New faces are always welcome here at FHM. Newcomers add an enticing and exciting air of mystery that can pique anyone's curiosity. When it comes to women, an unfamiliar character can easily turn heads.
Such is the case with our fresh-faced cover girls this month. Yes, we have more than one muse this August.
Meet Mara Lopez and Amanda Villanueva. The former is the daughter of beauty queen and sexy actress Mara Isabel Lopez, who is also a surfer and TV personality. Amanda, on the other hand, is a volleyball player for the Premier Volleyball League team BanKo Perlas.
Their separate cover stories not only show their skills in their respective fields, but also reveal different, sultrier sides to these beguiling beauties.
Mara, when she isn't riding the waves, is actually a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
"Gustung-gusto ko na nagko-cross over yung pagiging athlete ko sa career ko ngayon," she says. "Jiu-jitsu saved my life, because I feel like without jiu-jitsu, I would go insane in the city. It gives me a high just like surfing does, but it’s still a different kind of high."
Outside the court, Amanda loves to spend her extra time behind the camera lens.
She shares, "I like photography so much and I'd like to learn more [techniques]. I like street photography, specifcally—I like to explore the human element and the full range of emotions. I especially like it when my subject's eyes are very expressive."
Still, the two are obsessed with their first loves: volleyball and surfing. Amanda is currently the assistant team manager of the Adamson Lady Falcons. Mara is usually seen navigating the sea in her rash guard, on top of her board.
Aside from this sexy beach trip, this month's issue also includes a dissection of the passion of treasure hunters, a flowchart that navigates what it means to be a creeper, and a pork-lover's guide to bacon.
