Do you like your boys big and chunky and stout and strong and porcine? Bikini contest regular and new Cappuccinos member Kish McBride a.k.a. Julian Kish is definitely getting plump and pudgy. This, however, is not stopping him from joining his favorite competitions – the one with bikinis. In fact, he even won “crowd favorite” award [see right photo] in one of the contests. How about you? Do you like them beefy and brawny?

The Cappuccinos!

Let’s see..topmost row is that of 22-year-old bikini contest veteran Kish McBride a.k.a Julian Kish [left] and 21-year-old student Rod Ortiz. On the second row, there’s controversial Sagwan actor Dennis Torres [left] and 23-year-old and 6’2″-tall Christian Cayabyab. Bottom row is composed of 18-year-old Filipino-German Adrian Patry a.k.a. Adrian Campos [left] and 20+-year-old Canadian Brendan Lewis. These are six of the eight members launched earlier tonight as the sexy male gorup, The Cappuccinos. Who’s your top pick?


That’s Kish McBride, winner in last year’s edition of Heatwave 2008: A Summer Bikini Showdown, sponsored by the Star Group of Malls. The reason I’m posting his photo in here – again – is because Star Malls launched yesterday the third wave of the competition. Those who are interested to join, the screening schedules are as follow: March 26-27, 2009 at the Trade Hall of Starmall EDSA-Shaw, April 1-2, 2009 at My Spa Fitness at Starmall Las Pinas and on April 3-4, 2009 at Function Room B, Starmall Alabang. For details, call 842-2513.

Before the rainy season sets in, the Star Group of Malls is beating the deadline for the bikini pageant season with its annual Heatwave Bikini Showdown! The Corporate Marketing Officer for Special Events and Sponsorship of Star Malls, Mr. Jeffrey Ventura, was kind enough to share with us eleven reasons why we should all troop on 29 May 2008 [Thursday] 7 pm at the newly-renovated The Garden Resort, 4th level of Starmall Alabang [formerly Metropolis Star Alabang], South Superhiway, Muntinlupa City. According to the organizers, “Heatwave has become the flagship event that puts a distinctive reputation and flair in bikini pageantry that has become too common for comfort.” Admission is FREE.

Ginoong Pilipinas tonight!

[Kish McBride]
Tonight will be the Finals of the Ginoong Pilipinas 2007 at the Clamshell 2 PTA Tent, Intramuros, Manila. Hataw Superbodies Bikini Open winner Kish McBride [representing Metro Manila] is drummed up as the next winner, judging from the exposures he’s been getting in the contest [aside from the fact that he’s one of the few gorgeous candidates in said annual search]. But then again, he deserves to win rightfully, if you ask me, while looking at this year’s bumper crop, rather mishmash of wannabe models, dancers and provincial-lads-promised-instant-fame candidates.

Another most-likely-to-win is Jachin Delovieres of Pangasinan, which province has produced most winners in the annual contest. The other candidates worth noting are those featured above, who might just pull a big surprise over the cocksure Kish McBride. However, as in the past, knowing how screwy the judging can get, any candidate – including los candidatos feos – might take home the title. Otherwise, the all-too happy judges will take them home.

Kish McBride joins another contest. Again.

Twenty-year old Kish McBride, buoyed by his recent win at the sleazefest Hataw Superbodies Bikini Open, is joining this year’s Ginoong Pilipinas. Kish McBride, who won the Manila preliminaries, is one of the favorites in this year’s contest, which has attracted more than 40 guys from around the country. The Ginoong Pilipinas pageant will be held on 12 May at the Clam Shell auditorium in historic Intramuros, Manila.

Kish McBride wins Hataw Superbodies

Kish McBride, a 20-year old Philippine Maritime Institute-student, won this year’s edition of Hataw Super Bodies 2007, besting 22 other bikini-clad hotties. Kish, who started out joining small-time village pageants [he won Macho Guapito Body Beautiful in his barangay and the Tropical Hunks Bikini 2006 1st runner-up trophy], topped pageant veterans and models in the annual free-for-all thongs tilt, held at the Metro Bar in Quezon City.
