    Thanks Versus! I am South African and I sure think that Lyndall is gorgeous! YOU GO SOUTH AFRICA! 🙂

  • Dumba

    First of all, thanks to Versus for the variety.

    For Lyndall, at first i thought she was a plastic doll (Because of the heavy re-touchings), but after watching the video i changed my mind. She is a hot girl.

    Well actually i have a question for South Africans;
    For a country of a 10% of white population, how can she be the sexiest woman in South Africa 😕

    Do only white men buy FHM in there?

    Sorry about my engrish 🙂

    • Alyssa

      Hear hear!!!
      VERY good point….

  • zoe

    i think she is gorgeous. and that she is sexy, but i do not agree that she os the ‘sexiest’ cuz there is a lot of other girls are sexier than her. and plus, these photos are photshopped. im not hating, i think she is REALLY gorgeous.

  • Maryna

    We’re a rainbow nation, so we have a wide variety of cultures and races in S.A. FHM S.A. features a wide variety of women from different races in their magazine. Go and check out their website on http://www.fhm.co.za. I think Lyndall won because she was the sexiest, why does it matter whether she is white?

    • ABCD

      It doesn’t matter in a way because she is obviously hot. But it does matter in a way because one can’t help but think it’s more of the same old, same old…pushing a “white” standard of beauty on others.

      • Maryna

        I don’t agree, why does this have to be a race issue? As I said go and have a look at their website. They feature girls from all races. One of S.A.’s gorgeous black models is Joelle Kayembe who’s a regular face in FHM S.A. Also go and see Tansey Coetzee, who is coloured, a former miss S.A. and a FHM model. Also go and see their anual calendar for 2009. They use models from all races, because they know that we are a rainbow nation and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If the “white standard” was being pushed on others, why would they feature girls from different races?!

          When some people see a white girl being displayed as ‘most beautiful woman’ in a country where they expect the majority to be black, East Asian, West Asian, Middle Eastern, etc. many immediately think ‘racism’. Americans in particular are very sensitive because of history and Europeans and Brits are following because of minorities pulling the race card, crying wolf when it comes to discrimination, etc. Now people are always worrying about racism, even when it isn’t really there.

          I don’t think it is racist because, as you said, they have plenty of women of other ethnicities on the site! I find this ‘jumping to the conclusion of racism’ thing to be annoying. If one thinks choosing this white woman as number one this one time is racist, they are lucky enough to not know what real racism is. Real racism breeds hatred against those of different racial heritages and looks down upon them as inferior beings. There are sites out there describing non-white people as ugly and primitive and promoting whites as the one and only attractive race on the planet!

          My friend’s father has never found an East Asian or partially East Asian woman attractive. Does that mean he is racist towards me? No, he still invites me into his home, allows me to dine with his family, allows his daughter to maintain a friendship with me and treats me as an equal human being. It seems to me that, with the diversity on South Africa’s FHM site, women of all races had a fair chance to win this else they wouldn’t have appeared on the site at all.

          • Lisa

            Umm, just because a magazine considers another ethnicity sexy, doesn’t mean that they actually like or respect that ethnicity. Many slaves were raped by their white slave owners, not because of love or admiration. Being viewed as sexy (for anyone) is objectification rather than adoration.

            Being racist and acting on it are two different things. There are many people who are racist who don’t go around lynching anymore because of the laws and societal norms in place now, not because they aren’t racist.

            I don’t think all minorities cry wolf or play the race card. I won’t pretend to know what minorities (ugghh I hate that word) go through, but I know even being a woman makes things harder, much less a minority.

            Sorry, back on topic. She looks like any other lingerie/swimsuit “model” in the U.S.

          • linnea

            might be, but some of my friends have lived in South Africa for a few yrs, and they say it’s still quite diverted, those old cultures stay and try to live in peace next to each other… of course never having been there i can’t tell, and i certainly don’t think that choosing a white woman to be the sexiest of some competition is racist, but i get why it might raise some thoughts. Also i have noticed that as cultural diversity increases in a place, the racism changes it’s tone. Where as once people might have thought that a certain background means a certain level of intelligence/manners, or think that one race is higher than another, nowadays it’s quite common to “gang up” w/ peops who have the same kind of heritage, it’s kind of clans vs. clans, and they pretend to be allowing, just ’cause they don’t think their higher in any way, but they still wanna stick to their “own” kind. aah, what ever, millions of people make no difference between colour or any of that, but i just think it’s naive to think it’s all ok now.

          • ABCD

            OK I am East Asian as well and I don’t think it’s “racist” but it is just annoying. Just like when Vogue India came out with an inaugural issue with Gemma Ward on the cover, as if Bipasha Basu, Laxmi Menon etal were not beautiful enough to represent beauty. Different situation as you don’t see too many white ppl in India whereas S Africa has a significant minority population of whites. As I stated before, she is beautiful so it’s not as if they blatantly said “no blacks-we’ll just find any white girl” and put an ugly heiffer on the cover. However, it is annoying to me nonetheless :]

          • Ella

            Lisa – I never said that finding an ethnicity attractive means someone respects that ethnicity. However, I do believe that when they are included in things like this, it shows that society has progressed enough that they can show this person to the masses as someone who is considered beautiful, as someone you might want to ask out, or as someone so stunning you would actually be afraid to approach her. If they were racist, they would never want to depict any non-white ethnicity in such a manner, with the power to attract their ‘superior’ men, right? They would either ignore them completely, or even try to depict them as ugly, inferior and primitive. From what Maryna has said, they do not do this. Sure, finding someone attractive does not necessarily mean a LARGE amount of respect, but then why do so many people think it is racist if the non-white women AVOID the most objectified position of all? Is that not then the most racist and sexist position to be in?

            Rape is so far away from simply finding someone attractive, how can you even compare the two as being the same? Besides, rape NEVER happens because of attraction. It happens because of a desire for power over someone else, a desire to punish, harm and humiliate a victim.

            Sorry, but lynching versus non-lynching is miles away from choosing a non-white woman as number one versus not choosing a non-white woman as number one in a men’s magazine! How can you even begin to compare purposely chasing down and murdering someone to being chosen for some beauty competition?

            I never said all minorities cry wolf or play the race card, but it does happen and people are adjusting because of it. Some non-white people are realising they can take advantage and white people are realising they need to be more careful. I’ve had people do it to me even though I AM half East Asian. They were using the race card to excuse their own racist behaviour towards me! Ironic. Especially seeing as they were black and their ancestors fought to stop racism.

            linnea – That is very true that ethnicities tend to stick with their own ethnicities. I once lived in Toronto: one of the most multicultural and multiracial places I have ever lived. The different ethnicities rarely mingled though; they all kept to ‘their own’, as you said!

            Alyssa – You’re right: they could have found the demographic was mostly white readers. Or perhaps there are many more white women interested in modelling as opposed to other ethnicities. For example, South Asian and East Asian parents tend to push their children to focus on getting the best education possible and becoming a doctor or lawyer. Their parents would kill them if they considered modelling as a career! All in all, from what people have posted, I think it is equally likely that is either discrimination or multiple factors adding up so that it LOOKS like discrimination, but really isn’t.

        • Alyssa

          I went to the site and the home page has all white girls;
          the girls tab has 9/12 girls as white, mostly blonde, a few brunettes;

          Lol, Im blonde (but not blue eyed), but even I know there is a preference and I can see a bias when there’s a bias.

          Whatever. Stereotypes exist for a reason – just because some people are paranoid about racism doesn’t mean they’re not on the mark once in a while.

          maybe they just do it because they researched the demographic of who buys the mag and it was white dudes!

          Lol, you dont see any white girls in Ebony magazine 😛

          I think its just a note to make and move on… but I do suspect these people make a valid point and they shouldn’t be so easily dismissed…

          • Leanna

            I’m with ABCD and Alyssa.

            Not to say this girl is not stunning or deserving of being voted ‘sexiest female’ but you have to admit having a caucasian, blonde, blue eyed woman as the poster girl for a country that has a predominately black population only goes to show that the western ideals of beauty are being pushed everywhere.

        • j

          interesting I just clisked the link and on the home page 4 white models…

Is that not then the most sexist AND racist position of all? To be the most objectified?

      I never said ALL minorities cry wolf or play the race card, but it does happen. I’ve had people do it towards me even though I AM half East Asian. They were using the race card to excuse their own racist behaviour towards me! Ironic. Especially seeing as they were black and their ancestors fought to stop racism.

      Linnea – That is so true. I once lived in one of the most multiracial and multicultural cities in the world and you never saw them mingling. They all stuck with ‘their own’, as you said!

      ABCD – Yes, I think you understood what I was saying! That, if the other ethnicities were not included on the site or in the magazine AT ALL, it would be saying, ‘These ethnicities are ugly,’ and that WOULD be racist. However, since they ARE included, I do not think it is as bad as everyone believes it is.

      Alyssa – Your point about looking at the demographic of the magazine caught my eye. After reading others’ posts, it might well be that it is discrimination, but then again, there could be many other factors as to why there are more white women in the magazine. For example, (in addition to what you’ve mentioned) it could be that the non-white ethnicities’ cultures does not allow it. I know that many South Asian and East Asian parents want their children to study hard and become doctors and lawyers. They would kill their children if they even considered modelling as a career! I am not saying that is definitely it, but I am saying one must look carefully at all possible causes before pointing fingers and accusing anyone of racism.

        Okay girls, can we please stop this now. This wasn’t meant to be a post about racist issues. I am proudly South African and I am happy to see a post about a South African beauty, even though she is white. I would’ve been just as happy if they had posted a South African beauty from another race. Our country has come along way, and altough were not perfect, things are not like they used to be. To be honest, I didn’t grow up in the apartheid era, so our generation have a new lease on life. I, myself am not a racist. I am very sorry if anyone felt offended by me. Sorry girls. Are we okay then? 🙂

  • Princessa

    Wow, she’s perfect and absolutely gorgeous!!

  • Princessa

    One of the sexiest women in the world I might say 🙂

  • Kae

    Yes, she’s pretty, but in a generic sort of way, IMO. And yes, it’s only my opinion. I am not drawn to women who look like this. I myself prefer brunette and redhead over blond because blonds grow on trees here in Cali., especially with the help of bleach. I like a more exotic woman and so does my husband.

    • anya

      I agree. I think she’s pretty but she just blends in. Nothing special about her that makes her stand out.

  • pia

    she’s ok… nothing special.. and she’s kind of boring, she doesn’t have a new and fresh face and body

  • Ella

    Sorry for the two very long, nearly identical posts. *Rolls eyes* Internet went strange and I thought the first post was lost. At times like this, I really wish there was a ‘delete’ button, or at least an ‘edit’ button!
