Matt Evans and Melissa Ricks are ready to become underwear models

During the launch for Penshoppe-MYX collection at the SM Megamall branch of Penshoppe last July 31, Club Pen models Matt Evans and Melissa Ricks shared their excitement about the clothing brand’s new collection (which is a collaboration with music channel MYX) and the brand’s upcoming new underwear line. “Abangan ninyo na lang!” Mel mischievously shared.
Although the Iisa Pa Lamang couple have always portrayed a wholesome image on and off screen, they confidently say that they are ready to take on a bolder image. “Okay lang naman po yun basta maganda pa rin yung itsura namin at hindi naman yung parang malaswa. Maganda naman yung produkto na imo-model namin if ever eh,” Mel added.
With the recent sex scandal issue behind him, Matt shrugged it off as a learning experience. “Ganun po talaga ‘pag nasa showbiz. Alam naman lahat ng kakilala ko na hindi ako yun eh. Kaya hindi ako bothered kahit anong sabihin ng iba basta yung mga kaibigan at pamilya ko naniniwala sa akin,” he stressed. When asked how he would feel if the similar scandal happened to Melissa, he went into defensive mode. “Hindi mangyayari yun at kahit na may ganun, sigurado akong hindi siya yun dahil hindi siya ganun na tao. Wala sa personalidad niya yung ganun,” he insisted.
Sporting a new leaner yet buffer body, Matt has also been preparing with more regular workouts at the gym. When asked how far he would go to model in an underwear catalogue, Matt sheepishly said, “Baka hanggang boxers lang po.”
