At the recent Bodyheat Model Search 2007, sponsored by the avant-garde designer group, Fashion Artists Foundation, one mestizoid stood out among the batch of contestants in the pre-pageant activities. Bikini contest spectators thought that the tall 25-year old fresh model from Quezon City, Joaquin Casado would eventually walk off with the title in the summer’s last bikini pageant. Unfortunately, he finished first runner-up to a more experienced model Marco Odejar.

What is Mark Cyril doing now?

by: rddantes | Add Comment |

This exotic dancer from Gigolo Bar was known as Mark Cyril . He was one of the featured contestants in the first edition of Hunks in Motion, an annual contest of male strippers in the metro. Although he didn’t get the top plum [won by Paul Guesande], Mark Cyril went on to supastah status in Gigolo bar because of his height and looks. Yet, at the time he was working in the bar, he was also studying at the Centro Escolar University taking up BS Tourism, thus the don’t-take-me-home policy for the kid.

Champ: Aaron Canlas

Aaron Canlas was one of the top 6 semi-finalists in the recently-concluded Mossimo Bikini Summit. He was also the winner in the Style Eyecatchers Model Search Leg 6 edition. As winner of that leg, he gets to compete in the Grand Finals which will be held on August 11, 2007. This early, Aaron Canlas has been flagged as winner-most-likely in the innovative model search, due to his height, bone structure, and eloquence [he, reportedly, was born and raised in the Old Dominion State, Virginia].

Missing Paul Guesande

by: rddantes June 22, 2007 | 1 Comment |

Paul Guesande was the, uh, premier danseur during his era. He was de facto credited for the dance moves of current-time macho dancers in the gay bars, which moves involve more masculine and dynamic dance steps, whether using prescribed or improvised spins and gestures. Prior to that, the dancers in the bars were doing the slow seductive strip show, akin to slithering snakes. As the life-span of bump-and-grinders is rather short, Paul Guesande, who was getting up in years, has since retired. Distressingly missed, Paul Guesande has faded into the quiet life.

Another Chinito delight!

Aaah, the appeal of chinky-eyed big boys! To those who are awfully partial to Chinese-looking guys with great pecs, washboard abs and a bubblebutt, here’s Carssie Perez Canlas. The boy with the unique girl’s name was born in Arayat, Pampanga province but he grew up in Taytay, Rizal. His claim to fame was winning the Mr. Taytay 2005 title.

Dicks-A-Day: Jack and Jay

Jack Gabaisen [left] and Jay Trias were part of the calendar boy-group ingeniously called Naked Hunks of the Philippines. They were one of the better-looking “models” in the group, which did the rounds then of sing-along and gay bars promoting their 2005 calendar. Although the group had a mild feverish success, they eventually disbanded and no 2006 calendar was put up. While Jack Gabaisen went on to appear as a bit player in the critically-panned Twilight Dancers flick, Jay Trias vanished into oblivion.
