The Boys of Dyesebel

Starting tonight on ABS-CBN, we’ll get to see another mermaid series on prime time tv.  The boys who will bare their mighty torsos are Gerald Anderson and

Sam Milby. Will the boys be sexy shirtless all the time in the beach? Will they wear tiny shorts underwater? Will Gerald finally wear tight Speedos? Or Sam – barely out of oblivion – strip down to his boxer briefs? Wishful thinking, actually.

More Merfolk

More sexy shirtless boys, as mermaids, er, mermen in the newest fantasy series of ABS-CBN. Expect Sam Milby [left] and Markki Stroem to show off abs and some skin as they take on underwater folk roles in the prime time series. I am hoping they’ll go beyond the spandex and wear more daring under-the-sea costumes, like these bikini open contestants –

The Other Sam

Is Sam Milby still relevant these days? Is he past his prime? Sam’s in this new prime time soap of ABS-CBN called Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala [literally Just Don’t Go Missing On Me] and the real come-on is that he’s always half-naked in his scenes. Of course, we’re not complaining. 


And so, Sammy does the Hollywood-or-bust schtick just like that. Next month, he’s leaving but he clarifies “not for good.” The good looking 27-year-old actor-singer says he’ll be leaving for a good three months to pursue some tv and movie auditions in the United States. While we wish him the best in whatever he’s doing, we are also led to ask: What could possibly drive him to suddenly drop his fairly successful career here in Manila for a round of cold readings abroad?

Hollywood or Bust

So there. Sam Milby‘s calling it quits [for now] in Philippine showbiz. He’s leaving February next year to pursue his, ironically, American dream. Apparently, he got himself an agent in New York and was promised some casting calls in some shows. Here’s wishing him all the tough luck in the US, so that he may be successful this coming year.

And Fading Away

Well, he had his time. Hordes of fans were screaming. He had endless tv and movie offers. His concerts were all sold out. Now, Sam Milby‘s star is fading away. His recent prime time series was canceled abruptly. The rom-com he did didn’t do well at the box office. And nobody’s even going to his small-venue concerts. What’s next for the heartthrob?
