ABS-CBN talent and Viva contract artist Nadine Lustre has emerged as this year’s sexiest woman in the Philippines.
On Thursday, FHM announced that the 23-year-old actress led the online poll of the men’s magazine’s annual “100 Sexiest Women” list after garnering 491,039 votes online within a two-and-a-half month polling period.
“Nadine’s ascension to the ‘Throne of Sexy’ comes as no surprise—not only does she have the most loyal fans, she also has the glowing assets to show for it. FHM Nation had a glimpse of a sexier Nadine in a series of summer photos she posted on social media, where she flaunted her body in the best swimsuits. From then on, it was apparent who would emerge as No. 1,” the magazine said on their website.
Lustre, who landed the third spot in 2016, thanked the magazine and hundreds of thousands who voted for her on social media on the same day.
“Really didn’t expect this to happen. Maraming salamat everyone for voting! Thank you @FHMPhil. It’s an honor,” the multi-media princess posted on her Twitter account.
Rounding out the Top 10 are Kim Domingo in second place, garnering 459,192 votes, followed by Rhian Ramos (359,405 votes), last year’s winner Jessy Mendiola (350,182 votes), Ellen Adarna (320,391 votes), Jennylyn Mercado (318,273 votes), Angel Locsin (248,192 votes), Liza Soberano (201,925 votes ), Maine Mendoza (200,182 votes), and Solenn Heussaff (180,294 votes).
The complete list of “100 Sexiest Women” will be included in the July 2017 issue of FHM Philippines.
