Excitement, anticipation, and exhilarating energy permeated the ballroom of the Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas during the recently concluded final callback session of the Century Tuna Superbods Nation 2016.
From an initial batch of over 60 fit, sexy, and pumped up men and women—each one selected from the go-sees all over the country—24 candidates were chosen in what was undeniably an afternoon of intense but friendly competition.
Comprising the board of judges were model and international host Joey Mead-King; actress and fitness buff Bubbles Paraiso; Ariel Comia of PC&V Communications; Greg Banzon of Century Pacific Food Inc.; 2009 Century Tuna Superbod Theresa Venger; and 2012 Century Tuna Superbod John Spainhour.
After the rigorous screening sessions which saw the hopefuls strut their stuff on the catwalk and put their best bodies—and personalities—forward, these fine men and women were declared as finalists:
Females: Olivia Medina, Carmela Fernandez, Ambra Gutierrez, Nancy Leonard, Princess Abella, Maria Martinez, Cassie Umali, Mirtle Gimenez, Kaara Tan, Carla Meneses, Anja Peter, Tanya Hyde.
Males: Jerome Tan, Ryan Sy, John Padilla, Erie Obsena, Ifran Khan, Jose Pio Luz III, Tom Esconde, Cedric Roxas, Shawn Stansbury, Ali Khatibi, Clint Bondad, Ameen Sardouk
From here, the 24 finalists will move to the next leg of the competition, where two Superbods candidates from the USA will join them. The search will culminate in the finals night on April 10 at the ultra exclusive Palace Pool Club.
Other exciting activities to watch out for in the 10th year of the Century Tuna Superbods search are the Century Tuna Superbods Nation 2016 Challenge and the Century Tuna Superbods Consumer Weekend on April 2 and 3 at the Bonifacio High Street, where you can meet and greet with past and present Superbods and some of the hottest celebrities, events sure to fire up the summer season.
