Maxine Medina, who represented the Philippines in the Miss Universe pageant last January 2017 at the Mall of Asia Arena, beat out Gal Gadot, who holds the number two spot in the Philippines, but was also the third-most Googled actor in the whole world.
Wonder Woman is followed by actress Kylie Padilla, who was engaged this year to Aljur Abrenica, and gave birth to their baby boy last August. The number four spot belongs to Kim Tae-Hee, a Korean actress who also got married and gave birth this year; while number five is Maureen Wroblewitz, winner of the fifth cycle of Asia’s Next Top Model.
