It was a relief to see Raphael Carlos of Marikina City winning Mr. Philippines-International 2010, just when the pageant was perilously veering towards an outcome that favored the hometown boys. 
Among the 10 semifinalists, Raphael was among the few who looked comfortable during the interview portion. He said discipline and perseverance were the most important lessons he learned by joining the pageant. 
Ruel Posas of Cavite, who fumbled and mumbled his answer during the interview, was first runner-up. His fellow Caviteno, Darwich Saulog, was third runner-up. Ericzon Sola of Laguna, who was named Best in Swimwear, was second runner-up. Roger Valdez of La Union rounded out the top five.
Raphael won the title over 20 others on September 4 in Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park, Kawit, Cavite. The pageant, which is on its third year in the country, is under a new franchisee and was staged in partnership with the local tourism office. Previous winners of the international competition -- Bruno Kettels of Bolivia and Ngo Tien Doan of Vietnam  -- graced the event.

Heatwave: James Versoza

Heatwave's claim to fame is naming as its male winner a relative newbie in male pageants named Harry Chua, who later on starred in a gay-themed indie film (sporting a new name: Harry Laurel), posed near-naked in a magazine and kept the rumor mills running as to his whereabouts. That was a few years back. On June 13, Sunday, the Starmall group's bikini showdown will be choosing a new winner from among a dozen men who we hope will have a longer shelf life than his predecessor. 
Take a closer look at these 12 hunks, starting with James Versoza.
