Oh, hawt! Erstwhile bikini open regular Marko Maristela is back and he’s still got the goods to tickle our collective fantasies. He went to Macau for a few months to perform at DD2 Disco with the other Filipino dancers. Marko is now home, sporting a new mane and name – Jiro Naruke, in an apparent bid to enter the professional models’ league. This 26-year-old hunk – with his physique and appeal – can easily wing it.

Basti Romero in Santuaryo!

Today’s theme is boys with tattoos on a lonely beach. The lead actor in the new indie flick Santuaryo is this mysterious tattooed hunk who goes by the name of Basti Romero. His 411 soon. In the meantime, mark your calendars guys. On 17 March 2010, Santuaryo will be shown in selected theaters, such as Remar, Roben, Gotesco Grand Central, Robinsons Novaliches, Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Ermita, Robinsons Iloilo, Robinsons Bacolod, Ultravistarama Cebu and Gotesco Ortigas. Santuaryo is produced by Climax Films [Bayaw] under the direction of Monti Parungao of Sagwan fame [or notoriety].

Hot Hot Heat

I think it’s the onset of summer already. The weather’s pretty hot, oppressively hot in the city. I’m dreaming of the beach and boys in tight swim trunks. Like Eric Soriano here. This chinito model, who stands 6’1″, was a featured bachelor of Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine a couple of years ago. He is also a favorite model of designers in the Philippine Fashion Week series.

Victor, Victor!

Hottie Victor Aliwalas is set to make his mark this 2010. After playing bit and supporting roles on tv for the past couple of years, this newest hunk on the block is being groomed by GMA-7 as one of its more important leading men in the network. He describes his two years in showbiz as fast-paced,” which included making four movies (Monster Mom among them) and several TV shows (Marimar, Kim Sam Soon, Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan, SRO Sineserye and Kaya Kong Abutin ang Langit).


After some roast beef and steak, let’s have, uh, another kind of meat. Too much of the pretty boys in cute little shorts and flower-patterned briefs can be a bit ho-hum after a while, right? So how about some boy from the other side of town? Like this one. His name is Domar Tiongson, 23 years old and a native of Camarines Sur. The 5’7″-tall Domar used to be a performer at the now-closed Lips Bar. By the way, that’s the tip of his penis.

Hump Day Boys

Today’s eye candy boys are nipo-brasileiros Daniel [top] and Fabinho. These Brazilian models are enjoying their time here. Just recently, they were spotted in Davao playing with a rather small python. Probably, Daniel and Fabio are taking time off from a busy schedule of shows and shoots. The two models are part of an ensemble cast in the indie flick D’Survivors, showing this month.


So, there really is a controversy brewing about Jake’s billboard in Magallanes. Here is an article from the Business Mirror dated 7 February 2010 [Sunday]: Aside from the potential danger they pose to pedestrians and vehicles during typhoons, it is more often than not the questionable contents of the colossal billboards dominating the busy and crowded city roads of Metro Manila that become people’s object of criticism. The most recent one is Bench-Body’s advertisement billboard of “new second skin” product depicting Jake Cuenca, Bench model and one of ABS-CBN’s celebrities, in a “provocative” pose wearing only a pair of scanty briefs. The complaint came in a letter to the editor from Atty. Romulo Macalintal, veteran-elections lawyer, stating that “the advertisement is an intentional and blatant disrespect for family values.” He said the campaign is a total disregard of his children’s right to be free from an excessive public display of vulgar, lewd and unwholesome product endorsements. Erected at the Magallanes interchange, the billboard serves as a “welcoming view” to motorists and commuters alike upon entering Makati City. The issue raises the guidelines being followed in approving an advertisement material.” Read the entire article here.

Ben & Sam

Here goes the PR: Tony Lapena [in photo] plays the abusive father of Ben in the upcoming independently-produced gay-themed love story entitled Ben & Sam. The film promises new heights in gay film making by totally erasing all gay film clichés. The film stars gay indie king Ray An Dulay and first-time actor Jess Mendoza. The story revolves around a popular urban campus that sets the mood of tender love between the formerly straight campus king and the newly transferred campus jazz dancer. The film perhaps has the most graphic gay love scenes, and promises frontal nudities that are placed in the most appropriate situations. Ben & Sam is tentatively showing this February at UP Film Institute. So there. I hope you got the message starting at “graphic love scenes” and “appropriate situations.”

Hot Legs!

Brazilian cutie Daniel Kenji Matsunaga is having the time of his [modeling] life in Manila! He’s landing projects after projects, not only in TVCs, print and runway jobs but also on teevee. He was recently in Aljur‘s The Last Prince as a werewolf, a shirtless baddie but hawt nonetheless. Pretty soon, he’ll be seen on the big screen as one of the half-naked models stranded on an island in D’Survivors. Things are really looking great for Daniel’s career here. Does this mean he’s going to stay just like dear Aki?

Oh Jakey!

This is the image of Jake Cuenca that went up teasing and taunting in the Magallanes flyover in Makati City. Actually, it’s a bit different from the theme of Bench Body this season – Lost in Summer, which had the models in a tropical swamp setting. Here, Jake’s indoors, endorsing paisley pattern briefs reminiscent of the tacky underwear of the 70s. Yet, whatever Jake is wearing, he still looks smokin’! Now imagine this photo a thousand times bigger on a busy, busy interchange.
