(SPOT.ph) For this year's edition of the cutest newsmen, we decided to keep things fresh. Translation: the newsmen listed as the cutest in 2010 and 2011 were disqualified from the 2012 list. It wasn't such a tough call to make: The flooding last week had us watching a lot of news, where we learned that yes there are still a lot of adorable newsmen out there who deserve to be recognized.

 

This year, aside from hardcore news staples, our "hunting ground" covered news magazine shows, lifestyle news programs, and even Web-based newscasts.

 

In the spirit of brainless fun, SPOT.ph lists this year's 10 cutest TV newsmen in the country. (If you know more cute newsmen, let us know. They might just make the cut for next year’s list.)

 

You can also check out: "Top 10 Cutest TV Newsmen: 2011 Edition" and "Top 10 Cutest TV Newsmen: 2010 Edition."

10. TONIPET GABA

This lifestyle newsman is the host of Pop Talk, which airs on GMA News TV 11. We first spotted him when he was still hosting (and eating everything in sight) in Tara, Let's Eat. He has the kind of unassuming moreno good looks that may not be immediately striking—but then one day you think, "Hey, this guy is actually cute." His perpetually animated deep-set eyes certainly help. And, of course, his dimples seal the deal.

 

Past No. 10 cuties: GMA-7's Ian Cruz (2011) and IBC-13's Aljo Bendijo (2010).

9. JEROME LANTIN

This babyfaced ABS-CBN correspondent drew us in with his "Hindi makabasag pinggan" charm. Later on, we noticed just how sexy his biceps were. They're the kind of arms in which young girls (and, perhaps, cougars) would want to be held. We're certain that this young newsman will just get yummier as he gets older.

 

Past No. 9 cuties: GMA-7  newsmen Hadji Rieta (2011) and Ferds Recio (2010).

    Cute newsmen ba? Qualified din ba dito mga taga-regional stations? Val Balita of ABS-CBN Batangas is definitely cute. Look alike ni Japoy Lizardo. Nagrereport din siya minsan sa TV Patrol World at Umagang Kay Ganda.

    Sorry Cerveza, but I'm a fan and I think this is still wrong. Make a fresh edition top 10, but last year's candidates should not have been disqualified. I started following Warren de Guzman after seeing him her and I really had high hopes that he would be bumped up!

    Poppycock! The absurdity in this article is more scandalous that wearing less than five petticoats. How does a popular periodical such as yourself turn your back on Warren De Guzman, the gentleman who brought sexy back to the Stocks? Like a chimney sweep that shimmied too low among the fireplace with nary a sixpence for his troubles, it is hogwash like this that makes me want to call the constable on your shenanigans.

    Why is Warren de Guzman not here? This is absurd. I've been following the reports on the Philippine Stock Market on ANC for an entire year and Warren has kept me up-to-date on the latest stock-related news. On top of being informative, this dashing gentleman has made this part of the news charming and, if I may, addicting to be honest.

    Last year you placed him as #8 and now you took him out? Shame on you, spot.ph. Please bring Warren back!

    The first time I saw Edric Mendoza was on ANC's Talkback with Tina Palma. He was a guest then and they were discussing about homeschooling. He is really an eye-candy! Then the next thing I knew he has a new show and daily at that. Good job, ANC! :-)
