Felix Buenaobra is one of those quite and unassuming male models blazing through the fashion runways lately. The 26-year-old graduate of the College of St. Benilde [he was a campus crush back then] was first seen as one of the 2005 eligible bachelors of Cosmopolitan [Phils] Magazine. In that year, he finished second runner-up at the Island Heat Bikini Open. Subsequently, the 5’11”-tall model appeared as one of the candidates in the 2006 Mossimo Bikini Summit [batch of Hermann Weber].
Remember Janvier Daily? Yes, that‘s the one with the nude photo, which popped out a few months back in the worldwide web. Well, he’s now doing some modeling in between acting assignments on tv and the movies. He’s always seen in the go-sees for fashion shows and his efforts have paid off, as he was cast in big shows of late. Janvier Daily was in the last Bench show at the Araneta Coliseum, if I’m not mistaken, and then the Cosmopolitan [Phils] Magazine’s annual Bachelors’ Bash. So it seems everything is doing fine after all for Mr. Daily.
Sergio Giray is an attractive and sexy 23-year-old aspiring male mod, who used to punch in at the summer bikini contests. Too, he was a former dancer in an all-boys group, which did the rounds of the variety shows of ABS-CBN. He was discovered by an agent in one of the shows and the rest was history in bikini-dom come. The 5’9″-tall Sergio’s best finish in a contest was a first runner-up win at the 2005 Island Heat Bikini Open in Cavite. He was last seen as one of the daring ones who peeled off on stage at the Vagina Monologues gay clone, Penis Talks.
Oh, quite frankly, I’m just using the title as a reason to post a photo of Mc Auriel Gagan here, who posed and preened for the cameras some time back [when he was still a Computer Engineering student] for a Christmas issue of a magazine. A native of Quezon province, Mc Auriel now works as a computer programmer for an established IT corporation somewhere in Ortigas Center in Pasig City. According to one office mate [who requested via email for an image of Mr. Gagan – and, you know who you are!], he is “really stunning in person.” So there, here’s a picture!
Newsflash: The shy Provoq guy, John Miller is headlining a show tonight and tomorrow night [28 and 29 November] at the bar formerly known as Lips [near LRT-2 J. Ruiz Station along Aurora Blvd in San Juan, M.M.]. It will be two revealing nights at the bar as John Miller – who changes the color of his eyes in six different hues consistent with his moods – strips to the bare necessities and the standard Lips gear, e.g. beads and sheer fabric. Just watch the shows, guys, and see how transparent our Provoq man can get! Show starts at 11 p.m.!
This is the mark-your-gay-calendar post. On 4 December 2008 at the UP Film Institute, the movie Love Birds will have its premiere night. This is the movie where the Johnron plays support to Joseph Izon and an import – a Puerto Rican based in L.A. who goes by the name of Alexys Fernandez [in photo with Mr. Izon]. Of course, it’s a happy gay movie set mostly in bucolic San Pablo City in Laguna [The City of the Seven Lakes!]. Joseph Izon‘s photos – naked and sinfully delish – for the promo of the movie, are now all over the web, but there’s more to see in the film from the makers of Sikil and Kurap – Roni Bertubin [director] and Ome Avellanosa [screenplay].
Funny, I have been posting Provoq photos in this site for quite some time and I noticed I haven’t profiled Chester Nolledo, yet. He’s one of the better-looking members of the strip-tease-and-dance group from Viva. If his showbiz bio is to be relied upon, he just turned 21 a week ago. Prior to joining the skin shows, Chester was a teen co-host of a variety show, a bikini open contestant and a student. He has already done four  movies since he entered showbusiness, the first one being the exotic dancer flick, Twilight Dancers.
Van Louelle Pojas is an 18-year-old upcoming singer – a product of the Philippine edition of the singing reality show Dream Academy on ABS-CBN. In said show, he was noticed for his good looks and great voice. Although he didn’t win top prize, the 5’8″-tall native of Talisay City, Cebu is now busy with mall- and out-of-town shows. It’s not a far-fetched thought if he joins the variety shows [and soaps] of ABS-CBN any time soon.
I was randomly going through some photos and this image of male model Hermann Weber came up. The 2007 Mossimo Bikini Summit alum and runner-up [to Jerome Ortiz] is, arguably, one of the hottest models who ever came out. Yet, he is most scarce these days. Last time I heard he was in this nice little movie called Kristo, a semi-finalist in the 2008 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival. Hopefully, he’ll make the big leap, too, from modeling to acting on tv and the movies one of these days, just like his contemporaries.
