MANILA - Host-actress Kris Aquino said she was able to invite Fil-Am model John Spainhour to her TV show with the help of friends and Instagram.

On Thursday's episode of "Kris TV," Aquino admitted to Spainhour that she "stalked" him on the photo-sharing website.

Spainhour joined Aquino and guest co-hosts Shaina Magdayao and K Brosas in their trip to Sandbox adventure park in Pampanga.

"I stalked you. I looked at all your pictures and oh my God," she told Spainhour, who is from North Carolina.


Spainhour was unintentionally included in a group photo that Aquino recently uploaded on her Instagram page. This triggered the TV host's followers to ask her about the Fil-Am model, whom they found "gorgeous."

"We saw you there (in the photo) and people kept asking me who's he. So I said we're going to find out who he is. So I called up the Bench people to ask who you were. You were there standing behind us and everyone said, 'who is that gorgeous person behind you?' They saw you. So I said, we better find him. So now, you are here," Aquino said as she showed Spainhour the Instagram post that she was referring to.

Before going to the Philippines in 2011, Spainhour signed up for the military and was stationed in Iraq for five years. He was a scout sniper under the US Marine Corp.

In 2012, he won a local fitness competition.
