Rachel Anne Daquis on being the cover girl of FHM October 2014 issue: “Athletic yung pagiging sexy niya. So I just portray yung role ng isang althlete na nakuha niya ang ganung body kasi I’m into sports.”


Rachel Anne Daquis has been recognized in the field of volleyball, which started when she became the team captain of the Lady Tamaraws of the Far Eastern University in her college years.

She has been a standout since then.

Later on, she led the PLDT Home TVolution female volleyball team that represented the country in the 2014 Asian Women’s Club Volleyball Championship held in Thailand last April.

But take note, her “killer spike” in the court is matched by her “killer looks.”

As a matter of fact, she is the cover girl of the current issue of the country’s leading men’s magazine.

Last October 17, Friday, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Rachel Anne during the press presentation of the men’s and women’s volleyball teams that will represent the country in the 28th Singapore Southeast Asian Games in 2015.

Through the help of PLDT Home Fibr—the country’s leading fiber-optic broadband—the Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) had painstakingly screened the best volleyball players in the country and came up with the top 18 men and 18 women that comprised the two division teams for the SEA Games next year.

Not surprisingly, Rachel Anne made it to the final line-up of the female players.

“Syempre po, honoured and proud po, and mixed emotions kasi nire-represent ko na naman yung country,” replied the FEU Business Management graduate.

She currently appears on FHM’s October 2014 issue, how does she feel that she is equally admired for her looks as for her skills as a volleyball athlete?

“Happy ako kasi maganda yung feedback sa akin ng mga tao, being an athlete and a model,” she told PEP.

There is common notion that a female model has a “sexy image” when she appears on a men’s magazine. Does this bother her?

“Hindi kasi we came up with a sports edition. So naging maganda ang kinalabasan, so hindi siya sexy na totally sexy.

“Kumbaga, athletic yung pagiging sexy niya. So I just portray yung role ng isang althlete na nakuha niya ang ganung body kasi I’m into sports,” she explained.

Unsurprisingly, her definition of sexy hits close to home.

“Ang sexy sa akin, yung athletic body,” said the volleyball player, who is also into swimming and basketball.

THE OTHER SIDE OF RACHEL ANNE. In her own right, Rachel Anne can be considered as a celebrity, and she has her supporters to thank.

“Lagi ko iniisip kung wala yung supporters ko, wala ring Rachel Anne Daquis. Wala akong magiging name sa volleyball and [as a] model.”

Beyond the fame and her volleyball uniform, Rachel Anne describes herself as simple and a dreamer.

“Madami akong dreams. Hindi natatapos ang dream ko kaya nasasabi kong dreamer ako.

“Unti-unti ko siyang naa-achieve.”

She swore that she is currently single.

And as for the type of guy that she goes for, she said, “Simple lang din, atsaka yung pareho kami ng passion, yung sporty din.”
