KRISTAL PELOMIANA, 20 

On what it takes to be an Octagon Girl: "The organizers were looking for a Filipina beauty with a nice physique, and I believe I fit that description." 

On whether she watches MMA: "I used to watch a lot of professional wrestling, but I've since transitioned to mixed martial arts because my boyfriend is a fan." 

On working with Arianny Celeste: "My gosh, it's a dream come true for me to have the opportunity to stand next to Arianny. It would be an honor to work with the most famous ring girl in the world." 

On posing for FHM: "Why not? It would be a great opportunity. I feel like I can do anything right now. Life's too short, you know."

RED DELA CRUZ, 22

On what it takes to be an Octagon Girl: "Siguro naghahanap sila ng girl na may tamang attitude. Someone who is positive, fit, and healthy." 

On being an experienced ring girl: "This is a very big promotion and more people are watching, so mas nakakatakot for me. But I've worked as a ring girl before, so I think I can use that to my advantage."

On working with Arianny Celeste: "To work with Arianny would fulfill a dream of mine. Every ring girl in the world idolizes her."

On becoming a full-time Octagon Girl: "Of course! I would say yes in a heartbeat. Accept lang dapat nang accept."

CHRISTINE ELLE, 25

On flying all the way to Manila: "I currently live in Brooklyn, New York. I flew out all the way from there just to be here because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I couldn't let it pass. It's a big step, for sure."

On her background as a car show model: "I've had a lot of live and promotional experience because I love cars and I've done a lot of car shows. I see that being a ring girl is very similar to what I do."

On whether she watches MMA: "Oh, absolutely. I love watching Frankie Edgar. He's a well-known grappler and has the ability to take someone down and maintain ground control. He has a lot of skills, ability, and precision. There's a lot of thought that goes into what he does."

On how she keeps in shape: "I'm an adrenaline junkie so I like to do a lot of crazy things. I love snowboarding, ice skating, and I also dance a lot. I live in Brooklyn so I also get to use my bike every day.

MIRTLE GIMINEZ, 26

On being a former Bb. Pilipinas contestant: "I'm practically new to modeling, but my big break came in 2014, when I became a part of Bb. Pilipinas. But I never made it to the top 40, so I'm not sure if it counts. This is a new opportunity for me."

On whether she watches MMA: "Well, yes, because I do tae kwon do! I've seen a lot of UFC fights last year. I saw the Anderson Silva fight—the one where he had his foot broken—and I felt pretty bad!"

On why she decided to join: "I'm not getting any younger and I want to make sure that I give it my best shot with all the opportunities coming my way."

On posing for FHM: "That's funny. This ring girl thing is outside of my comfort zone, and I feel like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly right now. Since I'm already here, I want to immortalize myself as much as I can. I think I'm ready for FHM."
