Philantropist and former Darna actress Angel Locsin and President Rodrigo Duterte are the most admired woman and man by Filipinos, according to a YouGov poll.

The UK-based market research and data analytics firm shared a list of individuals people all over the globe admire the most.

The local version of the poll, which was conducted online from May to September, showed that Locsin is the most admired woman in the country with an admiration score of 15.03%, while President Duterte claimed first place in the men's category with 19.67%. That's 4 spots higher than Pope Francis, who sits in fifth place with a score of 6.89%.

Aside from Locsin, only 3 other Filipinas made it to the Philippine list of top 10 most admired women: former Miss Universe Catriona Gray in second place, singer Sarah Geronimo nabbing third place, and actress Liza Soberano coming in sixth place.

These women share spots next to other established gals like singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, actress Angelina Jolie, and even Queen Elizabeth II.

Only 2 other Filipino made it to the local list—boxer and senator Manny Pacquiao clinched second place just after the president, with Manila City mayor Isko Moreno tailing at third. Martial artist and actor Jackie Chan, tech mogul Bill Gates, and action star Keanu Reeves also made it to the top 10.

A total of 20 men and 20 women from all over the globe selected from an earlier January to March survey were joined with 5 to 10 local personalities from each country to create the country-specific editions of the survey.

However, YouGov gave a disclaimer, saying that since the Philippines is a country where "internet penetration is low," the results can only reflect the opinion of its online population.
