MANILA -- A survey by a travel website has ranked Filipinos to be the third sexiest nationality in the world.

Big 7 Travel polled its 1.5 million social audience about where they think they will find the world’s most beautiful people.

The website said “survey respondents were given no further specifications of the term ‘sexy,’ so interpretation of the word was up to them.”

Filipinos received enough votes to rank third, just behind Ukranians and Danish at the first and second, respectively.

Big 7 Travel surmised the third spot placing was probably due to the popularity of Filipino personalities in the world like professional boxer Manny Pacquiao, Bruno Mars and “the many Miss World participants.”

As of writing, the reigning Miss Universe is Filipina beauty queen Catriona Gray. Pia Wurtzbach also held the same title just three years ago.

Big 7 Travel did not reveal the exact number of the votes they got their poll, nor a breakdown of it. 

Just last month, the same travel website also hailed Filipinos as having one of the world's sexiest accents
