Boracay native Kiko Rustia can add another achievement on his résumé aside from being a Survivor Philippines castaway and a co-host of the travel and wildlife show Born to Be Wild. The dreadlocked looker charmed voters through his online portfolio for Benetton's It's My Time, the brand's first ever global casting competition.

Kiko bested tens of thousands of participants from all over the world, being picked by online voters as one of the 100 finalists, and finally as one of the 20 winners who will be the newest faces of Benetton. Kiko bagged a trip to New York where he will be joining the 19 other winners in a shoot for the brand's Fall/Winter 2010 campaign by world-renowned photographer Josh Olins.
