As both guest and host of YES! 100 Most Beautiful Stars 2011 press conference, John "Sweet Lapus was the life of the party.
Donning a checkered polo and bright red pants, he kicked off his emceeing by remarking on how his outfit matched the color of the table cloths.
During the event’s question-and-answer portion, Sweet mediated between the stars and the press, and because he was included in the 100 Most Beautiful, he had to answer most of the questions, too.
Did you expect na mapipili kayo sa YES! 100 Most Beautiful?
A quick-witted Sweet answered, "Oo naman, expect na expect ako!
"Dyusko naman, limang taon! Every year inaanatay ko ’yan, binubuksan ko talaga, bumibili ako ng kopya!
"Bumibili ako ng sampung kopya, baka yung isang kopya nagkamali, nalagay yung pangalan ko!"
This year, Sweet has finally made it to the list where he joins "The Comics" with today’s venerable comediennes: Eugene Domingo, Pokwang, and Vice Ganda.
Later, a direct question was thrown at Sweet: "Anong feeling ng makasama sa list? Di ba first time mo dun sa list? Nagulat ka ba or in-expect mo since last year pa na mapasama?"
An honest and grateful Sweet responded: "Oy, nag-expect naman talaga ako.
"Nung tinawagan ako for the pictorial three months ago, tuwang-tuwa talaga ako nang bonggang bongga!
"Kasi parang yung unang tinawag sa akin, ipi-feature lang yung bahay ko. Tapos ang sinegue na nga dun is kung puwede daw... mag-separate pictorial na rin kami for the YES! 100 Most Beautiful."
"Mas na-excite pa ako dun to think na isang shot lang yun... kaysa sa actual pictorial."
The July 2011 issue of YES! featured the homes of Sweet, Vice Ganda, Pokwang, and Eugene Domingo.
Sweet was also asked who his top male bets are had John Lloyd not been named.
In all candidness he replied, "Dingdong, Piolo, Chard, and my Dennis Padilla... my Dennis Padilla..."
"Dennis Trillo pala! Dennis Padilla tuloy! Kasi katabi ko si Bela [Padilla]! Katabi ko si Bela, tapos kamukha ko si Marjorie [Barretto, Dennis’s ex-wife]!
"Pasensiya na. Nakakaloka! Dennis Trillo siyempre!"
