Netflix is here with another interesting show as three hosts strap on and explore the world to find the perfect vacation rentals.

‘The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals’ follows three guides, Megan Batoon, Luis D. Ortiz, and Jo Franco, as they take viewers to Indonesia, Japan, Finland, the Bahamas, and the United States, testing the rentals themselves. 

Today, we are getting to know one of the hosts of the travel show, Megan Batoon.

Megan is a proud biracial Asian as half Filipino, part Irish, and part Polish. She presses that the Filipino community is very supportive of their people:

“One time I filmed a cooking video on how to make Lumpia and it was covered on some Filipino news outlets and I had my Facebook and Twitter feeds blowing up with proud Filipino viewers congratulating me. That shows exactly how much we all support each other even if we’ll never meet the people we’re cheering on.” - Megan Batoon on High School LA Times

When it comes to siblings, Megan has two sisters: Armani Batoon and Nicole Batoon.

Social Media, Podcast

Megan has maintained a considerable presence on social media, considering that she is a vlogger and podcast host. 

She created her YouTube channel, ‘MeganBatoon’ on December 14, 2010. Her first videos started out with her dancing to choreographies of several songs.

It has been more than ten years now and Megan has been maintaining her YouTube channel with vlogs. She has 1.14 million subscribers with over 88 million views in total as of this writing. 

She has been sharing her life and lessons with people online for quite some time now. 

“People on the internet have called me the older sister they’ve never had, or their best friend on FaceTime. I want relatability and connection to be in every piece of content that I put out. I’ve finally gotten to a point where I’m proud of everything I post, which is amazing as a creator.” - Megan Batoon on Distractify

Since she is not afraid to talk about her own experiences, Megan has also been sharing her advice and some insecurities through her podcast, ‘Just a Tip.’

In the show, all three hosts travel around the world to make sure the rentals they suggest to people are within every budget possible. They check the rentals out themselves with a two-night stay.

Megan is in charge of more affordable places while Luis checks out more of the luxury properties and Jo is handling some of the unique places.

Since people will most probably lean toward rental properties than busy hotels, the hosts took it upon themselves to provide options that will let people immediately rent after watching the show.

“Whether you’re looking for a vacation that is in the trees, that is super secluded, or that’s within the same city of state as you, we’ve figured out three different ways of seeing whatever you want,” Megan explains to Distractify. “We’re the guides who have done the pre-work for you to sit back and just pick which vacation you want to have...All of these places are rentable.”
