In 2004, a beefy bikini boy by the name of Marvin Miranda first appeared as one of the contestants in the fleshfest called Ginoong Pilipinas. He didn’t win the top prize then.
Four years after, a 24-year-old Marvin transformed into a lean and hairy contestant in Body Shots, a modeling and bikini contest. He was one of the favorites then in a bumper crop that was eventually topped by Jobo Roa.
In 2011, Marvin Miranda, with a new and better bod and some body parts, represented the Philippines in Manhunt International. He landed within the top 15 in the semifinals.
