Centerfolds 2012!

So we have the new list. Let’s see. The main man’s Paulo Avelino, shirtless just like last year in the magazine’s annual fleshfest issue. Of course, this one’s a bit conservative considering what he’s doing for his brand Bench Body.

Next, we get to see Mikael Daez again. After his star turn in a campy movie, he’s quietly doing the afternoon and prime time series for his home studio GMA. No images of him in bikinis and briefs, still.

Singer Markki Strom gets to tease us with his bulge. Remember his Bench fashion show appearance a few years back? Ballsy!

Of course, we get the token big-guy-in-tight-briefs just like Neil Etheridge last year. This time, it’s big guy John Spainhour – model most ubiquitous – in tight briefs.
Comeback kid John James Uy shows us his form that nearly won him the Bench model search five long years ago. He still has it!

The twins! The twins Anthony and David Semerad display their fine forms. A prelude to their exposure next year, as the hunky siblings start to play for the Blue Eagles in the UAAP.
Underwear model Ian Batherson looks emaciated here, but he is hot, hot, hot in person! He’s now busy with his tv commercials, after an acting career went pffft.

And then there’s GMA’s brightest hope – Alden Richards. He’s slowly gaining ground in the leading-man department. Who knows, maybe he’ll be on the cover next year? In a bikini!

Ahh, little man JM de Guzman! The bring-home-to-momma boy is ABS-CBN’s favorite, too, as he top bills a long-running afternoon soap.

Lastly, Paulo Avelino-clone Joseph Marco takes off his shirt for the magazine. The former model is determined to make his mark in showbiz next year, with a huge PR machinery behind him.

The Year That Was: BYTs

Brightest young things. These are the future centerfolds of Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine. The new leading men of the future. The hunks gracing Mens Health magazine and shirtless-hunks-on-the-cover pulp. This year they did good: Enrique Gil [leftmost], after his Cosmo sleaze and tease, had a pit, I meant hit prime time show. Meantime, JM de Guzman [middle] landed his first starring role on a tv series. And lastly, Alden Richards is the newest teen sensation in GMA.

Cute Puppy

Isn’t he adorable? Twenty-three-year-old JM de Guzman is slowly but surely weaving his way to the top. After his career turn in ABS-CBN’s top-rater Mula Sa Puso, he’s now one of the more popular actors in the network. The young heartthrob’s multi-talented, too, as he takes on the theater, wrestling, mixed martial arts and singing.

Everybody Here Wants You

Twenty-two-year-old Juan Miguel “JM” de Guzman‘s star is on the rise. From a virtual unknown, he toiled his way up the showbiz ladder. He first appeared in tv commercials, then did theater and production work for the University of the Philippines’ Dulaang UP. His recent outing as one of the male leads in an ABS-CBN top-rating prime time soap established his popularity further.
