MANILA, Philippines – Hunk actor Paulo Avelino, best known for his antagonistic role in the top-rating ABS-CBN series “Walang Hanggan,” is all set to show off his lean, toned physique once again at the much anticipated “bachelor bash” of women’s magazine Cosmopolitan Philippines.

Avelino, who is still busy taping for “Walang Hanggan,” said he has been preparing his body for the Cosmo Bachelor Bash, an event known for its sexy stunts.

This year’s event will be held at 7 p.m. on September 18 at the World Trade Center.

“Ngayon mostly diet na lang eh, medyo puno ‘yung schedule ko for the past months. And wala masyadong time para mag-workout,” he said in a press conference for the event. “I try to do push-ups and sit-ups.”

When Avelino strutted down the runway for the Cosmo Bachelor Bash last year, he brought a pair of scissors and cut his pants before a predominantly female audience.

He also poured water all over himself during the event.

This year, Avelino said he is open to doing anything. “Siguro kailangan nating tanungin ‘yung mga girls kung ano ba gusto nilang makita. Ano ba?” he told the Cosmo staff, who merely smiled and giggled.

Asked about what he considers his “sexiest” body part, the “Walang Hanggan” actor said: “My eyes. ‘Yun ‘yung sinasabi nila, eh.”

Avelino leads the ten “centerfolds” of Cosmo for 2012, which also includes “Angelito” star JM de Guzman, actors Alden Richards, Ian Batherson, John James Uy and Mikael Daez, “Pilipinas Got Talent” season 1 finalist Markki Stroem, Century Tuna Superbods 2012 winner John Spainhour, and athletes Anthony and James Semerad.

Other men who made it to the magazine’s “69 all-new, all-hot bachelors” list include Kapamilya stars Martin del Rosario, Baron Geisler, Robi Domingo, Arron Villaflor and Dino Imperial.
