FHM (For Him Magazine) editor-in-chief Allan Madrilejos chats with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) about his wish list of cover girls.
Ara Mina's younger sister, Cristine Reyes, is on top of the list. "Si Cristine kasi, una, matagal na siyang inaabangan. Eto yung mga sobrang lakas na yung following nila. Sa website pa lang, ang hahaba na nung debate kung kelan. Yung hotness niya medyo kilala, e, mataas yung level," says Allan.
If Cristine agrees to pose for FHM, it will be her second time to do a sexy photo shoot. In the 2006 calendar of GMA-7's Artist Center, she and fellow StarStruck batch 1 avenger Katrina Halili were featured earing two-piece bikinis.
FHM also plans putting out the explosive duo of Angel Locsin and Katrina Halili on the cover. The two were hailed as FHM's Sexiest in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
Allan exclaims, "Mga concept na tipong Angel and Katrina magkasama, naging sexiest yung dalawang yan. Minsan lang hinahanap na may gawin kang iba. Isipin mo treat din ‘yan para sa mga mambabasa mo, yung mapagsama mo sila sa isang cover. 'Pag bida si Angel, ang effective na kontrabida si Katrina. Mayroon silang relationship na parang masarap i-explore at ipakita sa isang pictorial."
Nicole Hernandez and Kelly Misa are also included in the list. "Taon-taon ‘pag may 100 Sexiest [Women], lagi silang nandun. Taon-taon, hindi sila uma-attend ng iba nating events. Mapapansin mo ‘pag lumalabas yung pictures nila, ang lakas talaga ng sigawan. Meron silang hatak among the boys and gentlemen na sumusubaybay sa FHM. Worth a try naman... Pasok naman sila sa panlasa ng buong FHM," says the editor in chief of the number one men's title in the country about the two models.
Ehra and Michelle Madrigal also makes a tantalizing tandem.
Other personalities in the list are Ryza Cenon, Jean Garcia, and Mojofly lead vocalist Lougee. Allan explains, "Definitely yung choices, varied. Different range of sexiness. 'Di tayo confined lang sa young stars. Yun naman ang gusto nating i-develop. Well-rounded ang FHM cover babes. Medyo top of mind 'yan na maaaring matrabaho namin this year."
Angelica Panganiban, who's been in cover wish list for quite some time now, finally graced the March 2007 issue of FHM.
When asked what it takes to be on the cover of a men's magazine, Allan answers: "Kailangan ang lakas talaga nung sexy factor, na pwede siyang pag-usapan—kunwari, pwede kang pag-usapan sa website lang. Ang appeal niya, kailangang malaki. Hindi rin biro ang maging FHM cover. Kailangan maganda din yung pagpili at nasa timing din."
The plans are still on the drawing board, but one sure thing is that male readers can expect another sexy year with FHM!
