The impossibly-named eighteen-year-old Cepter Maniclang was hailed last Thursday as the Ginoong Pilipinas 2008. The 6’0″-tall candidate from Bugallon, Pangasinan bested 30 other guys for the top prize, including the much-touted JC Dungo of Mandaluyong City who settled for a runner-up position. It was a major upset for the city boys as the provincial candidates hauled in the major awards [Vic Martinez of Dipolog City was Ginoong ExpoWorld 2008]
Whatever happened to the Ginoong Pilipinas winners? The bikini mill churned out dozens of cute boys from around the country in tiny gauzy underwear. But where are they now? Did they ever make it as models, actors and, uh, entertainers? Reader mcm451 sends in these images of 2008 Ginoo winner Cepter Maniclang and informs us that the guy’s still busy joining local pageants in his hometown in Pangasinan. Sweet!
