Kim Chiu, Xian Lim lead nominees for Philippines' Hottest Men & Women 2013

Kim Chiu led among women, while Xian Lim dominated the men during the "nomination round" for this blog's search for the Hottest Men and Women in the Philippines for the Year 2013.

Back in March, I asked you to nominate for up to 10 men and 10 women who you think were both "hit" and "hot" the previous year.

The TOP 100 NOMINEES for each category will advance to the next round.

Emerging as the top favorite choices or being nominated the most are Xian Lim among the men and Kim Chiu among women.

The next round will be called as the "Qualification Round" where a poll will be opened to determine who among those 100 nominees will continue (only 56 will move to the next round, the Group Stage).

Since World Cup is coming, I've decided to do our annual search the World Cup style. After the Group Stage, the Round of 16 will be next (Top 2 from each group will battle against each other), followed by the Quarter-Finals (Top 8), the Semi-Finals (Top 4) and ultimately, the Finals (Top 2).

Exciting isn't it?

For now, wait for the poll in our Qualification Round to open very soon and see who else made it to the Top 100 nominees. (I'm almost through finalizing the list.)

As I stated in my blog post before, the Top 10 men and women mentioned above will be given bonus points in the next round to recognize that they garnered the most votes during the nomination period. There's actually 11 girls listed there because there was a tie in 10th place between Julia Montes and Toni Gonzaga.

We're still in the early stage of the competition and it's not yet a guarantee that the next Hottest Man and Woman will come from those top nominees. But at least we know who the early frontrunners are.

The current PH's Hottest Man and Woman titleholders are Daniel Matsunaga and KC Concepcion. Before them, they were Phil Younghusband and Angel Locsin.
