Ion’s late father Eufronio Perez was a jeepney driver, while his mother, Zenaida worked for a time as a kakanin vendor or a food peddler.
Ion rose to fame in May 2018 after he was crowned as Mister Universe Tourism, which opened a door for him in the modeling industry. After that, he made his It’s Showtime debut on September 2018 as the noontime show’s “Kuya Escort” replacing Greg Hawkins in the Miss Q & A segment.
