The Premium Indulgences of Sam Milby
He's one of tinsel town's fastest rising young stars today. And there's just no stopping him. Less than a year after his stint in the reality show that catapulted him to stardom, Sam Milby has come to be one of the biggest and busiest heartthrobs in the Philippine entertainment scene today. With a couple of regular TV shows every week, countless appearances in shows here in even abroad, and a telerserye in the works, Sam definitely has his calendar full. But he's not complaining.
Even during his free time, the singer-actor takes up workshops in voice, guitar or acting to further hone his talents. But that isn't to say that he doesn't find time to kick back, relax and reward himself. Sam takes the time out to indulge himself with good things such as Jollibee's Yumburger Premium Amazing Aloha and Cheezy Bacon Extreme. They are unique and langhap-sarap burgers with a variety of fresh, delectable and generous toppings. The Amazing Aloha has a sweet and refreshing pineapple twist. It is a combination of langhap-sarap, juicy patties made from 100% pure beef topped with cheese, fresh lettuce, a succulent pineapple ring and crispy bacon strips. On the other hand, Cheezy Bacon Extreme is oozing with creamy cheese and loaded with mushroom, lettuce, tomato, and crispy bacon strips. No wonder Sam can't get enough of both burgers.
"I'm actually torn between the Amazing Aloha and Cheezy Bacon Extreme burgers. The pineapple in the Amazing Aloha adds such a tangy twist, it really complements the burger. But I love, cheese and mushrooms too so I also love Cheezy Bacon Extreme. They're both absolutely superb," Sam confessed.
That says a lot about the Jollibee Yumburger Premium, especially since it comes from someone who's a burger connoisseur of sorts. Back in the US, his first job had him surrounded by burgers of all varieties for long hours. He also admits to having been such a burger fan since high school.
Another interesting bit of trivia is that this isn't the first time for Sam to do a television commercial for Jollibee. He was a talent in a Jollibee TVC almost a year ago before he became a housemate. Now, he's not just a talent but a Jollibee endorser who's joining the elite ranks of Aga Muhlach, Donna Cruz, Sarah Geronimo and Mark Bautista.
"It's an extreme honor and privilege to be part of the Jollibee family and be in the company of big names like Aga Muhlach. I'm really thankful for this one-of-a-kind chance to represent the number one fast food in the Philippines," he said.
Jollibee, for their part, is equally thrilled about Sam's new role as the latest Jollibee endorser.
"Sam is obviously one of the most talented and hardest working young stars today. He is very passionate about his work and has an immense drive to succeed. Sam best embodies today's breed of young working adults who deserve life's best rewards like Yumburger Premium," said Jollibee VP for Marketing Inez Reyes.
And this new-formed partnership with the largest fast food brand in the country is just a preview of bigger things to come. As Sam continues to make a name for himself as a serious actor, a musician and a certified star, there will be more and more reasons to celebrate simple victories and indulge in the many good things life has to offer like Jollibee Yumburger Premium.
-I'm tired of Jollibee. Their food is awful. Also, I've found a brand new Asian food chain invading the US. I'm still trying to wrap my head around their byzantine corporate structure and powerpoint presentations, but more soon.
