The 36-year-old Kapamilya actress made it to stardom in 1990’s as a teen idol. She first signed up as a talent on Star Magic and made a debut on Ang TV, a youth oriented comedy program on the network. Magdangal was called the Pinoy Barbie of the 1990s because of her eccentric fashion taste; even releasing her own brand of dolls.

After 10 years of being a Kapamilya star, she moved to GMA Network where she worked for 12 years. She made a comeback at ABS-CBN last year and now stars at an afternoon TV drama series “Flordeliza.” She is also back with love team Marvin Agustin who also stars in the afternoon drama.

Magdangal will return on the Singing Bee on Monday to defend her title. If she makes it until the finale episode of the karaoke show “The Singing Bee” on February 6, she will compete against former jackpot winners Sheryl Cruz, Body Cruz and Frenchy Dy.
