Who on Earth Could Be Hotter Than Marian Rivera?

Apparently, our Indonesian friends think someone else is.

Marian Rivera is used to dominating lists. Her name is practically synonymous to words like "Sexiest" and "Most Beautiful," but a recent ranking of seven sexiest women in Asia–from our buddies over at Esquire Indonesia–apparently thinks she's only second best.

Published on March 21, the list includes Indonesian supermodel Kelly Tandiono (7), Japanese model Tao Okamoto (6), South Korean actress and musician Lee Ha-Nui (5), Pakistani actress Mahira Khan (4), and Chinese superstar Fan Bingbing (3).

The feature has this to say about Mrs. Dantes: "Hingga saat ini, nama Marian Rivera masih kerap mendominasi jagat hiburan Filipina sebagai aktris dan model. Wanita blasteran Filipina dan Spanyol ini bahkan pernah beberapa kali masuk dalam daftar 100 wanita paling seksi di dunia versi majalah FHM."

Okay, so the write-ups are all in Indonesian, but because we didn't have a lot of fluent Bahasa-speaking friends around, we used trusty Google Translate to help us out. Marian's reads:

Until now, the name of Marian Rivera still often dominate the Philippine entertainment world as an actress and model. Mulatto woman Philippines and Spain have even been a few times in the list of 100 sexiest women in the world FHM magazine.

Er, mulatto? Make that Spanish-Filipino, Google Translate. She's also been on FHM's Sexiest list almost every year since her showbiz breakthrough in 2006, the exception being 2015–the year she was pregnant. That's more than a few times. Marian topped it three times (2008, 2013, 2014) to become the first member of FHM Philippines' Sexiest Women Hall of Fame in 2016.
