The country's pioneer issue of Esquire Magazine made a list of real life Filipino heroes to look up to. Choosing one's TNL idol is still, highly subjective and comparing my own list to their list is like comparing apples to oranges. You will never find any businessmen here since my own criteria focuses on politics, sports, and culture. Besides, I don't consider the privileged affluent kids who just continue to develop their inherited fortunes (mana) tough enough without trying to make a name for themselves in a completely different field. That made Jose Rizal and Ninoy Aquino exceptional for doing the opposite by sacrificing their names, their fortunes, and ultimately their lives for the good of the country. 

 Including the Pacman below, the photo collage and list of the other 29 (pictured above) show my choice of Real Life, TNL Pinoy Idols.
