It has been four days since the steamy Bench successfully wrapped up its Under the Stars 30th Anniversary show at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, but social media is still abuzz with fans mooning over the stars who flaunted their heavenly bodies.
Apart from hunks Markki Stroem and Rocco Nacino who got cheeky on the runway, who can forget the beefy Tom Rodriguez strutting his stuff in the show.
In case you missed it on your feed:
Need another look?
In video, please? You got it.
As images of Tom Rodriguez make the rounds of social media, temperatures quickly rise.

Everyone is giving their two-cents worth about Tom's trending bulge, and comments have been entertaining, to say the least.
Some just couldn't have enough of Tom.
What does his girlfriend Carla Abellana say to all that?
In jest, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) after the show, “Hindi ako tumitingin, natatakot ako! Lagi naman yun ang pinag-uusapan sa kanya, e!”
TOO SKINNY FOR BENCH BODY? Apart from social media’s fixation on Tom’s "package", others express concerns regarding his built.
Some fans notice that Tom appeared skinnier than in his previous outing in the Bench Body fashion.
See this comparison photo of Tom from Bench The Naked Truth back in 2014 and Tom from last Saturday's show:
Tom acknowledged the change in his built on his Instagram and told fans not to worry.
The Kapuso actor wrote, "To those concerned that I'm too skinny, thank you and your concerns are noted.
"It's just that I was a little too on the chubby side and we can't simultaneously cut fat and gain muscle.
"We finished the [fat] loss phase and are just about to start the muscle gaining stage now for next year.
"Trust that my trainer and I are doing everything in a controlled and healthy fashion and we both have a big surprise for you all next year :)"
It appears we haven't seen Tom at his best form just yet!
