As one of the Baes of the noontime show Eat Bulaga, Joel Palencia makes many young girls kilig with his dance moves. He also acts, as the group was given their own morning series titled Trops.

But while he looks very straight on TV, photos of him kissing another man his age surfaced on the internet.

I’m a fan of Joel myself and I would like to give these photos the benefit of the doubt.

The photos could have also been staged, or they could be outtakes from a film production… an indie film perhaps?

But these photos look like they were taken before he even joined the That’s My Bae contest of Eat Bulaga.

See for yourselves:
