The Finale of the Philippines’ Next Top Model Cycle 2, High Street!

Angela’s cover option for Meg Magazine!

It was a whirlwind finale like the season itself, and  like I’ve mentioned from my last few recaps, Angela is the one to beat and basically THE CHOSEN ONE this season so it’s not that surprising that she ended up actually winning it all! She was neck on neck with Adela for the title who has to settle for a runner-up finish with Ina as the third placer.

Seriously, I don’t think there’s much to recap in this episode. The final runway was with SM Women and I thought they all did amazing! There were some mishaps but overall, it was a lovely semi-professional presentation from the three.

I hope the next production will not be as hurried as this and they will be more creative in terms of shoot ideas like the first cycle where they even had an international destination. Truth be told, this was a bit of a downgrade from the very first cycle but I’m still thankful with TV5, SM, SMART and OPPO for reviving this show!

See ya next cycle!

Philippines’ Next Top Model Cycle 2 Winner is Angela Lehmann!

Filipino-Swiss Angela Lehman was adjudged the winner of the Philippines’ Next Top Model Cycle 2 with Adela Marshall and Ina Guerrero placing second and third, respectively.

Lehman, 22 is a newbie in modeling has gotten the most best photos and has never been in the bottom two all throughout the competition. With her win, Angela secured a management contract with TV5, and an SM and Oppo ambassadorship and an overseas trip to Hong Kong! Yay! Congratulations, Angela!

Recap: Philippines’ Next Top Model Cycle 2, High Street – Episode 10 The Girl Who Took A Shot In The Dark (Final Four)

No matter how predictable this season has been so far, it’s still a surprise that Janny was sent packing after failing to impress the judges during the pen-ultimatum episode of the second cycle of the Philippines’ Next Top Model.

Janny has everything going for her at the start of the episode booking three out of four go-sees resulting to a challenge win rewarding her ten extra frames for their next photoshoot. A photoshoot which host and judge Maggie Wilson will be shooting herself. It was another beauty shoot and the ladies are void of anything but their glow in the dark make up and their ability to still stand out amidst their features being blacked out.

Adela’s photo is a vision in itself! It’s a beautiful make-up editorial that can be seen in any fashion magazines. I won’t be mad if Adela end up winning this whole thing.

I liked Angela’s photo but as Rafa said regarding Ina’s “best shot,” this for me is another art piece and not an editiorial shot. I honestly don’t see that much of a difference between her photo and Ina’s shot..

On a side note: Angela is obviously the ‘chosen one’ and I’d definitely bet my money on her. If TV5 and the other sponsors will have a say on who should win, I’m gonna say it’s a toss-up between her and Adela with the latter having a slighter edge but if it all boils down to the judges – Angela has it in the bag.

Ina’s photo is not the best, IMO, but again – it wasn’t as boring as Janny so I kind of agree with her being in the bottom with Janny. I’m just glad she made it through. She’s one of the strongest models in the house and it’d be such a shame if she don’t get to walk the runway in the finale. Unfortunately for her, it looks like she’s getting the runner-up edit.

During the credits, a sneak peak of the Top 3 was shown with them shooting a Meg Cover with resident judge Rain Dagala. I thought Adela killed the BTS and I’m excited to see the final results. My initial thought is that this isn’t Ina and Angela’s kind of magazine. They’re just too high fashion for Meg. Meg is like Seventeen Magazine and Adela is just perfect for it. So let’s see how this would play out to Adela’s advantage.

This isn’t the chosen photo of Janny in the show. ‘Will update this once they posted it.

Just my thoughts!

Recap: Philippines’ Next Top Model Cycle 2, High Street – Episode 9 The Girl Who Has TV Commercial Skills

Last Week’s episode was a non-elimination one with Janny and Blaise being spared from the chopping block. Angela once again reigned supreme winning another best photo – a photo which she herself chose. It’s brewing to be a battle between Angela and the girls and this week’s episode is no different.

The girls are so fortunate to be guided by the internationally renowned indie film maker, Brillante Mendoza for a Smart OPPO photoshoot!

Janny and Blaise struggled the most during the shoot whilst Angela, Adela and Ina breezed through it like true superstars! I especially loved Ina and it looks like the stage was set for an Angela vs Ina finale. I just cannot see the rest of the girls usurping this two.

At panel, Ina was adjudged to have the best commercial winning an additional P50,000 from Smart. She was followed by Angela, then Adela.

Blaise was criticized for not taking this opportunity seriously whilst Janny for her ability to actually deliver the goods when it matters.

Blaise end up going home this week. It was a deserved one.

Next week’s episode is the most awaited go-see challenge! The final four will battle it out to see who will be booking jobs the most! For their photoshoot, they will be posing alongside Maggie Wilson!!! Yay! Exciting!

Recap: Cycle 2 of Philippines’ Next Top Model – High Street Episode 6 (2017)

Okay, so what just happened this episode? I mean, I’m at a loss. First, Ann went home which is a shame, really because she’s got a very big potential to be wonderful but I guess with just seven of them in the competition, an improvement will be too little too late – and unfortunately for Ann, that improvement was lackluster in comparison to the rest of the  “models” in the house still in the running towards becoming Philippines’ Next Top Model.

The Challenge this week was something of a pose-off challenge facilitated by top model and Miss World 2003 Top 5 finisher Mafae Yunon-Belasco. Aivie won the challenge because she’s obviously the only one taking it seriously. Lucky for her too because truth be told, she’s the weakest IMO amongst the remaining girls.

And surprise of the night was that Sarah decided to pack her bags and go home. No explanation was provided. I mean, what is this show?! Sarah is one of the “better” models in the house but her leaving is kind of bothering me because she could’ve given her spot to someone who really wanted it. I wished they showed why she suddenly decided to quit.

At the photoshoot, the brief is to show their androgynous side posing alongside Top Androgynous model (apparently) Julian Lucas. I thought Adela killed it during the shoot! She was  mesmerizing to watch. Janny really looks incredible with her haircut! She’s just so edgy! Just don’t talk too much girl and you’re good!  Blaise was just, I dunno bland AF. Inah’s make-up was terrible and her styling! Eeek! What was that? Ann was very painful to watch whilst Angela looks like a top model already. This is the first time that I could recall Angela’s face and I can see a glimmer of something good about her. She’s starting to be the biggest threat for the title and if I’m being honest, I could only see her and Adela winning the whole thing.

This week, they showed the deliberation process. It was just awkward. And then when Inah’s picture was called – Maggie reminded her about her attitude which was puzzling for some perhaps because they never showed anything shady involving her this episode. To remind you guys tho, from what little I could gather from last week, she called model guest Julian Lucas beshy – perhaps he got offended and shit. LOL. Seriously, the editing of this show is so wtf!

Recap: Cycle 2 of Philippines’ Next Top Model – High Street Episode 4 (2017)

Challenge: It was a make-up challenge and the girls were taught techniques on how to do their make-up and after having half of their faces done by professional make-up artist from MAC Cosmetics, the would have to do a night look on the other half of their faces.

Can I just comment how Janny’s new look still leaves me breathless? She looks exceptional. If she doesn’t open her mouth, she’s a total perfection.

Sarah won the challenge which gave her an advantage for their next shoot.

Nonetheless, the rest of them got some gift pack from MAC cosmetics and back at the model house awaits another gift for each girls from SM.

This week’s photoshoot was a beauty shoot where they will be given one word each which they have to channel in their photos with a kitten!

Aivie (Feisty)
I do not find this feisty at all. It looks a bit forced If I’m being honest.

Blaise (Quirky)
During the shoot, I thought Blaise was bringing it but the end-result was a bit of a let-down. I honestly cannot believe that it was her “best” shot.

Ann (Desirable)
Maggie said she needs to work on her eyes but I thought it’s the redeeming factor of the photo. She looks exceptional in it but truth be told, girl need some energy for she is fading.

Ina (Seductive)
After this episode, I can now easily and personally conclude that Ina is the most beautiful aspiring top model this season. Beautiful doesn’t cut it tho. She needs to step it up. This picture isn’t showing seductive at all. It’s saying pretty, almost too pretty.

Angela (Classy)
I think she just looks old.

Adela (Sassy)
Rafa absolutely adore Adela’s picture. I don’t get it. After getting that pink hair – it’s like she suddenly developed a resting bitch face.

Janny (Enchanting)
I actually liked Janny’s picture. I don’t see enchanting here but I just loved her styling. I’m obviously still not over her super awesome makeover!

Sarah (Dainty)
Rafa loves it and I think the judges were all in agreement so it was such a surprise for me that she didn’t get the first call out. Hhmmm…

What’s even more surprising is the lack of deliberation this season. I mean, they should at least show a bit of it. Oh well…

Eliminated:
Kim (Mysterious)
It’s such a shame that Kim could not deliver an FCO-worthy photo. She’s got all the goods but based on her interview, it felt like she thinks that she’s too good for the show. Kylie and Maggie were already coaching her during the shoot but she was not listening at all. I agree that it is the worst photo in the bunch so her elimination was a deserving one.

Recap: Cycle 2 of Philippines’ Next Top Model – Hight Street Episode 2 (2017)

I was out of the loop last week because I had to travel south for a little vacay and I’m totally unable to watch said episode. Anyway, I gathered some thoughts from friends and their consensus was that Jan and Adela totally killed this shoot whilst Janelle (she was one of my favorites during the first episode) was  apparently a ‘drama queen’* who needs to get the boot pronto and she actually did. Ouch!

Here are the results of the first photoshoot of the season!

Jan claiming that first “First Call Out” of the season! You go girl!

I really like this shot of Adela! A very deserving high call out!

Wow! The short girls are giving the taller girls a run for their money! Sarah is killing it!

This is honestly my favorite shot in the bunch! I still don’t remember Blaise or anything about her but I thought she totally nailed this shoot!

Kim. SMH

This is a very strong shot from Janny! Loved it and keep the THIRST! LOL

I don’t know what exactly happened but this wasn’t a really flattering shot from Ann. Expectation vs Reality?

I thought Angela’s shot was far better than Kim’s if I’m being honest.

Wow. I just loved Aivie’s shot. I loved the overall composition of this photo!

Shekie, girlfriend you really need to step it up next time!

Ina. SMH2X

Let’s be honest, is this really Janelle’s best shot??? Cmon guys! It’s horrendous! Aarrrggghhh! bye girl!
