Check out Mr. Cebu 2008

To lighten up the mood after that very serious previous post (which is still important—go read it!), I'd like to share with you Mr. Cebu 2008, something I stumbled onto while blog surfing. This is apparently the first ever male pageant in Cebu and the awarding night will be on October 10 at the Waterfront Hotel. The program will be hosted by Ms. Angel Aquino. It seems that Cebu is envious of their neighbor's Hari ng Negros pageant. Hehehe. :-)

Well, I must say that the official website is very crappy. And the contestants? Ho-hum for the most part. In comparison, there are a lot more eye candy in this year's Hari ng Negros competition. Nevertheless, one contestant in Mr. Cebu 2008 stood out for me in particular and he is Bassanio Causin, Jr. He is a 20-year-old student/farmer from Ronda, Cebu, and a couple of his pictures taken from the website are shown below. He's a real hottie and a cutie to boot, don't you agree? (I really have this thing for semikal dudes.) Another guy that I like among the contestants is Joseph Christian Hornido. Joseph's swimwear pics are quite nice.

Of course, we all have our own particular tastes in men. So I'd like for you to scope out the contestants and tell us which of the Mr. Cebu aspirants do you like best. (And why. Hehehe.) :-)

oks lang contestants sa mr cebu pero haring negros is a class all by itself.ibang iba talaga hari ng negros. bilib ako sa mga hari ng negros. mr cebu may gatas pa sa labi. it will take a long time for mr cebu to reach the caliber of negros. sana hindi chaka mr cebu show. pa james bond james bond pa! they should promote the culture of cebu like hari ng negros promotes negros always. opinion ko na lang. pasensya lang.

Remy, well, this is the first time Cebu will hold such a contest so it's natural that it won't be as glamorous as Negros' competition.

Mugen, taste pagdating sa semikal guys? :)

John, well I hope that they can make it better next year. The website for one thing is quite bad.

Joseph Hornido is this year's Hari ng Negros First Runner Up. Another HNN alumnus who is a Mr Cebu contestant is JM Contreras, who was the 2nd runner up in 2006.

Hari ng Negros is indeed big that we can't help to think that the inception of Mr Cebu is an HNN inspiration. I think they aim to take a different path (promote culture) that's why their theme is a bit different.

He is really cute, i agree. :)

Mugen, I have a small thing for bad-boy-looking guys as well. :-)

Byron, I thought that Mr. Hornido looked familiar. Hehehe. So does that mean those two guys are both Negrenses and Cebuanos?

Kai and Joaqui, puwede kaya siya i-take home? Hehehehe.

From its theme Mr. Cebu is going to be a verile show of manhood compared to the mardigra production of Hari ng Negros which I find girlish. This is just my opinion.
