Nico’s Pickle

There’s always someone for everyone. Nico Bolzico (a.k.a. Erwan‘s brother-in-law) may not do it for some, but this unconventionally handsome hunk from Argentina has a horde of followers in his social media accounts. Thanks to his sense of humor and well, occasional dropping of the trou, he’s endeared himself to his Filipino fans.

Cuban Surprise

You’ll have to Google the meaning of the title because I’m not really sure what it means. What I’m sure is that Tom Rodriguez is still packing the goods that catapulted him to Bench Body fame. He went to Cuba for this summer campaign, and I’m looking forward to those sultry, sweaty Havana shots!

Mr. Big

bob-brief-rectoMr. Big is back! This time, he’s showing off his nice, smooth legs. There’s no stopping Mr. Big as he takes on the internet with his impressive physical assets. Of course, the shirtless and underwear shoots are most appreciated. Happy weekend everyone!

throwBack Luke

Front or backside, Luke Jickain looks good at any angle. The veteran model has practically done every ad, TVC and runway show in town for A-list designers and commercial brands. He was once an underwear model for Bench Body.


A few years ago, a then fledgling model and ex-varsity player from San Sebastian College who went by the unique name of Zanjoe Marudo suddenly came into the exclusive models club of local brand Bench. The rest, of course, is history as Zanjoe made a huge leap into tv and the movies.  He’s now one of the more recognizable faces in ABS-CBN’s stable of talents. 

Rafael Then

In the olden days and for Throwback Thursday, actor and ex-Bench exhibitionist model Rafael Rosell looked like this – hale and hearty. He showed so much promise then for the underwear company, as he went on to appear in countless ads showing his mighty bod. Today, he’s into full-time tv acting, looking a bit less healthy as a vegan.  

T-back Thursday

For Old Pictures Day, we’re having a dose of Filpino-Japanese actor-model Chema Marquez a.k.a. Kenji Motoki [left] and Australian-Burmese model-host Marc Nelson.  Back in the good old days, these two were the favorite underwear models for the then-fledgling local brand Bench. And when the Bench people suddenly had the bright idea that sex-freakin-sells, Chema and Marc amped it up a bit by going extra daring in their fashion shoots and ads.

Throwback Thursday

The Grandfather of All Bench Models is actor and failed politician Richard Gomez [left]. As a 20-something fledgling actor, he steered the local brand to such great heights via ads and billboards. When it was time to hand over the reins, he chose another tall, dark and handsome teener by the name of Jomari Yllana [right] who appeared in racier advertisements in magazines and giant billboards around the metro.

Coffee Prince

It turns out hottie Aljur did not plan the whole thing, you know – that split-minute episode when he dropped his jeans to flash his Bench Body boxer briefs at the underwear show. Instead, he says he just thought about it at the last minute while walking on stage. I’m not so sure about that declaration but he sure did make most people happy at that time. And, oh by the way, don’t forget to watch tonight on GMA the preem of his new rom-com series Coffee Prince

Scent of a Man

Last night, GMA’s prized leading man Dingdong Dantes launched his newest cologne for local brand Bench. Dubbed as the Empower Deo Cologne, the line was endorsed by Dingdong himself in a grand show, where he went around shirtless with a bevy of sexy male mods.
