With his good looks, Sam Milby had his break through a Close-Up commercial in 2005. The commercial was about him chasing Barbie Almabis, a top-seling band vocalist. The two had this perfect chemistry, that made the viewers interested in Sam. Later that year, he auditioned for the real-life soap opera, PInoy Big Brother where he was successfully admitted. And that was the start of his very steady and exciting career.
