Rico’s Progress

In 2007, then 23-year-old Alexander Rico from Baguio City won the Mr. Talent prize at the Mr. World-Philippines contest, a national pageant held to select the country’s representative to the Mr. World competition in China. In 2008, the 5’10”-tall model busied himself with work as a stylist and makeup artist. He did the makeup of Johnron Tanada and that Izon guy in the movie Love Birds. In 2009, he decided to hit the gym and do the roids. In 2010, he won the year’s Ginoong Pilipinas national pageant – primped, primed and pumped up. Oh wait, that’s just my dope. The national finals is yet to be held tomorrow, 26 May 2010 at the Metro Bar along West Avenue, Quezon City.

  9. Ba’t tayong mga bakla homophobic sa katulad natin? So what if he’s gay??!!? Bakla rin naman kayo ah!!!!! Patay na patay kayo sa straight pineperahan lang naman kayo’t hindi p’wedeng mahalin. Gay guys can love fellow men, straights can’t. Hello?!?!? Gumising na kayo mga bading!

  10. this is me again. ako din yung before na nag comment na dito talaga sa pilipinas, napakaraming hang ups ng mga bading. and yes, totoo yung sinabi ng isa dyan na dito sa pilipinas, ang mga bading, galit sa kapwa bading nya. ang hanap straight. totoo yun, pag pumatol sayo ang straight and di ka pineperahan, di na straight yun. mahirap ba intindihin yun? ano, sasabihin niya bi siya? sinong niloko nya? ang nagsasabing bi sila, bading din yun. kaya tayo kinukutsa ng lipunan, whether we do it impliedly or not, whether we will admit it or not, but there is a significant relation to why we are not accepted by society? why? eh mismo among our ranks, we practice discrimination. now tell me if i am not telling the truth.

  11. PAMINTANG BUO. BELL PEPPER.

    ICKYNESS TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL ITICH. warning sisters, can cause death by asphyxiation.

  12. To anonymous May 26, 2010 5:49 PM, so ate, ikaw ba yang tinutukoy mo? dapat pala pag lalabas ka, mag lagay ka ng karatula sa leeg mo ha…na wag lalapit sayo ang mga bading na magkakakursunada sayo kasi baka mamatay sila pagnadikit sayo. isa ka palang lason.

    to all homophobic gays out there (gosh, what a term), do you actually tell guys who would approach you and shows signs of interests at you to “back off, i am gay myself, do you want to get poisoned?” terribly pathetic if you ask me, don’t you think so? para lang may masabi, sarili mo na pala ang siniraan mo.
