Bikini Season

This is the bikini season, where contests of men [and women] in the thinnest, tightest, and tackiest swimwear are held from the malls to resorts all around the country. It is then a wonder why one of summer’s annual bikini slugfest is not creating any buzz this year – The Mosismo Bikini Summit. Reader Artistap sent in an info that the deadline for applications has just concluded [last 31 March] and that the organizers are now ready to present the contestants any time soon. Hopefully.

Bo Rivera at the Be Bench Finals

Thomas “Bo” Rivera is one busy model these days. The 20-year-old hottie was the featured hunk of the month of Cosmopolitan [Philippines] Magazine for September 2007. He was also a featured model in the Cosmo Air 69 show. Recently, Bo – who stands 6’2″ and was a finalist at the 2007 Mossimo Bikini Summit, was one of the select few who blazed through the stage in the underwear show at the Be Bench Finals.
