WATCH: Toni teases Luis about Jessy
MANILA – Toni Gonzaga kept on teasing Luis Manzano about Jessy Mendiola when they were delivering their spiels on “ASAP” on Sunday.
The teasing began when Gonzaga started talking about the actresses who made it to the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2016 online poll, with Manzano, Jolina Magdangal and Enrique Gil beside her.
According to the partial results released by the local men's magazine last June 12, Mendiola was leading the race with actress Nadine Lustre, who was once the frontrunner, at the second spot.
Gonzaga said: “Mayroong bagong tinututukan ang mga boys dahil inaabangan ninyong lahat, lalong lalo na itong katabi ko, ang annual sexiest women in the world list sa isang sikat na men’s magazine.”
Mendiola’s sexy photos then started flashing on the screen.
“Talaga nga namang hindi natin maide-deny sa mga bikini na ang sexy niya at ang liit ng bewang niya kaya naman siya po ang frontrunner, hindi sa politics, pero this year para sa final results ng botohan. I’m sure may isang bumoto sa kanya. 'Yung katabi ko, I’m sure bumoto iyan,” Gonzaga said while looking at Manzano.
Shrugging it off, Manzano replied: “Ico-confirm ko, bumoto po ako --sa Batangas nung eleksyon.”
Just last week, Manzano and Mendiola were spotted at a mall in Mandaluyong City, where they supposedly watched a movie together.
Rumors about a romance between Manzano and Mendiola began when the actress posted on her Instagram account a photo of her with the host of "The Voice Kids."
"Salamat sa pagpapatawa sa akin everyday! Hindi ka lang semi-guwapo. Sobrang guwapo mo na kahit lahat ng guwapo sa mundo ay pag pinagsama-sama, hindi uubra sa iyo. Ikaw na talaga yan," the actress wrote as the caption.
Manzano, however, already denied that he is in a relationship with the actress.
Manzano and Mendiola are currently single. Manzano broke up with actress Angel Locsin early this year, while Mendiola has called off her relationship -- for a second time -- with actor JM de Guzman.
