Pinoy pride times two

Fil-Am Model Jeff Langan is currently in Gold Coast, Australia, he represented the Philippines at the Man Hunt International competition held last night

Langan is articulate, confident, with a lean and mean, male super model body and yes, he is easy on the eyes too. 

His basic stats, towers at 6 foot 1,  30-inch waistline, tight abdominal muscles, shirt size varies from medium to large, with an eleven inch shoe size.

Pinoy food that he digs, beef and shrimp sinigang.

I had the chance to interview the Fil-Am mutt prior to his flight to the Land Down Under. My first query: When did he realize his good looks? He chuckles then answers sweetly, “I think when I was 4 years old, It came from the friends of my grandma, they said I look like Richard Gomez.”

No pulling your leg here, in my humble opinion, he looks better than Goma. And with his chest hairs, doing a peek-a-boo from his under garment, (sadly they are waxed to achieve that smooth and clean body look), this young man is smoking, smoldering even.

His edge as a Man Hunt contender, “It’s my modeling experience. Ever since I was a baby, I was already modeling. Also, the fact that I am Filipino is definitely an ace.”

“What I love about being Filipino is our cultural heritage, the warmth, smile and sincerity that we all have,” professes Langan. “I am going to highlight that part of us.  When it comes to answering questions, it will never be sugar coated, the answers will always be truthful. “

His admission, “I will not deny that I am a little nervous, but it is that good kind of nervousness, you know. When that feeling of happy kind of nervousness sets in, I am more motivated to give my best. I know Man Hunt is a competition, but I am also there to enjoy the whole experience, meet new friends and maybe, even open more doors of opportunities.” 

When it comes to the subject matter of being objectified, Langan’s reaction, “Well, I am cool with the attention. With regard to me being treated like a sex object or part of somebody else’s fantasy, as a model, people always look at you all sorts of way. I  I don’t take it against them. “

Another Pinoy pride, Miss International first runner-up Ahtisa Manalo, is truly a  world class beauty. Poised, speaks her mind with the choices set of words, so feminine sounding and her most attention getting physical statistic, her 24-inch waist line.

Manalo does not deny she felt some pangs of pain when she did bring home the title, “I will not deny that I did feel sad but it was easily overtaken by happiness because I received so much during the pageant. For three weeks, l was by my lonesome. My family arrived the day before the coronation night. You know, it was my support system, fans, friends and yes, a lot of gay men who, on a daily basis, sent me messages of encouragement and love. “

What was going through her hand during pageant night? She answers, “How do I project the best way I can.  How do I walk properly so that I will not trip. How do I maintain my composure, contain my feelings with a smile.  You know, when you are in the competition, you become so conscious of the reality that you are not in the pageant because you can, but you are part of it because you are representing your country.” 

Apart from her modeling assignments, what will she do next? “I still have several activities that will happen in Japan. I’ll be back there in February. My most immediate plan, since I have a finance background, I want to start my own business.”

She adds, in conclusion, “I hope we have a news program wherein I can present business or finance news. I want people to have more knowledge about financial matters.”
