John Ross Sanchez Gamboa, popularly known as Joross (born November 28, 1984), is a famous Filipino actor and a member of ABS-CBN's circle of homegrown talents called Star Magic.
Joross Gamboa was born in Daet, Camarines Norte, Philippines. He has two siblings and the eldest of Renato Gamboa and Monette Sanchez. Whilst studying high school at St. James Academy, he was a member of the basketball varsity team. He pursued a computer science degree in De La Salle University-College of Saint Benilde but later transferred to Global City Innovative School of Nursing. He temporarily stopped studying after entering Philippines show-business.
Joross Gamboa gained his popularity when he first appeared in the first season of ABS-CBN's Star Circle Quest. Throughout the competition, he always stood out due to his comedic antics and laid back pretty boy attitude. He was hailed by Lauren Dyogi, one of the judges, as the next leading man.
He was paired up with fellow Star Circle Teen Questor Roxanne Guinoo and their pair was dubbed "JoRox" (a combination of their names). Joross Gamboa successfully entered the final 5 or "Fab 5" of SCQ.
Soon after SCQ, different offers started coming. His first project, together with the nine other finalists of SCQ, was SCQ Reload, wherein he played Joross Pimentel, a hopeless romantic guy who fell in love with Roxanne Roxas in the series.
After SCQ Reload, he was casted in movies like Can This Be Love and 'D Anothers. He also gained a large fanbase during his stint as co-host of the ABS-CBN noontime show "MTB: Ang Saya Saya" where he held his own against veteran hosts Edu Manzano, Ai-Ai delas Alas and Arnel Ignacio. He also starred in the drama series Gulong ng Palad opposite Roxanne Guinoo, who is also his co-host in the reality lifestyle show At Home Ka Dito.
For almost three years of working together, Joross Gamboa and Roxanne Guinoo got very close together which ended up in a romantic relationship. Unfortunately, their relationship ended after more than a year of being together. Both claimed that despite of what had happened, they are happy to remain friends and also happy to work together in the same projects like in Sineserye Presents: Natutulog ba ang Diyos?
In 2007, Joross met Karysheila Mae, a commercial model in Malaysia, around his subdivision. She later became his girlfriend, but it has been said that they have broken up during a trip Joross took to Malaysia with good friends Angelica Panganiban and Derek Ramsay. He also went back to school and is taking up a Degree in Mass Communications.
