Piolo’s Nephew

Someone take heed and make him a star, a big star! Apparently, his uncle – the great Piolo Pascual has not been pulling some strings over at ABS-CBN just so the cute 22-year-old Vince Saldana could snag some big projects. Maybe uncle Piolo believes that his nephew will survive in the biz by sheer talent and looks alone. Rightly so, Vince Saldana is destined to be big, given the right boost and breakthrough. He could take the route of, say Dennis Trillo who was a nobody in ABS-CBN until GMA-7 paid attention to a talented and charming guy.

Too, Candid

That’s Jiro Shirakawa, Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009 main winner, back stage at last year’s Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine Bachelors Bash. He’s got some cute and tight little buns in them size-under jockeys and he’s blazing hot! This 19-year-old model, who stopped school to pursue his dream to walk the runways and grace print ads, is playing his cards right as he enters showbiz pretty soon via one of the most-watched series in a tv network.

Candid and Loving It

Just recently, photos of Heavenly Touch actor Joash Balejado came out in the net, which photos were apparently taken from his social networking site. Although the images [lower set of photos] are rather tame, there is a generous heaping of Joash Balejado’s plump derriere and bulging crotch. Hot, actually. The newbie actor – who was also a bikini open contestant prior to joining the movies – does not have any follow up projects yet after the relative success of the masseur movie he starred in.

Andrei v. James

It’s a tad difficult to choose between hunks Andrei Allen a.k.a. Arvin Macu [left] and James Banzon. Both are ripped and buff, with strong and fit bodies to boot. Both were winners in the major bikini contests – Andrei Allen romped off with the main prize in Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall’s Mr. Sexy Body 2008 contest, while James Banzon snagged the title in Slimmers World’s Great Bodies 2007. In one occasion where the two hunks finally met in a contest – the Bikini Frenzy [sponsored by Golden Sunset Resort] in Calatagan, Batangas, everyone expected a clash of the titans for the title. They both lost to a younger and leaner boy who goes by the name of Adrian Asor.

Brent and Derek

After a game of ultimate frisbee, Brent Javier and Derek Ramsay are caught candidly in pictures. The models-turned-actors of ABS-CBN are passionate about their sports and whenever they get the free time, they’re off to the field to do the contact team sport. Derek has a movie coming out pretty soon with Sam Milby, while Brent’s debut on a prime time soap – the much-vaunted medical series similar to Grey’s Anatomy in ABS-CBN, has been temporarily shelved for airing. And, of course, they are hot!


He is starting early in bikini contests. Nineteen-year-old Philippe Siquinia was a regular face [and bod] in last summer’s male personality competitions a.k.a. bikini open. He was last seen as one of the contestants in the Ginoong Metro Manila 2008, eventually won by Ralph Darrel Mateo. Philippe usually tags along with his bestest friend in bikinidom come, Bryan Soriano who was a runner-up in the Ginoong Metro Manila 2008 contest. They also competed together in the Metrobodies 2009 Search for Models of the Year. They lost to Will and Dexter.

Dangerously Low

Don’t you just love guys in jeans worn so low that they leave barely nothing to the imagination? Take for example model and yoga teacher Al Galang, who is showing off his pubis already in them low-waisted jeans. What’s next, the base of his penis? There is no doubt that Al Galang is used to this kind of teasing, he’s worn bikinis before in the Mossimo Bikini Summit 2007 [where he finished runner-up behind Andrew Smith] and Speedos and tiny shorts in his yoga classes. He has every right to do so, of course, because of his fine bod. Happy Hump Day!


Twenty-year-old Josh Bustillo nearly made it as the winner in the first major bikini contest of the year, the Mr. Sexy Body 2009 competition sponsored by the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall. He was foiled by hunky chinito Rei Hernandez, another 20-year-old up and coming model. Prior to landing first runner-up in the competition, this cute native of Pampanga was the Lakan ng Nayong Pilipino 2008 and the 4th runner-up in Istilo Modelo Face and Body Search 2008.


Ramon “JM” Layson, Jr. is a 21-year-old student of BS Computer Engineering from the Jose Rizal University. If he looks familiar, this 5’10”-tall native of Masbate has joined the Ginoong Metro Manila 2008, Heatwave 2008 and Summer Bodies 2008 competitions. He may not have won said contests but he is making a mark on pageant aficionados with his unconventional physical attractiveness and sex appeal on stage.

The Consul of Sodome

That’s the title of the new movie where Marco Morales goes extra with an important role, and it’s a Spanish production. Which means Mr. Marco – shown in the photo above being made up for an important scene in the pelicula – is going international with his cocky ways. El Consul de Sodoma stars the Spanish actor Jordi Molla as the businessman and leftist poet Jaime Gil de Biedma who came to the Philippines in the early 60s to manage his family business in the islands – Tabacalera, the tobacco company. It was in the Philippines that the young businessman “woke up with a desire to rebel and release his homosexuality in the more dirty caverns of the city.” I think this is the scene where Marco’s character shows up because “dirty cavern” would be the cue to shoot frontal nudity scenes. The biopic of the important Spanish literary figure who died of AIDS in 1990 will be shown in November.
