Top Boys

There was a time when the Bench billboard prime spot at the EDSA Guadalupe Bridge was allocated just for Piolo Pascual or Dingdong Dantes. Every time Bench comes out with its campaign – most anticipated of which is the summer series where the boys get to wear skimpy briefs – Piolo or Dingdong dominate that huge board by the river.

This summer, it’s Aljur Abrenica in that big spot. Shirtless and in jeans, the young hunk is basking in Bench glory as he dominates the EDSA Guadalupe skyline – a jumbo-mondo traffic hazard, if you ask me.

Borgy Porgie, Puddin’ and Pie

Kissed the girls and made them cry! Here are exclusive images of Borgy Manotoc as one of the underwear models of Bench Body. The 27-year-old model used to wear the Bench briefs [pre-Jakey and –Rafael and the thong throng] before he changed his undergarments allegiances. Now, he’s back – wearing the size-under briefs and shorts for the clothing company. Delish enough?

Riding in Tandem

Two cute boys riding a scooter, sharing an Aviator. Bench Body newbies Jome Silayan [back] and Paulo Avelino heat it up as they shift and move up through the gears in their respective careers. Jome’s cast as one of the leading men in a GMA-7 prime time series while Paulo’s the male star of the production in an afternoon soap.

Who’s Miko?

That guy on the left, who is he? He’s billed as Miko in the Bench Body summer ad Return to Temptation. He’s new, fresh and cute. Looks like there’s a new kid on the underwear block! By the way, the one in the yellow shorts is singer Jay R, behind him is Bench staple Ron Morales and rightmost is newbie Franco Daza.

Paulo Out Of His Shell

So you’ve been waiting for this. Paulo Avelino in his wet-jockeys debut. There’s no turning back for this 22-year-old actor, who was finally convinced to pose in his sexiest for the summer collection of local brand Bench Body. Will this move up the ante for his career?


Perennial bit players Jon Mullally [left] and Rafael Rosell will not be left behind! I’m referring to the latest Bench Body series of ads, the ones in crimson and orange hued photos. It’s another Return to Temptation board for the local underwear brand, and Bench’s favorite hunks get their due. Their billboard can be seen along EDSA near the Guadalupe Bridge in Makati City – just a stone’s throw away from Aljur‘s giant photo of the Temptation series.

Will Piolo Return To Temptation?

Will he? Will Piolo Pascual always return to temptation? Judging by the latest declaration from Bench Body, the answer is in the affirmative. The giggly 30-something actor is the second endorser – after Jakey – to appear in the latest advertisements of Bench Body, interestingly dubbed as Return to Temptation. Aljur‘s next, of course, after his giant billboard has gone up in the now-famous Guadalupe Bridge site.

Return To Temptation

That’s Jake Cuenca rubbing his weenie wiener on some skank’s legs on a Vespa. Most beloved of all Bench Body models, the premier nudist gets to have his first crack at the local brand’s new campaign [probably for summer] Return to Temptation. The new advertisement also features a raffle contest for the iconic metal-bodied Vespa scooter, courtesy of Bench.

Sphagnum Esplanade

This is the image of actor and exhibitionist sans rival Jake Cuenca for a Bench Body ad in the January 2011 issue of NYLON Guys. Last year, there were Jake pictures [this and that] all over said US magazine containing Bench’s whole page plugs for the brand’s stores in Serramonte Center in Daly City, Seasons Marketplace in Milpitas and Micronesia Mall in Guam. Hot, isn’t he?


Look who has a Bench Body ad! Finally all his overt and over the top exploits at getting noticed paid off. Rocco Nacino is hamming it up and no one’s going to stop him. He’s also seen as one of the more visible young wannabes in GMA-7.
