A lot can certainly happen in a year.
This time last year, Sam Pinto graced the cover of FHM for the very first time.
She was the cover of the July issue which also featured the annual list of 100 Sexiest Women in the World.
Little did she know that exactly one year later, she would be on top of that list as the FHM Sexiest Woman in the World for 2011.
The San Mig Light endorser led the hard-fought poll thrice, and stood firm on the top spot for the final two weeks.
Marian Rivera finds herself in second place, while Kapamilya star and last year's Sexiest Woman in the World Angel Locsin completes the top three.
Cristine Reyes and newcomer Solenn Heussaff land the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.
At the end of the voting period, the results gathered were staggering.
Over 30 million votes, consisting of online, text and print ballots, were generated in this year's FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll.
FHM Philippines' website, FHM.com.ph, peaked at 30,669,728 monthly page hits on one particular month (May) during the entire voting campaign.
