The Depth Chart: CHAMPIONSHIP DREAMS FULFILLED

MY TURN!


I was looking at my blog stats and it hit me that people are reading my wrestling articles!

Should I do a New Year article or should I do a wrestling blog?

Hmmm...

At the latter part of 2009, Sheamus won his first WWE Championship. Almost a year later, The Miz won his first WWE Championship as well when he cashed his Money in the Bank contract at a televised Raw show.  At Smackdown, Jack Swagger won the Money in the Bank contract in Wrestlemania and he cashed it almost a week later to win the World Heavyweight title. Then Kane won his second big belt after cashing his MITB contract against Rey Mysterio.

I don’t know if the first title run counts as a title run because Stone Cold Steve Austin lost and won back his title in less than 24 hours!  

So why am I saying this? Shawn Michaels has retired (unless otherwise), Batista has left, Undertaker and Triple H didn’t appear much in 2010, John Cena, Randy Orton, Edge, CM Punk, Big Show, and Sheamus have won too many titles in such a short period of time and with the current roster where star power is lacking which is why Jerry Lawler is back in the spotlight, they need to establish a couple of new stars fast!

Since the ECW Championship doesn’t matter in terms of being a big belt, here are the ten wrestlers you need to look out for in 2011. I’m probably lucky if I guess 50 percent of the guys perfectly but it should be noted that perhaps there will only be at least four guys to find their selves owning a big title.

GAME STARTS NOW!


10 MARK HENRY / I am sorry. I really do. I should be kicked in my balls for even thinking this. I chose to leave out Ted DiBiase, Even Bourne, Santino, Tyson Kidd, DH Smith, Ezekiel Jackson, Tyler Reks, most of the Nexus, the mascot formerly known as the Swagger Soaring Eagle, for this? First of all, Vince likes his big men. Second, he’s always a threat in matches that isn’t ladder matches (because no ladder can support his slowness). Third, did you notice that he has been injured for some time now? And lastly, well... as long as Mark Henry is there, he can defeat everyone because of his sheer bulk. Hell, I won’t even be surprised if Christian or numbers 3 to 9 lose to this guy!

You shouldn’t too.

If Matt Hardy, Kaval, and MVP are still in the WWE, they’ll probably be in this spot.


9 KOFI KINGSTON / I am not really a fan of his work but I’ll give this guy credit for doing well. I really enjoyed his program with Jack Swagger in-ring action-wise and perhaps he can be again a key player in those Money in the Bank matches. But I just can see him doing more in his current state. As of now, he looks like a better version of Evan Bourne because Bourne barely gets a decent ring time on Raw. Maybe a heel turn for him? That would be good but he needs to establish a Rey Mysterio-like following first before the creative team can execute this to perfection.


8 DREW MCINTYRE / His sick and sadistic image is direct and usual. It makes me think that he’s just a good-looking version of Tyler Reks. Anyway, while I can see him hold a title, I think he needs to have a great material to work with before he gets the title. Give him feuds with The Undertaker or Edge or have him win against The Big Show and Rey Mysterio. I can see this guy inheriting the Legend Killer gimmick but he should stay away from the oldies and stick with the established bets.  


7 DASHING CODY RHODES / I am loving the gimmick. I thought for sure, he’d be the forgotten member of Legacy but unlike Ted DiBiase, he managed to hold on and become more. Sure, the “pretty boy shtick” has been done overly, but has those pretty boy characters from the 1980’s and up ever win a world title? Sure, you’ll say Shawn Michaels... but try disregarding this fact for a sec. Cody should throw a tantrum and then get excited and furious just like when Hulk Hogan “hulks up” or when a random wrestler deals a Samoan with a head bump. Also, please make the Beautiful Disaster his finisher! Cross Rhodes is a generic finisher!


6 DOLPH ZIGGLER / I placed him ahead of those under him because I like the potential he has right now. He sort of reminds me of Billy Gunn with his Mr. Ass character... except that Ziggler is a better wrestler. He needs to find a way to drop the name though. The name is horrible! Dirk Diggler is awesome but Dolph Ziggler sucks! Ziggler is solid in the ring and while he is a good talker, he also has heat magnet Vickie Guerrero accompanying him. Perhaps his run with the big belt could happen with Vickie giving him the opportunities since she’s a Smackdown special consultant to the GM. Maybe Ziggler could feud with Edge since he’s Vickie Guerrero’s former flame?


5 DANIEL BRYAN / I am more than certain that indy wrestlers shouldn’t dream of the WWE if they are impatient and if they can understand the guidelines. But hey, DB made The Miz stand out and DB gave Michael Cole the “I favor ____” character which gave Cole a character... and yet DB is now stuck in a love angle with the Bella Twins... and he is not mad or anything so that means he’s good, right!?! The patience and respect to the rules could be tools for DB stick and perhaps win a championship. I just wish he’ll move to Smackdown because the matches there are longer.


4 JOHN MORRISON / The guy is a championship waiting to happen. He has the looks and his Parkour movesets that Michael Cole aggressively pimps makes him unique. Everyone has a beef in his not-so-great mic skills but I don’t think that’s a problem. He is like those drugged-up rock stars that zone out. I think he needs to stick with one or two finishers. When I see a large fan, I go near it and I mimic his slomo entrance. I don’t look pretty when I do that...  


3 ALBERTO DEL RIO / Mexican JBL is awesome! While I’d rather have a mascot than a creepy-looking ring announcer, the way Del Rio is booked is good. He also has the skills to pull off his persona although he reminds a bit of Carlito’s rookie year. I don’t know how well he can work with big men but he’ll have fun with Smackdown’s wide array of good workers. He’ll have to name his cross armbreaker finisher because it is cool but he also needs another finisher that’s not a submission move. Perhaps the backstabber?


2 CHRISTIAN / Oh look. Here’s Christian. He should win a big belt. Hell, he should get a title shot! The problem with Captain Charisma is that he went to TNA. I think Vince McMahon has something with regards to those guys. However I think 2011 is the time when Christian gets pushed. It’s make or break time for him. He has the ability to make people listen to him. He is a good worker as well. With Chris Jericho out indefinitely (since he’s touring), maybe they can “heel” Christian up and give him Y2J’s role. A Money in the Bank win could seal a good face turn but for a heel turn, WWE should grant us a Edge versus Christian match.


1 WADE BARRETT / 2010 was a great year for this rookie. He has the size and the swagger. He is a good talker and he brawls well. Barrett won NXT and used his reward (a title shot) against Randy Orton. He had a highly-publicized feud with John Cena and leading the Nexus, he became WWE’s fresh face up top of their food chain. With his ouster as Nexus leader, his growth could stop. He could rejoin the Nexus now led by CM Punk... or exalt revenge to his former allies by siding with Cena. Making him a face could destroy his main event standing though.


Barrett has the best chance for winning the belt but I hope Christian wins one. Hopefully these wrestlers won’t have a crappy 2011.

Actually, I hope they don’t join the future endeavours club.

Happy 2011!

Game over!

The Statmonkey of the Day: December 30, 2010

He still is the triple double monster! 


16 years in the business, this former second pick overall is still getting the job done.

And just when you think J-Kidd is old, he gives you a triple double.

Jason Kidd is the Statmonkey of the Day!

With the Dallas Mavericks reeling from the injury of Dirk Nowitzki, Kidd played like his 1994 Dallas version to bring in 12 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. Unfortunately, the Mavs lost in the battle of Texas squads, which basically means they lost against the league-leading San Antonio Spurs, 93 to 99.

Dwight Howard played also well that day as well as Wilson Chandler, Marcus Camby, and Amar’e Stoudemire.

Game over.

Chicken Rice War RULES!!!

I have been waiting for a copy of this movie for a long, long while now! 


When I was working at ABC 5 (before it became TV5), our bosses were livid to push films from other cultures to Philippine TV. Actually, our bosses were livid to push non-mainstream entertainment. This thought fits the “Iba Tayo” (We’re different) brand personality of the network. This was when a show called Dokyu was produced. Dokyu is a show that gives amateur and professional independent filmmakers a chance to air their works. And then there’s ABC Cinema. The movie block invites selected filmmakers to critic various films from all parts of the world.

ABC Cinema was the avenue for me to see Singaporean Cinema.

While I saw a trickle of their works, two films stood out for me – I’m With Stupid and Chicken Rice War. I’m With Stupid is a very smart film based from stupid kids. I laugh at parts but I never took the flick seriously. I am a fan of Chicken Rice War though. For years I have been searching for a copy. For every person I know who’s going to Singapore, I always remind them of my yearning.

But none of them would give me a copy of the film.

You see, in ABC5, It’s easy for us to preview Betacam tapes. Betacam tapes are old school compared to the current DVC or Mini DV tapes but just like the latter mentioned, it is used to air broadcast quality footages.

Having a betacam preview machine in your house is stupid... unless you own an editing suite.

Anyway, years later, I notice that there are a lot of movies in the internet. Actually, I just re-watched Tikoy Aguiluz’ Segurista. Michelle Aldana was hot in that movie but I loved the story of the film more than anything. The film was sexy but it wasn’t sleazy.

And then I typed Chicken Rice War... and here it is.

To summarize and to not expose the story too much, this is Singapore’s version of Romeo and Juliet. There are two families that own two opposing chicken rice stalls and their kids are in love with each other.

So this is merely a shitty Romeo and Juliet inspired movie?

Not quite...

Just click the vids and watch.

Perhaps the next step is for me to score a quality copy of the movie.

The Statmonkey of the Day: December 29, 2010

Cute. 


Zach Randolph is the Statmonkey of the Day!

In the 98 to 100 squeaker win of the Sacramento Kings against the Memphis Grizzlies, Randolph scored 35 points, 17 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

There are alleged plans to ship Randolph to Detroit in exchange of one of their shooters and slashers.

Did you know that last season’s second pick overall is Hasheem Thabeet?

I just remembered him.

Please use him.

Anyway, Al Horford, Al Jefferson, Steve Nash, and Josh Smith were amongst the better players of this day.

Game over.

My Amnesia Girl - The Review



You know your relationship has seriously evolved when you can easily fart in front of your girlfriend.

Yes, you read it. It seems disgusting, right?

Another disgusting scenario is your girlfriend forcing you to watch a sappy Tagalog movie.

Yes, you read it. It seems disgusting... right?

John Lloyd Cruz returns to the big screen to star alongside Toni Gonzaga in My Amnesia Girl. Directed by Cathy Molina, this Star Cinema flick gives light to memory loss.

Or did they?

When I saw my friends Gelo, Edson, Dulay, and Froi in Trinoma, I was jealous because they watched Narnia (I saw Narnia a few weeks later). At least Cindy didn’t make me watch Twilight or those Harry Potter movies because that would be ghastly.

Let’s spoil the shit out of you people. Sure, the overcheesiness of the story could either make you laugh, make you feel sweet, and make you hurl to death. The film basically enumerated all the cheesy pickup lines that single men and boyfriends who want to look sappy could still use to make them charming!

Para kang tae.

Kasi kahit kailan di ko kayang paglaruan.

Word.

Now there are a bunch of good points for people to watch Pinoy movies. Believe me, this movie is 50 percent better than most American romantic comedies I saw in 2010. I watched that Drew Barrymore/Justin Long movie and that Aaron Eckhart movie and it was an ordeal. At least the comedy here is neat. Also, at least the situations seen in the movie hits closest to people’s hearts because of the Pinoy setting.

One major qualm I had in the movie is that it looked like a gooey spotfest. The story is predictable and minus the punchlines, it could be a gut-wretching ride. I have I said that already? Am I already stating the obvious? The movie is such a hit or miss flick I don’t know if I want to love it or hate it.

If you envisioned the ending while watching the middle part of the movie... does that mean the movie is unpredictable?

Hell no.

John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga starred in the movie and while they both delivered commendable performances, it seems as if they didn’t own their roles. Actually Toni was commendable when vulnerable and mad but the over-ickyness of John Lloyd’s character is boner-shrinking. While you feel for Toni when she was trying hard to keep her secret and you could respect John Lloyd's character to do good things to make his guilt disappear, the crappy sequences is vomit-inducing. The things he did in the middle parts were cheesy and if that made every man try that shit on their beaus, then they should get their masculinity fixed. The kiddie birthday party/ prom scene was too long and too corny for me and to the other people who barely laughed at their antics during those moments. John Lloyd's character was awesome at the start where he hooked up with various chicks with defects! How quickly he changed from cool to fool!!! The fact that at some points Carlos Agassi and Joross Gamboa outshine John Lloyd means they failed to handle JLC’s character properly. Joross playing the snarky and sarcastic friend is funny. Carlos wasn’t really that funny but the running gag where he is always introducing himself to women through his abs is sick in a good way. Bea Saw was also good as Toni's best friend. 

You feel for John Lloyd when he played a overzealous maltreated lackey but you want to slap his face when he becomes overly cheesy.  

But on a non-boner-shrinking note, Toni looked hot during her almost sex scene.

Just saying.

All in all, My Amnesia Girl is entertaining but be wary that there are parts that you wished you didn't see. 

And congratulations for exposing all the crappy pickup lines men use to look cute. 

I know it doesn't work but guys still use them just to look less manly. 

Game over.

Party Poppers

We magically transported ourselves to free food and booze heaven.


My officemates and I gate crashed another unit’s Christmas party last December 22, 2010.

Well, we weren’t really gate crashing per se since they invited us.

Because they have too much food, too much booze, and too little stomachs, they brought us to “consume” their food to eliminate waste. Apart from eating their grub, we provided “entertainment” to make it a superb Christmas party.

This event flashed me back when I was a college student. Evilbrain and Novice were then normal Legal Management students and they invited Geist and me to their somewhat-Christmas party. I believe this happened after the Paskuhan party in UST. Geist was majoring in Political Science while I was unloading my brain cells on matters concerning Communication Arts.

I won’t tell the year because it just hit me that I am nearing 30!

Evilbrain and Novice didn’t throw the party... their lady classmates did. They rented a room where there is a pool table, videoke, and booze. It was awesome! I noticed a particular girl was singing Yoyoy Villame’s epic tune Buchikik at least 12 times but for some insane reason, no one tried to stop her and instead we joined her disobey rationality. I don’t know if I got their names but I’m pretty sure I thanked them for their superb munchies.

I remember telling Geist “So this is how a GRO feels like”.

That event was so awesome!

In this version, I know them because they pretty much sit near me. I box them out from the place we print when we are low in paper and I always think to "accidentally" delete their names when their scripts are printing and I am in a hurry (I made this sentence to incite comic goodness). It was also a reunion of sorts because I saw a bunch of ex-officemates. The old and the new jammed to the songs of acoustic show band music. It was a fun moment. I noticed a bunch of things I won’t notice on a regular day.

Easen Ragma documented the event and made a video. It is nice. It reminded me of the opening credits of Saturday Night Live. The video started with Athan doing his usual magic trick in front of unsuspecting people.


You can see me gyrate as well!

Game over!

The L-Train


LaMarcus Aldridge is again the Statmonkey of the Day!

The Portland Trail Blazers star failed to help his team claim a win versus the Denver Nuggets to the tune of 77 to 95, but he claimed 18 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 7 blocks.

Playing well also in that day were Dwyane Wade, Gilbert Arenas, Derrick Rose, and Toronto Raptors rookie and former North Carolina standout Ed Davis.

Casting spell to casting spellers



I haven’t really been playing video games.

Part of me hates it.

Part of me loves it.

This video makes me happy because if people really do this, I think I live better than them.

Because if these kinds of people have more money lived more awesome than me... then that sucks!

Chris Paul has been a Statmonkey bridesmaid for some time now but he will not be denied today!

In a losing effort against the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves, Paul had 22 points, 6 rebounds, 13 assists, and 5 steals in their 98 to 113 loss!

Dwight Howard, David Lee, Jason Kidd, and Blake Griffin also had good games for their respective teams.

The make or break audition

Perhaps ONE of the most successful shows on Philippine TV during the 2000's. 


I just saw this on my officemate’s laptop and this was the role that made Marian Rivera what she is now. 

There are roles that can make and break people. During the early 2000's, Epi Quizon gained fame because of his role as the young Markova. Robin Padilla's bad boy image cemented his status as one of Philippine Cinema's biggest draws. In TV land, Judy Ann Santos gained success early in her career after playing a bunch of roles as the loser in life that you want to root for. 

Casting is such an important facet of telling a story. Whether it's TV, film, and even radio, you need to make people feel something with the story, the character, and the setting they are in. Sometimes the supporting cast outshine the lead roles. When this happens, you need to find a way for these actors to gain steam. Keempee de Leon's Bahay Mo Ba To character Harold had two spin-offs (Bongga Ka Star and Kung Ako Ikaw) while Joey Marquez has been doing his shtick since his Palibhasa Lalake days.  

I just found a bunch of actresses that tried hard to land the role of the legendary Marimar but if you look at it, Marian’s mestiza looks, gyrations, registry, and swagger are enough to give the others a humongous mismatch. Allegedly, Angel Locsin would have been the first option to don the frizzy hair, the sexy duster, the mangy dog Pulgoso, and the seashells but her move out of GMA opened the role for others. Marian was fresh off a mother role (as Ian de Leon’s wife) in the Jennylyn Mercado/Nadine Samonte starrer, Super Twins. Before that she had a bunch of daytime soaps... just after Daisy Siete I think.

Marimar is a worldwide hit. At the peak of Mexican Telenovelas, there was this barrio lass and she had a life filled with misfortunes. She likes to talk to his dog (her dog answers mentally) and she has this thing where she goes on a trance and then talks to the audience as if she’s doing a monologue. She is in love with Sergio Santibanez, a striker from some fictional Spanish football team. When her life was destroyed by Angelika and her minions, she vowed revenge to everyone that gave her pain... and that also included Sergio.

Marimar was one of the important shows in the Philippines in the 1990’s because it managed to destroy the norm during those times. Back then, primetime was all about weekly sitcoms, dramas, and movies. The PBA was still on top of the ratings as well. However, a daily series that got everyone talking trashing the threshold created by then-powerful TV Patrol was enough to change the landscape of Philippine TV. Thalia and Eduardo Capetillo had a couple of visits in the Philippines where they would do sold-out concerts. Bubble Gang even spoofed the series with Ogie Alcasid playing Sergio with a bunch of her in his chest and Michael V playing his best impersonation of Corazon




Thalia would do a remake of Ogie Alcasid’s Nandito Ako and would sing a catchy novelty tune called Chika Lang.

By the way, did you know that Marimar was also a remake of a 1977 telenovela called La Venganza

Because of the success of this primetime soap, daily dramas like Mara Clara and in a smaller extent, Villa Quintana (a GMA soap which stars Keempee de Leon and Donna Cruz) jumpstarted the current primetime viewing habits of Filipinos.  

This is why a bunch of actresses would go all out to move to the groove of that familiar Salsa-like tune. Dingdong Dantes, a familiar face in primetime because of his work in Atlantika and the Encantadia series, was tasked to do the reinvented version of Sergio Santibanez. He is also tasked to help the christened Marimar adjust to her role nicely. A no-namer could be overwhelmed with the attention and him being a veteran leading man, could help lessen the load. The problem the management faced was who among these beauties can do their best impression of Marimar.




In all obviousness, Marian Rivera was the only one capable to bring out the best from that role. She was a fresh face that rose from supporting roles that went all out to get the role. She defeated a ton of bets from both networks. If you look at some of the girls involved, they didn’t prepare as much as she did. She wasn’t pushed down to our throats. The only publicity Marian got was her audition that was converted to various file formats and is searched and played back constantly online. The heartfelt tears Marian gave then when she was thanking everyone for this one-of-a-kind opportunity made everyone fall in love with her.

And the aftermath? Well, I think we all know about the aftermath by now.

Game over.

Damn Year in 2011!

It ain't over until it's over. 


I’m trying to win a NBA Fantasy League.

The problem is... I can’t find a break.

With a little over three months to go, I am 2000 points behind the league leader. I blame a lot of my team’s problems (LA MESA DAMN) with the injuries, the inconsistencies, and my failure to detect that Evan Turner, DeMarcus Cousins, and Wesley Johnson are statistical bonershrinkers.

At the start of 2011, I am launching an aggressive campaign to improve my lineup to hopefully improve the state I am in at the moment. With the exception of Kevin Garnett, I am willing to trade for better talent.

I am playing to get either Pau Gasol or Blake Griffin from their respective teams. I am also interested in getting Russell Westbrook and Rudy Gay. I just don’t know how to get these guys without compromising my squad.

I have sent an intention to get either Gasol or Griffin and it could cost me Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Luis Scola, and Kyle Lowry. Scola has been consistent for my squad while Lowry is surprising me with good performances. Bryant and Duncan are good but I need a couple of players who can play 35 minutes and more. I am waiting for the Danny Granger/ Al Harrington trade to work.

98 JOSE CALDERON / RAPTORS
99 CHARLIE VILLANUEVA / PISTONS
100 MIKE DUNLEAVY / PACERS

John Wall is at number 101 for playing a little over than 50 percent of the Wizards’ games. Chauncey Billups of the Nuggets and Brandon Roy of the Blazers were left out the rankings because of their injuries.

I am certain that an increase could happen with the decisions I made.

Its crunch time...

... And I’m bracing it.

Game over.

Who COULD grace the covers of FHM Philippines in 2011?

Could this be a possibility? 

I don’t know if half of these girls will be in FHM Philippines. Hell, if I see three of them in 2011, then that would be awesome. You see, I am going to enumerate the likely people that have the guts and capability to grace the covers of the most successful men’s magazine in the Philippines today.

The attention and the fanfare these girls get once they posed for FHM are phenomenal. Sure, there are those who failed to score a launching movie but the probability of that happening is crap. Assunta de Rossi, Maui Taylor, Diana Zubiri, Francine Prieto, Aubrey Miles, and a collection of others used the magazine as a launch pad for their careers.

Angelica Panganiban, Katrina Halili, Camille Prats, Christine Reyes, and Angel Locsin are some of actresses that used FHM to do away with their teen, goody-two-shoes roles for mature ones.

Angel in particular used FHM as a way to re-introduced herself to the public.

While I don’t think Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu, Andi Eigenmann, KC Concepcion, Maja Salvador, and Erich Gonzales could do FHM yet... as well as Rhian Ramos, Heart Evangelista, Kris Bernal, Glaiza de Castro, and Bela Padilla, here are the people I think could do wonders if they see FHM action this 2011.  

Although the names mentioned can be a welcome surprise to their fans.

For my pics, I chose several factors like their hotness levels, whether or not they can pose within limited wardrobes, how FHM could get them to their covers, and how sought after are they. Also, I don't think FHM would ask the cover girls of 2010 to again grace their covers in 2011 because that is just overexposing them. 

I just grabbed the best pics they have on the internet.

GAME STARTS NOW!
  

10 GWEN ZAMORA / She was an amusing shocker after debuting in the fantasy series Grazilda and then she became part of the cast of the popular sketch show Bubble Gang. In the Metro Manila Film Festival, she’s paired up with Vic Sotto as the newest Faye (it would be creepy if his son’s soon-to-be-wife would continue to play as Vic’s onscreen wife) and that is surely a career boost! She is a fresh face with a potential to do big in the business given the roles she would take. Perhaps the most possible concept for her cover could either be tame and less revealing or sexy and jaw-dropping. Whatever it is, she’s sought after.






9 GEORGINA WILSON / With the rise of Solenn and the influx of Brapanese models on TV today, perhaps once Georgina Wilson decides to join show business, she'll decide to grace FHM. Sure, we know her as the girl Richard Gutierrez once had romantic relations with, but she's stylish and there is an aura in her that would make a great lifestyle host. At this point she has seen a bit of exposure through her Star World Station ID appearance. That feminine version of Manny Pacquiao shtick could be racist (because they think all Pinoys know how to box), but hey, Georgina as a boxer is cute. 



8 IYA VILLANIA / Again the fact that she doesn’t want to pose for FHM and yet she posed for a Tanduay calendar puzzles me. I think a FHM cover is better if you look at it. There are a bunch of hosts that covered the mag like Tisha Silang, Cheska Garcia, Phoemela Baranda, Donita Rose, among others. I think if she really does want her career to level up, I think she needs to do a cover that she could be comfortable in. Now I don’t think she’ll be able to do nasty, ultra-kinky pics because she has the potential to be the next Pia Guanio if you look at the bigger picture. Oh, and by the way, Pia Guanio once did FHM although not as a cover during the early 2000’s.






7 RYZA CENON / It seem as if 2011 is the year for Ryza Cenon. Her career was shaky (As did most Starstruck 2 finalists) but perhaps those supporting roles will be over if she does well in Machete. I mean, have you seen her segment in that GMA new shows’ TVC? She was hot there and sharing the spotlight with the likes of Dingdong, Marian, and Richard is make or break time for Ryza! She is ready to take the big step and people are supporting her. I can’t really see her going to the Katrina/Iwa route but expect her to find ways for her star to explode. I think a FHM cover could do well for her but merely posing in the skimpiest swimsuits won’t cut the deal. A concept that works vital for her should be vital.




6 MARICAR REYES / The tale of two hotties – one screamed foul and while one kept mum. In the end, Hayden Kho managed to weasel his way out of persecution (because the jury allegedly thought it would be impossible for Katrina to not know that she’s being filmed). Yes, letting him off easy sucks but at least Maricar still managed to shrug off the scandal because she didn’t really make fuzz out of it. Actually if you look at it, Paris Hilton and the rest of the Hollywood actress who got themselves in this bind walked away with more projects and more paparazzi trailing their asses. Fortunately she is not just a lovely face with a scandal. She has been noticed by a lot of viewers for her critically-acclaimed portrayals (especially the one where she acted like a taong grasa) and maybe it is time for her to grace the FHM covers.



5 IZA CALZADO / Who knew she could be hot? I mean, she’s beautiful but before Beauty Queen, I didn’t know she could do hot roles. I mean, remember the billboard where there were three giant-sized girls in swimwear??? Cars could fly out the Timog flyover by looking at that! But perhaps since Iza has this Indie something in her (check out Urbandub’s Evidence MTV) and she thought it would be a good idea for her to do that role. Beauty Queen is an awesome show and it possibly saved Iza from doing mother roles. Perhaps FHM can also do something to further prolong it? That is a possibility.  



4 CHRISTINE REYES / After a year and a half of absence I think it’s time for Christine Reyes to return. Save the Angel Locsin and the Iwa/Bangs issues, the familiar faces found little exposure this year. Christine is still controversial and current. People should thank her primetime shows for this. But then I think she owes FHM another “tour of duty”. This time, I think she needs to spice up her cover. We have seen her in bikini and in awesome poses but I believe she still has aces on her sleeve.



3 SOLENN HEUSAFF / Part of the success of Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Edition is that goddess who made a lot of her castaways (including the host according to reports) ogle. This prompted the model who doesn’t want to become an actress to gain fame and yeah... become an actress. FHM should exploit this. I really don’t know how she’ll do as an actress and I bet she’ll probably end up as a good host for some chic show but at this point, they should exploit her fame while it’s hot. Recently we discovered that she has the ability to sing. We know she can model. Maybe there's a possibility that she can become an award-winning actress!  






2 ANNE CURTIS / Until now I can’t believe on how low her rank got in the 2010 poll. We have seen her GSM Blue commercials and billboards from other products, as well as in Showtime where at one point scoured viewers very aggressively. But for some reason it barely mattered on whomever “mass voted” for their respective bets. I am not saying she should be a Top 5 person but certainly Anne Curtis is a Top 10. With that said, I think it will be cool for her to grace the FHM covers. She’ll probably improve on her 2010 standing and it could give her the publicity that she’ll need when she returns to primetime drama. While her hosting and modelling gigs continue to be outstanding, it’s about time for her to return to the small screen. Or... in maybe she’ll use this to promote a new movie, since it has been ages since she last appeared on one.



1 MARIAN RIVERA / There are various reasons why this shouldn’t happen. For starters, Marian Rivera doesn’t need FHM. Fact is, she’s not an up and coming starlet trying to make her way to show business but a superstar with a very successful career. However, she’s perhaps the most anticipated actress to lord the pages of the mag. Ever since she did the ground-breaking Marimar, alongside her other works like Dyesebel, Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang, Darna, and Endless Love, FHM has been courting her. Fact is FHM had a ton of opportunities to get her. FHM could have tied up with the show that she will star to get the show and the magazine major attention. If they don’t want costumes and motifs, they could have “X-dealed” with Tadyang, which was a (kind of) remake of the film which starred 70’s hottie Vivian Velez. The Dongyan tandem probably has run its course but Marian doing solo isn’t a bad thing. She will definitely star on a sizzling series and FHM could jump on this opportunity because that and THAT alone could be their first and only ticket to make Marian grace their pages.


I think a bunch of returnees I haven’t said earlier could return like Angelica, Katrina, Bubbles Paraiso (although she has yet to be a cover girl), Maggie Wilson, and Nina Jose. A bunch of newbies could also make their way like those that were mentioned, General Luna, Princess Ryan, and other ladies I don’t know.

Anyway if you want comment or question these picks, feel free.

Game over.
