Gil Top

This might very well be the “Love Local” post. Lately, it has been slim pickings on the matter of local male models donning underwear for photo shoots and ads. Good thing Gil Wagas is such a trouper – he’s always in his undergarments in public. While I like my boys with some mass and muscles, I’ll take an exception on this sexy one. Love local, indeed.

Skinny guy’s guide to a beach body

Gil WagasI’ve never been a big fan of lean guys, but somehow model and pageant winner Gil Wagas tickles my fancy. Like ultra-thin feather fancy. Gil reminds me of those tall guys you would sometimes encounter along Bulge Boulevard corner Swelling Street, drinking high-proof distilled spirits with their shirts off and smelly shorts on. The ones with the nice bods and cute faces. I’d kill for that bod, if you ask me.

Varsity Bikini

College basketball produced some really good models today. Tall and interesting guys who are daring and baring. Just like Gil Wagas and Miko Raval, who are making waves on the runway in all their near-nakedness.


The 6’3″-tall Gil played for the University of the East Red Warriors some time in 2009. Although he never played to great heights (and pop status in the UAAP), he went on to become a sought-after model, with his interesting look and long, lean frame.  Gil was Mister International-Philippines 2013.


On the other hand, Miko Raval once played hoops for the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons. The 6’1″-tall cutie  is fast becoming one of the it boys of Bench Body. He’s appeared in almost all the campaigns of the underwear company lately, plus some major exposures in the runway shows. He’s also into showbiz these days.


Skinny is an inny at the Mister International – Philippines contest. Reed-thin former UE basketball player and Mr. Lapu Lapu City titleholder Gil Wagas romped off with the crown, beating 22 other good looking contestants.  Apparently he won because he nailed the Q & A portion. And then again  a beauty pageant is not rocket science.
