Maria Ressa beats Venus Raj as Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive in the Philippines for 2010

Esquire, a men's magazine in the US, has listed down almost 200
ladies, one from every country, to form part of its "Sexiest Women Alive" list for 2010.

A lot of Miss Universe 2010 candidates made it on Esquire's list just like Miss Trinidad & Tobago LaToya Woods, Miss Albania Angela Martini, Miss Angola Jurema Ferraz, Miss
Belgium Cilou Annys, Miss Botswana Tirelo Ramasedi, Miss Ecuador Lady Mina and Miss Malaysia Nadine Ann Thomas, but for the Philippines, it's not Venus Raj, who finished 4th Runner Up in the pageant, as the sexiest woman in the country.

But she's former CNN correspondent and outgoing ABS-CBN News Head Maria Ressa. Wow, what an odd choice!

According to Esquire, Ressa who despite being small is fearless enough to write an eyewitness account of Al-Qaeda. And for them, it's sexy!

Esquire's picks for other countries include athletes, models, actresses, singers and ex-beauty queens. Among them are singer Rihanna as the sexiest in Barbados, James Bond actress Ivana Milicevic for Bosnia and Herzegovina, supermodel Gisele Bundchen for Brazil, actress Natalie Portman for Israel, Bollywood actress and former Miss World
Aishwarya Rai for India and Miss Universe 2008 Dayana Mendoza for

Philippines' Maria Ressa isn't the only odd choice in Esquire's Sexiest Women Alive 2010 list. They picked a politician in Afghanistan, an Argentine President, a First Lady in Benin, another journalist from Kazakhstan, a foreign affairs minister of Mauritania
and many more.

At least, it goes to prove that you don't really need to be an actress nor have the face and body of a model or a beauty queen for you to be
called "sexy".
