Oh, these boys! Look how big they’ve grown! The one on the left is 20-year-old Albie Casino, who’s now doing bit roles in TV5 after his big career meltdown at ABS-CBN. He’s doing fine, actually. Albie’s a big boy now. And so is his good friend, 18-year-old Diego Loyzaga! A few more months before the underwear shots, perhaps?
Why is everyone suddenly asking for photos of newbie-new babe Jan Stephen Noval? Well, he’s cute but why the immediate interest in this boy? All I know is that he’s a prized member in the bump-and-grinder GForce group. Do you want to see him sweaty?
I remember an aunt, who always had a mean streak in her bones, describing the not-so-pretty boys as “mukhang boksingero” [“looks like a boxer”]. I presume she grew up watching Filipino boxers of yore, who had mangled noses and busted lips. Either that or she idolized Pacquiao so much. Photos above are that of Billy Bob, an amateur model who has joined some of the token bikini contests in town.
Despite the blue [or is it gray] contact lenses, our favorite twinkie Kaisan Lopez was a near-miss at the Heatwave 2007 – A Summer Bikini Showdown, held on 23 May at the Garden Resort in Alabang. Kaisan Lopez, who is very much visible these days for a showbiz coming, finished first runner-up to a more buff and unblemished chinito by the name of Harry Chua. Methinks Kaisan can always try again, as he is still young, inexperienced, and untouched by cosmetic science.

Ok kids, back to school. Here’s Bryan Roz Cruz, 19 years old and an upcoming model. The 5’11”-tall twinkie is from Fairview and a student at the Far Eastern University [FEU]. He has appeared in ramp shows in between school breaks.
Somewhere between the gourds, cucumbers and eggplants is Mark Brian Enriquez, another vet in modeling and bikini contests. The 5’8″-tall native of San Pedro, Laguna has appeared in ramp shows for minor designers and on tv shows in GMA 7 as an extra. Click on the lower photos to enlarge and see beyond the greens.
He has always carried this reputation as a guy who is exceedingly meticulous. People knew he irons his own clothes before he goes out. He’s got these very domesticated ways about him. He is a button-up guy about everything in his life: his nutrition, his exercise, his diet, his clothes, his cleanliness. Everything about him is very well-organized and crisp and clean. I’m making this all up to fill in the page. Here’s Jeffrey Pineda, a 24 year old part-time model from Mabalacat, Pampanga. Jeff stands 5’11 and is a Civil Engineering student.
One of the featured boys in the Labor Day post is Christian Medina, 22 years old and a native of Balagtas, Bulacan. The 5’10”-tall looker is reportedly one of the entertainers in Lips Bar along Aurora Boulevard, Quezon City, which bar is known for its risqué male revues and strip shows.
This post is a breather from all the posts on male models [famous or otherwise], bikini contests, celebs, and actors. Here’s amateur Erwin C. Antonio, a 24-year-old native of Iloilo City who is now based in Manila to try his luck in the big city. Erwin stands 5’7″ and weighs approximately at 120lbs. At present, he hankers for a slot in showbiz with a little help from generous and big-hearted individuals.
