More photos of rising actor Paulo Avelino
. These were taken on the set of his prime time show on GMA-7 – All My Life
starring Aljur Abrenica
. In case you are wondering about the funny costume, he’s playing the role of a model and that’s how male models in his soap opera world wear clothes. The less-clothes scenes of Paulo are getting him noticed, though. Probably it’s part of his transition from sweet-sixteen roles to adult characters on tv and in the movies.
The cute kid’s name is Arvin Barazon
, a 22-year-old fresh graduate of Communication Arts from UST in Manila and an aspiring theater actor. The 5’9″-tall campus figure is also the winner of the Lakan ng Meycauayan
contest in Bulacan. He competed in the Lakan ng Bulacan
pageant, which was eventually won by up-and-coming model Jerby dela Cruz
. Of course, Arvin Barazon, with his looks and built – plus, a little buff and burnish – has the potential to make it in modeling and maybe, showbiz.
Speaking of 2008 Summer Bodies
contest, one of the guys who didn’t make the cut was Suzuki Sodatsugu Aragon
a.k.a. Piko Suzuki
. Yet, this 21-year-old former Bodyshots
contestant is poised for the big time as he’s launched as one of the Survivor Palau regulars. This would mean constant tv exposure and, of course, name and face recognition due to the fact the show’s on the national prime time slot of GMA-7. Which means, whether he wins or not, Piko Suzuki has already outpaced [and outstripped] his contemporaries in the bikini contests – seedy or otherwise – that he has patiently joined in the past.
The theme is show-your-butts-in-a-red-background. Top photo is that of Franz Sioson
a.k.a. Fronnie Sioson
, a 25-year-old bikini open vet, who placed first-runner-up at the 2008 Summer Bodies contest [won by model Raph Almeda
]. Franz also tried his luck at the 2008 Mr. & Ms. Sexy Body competition, sponsored by Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall. Unfortunately, he did not win. Lower photo is that of Christopher “Chriz” Villarba
, a 23-year-old bikini contest regular, who placed second-runner-up at the 2008 Summer Bodies contest. Too, he joined the 2008 Mr. & Ms. Sexy Body contest and he didn’t get the top prize.
He could have been doing this right now in Palau island where the Philippine edition of the Survivor
reality show franchise was recently shot. One-time famous actor Harry Laurel
a.k.a. Harry Chua
auditioned for Survivor
and got past the second round. Unfortunately, he got cut in the interview portion and I’m not so sure if this was because of the no-celebrity-in-the-show clause. And then again, Harry Chua
‘s not really a celebrity – he got famous in the highly successful Parola
movie and that was that. Too bad, Harry’s not in the show. He could have spiced some things up in there. Plus, it would have resuscitated his showbiz career.
These are scenes, of course, from the the movie Showboyz
shown recently. Top photo shows Kristofer King
prepping his pud to penetrate Topher Baretto
. Which makes me wonder – Why was there a need for King
to make it hard to shoot the scene
? Was there really an actual penetration in this particular schtick, reminiscent of the 80s pene
movies? Lower photo, on the other hand, is not that of King’s but of some bit player, who really had to make his penis stiff and strong to pull off an act – I mean, pull some chair and a case of beer. Life is hard.
He used to be very visible and transparent
in the sleazier bikini contests a couple of years ago. Leighton Galzote
of Ilocos Norte first appeared on the bikini scene as a contestant in the Ginoong Pilipinas 2006
contest [won by Alvin Asuncion
a.k.a. Ken Escudero
]. He represented Laoag City and he won the Ginoong Pilipinas-Mindanao
title, sort of a runner-up award. He then hopped on to the Hataw Super Bodies 2007
competition [title went to this Kish McBride
guy] plus a host of other small contests which required him to wear the tiniest of fabrics. After exposing himself in the sleazefest event called All Out masquerading as a fashion show in Metro Bar, he disappeared from the scene.
Cute and sexy models and athletes, but each one’s totally different from the other. Marx Topacio
] is a baller while Luke Landrigan
is a surfer. Marx is skin head while Luke has wavy hair. While Marx
has made modeling his bread-and-butter for now, Luke is a full-time surfer and instructor at a surf school in La Union when modeling offers are not in the way. Both are hot of course. So, who do you like best?
The first movie of Brazilian model Akihiro Sato
is now showing at the Robinsons Galleria IndieSine – Handumanan
[Remembrance]. It means we should all go and see it, if only to support Aki
most loved, who is doing his acting debut in this independently-produced flick about finding one’s self and all those serious matters about discovery and love and friendship. Cutie Jason Abalos
is also in this movie, which is produced by Red Room Productions from a grant by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts [NCCA].
That’s how you can describe freelance model and bikini open regular Jake Mendoza
. Companionable. Gracious and giving. Affectionate and amiable. The 22-year-old native of Bacolod City who has since made Quezon City his home in the past few years was last seen as a contestant at the Ginoong Pilipinas 2009
Unfortunately, he did not win the title. Also known as Mark John Sellado
, this 5’9″-tall cutie is slowly making a name for himself in the bikini pageant circuit because of his charming and welcoming ways.
