is done with the Globe and is now basking under the Sun! The 30-something actor, who has a new movie [with Boracay scenes] in the offing, just signed up to be the newest and biggest endorser of Sun Cellular, a mobile telecommunication service provider in direct competition with the top two networks – Smart Communications and Globe Telecom [which Aga Muhlach used to endorse]. Expect the TVCs and print ads coming out before month’s end.
I just finished my 10K run earlier at the “On Your Mark: Draw the Line Run-for-a-Cause”, a fun run sponsored by QTV for the benefit of the Women’s Crisis Center at the East Avenue Medical Center [I did below 45 minutes!]. With all the men in running shorts out there,I couldn’t help but get distracted. Tee-hee. And then again,I just thought I will put up photos of men in shorts this morning: Paolo Paraiso
[top photos] and Piolo Pascual
. Both PP’s were shot in candid moments while shooting as leading men for their respective projects – Paolo for the commercial dud Ate
[Sister] and Piolo for the fantasy soap Lobo
Of course, he is in Bench’s ad campaigns. This summer, Rafael Rosell
gets to be the more prominent model-in-briefs for the underwear brand, as his exposure for the Summer White Gold catalog of Bench spreads to a lot of pages. Rafael
, who is still trying to work out his leading-man status on tv and the movies, seems to be the ultimate go-to guy of Bench underwear, as he is in his comfortable element in those one-size-under briefs.
Let’s see: There’s a loyal reader who posts his comments daily. Almost daily. He goes by the name of armpit lover
and of course, we all know what he loves most in the posts. As an offer of largess, here’s a photo of model-turned-actor Paolo Paraiso
, who was last seen in the movie Ate
[Sister], which seriously did not make money at the tills. The former member of Barako Boys
is busy with movie and tv assignments lately, and I am awfully glad he is visible in showbiz.
The abs! The abs! Piolo Pascual
is flexing and he is hawt! This came from a series of photos in one of his scenes in the fantasy series Lobo
, a ripoff of the movie Blood and Chocolate
and the Korean series Forbidden Love
. Looks like, with the low ratings of the series, the producers of the show are trying to sex up the scenes to rake in the viewers. If it’s going to be a half-naked Piolo in the next episodes of Lobo
, I wouldn’t mind staying up late to watch.
The hot season will never be complete without photos of a shirtless, trunks-clad Piolo Pascual
, the ultimate Filipino leading man of the moment. Tall, dark, ripped and handsome, Piolo Pascual
currently stars in his own fantasy series
in his home studio, has his own recording deal and album and a string of movies tucked up his sleeve.
There is a giant billboard of Dingdong Dantes
along one of Manila’s main arteries that is really distracting to drivers. The sheer size of a humongous Dingdong with a slim, ripped bod is enough reason to look up – with the hope of seeing something extraordinary from all those pits and pores in his magnified image. But I’m not complaining, though..
I was just thinking whatever happened to the dark-skinned hunk, Lauren Novero? Looks like the model-turned-actor has been quietly doing support roles on tv and in the movies. Last year, he was in the primetime soaps – GMA-7’s Bakekang and ABS-CBN’s Princess Sarah. Too, after his stint in the bump-and-grinder flick Twilight Dancers, he was cast in the movies Troika, Happy Hearts and Signos [Best Foreign Film at the Lone Star International Film Festival in Fortworth, Texas].
Speaking of Bench, whatever happened to Marco Alcaraz
? The 6’1″-tall Bench Body model has not been very visible lately. One reader sent in news that Marco is always seen in Cebu. The 25-year-old actor was born in Davao but he went to school in Cebu, prior to his stint at San Sebastian College in Manila [where he played varsity hoops]. Plus he has a Cebuana girlfriend
now, that’s why. With the entry of a new and more popular Bench underwear endorser, I’m wondering now if we’ll still get to see more of Marco Antonio Alcaraz in those colorful skivvies.
In a grand reveal held yesterday at the posh Trinoma Mall in Quezon City, Bench announced that Dingdong Dantes
is its newest model. The 26-year-old actor, who initially went bold and daring for the Cosmopolitan [Phils] Bachelors Bash
last year, also snagged his biggest billboard yet along EDSA [Guadalupe area], featuring him in Bench Body underwear. Which means, expect more of Dingdong-in-underwear ads – print, tv and billboards – soon.
