WTFu: Bikini contest boy gets big break in showbiz

By:

Published

JM Martinez started out as a gym instructor. He used his sturdy physique and knowledge in proper workout to inspire his clients (inspire mo rin ako bro!). However, his career was cut short when his employer closed shop (sana ako ang nagtuloy!). Fortunately, his gymmate gave him another opportunity in the world of bikini contests. (Pengeng bikining itim mo!)

“Sabi n’ya baka raw gusto ko dahil maganda naman daw katawan ko. Sabi ko, sige, try ko. Ni-recommend n’ya ko sa agent n’ya,” JM recalled. (Sana sa akin ka na lang ni-recommend!)

He joined different contests around the Philippines for close to three years.

“Nu’ng una ay naiilang ako mag-bikini, pero nasanay na rin. Nu’ng time ko, naalala ko may nilalagay pa sila sa loob ng bikini para may dating daw. Never ko nasubukan ’yun. Okay na ’kong wala at baka kasi mahulog pa, nakakahiya.” (Parang need ko ng tissue now, pamunas… ng pawis ko!)

With his exposure in the pageant world, he thought of joining showbiz. But his first attempt did not prosper. “’Yung agent ko, may contact s’ya sa isang production, nag-audition ako. Okay na sana pero ayaw ako bigla ibigay nu’ng agent ko, kaya ’di ako natuloy. ’Di ko alam kung bakit ayaw n’ya.” (Kanya ka lang daw, chos!)

JM waited for his dreams to come true. It was in an unexpected place where he got his showbiz offer. (May offer din ako sayo, bro!)

“Isang beses umiinom ako sa isang bar, nakita ako duon ni Direk G.A. Villafuerte. Tinanong n’ya ako if gusto ko maging part ng film n’ya,” he recalled. (Lasingan tayo, bro!)

He has done several independent films since. Most of his projects are gay-themed stories. (Pwede ba sumama dyan?)

The 31-year-old indie actor, who recently appeared as guest on WTFu on YouTube, prefers doing gay scenes than doing love scenes with a female talent (ay may chance ako!) and here’s why:

“May girlfriend kasi ako at tanggap naman n’ya ’yung trabaho ko, S’yempre, mas gusto ko na ng gay film kasi ang kaseksena ko, kapwa ko lalaki. Walang mangyayaring selos kaysa sa kung babae ang ka-eksena,” JM explained. (Dahil dyan, umeksena na tayong dalawa, bro!)
