MANILA -- "Nervous."
It was one of the words Sanya Lopez used to describe how it felt to be selected as the new calendar girl of Ginebra San Miguel.
The actress was revealed Thursday, and the anxiety over being picked by the liquor brand was understandable considering who she was following up -- last year's model was Miss Universe winner Pia Wurtzbach.
Though it became immediately clear that Lopez put those worries to good use -- determined, she said that she underwent a strict diet and worked out daily, engaging in running, muay thai, and boxing, for the shoot. And the results of her efforts showed.
Check out the sneak peak of the 2020 calendar below:
Lopez joins the likes of Marian Rivera, Georgina Wilson, Arci Muñoz, Myrtle Sarrosa and Solenn Heussaff, who have also posed for the calendar in past years.
She was said to have been picked for representing traits usually associated with Ginebra San Miguel --"courage, resiliency, optimism, and never-say-die spirit."
