One of the reasons I watch Survivor Philippines these days is because of Ahron Villena [photo]. And Ian Batherson. Aside from the fact that they always wear tight shorts sometimes, the two boys have been getting a lot closer on the show. It gives me a certain thrill to see them together in their most unguarded moments. Sweet. In fact, someone even made a Facebook fanpage of the two boys under a cute portmanteau, AhrIan . Happy Saturday everyone!


Let’s give way first to a newcomer. Well, actually not really a newbie in the bikini contest business. He’s 20-year-old Joven dela Cruz, who was last year’s winner of Ginoong Urdaneta City in Pangasinan. And then this year, he went all the way down to Bicol province to compete in the Ginoong Magayon contest. The 5’11”-tall cutie landed as first runner-up, barely edging out Will Sandejas who took the 2nd runner-up position. Joven has also appeared for shows in the Philippine Fashion Week, L’Oreal, Matrix Hair Gala and RRJ.
