Summery

Here’s Robby Cubacub, another one of those regulars in bikini competitions. He’s a native of Porac, Pampanga and he goes to Manila once in a while to compete in male personality contests. Robby stands 5’10”-tall and has tried his string-bikini-luck in last year’s Sta Lucia Mall – Mr. Sexy Body, Mr. Philippines-International search, and the Subic Beach Bodies contest.

Moving

Why was Aljur Abrenica spotted most recently at rival network ABS-CBN’s studios? What was he doing there? Is he turning his back on GMA-7, the one network that discovered and geared him up for stardom? I’m asking too many questions actually. Aljur’s just in the ABS-CBN studios to record some sequences as a guest VJ for the music station MYX. He’s the VJ for the month of May and at the same time, he’s promoting his music album. Wait! He has an album?

Money Boy?

Well, he’s merely wearing dollar trunks, literally. Piko Suzuki a.k.a. Suzuki Aragon has been in the showbiz news lately, albeit of the sleazy tabloid type of headlines. Apparently, some tv personality offered him Php 5,000.00 upfront for a one-night stand. The bulletin didn’t reveal if the cute Filipino-Japanese lad accepted the offer, though. Which leads me to think, does Piko Suzuki’s image rouse and rally anyone to think that he’s really for hire?

Gimmick

He may not have gone through the Handsome Boy Modeling School but 21-year-old Franco Daza is one lucky kid on the acting block. Franco was first cast as a model for local clothing brand Bench. This ultimately paved the way for his signing up a contract with ABS-CBN to star in Gimik 2010, an anticipated series in the network. Franco lists his jobs as a singer, performer and songwriter on his web page. At least, he’s talented. With a nice bod.

Spotted

Someone sent this candid shot of Parola superstar Harrison Chua a.k.a. Harry Laurel. Apparently, this was taken at some fashion show featuring under- and swimwear models, with cute Harry as one of the highlights of the presentation. As I have said before, he may not be as fit as a starving and bulimic model but he is definitely cute and hot as a young bear cub. Now I’m missing Harry!

Two Boys

Two cute boys making their moves – and some noise – in their respective networks. Jiro Shirakawa [left] is all set for showbiz as he’s cast in ABS-CBN’s new show with a lot of buzz – Gimik 2010, an angsty teen drama series. The Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009 winner is determined to make it big in the limelight as he has already dropped out of school to go full time and to help his sick mom in the family expenses. On the other hand, Paulo Avelino just upped his machismo status by confirming that he’s the father of the child that his girlfriend’s carrying. GMA-7 is supporting him all the way, and pretty soon he’ll be starring in his own shows and soaps in more mature roles. He’s also one of the best bets of the studio for stardom this year.

Up

It will take a very long time when Coco Martin will pose again like the one in the photo above. Or even do this. That is because he’s now on mainstream and prime time tv, acting his heart out like the way he used to in independently-produced movies a few years back, sans the nudity. His network’s got his back, and he is being groomed to be a dramatic lead. Unfortunately for us, he may have to wear his clothes for now.

Hotness

Model, VJ and actor Victor Basa still looks hot after all these years. Well, actually, after only about four years in showbiz. Time was when he was a thin and brooding boy who signed on to ABS-CBN’s talent arm for its shows and soaps. Now, the 24-year-old cutie is one of the easily recognizable names in hunkydom come, thanks to his exposure in the network and in local clothing brand Penshoppe’s campaigns. This year, Victor says he wants to concentrate more on acting.

Willord!

The guy with the hairless pits is Willord Tacay, a 20-year-old hopeful from Baguio City. He’s a regular contestant in Baguio’s male personality contests, plus he gets to go around the region’s town fiestas for the bikini contests. Now, he’s in Manila to try his luck. With a fresh face and finely sculpted bod like that, I’m pretty sure Willord will go far in the scene.

Twink Monday!

Here’s 18-year-old Ginger Cinco, who is starting at an early age in the bikini pageant circuit. He first appeared in the Mr. PUP [Polytechnic University of the Philippines] contest a couple of years ago. Then he joined the Generation East Model Search in 2008. While he’s not busy in school, he goes out of town [as far as Bicol and Ilocos] to join the bikini contests in town fiestas.
