Nikki Reed & Gillette Ask Couples to “Kiss & Tell” in National Experiment - Times Square/Champion Parking
January 16, 2013 - New York

Research shows that people are kissing less than ever and that 66% of women have avoided kissing a guy because he had facial hair. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon and signs showing that the kiss may be on the decline, Gillette is asking couples across America to help determine if stubble could be the trouble. New York couples are invited to kiss in-person – with and without stubble – to uncover which kiss is best: a kiss with stubble or smooth shaven skin. Couples should arrive with stubble – first conducting an introductory interview, then kissing with stubble. Men will then shave and the couple will kiss again. A short follow-up survey will be conducted to determine which is truly more kissable. Prizes will be awarded to all who pucker up: free Gillette swag for the guys and a COVERGIRL LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm for the ladies! Anyone unable to attend in-person can conduct the experiment online at kissandtellus.com. National results will be announced on Valentine’s Day.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail loren.sandiego@philnyjaycees.org. ------------------------------------ Speakers/Panelists Below are the list of panelists/speakers and a short bio for each. Host/Moderator: Air Tabigue Air Tabigue is a Filipino-American comedian who was born and raised in Long Island, NY. Throughout his life, he has had a natural ability to make people laugh at any given moment.. Now as a comedian, he is quickly rising in the comedy world performing at clubs and colleges around NYC and throughout the country. In addition, Air Tabigue is also one of ambassadors of Team Takbo. In 2011, Air decided to be more fit and healthy, mostly by just working out at first. But after seeing pictures and posts from friends and family in the races they’ve completed, he wanted to join in on the running game. He’s always wanted to run the NYC Marathon, and to say that he did it. He has run the required races and has qualified for the 2012 ING NYC Marathon, along with the friends and family members that helped him reach that goal. Along with being an Ambassador to Team Takbo, his team and the members have been highly supportive on his runs. He says he has definitely seen improvements in his times and distances, and this motivates him even more. In addition, he also has 3 sons who are filled with energy! Running has helped him keep up with them and not tire out as he used to! Next year, his goals include adding half-marathons under his belt, leading him to his ultimate goal of completing the ING NYC Marathon. “Team Takbo is an encouraging fun group of runners and definitely know how to celebrate! Go Team Takbo!” Panelist # 1: Jay Pascual (Team Takbo Founder) Main Focus: Maximize your Health and Fitness Plan by Creating or Joining an Athletic Group Jay’s initial goal was to improve his health and lifestyle through running. With 3 years in the United States Army under his belt, he didn’t take running seriously until he started entering events in his hometown of New York City. “Running in the Military wasn’t fun, it was a job, you were forced to do it”. As he trained for his first New York City Half-Marathon, he found that running in itself was fun and motivational when you have a goal to shot for. Running helped him clear his mind, and found it peaceful and calming when you get into that nice comfortable tempo. Since then, he has completed 3 Marathons, including the 2011 ING NYC Marathon, as well as running over a dozen half-marathons to build the endurance to becoming a distance competitor. He also challenged himself to becoming a Triathlete and competed in a dozen triathlons including 2 Half-Ironman distances. His ‘athletic’ goals for the future are to run more marathon distance races, and to ultimately complete his first full Ironman. But his biggest goal as Founder and President to Team Takbo is to see his team and teammates succeed. He wants to help others stay focused on their goals,whether it’s running their first 4 miler or completing their first marathon; or taking the challenge of racing their first triathlon. He loves the dedication and motivation that his fellow teammates have in reaching their goals,and would run any race,at any distance and pace, with any single one of them; just to see them succeed and give it their all. Panelist #2: Grace Hernandez (Yoga Instructor) Main Focus: Experience Self-awareness and Focus via Yoga Grace Hernandez (RYT-200) began practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to relieve stress and begin a physical fitness routine.

Panelist #3: Pete Isip (Co-Owner of Crank Systems) Main Focus: Fat Kid No More- How to Start a Fitness Program for Overweight Individuals Pete Isip started training himself for the purpose of disposing the “fat kid” syndrome. Being an overweight child/teen was tough dealing with ridicule, mockery, and poor athletic performance. Realizing being 5 foot and 225 pounds and wrestling heavyweight was not the way to go, he started cutting weight and reached his fitness goals. Pete is now the co-owner and head trainer of KRANK Systems, partnered with Robert Morales, which focuses on group training and fat loss bootcamps.
