Now it can be told.
A week after Jessy Mendiola was hailed as the number one sexiest woman, the official FHM 100 Sexiest Women has been released together with the men’s magazine July 2016 issue.
TOP 10. FHM Magazine’s acting Editor-in-Chief Allan Hernandez noted that Jessy “was only seven years old” when the list of the country’s hottest ladies began.
Hernandez added, “She bided her time, honed her craft, pushed herself to be better, and now she is.”
Jennylyn Mercado, FHM’s sexiest woman in 2015, ranked number two this time around.
With a body-to-die-for and come-hither looks, she was described as an “insanely hot” celebrity who deserves to be on the list.
Former On The Wings of Love star Nadine Lustre rose up to number three from her 49th rank last year.
At one point during the partial and unofficial count of the FHM poll, the Kapamilya actress even made it to the number one slot.
Angel Locsin was deemed as an “immortal” by the magazine as she consistently makes it to the top list.
This year, she landed the sixth spot, which was two points higher compared to her ranking last year.
Definitely a level up from her 86th ranking last year, former Sinungaling Mong Puso star Rhian Ramos landed the fifth spot this 2016.
She was described in the magazine as a “drop-dead stunning muse for the next-level man life that we espouse.”
Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera is now placed in the men’s magazine’s “hall of fame” for being a three-time FHM sexiest woman (2008, 2011, and 2014) and for consistently making it to the list of the hottest ladies in the world.
From her 76th ranking last year, Arci Munoz was ranked seventh in FHM’s100 Sexiest Women this 2016.
She caught the attention of the public with her sexy roles in the now-defunct Kapamilya series Pasion De Amor and recent movie Always Be My Maybe.
Newly-married Solenn Heussaff got the eight spot this 2016.
Her ranking was three points lower compared to last year’s list. But taken or not, she undoubtedly remains to be the “finest and sexiest in the land.”
Ranking ninth in the list, Bubble Gang star Kim Domingo made it to FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women for the first time.
Apparently, her “Twerk It Like Miley” dubsmash video, which garnered 16.5 million views, was a huge hit among her male fans.
Volleyball player Rachel Anne Daquis ranked 10th and is much admired for her “awesome chiseled bod” and “boyish yet surprisingly beautiful looks.” She ranked No. 8 last year.
NEW ENTRIES. Aside from those who topped the list, it is also interesting to note other celebrity first-timers in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women for 2016.
Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach ranked 16th for being confidently beautiful with a heart.
The caption about her read, “Gorgeous inside and out—no wonder she’s the most beautiful woman in the universe.”
The country’s Dubsmash Queen Maine Mendoza landed the 21st spot after winning the hearts of the nation with her “simple extended smile and great sense of humor.”
