Nipo-brasileiro model Fabio Ide takes on serious acting this time as he stars as Rowan in the new fantasy series of GMA, My Beloved. The hunky model, who is taking Filipino lessons, plays support to the station’s main man, Dingdong Dantes in the angel-mortal love story. It seems like Fabio’s here to stay for now.
Are they still relevant? These first-wave nipo-brasileiros who flew in a few years ago to Manila to do modeling work and have since overstayed in showbiz? Sure they were a novelty then, but with the onslaught of younger and newer models from abroad, are Fabio and Hideo still hot property these days? Just asking.
Here are more photos of the angel boys from the new prime time series of GMA, My Beloved, set to preem on Monday, 13 February 2012. John Hall [top images] returns on tv after his memorable appearance in the Survivor series last year. Of course, you’ve seen Fabio Ide‘s photos earlier as one of the half-nekkid angels on the show. Judging the promo pics, will we see more bulges and bumps in this series?
In other news, Brazilian male model and occasional tv actor and presenter Fabio Ide left town earlier this month to visit the United States. He was seen in the company of a known modelizer, the famous rich muscle queen. Last summer, he declared that “nobody can ever buy me and I am not for sale,” when asked if he ever gets any indecent proposals from gay guys. He says he’d rather work hard than agree to propositions of the sleazy sort. Right on!
The more conservative of the nipo-brasileiros in Manila, Fabinho “Fabio” Ide finally slips into tiny swim shorts, revealing some swelling, a lot of prominence down there. Fabio has been in the country for so long and it looks like he’s here to stay. He’s very visible doing tv shows and modeling jobs of late.
I nearly forgot, Fabinho Ide is in the Cosmo list, too. While his Nippo-Brasileiro contemporaries have landed the nude-in-the-magazine gig a year ago, this is the first time that Fabio‘s baring for the girly pulp. He is playing coy, however, as he still refuses [as in most of his photos] to don tight ‘kinis and show his wares.
Now that it has been confirmed that gorgeous guy Hideo Muraoka is coming back to Manila next month to do some projects, the remaining nipo-brasileiros Fabinho and Daniel [in photo] and Aki must feel threatened with their day [and night] jobs. Hideo‘s the in-demand Brazilian guy before he left for home to get married and raise a kid. Surely the modeling projects [and some tv work] will keep coming in Hideo’s way, as he still has the body and face to die for.
Hey look, Dani‘s back from Brasilia after a vacation! He’s now ready to take on his commitments to GMA-7, which commitments were inked prior to his weeks-long R & R. His return to the Philippines completes the nipo-brasileiro triumvirate in modeling and showbiz. Of course, there’s charming Aki and cute Fabio in the picture. The three Brazilians, who are sought-after and well-liked in fashion shows and shoots, are also now on tv and the movies. I guess they’re really here to stay!
Who’s your choice? Three Brazilian guys with Japanese roots – Aki, Daniel and Fabio. They are all in showbiz now, as they make the rounds of tv shows, plus their new movie D’Survivors is showing this coming week in selected theaters. It’s an independently-produced flick featuring models, sexy shirtless in a bright and green island. Among the three models, who is your best bet in the hotta-meter? Poll’s shown above.
