Venezuelan actor Alejandro Chaban is one of the showbiz celebs who have joined YouTube’s new Hispanic-oriented NuevOn channel with the motivational talk show “Yes, You Can with Chaban”, his agents said Monday.
Under the proposition that losing weight and learning about health is fun, Chaban will use his experience in battling his own obesity problems to help a young audience change their lives.
In each episode the bilingual actor will entertain as he educates his audience in ways to lead a healthy life.
“This is my great dream, the mission of my life - bringing youthful viewers a message about health in my own way, by making my weekly show ‘Yes, You Can with Chaban!’ available to help them on YouTube 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Chaban said in a communique.
The actor has taken part in such English-language productions as the television series “Monk” and the feature film “The Notorious Bettie Page” as well as telenovelas for the Hispanic market like “Prisionera”, “Decisiones”, “El rostro de Analia” (The Face of Analia) and “Eva Luna.”
Also new to NuevOn is Chilean host Felipe Viel with “Feim Fix,” a weekly program of gossip about the rich and famous delivered with a seasoning of humor, and the son of Sofia Vergara, Manolo Gonzalez, with “Mi Vida con Toty” (My Life with Toty), about life with his famous mother.
