Exploring 'Tower 69': 12 Cosmo hunks to watch for

MANILA, Philippines - Excited ladies will once again convene for this year's Bachelor’s Bash by Cosmopolitan magazine happening at the World Trade Center on September 24.

The bash is themed Tower 69, or the sexy workplace where no meeting is boring and the boardrooms are forever occupied by good-looking gents. 

There are 69 bachelors, but these are our 12 picks to light up the runway at the bash this coming Wednesday. 

1. Paulo Avelino

During the press conference for the Cosmo Bash last September 9, the actor promised he will show more skin this year.

"Hindi ko inexpect na kukunin nila ako ulit after hindi ako nakapunta sa Bash last year. It's my third time this year, and there's going to be more skin for everyone!" he said.

(I did not expect that they would get me again after I wasn't able to attend last year's bash.)

Paulo recently went topless at the Bench Naked Truth fashion show. Will he show more than that at the Cosmo bash? (READ: Best of the night: Who stood out at the Bench 'Naked Truth' show?)
