MANILA - With over 13 million votes counted, men's magazine FHM announced on Friday the results of its annual "Sexiest Women in the Philippines" poll.
Topping the list for the second year in a row is actress Marian Rivera, who got over 1.5 million votes, according to FHM on its official website. The two-time FHM cover girl also ranked first in the 2008 list, making this the third time she was named the country's sexiest woman.
The 29-year-old actress took to Instagram shortly after the announcement to thank those who voted for her in the poll.
"Sa kahit anong larangan, ang pinakamahalaga ay ang mga taong nandiyan para sayo, gagawin ang lahat nang walang kapalit na hinihintay, tatanggapin ka bilang ikaw sa kahinaan mo man o kalakasan at ang pagmamahal na walang hanggan.
"Salamat dahil 'yan ang palagi ninyong pinaparamdam sa akin... ano man ang natatamasa ko ito ay utang ko sa inyo. Salamat at kayo ang isa sa mga biyaya na pinagpapasalamat ko. Muli, maraming salamat sa lahat ng bumoto sa akin," she said.
Placing second this year is Sam Pinto with 1.4 million votes. Since 2011, Pinto has consistently placed either second or first in FHM's "Sexiest" list, according to the men's magazine.
Also a staple in the Top 5, Kapamilya star Angel Locsin came in third this time with over 1 million votes. She outranked Jennylyn Mercado by 20,000 votes. In fifth place, meanwhile, is Cristine Reyes, who got more than 850,000 votes.
The full "FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2014" list will be released along with the magazine's July 2014 issue.
