The biggest male stars on tv in 2009 were the Bench guys: Gerald, Aljur, Dingdong and Piolo. Of course, the acknowledged kings of the rival stations – Piolo for ABS-CBN and Dingdong for GMA-7 churned prime time hits, one after the other. Waiting in the wings were the younger ones – Gerald for ABS-CBN and Aljur for GMA-7. Gerald and Aljur were even pitted against each other – as rivals – although Gerald’s off to a drawn out head start over Aljur. What does 2010 hold for these guys? Will they sustain their popularity and street cred? Will there be a newer and bigger star – someone who can sing and dance and act passionately? Whose star will shine brighter, brightest?
