Yuletide Boy 3: Daniel Korber

Daniel Korber is a German-Filipino model based in Cebu. The 5’10”-tall cutie, who was born in Germany but raised in Cebu, has been modeling for quite some time now in the Queen City of the South. He has a degree of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the Southwestern University in Cebu, where he also bagged the Mr. College 2004 title.

AJ Winkler and Don Mendoza for Bench

Although the new Bench Body ads with the 300 theme are a wee bit photoshopped to glossy finish, don’t get tired yet about the male forms in those tight skivvies. Shown above are AJ Winkler [red briefs] and Don Mendoza, male models who are always together in print ads and fashion adverts, I’m now beginning to wonder why. Both competed at the 2004 MTV Fashionista Best Model Search, where AJ Winkler bagged the Mr. Intercontinental-Phils award [while Don Mendoza went home empty-handed]. Yet Don Mendoza was this year’s Philippine rep to Manhunt International in China. Both are under the wings of model-maker and publicist Keren Pascual.

Johnron out of Provoq?

Just how true is the buzz that ultimate Provoq guyJohnron Tanada had already asked to be released from the hunky group? I was talking to a talent manager last night and he casually mentioned that Johnron has indeed resigned from Provoq. When asked why, talent manager said that the popular provocateur was not happy with the financial aspect of his contract and the way things were going in his career. Poker-faced talent manager further declared that Johnron and the rest of the guys got paid only Php 4,000.00 each at the Cruise show last August, which fee apparently dissatisfied some of the guys in the group considering that they had to rehearse till the wee hours of the morning. Also, talent manager mentioned that shy Provoq guy John Miller has also resigned from the group [which must explain why he has been seen dancing at Lips Bar of late]. Anyhow, here’s hoping that Johnron and John will find other areas where they will grow in the vast expanse called showbiz.

Mc Auriel Gagan is ballsy

Mc Auriel Gagan is a 20-year-old Computer Engineering student from Quezon province. Like any younger guy these days, he loves playing online games. He says he is also a strong drinker, more specifically the province’s native lambanog [wine locally-produced from coconut, rice, sugar cane and sasa – a swamp palm tree]. This holiday season, the boyish-looking Mc Auriel regales us with the oh-so-yummy Christmasy photos to further brighten up the festive mood.

Yuletide Boy 2: Gelo Guevarra

This season, he is letting his balls and trimmings hang out. Twenty-year-old Gelo Guevarra is from Nueva Ecija and a part-time model. The 5’9″-tall hunk has modeled for Bobson, Bizaare, Ragnarok and Intous 10. He has also won a few contests, such as the Man of the Year title at Market Place and the Mr. Hot Bodies in Malabon.

Xavier Manahan is hot

Another boy with a Christmasy costume is Xavier Manahan, a 24-year-old bikini pageant veteran. The 5’7″-tall guy was the first runner-up at Bar Uno’s Wild Wild Wet Bikini Contest held earlier this year. He was also the grand winner of the Tropical Bodies 2007 contest held at …. waddya know, Lips Bar, where photo above was taken.

Yuletide Boy 1: Paul Guesande

Christmas is just around the corner. Our first Yule-themed guy is Paul Guesande, erstwhile star dancer of Gigolo [or was it Adonis?] along Timog Avenue in Quezon City. He is now retired, but he is best remembered by 90s gay bar patrons as the big and bulky tease who whirligigged in scrimpy bikinis much to the lusty torment of the happy audience.

Beefcake: Travis Kraft

A few months ago, ABS-CBN ran a human interest story about an Amerikano walking around the city in a Superman costume. His name is Travis Kraft and he is also the face behind the Jockey and Canadian Club Jeans billboards around the city. While in Hollywood attending auditions for movies, he moved to Manila for a while to try some modeling and acting. He booked some major deals for the top commercial brands and fashion designers. Currently, the Eastern Michigan University graduate [with a B.S. degree in Telecommunications and Film] is filming Shadowman in the U.S.

Why wasn’t Enchong at the 2007 SEA Games?

Enchong Dee was conspicuously absent at the 2007 Southeast Asian Games, as member of the Philippine Swimming Team. The cute teenager, who once made waves as a fabled member of the swim team of the country, is now busy with his showbiz and modeling commitments. And, it seems Enchong has put more favor for the tv and commercial shows of ABS-CBN rather than training arduously eight hours a day for the swimming competitions.

Ivan Maxwell in Erotika

Ivan Maxwell is also part of the cast of Erotika M2M 2 [The Art of Striptease and Sensual Dancing]. The 5’10”-tall and 21-year-old Ivan does a sinful striptease in the video produced by Videoflick Productions, the same outfit which produced the controversial Masahe M2M vid. Erotika, according to the press release, uses the art of sensual dancing to convey the message that there is so much more to it than “simply shaking one’s hips in time to a raunchy, gyrating club anthem.” The video costs Php 199 in all major stores nationwide.
