As a fitting tribute to the summer 2010 gone by, we are featuring the Search for the Hunks and Babes 2010 of Dolores Tropicana Resort Proclamation Night.
Bariles was again asked to judge the Al Nezzar Ali-directed bodies-and-faces spectacle along with Mandi Nicolas, publisher of GenSan Gazer, Flawless GenSan’s Doan Balboa, the lady-manager of RD Hardware and an American client of Dolores Tropicana.
The production concept this time was a hodge-podge of influences, a combination of East-West and Mayan cultures. The almost bare stage (except for the Mayan backdrop) had two ramps extending towards the audience section and joined at the center near where the judges did their thing a few feet away.
There was a shower-like contraption on the left side of the stage which would provide the highlight of the evening, the WET RAMPAGE.
Scattered all around were green pock-marked mushroom-like objects hanging from above and posted on the ground. Think Land of the Lost, Temple of Doom and Apocalypto.
This year’s batch of the 10 hunks and 10 babes vying for the TOP 3 positions had three costume changes and this being in General Santos City where the Gender Awareness Development (GAD) is in effect, their swimsuits were again tame and “safe”.
The men wore identical swimtrunks and boxer briefs while the ladies had on short shorts instead of bikinis. What they lack in the costume department however, the 20 candidates made up in their posing-in-wild-abandon skills which however, prolonged the program again far beyond the attention span of the audience.
Here are more pictures….
In the end, the men and women who emerged as winners were the following:
- Hunk of the Year – Joey Orig (Cash Prize of P15,000)
