Model Georgia Salpa gives her vote on FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2013, just for you Paddy Power Blog readers.
How many models does it take to change a lightbulb? If you know the answer, respect.
OK, so while I’ve been to the races and football matches (sooooo boring) I don’t pretend to know much about odds and betting.
But Paddy Power asked me to write a column on FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World Poll 2013.
Now, pretty girls in bikinis – this is an area of expertise. It seems I’m 10/1. You’ll see worse-looking long-shots this year, lads.
Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan is the 5/4 favourite to be crowned FHM’s World’s Sexiest Woman 2013. Most people will see at least two good reasons why she’ll do really well. She has a gorgeous body and isn’t afraid to flaunt it, and it’s easy to see why she’s favourite. She fits the FHM lads’ vote well.
For me, it is a three-honey race between Michelle, Mila Kunis (15/8) and Kate Upton
Michelle Keegan and Mila Kunis have more exposure in the UK, which will help them out, but there won’t be much else separating these three. I’ve a massive girlcrush on Mila Kunis, who starred in the movie Ted, and Nicole Scherzinger (5/1) was really in the limelight all year, especially on X Factor.
But Kate Upton has a far better chance. Kate is so popular at the moment she will be one of the main players. You’ve seen her Catdaddy video, right? It’s almost enough to turn a girl.
Kate is a Sports Illustrated swimwear model who is very famous in America and let’s be honest, she is incredibly hot. She has had plenty of attention in the UK and has a great chance of winning. Kate was ranked number three in AskMen’s Top 99 Women 2013 in the States and I think she can go even better in FHM’s competition.
She says she’s single too – which might be news to her sports star ‘boyfriend’ Justin Verlander. Or maybe they just don’t want us to know about it.
There were lots of people moaning about X Factor’s Tulisa on Twitter last year after she won, and plenty of people giving out about the result. Well, I think Tulisa is gorgeous but, how do I say this, maybe there were other girls who should have won it. I don’t know how she’ll do this year after all the negativity 12 months ago. The publicity from that sex tape probably gave her a bit of a push.
Laura Whitmore is an Irish girl in the running and she is 50/1. That’s a big price but will do quite well as she has got far more publicity in the last 12 months. She is absolutely gorgeous in the flesh.
As an outsider at 25/1, Cheryl Cole is always well supported (or so my male friends tell me) and won it in 2009 and in 2010 before coming second last year. I love Cheryl and she is amazing. She would definitely make it into my top 10. (Sadly, Paddy Power informs me you’re not doing each-way betting in FHM. At least that’s where the horse comparisons end).
The very curvy Kelly Brook won the award in 2005 but eight years on she is still going strong. She has done loads this year with Celebrity Juice and she has been piling in the shoots. I have seen more of her in the press this year than ever before so expect her to do well ( 20/1).
So, what about this Georgia Salpa then?!
If I came in the top 20 that would be amazing. I’d hope I can make it into the top 10 though, that would be great. I was number five last year so if I was in the mix this year that would be fabulous. Come on people, get voting.
