15 Minutes with Josh Bowman of Revenge
On Palawan, mangoes, spending habits with Emily...and jogging pants.
(SPOT.ph) Josh Bowman, who plays Daniel Grayson in the TV series Revenge, hosted a party at 71 Gramercy on Saturday, April 26, as one of the celebrity endorsers for #PenshoppeHollywood. Before making the rounds among the party-goers, though, he took some time to answer a few questions. Here's what he had to say.
On his first time in the Philippines
Last time we came out here, we went to Palawan-which is beautiful, by the way-has anyone been to Palawan here? Wow. It's unbelievable.

On what he loves about Filipinos
The hospitality. They're always so welcoming and happy. You guys are very happy. [Oh, and] I learned a phrase today! "Ang sarap ng mangga!" The mangoes are amazing I've had like five mangoes today. I'm gonna try to smuggle a bit of it back!
On his Penshoppe billboard
We saw it today; we stopped on the highway.
On his appearances at Penshoppe Glorietta and SM Aura
[It was] amazing, I mean, I love the brand, obviously and the Penshoppe family is amazing as you can tell by the great party. It's been really, really lovely.
Answering questions candidly...
And then making a toast
On what he buys from Penshoppe
I love the jogging pants. I like the rucksacks, funny enough. I travel a lot so I like having a rucksack.
On what he loves about Penshoppe
I think it's just the feel, you know? The design. It's affordable. I like that it's affordable. I mean, me and Emily [Van Camp, his girlfriend and Revenge co-star], we don't go out and spend thousands of dollars... I still don't spend [on things I didn't buy when I couldn't afford it], so I think affordable is tops.

On shooting his new campaign for the brand in Malibu
Malibu is beautiful...but it's not as beautiful as Palawan!
His top three summer essentials: t-shirt, shorts, sunglasses
On other places in the Philippines that he'd like to visit
Well, since I'm such a mango lover, I think Cebu would be the best place to visit. In fact there's an island [where the mangoes are] near Cebu that's even better than Cebu [when it comes to mangoes]...(he asks the audience, who respond with "Guimaras!") Yes! I want to go there!
