Usually seen in the Senate chamber engaging in debates with fellow lawmakers, Pimentel visited the set of late-night comedy talk show "Gandang Gabi Vice" on Wednesday.

On the official account of his public service programs on micro-blogging site Twitter, Pimentel shared a photo of him with "GGV" host, comedian Vice Ganda.

In the same hour, Pimentel also posted an image of him posing with Reyes, and he referred to her as "a crush of mine."

Pimentel separated from his wife, former beauty queen Jewel May Lobaton, last May.

Following his "taping" with Vice Ganda, Pimentel is expected to appear in an upcoming episode of the comedian's "trending" talk show, which airs Sunday evenings.

Other political figures who have previously appeared as guests on "GGV" are Batangas Governor Vilma Santos, Sen. Edgardo Angara, Manila Vice-Mayor Isko Moreno, Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson and Sen. Jinggoy Estrada.
