I nearly forgot to put in this image of Xian Lim
as one of the top ten naughty and raunchy guys of Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine this year. The baller-actor is making giant leaps and strides in ABS-CBN despite the fact that he just came on board a year ago. Xian – who is 19 years old and a [former?] management student of the University of the East – was one of the 69 “hot new bachelors of 2008” for Cosmo mag, prior to landing in the top ten this year. He can be seen regularly in the weekly drama series Katorse
“Like an apple hanging from a tree, I pick the ripest one.” That’s a line from Katy Perry’s Thinking Of You
song and it might as well apply to the photo above. This was during the finals of the Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009
where the boys were made to wear latex-like skimpy bikinis. Delish! Of course, this angle’s a nicer view, too, as their backsides are displayed and compared. And the Best Plump Ass award goes too …. Angelo Cacciatore
, fourth guy from right. Lem
‘s next to the rightmost guy, Andre
Quick! What do Lem Pelayo
[left], Mark Manicad
[center] and Andre Endique
have in common? Aside from the fact that they all participated in the Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009
. Other than the fact that they are commercial models, too. Of course, they are all cute and not that tall and can fit into tiny bikinis without fear. But, what else is their common denominator? Anyone?
That man would have to be model and actor Derek Ramsay
. The 29-year-old hunk is starring in a new afternoon soap for ABS-CBN dubbed as Ang Lalaking Nagmahal Sa Akin
[translated into the title above]. The romantic story will have Derek playing the role of a rich guy falling for a chambermaid suffering from strabismus.
In 2005, a then-20-year-old Felipe Flores
from Tijuana,Mexico landed in our shores to firm up his modeling resume. The tall long-haired boy landed projects on the runways and tvcs – he became a familiar face in Manila at that time. He left after a year to do other work in Thailand and China. He came back in 2007 and 2008 and he did numerous accounts such as Folded and Hung, Bench, Master Facial Care, Pizza Hut, Hope cigarettes, Kisa Papaya Soap [gasp!] and the most famous Coke Zero giant billboard in EDSA Guadalupe as a centaur. The 24-year-old hunk is now based in Los Angeles as a sought-after model.
starrer with lots of dick shots recently got an X rating from the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board [MTRCB]. Bayaw
was scheduled for its commercial run starting on 2 September 2009 at the Robinsons Galleria and Ermita theaters but it seems this will be delayed for a bit as the producer, Climax Films tries to file for a reconsideration of the harsh order of rating by the MTRCB. The producer wants the movie to be shown in its integral version as was done in the Cinemalaya festival a month ago at the Cultural Center of the Philippines [CCP]. Hopefully, the MTRCB will reconsider and give the go-signal for the uncut version in its commercial showing.
The 22-year-old actor is ready for the big league. Joem Bascon
is one mighty fine actor who can whip up a dramatic storm and award-worthy moment in a movie scene and tv episode. Of course, he is also sexy and come-hither in those Folded & Hung
ads where he is one of the endorsers. This year, he’s cited by Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine as one of the top ten hot new bachelors, proof-positive of his rising status as a serious actor with stunning [and sumptuous] looks.
A couple of years ago a little movie called Ang Lalake sa Parola
premiered at the UP Film Institute to a big happy crowd. It launched the showbiz career of one Harry Laurel
later re-named Harry Chua
, an innocent-looking and fresh-faced bikini open regular. Of course, he was a big revelation in the movie, which was written for the screen by Lex Bonife and directed by Jay Altarejos. The movie had a successful commercial run a month after, and people were clamoring for more of Harry. Sadly, he put on a little poundage and the movie offers got scarce until he disappeared from the scene.
Twenty-eight-year-old actor James Blanco
is now contented with his acting career. Although he plays bit parts in ABS-CBN’s shows and soaps, this erstwhile teenybopper who was groomed for leading-man status over at GMA-7, can’t complain. Too, it helps that he’s moneyed now, with a big house and a fleet of cars. Plus, he is into producing concerts and events these days. Talk about wise investments and smart moves.
