And as quick as that, it’s Friday again! Either you’re stuck in the comfort of your room and thinking of the party night Palace Pool Club can offer you, or you are literally out try’na fix that dress you just bought for a Fri-yay night party. We dare you to take a minute of silence, sit properly and get your eyes and fingers ready, as we serve you our first set of Top 10 Local models that are ABS-olutely worth the stalk and PECS-fertly worth the follow.


KIRST VIRAY (@kurt_viray)


Known for his signature long hair and his evenly tanned skin, Kirst started modelling at a young age, a promdi from Pangasinan who took his luck in the industry. Armed with passion and his light attitude, Kirst was able to land several commercial, print ad and ramp modelling jobs.

Danish-Filipino model, Henrik, is not just a simple model. He finished his degree in Denmark and is pursuing his academic passion in the country as an Engineer. Ladies, you can go gaga over this Danish hunk, as he will not just sweep you off your feet with his thick accent but will wash you ashore with his swimming skills-Oh Poseidon must be so proud!

Another long -haired hunk. You are fully familiar of his face, Tommy has fronted not only countless editorials but he’s one of SM Youth’s main man. This boy-next-door hunk can give you the right amount of charisma, especially when he flashes that to-die-for-smile. Tommy is a Fil-American who started modelling when he first arrived in the country.

What a good combination this guy could be-good looks, great physique and a good educational foundation.  Daniel is just right at the center of his modelling spotlight ready to conquer the scene with his full authority.

MARK AGAS  (@markagasmd)


He went viral and all ‘ye ladies went crazy over his demeanor. It’s as clear as our 20/20 vision that our Ophthalmology resident slash model from Mercator can serve as a good sighting, right? We bet that you, girl, wouldn’t mind getting a repeated Snellen chart examination if he’s the Doctor.



Up and coming hunk from University of Sto. Tomas, Jules is often described as meek and reserved, and we couldn’t agree more. This Architecture student is just so hard to ignore, with his arresting gaze and boy-next-door aura, we are sure that Jules will hit the industry big time.

MICHAEL MARCELO  (@mikkomarcelo)

Tatted and cool, that’s how we’re going to describe, Mikko- as his friends would call him– a student of Enderun and under the wing of IM agency, Miko is a certified dog lover and your go-to cool guy! Check his videos on snapchat and let your heart melt with his funny antics.

YHEEN VALERO  (@boss_yheen)

Not just your typical chinito guy. Yheen is also a member of an all male group  and just like Mark, his photos went viral on social media as a Buko Vendor in Laguna. Regardless of his “part-time job”, we just can’t get enough of this Asian guy.


GIL CUERVA  (@gilcuerva_)


Youngest on the list. Gil is a student from De La Salle University. A happy-go-lucky guy that will simply captivate your attention with his arresting smile! Oh  and before we forgot, he might be the youngest on our list, but this lad will ABS-olutely serve you well!

LUIS HONTIVEROS  (@luishontiverosonly7)

This six footer hunk is a basketball player represented by IM Agency. With his bad boy aura, we are sure that young ladies would be so thrilled to know him better, ey? Don’t be tricked, though. This hunk is such a nice guy in real life.

We will do this hunk-listing every once in a while, so better check back constantly. For now, we are leaving you with these gorgeous men and tell us what you think by sounding off below.
