This is definitely more than just sheer luck.
The same time last year, Sam Pinto has set a new perspective for sexiness as she won the title of the FHM Sexiest Woman in the World 2011.
As most people have already expected on this year’s poll, Sam joins the ranks of Katrina Halili and Angel Locsin as one of the prestigious celebrities to win the coveted title twice.
In the partial and unofficial results released last May, Angel Locsin led the poll for two straight weeks as Sam found herself in second place.
But at the tail-end of the poll, Sam rose to the top spot as Angel dropped to second place.
Solenn Heussaff, Cristine Reyes, and Marian Rivera landed third, fourth, and fifth spots, respectively.
Completing the Top 10 are January 2012 cover girl Ellen Adarna; current cover girl Jackie Rice; March 2012 cover girl Bela Padilla; and Kapuso stars Jennylyn Mercado and Lovi Poe.
The numbers were nothing short of staggering at the end of the campaign.
Over 17 million votes, consisting of online, text and print ballots, were generated in this year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll.
This year, it was indeed a battle between the Kapamilya star Angel Locsin and the reigning Sexiest Woman Sam Pinto, as Angel garnered a total of 1,131,505 votes against Sam’s 1,249,189 votes.
