The SexBomb Girls (also known as the SexBomb Dancers, SB Girls, SB Dancers, and SBG) is a Philippine dance group founded in Manila, Philippines, in 1999. They are known for the hit novelty songs "Spageti Song", "Bakit Papa" ("Why Father?") and "Bilog na Hugis Itlog" ("Egg-shaped Circle") that were certified platinum in the Philippines. The music video of "Bilog na Hugis Itlog" aimed to educate Filipino voters on the new procedure implemented in the 2010 Philippine general election. The Sexbomb Girls' Round 2 album has sold 150,000 copies in the Philippines, becoming the best-selling album by a female group in Philippine music history. They have sold over 555,000 copies of albums in the Philippines, making them the Philippines' best-selling female group of all time. In 2008, the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc. Awards recognized them as "The Most Popular Dance Group".

They are well known for their chant, "Get, get aww!" They were once mainstay dancers for Eat Bulaga!, the longest noontime variety show in the Philippines. However, the Sexbomb Dancers no longer appear on Eat Bulaga! as they are currently freelancers having been able to appear in any channel and guest in any TV show except Eat Bulaga! due to some misunderstandings.[clarification needed] The group is a mainstay dancer in Sunday All Stars every Sunday on GMA-7; some members also appear in Banana Split on ABS-CBN. They perform in shows and concerts at The Library in Malate and at Zirkoh and Klownz in Quezon City.


History[edit]

The group began in November 11, 1999 as the Chicken Sandwich Dancers which was an offshoot of the Danz Focus (house dancers of Eat Bulaga). At first there were four (Cheryl, Debra, Janine and Rochelle). The group expanded to seven with the addition of Jopay, Aira, and Miavelle Pangyarihan. The group continued to expand (during their first FHM appearance), and so on. The entertainer's fame continued to permeate with constant show guestings, outside shows, and their longest drama on television, Daisy Siete. The Sexbomb Girls are currently under J. Entertainment, along with the Philippine Island Assassin, managed by Jara Cancio, the daughter of Joy Cancio, and Aira Bermudez.

Television[edit]

The girls had their own top-rating afternoon drama series Daisy Siete, aired over GMA Network weekdays at 2:30pm.

Daisy Siete has been a ratings mogul since its premiere, charting its highest rating at 30% in December 2003 (season 1). This is a very high rating for the afternoon block. Nowadays, Daisy Siete rates anywhere from 19% to 25%. It has blown away all the shows put up by rival networks to compete with it. Some of these shows are Colgate Trip Kita, Sarah the Teen Princess, and Kapamilya Cinema.

From 2002–2003, the girls were also part of Daboy en Da Girl, with Rochelle as Britney, and the girls as Japayukis.

The girls have appeared on different guestings in the GMA Network. Magpakailanman has featured the life stories of several Sexbomb Girls with them playing themselves: Sunshine Garcia, Jacque Estevez, Aira Bermudez, Evette Pabalan, Johlan Veluz and Aifha Medina. Rochelle Pangilinan's story was played by Rufa Mae Quinto. Rochelle has portrayed other characters twice, and Aira played the Aeta featured in one episode. All of these were winners in the ratings game.

The Sexbomb Dancers were mainstays on QTV Channel 11's Let's Get Aww! which aired last November 2005. The show was short-lived.

Music videos[edit]

The girls starred in the music video for "Askal", sang by Jose Manalo & Wally Bayola, and the song entry for the second Philippine Popular Music Festival.[1]
