What is really Dingdong Dantes' rank on E! Entertainment's 25 Sexiest Men? When Yahoo Philippines released the list, he ranked sixth. It's one hell of a shocker. Come to think of it. He outranked elite Asian stars (i.e Edison Chen and Takeshi Kaneshiro) and even internationally renowned singer, Enrique Iglesias who turned out to be waaay down the list. As if these were not enough to bloat his ego, PEP issued a statement with regards to Dingdong's real rank: 3rd!
So, which is which?
If the latter turns out to be the official rank.. MAN. I gotta say, 'KUDOS! To Filipino hunks!' This might mean Dingdong saying goodbye to Pinoy Showbiz and move to greener pastures: HOLLYWOOD , baby!
Don't you think it's ironic? Out there, foreigners think he's oozing with sex appeal enough to put him on the Top Ten meanwhile in his native country he's way below the list at 31st? Now he can shove and perhaps slap the list on their faces when this officially gets out on E!. Imagine the massive public exposure; millions and millions of subscribers finally getting to know he exists. E! is big abroad, a lot more like our network giants here.
It's time for them to know we have good-looking and talented artists here (i.e Charice Pempengco) and they're also worth the buzz.
For hunk stalkers out there interested to see the list, I took the liberty of putting it here. If an official list comes out from E!, fret not, I'll make sure to make a follow-up post.
