Angel Locsin, a finalist in's Top 99 Women 2008


Back in July, it was already a big surprise when Angel Locsin was featured in the internationally-known, considered as the largest men's portal in the world with 5 million readers a month.

According to the author of a special feature about Angel, Angel’s spunky demeanor and refusal to conform has ensured that she’s a figure worth watching -- with a figure we don't mind watching at all.

But what surprised me more is when has shortlisted Angel Locsin as one of the 180 contenders for Top 99 World's Most Desirable Women 2008, pitied against other top Hollywood actresses and models.

Angel Locsin, a full-blooded Filipina, has been hailed many times as one of the Sexiest Women by FHM Philippines, and if she becomes one of the world's Top 99 Women, that can be considered one greater achievement for her.

Meanwhile, two half-Filipina also made it to the list, TV host Vanessa Minnillo and Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls.

Jessica Alba and Beyonce topped the list in 2006 and 2007 respectively.
