Vanessa Minnillo — Crush of the Day

During the boy band craze of the late 90s and early 2000s, we cracked a couple (million) jokes about the guys in the groups like 98 Degrees, N’Sync and the Backstreet Boys. And man do we feel like schmucks now. Justin Timberlake is engaged to Jessica Biel and Nick Lachey has married and planted his seed in Vanessa Minnillo, pretty much the hottest TV personality right now. Take that, Maria Menounos!

We’ve racked our brains to come up with why Vanessa Minnillo is so hot and after much debate, long drawn out mathematical equations and a slap fight, we’ve got the formula — Not only is she Irish and Italian, but also half-Filipina. Being a ‘pinay’ is the universal ‘x factor,’ of hotness. Trust us on this one.

A former Miss Teen USA, Minnillo went on to host the since defunct MTV show, ‘TRL,’ in addition to acting as a New York City correspondent for ‘Entertainment Tonight.’ She’s been featured on the covers of Maxim, Shape and Lucky magazines. More recently, she’s been keeping busy hosting ABC’s ‘Wipeout,’ and will soon be raising a family with a former boy band member.

It looks as though Nick Lachey is laughing last…at us.
