Etcetera (stylized as etcetera since 2014) is a Philippine lifestyle and magazine show produced by Solar Entertainment Corporation and broadcast by ETC since 2011. It is currently hosted by models Melania le Troyes and Mari Jasmine.


Grandidge and Jones era (2011-2013)

The show was launched on October 23, 2011 on ETC, then airing via RPN Channel 9, as a result of Solar Entertainment Corporation's launching ETC Productions. Originally airing as a 15-minute capsule-based program, it expanded to a full 30-minute program during its third season in 2013. It was hosted by model and lifestyle blogger Patti Grandidge with Kim Jones as roving reporter. On November 30, 2013, ETC switched its affiliation to SBN Channel 21 and the program was continued to air with the channel.

Grandidge gave up her hosting duties shortly after the fourth season ended and in July 27, 2014, the 5th season of the show premiered with Jones remaining as host joined by newcomer Mari Jasmine. After a successful five-season run on Etcetera, Jones left to pursue other opportunities. For the sixth season premiere which aired in 2015, Fil-Canadian model and opera singer Melania le Troyes was introduced as the new host alongside Jasmine.
