Star Turn

He’s supposed to be GMA’s next big star. Somewhere along the path to pop stardom, model and singer Geoff Taylor got waylaid. After winning the station’s reality search for the Next Big Star, nothing much has happened to the career of the hunky upstart. The 25-year-old native of Tuguegarao, Cagayan Valley was also a finalist at the 2006 Mossimo Bikini Summit [won byJerome Ortiz with runner-up Hermann Weber].


Is anyone watching TV5’s latest reality search for new actors, Artista Academy? I am. And I’m rooting for this refreshing Cebuano guy who goes by the name of Benigno Jose “Benjoe” Leoncio. Benjoe is a 20-year-old model and Civil Engineering student at the University of San Carlos. He’s one of the eight finalists in the TV5 show, together with Aljur‘s sexy brother, Avin.


Well, it’s hunky Rodjun Cruz for the weekend! The 24-year-old actor from the famed Cruz clan and older brother of ABS-CBN actor Rayver is still waiting in the sidelines for that one big break. Hopefully, the projects will come. In the meantime, he’s taking his shirt off. Now.


A bit of a bulge shot for current teen sensation Dominic Roque [leftmost]. Back then, he was posing for underwear ads with Aki and Victor for Penshoppe. The young upstart held his own against the seasoned ones, baby fats and all. He’s cute, though. These days, Dominic gets prime exposure in the ABS-CBN afternoon series, Aryanna.


Look what I found! Vintage Lem Pelayo six years ago at the Bench Body underwear show. Back then he was an upstart, trying to make it in the scene. From a total unknown in modeling, he’s now making inroads in show biz, the latest of which is a lead part in ABS-CBN’s afternoon series, Pintada.
