Melissa Ricks and Gerald Anderson pose for FHM

The FHM Philippines’ September 2012 issue features actress Melissa Ricks and premier leading man Gerald Anderson.

The 22-year old Ricks, one of the casts of ABS-CBN’s hit series “Walang Hanggan” and a Star Circle Quest alumna wore a white two-piece swimsuit for the popular men’s magazine cover.

According to the official FHM website, the shoot for Ricks was done in Hong Kong, where the original plan was for her to pose in a bra and skirt along the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui district. However the setting was called off due to the lack of necessary permits.

Sharing the magazine’s September’s  flipside cover is Budoy’s star, Gerald Anderson who leads this year’s FHM Collections.  Showbiz observers say Anderson’s FHM appearance indicates his emergence as a fashion icon.

Joining Anderson on the magazine’s “list of the country’s young and powerful.” are dancer-comedian Vhong Navarro, Callalily frontman Kean Cipriano, tattoo artist Ronian Poe, and radio personality Papa Jack, among others.

The FHM shoot is actually a first for both  Star Magic artists.
