Emotions are flaring. The winner's side is expectedly in a jubilant mood, while the respective camps of some runners-up still have something to say.
At the end of the day, we can only crown one Queen. And that turned out to be Jessy Mendiola.
From being No. 23 last year, the ABS-CBN actress got more half a million votes (589,792) to unseat Jennylyn Mercado as Philippine's Finest.
And while not everyone is still felling sore about the results of the voting, all we could do is show the exact figures for Jessy's closest competitors.
Here they are, the rest of the 100 Sexiest's Top 5:
#2: JENNYLYN MERCADO
Total number of votes: 502,934
Last year: No. 1
She was 88,858 votes away from a back-to-back. Once again, Jennylyn Nation put up a good fight, and don't expect them to back down even one bit next year.
#3: NADINE LUSTRE
Total number of votes: 492,905
Last year: No. 49
The On The Wings Of Love star and one-half of the famed JaDine tandem almost pulled off a Cinderella finish, emerging on top of the poll at one point. Maybe if James didn't tweet against it, Nadine might have sustained her lead.
#4: ANGEL LOCSIN
Total number of votes: 378,293
Last year: No. 6
Just another day at the office for the consistent Top 10 placer (since her first inclusion in 2003) and two-time Sexiest Woman (2005, 2010). The scary part? She's not even trying...
#5: RHIAN RAMOS
Total number of votes: 370,727
Last year: No. 86
Talk about coming on strong this year for our July Cover Girl. Having made the biggest jump among this year's Top 5 (81 spots!), she more than deserves to banner this year's 100 Sexiest issue.
