Finally, the quest is coasting home to the climax when the Sexiest Man and Woman shall be unveiled. Making the top ten is as good as going all the way even when the prizes will go the way of the top three winners.
The latest development has seen Benjamin Joseph and Nadia Buari taking their bow, wth the top ten emerging for the final lap. For the duo, it was like an handwriting on the wall as they have been tottering on the edge of ‘drop zone’ for weeks now.
How they stand.
Yul Edochie: Yul hasn’t got anything to worry about almost from the beginning of the ‘quest’. The first spot for him has been a sort of birthright.
Ramsey Nouah: Ramsey is still on second but for him to remain so or move up, he will all the help he can get. Shaking at 2nd.
Benson Okonkwo: Benson started as a low shot who is beginning to riding home like a prince in shinning armor. Each week has been an eventful one. Holding on to 3rd,
Pope Odowondo: There hasn’t been much separating Pope from Benson until a couple of weeks back when he let slip on his hold, thus allowing Benson a thrust forward. 4th place still.
Uti Nwachukwu: Uti always looked like a trouble brewing. Now as we come to the next phase he has overtaken Frank Artus, who is looking more shaky everyday. Uti is now 5th
Frank Artus: The Ghanaian star is practically living on the edge after having pushed to the 3rd spot and then finding himself on 6th now.
Ali Nuhu: Ali has been the quiet one, though, not without some measure of strength pushing him along. This gut seems to have a faithful follower-ship that don’t give up easily. 7th place not bad.
Van Vicker: Another Ghanaian that started like a train ready to devour everything along its path, but somehow lost the will to fight. He started on 2nd, 3rd but now chilling at 8th
Odunlade Adekola: The only Yoruba star left in the ‘quest’ and this may turn out to be a strength rather than a weakness but whichever way it swings, a couple of months is all that is there to see. On 9th.
Mike Ezuruonye: Mike was looking like a guy on his way out a couple of weeks back but by some touch of genius he is still in the reckoning. Last man in at 10th.
Tonto Dikeh: Tonto is now hanging on to the first place with all the tenacity she can muster because the next person to her is breathing hot down her neck.
Stephanie Okereke: Stephanie keeps missing shooting off Tonto by hairsbreadth but yet nothing missing her in her range. The ding-dong continues between the two. Nevertheless Stephanie remains 2nd.
Ebube Nwabo: Still keeping her 3rd spot even though Yvonne looks to be having bad intention week in, week out about her. The duo are also having a tussle of sort.
Yvonne Nelson: Yvonne is still at 4th but very restless. Though she lost her grip when she moved to 2nd at a point but she’s coming back so strong again.
Angela Okorie: Angela has the funniest story among the lots. At a point she was put up for eviction, then surviving it, she seemed to develop a phobia for the exit as she has pushed herself up to the 5th.
Colette Orji: Colette too has had a scary time at one point or the other but she has survived and still surviving. She holds on to the 6th place. Biodun Okeowo: Biodun is also the only Yoruba actress remaining in the ‘quest’ and what a week she has had as she has moved to the 7th place.
Queeneth Hilbert: Queeneth is as good as they come even though she has had some turbulent stay in the quest. She’s now on 8th spot
Cynthia Agholor: Cynthia isn’t having a bad run, it is just that the ‘quest’ is getting more intense and too erratic for anyone to be able to stick to anything. She remains on 9th
Rita Dominic: Our leading lady isn’t having a fairytale outing in this ‘Sexiest’ business. She has come short of expectation but hanging on by the strand of her hair at 10th.
