Bench Finals on TV tonight

The Be Bench: Be Famous or Be Anonymous Grand Finals will be shown on tv tonight. Of course, everyone knows, 18-year-old Carlo Guevara [middle] took home the grand prize. First to be eliminated was Sam Milby clone, John James Uy [right], touted as the heavy favorite early on in the image model search. Calm and composed Haroun Morales [left] nearly got the top plum, as he slugged it out with Carlo Guevara towards the finale. Here’s hoping Haroun will eventually get his due, now that he got a bit famous during the contest.

Carlo Guevara wins Be Bench Model Search!

Eighteen-year-old Carlo Guevara from Pasay City won last night’s Be Bench: Be Anonymous or Be Famous at the Araneta Coliseum. The 5’9″-tall teen nearly backed out of the competition after he saw the muscled guys during the go-see at Megamall. But his brother, Adrian Paolo, who also landed in the top 30, convinced him to proceed anyhow. Now, as the grand winner [together with female winner Regine Angeles], Carlo Guevara will be the next face of Bench in its print ads and billboards.
