The voting for FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women of 2016 has concluded, and as we await the final results of the magazine’s poll, we've come to think about how intense and controversial the competition for this year's top spot has been. There was James Reid opposing the list, questioning why his girlfriend Nadine Lustre is on top of a most sexiest list (but it's just him really being cute and protective of his lady love), then much to everyone's surprise, Marian Rivera and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach were not in the partial and unofficial top 10 list (then again, who knows, they might've just made the cut at the last minute!)
Based on the same partial and unofficial list released before the voting closed last June 15, Jessy has overtaken Nadine in the top spot, but the magazine has yet to make the big reveal of the final, official results.
As of press time, we've also got Kapamilya beauties Arci Muñoz and Angel Locsin along with Jessy and Nadine in the partial, unofficial top 10 list—and there's really no wonder at all because they ooze hotness that transcend the realm of the physical:
1. Most, if not all of us, may be swooning over Jessy Mendiola’s bikini photos, but what makes her even sexier beyond her physical hotness is how she promotes body positivity and confidence.

2. Nadine Lustre may not be the type who would flaunt her figure in a bikini, but her sexiness comes from the effortlessly confident way she carries herself in her wardrobe choices.

3. While she has already entered her 30s, Angel Locsin remains as sexy as she was when she started her showbiz career over a decade ago, thanks to her discipline in working out and eating healthy.
