Filipino actor Dingdong Dantes ranked third in E! Television’s 25 Sexiest Men of the World this year. The announcement was made by Mr. Brian Potter, rights and clearance supervisor of E!, during the Let’s Celebrate concert of Dingdong and Marian in Los Angeles, California.
Nakatanggap ng tawag ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ngayong umaga, December 7, bilang update sa concert nina Dingdong Dantes at Marian Rivera, Let’s Celebrate sa Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles.
Kagabi, December 6, ginanap ang naturang concert at isa itong tagumpay dahil sa dami ng taong mga nanood. Kung may 6,000 ang capacity ng Shrine Auditorium dahil sa laki nito, nasa more or less 4,000 daw ang mga nanood ng show.
Wala rin daw nakapigil sa dalawa sa pagbibigay ng magandang show kahit pa naka-cast pa rin ang isang paa ni Marian. Well-applauded daw ang number kung saan naka-wheelchair si Marian at pumasok din si Dingdong na naka-wheelchair at kumanta sila. Naging special guests ng dalawa sina Teri Onor at ang La Diva na binubuo nina Jonalyn Viray, Aicelle Santos, at Maricris Garcia.
Nanood din ang Consul General na si Ms. Marijo Bernardo Aragon.
SEXIEST MEN OF THE WORLD. Sa latter part ng show ay in-announce ang official ranking ni Dingdong sa E!’ Television’s Sexiest Men of the World.
Contrary to earlier reports that Dingdong Dantes ranked sixth, E! Television announced that the Filipino actor actually ranked much higher—No. 3! The announcement was made by Mr. Brian Potter, Rights Clearances Supervisor of E!. Soccer superstar David Beckham topped the list.
Bukod kay Mr. Potter, dumating din sa Shrine Auditorium para manood ng Let’s Celebrate concert nina Dingdong at Marian sina Dan Railey, executive producer; Charlene Sakoda, segment producer; at iba pang staff ng E!
Pagkatapos i-announce ni Mr. Potter na si Dingdong ang No. 3 sa ranking ng 25 Sexiest Men of the World, ipinalabas ang feature ng E! sa 25 Sexiest Men of the World na unang napanood sa United Kingdom, ang bansa ni David Beckham.
Sa speech ni Mr. Potter ay ito raw ang sinabi niya kay Dingdong: “It is overwhelming to see the tremendous support that they are giving to you here. E! made a very good choice to put you as the third sexiest men on the world that you rightfully deserve.”
Sinabi rin daw ni Mr. Potter na ang feature episode nilang 25 Sexiest Men of the World na ipinalabas sa UK ang highest rating ng E!. Naka-schedule ipalabas ang naturang feature sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo, kabilang na ang Pilipinas.
Sa lahat ng ito, “overwhelming” daw ang pakiramdam ni Dingdong sa saya at importansiyang natanggap niya mula sa E! Television at sa naging mainit na pagtanggap sa kanilang show ni Marian sa Los Angeles.
It was PEP which first reported Dingdong’s inclusion in E!’s list of 25 Sexiest Men of the World. (Click HERE to read related story.) It came just a few weeks after Dingdong brought the house down by stripping to his undies in Blackout, Bench’s denim and underwear fashion show held at the Araneta Coliseum last July. Dingdong was one of the most applauded celebrities that night, which somehow confirmed his status as one of the hottest men in Philippine showbiz.
But obviously, it was not only the Filipinos who noticed Dingdong’s “hotness.” E!, an international cable network, found out about the Filipino actor and decided to include him their annual sexiest list.
Dingdong is the first Filipino to be included in E!’s Sexiest Men of the World, and he is also the highest-ranked Asian this year.
Sa ngayon, hinihintay pa ng PEP ang kumpletong list ng E!’s 25 Sexiest Men of the World.
