As expected, the world went bonkers when we introduced Beauty Gonzalez as our cover girl for the month of August. Mission accomplished!
The thing though is some of our readers still refuse to believe that Beauty's curves are to die for now.
But can you blame them for thinking that her FHM cover's too good to be true? Maybe what our readers need to know is the story of how the chubby cutie pie turned into one of the sexiest women in the land. And that's exactly what we're gonna do!

The pressure of being a housemate prompted Beauty to lose track of her weight. "There were mirrors in the PBB house and akala ko fake," she tells us in her cover interview. "Hindi ako naniniwala sa mga nakikita ko sa reflection ko. Tumataba ako pero in denial ako." In fairness, cute ka pa rin naman eh.
"Nung lumabas ako sa real world, I met up with my mom at a hotel and she told me to take a look in the mirror," she continues. "Ayoko nung una. Nag-breakdown ako. I didn't like what I saw. It was the heaviest I'd ever been in my whole life." According to Beauty, she was approaching 145 lbs at this point.
Fortunately for Beauty, projects continued to come along post-PBB. "Nagkaroon ako ng work and that's where I realized that I needed to take care of myself," she quips. The photo below was taken just before her 18th birthday, and it appears Beauty had already shed some of the weight she gained inside Kuya's house.
