Nico does charity

This one’s a post for charity. I’ll just quote the PR: Campus hearththrob, varsity swimmer and commercial model Nico Ibaviosa will serve us our favorite Italian frozen yogurt in his bid to raise donations for SAGIP ISKO, to assist UP [University of the Philippines] students who were badly hit by the typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng. Come in costume on the said event and get the chance to win 2 months supply of free yogurt, a souvenir cap and a souvenir picture with our favorite Nico. The event: Saturday 1-5 p.m. , 31 October 2009 at the White Hat Italian Frozen Yogurt shop in SM North EDSA.

Shirtless Lipgloss Boys

More shirtless shots of the Lipgloss boys! Hot, hot, hot, aren’t they? Let’s see – top photo, there’s model Benjamin Besa who clinched the new role of Knox [those who auditioned for the role included Jiro Shirakawa and Raymond Cabral]. Then swimmer and dragon boat rower Kevin Lapena, who’s still in the show as Edge, and the State U’s prized swimmer Nico Ibaviosa as Brent.  In the lower picture, from left that’s Kevin, then Neil Coleta as Caloy, Ibav, and Zyrus Desamparado as Poknat. Catch the show [and the boys] as it opens on its fourth season this Saturday at 5 pm on TV5.

Lipgloss New Timeslot + New Boys

TV5’s teen drama Lipgloss premieres on its fourth season next Saturday with a new timeslot – 5 p.m. before Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and with the addition of two new boys and four new girls. Of course, you’re not concerned with the girls now and the new boys are model and former Mr. World-Philippines contestant Benjamin Besa as Knox and upcoming ABS-CBN Star Magic talent Ed Guanzon as Chip. The show veterans – who are still in the series – are hunky swimmer Kevin Lapena as Edge, top swimmer from the State U and Enchong‘s dear friend Nico Ibaviosa as Brent, Carlo Guevara as Jose Mari and cute boys Neil Coleta as Caloy and Zyrus Desamparado as Poknat.

Nico and Kevin

The cute hunky boys of Lipgloss, TV5’s teenage drama series, are in Camsur Watersports Complex now shooting for their summer episodes. The boys are shirtless, natch! Say for example, there’s 18-year-old Nico Ibaviosa [left] a new addition to the fresh cast.  He’s a Star Circle Batch 16 talent, champion varsity swimmer of the University of the Philippines [where he’s taking up a BS Industrial Engineering course], and a singer-dancer [back in Xavier School where he went to high school].  And of course, 18-year-old Kevin Lapena [right], is all pumped up as one of the male leads.  Kevin’s from the De La Salle University and a former high school varsity swimmer and now a member of his school’s dragon boat rowing team.
