“Ipinanganak ako sa Baguio City, sa La Trinidad. Nag-start ako mag-suot n’yan kapag may okasyon, may kasal, may birthday, basta ’pag may celebration. Mga 13 years na ako nagsusuot ng Igorot traditional costume,” Renz said.

He is overwhelmed by the attention he gets from photographers, tourists and spectators every time he wears the Igorot costume in the yearly flower festival In Baguio City called Panagbenga. (’Wag mo silang pansinin, ako lang!)

“May advocacy kaya wala kaming talent fee para rumampa. Nagugulat lang kami na may nag-po-post ng photos namin,” Renz said. “’Wag nating kakalimutan ’yung dati nating culture.” (’Di kita makakalimutan, bro!)

Renz, who recently appeared as guest on WTFu on YouTube, admits one of the reasons he takes care of his physique is he wants to look good in Igorot costume. (Paano po ba isuot ’yan, bro?)

“Fitness model din ako at sumasali-sali sa mga pageants kaya talagang kailangan din naman talaga alagaan ang katawan,” he added. (Kailangan kita, bro!)

The Mr. Cordillera Tourism 2016 title holder hopes to continue his advocacy in preserving Baguio culture and heritage. He also dreams of making it in showbiz, saying, “Kung may opportunity, why not? Let’s do it! Gusto ko sana action, ’yung may barilan, bugbugan.” (’yan mga gusto ko ma-aksyon!)

Asked if he is open to take on sexy roles, he said, “Hindi ko pa alam kung kaya ko. Tingnan natin, depende sa istorya. Movie naman s’ya at basta ’di naman gagawa ng masama at may lesson ang istorya.” (’Di tayo gagawa ng masama, lahat ng gagawin natin may lesson, bro!)
