Marko Maristela was the male winner in the 2005 Mr. and Ms. Sexy Bodies contest. Prior to that he was in the Mr. and Ms. Bikini International-Philippines pageant, where he competed with the likes of Randolph Dungo, Ramon del Prado and Carlos Concepcion . Apparently he was also one of the male leads [together with Josh Ivan Morales aka Maico Eduria] in the must-see Filipino all-out porn flick Manila Exposed 1. The 6′-tall Marko, who graduated from Lucena City with a Criminology degree and despite the publicity in that movie, still models to this day for Manila’s fashion designers.
