After being in movies with
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Eddie Murphy I never would have imagined I would be on Camfrog. But I’m so happy I am.

So what am I doing on Camfrog?

The short version of the story is that after working for a long time in television and film I thought it might be time to use my producing skills to make something for myself.

An energetic guy named Michael introduced me to the platform. At first, I thought that Camfrog was mostly one thing: Attractive women talking to the camera.  I mean, that’s not a problem and many of the people I met since signing on to the platform have been fantastic.

A high point exploring the platform had to be stumbling on to a channel featuring a woman that goes by Highness_ .  She has her broadcast tricked out with an analog mixes, a high-end mic, and a DJ station. Now I started to get pretty excited.

Why? Because in my career in media I have always wanted to know what more could be done with any format. Michael suggested that I experiment so that’s exactly what I am doing. I decided to create a live series on Camfrog called Victor Varnado: I think I’m Having Fun.

NYC Talent Show, one of New York’s longest-running performance art open stages with comedians, musicians, dancers, and whatever else you can think of taking the stage for 6 minutes at a time every Sunday at 9 PM EST.  If you are in New York you can come down to The Creek and The Cave and see the show live or be in it.

TERRIBLE AT POOL is a talk show where I play a guest in pool. I’m terrible, but at least I’m funny.  We make bets along the way while trying to win 2 out of three games. Entertainers from all disciplines will be my guests.

Also coming up I will be attending a digital LARP event, hosting a rap battle, be taught how to meditate, hang out with an off-duty dominatrix, and whatever other nonsense I can get into. New blog posts with schedules every Monday or find them on my website.

You can also follow me on Instagram or Twitter for updates.

Q: How did you first hear about Camfrog?
A: Someone from your team sent me a message about it on Instagram.

Q: How long have you been on Camfrog?
A: Nearly 4 months.

Q: How often do you broadcast live on Camfrog?
A: Around 5 days a week.

Q: What are your favorite features about Camfrog?
A: Virtual gifts.

Q: What is your secret to a successful broadcast.?
A: I always talk to my viewers like the way I talk to my friends. I don’t treat them like just my fans. I try to remember their names and greet them when I see them join in and always acknowledge the ones who send virtual gifts. I ask them about their day, tell them about my day, and occasionally I give them love and sex advice as I used to be a sex columnist for a popular men’s magazine here in the Philippines. I’m not afraid to be myself. I say what I want to say. I don’t like to people-please just to get the viewers to like me. I’m nice when they’re being nice, and I’m mean when someone’s being mean. My fans get to know the real person behind the camera and that’s why they like talking to me.

Q: Did you have a fan base prior to Camfrog? And if so, did you let you fans know you were on Camfrog?
A: Yes I have a fan base, I’m a celebrity model/actress here in the Philippines and yes I let my fans know that I’m on Camfrog.

Q: What advice would you give to a new broadcaster?
A: Be yourself, engage with your viewers and be consistent with your broadcast schedule.

Q: Since joining Camfrog you have gotten more people to install Camfrog using your broadcast link than anyone else. What is your strategy and where do you post your link?
A: Honestly I didn’t know that many people have installed the app from my link because all I did was put my Camfrog link in my Instagram and Facebook page. I think the reason why my fans downloaded it is because I NEVER went live in either Instagram or Facebook. This is the first time my fans get to see and talk to me live on a social media platform. So I think the strategy is, do not make yourself available in every platform. Use just one and your followers will install that app because that’s the only way they could reach you.

Q: If you could broadcast from anywhere, where would it be and why?
A: I like broadcasting at home. It’s my favorite place and it’s where I’m most comfortable.
