Randolf Stamatelaky used to be one of those contestants in personality searches and bikini contests before hitting it big in mainstream TV commercials. He was then a teener when he joined the first Mossimo Bikini Summit [won by chunky-hunky Carlo Maceda]. And then he joined the annual Circle of 10 Image Model Search, where most teens get discovered for tv and commercial projects. A few years back, he figured in the news for getting kicked out of the artista reality search show of GMA 7, for faking his age. Now, Randolf is reportedly in the cast of the Philippine version of Ugly Betty in ABS-CBN. Which translates to the fact that talent and perseverance and good looks will go a long way in the biz.
