While we’re on the topic of caught-unawares, here’s another candid shot of a cute boy – ex-Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009 contestant Andre Endique. This adorable tv commercial model is not just a pretty little face with a nice little body and a little .. uh, he is also talented. He’s a singer, dancer, host and composer. He is good at the violin. The toned bod he owes much to swimming and tennis. So there, talent casters and tv producers take note of this smart and skilled little kid!

Back Stage

Bad boys, bad boys, watcha gonna do when they come for you? I love naughty boys back stage before a show or a contest. They are free to let it all hang out. Sort of like releasing some tension. Relaxing some nerves. Let’s see.. upper photo during the Bench Blackout show, from left, some guy who looks familiar but I do not know his name yet, nervous Jiro, charming Edouard and steady Rye. Lower photo, on the other hand was taken at the Mossimo Bikini Summit finals night. From left, impish Andre, pensive Dex, puckish Lem, and edgy Geron. So there! Happy Monday everyone!

Andre and Herson

Minor league models Andre Endique [left] and Herson Barias ham it up – in masks – for the camera. Andre tried to grab the top prize at the Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009, but was thwarted in his bid by a better-prepared Jiro Shirakawa. Yet, Andre got noticed in the competition, and has landed some big projects for tv and print ads. On the other hand, Herson with the long tongue, has also done some rounds in the bikini pageant circuit to relative success. Maybe he’ll do Mossimo, too, next year to up his street cred.

Freshman Caveat + Mossimo Update

The video Freshman is officially released today in VCD format in record stores and video outlets. The thing is, although its solo act, Andrew Miguel is flawless and hot and sexy, the producers can not fully assure us that the frontal scenes are still there, clear and intact. So, if you will be happy with a split-second shot of Andrew Miguel’s penis, then buy the VCD [DVD will be released Monday]. Otherwise, DON’T buy.

Jiro Shirakawa and Harold Oide

These are the other candidates of Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009. According to the press release in major dailies yesterday, this is the best batch ever. I might just have to disagree since the bestest batch was that of Brent Javier in 2003. And then again, this could be the second best batch ever – what with the fine and good-looking boys [see photos above] in the competition. Regarding the free tickets to the show, someone emailed and suggested that the Mossimo stores in the metro might just have them for you. So, troop to the stores and ask for tickets to the limited-seats-only show on Saturday at the Skydome of SM North EDSA.

Colt: Andre Endique

The new kid on the block is Andre Endique. The 18-year-old high school graduate of Valley High School in Las Vegas, NV, recently appeared in a Coke commercial [“mag Coke lang syempre!“] and from then on, his career has been on the upswing. He’s now gathered a local following after starring in that TVC. Andre, who stands 5’7”-tall, is set to invade showbiz pretty soon.
