If it isn't apparent yet, Erika Padilla is one of those celebrities who can pretty much do it all.
For starters, her dedication to courtside reporting is impeccable. She can also give the writers of Grantland, Yahoo! Sports, and FHM.com.ph a run for their money with her knack for sports journalism—we're also pretty sure no boss can say no to her. And you know what else? She's our most favorite host ever. Why else do you keep seeing her in our parties, right?
And did we mention how gosh darn flexible she is? Look!
But after everything we've just told you, can you believe that there's still more to Erika than meets the eye? Bet you didn't know that she can also do the other stuff we're about to show you. Scroll down to see the many talents of our June 2014 cover girl!
Did you know that Erika's first crack at showbiz was as a contestant at a swimsuit competition? She joined the Miss Bikini Philippines 2008 pageant and even won the Miss Photogenic award. Bikini ramp modeling is one of the most physically taxing ventures out there, and it takes real talent to pull something like this off. (Jump to 04:07 for Erika's part; but we understand if you want to watch the whole thing!)
Erika is also into film producing! Back in 2012, she served as executive producer of an indie movie called #MadalingArawMahabangGabi, starring Angelica Panganiban, Glaiza de Castro, and Karel Marquez. The film didn't really do well in the box office, but those who have seen it call it "the ultimate YOLO movie." Check out the trailer here:
Erika is as flexible as it gets; we've laid that out a million times. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that dancing is also one of her strongest suits. What's surprising though is that the MTRCB let this super sexy dance number off the hook. This is too hot for TV!
