A Man’s Man

I was reading an interview on 30-year-old actor Derek Ramsay here a few days ago and man, he has an impressive story to tell. And I was thinking, here is a Man’s Man! From the web – A Man’s Man is independent. He lives his life by his own rules and doesn’t blindly follow others. He has his own moral compass and knows the difference between right and wrong. He always tries to do the right thing. A Man’s Man is cool, yet charming. Suave and debonair succinctly defines him. Mothers, daughters, and women in general adore him for his masculine charm and sometimes mysterious ways. A Man’s Man is comfortable in his surroundings. Whether he’s at work, at play, or anywhere in between. he fits right in. In his closet, you’ll find sneakers, sandals, loafers and wingtips. You’ll find T-shirts and a Tux. You’ll find a football, baseball glove, basketball, golf clubs and fishing rods. A Man’s Man is always a gentleman. He never behaves like a boor. A Man’s Man enjoys life. He always has a winning smile on his face and enjoys being a guy. Other men want to be his friend and enjoy his company. A Man’s Man is a winner. He may not be outwardly competitive, but rest assured, he has to be the best at whatever he attempts to accomplish. Whether it’s on the field, links, or at work, he’s striving to be #1. A Man’s Man is quietly confident. He’s never cocky. He’s never boastful. He has a sure sense of himself and his place in the world.


Real man Derek Ramsay will soon be starring in ABS-CBN’s new prime time series Magkaribal [Rivals]. From the title alone, the story’s going to evolve around the classic story of a hunky leading man torn between two women. With such prime exposure on national tv, his star’s definitely rising. Is he the next big thing on the leading-man block?

2001st Post

Every male model – from wannabes to has-beens – was there last Sunday. There refers to the Century Tuna Superbods Run at the Bonifacio Global City, where a go-see and a models contest was held under the hot, hot heat. The real star of the show was real man Derek Ramsay, fresh from a knee surgery, running sweaty. Too bad he didn’t go shirtless like the one in the posters and billboards. But just the same, he was scorching hot! And this is the 2001st post!


This is the image on that giant billboard of corned tuna along busy EDSA covering one portion of the Boni Avenue station of the MRT. It’s so hot because Derek Ramsay‘s in it. He’s just shirtless with his jeans on, but the image is sultry, sweltry. Here’s one lusty and brawny guy, a real man in showbusiness, who’s oozing with all the charm and animal magnetism. I’m swooning. I have to stop now.


What is the taste of corned tuna? Dingdong Dantes is endorsing one. And now, Derek Ramsay is advocating it. The thing’s supposed to taste like corned beef, except that it’s fish and apparently healthier than the cow meat version. Anyways, Derek is pushing for it and I might just have to try this one out. Besides, unlike Dingdong who appears in a rival ad in white shirt and pants, Derek goes all out shirtless. In fact, he has lots of them billboards in EDSA posing as traffic hazard.

Caption These

What seems to be on Chris Tiu‘s mind, looking at Derek Ramsay that way? And why are they happy together? Your thoughts might be wandering a far bit to the prurient side, but these guys are conservative in real life. Derek has never gone sexy in public, beyond the straight male’s shirtless-in-jeans or in-board-shorts pose. No bikinis or jockeys, too. The same goes for baller Chris Tiu, who is so fuddy-duddy he refuses to even take his shirt off in public. Cute. So, for fun, let’s just caption these photos now.

Brent and Derek

After a game of ultimate frisbee, Brent Javier and Derek Ramsay are caught candidly in pictures. The models-turned-actors of ABS-CBN are passionate about their sports and whenever they get the free time, they’re off to the field to do the contact team sport. Derek has a movie coming out pretty soon with Sam Milby, while Brent’s debut on a prime time soap – the much-vaunted medical series similar to Grey’s Anatomy in ABS-CBN, has been temporarily shelved for airing. And, of course, they are hot!

Derek and Coco together

There’s a small movie, actually an episode of ABS-CBN’s drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya shown last week, that got the guys raving about the story and the actors. Entitled Boarding House, the episode starred the unlikely pair of Derek Ramsay [left] and Coco Martin. Since this one’s on primetime tv, there was no obligatory sex scene in the gay plot. In the episode, Derek is a straight man who has a history of sexual abuse, while Coco is the quiet gay guy. It’s a pretty interesting story as narrated by well-meaning friends who got to watch it. I just hope there’s a replay pretty soon.


It’s Will Devaughn, Derek Ramsay and baller Chris Tiu, for an oatmeal commercial [Nesvita Oatmeal 3-in-1]. I’m not so sure how they came up with the casting, but I’m guessing it’s the tall, handsome and .. there’s a dark one, a mestizo, and a chinito, all with good genes and backgrounds. ¬†Nevertheless, although the tv commercial came out last summer and we only had fleeting images of the guys in the beach, here are photos of the three hunks together for a lasting impression.¬†
