    These days, you find a lot of bloggers and vloggers on social media and all over the internet. Many don’t really leave much of an impression and are just like everyone else but there are times when you come across rare gems, bloggers and vloggers who are a cut above the rest because of their unique videos and characters.

    One of these is ‘Bogart the Explorer’ or more formally known as ‘Bogart the Explorer from Davao City’.

    This Filipino vlogger is a cross between Steve Irwin and Dora the Explorer but he does the vlogs in a hilarious manner as he hunts ‘creatures’ in the urban jungle and reports to his viewers in an Australian accent.

    With a ‘generic’ Pinoy face, Bogart actually makes the videos more hilarious with his Australian accent; this has made him stand out from all the other Pinoy vloggers.

    But the once fat guy with a big tummy on his videos is nearly unrecognizable now that he’s gotten thinner. In fact, he’s lost so much weight (90 lbs) that he now proudly wears size XS shirts!

    The new look was actually due to Bogart trying to live a healthier life for his daughter. According to the vlogger whose real name is actually Marco Antonio Ho, becoming a dad changed his perspective. In the past he had always wanted to lose weight but never found the right motivation to do it.

    After becoming a dad, he realized that staying fit and healthy is important to ensure he’ll be around to watch his daughter grow.

    With this motivation in mind, he took up sports, particularly surfing and downhill longboarding.

    The transformation did make him totally unrecognizable from his ‘Bogart the Explorer’ character but Bogart/Marco does not mind at all. In fact, he loves living a more private life because he’s really an introvert in real life, quite the opposite of his Bogart character.

    “I have a very generic Pinoy face, and without the costume, nobody ever notices me except for a handful. So I don't get mobbed in public. I am able to enjoy a ‘private’ life. Which is good because off-character, I am very very shy and awkward. It comes from my introvertedness,” he shared to Cosmo back in 2015.

    But now that he’s lost weight, a lot of people have taken notice and could not help but admire him for losing 90 lbs.

    “Find the motivation to live, then you’ll know what you have to do. Your body is the greatest instrument you will ever own. Use it before you lose it,” he advised.

    Congratulations on the weight loss and the healthier lifestyle, Bogart!
