To J. – How about Janvier, Is he Irish enough?

Hey J., does he look Irish enough? Janvier Daily, 22 years old and a student of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Baguio, became an instant gay-folk sensation when he took on the male lead role in the kooky musical, ZsaZsa Zaturnnah. Janvier claims to be half-Irish [his father is from Eire], but he was born here – in Cabuyao, Laguna before moving up to Baguio City. Admittedly, he has fine Filipino features – dark, sort of nigrescent and a knockout, if you ask me. Surely, not all Irish are Caucasoid. If I remember correctly, there is predominantly a ‘Black Irish’ , a dark-skinned, dark-eyed, dark-haired Irish phenotype created by the infusion of Spanish blood [through countryside invasions]. And then there’s the ‘Black Irish’ of the British West Indies, the mixed-blood offspring of 17th century Irish emigrants and African slaves who live on the island of Montserrat, known also as the “Emerald Isle of the Caribbean.” So, how about it, J.? Methinks, despite any claims of progeny or race, Janvier Daily is one beautiful Filipino specimen. You must agree with me on that.

Weekend Scorcher: Will Sandejas

Will Sandejas, Kristian Tanfelix in the real world, is 23 years old and a fixture at bikini contests before joining showbiz. He dusky looker from Laguna finished a special course for caregivers and initially intended to work abroad until he can no longer ignore the lure of the kleig lights.

Will Sandejas was first runner-up at the Metro Bar Bikini Open and the winner of Fashion Quest 2006 held at the Pearl of Manila Hotel. Then he joined Upstyle Modeling Agency’s Style Eyecatchers Model Search, where he was declared as a winner in one of the editions of said search. Next came the movies.

Will, who was once the lead vocalist of Replay Band, was one of the naked miners [yes, miners] in the indie exploitation film Troika, which also came up with a limited edition magazine from which the images above were taken. He was last seen in another gay bare-for-all flick called Sikil with the boyish Ken Escudero [search previous posts].

Hoo-Yeah! Michael!

To complement the post of UPH [see Michael-Hoo-Majestic-Chinito ] here are far more far-out photos of Michael Hoo from the promo bookazine Troika. It seems that this cute Chinese mestizo, who is only 23 years old [and yes UPH, he does look old for his age but he is cute anyways], is in a hurry for his 15 minutes of fame. The 6′-tall Tarlac province native has been joining teen bikini competitions of late. In any case, he does seem to hold some promise in the looks and brawn department, and the future looks sunshine-y for this guy.
