Jessy Mendiola got a nice surprise from FHM staff when they personally relayed the news that she is the magazine's sexiest woman of the year.

Jessy was giving an interview with ABS-CBN News when FHM staff ambushed her with some flowers and their official announcement.

The actress was at a loss for words. Watch Jessy's reaction here:

"I'm overwhelmed. It's a nice venue to send the message that everyone is sexy and if I can win this, if I'm hailed as the sexiest of FHM, lahat tayo pwedeng maging ganun (all of us can be hailed sexiest)," said Jessy.

Jessy admitted she never thought she'll be part of the FHM sexiest woman list, let alone top it.

"Hindi ko nakita ang sarili ko na mapasali sa ganun. I guess being part of that list is enough. Kumbaga, whether you're in the top 3, or top 5, or kahit saang rank pa yan, it's an honor," said Jessy.

"It's about how you carry yourself, how you stand strong and firm with what you want to portray sa ibang tao, or what message you want to come across," she said.
