We can't believe we only heard about this just now: Did you all know that Marian Rivera is Ginebra's 2014 Calendar Girl? Where the heck were we when this happened?
Now, how could this particular pictorial slip off our radars? We should have seen this coming—she was after all, Ginebra's muse during this year's PBA season opener. We're sorry, bros. We really are.
Three words: Damn you, Dingdong!
Marian, who already posed for the alcoholic beverage brand back in '09, claims that her new batch of calendar photos (shot by Mark Nicdao in Boracay, Batangas, and Palawan) is a lot more daring than her previous one.
"Yung 2009 ko na calendar, medyo sobrang conservative. As in shorts ako roon at may balabal. Ngayon ay literal na two-piece ang suot ko," she explains. "Ngayon masasabi ko na nagkaroon ako ng kumpiyansa sa sarili ko dahil sa proper diet, exercise, at kahit paano may abs na rin ang tiyan ko."
Yes, darling, we can totally see the difference.
So this is the part where we tell the folks of Ginebra this: Can you, like, send some calendars our way? And by the way, sirs, BRA-f*cking-VO to you! Way to go make a statement on your 180th Anniversary!
"Napaka-thankful ko lang na magkaroon ng ganitong pagkakataon na maging parte ng pamilya kasi 180 years na ang Ginebra," adds Marian. "Thankful ako na ako ulit ang kinuha." Congratulations, Marian! (And congrats also to every lonely man on Earth!)
Not too shabby, huh? So what do you guys think of Marian's Ginebra calendar? Is it better than Heart's Tanduay calendar? Ooohhh, intriga! Let us know in the comments section below!
