Standing Tall

He’s not new in the Bench Body underwear business as he claims. Seven years ago, Rocco Nacino wanted to catch the attention of the owner of the local clothing company by appearing for the Cosmopolitan 2010 shoot in boxer briefs. He was in better (and younger) form then, but these days, he’s just as excited to walk and appear in his undies. Finally.

Phone Cam Pics

Here we go again. Guys with iPhones (or Android phones). 
These are the boys who take pictures of themselves shirtless.
Most are famous in their own showbiz way. Except one notorious anonymous guy who loves
the naked selfie too much.

Don’t mind the skewed tiles and impossible waistline, 
the notorious yet anonymous guy is a hottie anyways.

Part Two

Now that the sensational prime time soap of GMA, My Husband’s Lover has ended, many are still itching for another pair, a handsome-boys tandem to portray happy but ill-fated lovers on screen. In the mold of TomDen – Dennis Trillo and Tom Rodriguez, of course.
 Maybe a Jake CuencaPaulo Avelino partnership? They do well on tv, plus they have no qualms with the butt-baring, bulge-brandishing scenes, thanks to their experience modeling underwear for local brand Bench Body. Portmanteau: PauJake or Jakulo

How about GMA performers, Enzo Pineda and Rocco Nacino as a couple? They can and will do anything for that elusive thing called fame.  Portmanteau: EnCo or RoNzo
Oh, the boys have grown! Arron Villaflor and Sam Concepcion, erstwhile lanky-sissy teens have all emerged from baby fat. Perhaps they can be a duo on tv, kissing and making out. Portmanteau: SamRon
 Or Piolo Pascual and Coco Martin? They will have to do the adult version, of the hopeless and angst-ridden romance variety. With lots of physical and intimate contact, of course. Perfect for late prime time.  Portmanteau: PioCo or CoPio  

 Teejay Marquez and Zuher Bautista for the TeeHer love team [to the chagrin of you-know-who]? Why not? It will be a launching of sorts. But then again, I’m digressing. Silly me.


Is Rocco Nacino finally dropping his pants for the much-awaited Bench underwear show in July? The future Bench Body exhibitionist is most likely donning the skimpy underthings of the local brand in the coming show, now that he has declared in past photo shoots that he’s not coy and bashful after all. Bring it on!


Are these boys the future of Philippine television [and the movies]? Paulo Avelino [right], after leaving GMA for rival network ABS-CBN has been swamped with work lately. The new favorite of local brand Bench Body is on a prime time show, and his popularity’s rising. On the other side, Rocco Nacino has also his hands full with GMA’s shows and afternoon soaps. He’s slated to do an epic series this year.


Oh, so you want prissy. No naming names, just the goody, genteel posts? Let’s see, how about Aljur Abrenica and Rocco Nacino? Two of GMA’s best boys, bets for future leading manhood and stardom. But wait, these boys aren’t exactly to the manner born. Just ordinary boys with dark, bad skin taken from the waysides as they auditioned for reality shows, eventually polished for substantial showbiz compliance. So there! Proper connections, right amount of money and you can have Aljur and Rocco. No, I can’t do prissy.
