But what many Filipinos did not know is that Catriona has actually been in many commercials in the past! At the time these commercials were made, she was not yet well-known and definitely not yet Miss Universe. Thus, her parts in the commercials were either just too small to be fully noticed or the part was for a lead role but people just didn’t recognize her!

For instance, in a commercial for Century Tuna, she was actually with Angel Locsin and Derek Ramsay but the role was a minor one, with Catriona appearing for just a couple of seconds.

In ad for Myra, though the beauty item is actually for ladies, only flashes of her skin and glimpses of her face were shown on the video – the ad was mostly focused on Xian Lim’s face and Catriona’s skin.

She had a lead role in the ad for Tortillos but many didn’t know who she was at the time. The same goes for many of her other ads, including the ones for Smart Communications, Nescafe, Pantene, Palmolive, and Status Magazine.
