History[edit]

The Sexbomb Dancers were originally composed of four members upon their formation in 1999. They were background dancers for Eat Bulaga, the Philippines' longest running noontime variety show. Of the four members, only Rochelle Pangilinan remains part of the Sexbomb Girls, and is regarded as the leader because of her seniority. The group began in November 1999 as the 'Chicken Sandwich Dancers' which was an offshoot of the Danz Focus (house dancers of Eat Bulaga). At first there were 4 (Cherri, Debra, Janice and Rochelle). The group expanded to 6 with the addition of Jopay and Aira. The group expanded to 8, 12 and 13 (during their first FHM appearance) to an all time high of 22 Former Members are Che-che Tolentino, JB Cifra, Michelle Reyes, AB, Natalie 'Babat' Imperial, Jane Lao, Yvette Lopez (winner of the first search for SB contest) The Sex Bomb 2002. The Sexbomb Singers were formed that same year, and are billed as Sexbomb Girls in their shows and promotional materials. The dancers did shows under the dance albums, Sexiest Hits Series and "I Like." The Sexbomb Singers and Dancers are commonly still referred to as the Sexbomb Girls. The Sexbomb Girls was managed by Joy Cancio, of FOCUS E Incorporated. Joy is veteran of the Vicor Dancers of the 1980s.

The entertainment group's fame continued to permeate with the said album publications, constant national television show guestings, outside live shows in political campaigns and comedy bars, and their longest drama on television, Daisy Siete that ended on July 2010. Upon the group's dismissal from Eat Bulaga on 2011, the SexBomb Girls welcomed a freelance television contract (appears in GMA, ABS-CBN, and TV5) while maintaining outside shows.

The SexBomb Girls are currently under J Entertainment (beginning January 2014) on a continued freelance state as 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", sung by Jose Manalo & Wally Bayola, and the song entry for the second Philippine Popular Music Festival.[1]
