Catching Up With Philippine Volcanoes' KENNETH STERN

Learn more about this Fil-Am athlete, who has captivated Cosmo girls both here and abroad, in this interview. Plus, see outtakes from his Cosmo Hunk Of The Month shoot.

Kenny SternHe may be primarily an athlete, but rugby player Kenneth Stern has carved a name for himself in the world of modeling, too. The wing for the Philippine Volcanoes National Rugby Team first caught our eye when he posed with his teammates for Bench billboards seen along EDSA. The sexy underwear ads were quickly taken down, but not before the ladies of the metro got a glimpse of him and the other hunks who would later make rugby another new popular sport locally.

Cosmo, of course, took notice of Kenneth, and made him our December 2011 Hunk Of The Month (see his profile on p.84). We got to spend time with the hunky athlete, together with his teammate Chris Everingham, at his shoot right on the rooftop of the Cosmo office!

But, this isn't the 23-year-old Fil-Am athlete's first Cosmo stint; he has actually posed for our mother publication, Cosmopolitan US, and was even a finalist in the US Cosmo 2011 Bachelor Of The Year poll!

Lucky for us, he's decided to stay in the country for now. He's totally committed to representing the Philippines, and we couldn't be more grateful!

We got to chat with Kenneth after his shoot, and he opened up to us about his love life and what he's looking for in a relationship. Read excerpts from our interview with him below.

How many girlfriends have you had?

I've had two serious girlfriends in my life, but I'm single now.

How's your date life?

I've been dating for a few years now, so you know, I'm looking for the right one. But I'm happy playing the field and not settling down for anything--really finding the right girl.

Would you ever date a fan?

Yeah, I think so. If she shared the same love that I do [for] rugby, the Philippines, and the Volcanoes, why not? It's something in common that we have. I love to meet the fans, and maybe there's one out there for me.

What makes you a great catch?

Even though I'm a big, tough rugby player, I'm really soft-hearted and kind-hearted.

Describe your flirting style.

I'm pretty laid-back and not too aggressive. It's nice to have a girl who can come up to me.

What's the best flirting advice you can give our girls?

Take risks. Don't be afraid. Most guys are good guys, so just be yourself.

What should girls never talk to guys about?

Ex-boyfriends. I'd rather they just talk about me!

What are your relationship non-negotiables?

Definitely trust and honesty, especially with [the team] being on tour a lot. We're constantly traveling to other countries and being away from home, so if there's no trust involved, then it'd be hard to be in a relationship. Same goes with me trusting her when I'm away from her and she's doing her own thing.

What's the sexiest thing a woman has ever done for you?

Planning a really romantic date where I don't have to do anything planning-wise. Most of the time, guys plan everything, so I find it sexy when a girl can take control. Make the date the perfect date that she would have.
