Here’s a situation: Say, you are organizing a show with boys in it, nekkid and all. And suddenly, the boys who show up are facially challenged though not differently weighted. Or maybe they are just homely guys with nice bods – and willing to bare after all.What do you do? Maybe cover up their faces in red beaded veils, perhaps, and go on with the show? Photos above are for illustration purposes only – taken at The bar, yes That bar at 152 Aurora Blvd. cor. G. Reyes St., San Juan City, Metro Manila [near the J. Ruiz station of LRT-2], where the boys are bold, brazen and bare. And definitely, not ugly.

Ronald Simbillo sizzles!

Lean and taut Ronald Simbillo is a 25-year-old model who has appeared in various print and tv campaigns. He was one of the few models in the first-ever Cosmopolitan Bachelors Bash held six years ago. Ronald lists rowing, sculling, and motor biking as his hobbies and interests. The 5’11”-tall model, who is from Imus, Cavite, is under Raven Modeling Agency.

First read on HMP: Johnron is lead in a new movie!

Johnron Tanada is making a comeback, for sure. He will soon be the lead actor in an upcoming movie by Roni Bertubin [of Sikil fame]. The movie, which will be shot somewhere south of the city is a light and sexy gay flick. Which means, we will soon get to see Johnron in the big screen in all his glory [I hope]. For now, I cannot divulge the details of the movie, as shooting starts next month, but Mr. Bertubin promised to give us first-hand info and photos soon. Something to look forward to, then.

In stark contrast…

.. while Per Martin Grogaard [top photos] gets to pose for amateur shots in a lonely beach in his printed jockeys, Haroun “Ron” Morales stirs up his shots in a controlled environment in his Bench undies. Both are Be Bench alum – the 6’0″-tall Martin as the second eliminee and the 5’10”-tall Haroun as first runner-up in the finals night. Haroun went on to do print ads for the underwear company while Martin [who shows a lot of promise, if you ask me] had to go back to his native Cebu.

First Read on HMP: Aga for Sun Cellular!

Aga Muhlach is done with the Globe and is now basking under the Sun! The 30-something actor, who has a new movie [with Boracay scenes] in the offing, just signed up to be the newest and biggest endorser of Sun Cellular, a mobile telecommunication service provider in direct competition with the top two networks – Smart Communications and Globe Telecom [which Aga Muhlach used to endorse]. Expect the TVCs and print ads coming out before month’s end.

Drew Arellano, Triathlete

Twenty-eight year-old Andrew James Arellano or Drew Arellano has always been known for his bring-home-to-momma wholesome appeal. In fact, the traveling host of GMA 7’s morning show Unang Hirit has very few shirtless photos in the net [the last one being a photo shoot for Metro Body, I think, with his jeans on]. Photos above, which were taken at the Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival [Sprint Distance Triathlon] held last week at Subic Bay, show the closest thing we can ever see how sexy this guy is. Without showing some skin, that is.

AJ Winkler for Bench

AJ Winkler is a 6’2″-tall model who first shot to modeling fame via his win at the 2004 MTV Fashionista Model Search [as Mr. Intercontinental-Philippines]. The 23-year-old Filipino-German model who went to Southwestern University in Cebu never fails to be featured in Bench’s major underwear ads and campaigns [together with Don Mendoza]. He is now in Singapore doing modeling jobs for his agency there.

Summer Body Too: Raph Almeda

The winner of Filinvest Festival Mall’s Summer Bodies 2008 was Raph Almeda, the 21-year-old chinito with a bod to die for. Raph is an architecture student of the University of Sto. Tomas and a part-time model for RECO Modelling agency. During his free time, he does drafting, sketching, wakeboarding, wall climbing, and working out, natch!

Men in Shorts: Paolo and Piolo

I just finished my 10K run earlier at the “On Your Mark: Draw the Line Run-for-a-Cause”, a fun run sponsored by QTV for the benefit of the Women’s Crisis Center at the East Avenue Medical Center [I did below 45 minutes!]. With all the men in running shorts out there,I couldn’t help but get distracted. Tee-hee. And then again,I just thought I will put up photos of men in shorts this morning: Paolo Paraiso [top photos] and Piolo Pascual. Both PP’s were shot in candid moments while shooting as leading men for their respective projects – Paolo for the commercial dud Ate [Sister] and Piolo for the fantasy soap Lobo.

Comer: John Maurice Flores

John Maurice Flores was the first runner-up at the Ginoong Pilipinas-Metro Manila contest held recently. John, who is 20 years old, is a student of BSBA-Management at the New Era University. The 5’10-tall freelance model will be one of the representatives of Metro Manila in this May’s Ginoong Pilipinas national pageant at Intramuros, Manila.
