Fresh-faced Sylvester “Ram” Sagad
is having a grand time in modeling. He’s been practically in all fashion shows and commercials in the metro, after bursting into the limelight via a surprise win at the Century Tuna Superbods Model Search last summer. He is finishing a course in Hotel and Restaurant Management at the San Sebastian College-Manila, where he also played varsity hoops. Although showbiz beckons, he says he might just stick to modeling for now.
Bench finally comes up with the poster of its Be Bench Model Search grand winner, barely legal Carlo Guevara.
The 18-year-old upstart beat heavy favorites John James Uy and Haroun “Ron” Morales
for the top modeling prize. He now appears in ABS-CBN shows as part of his booty in the contest. While Carlo is the reluctant boy in briefs, eliminees John and Ron have started taking the sexy route by going shirtless in Bench ads and in TV. Carlo has now been cast in a teen show in ABS-CBN.
Carlo Ian Adorador
is one of the more popular male models in town. He is the original pout in the glitzy world of modeling. The 6’0″-tall mod has practically done every commercial and tv campaign, aside from blitzing through the runways for major fashion designers and brands. And by the way, his secret to firmer buns [see photo
] is this program: dumbbell lunges, dumbbell dead lift, barbell squats, advance dumbbell lunge, and unilateral barbell squat/ split squat.
The amazing gravity-defying bikini
is back and Victor Valerio aka Zaldy Valerio
is still ragged out in it. This time it’s in action, partly to demonstrate that it is invulnerable and safe to wear. The amazing bikini gives new meaning to light-and-breezy apparel, as it gives a snug fit in the crotch area. Actually the design is called the Teardrop Thong, popular in men’s wacky-sexy underthings in the web. It has o-rings in front and back to prevent the teardrop from falling.
Beleaguered actor Dennis Trillo
does some spin doctoring to his image, as he poses sexily in Metro Magazine’s 2007 Metro Body
. Subject of a much-publicized catfight between two girls, Dennis was criticized for keeping mum all throughout the fuss. When he spoke about the matter, it was too late, as the girls kissed and made up and ganged up on the poor guy.
I’m bringing sexy back/ Them other boys don’t know how to act / I think you’re special whats behind your back/ So turn around and I’ll pick up the slack/ Take em’ to the bridge. That’s how the Timbahlake song goes and twenty-two year old Mark Onir Rino
shows us how. One of the more popular male models, Mark Onir is from Colegio de San Juan de Letran and a former varsity basketball player.
New actor Kiro Baldemor
is set to appear -in full naked glory – in the movie Paupahan
[with English title: For Hire
produced by ATD Entertainment Productions. ATD stands for Allen T. Dizon
[the lead and producer of the movie]. This will be the first movie for the Pampanga province native, which movie also stars big-name actors Gloria Romero, German Moreno, Snooky Serna, and Jay Manalo
interweaves three main stories: The first is an elderly woman [Gloria Romero] who fights over the dead body of a philandering husband, with another woman. She finds solace in a gay friend [German Moreno], who is also dealing with his own problems in the person of his ward [Kirby de Jesus of Starstruck]. The second story is about a hired assassin [Jay Manalo] on a job to kill a politician. Later on, it will be revealed that the assassin had to work to maintain a mentally-deranged wife and an eight-year-old daughter. The third story is a small-time bit player [Wendy Valdez] who shacks up with the driver of a caterer close to the movie director, just so she will be given movie projects. Her mother [Snooky Serna] is sick with cancer while her former lover [Allen Dizon] is a stuntman who pimps kids. The movie – with Joven Tan as director – seems interesting enough, worth watching out for.
The boy’s name “Hobart” is an American variant of the German “Hubert,” which means “bright” or “shining.” Twenty-year old Michael Hobart Cervantes is an aspiring model with the nice abs and chest, who is destined to shine in due time. Hobart, who stands 5’8″, is from Bacolor, Pampanga and a graduate at the AMA Computer Learning Center in Guagua in the same province. He was a finalist at the Campus Model Search 2007 held last September in Metrobar, West Avenue, Quezon City.
The number 13 proved to be luckier than 7 this time as James Mark Banzon
, who represented the Megamall branch of Slimmers World, copped the Slimmers World Great Bodies 2007 title last weekend. Meanwhile, the fancied Number 7, actor John Andrew Schimmer
of SWI Trafalgar Makati branch landed first runner -up. Alfredo “Jun” Danganan
of SWI Pasay Road settled for the second runner-up.
The opening number of Private Parts Wearables: All Out Fashion Show 2 held the the Metrobar along West Ave., Quezon City, went something like the photo above. The guys posed and walked naked, like the famous Oblation Run at the State University, except that the guys here merely strode and strolled on stage prior to modeling the bikinis. The tall guy in the center is dauntless Jeffrey Surio
