This is not a public service site where you can mandate what you deserve or do not deserve. At most, you can only post nasty and bitter comments that reflect your pre-lucid interval states. Which means, as this blog does not have any sense, you have to take every post not too seriously. Having said that, the good news is – Johnron [image above, sans make-up, sans jockeys!] will also haul in his co-Provoq members for the upcoming photo shoot with me.

The Brothers Harman

Brothers Mark [standing] and Sean Harman are trying their luck in Philippine showbiz. Born to a Filipino mother and New Zealander father, Mark [20 years old] and Sean [18 years old] both stand 6′-tall. Sean is a waiter back in Brisbane while Mark is a chef. If I’m not mistaken, Sean’s using the name “Sean Oh” for GMA 7’s afternoon series, Daisy Siete: Prince Charming and the Seven Maids. The boys have signed up for GMA 7 projects.

Vic Martinez sans make up!

Too, no waterproof make-up! No healing brushes! Here’s twenty-four year-old Vic Martinez, representing Dipolog City in this year’s edition of Ginoong Pilipinas. The 6′-tall hunk was a runner-up in the regional preliminaries but the organizers of the local pageant deemed it best to send him instead to the national finals. It looks like they may be right in their choice after all, as he is touted as one of the top bets in the nationals this year, along with Ryan “JC” Dungo of Mandaluyong City.


No waterproof make-up! No healing brushes! Just plain old and wet Johnron. How’s that? I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’ve lately been noticing some comments here veering towards the foundation, mascara and lipstick color rather than the previous notes on projection and protrusions. Or maybe then I’m just now catering to a small demographic of makeup experts and artists. Which may be nice because soon I will post just close-up photos of the guys. Next: Vic Martinez!

Johnron Exclusive!

Johnron Tanada revealed that, despite his being with Viva Films for quite some time now, he just recently signed an exclusive contract with the artist management arm of the company. Which means, we can expect more Johnron appearances in Viva projects soon. In fact, he made a brief appearance in the Robin Padilla-Aiai delas Alas movie produced by Viva. And as for the Viva Digital movie he will be doing under the Jay Altarejos-Lex Bonife team [Parola, Antonio], the shoot starts today all the way up to Vigan City. Entitled Kambyo, this is a gay road trip movie, which will [again] show off Johnron’s jewels. Lex promised exclusive stills for the site, so there’s something to watch out for,guys. And, as for this photo shoot [images above], I will be posting Johnron photos soon sans the jeans.

Vic Martinez is Ginoo crowd favorite

At the Ginoong Pilipinas preliminaries yesterday – when the swimwear, formal wear and talent portions were held, the surprise audience favorite was not a boy from the big city. Dipolog City’s bet, Vic Jarane Martinez was the fair-haired bet last night, and from the judges’ favorable looks whenever he comes out on stage, he might just snag the title. Vic Martinez is 24 years old and stand 6′-tall. He was the second runner-up in the Ginoong Pilipinas – North Western Mindanao contest, won by Benjie Alvarez. Images above were sent in by alvindip from the local pageant.

Will gets nominated

Will Sandejas‘s career is on the upswing lately. Although the singer-actor failed to make the final cut [I think he was in the top 30] in Pinoy Idol, the Philippine version of the worldwide franchise of the reality singing competition, the moreno actor picked up a nomination at the Philippine Movie Press Club’s Star Awards for Movies. He is in the New Movie Actor of the Year category for his performance in Sikil. Other nominees from the movie include Romualdo Avellanosa [Digital Original Screenplay], Soon Lee Mi [Digital Movie Editor] and Ron Jancen Solis [Digital Movie Original Theme Song].

Harry’s Game

Of course, by now you know the story of Harry Chua renamed Harry Laurel for Provoq. Prior to making it big in the gay consciousness via the daring Parola movie, he was an innocent teener in bikini contests. Leftmost photo above was taken during the Ginoong Albay 2004 contest, where he lost. The middle photo shows Harry in another small contest at the King’s Royale Resort in San Fernando, Pampanga [he won]. And then, his major win in the big city, rightmost photo, was at the Heatwave Bikini Showdown in Metropolis Mall, Alabang.

In a recent conversation with Johnron, he mentioned that Harry has not lately been included in the appearances of their group [referring to Provoq] because cute Harry has no discipline as regards food and gym. Johnron declared matter-of-factly that Harry got fat. Now, I am for diversity and Provoq is such a motley group of sexy guys, e.g. old [Anthony Logan], lean [Niko Arellano], short [John Miller], gay [___], etc., so why can’t somebody on the heavy side be in the group? [And besides, Ken Escudero, who is a bit weighty, is also now included in Provoq!] Nevertheless, Harry Chua is such an adorable cub these days. Photos above were sent in by AdoraMawanay with a note that the images were taken at Tinago Falls in Iligan last month. I am so loving Harry right now!

Paolo Serrano with [some] clothes on

If you google Paolo Serrano, chances are you will see posts titled “Paolo Serrano scandal.” Of course, given the penchant of most Filipinos to label a roughly-made video worthy of xtube as a “scandal”, that scandal is of the handsome ex-Viva Hotmen member spanking the monkey on cam, in the confines of his room. Paolo is a Computer Science graduate [from Perpetual Help College in Laguna] and a ramp model, before he became a member of the pioneering group Viva Hotmen. He was last seen -playing coy – in the video Masahe M2M.

Dennis Barrion’s luck

With the Ginoong Pilipinas 2008 national pageant fast approaching [22 May at Metro Bar along West Avenue, Quezon City], many are wondering whatever happened to last year’s winner, Dennis Barrion aka Denver Olivarez. Of course he won’t be in the finals night to pass on his title to the new winner, because: [1] he was stripped of his title late last year due to bad attitude, according to the organizers, and [2] he was horribly disfigured in a car accident also last year. What luck Dennis had after the Ginoo pageant! First he gets dismissed from the Ateneo Law School reportedly for low QPI [grades]. Then his showbiz and modeling careers get stalled, indefinitely, because of the accident. Too bad.
