G-ford Lara, half of the bod-to-die-for brother-models team [the other being CJ Lara], is 28 years old and single. He has been modeling for quite some time now for A-list designers and brands in the country, most notable of which were assignments for Bench Underwear and Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Eligible Bachelors Show. CJ has also appeared in a movie, the unlamented Xerex Files Trilogy, where he played a deadbeat fiancée in the “O” episode of said film.
He holds a hyphenated title as long as his name. Model-entrepreneur-singer-dancer-designer Carlos Bernardo Santos Concepcion has been getting a lot of buzz lately. Easily the most controversial in his group, Take 5 – that boyband that performs every 1 pm on the Sunday show SOP, Carlos has remained unscathed. In fact he has admitted to the photos that circulated in the net recently [see post ]. Still, his person remains a mystery as to his lineage [apparently an heir of the Concepcions of RFM, but isn’t Joey Concepcion the heir of the empire?], his school [DLSU or Benilde?], his real occupation [he listed “designer” in the last Metro Magazine body calendar]. All I know is that his mother is a prominent Santos of Cebu, that he has a big vacation house with a big pool somewhere south of Manila, and that he walks as if he’s floating. I’m not making the last one up, but he does look nice doing that; imagine his heels not touching the ground, that is how he does it. Just watch SOP every Sunday and see for yourselves. It is awfully cute. And then again, let’s give the good kid a break. He is in the biz to earn a living and to enjoy his life.
Despite the bad press and the appendectomy scar, I’m still rooting for this Cebuano model in the 2007 Century Tuna Superbods Beachfest. Vince, who is 23 years old and stands at 6’1″ has been modeling for 6 years now, and I think this will be the first time he has joined a looks-and-brawn contest.

This guy who regularly works out at Gold’s Gym Makati, finished 2nd runner-up to Fil-British model Jon Mulally in the Century Tuna Superbods Model Search in Boracay Island last year. He is only 22 years old, stands 5’10 and get this guys, he has green freakin’ eyes! He is also known as Chris Samson in the modeling biz.
