Idol: Markki Strøm

Rewind to August 2006: The Philippine Idol auditions were underway and the judges were in awe at a tall and handsome young man from an international school. He can sing a mean power ballad and he was through to the next round. Midway through the Theater Round [equivalent to the Hollywood Week of its American counterpart], the young man, in tears, tells the judges that he’s not going through the process anymore as he has to go to school in Switzerland – at the Glion Institute of Higher Education in Bulle, to be exact. The judges were tsktsking in disappointment for surely they could have found a star in this charismatic 19-year-old singer.
Fast forward, last Sunday of May 2009: The Bench Fashion Show was being staged at the SMX Convention Center and people were second-guessing the identity of this tall cutie in fully-packed mulberry briefs. It’s none other than the crying kid at Philippine Idol approximately 3 years ago – Markki Strøm, now 22 years old and back on local shores to pursue his dream of being a singer and an actor [he’s a triathlete, too]. Well, of course, Bench noticed the fine mestizo features of this Fil-Norwegian lad and cast him in its major show. Markki’s star is definitely getting brighter from now on.

  1. too many sexy men, and too little time…he’s uber hot!!! he has clean wholesome features, sarap nya i-hug, and his bulge, soooo delicioso! hope he gets noticed…

  2. nice physique…though the bulge is more like photoshopped…otherwise..hes got a mighty monster literally…anyhow keep it up!!!!

  3. Oh wow. I remember Philippine Idol very well. Marky did a very good version of Anak, altho may pagka-Gary V ng konti. He was geeky then, tall and lanky, and cute with his glasses on. He surely has metamorphosed into something really hot.
    Will he be too old for Starstruck later this year? He’s a good singer and dancer, at ok naman siya mag-Tagalog. Sa acting kaya? iboboto ko siya for sure.

  4. he is super hot…i love his body……..very malaman sarap yakapin at himas himasin……he definitely stood out at the bevy of good looking guys there

  5. It looks like his undies were stuffed… if he really is big it would be a VPL not a “labacara” type bukol…

  6. my cousin who graduated from glion knows him. she said markki has a very pretty girlfriend but has a reputation of being a playboy. i’ve seen his pictures in my cousin’s account in fb and he is much better looking in those pictures than in this one.crush ko ito talaga. btw, girl po ako. hehehe.but i like hot boys.

  7. speaking of stuffing, i’ve noticed na lately yung mga bench models eh ang hilig magpalaman na ng mga keme sa underwear. so disappointing. take for instance, jon avila. if you want to see him in his “natural” state, see the dvd of bench shows before he was famous. ngayon, todo padding na ang lolo mo. i miss genuine VPL. 🙁 bench hear us out!

  8. Yes, yes, the face isn’t so good-looking, but the bod is great. I’m sure whoever says he looks better in person is right. Yes, I’ll take him anytime.

    To Anonymous (June 2, 2009 2:19 PM), what is VPL?

  9. a photographer friend told me nilalagyan daw ng labakara ang front para hindi masyadong bakat ang shape ni manoy. pag kalakihan kasi ang sa guy, medyo masagwa tignan pag underwear ang minomodel. so i suppose ganon din ang sa kanya. nagkataon lang na hindi inayos ang paglagay ng labakara kaya halatang-halata

  10. WOW ANG LAKAS NG SEX APPEAL

    KAHIT HINDI KAGWAPUHAN

    JUS KO HIHIMATAYIN AKO SA KAMANDAG

    NIYA..!!!!!!!!!

    AT ANG BUKOL NIYA JUS KU..

    ANG SARAP PISAIN. HANGANG MASIRITAN

    KA NG KANYANG MALACHLOROX NA KATAS

    HOT HOT HOT.

    GRABE KALOKA!

  11. VPL = “visible penis line” aka “felix bakat”

    applicable din yan sa girls (at heto yata ang orig meaning) pero the meaning changes to “visible panty line”.

  12. VPL = Visible Penis Line

    Sa girls naman pag bumabakat ang vajayjay, it is called a “Camel Toe”
