Dear Cosmo [Phils] magazine people: Our idea of a centerfold would be something like this. Put in those actors, celebs, athletes, models and wannabes in bikinis, briefs and, uh, cake icing. Those images would be sexy. Fully-clothed boys and men in your magazine with a cover that says “all-new, all-hot hunks” just do not cut it. And then again, maybe we’re just expecting too much.

Martin Plus One

Although, current ABS-CBN it boy Martin del Rosario failed to make it to the top 10 list of this year’s Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine’s centerfolds, he gets to be featured in the inside pages as one of the “69 all-new, all-hot bachelors” with his ……….

….. BFF commercial model Zuher Bautista. Both shirtless boys share a love for having sex on the beach. And while Martin declares that “men are like babies” who need “attention and pampering,” Zuher wants to be kissed all over. Cute.

Centerfolds 2012!

So we have the new list. Let’s see. The main man’s Paulo Avelino, shirtless just like last year in the magazine’s annual fleshfest issue. Of course, this one’s a bit conservative considering what he’s doing for his brand Bench Body.

Next, we get to see Mikael Daez again. After his star turn in a campy movie, he’s quietly doing the afternoon and prime time series for his home studio GMA. No images of him in bikinis and briefs, still.

Singer Markki Strom gets to tease us with his bulge. Remember his Bench fashion show appearance a few years back? Ballsy!

Of course, we get the token big-guy-in-tight-briefs just like Neil Etheridge last year. This time, it’s big guy John Spainhour – model most ubiquitous – in tight briefs.
Comeback kid John James Uy shows us his form that nearly won him the Bench model search five long years ago. He still has it!

The twins! The twins Anthony and David Semerad display their fine forms. A prelude to their exposure next year, as the hunky siblings start to play for the Blue Eagles in the UAAP.
Underwear model Ian Batherson looks emaciated here, but he is hot, hot, hot in person! He’s now busy with his tv commercials, after an acting career went pffft.

And then there’s GMA’s brightest hope – Alden Richards. He’s slowly gaining ground in the leading-man department. Who knows, maybe he’ll be on the cover next year? In a bikini!

Ahh, little man JM de Guzman! The bring-home-to-momma boy is ABS-CBN’s favorite, too, as he top bills a long-running afternoon soap.

Lastly, Paulo Avelino-clone Joseph Marco takes off his shirt for the magazine. The former model is determined to make his mark in showbiz next year, with a huge PR machinery behind him.
