Dingdong Dantes Surprised To Be Included In Traveller's Digest List Of The World's Handsome Men

DINGDONG DANTES was pleasantly surprised when he learned that he was chosen by Traveller’s Digest as the model for Quezon City, which is number seven in their survey of the 10 Cities with the World’s Best Looking Men 2013. It showed Dingdong’s photo with the following write up: “Just check out much-loved Filipino actor Dingdong Dantes. But though Quezon City is a few miles from the coast (it’s near Manila), it is the hometown of Dingdong Dantes and the hub for much of the Philippines’ entertainment industry, which gives credence to its nickname City of the Stars.”

Other celebrities included in the list are Colin Farrell (representing Dublin, Ireland), Kwon Sang-woo (from Seoul, South Korea) and Enrique Iglesias (from Madrid, Spain).

“I was surprised because I didn’t expect that I will be included in that list. Pero kung anuman ang dahilan, I am proud na kahit paano ay nai-represent ko ang ating bansa sa listahan, much more ang isang lugar kung saan ako ipinanganak at tahanan ng GMA, ang Quezon City.”

And what can his girlfriend Marian Rivera say about this? “Syempre, proud ako sa kanya. Masaya talaga kami dahil sa sunud-sunod na magaganda ang mga nangyayari at dumarating sa amin.”

As we all know, Dingdong and Marian have been proclaimed as the Primetime King and Queen of GMA Network. Marian is now also very busy promoting her movie with Ai Ai de las Alas, “Kung Fu Divas”, that opens in theatres on October 3. Dingdong, in turn, is in a new TV show, “Genesis”, that will replace “My Husband’s Lover”, and in a new movie, “She’s The One”, with Bea Alonzo, that opens on October 16.
