9. CHRISTOPHER JOHN "CHRIS" ALANDY-DY TIU

Unique selling point: The Ateneo de Manila University basketball team's golden boy did his Alma Mater proud when he led the team to victory during his last year as a Blue Eagle in 2009. He is now captain of the Smart Gilas-Pilipinas national team. Host of GMA-7 shows Ripley's Believe It or Not and Pinoy Records, he also endorses Smart Communications' Sandbox, as well as Milo, and Greenwich.

Pedigree details: Tiu comes from the family that "owns or control various top corporations such as Discovery Suites in Ortigas Center, Discovery Shores in Boracay [and] Zhangzhou Stronghold Steel Works Ltd. of China," among others, according to a 2008 article by The Philippine Star. A Management Engineering graduate, Tiu seems set to continue his family's legacy-he co-founded food stall Chinky Chickens as a student entrepreneur and plans to focus on business some time after his 20s.

Where you might spot him: He flies all over the world for Smart Gilas-Pilipinas international games but you can catch his local basketball games usually held at the Araneta Coliseum. Find out where he is through his blog or Twitter page.

10. PHILIP JAMES "PHIL" YOUNGHUSBAND

Unique selling point: His last name says it all. He is most definitely young husband material. A former Chelsea reserve team player, this British-Filipino football star made the billboard rounds in Manila during the mid-2000s, joined Celebrity Duets in 2008, and was a centerfold in Cosmopolitan Philippines in 2009. It's not all roses, though. He's been embroiled in controversies such as the loss of endorsements and an alleged rift with his manager Joyce Ramirez.

Pedigree details: Brother to fellow football player James Younghusband, he admits football leads to favoritism in the family, though their mom Susan denies this. He told Inquirer.net, "[My parents] are torn between James and myself. If one is doing better than the other, they don't like that. They want us both going up together. If I'm doing better than James, my mom will slightly favor my brother. If James is doing better than me, I'm favored. It's like the Filipino way."

Where you might spot him: At football events like the Younghusband Football Academy Clinic Series at the Ayala Alabang Country Club.

ERRATUM: Even in this day and age where everyone shares information online, there are people like musician Franco Reyes who manage to keep their private lives, well, private. As it turns out, he is married. We thank divasoria (as well as Lauren and beetlejuice) for spotting our error. Our sincerest apologies to Franco and, er, Mrs. Reyes, we hope you understand why we were dying to include your gorgeous and talented husband in the list. Peace!

    Oh by the way, is it now considered "eligible" even if the person has a boyfriend or girlfriend? or married for that matter? Hhhhm have we changed so drastically?

    It said that spot missed coco martin which is so not qualified for the list.

    I guess GMA's kinda jejemon with their taste.

    Hello, That's why they're eligible, because they came from DBF, or De Buena Familia. They're good catch and are financially capable to raise a family. If they're masa they won't be in this list in the first place.

    If I remember correctly, Derek Ramsey is not a gym guy. He said he gets his fitness only through sports.
