Jerwin Ellao is 21 years old and a native of Pasay City. He was a candidate of the Valentino Magazine Coverboy Search held recently. Said contest, which featured a no-briefs-allowed-onstage-but-wear-something-skimpy-and -tacky portion, attracted quite a number of dishy guys from the entertainment industry. It was such a huge hit, owing to the attractive contestants, the fast-paced production, and of course, the audacity of the boys.
Twenty-one year old Gabriel Fajardo works as a clerk in an eyewear company [look for him in the malls!] and does modeling on the side. He lives in Cainta, Rizal. With the photos above, it gives me such cheer and delight with the fact that youngsters today are so bold and audacious in posing for photographs. For art’s sake, i presume.
Twin brothers Mark Latino [topmost photos] and Enrico Oliviera – screen names, most probably, took different routes in the entertainment industry. The bolder Mark Latino was a dancer-stripper for RAMM, a gay club along Aurora Blvd. in Quezon City, while the meeker Enrico Oliviera went on to appear as a bit player on TV. These half-Persian, half-Filipino brothers were raised in the Antipolo hills by their Filipino mother and stepfather. Enrico was literally discovered on the streets selling iced water and candies by a director of Channel 2, who then cast him as an extra on the hit series Esperanza. Mark Latino, in the meantime, heated up the stage at RAMM and was a major draw then. He was also gay magazine lust-candy for a time. Not much has been heard of the brothers now.
In the list of Zen Buddhist names, Kaisan means “Opening the Mountain” or more specifically “Founding a Temple” or “Founding Priest.” Whatever mountains are being opened in the process, twenty-year-old Kaisan Lopez is one fine young specimen who deserves a token shrine. An Engineering student from Bulacan, Kaisan has been appearing of late in tv soaps and series. He hopes to be a mainstream actor someday. More photos soon.
Gelo is another one of those nameless boys featured in gay rags out there. What struck me most about this 18-year old boy is the promise of youth vigorously thriving, which somehow awakens our fascination with the beauty of that awkward age. This boy makes one fine Sunday gazing – sunshiney, fresh and sweet. Oh, such jailbait.
When I posted photos of Reynald Llanes in a free gallery site a couple of months back, many were asking about the 411 on this guy. Reynald Llanes is 22, 5’9″ tall and a student of Nursing at the South East Asian Colleges. He does modeling part-time and has appeared in Fila fashion show, Street Bodies 2006, Bikini Watch, Campus Face 2006, and Makati Shangrila formal designers fashion show. According to the interview he did for Male Revue Magazine, he swears he will never “bare in a movie.” Guys, he said movies. Movies not magazines. And heck, there’s a lot of difference in there.
