All eyes were on Raymond Gutierrez after he debuted his transformation photo last year. A far cry from the overweight physique he has had almost all his life, the dramatic weight loss blew everyone away, especially since it seemingly came out of nowhere.
Talking about his fitness journey, the TV host said that he didn’t just gain a healthy lifestyle, but also a ‘positive aura’.
“You know before, I would be snarky, I would be sarcastic. I would make snide remarks and just have the tendency to be negative. But maybe that’s because I’m unhappy with myself. And now my friends are like, ‘Mond, you have such a positive aura about you.’”
And it definitely shows! Last week, Raymond Gutierrez flew to Thailand to celebrate his 34th birthday with a bunch of his friends. The week-long celebration in his ‘new favorite place’ – The Slate Resort – was everything Raymond wished for. Aside from the tropical haven, they also popped in to see the elephants in the nearby Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Phuket.
During their stay, Raymond was never short of posting vacation photos on Instagram. His snapshots highlighted the beauty of Phuket, yet, that wasn’t what captivated his followers the most. Over the past few weeks, the celebrity took social media by storm after uploading a photo of himself taking a shower in Phang Nga Bay, Thailand.
The photo featured Raymond clad in only his swimming trunks, highlighting his super fit physique. Sure enough, it made a lot of buzz online in no time – even more so when a few female celebrities decided to join in and offer their opinions on his hot bod.
Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez, for one, couldn’t help but compliment Raymond for looking “so good.” Celebrity stylist Liz Uy had no words, leaving only wet emojis to speak on her behalf.
Broadcast journalist Karen Davila commented “Naks!!” along with fire emojis. Sarah Labati, the fiancée of Raymond’s twin Richard Gutierrez, said that it was her “fave photo” of his yet and followed it up with heart eyes emojis.
It Girl and close friend Isabelle Daza was smitten with Raymond for being “so cute,” while fashion blogger Laureen Uy declared in all caps that she loved it.
Raymond, you’re hot stuff and we can’t get enough!
