Cherroy Curamen is a winner

Twenty-eight-year-old Cherroy Curamen won a title last year at Lips Bar’s monthly contests. He was in previous bikini competitions from Zambales to Heatwave Bikini Showdown [where Harrison Chua won].  This 5’11”-tall freelance model had to go the Lips Bar route to finally snag a title in a bikini [or, lack of it] contest. He is reportedly now in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia working in a restaurant.

How was it again?

Okay, continue the discussion here. The movie has been shown ages ago and people are still talking beyond the merits of Sagwan. Too, it involved now the State U’s role in screening films far from the reach of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board [MTRCB]. For whatever it’s worth, the movie Sagwan brought about a lively interaction – nasty or otherwise – on the continuing debate on freedom of speech and expression versus public decency and pornography. Maybe we can hear the side of the producers and directors, too, as I’ve been hearing another story on the exploitation issue. In photo, Dennis Torres, one of the lead actors in the movie.

Robby Cubacub stands out

Twenty-year-old Robby Cubacub is another of one of them sexy boys with impossible abs and tiny waists that could fit into even tinier speedos to show off a chock-full of, uh, wonders. Robby Cubacub is tall at 5’10” and he looks better in person, i.e., oozes with x-appeal.  Last seen as one of the finalists in the Mr. Sexy Body 2009 contest, Robby hopes to make his mark in the modeling world. He is a native of Porac, Pampanga.

Rei Hernandez is Mr. Sexy Body 2009

Twenty-year-old Rei Hernandez snatched the title Mr. Sexy Body 2009, the first bikini contest for the year ushering in the summer season.  The contest, which is an annual event sponsored by the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall, featured 13 guys in  skimpy underwear, all vying for the P50,000.00 cash prize.  In the end, it was Rei Hernandez who romped off with the title. Rei is a student at the Far Eastern University in Manila.  This is his first win in a major contest.

Renzo Redux

Renzo Martinez is back and a reader sends in this amateur [but amazing] photo through email. Too, reader Jor-ass writes in to correct some information that Renzo is not 20 years old as he is already 22, married and a winner of a certain Mr. Body Hunks 2008 contest.  Most probably, the photo’s a bit dated as the moreno guy has lately etched a tribal design tattoo up on his shoulders. Just the same, he is swell!

Chriz Villarba amuses

In bikini open years, Christopher “Chriz” Villarba would already be in his late 40s. That is because this 5’8″-tall cutie has been in almost every competition where he has to wear speedos and briefs. Actually, he is only 23 years old and his most recent win was at the Summer Bodies 2008 contest sponsored by Filinvest Festival Mall [he finished second runner-up]. This summer, expect to see more of Chriz Villarba, who is not retiring from the bikini open competitions yet.

Rogie Lumba relaxes

After the celebrations of Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras around the world, everything mellows down and everyone sobers up this Wednesday. Of course, it is also my favored day of the work week because it ushers in the grand thought of a weekend, fast-forward. Rogie Lumba shows us how to take a breather, unlax and unwind. Rogie, who stands 5’8″-tall, is a 21-year-old freelance model, who was discovered at the Ginoong Antipolo 2006 contest.

Summery: Renzo Martinez

Now that summer’s fast approaching, watch out for 20-year-old Renzo Martinez in the thongs-and-trunks contests of the season. The 5’8″-tall student and part-time model was last seen as a contestant at the first bikini open contest for the year – the 2009 Mr. & Ms. Sexy Body sponsored by Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall. Unfortunately, he did not get in the finals. Let’s see how this moreno with the great bod fare in the competitions to come.

Geoff Eigenmann moves?

Actor Geoff Eigenmann has reportedly signed up and over to GMA-7, his home studio’s rival network. Unconfirmed reports state that the cutesy actor, who is turning 24 next month, has taken over the role vacated by JC de Vera [who is in turn, moving to ABS-CBN] in Obra, a prime time series. Geoff was formerly a talent of GMA-7 before he switched to ABS-CBN where he did soaps and shows. Recently, he started to shed off the poundage, the teen roles and some clothes to portray adult characters on tv.

Herson Barias is waiting…

…for the big break. Nineteen-year-old Herson Barias first burst into the bikini scene last year when he joined the Heatwave Bikini Showdown sponsored by Starmall in Alabang. He was the favorite in the contest, judging from the shrieks and shouts from admiring fans in the audience. Too bad he only placed second runner-up [eventual winner was Kish McBride]. The 5′-11″-tall native of San Pedro, Laguna is sure to be back – with vengeance -this summer for the bikini open contests.
