Nearly four million votes were cast during the voting period—from April 1 to June 15—in this year's FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll. After weeks of partial results that saw three of the country's biggest and hottest stars shuffling in and out of the top spot, Angel Locsin is now officially back to No. 1 after five years.
It was back in 2005 when Angel last held the top spot. Between then and now, the country saw her lord over national primetime viewing via several blockbuster series such as Mulawin, Darna, Majika, and Asian Treasures. In 2007, she had a much-publicized transfer from her former home network GMA-7 to rival ABS-CBN. Since then, Angel went on to star in two more primetime series, Lobo with Piolo Pascual and Only You with Sam Milby and Diether Ocampo. She is currently working on another series also for ABS-CBN, Imortal, with reigning box-office king John Lloyd Cruz and a movie under Star Cinema with Aga Muhlach.
Last May saw her return to the cover of FHM and now that she is once again FHM-Philippines' Sexiest Woman, it looks like Angel's star is set to shine even brighter. She was catapulted to the top spot with a total of 284,156. Last year's defending queen Cristine Reyes comes in at second place with 227,390 votes while GMA-7 siren Marian Rivera places third with 218,742 votes.
Victoria's Secret model Marissa Miller is adjudged the FHMglobal winner by the FHMInternational Network.

- Angel Locsin
