Okay, one more image of Enzo Pineda in tight skivvies. Of course, he has big balls! Or maybe an extra one. It doesn’t matter, really. What’s important is that he’s cocky enough to wear skimpy undergarments in public sans qualms and scruples. Happy weekend everyone!
Arguably the busiest male model in town is Jiro Shirakawa. His showbiz career might have gone pfft but modeling jobs keep coming his way. Aside from his underwear endorsement for a direct-selling company, he appears in almost every runway show and TV commercial in town. His mug also shows up in print ads for major companies.
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.
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?!
