Los Angeles-based E! Entertainment Television included GMA star Dingdong Dantes in its Top 25 Sexiest Men of the World list.
Dantes is the only Filipino to make it to the roster put together by one of the largest and most popular networks in Hollywood with 88 million cable subscribers in the US alone, and in 600 million homes internationally. Also in the list are Los Angeles Galaxy star player David Beckham, rugby union footballer Dan Carter (New Zealand), actor Gilles Marini (France), actor and fashion model Michael Lewis (Israel) and singer Kostas Martakis (Greece). “Actually, nung nalaman ko, e, natatawa ako dahil talagang never in my wildest dreams ko naisip na mapapasama ako dito. Na-appreciate ko siya and much more that napabilang ako sa beinte-singkong taong â€˜yon, so isang karangalan sa akin â€˜yon.” said Dantes.
