Mikael Daez plays it cool on a hot sunny day. Tall, dark and with a handsome mug, the 31-year-old actor is currently focused on his underwear endorsement, funny bits on prime time Friday tv and afternoon soaps. Obviously we’re more interested in his undergarments projects.
I always thought Filipino-Lebanese Ameen Sardouk is going to romp off with the Mr. World Phils 2018 title. He eventually settled for first runner-up, and I guess beauty contests these days are more of the rocket-science types: answer the questions like a genius and you win the top plum.
The top prizes went to Filipino-Italian dude Marco Poli (8) who won Mister Supranational Phils and to varsity athlete JB Saliba (14) who took home Mister World Phils honors. All is fair, bulges and bodies notwithstanding.
This is how JC de Vera kisses a man – tender, sweet and wet. That lucky man happens to be Jordan Herrera, in the movie Best. Partee. Ever. Directed by HF Yambao, it will be shown on October 20 to 26 for the Cine Lokal of the Film Development Council of the Philippines. It’s showing in the following SM cinemas: Megamall, North Edsa, Mall of Asia, Manila, Sta Mesa, Southmall, Fairview , Bacoor.
One of the hunks who easily caught our attention in the Cosmo feature was Gerson Rodriguez. Tall, dark and mysteriously handsome Gerson does modeling on the side. When he’s not showing off his fab abs, he’s a cortador de jamon profesional, aside from his bio in the rag, which lists his job as a “Business Manager.” Whatever, I’m impressed with his body of work.
There’s a new group called Pinoy Magic Men, and it’s wonderfully composed of boys from all walks and uh, persuasion in local show business. I featured the first three members before – Vin, Albie and Marco – off to the US for a series of shows with drag queens. The other half of the team is made up of Jay, Markki and Victor, who – if you ask me – could still give the younger ‘uns a run for their milk money.
How could I have missed out on this one, who’s turned into a hottie while doing laudable work in a public hospital somewhere in the South? Filipino-Latvian model and nurse Clint Karklins has my vote for whatever contest he’s in. Go ahead and add him on your Boys-To-Watch-Out-For while we’re in awe at his body of (modeling) work.
These two resident shirtless boys of ABS-CBN are not at all threatened by the half-naked entry of Aljur into the studio system. In fact, Vin and Joseph went on a leisurely trip to the murky river to catch dead fish. You know, take their minds off the competition, hatch an evil plan and show off the washboard abs in the process. I’m not asking who’s better, this time.
