Mario Eduria a.k.a. Maico Eduria n.k.a. Josh Ivan Morales is 25 years old and a native of Cagayan de Oro City. He was enroled as a third year BS Commerce student at the Liceo de Cagayan [an old and esteemed school and famous for its nursing course in the South] when the male pageants made their call. As a campus figure – he won Mr. University, Maico [as he was known then] was the favorite of the designers in his hometown. Not wanting to limit himself within Cagayan de Oro, he packed his bags and went to Manila.

In Manila, he joined a group called Calendar Boys wherein he appeared in a calendar fully exposed to the elements, hung out to dry. Despite the exposure and the controversy, he was able to enter the then models-only bikini-and-body show, Bodyshots [Reborn]. He lost. He then appeared in various states of undress in gay publications until the movies called. Well, at least one movie called Manila Exposed, a hard porn film shot crudely and locally. Next thing we knew, he is now part of the group called Men of Provoq, a group of song-and-dance guys who tease and tempt in their colorful jockeys. Heck, if he teases and tempts still, I’d rather go watch Manila Exposed instead.
