Megan, Gazini, and Marc Show Us Why ‘My Hometown Is G.O.A.T.’

The stars give us the guided tour!

Before your favorite Filipino celebrities were celebrities, they were just like you and me—ordinary folks dreaming big dreams in their humble hometowns.

This new series will show you how far they’ve come—literally and figuratively. Premiering on November 4 at 8:30 pm and every Thursday and Friday thereafter on AXN Asia, My Hometown Is G.O.A.T. (The Greatest Of All Time) has beauty queens (Miss World 2013 Megan Young and 2019 Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados) and basketball players (Marc Pingris with fellow cagers JC Intal, Jayjay Helterbrand, and Rico Maierhofer) giving us the guided tours to the places where they grew up. Developed in collaboration with the Philippines’s Department of Tourism, My Hometown Is G.O.A.T. will also educate audiences on the smart and safe ways to travel during a pandemic.
