Hunk of the Day: Paolo Roldan

Paolo Roldan11

Filipino model Paolo Roldan has walked the runways for Armani and Givenchy, putting my ancestral homeland on the male model map with his rather fine form in this Hunk of the Day post. His memories of growing up in the Philippines are touching, and I can relate to them probably better than most: “I was born in Quelon City in the Philippines and lived there until I was about 9. I still have vivid memories about growing up there. It was different from a North American way of living. We spent most of the year in Quelon City, where I went to school at Ateneo De Manila. Academically, I did well, but somehow I felt like I didn’t fit in for the most part. When school ended, my parents would send my brother and me to our grandparents’ farm in the provinces. We would help to plow the fields and take care of the animals. My grandfather also had fighting cocks. My brother and I would go on Stand by Me–like adventures — minus the corpse.”
