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.

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.


Who is this guy wearing Bench Body briefs? Intense and expressive, he is making some distinct mark with his white underwear. His name is Ji Huan Bo, a 29-year-old Chinese mod, who’s currently the signed model of the Bench brand in his home country. Now, if only Bench can ask its models to do the same here – sans the photoshop treatment of its billboards and posters – bump, bulges and all.


This post is an image overload of model and actor Jiro Shirakawa, front and back. He is making rapid strides in the world of showbiz via shows and soaps of ABS-CBN. His star turning win at last year’s Mossimo Bikini Summit easily established his street cred among talent agents and scouts. After dropping out of school and seriously pursuing a career in front of the klieg lights, Jiro is slowly but surely inching his way to the top.


His relative success in showbiz is quite a feat. Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009 grand winner Jiro Shirakawa is enjoying his time on ABS-CBN’s teeny bopper shows. Prior to winning the top prize in the underwear contest, Jiro Shirakawa was a virtual unknown, hopping from one go-see or a bikini competition to another, just to earn his keep. Now, he’s really earning his keep and how!


In modeling parlance, a go-see is an arrangement or opportunity for the model to interview with clients such as magazine editors, art directors, casting directors, catalogue houses and the people who make TV commercials and movies. There will be a Bench go-see today, 12 May 2010 [Wednesday] from 1 p.m. till midnight at the Isla Ballroom of the EDSA Shangri-La Manila. Bench will be holding its biennial underwear fashion show [yes, 2008’s Blackout Show seems so recent] on 2 July 2010 and as early as now, the underwear company is looking for male mods 5’10”-tall and up to fill in those tiny colorful briefs. Bring photos, bio, portfolios and wear Bench briefs to audition.


Quick! While we’re on the topics of: [1] Jake Cuenca, launched as Bench Body’s face and flesh of its summer campaign featuring printed briefs, and [2] the showing of the new indie flick Santuaryo on 17 March 2010 featuring Will Sandejas in his full frontal eminence, here’s the question – Name some thing[s] in common between Jake and Will. I’m not talking about the briefs.
