This post is so *NOT* gay.
We all have to thank Ben Chan for re-launching Rafael Rossel’s career via his Bench underwear commercials. Presenting super sexy, super suave Rafael Rossel in Bench Underwear! (Plugging as an excuse to see him and his bulge! LOL!)
After reviewing all the nominated personalities, I have trimmed down the official candidates to 20. I’m sure some of you will react, why and how come some of your favorites did not figure in the list. Come on, guys this is all for fun so please don’t go ballistic. Besides, you have 20 to choose from — and only one will win the title of H.O.T.Y. 2006 — the Gays’ Choice Hunk of the Year! You may now place your vote at the sidebar of this site. I will run the poll for at least 2 weeks to ensure everyone gets a chance to vote. So what are you waiting for? Let your voice be heard! Vote now!
There’s this saying, don’t look for love, it will just come. We Pinoys say, huwag ng hanapin, darating din yan. Yet inspite of this, we do seek for it, we search for it, we really do. In fact this is what Google tells us too, in very objective even mathematical terms, through their nifty tool, Google Trends. Google Trends measure the propensity for a term to be searched, and this can be trended over time, and over geographies.
In previous entries, I highlighted that Pinoys are notorious for being number 1 in Google Trends for having the highest propensity for searching the terms gay sex, masturbation, and cybersex. This time I tried the term love. Here’s what I found.
On December 28, 2006, Kouros 2006, the Search for Gorgeous Filipino Men will be staged at the Metro Bar in Quezon City. The candidates for this year’s competition, totalling 35, have a wide spectrum of looks: boy-next-doors, hunky men, model-types, etcetera. See them all at their official website.

David Eric Poarch, also known as the Coconuter, is a rather handsome Filipino-American guy who left the convenience of American living and settled in a provincial abode somewhere north of Manila. He blogs about this crazy life experiment, which for him is an attempt to look for himself. He says, ” I, a half Filipino half American raised in the US, now will be facing life in a turmoil-infested third world country, and I am doing so willingly. Furthermore, as this trip is a leap of independence and an emphasis of self-sufficiency, I am going there without any family or external support and without any extra money or belongings except what I feel are necessities for survival. What led to this? I kind of know, but itâ€™s hard to explain completely. My instinct tells me my birthplace, the Philippines, is my â€œsafe havenâ€ although in reality going there may prove to be my undoing. I am clouded by visions of â€œstriking goldâ€ in a country where everyone tells me nothing glitters. I am trying to find what it is I am meant to do in life, and even though everyone tells me I am wrong, my heart still tells me that my purpose lies within the Philippines.” Very inspiring.
He posts pretty regularly, including some of his topless photos. Now that got you interested, right? Hahaha!
He-he-he! Now on to the real topic of this post…
Even with a partner/boyfriend, would you still go to bi/disreet/gay chatrooms?
Mark Herras is a product of GMA 7′s Starstruck artista search. Turning only 20 this December, he has pretty much matured from where he was when he won his Ultimate Survivor title. One GMA insiders says technology has done wonders on his skin — well this does the audience good, as we all deserve to see beautiful things. Many tag Mark as the one with a “bad boy” charm. While I personally prefer “good boy” looks like Dennis Trillo (sorry people, Dennis is mine, hehehe!) I do, once in a while, appreciate the other side of the spectrum din naman. So here goes, lovers of bad boys, enjoy Mark Herras!
