There’s something to be said about the ladies who, in between MMA or boxing fights, hold up that huge sign and walk around the ring. Not only are they there to tell your drunken, inattentive ass that the next round is about to start, they also serve as a formidable distraction from the ongoing violence.
These modern-day muses serve as decompressions to the overwhelming testosterone that floods these matches. Like gladiators from another era, fighters battle it out, as blood and sweat become bi-products of entertainment. And in the end, one man always comes out on top, persevering and proving that discipline and hard work come hand-in-hand in the game of warriors.
In celebration of the throw-down, FHM has prepared a special bout just for you—it involves said “distractions.” In exchange for blood and sweat, we have brazen beauty and oozing sex appeal. In one corner, FHM favorite Jem Milton, whose creamy skin and outrageous body has graced our rag and website on more than one occasion. And the challenger: newcomer Cheska Alvia, whose natural poise and svelte physique are nothing short of a knockout.
With this dynamic duo raring and ready for a pose-off, we heed the words of famous fight referee John McCarthy and say: “Let’s get it on!”
So what’s been keeping you busy since you last graced our pages?
Ganun pa rin: events, car shows, and fashion shows.
But now you’re a URCC ring girl, too. How did you get this job and what exactly does it take to be a ring girl?
Mga last year pa ito, pero hindi consistent. Sa opening, may entrance kami, then we give away T-shirts for URCC. Then per round, nagtataas kami ng card.
Do the fights entertain you?
Oo, pero napapapikit ako. Ha ha! Nakakaawa kasi eh, pag sinasapak sa ulo, ganun. Napapapikit na lang ako. Siyempre natutuwa ako sa fight, pero hindi ko pa rin maalis sa sarili ko yung awa.
You’re a favorite among our readers. After all the FHM shoots you’ve done, do you still get nervous?
Siyempre may konting hiya pa rin. Ha ha! But from way back when I started, I really wanted to shoot for FHM. So kahit ilang beses, go!
So what’s next for you? Where do you see yourself in the next couple of years?
Sana sinusuportahan pa rin ako ng mga tao and may continuous job offers na dumating. Pwede rin namang mag-artista. Anong klaseng artista? Sexy! Ha ha! Di ko pa naiisip actually.
Okay, so in the meantime you’ll be a staple at our car shows and events then. Maybe you could give us advice on how to woo a car show model?
Models at car shows and events are like normal girls, too. Gusto rin naman nila yung mga ginagawa ng lalaki para sa normal girls, like being sweet and thoughtful. Ganun lang naman yun eh. Wala namang secret sa ganun.
So you’re saying you’re approachable, and we actually should aprroach?
Oo. Approachable. Pero wag naman yung bigla-bigla na nakakatakot. Ha ha! Wag naman yung stalker ang dating. Be yourself lang siguro.
We also noticed that you’ve reached new levels of hotness. What’s the secret to the new and improved Jem?
Kasi dati ang daming nagsasabi na ang chubby ko raw. Ha ha! So ayun, nagbawas lang sa kain. Dati lahat ng meals may kanin, ngayon no rice at all.
We can’t imagine not eating rice. Don’t you miss it?
Nami-miss ko ang kanin. At Coke! Ha ha!
We must say this sacrifice is paying off. You’ve also done practically everything from lingerie to bikinis. Any concept you still want us to do, seeing how we’re sure you’ll be back on our pages again?
Alam ko na-mention ko na ito sa first FHM interview ko, na gusto kong may cause yung shoot, like animal welfare. Mahilig ako sa cats, kaya ako may cat tattoo. I have pet cats, pero stray lang sila. Inaampon ko sila.
Animal lovers, they say, have the same characteristics as their pets. What can you say is cat-like about Jem Milton?
Feeling ko, sa umpisa, medyo mailap ako sa tao. Pero pag makuha mo na yung loob ko, malambing na ako.
