Few public figures in our country generate as much controversy as the presenter Frank Cuesta. The ethologist living in Thailand achieved fame and recognition when channel Cuatro gave him a program, Frank de la jungla, with which he traveled through different territories in search of the most incredible animals.
After his first show, he worked for the Mediaset network on La selva en casa and Natural Frank, formats very similar to the original. Lastly, before dedicating himself to YouTube and other streaming platforms, Cuesta made Wild Frank for Discovery Max for years.
In addition to his television appearances and his work as a streamer, the man from Leon has a sanctuary where he helps animals recover to later return them to their habitats. The presenter also has a great impact on social networks, since on Instagram alone he accumulates more than 917,000 followers and on Twitter he has more than 759,000 followers.
Everyone knows that Cuesta does not keep quiet, which is why many know him for his controversies. After saying publicly that he is more akin to conservative parties, a few months ago he was at the center of the media hurricane after charging in a video against sexual diversity: "But it is that you can no longer in a fucking movie where an aunt say: 'I like a guy'. Well no: 'I like an uncle, an aunt and that tree. I'm going to fuck the tree. And I refuse because it is unnatural''.
Now he is back in the media spotlight because he returns to television in a project together with the co-founder of VOX, Cristina Seguí. On May 31, politics will accompany Cuesta to El Hormiguero to present Carretera Salvaje, a program that will follow the line of the previous ones, but that will bring many new features that will surprise the viewer.
Hundreds of users on the network have criticized that Cuesta has extreme right-wing politics for his program and have 'cancelled' the project before seeing it, something that has made the presenter very angry: "They have carried out such a campaign of harassment that even my children have suffered from it. Now I'm doing a new animal program and they're already canceling it without having started. My question is: who protects me, my family and my work from this mob? Do I have to become black, LGTBIJKLM or u squat a house to make them stop? What a fucking disgusting mob."
"Whoever wants and is interested can buy it, and if I don't put it on the Internet, I don't care," Cuesta said when he spoke for the first time about his new program. The presenter shared with his followers that it is an innovative space and that everything is "funny and disgusting."
Whether on national or regional television or through his YouTube or Twitch channels, Cuesta can't wait any longer to show what he has prepared with Seguí in recent months: "It's going to be a strange format, with very strange things , but above all animals and very common things that we are not used to looking at, that we have in front of us and we don't see them".
