Donald is not only known as Baron Geisler’s brother but as a top-notch athlete as well. His father exposed him and his brother to sports at an early age. When he was only 7 years old, his dad introduced him to taekwondo and instantly fell in love with the sport. By the time Donald or Donnie was in high school he has immersed himself to doing sports which ate up all his spare time. His college years in UST were very memorable for aside from getting into the taekwondo varsity team, he also got the chance to represent the country at the Asian Games. Donald had to put school on hold and concentrated on his sport and in the end he gained a silver medal and 1.2M pesos from the government.

After several competitions, Donnie has to contend with several injuries. In fact, his last taekwondo competition took place last May in the taekwondo world championship and he even made it to the quarterfinal. He admits to feeling tired and going into retirement.

Donnie also wants to spend more time with his family and son. He is also trying to work hard on his relationship with his son’s mother, Trish. At this point in his life, Donnie wants to do something else aside from taekwondo which has been his focus for almost 20 years of his life.

Perhaps PBB is the change he is looking for in his life. But with the two-in-one challenge Big Brother has placed upon him and his brother, will Donald be able to control Baron and survive life in the Big Brother house?

Let's talk about Donnie here!
