Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani as photographed by friend Hideo Muraoka
We all know that Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani is in the thick of preparations for Mr. World 2016
. He is scheduled to leave for Southport, UK first week of July to join other candidates in the search for the World’s Most Desirable Man.
In the meantime, check out his shots taken by fellow model and hunky Brapanese Hideo Muraoka (who is going into photography) in addition to the recently-uploaded videos he made on how to develop those fine abs while staying at home.

The Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash 2012 was successfully staged last night at the World Trade Center. Hot male specimens – both celebrities and models alike – took to the stage and elicited endless shrieks and applause from the audience made up of adoring females and clapping gay men. While most of them were disappointed that Paulo Avelino was a no-show (the guy is in the U.S. for some ABS-CBN shows), the rest more than made up for the absence. And how!
Here are some photo grids from the event.

Paulo Avelino, main man for Cosmo Bachelor Bash 2012
After Bench Universe last week, the Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash 2012 will take centerstage tonight at the World Trade Center. The only difference is that only the hottest men this side of the planet will walk the ramp in their sexy outfits.
Names like Paulo Avelino, Alden Richards, Mikael Daez, Daniel Matsunaga, Hideo Muraoka, JM de Guzman, Fabio Ide, the Semerad Twins, and a lot more will sizzle and set the ramp on fire as they parade in different stages of undress.
So if you’ve got the tickets to tonight’s event, then consider yourself very lucky! 😉
Calling out all the beautiful people out there!
Mercator Artist & Model Management Inc.
Lou Munoz of Mercator Models
will be holding an Open Day Go-See
for prospective models on September 15, 2012 (a Saturday). Ready to test the waters and see if you’ve got what it takes to be groomed as the next face and body to grace important TVCs/print ads and the pages of glossy fashion magazines or glide your way to the ramp of high-profile fashion events? Then spruce yourself up and present yourself on the appointed date, put your best foot forward and brim with as much confidence to get noticed. Height will definitely be a factor for consideration, but a photographic face and body will have just as much weight.

You can follow the footsteps of some of Mercator’s more popular models such as Carlo Sawit (of McDonald’s ‘Hooray for Today” TVC), Angelo Cacciatore (of Nescafe’ and other TVCs), Vanessa Matsunaga (of “Downy Passion” and countless others) and many more. Of course, you could also become the next hunk to experience back-to-back bookings for fashion assignments like Hideo Muraoka (for SM) or Akihiro Sato. And better yet, you might even be handpicked for training in cooperation with Aces & Queens as one of its bets for the country’s most prestigious beauty pageant, that is the Binibining Pilipinas.

Best Model Management Award winner Jonas Gaffud of Mercator (2nd from left) with some of his famous wards (L-R) Venus Raj, Queenie Rehman and Shamcey Supsup
As I have told Mercator head Jonas Gaffud in my congratulatory message to him last Saturday, he planted good seeds to insure a bountiful harvest. Now is the time to reap the rewards for a job well done.
Last Friday night, he was recognized at the Philippine Fashion Ball as the winner of Best Model Management Award – a precious honor symbolic of his outstanding efforts in running an artist and model management company that has grown in leaps and bounds during the past eight years. Popular for bringing us beauty queens (Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, Janine Tugonon and Queenie Rehman to name some) we all love and adore (via Aces & Queens), he extended his reach to the handling of some of the country’s top-notch fashion and commercial models such as Brapanese hunks Hideo Muraoka, Daniel Matsunaga, Akihiro Sato & Fabio Ide. He also continued his foray to the world of showbiz when he started landing one contract after another for his wards who are now showbiz personalities like JC Tiuseco, Mikael Daez, Benjamin Alves, Ervic Vijandre, Kerbie Zamora, Lemuelle Pelayo and the upcoming Artista Academy hopeful Benjo Leoncio.
The guy is simply unstoppable. And to think that nearly a decade ago, all of these were but dreams waiting to happen. I remember our time together when Mabuhay Beauties was still an active pageant-loving group. It never crossed our minds that he will someday be looked up to as the famous beauty and talent connoisseur he is right now. 2004 was his first turning point because that was the year Mercator Artist and Model Management was born. The rest is continuously running history.
And so, I doff my hat to the one and only Jonas Gaffud. May you continue to bring us more world-class beauty queens, more gorgeous Film/TV idols and more fierce models on the runway and glossy pages of fashion magazines. My heartfelt congratulations once more!
