YouTube stars launched a digital talk show “Two Besties Together” (TBT) hosted by Filipino-American Thomas Orlina and Hawaii-born Malia Baldovi.

The under-15-minute talk show has three segments, “The Topic,” “The Product,” and “The Throwback.” They provide an opportunity for their audience to connect with them visually on screen and communicate with their social media following on a variety of topics.

They also showcase a modern style of product endorsements and share a throwback memory together in celebration of their 10 years as close friends or “besties.”

Thomas is best known for creating and starring in his self-produced eight-episode show titled, “Your Time With Thomas” which was featured in articles online including a live television sit-down interview with CNN in the Philippines. As his personal brand and drive to become a leading show creator in the entertainment business continues, he takes on “Two Besties Together” — also known as “TBT” – in reference to “Throwback Thursday” or the day the show airs on YouTube.

“I’m so grateful to be able to continue to create content that allows me to tap into the world of imagination in hopes to inspire and connect with today’s society. Being the creator, host and executive producer on this show with my bestie has been an innovative and unique experience,” Thomas said.

The duo discuss a diversity of subject matters in a relaxed kind of  way.

The show features Hawaiian native Malia Baldovi, a host and executive producer on the show. She can be seen sharing her thoughts and opinions on important subject matters, such as dating and bullying. Malia has experience working on set and in television production most recently for the widely known USA Network franchise, “Temptation Island.”

“This has been an amazing process and having a show to interact with the audience and working with someone I call my bestie is amazing,” she said.

The first segment titled “The Topic” explores vibrant conversations and discussions where they also showcase their acting on camera in skits they put together. The second segment called “The Product” introduces products recently launched by entrepreneurs, influencers, and some of who are sponsors for the show. In the premiere episode, the product featured is Modern Alkeme, a detox drink.

In a special section of the show labeled as “Besties Of The Week,” viewers are introduced to some of their global following who they will be featuring on a weekly basis. The show features Grammy winner Cardi B; celebrity fashion designer Michael Costello; global beauty guru Patrick Starrr; Jovan Rosario, a New York-based artist who has collaborated with the Kardashians and Jenners; and also “The Real Housewives of Orange County” stars Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter, just to name a few.

The show’s third and closing segment is called “The Throwback,” where the hosts share moments and memories from the past.

“Two Besties Together” is also available on iTunes, SoundCloud and Spotify as a podcast, and the duo will be releasing their debut single on iTunes with a music video and dance choreography soon. — Two Besties Together
