Singapore, 10 February 2006 – Ladies, get ready to scream and groove to CLEO Bachelors as the hunt for Singapore’s most dateable guy hots up!


Thanks to a new and exclusive deal between StarHub and CLEO Magazine, you can now check out (and get up close and personal!) with the 50 super-sexy contenders, all vying for the coveted title of The CLEO Most Eligible Bachelor.


You can view and download salacious video clips and wallpapers of the guys on your 2.5G or 3G mobile phone, as well as watch the video segments on StarHub Digital Cable’s HubTV (StarHub Channel 26).


"Our partnership with CLEO is the latest enhancement to our ever-evolving content line-up. The CLEO Bachelor hunt is already a very popular and much talked-about event in Singapore and we believe StarHub’s unique and creative content mix on both Mobile and Cable TV will add even more fun and greater interactivity for its fans. Through hubbing we are able to bring the CLEO Bachelors even closer to their fans on the move with Mobile as well as in the comfort of their homes on Cable TV," Said Ms Tham Loke Kheng, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Content, StarHub. "Not only will StarHub customers get to know even more intimate details on the CLEO Bachelors, they will also get to make their opinions heard and win fabulous prizes in the process. The video element will make the CLEO Bachelors come alive from the magazine and we believe everyone will be greatly entertained by this collaboration between StarHub and CLEO."


Added Ms Corinne Ng, CLEO’s Editor: "Our collaboration with StarHub this year has enabled us to make the event even more gripping for CLEO readers! Taking the competition beyond the magazine, the guys will be going all out to impress supporters in a series of contests and vie for the votes that’ll help them clinch the winning title. It’s a terrific way for us to showcase each guy’s individual personality and prove Singapore does have its share of sporting, crazy-fun men! So, expect nothing less than red-hot action and very sexy entertainment."
