Jon Mullally above water

Big Brother House resident Jon Mullaly revealed recently that he had an uncomfortable sense of belonging in England where he grew up. Emotionless, he was caught on cam revealing to a fellow resident that he did not feel welcome in England during his growing up years, that he always considered himself an outsider there, and that he wished he grew up here in the Philippines. Jon is finally loosening up inside the famous house. Maybe a little prodding from the other residents could push him to divulge more about his background, which – for now- has remained a mystery.

Leading Man: Rafael Rosell

After finally proving his worth as a serious actor, sans the annoying accent, Rafael Rosell is now elevated to leading man status. Rafael recently bagged the Supporting Actor plum at the film critics’ Gawad Urian for his role in the lesbian movie Rome and Juliet. In a recent interview, Rafael noted that after winning the award, the press is now interested in his body of work rather than asking him about his body [due largely to his Bench underwear contract].

Wendell Ramos accepts indecent proposals?

A few minutes ago at Showbiz Central on GMA 7, Bench-actor-with-the-flexed-butt Wendell Ramos was seated in a chair with electrodes attached to his fingertips, a blood pressure cuff on his arm, and a pneumatic tube strapped around his chest. In short, he was attached to a polygraph. The host asked him whether he has accepted any indecent proposals that came his way, and the actor answered “No.” The test results , however, showed that he was lying. For whatever it is worth, the lie detector test may or may not be conclusive. For sure, it will be a big issue against him though. After all, a lie detector, its proponents claim, records the “internal blushes” of a liar.

Mano Mano: Michael Roy Jornales

Michael Roy Jornales is one of the featured fighters in ABS-CBN’s rip-off of The Contender – Pinoy Mano Mano. Michael Roy was first seen as the grand winner of Little Dreamboy, a kids’ talent and personality show on the now-defunct SangLinggo nAPO Sila noontime show on ABS-CBN. He disappered for a while, and recently reappeared on rival station GMA 7 as one of the martial arts experts on the hit fantasy series Encantadia.

Dennis Trillo doesn’t go to the gym

New daddy Dennis Trillo is on the cover of this month’s Men’s Health [Philippines] magazine. He revealed that he does not go to the gym to develop his physique. He has his own DIY exercise regimen, which includes boxing for cardio, pushups and two sets of dumbbell exercises for his arms, chest and upper body. For the cover shoot, he did a month-long “100 pushups a day, 50 Arnold’s presses with 15-pound dumbbells, twenty pull-ups, and another twenty close-grips.” It looks like his routine did wonders for his diminutive frame.

Clean-cut: Leandro Munoz

Last seen in a Fathers’ Day episode this year of Channel 2’s Maalaala Mo Kaya, opposite Sam Milby, Leandro Munoz was one of the more serious young actors of his time who showed a lot of potential. He was a Close-Up toothpaste commercial model before he was launched in 1999 as a Star Circle member. That same year, he was the Philippine Movie Press Club’s Male Actor of the Year. He did a couple of big-hit movies before migrating to the US [in LA] in 2002 with his equally-cute brothers, Carlo and Angelo. Leandro has a pre-teen daughter from a previous relationship.

Jason Abalos checks his laundry

Jason Abalos is showing signs of promise. While his contemporaries from ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Quest [he got eliminated early in the contest] have faded, the 20-year-old actor has been very visible on tv and the movies of late. He was last seen in the mainstream movie My Kuya’s Wedding and in the Cinemalaya Best Film nominee Endo [short for “end of contract”], where his acting was noticed by critics. Blessed with good moreno looks, the 5’10”-tall native of Nueva Ecija province has, however, stated in a recent interview that he will go sexy when his body becomes “fully developed.”

John Estrada’s derriere

Actor and Bench underwear model John Estrada may have been the first celebrity to reveal that he had butt enhancement procedure. While he has been legendarily blessed in the anterior, his posterior before was reportedly flat as a pancake. A kind reader from the East Coast wanted to share the photos of this guy’s butt enhancement through hydrogel in his new blog at
