Adryan John "AJ" Hanson is a 21-year old basketball player and model originally from Canada. He was born to a Filipina mother and a Canadian father and was raised in the city of Vancouver in the province of British Columbia. At present, he is in Manila to pursue his dream of playing basketball professionally.

Our viewers in the Philippines may recognize him from the recent staging of one of the biggest personality searches in the country - the Century Tuna Superbods - held earlier this year. In the competition, AJ showed off his well-toned physique, the product of a regular workout routine and a healthy lifestyle, which earned him the Best in Resort Wear award.

Prior to getting into modeling in Manila, AJ has had some modeling exposure back in Canada. He has graced some photoshoots for Vancouver-based photographers and he also has some experience in the ramp. His most notable stint, however, is his appearance in a few episodes of the American cheerleading comedy-drama, "Hellcats", which aired for a season on the CW. He attributes his fondness towards modeling to his experience in the now defunct television show.

Currently, AJ is serving the one-year residency requirement for foreign-schooled players before he joins the roster of the National University (NU) Bulldogs in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). So, when he's not busy with basketball practice, he intends to do modeling on the side. He hopes on becoming a popular model and product endorser in the near future and is open to doing campaigns here and abroad. However, until he realizes his modeling dream, you may watch out for him as he joins NU in its quest for collegiate basketball supremacy in UAAP Season 76.
