Cosmo's Man On Fire for August Paulo Avelino returned to our pages just a month after, this time as one of our 10 Celebrity Centerfolds for 2011. That same month, lucky Cosmo chicks saw Paulo's sexy bod' in the flesh, when he set the ramp ablaze at the Cosmo Bachelor Bash (the telecast of which you can catch on ETC next week, November 27, Sunday, at 9PM!). This month, he returns to our online pages as we finally release behind-the-scenes photos of his sizzling Centerfold shoot.
Paulo had the entire Cosmo team swooning over his ripped torso and drop-dead gorgeous face. We couldn't help but think what a lucky girl LJ Reyes is to have him for a boyfriend! Both are alumni of the GMA-7 talent search Starstruck, although Paulo has since moved to ABS-CBN. In between, the 23-year-old actor-model-host did numerous big and small screen projects.
While he told us he really prefers to keep his private life, well, private, Paulo couldn't help but indulge us with candid answers to our sexy questions during our interview with him. Read excerpts below, then launch the gallery to view his behind-the-scenes photos at last! We know you loved him as our Man On Fire, but we also know you loved him more as a half-naked Centerfold!
How do you maintain your physique?
By regularly going to the gym and sticking to a proper diet.
What makes you irresistibly sexy?
Physically, I think it's...siguro something to do with my eyes. Personality-wise, I try to be funny.
What qualities do you find sexy about a woman?
I find a girl sexy na, aside from maganda ang legs, malagkit tumitig...
What outfit do you find sexy on a woman?
A sexy outfit would be a simple dress that's above the knee, fresh looking. [Or maybe] a girl with a whip in a sexy leather attire, like a mini skirt.
What turns you off?
It has something to do with makeup...kasi I find girls who wear makeup na sobrang makapal very funny, parang nakakatawa sila tingnan. It's not appealing to put so much makeup on your face.
How would you seduce a girl?
Siguro a windy whisper to the ear...Censored!
Is there anything outrageous you'd like to try in bed?
Siguro the Indian thing with a lot of candles, incense siguro. 'Yon 'yung gusto kong i-try.
Which do you prefer: a girl who is aggressive or one who's submissive?
I think I would prefer a simple one. But in the bedroom, an aggressive one.
How could a girl pleasantly surprise you?
Siguro by holding a whip! 'Yun ulit e, 'no? (Chuckles.)
If you could take a girl on a romantic date anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Siguro I'll take her to an uninhabited island forest so I’ll show her that, even if it's just me and her, we can go against the world.
What's your sex fantasy?
The normal one: a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a girl.
