Twenty-one year old Lem Pelayo shot to fame in the fresh mint gum commercial set in a moviehouse. He grew up in innercity Manila [Tondo] and is a university student from Lyceum of the Philippines.
His claim to fame so far is starring in the daring straight-to-video Kama Sutra, produced locally. James Mercado, aka Jerwin Mercado, was also tapped as one of the new members of the sexy male group Viva Hotmen, which has apparently disbanded by now.
While in school at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada, 20-year old Alvin came home to visit his father [Filipino, retired Canadian mountie] in Zambales province. He has stayed since then, basking in the bright world of the local modeling scene.
Another Filipino with German ancestry is Hermann Gerhard Weber who was born and raised in the Philippines. He was a Mossimo alum, finishing runner-up to another sculpted god, Jerome Ortiz [from Cologne, Germany]. He studied to be a pilot but ended up in one of the call centers of Makati before joining bikini contests, ramp shows, and fashion commercial assignments.
German-Filipino William Devaughn has been blazing the runway shows, in addition to numerous print and tv advertisements, for several years now. Yet, this top model, who grew up in Bundingen, Germany, never ceases to strike awe with the femmes, with his good mestizo looks and sexy bod. More from this guy soon.
