Nicknamed as the “Drama King of GMA Network,” 35-year-old Dennis was part of the ABS-CBN Star Circle batch 10 circa 2001. However, he transferred to GMA and has dominated the small screen since in leading roles in Etheria, Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan, and Gagambino. In 2013, he took on the controversial role of architect Eric del Mundo in the groundbreaking and Emmy-nominated gay-themed TV show My Husband’s Lover. To date, Dennis has reaped 17 awards from various film and TV award-giving bodies.

Dennis is currently gearing up for the upcoming fantasy series Mulawin vs. Ravena, where he will have a lead role. Dennis sweats it out by working out in a gym for at least two hours twice a week, and does kettlebell training on his idle time. On weekends, he goes mountain biking. He sticks to a healthy diet of vegetables, fish, chicken, and brown rice.

Earning a spot in tenth place is Filipino-Swiss race car driver Marlon Stockinger. He may be famous for being Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s boyfriend, but he has proven himself in the racing arena, too.

In 2006, he won first place in the Asian Karting Open Championship - Formula 125 Senior Open and Rotax Max Senior. He has also won titles from Formula BMW Pacific 2008 Championships, the Senior Rotax Max World Finals 2007, and Philippine Shell Super Karting Series 2002. But his biggest achievement to date is his win at the Monaco leg of the 2012 Grand Prix 3, which made him the first Filipino race car driver to win in a European race. After driving for the Status GP team, he joined the Lotus F1 team as a junior team driver in 2013.

Marlon keeps his body ready for the race tracks by biking around his neighborhood. He plays football, basketball, and has even joined triathlons. He goes for lean protein like chicken or fish. He also limits his carb intake, reaching instead for brown rice.




9. Derek Ramsay, Joem Bascon

With his ruggedly handsome looks and rock-solid abs, it’s not hard to see why Derek Ramsay is one of the most bankable leading men in the industry today. The 40-year-old Filipino-British heartthrob is a hall of famer in Cosmo’s list of hot hunks, has bagged acting awards, and lives an athletic lifestyle to boot.

Starting out as an MTV VJ and model, Derek transitioned to hosting then acting. After starring in ABS-CBN TV shows, he played the leading man in the box office hit No Other Woman, opposite Anne Curtis and Christine Reyes. Now a TV5 talent, Derek has begged off from movie roles this year to aim for a gold medal in 2017 World Championships of Beach Ultimate in Plage de la Grande Conche, an international frisbee contest to be held this June in Royan, France.

Derek credits his lean frame to following the 70-30 formula, which means fitness is 70% diet and 30% exercise. He works out at home by doing squats, judo pushups, running sit-ups, skipping rope, and burpees. Aside from that, he plays golf, water polo, and rugby. He leads the Philippine frisbee team and is the head ambassador of the Philippine national beach football team.

Tying with Derek for the ninth place is Joseph Emmanuel Bascon, who is more popularly known as Joem Bascon. Joem broke into the entertainment scene in 2007 due to his close resemblance to Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby. But he proved that he can hold out on his own by doing movies and TV shows which showcased his range as an actor.

In 2013, he portrayed a gay lover in Lihis, which he admits is his most daring role to date. He also played Col. Paco Roman in the historical biopic Heneral Luna. His recent films include the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Oro and Across the Crescent Moon, a movie about human trafficking. Currently, he is busy with Pusong Ligaw, the newest ABS-CBN afternoon drama which just aired on April 24.

To keep his body in tip-top shape, Joem hits the gym three times a week and eats six small meals a day.

In the TV noontime variety show Happy Truck HapPinas from the same network, he was part of the You Only Live Once Lang (YOLOL) boy group, which was a featured act in the show. This early on, he has been dubbed “The New Dance Heartthrob.” Last January, he had his first move project in the teen horror movie Darkroom.


7. Joseph Marco

After being discovered, this hunk with German, Italian, and Spanish blood was soon cast in the GMA soap La Vendetta. In 2010, he switched networks to ABS-CBN and can now be seen in the afternoon drama Wildflower. He also recently starred in the horror flick Puwera Usog.

Joseph is not one to shy away from flaunting his fit bod. He has walked the runway for Bench: The Naked Truth Denim & Underwear Show and was included in Cosmo’s list of hunks in 2014. The 28-year-old star keeps buff by doing crunches and push-ups, and playing basketball. As for his diet, he limits his intake of rice and opts instead for high-fiber or high-protein food.


6. Derrick Monasterio

Up-and-coming star Derrick Monasterio, who ended up sixth in this list, is no stranger to showing off his bod. In 2015, he landed a spot in Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Cosmo Men section. Now that he has been cast in the GMA TV show Mulawin vs. Ravena, he has been exerting more effort in keeping his toned physique.

Derrick first appeared as a cute and cuddly tween in Reel Love: Tween Hearts series. His film credits include Si Agimat, Si Enteng at Ako and Tween Academy: Class of 2012. Nowadays, he can be seen in action-sitcom Tsuperhero.

Derrick hits the gym twice a day, plays basketball, and strives to eat a healthy diet to complement his exercises. He is also doing boxing in preparation for his role in Mulawin vs. Ravena.




5. Ivan Dorschner

Netizens first caught a glimpse of Ivan Dorschner’s toned physique during Katy Perry’s 2012 concert in Manila. The pop star dared him to take off his shirt as well as give him a kiss, making the video go viral.

Prior to this, the Filipino-American charmer had some exposure to showbusiness via modeling stints. He was also a contestant in Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash 2010, alongside James Reid. Though TV roles and endorsements came after that, he left the Philippines to study in the US. In 2017, the 26-year-old hunk staged a comeback, switching networks from ABS-CBN to GMA 7. He can now be seen in the Kapuso rom-com series Meant to Be as British balikbayan (Filipino returning to the Philippines) and entrepreneur Ethan Spencer-Hughes.

Ivan keeps his body beach-ready with core exercises. He goes to the gym three times a week, plays basketball, and goes mountain biking. He makes sure to hydrate and eat lean protein, vegetables, and high-fiber foods.

Twenty-eight-year-old actor and model Paulo Avelino sends many girls’ hearts aflutter with his sculpted body and boyish good looks. Carson, Maja Salvador’s character in the sleeper summer hit I’m Drunk, I Love You, was certainly not immune to his charms.

Paulo joined but got eliminated from the GMA reality search show Starstruck 4. After landing small screen roles in GMA, he signed on to ABS-CBN in 2011 in a bid to reinvent himself. He soon gained hunk status in his role as Patrick Salvador in Sana Bukas pa ang Kahapon. With numerous TV titles under his belt, Paolo is known as the “Prince of Philippine Teleserye.”

In movies, Paulo is best remembered for his turn as General Gregorio del Pilar, which has spawned many bae-yani (hunky hero) memes. He is set to reprise the role in the Heneral Luna sequel Goyong in 2018.

Paulo maintains his enviable bod by working out as much as he can, going jogging and rock climbing. He also makes sure to eat healthy food like sweet potatoes and plantain bananas.

Earning a spot in tenth place is Filipino-Swiss race car driver Marlon Stockinger. He may be famous for being Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s boyfriend, but he has proven himself in the racing arena, too.

In 2006, he won first place in the Asian Karting Open Championship - Formula 125 Senior Open and Rotax Max Senior. He has also won titles from Formula BMW Pacific 2008 Championships, the Senior Rotax Max World Finals 2007, and Philippine Shell Super Karting Series 2002. But his biggest achievement to date is his win at the Monaco leg of the 2012 Grand Prix 3, which made him the first Filipino race car driver to win in a European race. After driving for the Status GP team, he joined the Lotus F1 team as a junior team driver in 2013.

Marlon keeps his body ready for the race tracks by biking around his neighborhood. He plays football, basketball, and has even joined triathlons. He goes for lean protein like chicken or fish. He also limits his carb intake, reaching instead for brown rice.




9. Derek Ramsay, Joem Bascon

With his ruggedly handsome looks and rock-solid abs, it’s not hard to see why Derek Ramsay is one of the most bankable leading men in the industry today. The 40-year-old Filipino-British heartthrob is a hall of famer in Cosmo’s list of hot hunks, has bagged acting awards, and lives an athletic lifestyle to boot.

Starting out as an MTV VJ and model, Derek transitioned to hosting then acting. After starring in ABS-CBN TV shows, he played the leading man in the box office hit No Other Woman, opposite Anne Curtis and Christine Reyes. Now a TV5 talent, Derek has begged off from movie roles this year to aim for a gold medal in 2017 World Championships of Beach Ultimate in Plage de la Grande Conche, an international frisbee contest to be held this June in Royan, France.

Derek credits his lean frame to following the 70-30 formula, which means fitness is 70% diet and 30% exercise. He works out at home by doing squats, judo pushups, running sit-ups, skipping rope, and burpees. Aside from that, he plays golf, water polo, and rugby. He leads the Philippine frisbee team and is the head ambassador of the Philippine national beach football team.

Tying with Derek for the ninth place is Joseph Emmanuel Bascon, who is more popularly known as Joem Bascon. Joem broke into the entertainment scene in 2007 due to his close resemblance to Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby. But he proved that he can hold out on his own by doing movies and TV shows which showcased his range as an actor.

In 2013, he portrayed a gay lover in Lihis, which he admits is his most daring role to date. He also played Col. Paco Roman in the historical biopic Heneral Luna. His recent films include the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Oro and Across the Crescent Moon, a movie about human trafficking. Currently, he is busy with Pusong Ligaw, the newest ABS-CBN afternoon drama which just aired on April 24.

To keep his body in tip-top shape, Joem hits the gym three times a week and eats six small meals a day.

Joseph is not one to shy away from flaunting his fit bod. He has walked the runway for Bench: The Naked Truth Denim & Underwear Show and was included in Cosmo’s list of hunks in 2014. The 28-year-old star keeps buff by doing crunches and push-ups, and playing basketball. As for his diet, he limits his intake of rice and opts instead for high-fiber or high-protein food.

Now that he has been cast in the GMA TV show Mulawin vs. Ravena, he has been exerting more effort in keeping his toned physique.

Derrick first appeared as a cute and cuddly tween in Reel Love: Tween Hearts series. His film credits include Si Agimat, Si Enteng at Ako and Tween Academy: Class of 2012. Nowadays, he can be seen in action-sitcom Tsuperhero.

Derrick hits the gym twice a day, plays basketball, and strives to eat a healthy diet to complement his exercises. He is also doing boxing in preparation for his role in Mulawin vs. Ravena.

Netizens first caught a glimpse of Ivan Dorschner’s toned physique during Katy Perry’s 2012 concert in Manila. The pop star dared him to take off his shirt as well as give him a kiss, making the video go viral.

Prior to this, the Filipino-American charmer had some exposure to showbusiness via modeling stints. He was also a contestant in Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash 2010, alongside James Reid. Though TV roles and endorsements came after that, he left the Philippines to study in the US. In 2017, the 26-year-old hunk staged a comeback, switching networks from ABS-CBN to GMA 7. He can now be seen in the Kapuso rom-com series Meant to Be as British balikbayan (Filipino returning to the Philippines) and entrepreneur Ethan Spencer-Hughes.

Twenty-eight-year-old actor and model Paulo Avelino sends many girls’ hearts aflutter with his sculpted body and boyish good looks. Carson, Maja Salvador’s character in the sleeper summer hit I’m Drunk, I Love You, was certainly not immune to his charms.

Paulo joined but got eliminated from the GMA reality search show Starstruck 4. After landing small screen roles in GMA, he signed on to ABS-CBN in 2011 in a bid to reinvent himself. He soon gained hunk status in his role as Patrick Salvador in Sana Bukas pa ang Kahapon. With numerous TV titles under his belt, Paolo is known as the “Prince of Philippine Teleserye.”

In movies, Paulo is best remembered for his turn as General Gregorio del Pilar, which has spawned many bae-yani (hunky hero) memes. He is set to reprise the role in the Heneral Luna sequel Goyong in 2018.

Paulo maintains his enviable bod by working out as much as he can, going jogging and rock climbing. He also makes sure to eat healthy food like sweet potatoes and plantain bananas.
