Models Two

renferBeauty contests provide the platform for world peace and other noble causes. They do not just exploit the women and men in various states of swimwearness. Most of the time, the contestants move on to worthier causes, like modeling.  Rein Villareal (Phils) and Fernando Alvarez (Puerto Rico) competed against each other at the Mister International contest a year ago. Today, they are blazing through the local modeling scene as, uh, top models.

Police/Pool Man

It’s quite a treat if the man-in-swim-shorts feature has more to offer. Aside from the notable physical attributes, like decent abs, nice chest, strong legs, and other naughty bits, Mr. Philippines-International Don McGyver Cochico  (yes, that’s his name, and yes, they still hold male contests like this), is also a police officer determined to make this world a safe and better place. He’s doing a good job at “better place” in those Speedos.

International man (of the hour)

Mariano Mariano1Mariano3

A man in uniform is hot. Well, make that a handsome, hunky man in uniform! Mariano Flormata, Jr. is leading the way for police officers and other uniformed personnel to shed their clothes for a cause. After winning the Mister International title a week ago in Seoul, he’s back speaking about his advocacies. I think. And then again, if all else fails, he can always strip down to his underwear and dazzle us with his bronzed bod.

Misters for our sisters

NeilOur favorite police officer Mariano Flormata, Jr. is now in Seoul to compete in the Mister International pageant.  Of course, he has a huge chance of getting the title, whatever that will mean to the Filipino people. As for me, it would mean more images of the sexy guy in speedos and tiny undergarments! I can’t wait!

AdamDavies AdamDavies2While no one was looking late last year, Mariano’s cute runner-up in the Mister Philippines pageant, Adam Davies went to the Dominican Republic to compete in the Mister Model International 2014. Yes, bulges and cream! Our bet didn’t get left behind as he brought with him the goods! He ended up 3rd runner-up or something, and I guess that is a good thing.

Oh Mariano!

Of course, he won. Police office Mariano Flormata Jr., a.k.a. Neil Perez  won the title Mr. International-Philippines at a recently held contest of virile young men. He’s off to Seoul, South Korea for the Mr. International pageant next month. Okay, bring in the cops-in-erotica fantasies! I’m thinking boots and handcuffs, badges and bulges!


Skinny is an inny at the Mister International – Philippines contest. Reed-thin former UE basketball player and Mr. Lapu Lapu City titleholder Gil Wagas romped off with the crown, beating 22 other good looking contestants.  Apparently he won because he nailed the Q & A portion. And then again  a beauty pageant is not rocket science.

Mr. International

It’s a bumper crop of cute boys in this year’s Mr. International-Philippines search! Unlike in some contests, this batch is a heady mix of new and fresh faces with well-toned bods to boot! I’m eyeing these guys on finals night – [left-right] Billy Villeta, Ardee Concepcion, Jeffrey Sanchez, Jeff Yamanouchi and John Emmanuel Castillo. Finals show is on 21 June 2013 at the Fil-Oil Arena in San Juan City.
