Eternal Summer

Fifteen years ago, actor Shintaro Valdez looked like this – a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed comer who starred in a string of comedies and romantic movies. There were occasional scenes where he’s required to wear speedos and he’s hot, too. Long retired from showbiz, he still looks the same today, fresh and sexy.

Temptation Aljur

It’s summer and he has to be shirtless all the time! GMA-7’s prized mangenue Aljur Abrenica is shooting today for the new movie Temptation Island and it looks like he’ll be in for a lot of sexy scenes. Aljur’s one of the leading men in the camp classic, together with Tom Rodriguez and Mikael Daez, who replaced an ailing Paulo Avelino.

Hideo All-Over

He may have lost that major account where he’s in tight undies all the time [Folded & Hung], but he snagged a big-time modeling contract for SM Department Store where his images are all over the store branches around the country. Hideo Muraoka is perhaps the most recognizable Brazilian model these days, thanks to his exposure in SM. Is he going showbiz anytime soon, a la his contemporaries Fabio, Daniel and Aki?

Spunk

There’s another cute guy down South who’s making a name for himself in the modeling scene there. His name is Benjoe Leoncio, a 19-year-old student of Civil Engineering at the University of San Carlos in Cebu City. A few more polishing here and there, he’s good to go and he can give the Manila models a run for their money.

Temptation Tom

Principal photography of the re-telling of the camp classic Temptation Island started yesterday and every one’s looking forward to the movie. Of course, some are waiting with bated breath how Tom Rodriguez is going to tackle the role previously held by this 70s actor, who appeared in the original version in his red cotton briefs most of the time.

More Fine Men

More hot men in briefs from Cebu! Of course, you know that guy on the left – David Sommerauer, a 19-year-old Filipino-Austrian student from the University of San Carlos. The one on the right is Edwin Albert Ayo, a 20-year-old student at the Cebu Aeronautical Technical School. Both are up-and-coming models in the Queen City of the South.

Hunky

That’s the best word to describe 29-year-old model and tv host Kiko Rustia. This former Survivor Philippines castaway poses for GMA-7’s Black Book which will be launched next month. He hosts the travel and wildlife show in his station.

Becoming

His star is on the rise, too! Ex-Survivor Philippines hottie Marvin Kiefer is now swamped with work in his home studio, GMA-7. He’s seen most of the time shirtless in his weekend sitcom. In addition, he is gaining quite some street cred with his guest appearances in the station’s shows and soaps. Image above is from the soon-to-be launched GMA Artist Center Black Book [Catalog 2011].

A New One

Trying his luck in show business is commercial model and theater actor RJ Cruz. He will be seen in the Cinemalaya 2011 entry Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa by Alemberg Ang and Alvin Yapan. RJ, under Bellhaus Entertainment, is 23 years old and a graduate of the Far Eastern University [FEU].

Briefs

Add Filipino-Australian model Gerard Sison to the list of underwear catalog models. This 21-year-old hunk once tried his modeling luck in Manila, where he landed important gigs for designers and TVCs. He’s now based in Singapore as a full-time mod.
