Kobie Brown: Cute Guy of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Connect

I was watching TV Patrol earlier and they’re starting to reveal the housemates of upcoming Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) “Connect”. I don’t usually watch it, but I always check out the cute guy of each batch like Sam Milby, Gerald Anderson, etc.

This batch of PBB Housemates have Kobie Brown – Ang Charming Striker ng Parañaque, from Manchester, United Kingdom. Definitely a charming guy (there’s always one in every PBB batch) whom I’ll definitely watch.

“Your Home The Series” Premieres December 4, 2020

Ever since the success of 2gether The Series (Thai BL Series), it seems that the Philippines jumped on the bandwagon and is now releasing trailers after trailers of upcoming BL series.

“Your Home The Series” will premiere on December 4, 2020 and is produced by Arcana Studios Inc. It stars Kurt Mendoza, Renz Kieser and Marc David.Take a took at the trailer.

Filipino BL Central on Twitter summarized the plot as “A coming of age story of two boys that are feeling alone and their adventures to find a place they can call home.”

Influencers The Series

Influencers The Series is an upcoming Boys’ Love series from Camp Avenue Studios. The trailer would premiere tomorrow.

The press conference would also happen tomorrow at 4:00 PM on their YouTube channel. Based on the poster on Twitter, this one seems interesting. I hope it would be at par with “Gaya Sa Pelikula” coming from a relatively new (for me) studio..

Official Trailer: “Steelers: The World’s First Gay Rugby Club”

Told through the eyes of an Australian television reporter who moved to the UK to escape depression, we learn that sometimes you can find happiness where you least expect. We follow the journey of 3 characters in the club: the lesbian coach fighting misogyny, even in the gay world. The semi-pro player who spiraled into a depression after his coming out didn't go as planned. And the prop who discovered he was a drag queen through the club. IMDb 

The Kings Cross Steelers are a British rugby team, based in London. Founded in 1995 it was the world's first gay-inclusive rugby union club, and is therefore the oldest such club in the world. Its founding sparked the beginning of a much larger gay inclusive rugby movement which to date includes over 60 gay inclusive rugby clubs across the world. Wikipedia 

I’m surprised that there’s a gay-inclusive rugby union club – and there’s a movie about them. Gays and rugby or other contact sports doesn’t seem to blend in well. But this knowledge proved me wrong. I would love to see this movie.


O-M-G! This kiss is so… lovely!

“Boy Band Love The Series” (Pinoy Boys’ Love)

I missed this one. It’s now on Episode 5 and it’s a Pinoy Boys’ Love (BL) series. It’s called “Boy Band Love The Series” and it’s airing on YouTube.

According to My Drama List, Boyband Love (BBL) is a BL digital series that revolves around LMTLSS (pronounced as limitless), a Pinoy boyband composed of Aiden, Danny, Jamie, and Rico who have one goal in mind – stardom! However, their journey won’t be easy as their personalities clash, and their personal vendettas get in the way.

The series premiered September 19, 2020. It stars Arkin Del Rosario (Aiden), Louie Gabarda (Rico), Gus Villa (Danny), Job Piamonte (Jamie), Luise Gragera (Josh) and more.

I saw some pictures of the actors and they all look gorgeous.

Official Trailer: “My Lockdown Romance” (Pinoy BL Series?)

A few days ago, I send a tweet to Jameson Blake asking if he would consider doing a Pinoy Boys’ Love series. He didn’t see my tweet of course. But today, I saw the trailer of “My Lockdown Romance” and it stars one of my favorite actors – Jameson Blake!

[Edit] I got too excited and didn’t notice that it’s actually a film from Star Cinema. (I was really hoping it’s a BL). The film also stars Joao Constancia and it’s directed by Bobby Bonifacio Jr!

From Jameson Blake on his Twitter account: “Streaming WORLDWIDE beginning November 13 for only 150 pesos on the following CineXpress channels: (, Iwant TFC (, IPTV, Cignal PPV (, and Sky Cable PPV (”

Cute Guy Brent Manalo

I don’t know where exactly I saw the picture of Brent Manalo for the first time (most likely on Twitter) but I find him cute, attractive and charming. His name is Brent Manalo.

Cute guy Brent Manalo captivated by heart by his charming good looks

He appeared as a “karibal” to the character of Khalil Ramos in iWant Original Anthology series “Ampalaya Chronicles Presents Adik” (2020, Mini-Series). Other than that, I have nothing on him. Except that he has an clothing business called Brent Selects (that ships nationwide), he’s a TikToker, a vlogger, marketing student and models for clothing lines.

He modeled for Regatta and Guess. He was featured on Garage’s website. Let me watch his YouTube Q&As to know more about him. By the way, I love how he takes his selfies. It’s not super focus on his face but he leaves a huge space on the upper portion of the picture. Nice style I should say.

I wonder if he also models for a jewelry line or if it’s part of his business Brent Selects.

Latest Gay-Themed Movies 2020

While being vigilant for Super Storm Typhoon #RollyPH to pass Metro Manila, I spend the time looking at the latest gay-themed movies from my primary source -- Gay Dash Torrents Dot Net. I then looked for the summary of these movies from Wikipedia and IMDb and here's what I found out.

Latest Gay Movies November 2020


East Palace, West Palace (1996) aka Behind the Forbidden City. Chinese movie. "...In China, homosexuality isn't illegal, but homosexuals are routinely persecuted by police and arrested for "hooliganism". The film focuses on a young gay writer A-Lan who, being attracted to a young policeman, manages to have himself interrogated for a whole night. His life-story which he tells during the interrogation reflects the general repression of the Chinese society. The policeman's attitude shifts from the initial revulsion to fascination and, finally, to attraction..."

The movie looks great. However, I had enough of gay movies with the theme of persecution. I'm trying to look for more... good vibes gay movies.

East Palace West Palace


Mr. Heart -- 2020 Korean BL. I think I have lots of BL series watching in the past 6+ months of lockdown. This, however, is the movie version.

Friendsgiving (2020) -- protagonists are mainly girls. Not my type

Two Short Films by Marco Berger -- Absent and Plan B by an Argentinian director.

El reloj (2008) -- Is about two teenage boys who are waiting at a bus stop. They talk a bit and find that they know each other from that one double date with their respective girlfriends. Pablo offers Javier a taxi ride to his place and once there, invites him in. After watching television with his cousin, Pablo asks Javier to sleep over. Once in bed, almost naked, they get ready to go to sleep.

Una última voluntad (2007) -- A man awaits his execution by a firing-squad. His last wish before dying is a kiss and there are only men.

The Acrobat (2019) -- drama film made in Canada. The 3rd in a trilogy following Lost Song and Love in the Time of Civil War.

Based on the screenshots, this movie has full nudity like full-blown BJ. It's similar to “Theo & Hugo”.



El cazador (Young Hunter) -- 2020 film. A 15-year-old young man burning with desire to have sex with another man gets involved with a manipulative and exploitative porn plot. (IMDb)

A film by Marco Berger. Looks interesting. I think it's similar to that Brent Corrigan movie. Will download

The Gold Rimmed Glasses -- 1987 Italian drama film starring Rupert Everett. It follows a Jewish student and a homosexual doctor who suffer persecution in Fascist Italy.

Will download. I'm into historical movies involving Jews ala Schindler's List

The Gold Rimmed Glasses


Beach Rats (2017) -- American drama film. Boring

Taxi zum klo (1981 film) -- the film documents gay culture in West Berlin in the brief moment post gay liberation and before the onset of AIDS, around 1980. Wikipedia

Not much into gay movies revolving around the theme of HIV/AIDS. It's been a cliche to equate gay movies to the disease. I want more good vibes gay movie like Love, Simon.

Lagpas (2010 Pinoy film) -- no summary on IMDb. Will download anyway.

Lagpas 2010 movie


Mala Noche (1986 film) -- (also known as Bad Night) is a 1986 American drama film based on Walt Curtis' autobiographical novel. The film was shot in 16 mm with black-and-white at Portland, Oregon. IMDb

More like an artistic kind of movie. Not my type

The Boys in the Band (2020) -- At a birthday party in 1968 New York, a surprise guest and a drunken game leave seven gay friends reckoning with unspoken feelings and buried truths. IMDb

Looks like a romantic or comedy movie. Not much into this type of gay movie.

Anima Ardens -- a dance choreography featuring fully naked men. Not my type

Moffie (2019 drama film) -- Based on André Carl van der Merwe's book, Moffie (a derogatory Afrikaans term for a gay man) follows the story of Nicholas van der Swart: from a very young age, he realizes he is different. Try as he may, he cannot live up to the macho image expected of him by his family, by his heritage. At the age of 19 he is conscripted into the South African army and finds his every sensibility offended by a system close to its demise, and yet still in full force. Set during the South African border war against communism, this is a long overdue story about the emotional and physical suffering endured by countless young men. IMDb

Looks interesting ala Brokeback Mountain. Downloading right now.

Partners (1982) -- A straight police detective is unnerved when ordered to go undercover with a gay police clerk, as a couple, to solve a series of murders in the gay community. IMDb

Looks like a romantic comedy (rom com) to me. Not my type

Dry Wind (2020) -- The area around Catalan in Brazil's state of Goiás is dry, very dry. Sandro's life here is somewhat monotonous. He works in a fertilizer factory and divides his days between the city club, work, soccer with friends and city parties. He has a purely sexual relationship with his colleague Ricardo. He always seems to be a bit of an outsider, not comfortable in his own skin, not really belonging. When Maicon, a man straight out of a Tom of Finland illustration, shows up in their small town and flirts with Ricardo, his burgeoning feelings of jealousy set a change in motion. IMDb

Based on the screenshots, it's more of club-scened movie. It has BJ scenes, in all its glory. Not my type

No Hard Feelings (German: Futur Drei) is a German drama film, directed by Faraz Shariat and released in 2020. The film stars Benjamin Radjaipour as Parvis, a confidently out but immature gay young man of Iranian descent living in Germany, who commits a minor criminal infraction and is sentenced to perform community service at a refugee detention centre, where he falls in love with new immigrant Amon (Eidin Jalali). Wikipedia 

No offense to my feminine-type, fellow members of the LGBTQIA+ community, but I'm not into movies where the protagonist is a bit... flamboyant.



Detroit Evolution (2020 TV movie) -- It's been one year since Markus freed the androids of Detroit. The most advanced android ever created, Nines, has evolved past his initial programming as a ruthless hunter, and now protects the city as a DPD detective. But as new crimes and dangers start to threaten RK900 himself, he must also juggle his growing fondness for his partner, Detective Gavin Reed, and navigate everything that they mean to one another. IMDb

Looks interesting. I like gay movies where the characters are straight-acting (like Brokeback Mountain). This movie looks interesting.

Who’s That Latest Bingo Guy?

Have you guys seen the latest Bingo commercial? Anyone know the name of the #GorgeousPinoy guy playing the role of Jiro?

Calling Jiro
Who’s the actor playing Jiro?

Ron Martin Angeles of “Ben X Jim”

Ron Martin Angeles is cast as Olan -- the charming / romantic delivery driver in the Pinoy Boys' Love (BL) series "Ben X Jim" starring Jerome Ponce and Teejay Marquez.

Ron Angeles 2

Will the character of Ben end up with his best friend Jim or the delivery driver Olan? That’s the question

In Episode 3, Olan really shined. His lines are cheesy, and his smile is gorgeous. I'm guessing that there will be a competition between Olan and Jim (Jerome Ponce) in the coming episodes.

For now, let's focus on the guy behind the character of Olan. I checked his Instagram and he's really cute. He seems to be working at Bro's Kitchen.

He's also currently promoting a Facebook event called Ginoong Quarantino 2020 (The King of ECQ Online Search). Ronald "Ron" Angeles is 21 years old by the way and hails from San Juan City.

Ron Martin Angeles also appeared in Bidaman of Showtime. He's also the grand winner of Mr. Sta. Lucia Generation East Model Search 2018. His MyDramaList profile list him as part of upcoming Pinoy BL Series "Oh, Mando!" starring Kokoy de Santos and Alex Diaz.

Good luck to his endeavors and hopefully he'll get more projects. I'm beginning to love his character on "Ben X Jim".

I think I’ll install BIGO Live just so I can follow Ron Martin Angeles

Cute Guy Yasser Marta

I was watching 24 Oras earlier when I saw this cute guy on a Zoom meeting with the cast of “Bilangin Ang Bituin Sa Langit” (TV Series). I found out his name is Yasser Marta and he plays the role of Anselmo "Jun" Santos Jr.

Yasser Marta


I searched for his Instagram and Facebook page and he’s indeed photogenic. His FB page simply describes himself as an actor. His Instagram only gives the quote “Live life spontaneously” and a contact number (to his manager I guess).

I also learned he’s the grand winner of the Eat Bulaga contest “Spogify”. He’s half Pinoy and half Portuguese. He’s also a member of GMA boyband group “One Up” along with Ralf King, Brent Valdez, Kevin Sagra, Jay Arcilla, Dave Bornea, Nikki Co, Prince Clemente, Joemarie Nielsen, and Arjan Jimenez. Source

Yasser Marta is 24 years old and studies at San Benildo, Antipolo City. He’s into singing, dancing, motor, car, and basketball. He idolizes Kobe Bryant, Leonardo di Caprio, and Dingdong Dantes. He was born and grew up in Saudi Arabia and is a Muslim. He started modelling in the small country of Monaco. Source

Here are some of the pictures of Yasser Marta from his Facebook account.

Man of the Hour: Jeff Ortega

Joseph Francisco Ortega a.k.a. Jeff Ortega, made headlines and trended on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. He’s currently the Department of Tourism - Director for Region 1 and was previously the Department of Tourism - Director for Region 4A. He’s also an entrepreneur and the boyfriend of actress Jasmine Curtis-Smith.

Well, the guy is good-looking. However, no amount of good looks could hide the fact that he’s a DDS and supporter of Bong-Bong Marcos. In fact, he introduced the latter as the Vice President of the Philippines in a recent event.

I sure hope that he gets suspended for his sedition against the real Vice President of the Philippines. For now, let’s just appreciate how good looking Jeff Ortega is. But still despicable.
