Aki for Bluewater Spa

Last night, our favorite fly-in model Aki was introduced to the press as one of the new endorsers of Blue Water Day Spa, “a wellness retreat” with branches all around the metro and in Tagaytay City.  Of course, Aki – who looked a bit bigger and bulkier – is still sexy and cute and charming in his new haircut and look.  This Brazilian-Japanese model is really here to stay for quite some time!

Dennis Trillo Hottie


Twenty-eight-year-old actor Dennis Trillo is scorching hot!  If Piolo has this new ad campaign for local clothing brand Bench wherein he’s shirtless and sexy in jeans, Mr. Trillo is off and running, too, with his Soda Man endorsement. I think this is the same clothes brand that featured AJ Dee as an image model before. Now, it’s Dennis Trillo‘s turn to simmer and sizzle to make Soda apparel more popular and prominent.  Of course, this cute guy’s still busy with tv and film projects as he tries to regain leading-man status again.

Jiro Dedicates Win To…

.. his mom, who is sick right now.  Nineteen-year-old Jiro Shirakawa snagged the Mossimo Bikini Summit title just last weekend, edging out the prominent contestants. He hopes that this win will open more doors for him in the modeling world, which is now his bread-and-butter as he has reportedly stopped going to school at the Philippine School of Business Administration [PSBA]. This Japanese-Filipino cutie has been previously featured in top magazines and publications, and has done the major fashion campaigns of Bench, Penshoppe and Mossimo.  He says he wants to concentrate for now in modeling, as he has put school off temporarily.  His mother, who has cancer, has accepted this decision of Jiro.  Showbiz next? We’ll find out soon.

Jake and ‘Jur

Arguably, these are two of the hottest actors right now in the competing stations. Jake Cuenca [top] is one of the primary actors in the top-rating primetime show Tayong Dalawa on ABS-CBN. Aside from that, he’s busy with other tv appearances in his mother studio and out-of-town shows connected with his being a member of the boy-teasers Coverboys. Of course, he’s still one of the models for the local underwear line Bench Body, as he’s still in fighting form. On the other hand, there’s cutesy Aljur Abrenica of GMA-7, who’s getting noticed with his acting chops in the afternoon drama series Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin. Well, sometimes he goes shirtless in the episodes and he ups the swoon factor most of the time. A few more of the polishing and the working out and this kid’s going to be big [read: more popular and in demand] in showbiz. Ever since he won the Ultimate Hunk title in the reality show Starstruck, Aljur Abrenica ‘s star has been on the rise. He’s GMA-7’s next best bet for stardom, barring any unforeseen circumstances, e.g. bad press, sex vids.

Happy Monday!

Check out Paolo Serrano‘s artsy picture! After doing Heavenly Touch , showing his acting skills in the process, it seems that the career of this former member of Viva Hotmen is on the rise again. He is getting offers to do another movie plus some tv appearances in soaps. He has finally weathered – or so it seems – the minor controversies that hounded him in the past, e.g. amateur video and scam.

Sassan Sizzles

Reed-thin and in-demand model Sassan Shokouhi is our Sunday boy.  The 24-year-old cutie – born to a Filipino mother and an Iranian father – has been in most runway shows of top designers and brands in the country.  He is also a sought-after mannequin for fashion editorials in major fashion magazines and publications.  The 6’1″-tall Sassan – once featured as a hot bachelor of Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine – appeared in a sexy music video with a woman called Gretchen and a billboard for Gibi shoes. [Update: Jiro Shirakawa grabbed the Mossimo 2009 title last night].

Tutok on May 27!

Just a few more days and it’s Tutok time! It’s the new movie featuring newcomer Raymond Cabral, in a controversial role that will bare his soul. Okay, I’ll stop at bare. And then again just watch on May 27 as this movie has a sensitive theme – media sensationalism and male frontal nudity [courtesy of Raymond]. The entire cast will be at the Robinson’s Galleria Movieworld on 27 May 2009 at 6 p.m. for a meet-and-greet. Aside from Robinson’s Galleria, Tutok will also be shown at Robinson’s Ermita, Robinson’s Metro East, Cinerama, Remar, Gotesco Grand, Gotesco Ortigas and Ultra Vistarama in Cebu.

Piolo Goes To Cannes!

Top actor Piolo Pascual is thrilled and tickled pink – his movie Manila was included in the 62nd Cannes International Film Festival’s Out of Competition/Special Screening section.  The 32-year-old actor is also one of the producers of the movie, which is actually a two-in-one presentation of the Filipino movie classics Manila By Night of Ishmael Bernal and Jaguar by Lino Brocka.  A few days ago, Piolo walked the red carpet at Cannes and showed real Pinoy Pride.

Andrew So Fine

It’s model-athlete and agent provocateur Andrew Wolff! He is still hot, isn’t he? To those who have been to the Island of Boracay recently, the big bad Wolff is a regular fixture on the beach. This hunk is often seen plodding and tramping through the sands, shirtless with loose board shorts you wish they would just fall off. He’s supposed to be busy with his rugby team and apparently, he’s not into showbiz and modeling anymore as he has been scarce on tv and the Manila scene.

Fil-Brits

These are the handsome and sexy guys born to Filipino mothers and British fathers who are in the modeling scene. Jon Hall [top photo], of course, is the original Bench underwear guy. Although he is getting a bit older, he still has that raw appeal that bagged him the Bench underwear contracts. On the other hand, newbie Phil Younghusband is an endorser for another underwear brand, Hanford Ice. Boyish and charming, Phil is determined to make it in showbiz. TGIF, guys!
