Padilla said the FHM cover was not about baring her body but celebrating her "humble success" as she made the transition from swimsuit pageant contestant to actress to sportscaster to a writer and now to a cover girl.
"When you say FHM cover, it's not just about being sexy, or baring your body," said Padilla, a former contestant in Slimmer's Miss Bikini Philippines 2008 (where she won Miss Photogenic).
"It's also about establishing certain success. With this cover, I just want to somehow celebrate the humble success that I was able to achieve from being an actress transitioning to a sportscaster to a writer and all those."
Aside from hooking up with the nation's most charismatic sideline reporter, the magazine staff also "ate a 65-inch pizza (which we found out wasn't so easy to do), compiled Senator Miriam's Senator Miriam's greatest hits, and took a look at the prettiest kicks available today, just to name a few.
