Before the Brazilians and the fly-in models lorded it over the local runways, the male models that we had were these ones. The kind you would sometimes see in the inner city street corners, drinking high-proof distilled spirits with their shirts off. Well, they have nice bods and cute faces, too.

Who’s the hottest of them all Mercator models? Well, this is the best in the backyard of one of the top agencies in town. There’s AJ Hanson lying in front.  Nat Kiefer is standing at Hideo Muraoka‘s right. The skinny model at the back is Terrence Lloyd. Seated in the middle is ex-fatso John Daryl Rose. The dark-skinned one at the back of model-of-the-moment Sam Ajdanii is Jovic Susim, part actor. Tattoed guy is newbie Rob Ricafort, behind the only guy in shorts Edward Raven. Rightmost guy is 18-year-old Kevin Redder, all of 6’2″ and a budding model. Who’s your best bet?

Of the ten boys below, I haven’t featured yet this tall, dark and handsome model from Bicol. John Victor “Jovic” Susim first appeared on national tv as a lanky contestant on the Teen Edition of ABS-CBN’s reality show Big Brother. Since then, this 19-year-old, 6’1″-tall cutie has appeared in countless TVCs and appearances in some tv shows.

May Day!

On the occasion of May Day festival [or Labor Day in the country], I bring you not one, or two but ten freakin’, sexy, shirtless boys m-e-s-s-i-n-g by the pool!

Who’s your best bet?
