100 Sexiest Women for 2013   Leave a comment

Welcome to the latter part of the year! It’s July now, and while it’s more known as the official start of the rainy season (here in the Philippines at least), it is compensated by the country’s favorite poll. July is the official “100 Sexiest Women” month by FHM, as we await on who will be unveiled as the country’s finest, as voted by the fans.

This poll which started way back in 2000 has definitely gone a long way already. In its first few years, it’s filled with Hollywood actresses dominating the list, as compared to now where they are struggling to even make the list. Among those who made the list are Oscar winners Halle Berry (topping in 2003), Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz, Hilary Swank, and Natalie Portman.

News personalities like Rhea Santos, Vicky Morales, Cheri Mercado, and Pia Guanio also had their share of moments in this annual list, and even the likes of Kris Aquino (in 2001), Sharon Cuneta (in 2002), and Ruffa Gutierrez (both in 2000 and 2002)  have been included here. Singers Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mandy Moore, Natalie Imbruglia and Andrea Corr  have been mainstays during the early years as well.

With the release of the 14th issue this year, 1400 spots have been gone to 300+ women who have, in one way or another, made mark as part of FHM Philippines history. Let’s first give a spotlight to sixteen impressive mainstays who frequent this list for a long time already.

THE TEN TIMER CLUB

10x

Six women have been in the list for a decade already. Starstruck first batch alumnae Katrina Halili, Jennylyn Mercado, and Cristine Reyes all have stayed in the chart since their debut way back in 2004. Between the three of them, they all share three #1 titles, 20 Top 10 spots, and eight covers. Pretty impressive eh? More impressive than that though are hosts Toni Gonzaga and Iya Villania who maintained in the charts as well in the same time frame as the three previous women with no FHM covers to boot. Among the prominent female group Viva Hot Babes, it is the petite Maui Taylor who had the most number of appearances with ten starting from 2002 up until this year, only skipping 2008 and 2012.

THE MIGHTY ELEVEN

11x
Next up are five women with something in common: all have been in the FHM Sexiest Women poll for eleven years now. Let’s start with the only FHM cover girl in the bunch, Angel Locsin. With four covers under her belt, Angel has already made her own FHM record. She’s the only ever in the history of the poll who have been in the Top 10 ever since her debut in 2004 (when she debuted at #10) up until her eleventh year this 2013 where in she was third placer. Really impressive eh? Alongside her though in this group are ABS-CBN stars Bea Alonzo, KC Concepcion, and Kristine Hermosa (none of them who graced the covers… yet) and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez who has four Top 10 placements (with her #8 spot in 2010 as her most recent).

A DOZEN VISITS

12x
Now next in line are those who have been in the charts for a dozen times already. What’s more impressive about these four women is that they all achieved this feat in simultaneous years. Let’s divide them in pairs and start with two past FHM cover girls. Maureen Larrazabal is one of those who can proudly say that she’s one of the original FHM Sexiest Women gals, as she started her stint in 2000. Two covers and 11 more appearances, and she ended her reign in 2011. On the other hand, original FHM darling Diana Zubiri is still going strong in the polls with her appearance #12 in this year’s list. She might not have coveted the top spot, but she was 2003’s Philippines’ Finest just behind global champ Halle Berry. As for the other two women in the list, let’s just say that they definitely belong to FHM’s best frustrations, as both didn’t give the magazine a chance to headline them, yet that didn’t stop both Anne Curtis and Heart Evangelista to slay these charts since their debut in 2002 up until now. With fifteen women down, do you have any idea on who tops our list?

THE ULTIMATE CHAMP

14x
And the longest staying woman in  this list is none other than Rufa Mae Quinto. Peachy has made the list every single time since its beginning way back in 2000. With three covers under her belt, what’s shocking about this is that she wasn’t able to reach the Top 10 in all fourteen years, as her closest was #11 back in 2004. Since she showed no signs of stopping, maybe she can finally enter the coveted group in the succeeding years.

Now I know you want to know who made this year’s list, so as per tradition, here’s the top 20 in pictures (and in code names):

20-16   15-11   10-06   05-01

As for the rest of the poll, I’d let you find out that by yourself by grabbing a copy of the FHM July issue with Alodia Gosiengfiao on the  magazine cover and Roxee B (that’s Roxanne Barcelo for you, folks) on the Top 100 cover. Just to give you a clue, you’ll be seeing Jessy Mendiola, Andi Eigenmann, and Jodi Sta. Maria in the list but not the names of Sarah Geronimo, Iwa Moto, and Jasmine Curtis Smith in it.

Congrats to those who made the list this year!

FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2012   2 comments

There are lots of good things that happen every July, but this will always be one of the more prominent ones for July is the month when FHM Philippines release their 100 Sexiest Women List. While the title has transformed into a battle of idols for the last few years, there is still something interesting about it that keeps you glued in on which vixen owns the throne as the World’s Sexiest. Anyway, Jackie Rice (for the second time) covers the issue this month, but this is the first time that the same woman is the cover of the magazine and the 100 Sexiest booklet. Before revealing the complete list, here are some observations I had while skimming the list:

1. THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE RISE OF THE BUTLEG

That’s Jackie Rice’s sweat themed cover, and while it was apparent on the top part, the same can’t be said there below. I mean take a look:

I mean look closerrrrrrr…

O ayan nag-mukhang mga butlig at allergies yung tubig sa singit ni Jackie. Tsk tsk.

2. THE 99 CURSE

Sa FHM 100 list, kabugan ang labanan at talagng pinagtatalunan kung mamemaintain ang #1 status. However, the same can’t be said sa #99 na mukhang dinomina na ni Jem Milton sa kanyang 2nd consecutive year sa #99. Aba naman fans, boto pa ng mas masipag next year!

 3. HAVING TOO MUCH ISN’T ALWAYS GOOD

Take the case of FHM Beauty #85 na si Aze Sasaki:

Isa pa ulit na closer inspection:

Hindi na ka-aya ayang tignan ang mala-bukol na tumubo sa likuran ni Aze. Goes to show na hindi lahat ng sobra ay maganda.

4. MAKE SHAINA YOUR VICE

Yung totoo. Paano nakalusot si Vice Ganda dito? Ay shet Shaina pala. Buti may nakalagay sa baba. Pati kasi yung caption na Hot Property, mas naga-apply kay Vice. Sorry Shaina. Wag mo ko sampalin nung parang sa teleserye mo.

5. IT ONLY COUNTS IF YOU SEE A NIPPLE

Sabi nga sa Mean Girls, it only counts if you see the nipple. Gone are the days sa 100 Sexiest Women booklet na may nagtatopless. As a matter of fact, dalawa lang ang nagtopless at nagbuyangyang ng kanilang buong pantaas ng walang takip sa buong list. Eto sila:

6. THE MINI STOP SPONSORSHIP AWARD IS GIVEN TO…

IWA MOTO para sa kanyang free endorsements sa mga sumusunod na produkto: C2, Gardenia, Tropicana, Minute Pulp, at Wilkins. Salamat Iwa sa iyong mabuting kalooban. 🙂

7. THE JUSTIFY YOUR PLACEMENT AWARD

Alam kong marami ang aalma na ang taas ni KC, pero subjective naman ang taste kaya hahayaan ko na. Pero naman. Ito na ang pinakasexy na photo na nahanap niyo sa kanya? Uhm. Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy.

8. THE OBLIGATORY ANGEL LOCSIN PHOTO


Siya talaga ang number 1 para sa akin. Don’t worry Angel, naniniwala ako na  ikaw ang makakaunang 3 first place finish sa history ng listahan na ito. Bago pa yan, sobrang proud ko kasi 10 years ka nang nasa Top 10 at walang mintis dahil nasa Top 10 ka sa lahat ng taon na yun meaning isang dekada mo nang dino-dominate ang listahang ito. Yehey! For the record ito ang history ni Angel dito:

2003: #10
2004: #6
2005: #1
2006: #3
2007: #3
2008: #4
2009: #4
2010: #1
2011: #3
2012: #2
2013: ? Sana umber 1 ulit!
