Who’s Miko?

That guy on the left, who is he? He’s billed as Miko in the Bench Body summer ad Return to Temptation. He’s new, fresh and cute. Looks like there’s a new kid on the underwear block! By the way, the one in the yellow shorts is singer Jay R, behind him is Bench staple Ron Morales and rightmost is newbie Franco Daza.

Paulo Out Of His Shell

So you’ve been waiting for this. Paulo Avelino in his wet-jockeys debut. There’s no turning back for this 22-year-old actor, who was finally convinced to pose in his sexiest for the summer collection of local brand Bench Body. Will this move up the ante for his career?

Vintage Sunday

He was one of the most daring soft porn actors of his time. Juan Carlos “JC” Castro has long gone into retirement after his nekkid romp in the big screen, but his images still remain in various web sites. Last I heard he tried politics and ran as councilor in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan. He lost.


Perennial bit players Jon Mullally [left] and Rafael Rosell will not be left behind! I’m referring to the latest Bench Body series of ads, the ones in crimson and orange hued photos. It’s another Return to Temptation board for the local underwear brand, and Bench’s favorite hunks get their due. Their billboard can be seen along EDSA near the Guadalupe Bridge in Makati City – just a stone’s throw away from Aljur‘s giant photo of the Temptation series.


It’s a Friday! Time for some smut and sleaze. There’s an indie movie showing at the Robinsons Galleria now and it’s called Subok. Directed by Cris Pablo, this one’s a “queer sexy comedy flick approved without cuts” by the MTRCB. Photo above is one of the lead actors RJ Reyes, formerly a waiter in Malate district. The trailer can be seen in this link.

Will Piolo Return To Temptation?

Will he? Will Piolo Pascual always return to temptation? Judging by the latest declaration from Bench Body, the answer is in the affirmative. The giggly 30-something actor is the second endorser – after Jakey – to appear in the latest advertisements of Bench Body, interestingly dubbed as Return to Temptation. Aljur‘s next, of course, after his giant billboard has gone up in the now-famous Guadalupe Bridge site.

More Hideo

He’s a familiar face among weekend shoppers in a Makati mall. With wife and baby in tow, this Brazilian hunk could be seen walking around the mall, still strikingly handsome. Is Hideo Muraoka staying for good in the country, just like his fellow nippo-brasileiro models Aki, Daniel and Fabio? Will he try showbiz, too?


I told you there are a number of reasons to tune in to afternoon soaps! One of them is a constantly shirtless Paul Jake Castillo in ABS-CBN’s soap Alyna. The 26-year-old cutie from Cebu, who was discovered in a Big Brother season, is heating up the small screen via his nerdy-sexy look in the series.


Model-actor Jay Gonzaga is top billing a new production of Orosman at Zafira, one of the best komedyas ever written. The 5’10”-tall hunk [the abs! the abs!] was one of Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine’s top bachelors for 2009.

Here’s the PR: Dulaang UP is bringing back its blockbuster production of Francisco (Balagtas) Baltazar’s Orosman at Zafira this month. The show will run 4 – 26 February 2011 for a total of 15 performances at the SM Mall of Asia CenterStage.

Considered as one of Balagtas’ best-written works, this production first ran in February 2008 and was re-staged in August 2010 to sold-out, standing-room-only performances at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, UP-Diliman. The contemporary adaptation directed and choreographed by Dexter M. Santos, with original music by Carol Bello, garnered nominations for both Best Musical Production and Best Stage Director at the 21st Aliw Awards. This contemporary adaptation of Balagtas’ text celebrates the uniqueness of Philippine culture through original music and dance. After it closed in 29 August 2010, Dulaang UP continued to receive numerous inquiries and requests from those who failed to catch it and even those who had already seen the show but wanted to watch it again.

Shows are Fridays at 8 pm and Saturdays at 10 am, 3 pm and 8 pm. Tickets available at all SM Cinema ticket booths (call 470-2222) and at TicketWorld – National Bookstore, Robinsons Department Stores, Greenbelt 1, Glorietta 5 and TriNoma cinema ticket booths – (call 891-9999 or visit

Piolo Admits

Okay, let’s see. I’m so late with the showbiz buzz. Apparently, top actor Piolo Pascual is in the news lately doing a Tom-Cruise-on-Oprah bit sans the couch jumping. He just announced his relationship to KC Concepcion, and he’s happy with the “liberating” experience. That puts all – practically all – the gay rumors about him under the rug, right? Right?
