko, ‘Soon magkakaroon ako ng ganyan. Pero iniisip ko, kailan? Paano ko ba sisimulan?’ Siguro gagalingan ko na lang sa mga ginagawa ko sa buhay,” Wacky Kiray shared.
Luckily, he was able to start building his dream home after winning 1 million pesos from the show “I Can Do That,” his countless comedy gigs, TV shows, and also with the help of his earnings from “I Can See Your Voice”.
“Nung paglipat ko dito, tapos nung nagda-drive ako bigla akong napaiyak. Sabi ko, sobrang mahal pala ako ni God. Hindi ako pinabayaan. Sobrang blessed ko,” he added.
