To use a caliper on TV host-actress Jennylyn Mercado would be a waste of time. Not even the tiniest pinch of fat exists anywhere on the 25-year-old celeb’s ultra-slim figure. Her face is chiseled, with her cheekbones, chin and jawline as prominent as can be.

She told The Manila Times on Wednesday night that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is what keeps her lean and energized these days, after she trimmed many sizes down when she decided to take up several sports in late 2011. She had some down time from her last primetime series, Futbolilits, in October, and took up triathlon and Muay Thai, aside from Jiu-Jitsu.
