Zanjoe Marudo tv ad launched today

by: rddantes May 12, 2007 | Add Comment |

If my sources in the ad agency are quite precise with the dope, Zanjoe Marudo’s tv commercial will be released today, synchronically in all tv stations. It’s a soda commercial for this lanky 24-year old underwear-model-turned-comedian. Zanjoe Marudo, who shot to fame in Big Brother [Celebrity Edition] has a tremendous following among the Great Unwashed. Probably this could be due to the fact that they have identified or empathized with his oafish and unpolished ways [inside the Big Brother house, his boorish manners often got Big Brother’s ire and attention]. Regardless of such, Zanjoe Marudo has gone a long way from a struggling model to an actor and product endorser.

101 ways to wear a necktie [plus JC Cuyson]

by: rddantes | 1 Comment |

The last time I saw photos of a naked man with a necktie was that of model-turned-designer Derick Hibaler way back in the late 90s. Back then, however, there were no little hairs or inner or outer groin parts peeking out. JC Cuyson, model above, is a part-time model and a student. He is a recent pinup boy of Valentino magazine. Too bad he is wearing one of those neckties reminiscent of the late 70s – shiny-satiny and light-colored polyester 3″ ties, and not the skinny and narrow 1.5″ ties today. It would have been a little less … say, conservative.

Ginoong Pilipinas tonight!

[Kish McBride]
Tonight will be the Finals of the Ginoong Pilipinas 2007 at the Clamshell 2 PTA Tent, Intramuros, Manila. Hataw Superbodies Bikini Open winner Kish McBride [representing Metro Manila] is drummed up as the next winner, judging from the exposures he’s been getting in the contest [aside from the fact that he’s one of the few gorgeous candidates in said annual search]. But then again, he deserves to win rightfully, if you ask me, while looking at this year’s bumper crop, rather mishmash of wannabe models, dancers and provincial-lads-promised-instant-fame candidates.

l-r: Randy del Rosario [San Juan City], Jachin Delovieres [Pangasinan]
and Harold Oide [Baguio City]

l-r: John Almorfe [Pasig City, Denver Olivares [Cavite]
and Patrick Rivera [San Juan City]

Another most-likely-to-win is Jachin Delovieres of Pangasinan, which province has produced most winners in the annual contest. The other candidates worth noting are those featured above, who might just pull a big surprise over the cocksure Kish McBride. However, as in the past, knowing how screwy the judging can get, any candidate – including los candidatos feos – might take home the title. Otherwise, the all-too happy judges will take them home.

The jewel of my heart has come, rosy with the hues of love.

Bullah Shah, Punjabi poet

Bob Dhaliwal, 20 years old and 5’10”-tall was a standout candidate in the Hataw Superbodies Bikini Open held recently. Born and raised in Punjab, India [he only arrived in Manila at the start of his university education], Bob is graduating this year with a degree in Business Management at the Far Eastern University. This goodlooking Punjabi is quite a refreshing sight, indeed.

Chunky: Clark Garcia

Twenty-nine year old Clark Señara otherwise known then as Clark Garcia, was formerly Mr. Cagayan de Oro 1998, Mr. Millennium 1998 and Mr. Centennial 1998. Eight years ago, he was a favorite gay mag cover and pinup boy, gamely hamming it up with just a maritime rope to cover himself. The [hazel] brown-eyed, 5’10” chunk is now a singer, actually a boyband member that performs for RJTv, that 70s time-warped TV station with quirky, entertaining and funny-without-meaning-to shows. He is also under the management of Cosmopolitan Promotions and Casting Agency. Last seen, Clark has now gained a few kilos unlike his former frame.

Rafael Rosell to host new reality show for celebs

Rafael Quimpo Rosell IV, the 25-year-old actor and Bench underwear model who was born and raised in Norway [to Filipino parents], will be the new host of the reality show Hollywood Dreams, now renamed as American Dream. The show, which aims to send one Filipino celeb to Hollywood with his/her own SAG card, will also be seen now in GMA 7’s sister station – QTV 11. Despite being identified with a rival network [ABS-CBN] where he also plays a major role in a fanta-series called Rounin, Rafael was allowed by his home studio to host the new edition of the reality show [he is an alum from the first season] in a rival network.

Thank you, Anton, it was a good ride.

I don’t know how they did it, but they [photos, stylists, movie crew] were able to put Anton Bernardo on top of a horse in a Batangas beach, for promotional photos of the erstwhile top sexy actor’s movie Red Diaries in 2001. It was a lasting image – proud Anton on top of a robust steed, with all his little hairs in the nether regions showing. Of course, they don’t make theatrical photos now such as this one. That’s why we have to thank Anton, for such dashing and daring move. It was a good ride, thank you.

Dutch-Filipino Stunner: Alec van Dierendonck

by: rddantes | 3 Comments |

Alec van Dierendonck was born and raised in the Netherlands [Fact: The Netherlands is the European part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands which consists of the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles, and Aruba. The Netherlands is often called Holland. This is incorrect as the provinces of North and South Holland in the western Netherlands are only two of the country’s twelve provinces]. In 1996, then 16-year old Alec, who is half-Filipino and half-Dutch, moved to the Philippines for good. He first burst into the modeling world in 2004 when he joined the Mossimo Bikini Summit [won by Marco Grazzini] and the MTV Fashionista Model Search [won by Anthony Madden, Rocky Salumbides and AJ Winkler]. At present, he is under the management of CalCarrie’s Manila and Andrew’s Models [Kuala Lumpur]. At the recent Philippine Fashion Week [see photos above], this 6’3″-tall model, who is known for his professionalism and seriousness at work, still elicited a lot of silent sighs from the audience.

Richard Guebar’s Back!

by: rddantes | Add Comment |

Richard Guebar is back in the scene. For a time he was a constant fixture in male modeling contests and bikini open searches until he disappeared from the limelight. Richard Guebar then got bit roles on tv series, mostly with GMA 7. He apparently did an xxx-rated flick released exclusively in Europe. Now, he is making the rounds of magazines as a sexy pinup boy.
