A teammate of mine once said “Ask any fashion girl and she will tell you she loves a guy who looks bango.” In the same way that we’re obsessed with looking fresh, this is also what we look for in guys. Parade yourself in front of us smelling good and we can forget about that hideous ensemble you have on (that can be fixed afterwards). Below, we list down a handful of local celebrities sporting a clean shave, a neat haircut, and that killer boy next-door-smile, all of which, look—and hopefully smell—the Mabango Guy part.
He’s smart, well-traveled, business-minded, athletic, charming, and most of all, he looks so fresh even when sweating on court—while everyone else looks like dirty dishcloths. Don’t you just want to introduce him to mom?

The way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach. But truth be told, we can just watch Erwan cook and be totally fine. Anne Curtis is one lucky lady.
We are deeply under the spell of James Reid. Quite a few members of the team are hooked to On The Wings of Love because of this guy and his dagger stares.
Half Swiss, full-time racer, total hottie. How can we not love a guy in a (jump) suit.
We totally get why Yaya Dub has fallen head over heels for him. He's oozing with boy-next-door charisma.
Guys with the bad boy charm are usually more on the rugged side. But aside from the fact that Jake cleans up pretty well, all his IG photos with the little Ellie also make him so adorably bango.

How old is he even? Seriously, Pangako Sa ‘Yo’s Eduardo Buenavista doesn’t age and we're crushing on him, big time.
Speaking of Pangako Sa ‘Yo. Jericho Rosales knows the secret to looking mabango is a good shave. He even has his own barbershop.
Racer, triathlete, host, and actor, is there anything this good looking half Italian can't do?
Whether he's reporting about the weather in the middle of a storm or helping out in Nepal, he manages to always look clean and fresh.
JOHN LLOYD CRUZ
Even if he grows his facial hair (or shaves his head), John Lloyd will always be Mr. Nice Guy to us.
It's his baby face that makes him look so fresh, don't you think?
An Archer's arrow straight to the heart.
Enchong is so well-traveled, wouldn't you want him to show you the world?
JAMES AND PHIL YOUNGHUSBAND
Even when they're drenched in sweat in the field, they still look super bango, times two!
We can smell a good looking guy underneath those bad boy trappings.
In this 13-year-old PBB teen finalist, we see a young James Reid in the making.
