Aaaand the nation has spoken: Marian Rivera is FHM's Sexiest Woman in the Philippines for the second straight year! Sirs and madams, let's all give The Queen a warm round of applause!
This makes Marian the first woman to win our coveted title three times! Her initial run in 2008 proved that she belongs right up there with the sexiest of 'em. Her comeback win in 2013 told us that she's ready to reign supreme again and usher us all into a new era of sexy. But the third one, boy, how can you possibly explain this? Marian Rivera has officially now become the gold standard for success!
Want to hear something even more awesome? From the more than 13 million votes cast in this year's poll, the now-three time Nation's Finest got a total of 1,529,974 votes. That's almost double the votes she got from last year (890,490)! Guess that second FHM cover and those Belo and Bench Body billboards really, really paid off.
This thing wouldn't have been possible without your help, FHM Nation. We'd like to thank those who brought our website and microsite a whopping 58 million pageviews in a span of two months. We'd like to thank the 2.9 million unique visitors who kept this thing rolling for the better part of the campaign. And to those who sent to the Summit Media office their printed ballots—you, sirs, are the heart and soul of this list. Naks!
Alas, you can see the fruits of your labor in our FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2014 supplement, which will be available alongside our July 2014 issue early next week!
But first, we'd like you to meet the rest of the women on the Top Five of this year's #FHM100Sexiest list. They're waiting for you on the next page!
