He placed as the 2nd teen big placer on the show. He hosted his first show called 3ow Powhz! on Studio 23 Channel that aired in late 2010 through early 2011.[1]


In May 2010, Ryan Bang entered the Big Brother house along with 10 other Teenternational housemates. After 56 days, he was able to garner enough votes to reach the final episode wherein he won the competition as the 2nd Teen Big Winner by getting 18.70% of the entire votes.[2]

He is Showtime's longest staying judge at 48 weeks.

Aside from being the longest staying judge at Showtime, he formerly hosts 30w POwhz at Studio 23 and stars in the comedy gag show Banana Split.

On December 5, 2010, he joined Kim Atienza in hosting the show Matanglawin.[4]

Tax evasion charge

In January 2013, the Bureau of Internal Revenue filed a tax evasion complaint with the Department of Justice against Ryan Bang for failure to pay his 2010 and 2011 taxes. The Bureau of Internal Revenue stated that it was suing him for a tax liability amounting to Php 1.82 million, including surcharges and interests.[6] In February 2013, Bang stated that he would like to make a personal appearance at the BIR in order to apologize for the incident. He was eager to resolve the case soonest, and made the excuse that he was but a high school student in 2010 and at that time he was unaware of his responsibility to the Philippine government in light of his earning income from the entertainment sector.[7]
