You've met the women, now here are the guys who captured the eyes of many who caught the string of heart-tugging Valentine's Day ads from fast-food giant Jollibee. 

The ever-loyal best friend in the first video of the series is a hunk named MJ Tam, a bodybuilder in real life. A lot of girls are willing to line up to give this guy a hug after seeing him flash a cheeky smile as he watched the love of his life get married, only to be betrayed by the tears in his eyes. 

 

The guy whom his lady love is tying the knot with is Matthias Rhoads, an aspiring actor and model. He also has the body to rival that of Tam as he was picked to star in the local musical parody of the raunchy bondage film, "Fifty Shades of Grey." 

 

In the second video, the dimpled cutie with the glasses is Enrico Cuenca, said to be an alumnus of California State University, where he studied film criticism and production management. He is currently signed under a local talent agency, and has starred in several other local commercials. 

 

As a bonus, some eagle-eyed fans may have noticed that a familiar face playing the older version of the basketball head — the rival of Cuenca's character — was in the second video. It's actually former basketball pro Joey Santamaria. 

 

Santamaria played for De La Salle University in college and was part of the first Green Archers team to win a UAAP championship, as Spin.ph noted. After a stint in the PBA, Santamaria went on to carve out a career in modeling.
