Cosmo Online Hunk Ari Salud: Casual Cool

You've seen him as a sexy jock and a cute geek. This week, he charms us in jeans and a tee--and that winning smile.
You know what September 2009 Online Hunk Ari Salud looks like as a jock (sinewy stud) and as a geek (nerdy stunner). Now, even dressed down in typical college kid attire—jeans and a T-shirt—this hot student-athlete shows us why he simply stands out from the university crowd.

In this Cosmo interview, Ari clues us in on how he likes to spend his time when he’s not sweating away during rowing practice or intensely burying himself in his studies. This college heartthrob chooses to kick back the wholesome way—by watching movies, surfing the Net, and staying away from vices. Don’t you just want to take him home to meet your folks?

What’s your idea of fun?

Just having the free time to relax and chill with your friends. That’s fun na for me.

What do you usually do when you have free time?

I watch movies with my friends if there’s free time. As in recent movies. That’s what I do.

Which do you prefer, gimik or stay at home?

Depends on the week. If it’s a tiring week, I’ll stay at home na. Then if it’s a relatively light one, game--gimik!

When you go out on a gimik, it’s not the drinking kind?

No.

So what do you do?

I drink lang during special occasions and dahil sa peer pressure. Especially with the team. Alangan naman they’re all drinking and you're [not]. So I join them na lang. But I don’t look for it talaga e, for some reason. Hindi talaga ako mahilig.

Do you prefer to watch TV or browse the Net?

I don’t watch TV. I [prefer to] surf the Net.

Where do you usually hang out?

‘Pag free time [on a school day] I go to Katipunan. It’s a good place to hang out. On weekends, Eastwood. I [like] walking around in Eastwood.

Where wouldn’t you be caught dead in?

In school, the smocket. The smocket is the only place where you’re allowed to smoke in the campus. So you really won’t find me there.

Wow. So you have no vices at all?

None [at all].
