‘Two Besties Together’ stars millennial Asian American hosts
YouTube stars Thomas Orlina, a Filipino American, and Malia Baldovi, a Hawaiian Asian American, are hosting a new digital talk show “Two Besties Together” (TBT)
Three segments on the under-15-minute talk show (“The Topic,” “The Product” and “The Throwback”) provide their audience a chance to connect with them visually on screen and communicate with a global following on social media on diverse subject matters. The duo shares throwbacks that celebrate their ten years as “besties.”
The show also showcases a modern style of product placement endorsement deals.
Thomas Orlina is best known for self-producing and starring in his 8-episode show titled “Your Time With Thomas”, which was featured in articles online including a live television sit-down interview with CNN in the Philippines.
As his drive to become a leading show creator and brand in the entertainment business continues, Orlina takes on “Two Besties Together” or “TBT.” The acronym is also a nod to the online term “Throwback Thursday” — Thursday is the day the show airs currently on YouTube.
“I’m so grateful to be able to continue to create content that allows me to tap into the world of imagination in hopes to inspire and connect with today’s society. Being the creator, host and executive producer on this show with my bestie has been an innovative and unique experience,” Orlina says.
The show features Hawaiian native Malia Baldovi, a host and executive producer on the show. She shares her thoughts on important subject matters. Malia has television production experience, most recently with the USA Network franchise “Temptation Island.”
“This has been an amazing process, and having a show to interact with the audience and working with someone I call my bestie is amazing,” Malia says.
The first segment titled “The Topic” features the duo’s on camera acting skills in skits they put together.
The second segment called “The Product” invites the audience to become aware of new products by entrepreneurs, influencers, business owners, some of whom are sponsors for the show. In the first episode, the product featured is Modern Alkeme, a detox drink that the besties try for consumers.
A special section of the show, “Besties of The Week,” introduces the audience to some of the duo’s global followers who will be featured on a weekly basis.
To be featured are celebrity fashion designer Michael Costello; global beauty guru Patrick Starrr; Jovan Rosario, a New York-based Artist who has collaborated with the Kardashians and Jenners; and Bravo Network’s “The Real Housewives” franchise stars Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter to name a few. The third and closing segment called “The Throwback” revisits moments from the besties’ past.
“Two Besties Together” is also available on iTunes, SoundCloud and Spotify as a podcast and the duo soon will be releasing the debut single on iTunes with a music video and dance chorography.
