Gomez planned to run for the congressional seat of the 4th district of Leyte, however he was disqualified and was replaced by his wife Lucy; while Dingdong Dantes replaced him as Family Feud host.

Gomez briefly returned to GMA 7 in the weekly drama anthology, Claudine with Claudine Barreto.

After 17 years since his last appearance on his former sitcom, Tondominium, Gomez returned to the Kapatid Network TV5 (formerly ABC 5) by hosting a new weekend variety show, P.O.5..

Gomez continued his appearance on the Kapatid Network with a drama show, My Driver Sweet Lover, with co-stars Danita Paner and fellow former Kapuso star JC de Vera and with veteran actors Elvis Presley of the Philippines Eddie Gutierrez and Asia's Queen of Songs Pilita Corrales.

Political career

Gomez started his political career as a nominee of Mamamayan Ayaw sa Droga (MAD) Partylist in the Congressional election of 2001. Their party won but eventually disqualified due to failure to present proof of sectoral representation. He initially planned to run as governor of Bulacan province but since he still lacks the residency requirements of Malolos being a former resident of Horseshoe, Quezon City, he decided to run instead as a Senator in the 2007 elections. Running independent without a political party endorsing, he lost in that election.

In 2010, he ran as a congressman but was disqualified by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) because of his failure to sufficiently establish residency in Ormoc City. His wife, Lucy Torres-Gomez, took his place and won. He served as his wife's chief of staff during her term as congresswoman.

In 2013, he ran for mayor of Ormoc City in the May 2013 local elections but lost. In 2016, he ran again for mayor of Ormoc City in the May 2016 local elections and won.
