CLEO (Malaysia) - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

With its power to unite, in­spire and ex­cite in a way lit­tle else can, there’s noth­ing like a ma­jor sport­ing event. This month, I call upon you to hud­dle up as CLEO sets the stage. For five months now, #teamCLEO has been con­cen­trated (some would say ob­sessed) on a seem­ingly end­less list of ridicu­lously good-look­ing Bach­e­lor nom­i­nees. It’s a tough task, but some­one’s got to do it!

The qual­i­fier was an elec­tri­fy­ing first round of ac­tion to say the least – a three-day shoot, with 10 play­ers in each slot. Four in wardrobe, hair and make-up; one in front of the cam­era; an­other wait­ing for his turn, hav­ing a good mus­cle pump; three get­ting in­ter­viewed for the mag­a­zine; and an­other for web. To­tal in­san­ity, which you can check out on CLEOTV for an (NSFW) in­sider’s peek.

We’ve just fi­nalised the Top 50 as I sit down to write this. Signed, sealed, de­liv­ered, I’m par­tic­u­larly ex­cited for this is­sue be­cause it is teem­ing with the fittest, fastest and strong­est set of Bachelors to date. With the vot­ing lines open, only now can the games truly be­gin. The ball is in your court (page 73).

We also hon­our five in­spir­ing na­tional ath­letes, who share their in­di­vid­ual jour­neys to suc­cess, plus the bar­ri­ers they face to­gether and are de­ter­mined to break as women (page 108). To mo­ti­vate your ev­ery­day, we’ve also taken the lib­erty of fill­ing this is­sue with over 40 pages of gym gear, fash­ion and beauty – pretty much ev­ery­thing you would need to take your per­sonal best to the next level. Game on!
