Yep, Benjamin Alves is Vince Saldaña!

Do you still remember Vince Saldaña? Yep... that guy from a previous post. I just found out that he changed his name to Benjamin Alves and he even transferred from being a kapamilya into being a kapuso. Will this move his career up? I do hope so...

This was confirmed by the news posted on, which you can see after jump.

GMA Network formally welcomed Benjamin Alves (fourth from left) as a Kapuso. He signed an exclusive contract today at the GMA Network Center where he was welcomed by GMA Network officers. Benjamin, who is a contract artist of Mercator Model Management, will be co-managed by GMA Artist Center.

With Benjamin during the contract signing are (from left) GMA Entertainment TV’s OIC Lilybeth Rasonable, GMA president and COO Gilberto Duavit Jr., GMA chairman and CEO lawyer Felipe Gozon, Jonas Gaffud (Benjamin’s manager) and GMA Films president Annette Gozon-Abrogar. (Source)

But a lot are still asking who Benjamin Alves is... so, here it is.

Benjamin Alves is the newest hot hunk to be a member of the GMA Kapuso Network. Benjamin Alves is a nephew of Kapamilya actor Piolo Pascual. And in case you are wondering why Benjamin Alves looks oh so familiar, it is because Benjamin Alves now is the former tv personality named Vince Saldana. Benjamin Alves as Vince Saldana was one of the winners of ABS-CBN's reality ad-serye "Close Up to Fame," a search for a looker with the cutest smile. Benjamin Alves as Vince Saldana was a beefcake model in so many pictorials before and has even appeared on the cover of the gay magazine, Discreet. Benjamin Alves is now under Mercator management and he just signed an exclusive contract with GMA Kapuso Network and will soon be seen in its shows. Benjamin Alves is from Guam, USA.

Some might ask, “Benjamin who?” Well, the guy is a talent of the now-famous Mercator Model and Artist Management and is being handled by head honcho Jonas Gaffud who divides his time between making beauty queens and transforming models into hot celebrities. He is most definitely a cutie of a hunk – what with that good-looking face, those piercing eyes, and a pretty nice built. You’d better get ready to see more of him in the next few months as he starts embarking on a showbiz career that should make ‘Benjamin Alves‘ a household name in no time at all.

Benjamin – co-managed by GMA Artist Center and Mercator – will be gradually molded into a dramatic actor in hopes of assuming leading-man status and getting paired with some of the network’s top actresses like Heart Evangelista, Lovi Poe, Rhian Ramos, Carla Abellana and Glaiza de Castro. Movies will most probably be in the offing as well. GMA Films has been steadily churning out a variety of flicks where he could get a role or two in the near future.

So what does the future hold for this tall and handsome 23 year-old? A lot, I reckon. He can fill the niche of GMA-7′s stable of artists waiting to be the next Dingdong Dantes, Richard Gutierrez or Dennis Trillo.

Remember the name – Benjamin Alves. (Source)
