Taiwan's version of men's magazine FHM has announced its "2009 Top 100 Sexiest Ladies", and the winner for the third year straight was Taiwan's top supermodel Lin Chi Ling (林志玲). The winner was chosen after a six-week poll in which fans could vote online for their favourites. The runner-up in the poll was pop diva Jolin Tsai (蔡依林, pinyin: Cài Yīlín), also for the second year running.
The 34-year old Lin Chi Ling started her modelling career back in 1999, and recently began an acting career with a role in John Woo's hit movie Red Cliff. As well as her good looks she's famous for her long legs - she was once voted having the "sexiest legs in Taiwan" - and her high-pitched childlike voice. She's also more than just a pretty face, majoring in not one, but two subjects (Economics and Western Art History) at the University of Toronto.
I'd like to provide a link to the complete top 100 list, but can't navigate my way around the Taiwan FHM website to find it. I can say that Megan Fox was number three, and another Taiwanese model, the well-endowed Wang Si Ping (王思平) was voted fourth sexiest. The top 10, their number of votes, and their ranking the previous year in brackets, were as follows:
1. Lin Chi Ling - 55,182 (last year #1)
2. Jolin Tsai - 50,719 (#2)
3. Megan Fox - 47,229 (#3)
4. Wang Si Ping - 45,313 (new)
5. Alice (艾莉丝, or in pinyin: Ailìsī) - 40,403 (#27)
6. Wang Yin Ping (王尹平) - 39,713 (new)
7. Sonia Sui (隋棠) - 38,159 (#4)
8. Janel Tsai (蔡淑臻) - 37,635 (#17)
9. Wu Ya Xin (吴亚馨) - 34,627 (new)
10. Patty Hou (侯佩岑) - 30,326 (#6)
