Hot Men in the Philippines

The Year That Was: Deaths

Gone too soon. In 2011, we lost some boys and men. Sometime in February, model-actor Leo Rabago [right] died of colon cancer at the age of 48. Leo was one of the popular sexy stars in the 80s and 90s, after a highly successful career as a model. A month after, John Apacible [left] was killed at the age of 38. Like Leo, he was also one of the more prominent sexy actors in the 90s.

The most shocking loss occurred in April when promising young actor AJ Perez died in a car accident. Tall and handsome AJ was being groomed to be the next important young actor of his time until fate interfered tragically.

Early December, singer, actor, theater performer RJ Rosales died of unknown causes at the young age of 37. To fans of 90s Sunday noontime shows, he was one of the hosts and singers of ABS-CBN’s ASAP. He then went to Singapore for a successful career in theater and on television.

  2. When you show guys who have gone to the great beyond in sexy bikinis, it cannot be helped that some of the viewers will feel necrophiliac.

  4. sobrang gwapo ni leo rabago. may isang duktor na specialist sa in vitro fertilization noong 90s na nagrerecommend ng sperm donors (but for a fee, of course). usually models na A list lang daw ang pinagpipilian. i’m wondering kung si leo rabago ay isa sa mga yon. R.I.P.
