I first saw Cristine Reyes back in Starstruck. In the show, she didn't reveal any showbiz connection and was the first one to be booted out. It was only later she divulged that she was Ara Mina's sister. I never heard anything from Cristine again until she became FHM's cover girl last year. It was reportedly her first for a men's magazine. Ms. Reyes was initially hesitant but with the encouragement of her sister, she managed to pull it off(?).
I can tell you looking from a distance Cristine Reyes looks like Katrina Halili. I'm not kidding. There are angles where she looks like Katrina and this is not just me noticing it but other people as well. If I recall correctly Cristine and Katrina had a showdown on another men's magazine.
It seems Maxim prefers to get fresh beauties to grace their magazine cover. Two months ago, it featured Regine Angeles.
