Anji Salvacion, Aljon Mendoza, Jameson Blake, Other Star Magic Artists Sizzle On Hot Summer 2024 Runway 

It’s a fiery spectacle brought by your favorite Star Magic artists!

Star Magic’s Anji Salvacion, Aljon Mendoza, Jameson Blake and some other contract artists of ABS-CBN’s talent management arm have brought in a fiery spectacle in Laiya, San Juan Batangas on Wednesday, May 15, 2024 for this year’s Hot Summer 2024. 

Driven by their goal to promote wellness, these artists have undergone extensive fitness training—a kind of metamorphosis—just in time for summer. Now, they’ve taken the stage to showcase what they worked hard for. 

Anji, Aljon, Jameson, Joao Constancia, Kaori Oinuma, and JM De Guzman took center stage to parade their curves and muscles. They’ve wrapped up the event as headliners—following a series of ramp walks made by other talents. 

P-pop girl group BINI initiated the fun—as they went in full summer mode by singing their hit song “Pantropiko” as the opening number. While doing so, Jake Cuenca, Chie Filomeno, and Barbie Imperial were introduced as fitness ambassadors.

Stepping their feet first on the ramp was the first batch of ladies composed of Gabb Skribikin, Thamara Alexandria, Dalia Varde, and Maxine Trinidad. 

“Tawag ng Tanghalan” alum Reiven Umali followed—serenading the crowd with his own rendition of “Saan” by Maki. He was then followed by Zach Guerrero, Lance Carr, Rob Blackburn and Kobie Brown—who also had a little paper dance with some select audiences. 

Rob, for his part, had a solo moment as he introduced his upcoming single “Biyernes ng Gabi” slated for release on May 24, 2024. 

Shanaia Gomez also took the microphone for her own take of “Slow Dancing,” while “One More Chance” The Musical lead, CJ Navato, graced the catwalk with chiseled abs, biceps, and an entertaining rendition of “Kailan.” 

In the end, Anji and Kobie both nabbed the Fan Favorite Hottie Female and Fan Favorite Hottie Male, respectively. Closing the ramp, once again, is BINI, who sang yet another hit song, “Salamin, Salamin.” 

Star Magic’s transformational journey 

This year’s Hot Summer event is much more than a visual spectacle. More than its purpose to showcase physiques, it is anchored on a deeper goal of promoting wellness at its core. 

According to Entertainment Production and Star Magic Head Laurenti Dyogi, the event is constantly evolving—this time, fusing the values of the debut and sophomore summer event to turn it into something more. 

As he puts it, “We’ve been evolving Hot Summer for the past three years and for its third year—it’s a hybrid of the first and the second.

He adds, “We’ll do a body transformation, which is a new project that we embarked on. We challenged the artists to venture to three-month journey of lifestyle change, to doing a body transformation. 

Subukan nilang ma-disiplina, hindi lang ang katawan nila kundi ang utak nila at ang kalooban nila.”
