Filipe is energetic and spontaneous, and has been told that he should be a comedian by many, even strangers. He has never wanted to pursue comedy because 99.9% of his jokes are fat jokes and fat is not something he wants to be. Filipe did not start gaining weight until high school and used his asthma as an excuse to not work out and be healthy. He comes from a family of nine; one of his siblings died accidentally at a very young age and Filipe has blamed himself for years because it was his responsibility to watch him. Since then, he has had a great love for family and been very protective of each and every one of them. By losing weight this will show his family that he leads by action, not just by words.
