‘There’s always room to learn. On my dying day, I want to have learned all that I can.’

Last but definitely not the least

Body Talk with Kim Last, the That’s My Bae from UK

Until lately, Kim Michael Last wore his hair long (“My trademark,” he told Funfare in an earlier interview). He looks better (and more manly) clean-cut, doesn’t he?

Born to an English father and a Filipina mother in London on Jan. 20, 1997 (Aquarius), Kim studied Law/Government Politics/English at Chelsea Academy in London before he came to the Philippines for good three years ago to pursue a career in showbiz, starting as a model in mall shows.

“A dream come true” is how Kim described his discovery as one of the six That’s My Bae cuties of Eat, Bulaga! “I have always dreamed of being in showbiz.” He used to be a back-up dancer for Morissette Amon and KZ Tandingan, and was about to be a personal trainer in boxing when he joined the That’s My Bae search. “Until then,” said Kim (whose two siblings are married), “I was just going to the gym every day.”

A dead ringer for Leandro Muñoz (now based in the US with his wife and his daughter from a previous relationship), Kim has learned to speak good Tagalog (without his British tongue getting entangled with such malalim na mga salita like “kung tutuusin” and “nakapangingilabot”), conditioned as he has been in his regular stint on Sunday PinaSaya and, with his fellow Baes (Kenneth Medrano, Tommy Peñaflor, Jon Timmons, Joel Palencia and Miggy Tolentino), on Bulaga and Trops.

He admitted to having a “fling” with a girl he didn’t name, saying that, after all he came to pursue a career and not to nurture a love life (he has more than enough time for that).

At 5’8”, Kim weighs 132.27 lbs.; and wears S/M-size shirt and size-10 shoes.
