Extreme makeover politiko-style: Is Hayden Kho running for congressman in 2019?


After trying out showbiz and business (remember the Hayden Paris perfumes?), is Hayden Kho about to make his foray into politics?

The rumor mill is abuzz with reports that Kho will challenge Lord Allan Jay Velasco for the congressional seat in Marinduque in 2019.

The 38-year-old husband of celebrity doctor Vicky Belo has reportedly been asked to run for Congress by former Marinduque congresswoman Regina Ongsiako Reyes, who was unseated for being a naturalized American citizen during the 2013 elections.

Kho hasn’t confirmed the rumors and there’s no word yet under which party he will run for congressman, in case the reports are true.

But should he decide to run, there’s no doubt he would draw crowds on the campaign trail due to his celebrity status. Maybe he could prod Scarlet Snow to perform a special number at a sortie? That would surely make voters go “awwww.”
