All of us knew that July 11 was going to be a DAMN GOOD day.
All of us knew that the night will be closed by a walk of triumph from the finest of them all, this year's Sexiest Woman, Jennylyn Mercado.
And while all of those presumptions ended up being true, there were a handful of things that we weren't quite expecting, like...
1) A MORE MATURE-LOOKING MEG IMPERIAL
How about another go at our cover (her last was in December 2012), Meg? *winks*
2) A ROUSING KWJAN SET
The studded BroCon lineup was originally composed of Chicosci, Spongecola, Ebe Dancel, and Sandwich. Enter the Marc Abaya-fronted Kjwan and we got a louder party and a much more revved up crowd! (Alt-rock band Lunar Lights also warmed up the day's festivities.)
3) THAT PANTS-TIGHTENING ROGIN-E PARADE...
4) ...WHICH WAS EVENLY MATCHED BY RRJ'S STAR-STUDDED ROSTER
5) A 'YOU'RE MY FOREIGNAY' SIGHTING
Even manong bouncer wasn't able to keep his eyes off the über-kawaii Dasuri Choi.
6) THAT GAME OF TWISTER
The folks at Tanduay really fulfilled our fantasies, bar none. After giving us that dreamlike ball pit, they treated a few lucky attendees to a seemingly harmless game of twister...with the TANDUAY BABES. Yep, winning!
7) LHEA BERNARDINO'S KAGE BUNSHIN NO JUTSU
Number 59 (in the 100 Sexiest list) was literally all over the place! Just when you though she was just signing books with FHM's resident suplado, Stanley Chi, Lhea jumps with you in that glorious Tanduay ball jacuzzi! (And yet she still had the time to get on that ravishing number for the Victory Party runway!) Did we miss anything, Lhea?
8) THE THIRD SEXIEST (NOT) IN A BIKINI
Why tease us like that, Ellen? *sobs*
9) MARIA OZAWA HITTING THE SEXIEST RUNWAY
We we're initially informed that the Japanese AV legend and last month's Cover Girl will just be gracing the RRJ booth for some Autograph Signing and meet-and-greet at the BroCon, but it turned out that she also had a couple rendezvous with the Victory Party runway in her.
Arigatou gozaimasu, Maria!
10) AIKO IN AN '80S AEROBICS GARB
It was only a matter of time before our long-legged February 2015 Cover Girl slipped into some singit-peeking dance class clothes! (Or aren't we just watching enough Banana Nite?)
11) A TWERKING VALEEN
12) RITZ'S BLUE-COLLAR OUTFIT
She might be channeling her inner trabahador here, but that pair was as eye-popping as ever.
13) AUBREY'S RAIN GEAR
Aubrey Miles just comes up with something fresh every year. This time, she came as a friendly (and sexy) warning this wet season. Keep it coming, Aubrey!
14) RACHEL ANNE'S KILLER ABS
15) THE SEXIEST WOMAN'S HISTORIC VICTORY NUMBER
We're all aware that Jennylyn can hit the right notes, but who would've thought that she would take her talents with her in the runway, a first in 100 Sexiest Victory Party ramp history. Bravo, New Queen, bravo!
