Back stage 2

Different scenes, different shows, back stage. Top photo was taken before a Bench underwear fashion show, with Ervic Vijandre, Marvin Wijangco, JC Tiuseco and AJ Winkler posing for the camera. Bottom left photo was shot at the Cosmopolitan Bachelors Bash -Air 69 Edition, with Bruno Folster, Derek Ramsey and Paolo Paraiso. And of course with the bottom right photo, back and beyond the stage at the little bar that could, Lips Bar, with two boys waiting for their cue before a daring show.

JC and Ervic together in Bora

JC Tiuseco [left] and Ervic Vijandre were always together in the island paradise because they belong to the same modeling agency, that’s why. Last Holy Week [topmost photos] JC [5’11”, San Sebastian College baller] and Ervic [6’2″, De La Salle U baller] were inseparable during the day and at night time when they, for instance, attended the three major parties on Black Saturday. As opposed to their Holy Week vacation, JC and Ervic were again spotted [bottom photos] last April, this time working – as in doing a fashion show for the clothing brand Penshoppe. 

JP Jusay in Ginoong Pilipinas 08

Jose Pranz “JP” Jusay is one of the more prominent candidates in this year’s Ginoong Pilipinas male pageant. Methinks he will win one of the major prizes – if not the top plum – in this competition because he is handsome enough, with a body to die for [plus the fact that he entered the contest via the other JP , the sponsor of the swimwear]. Too, he has the experience as JP has long been in the minor modeling circuit and bikini pageants. He was the first runner-up in Ginoo‘s main rival, Maharlikang Pilipino a few years back. Trivia about JP: He is the grandson of the great actor Manuel Conde of the Juan Tamad movies of yore. Manuel Conde is the father of JP’s mom.

Bringing back Niko

I recently came across this old [read: 5 years ago] photo of Aimann Manuel Perea aka Niko Arellano of the Men of Provoq, when he was 10lbs. heavier [hair included]. Niko is the tallest, funniest and well-liked member in his group. Plus he’s got a nice, lean and hairy bod, too. I was egging Lex Bonife [Parola, Antonio] to cast him, too, in one of his movies with Viva Digital. Lex was saying he is too tall, which makes it doubly difficult to find a partner for him. Any suggestions , guys?

Joseph Izon is lead !

In case you are wondering about the lead actor in Johnron‘s new movie, he is none other than Joseph Izon. Joseph is doing an adult role in the movie currently being shot in the City of Seven Lakes, with a Puerto Rican male actor as love interest. I’m now correcting the previous post about Joseph being support to our favorite Provoq guy.

Unmasked: Danilo Lee

One of the candidates in this year’s edition of Ginoong Pilipinas is Danilo Lee, a 5’6″-tall looker who looks really young for his age [he is already 24 years old]. He is from Navotas, and I think, he is using his real name in this competition. Ginoong Pilipinas will be held on 22 May at Metro Bar along West Avenue, Quezon City.

Michael Escobido on screen

Turns out, Michael Escobido is also playing support in the movie where Johnron is. Michael was, in a way, discovered through this site – he registers well on screen and he was given a go by the director and producers. The 5’9″-tall daring boy from Pasay City is now determined to slowly inch his way to the movies. Here’s hoping we’ll see more of this guy in the future.

Johnron clarifies

Johnron Tanada gets a bit chatty and makes clear to me that he only plays support in the two gay movies he is doing this month – the one being shot in San Pablo City this week, and the Viva-produced Kambyo in Vigan City next week. Nevertheless, he declares that he’s got meaty roles in both flicks, and I suddenly wonder about the meaty part. Of course, he gets to do frontal nudity scenes in both movies, he says with a straight face. Bahala na, is how he is putting it. What comforts him, he states, is the fact that he’ll be handled by good directors and that he is finally making movies where he gets to show off real acting. When asked about Provoq, Johnron’s face puts on a cute smile, and says they are busy with shows in town fiestas. How about Harry, I ask? Johnron wrinkles an eyebrow with an answer – Why are you always looking for Harry? Mataba na siya ngayon.

Built: Tyron Gomez

Tyron Gomez is a 23-year old bikini contest regular from Angeles City. Tyron Gomez, who stands 6’1″-tall, is also a freelance model and indie movie actor. He was last seen at the 2006 Ginoong Pilipinas national pageant [won by Ken Escudero].

Ginoong Mindanao: Benjie Alvarez

From photos sent in by alvindip, here’s the winner of Ginoong Pilipinas – North Western Mindanao, 5’10” looker Benjie Alvarez. The guy’s got a nice face, and with a little bit of weight training, could give the Manila contestants in the national pageant a run for the top title. Benjie Alvarez bested 14 other guys in the region at the Ginoo search, which was held on 5 April at the Atrium Top Plaza Hotel in Dipolog City.
