Still sporting his undies in this part of the world is Luciano Stranghetti
. The 6’2″-tall hunk from Sao Paulo landed a spot in the 2009 Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine’s hot and new bachelors. Prior to arriving in Manila, he was a runner-up in the Mr. Brazil 2008 contest. Twenty-three-year-old Luciano has booked modeling projects for Bench and the Philippine Fashion Week series.
Our hump day boy is a familiar face in bikini competitions: Arbie Silva
. The 5’9″-tall Filipino-Spanish hunk was last seen in his skimpy swimwear at the Hataw Superbodies Bikini Open Year 6, where he finished second runner-up. Prior to that, he flashed his hard on in an indie flick called Lagpas. Now, he’s an underwear catalog model.
Our best bet against the onslaught of fly-in and foreign hunks and models would have to be Marx Topacio
. Tall, dark and handsome Marx is one of the most in-demand male mannequins on the runway, print and commercial ads. Marx has certainly gone a long way from his native Kawit, Cavite and San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite [where he played in the varsity basketball team, the Baycats].
What’s Jason Abalos
up to these days? Posing in his Cotton Club
underwear for one. You have to give it to this guy, despite the non-model type of bod, he’s still boldly hamming up in his tight pair of briefs every time [as an endorser of the local line of undies]. Jason is busy in ABS-CBN soaps and shows doing support roles.
It’s cutie Ian Batherson
in the colors of the season! Except that he’s not wearing any pants, which is good because we get to see his wonderful legs! Did you know that his Whistle
post is the second most viewed feature for the month of December, next to Butt Monday
And, yeah, it really is true. Jakey
hogging the bright lights in his fancy-colored skivvies, outlining whatever there is to show to the whole Bench-Body
tards out there. No upstarts, wannabes and heirs-apparent, this time. Just plain old sexy Jakey
for the holidays.
What?! No tight-briefs-wearing Paulo Avelino
in the initial Bench Body
campaign for the holiday season? Just Jakey
? That seems strange. Well, Jakey
‘s enough, if you ask me. The perpetual, quintessential go-to guy for the near-nekkid posters of the local underwear company. But Paulo
left out of the campaign?!
Okay one more time. Carlos Agassi
‘s career in rap music or tv and movie acting may not be that
successful but he surely has found his true calling as an underwear model
. Carlos shows off his burly, bruising form in the new ad campaigns for Guitar underwear. The 32-year-old hunk – known for his powerfully built figure – is still busy doing bit roles on tv.
If you’re into long-haired, masculine basketball players, then 29-year-old Petron Blaze point guard Alex Cabagnot
might just be your main guy! He’s an underwear model, too, as he joins that Trillo
guy and Borgy
‘s younger brother for Hanford underwear
. He’s hot, if you ask me.
Time was when Joem Bascon was one of the sexiest upstarts in the underwear modeling scene. He was come-hither in those Folded & Hung ads ages ago. Now, Joem, who is
one mighty fine actor, is still an underwear endorser
, although for a different brand.
