Kristoffer Lou Gonzalez Agoncillo, popularly known as Ryan Agoncillo, is a Filipino film and television actor, model, singer, photographer, and television host.
Growing up in an upper-middle-class family, he attended private schools from elementary to college. He finished elementary and high school at San Beda College Alabang. He graduated from De La Salle University-Manila with a Bachelor of Arts degree in organizational communication.
After appearing in various television commercials at a young age, one of Ryan's first hosting stint was on GMA Network's Mornings @GMA in 1998. As a freelance artist, Ryan continued on to appear as host of various television shows such as Talentandong Pinoy, Philippine Idol, ASAP, and Pinoy Fear Factor. With no exclusive contract, Ryan can jump from network to network, appearing regularly on the three Philippine media giants: ABS-CBN, GMA Network, and TV5.
Even before officially joining the Dabarkads, Ryan occassionally appeared as a guest host of the noontime show sometime in the mid-2000s. A special memory for Ryan was celebrating his birthday on Eat Bulaga! because he had no mother network to throw him a birthday celebration (since he is a freelance artist).
On 24 October 2009, Ryan Agoncillo officially joined the Eat Bulaga! family. He was 30 years old at the time of his debut on the noontime show. Since then, Ryan has hosted countless segments with his fellow Dabarkads and has undertaken various challenges during his time on the show.
Ryan has been called an Eat Bulaga! baby because he was born in the same year that Eat Bulaga! premiered.
He is currently married to actress Judy Ann Santos. Their first child, Johanna Louise (Yohan), was adopted in early 2005 by Santos and in late 2009 by Agoncillo. The couple gave birth to second child Juan Luis (Lucho) on 7 October 2010 in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. In June 2015, Santos and Agoncillo both announced that they were currently expecting a third child. A daughter named Juana Luisa (Luna) was born in 2016.
Beyond Eat Bulaga!, he also served as a host of the Talentadong Pinoy series on TV5.
