Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 Episode 9 – The Girl Who Flew To The Top

We’re halfway through the season and with six girls still vying for the title of Asia’s Next Top Model, emotions are definitely running high. Right Gani???

So after KB’s elimination last week, Gani find it unfair that Amanda get to stay over the Hong Kong rep citing Amanda’s third time trip at the bottom. Yup, that’s Gani people eversince the Close-up photoshoot where she was pitted against Monika for the Best Photo. She became the girl who bitched the most. And Tahlia – yeah, yeah – you get the drift people.

For the challenge, the girls had a sparring session with Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion, Bruno Pucci – and oohhyeahhh. Barbara’s all over the guy and won the challenge for being so focused. LOL

At the shoot, the girls wore gowns by resident judge Alex Perry and can I just say how amazing they are??!!! Arrgghh and the concept of the shoot was amazzzzzziiinnng!

At panel, after a few of not so great weeks – Amanda finally got the praises of everyone! Well deserved girl!!! I’d say this was her second best photo IMO next to the first episode.

Asia’s Next Top Model Season 3 Episode 3 – Makeovers and Photoshoot

The episode this week was all about transformation, attitude and lots of tears from girls who are more worried with their hair than staying one more week in the competition.

Pre Makeover Cast

My personal favorite transformation are from Melissa, Aimee and Chesca – gah – Melissa’s exceptionally gorgeous this episode I feel like she should just get the title this early…LOL but yeah – we’ll have to wait and see…

At the photoshoot, the girls wore diamonds – some of them were like diamonds in the sky and some simply couldn’t make the cut.

Asia’s Next Top Model Season 3 Episode 2 – The Girl With K-POP Fever!

This season’s second episode got all K-POP on us with the girls posing in groups trying to outshine each other while donning colorful and vibrant K-pop ensemble.

As for their challenge, the girls did their best to impressed by dancing K-POP style which consequently won by the trio of Aimee Bradshaw, Franchesca Lagua and Melissa Tan.

During the photoshoot, the girls were group into four where they will be posing as Korean Pop singers. Pretty neat concept If I may say but the end result – not really digging them but I gotta say Melissa’s group totally nailed this shoot!!! Special mention to Melissa – she’s bringing that K-POP attitude in the pose! Just amazing!!!

Melissa Gani and Celine

Melissa Gani and Celine

Melissa – damn girl. Winner potential! Not gonna complain if I’ll see here in the final four this early in the competition!
Gani – oohhchow! Beautiful Gani is beautiful!
Celine – Not a fan of her face here but as a whole – she’s totally complementing Gani and Melissa.

Loretta, Barbara, Aimee

Loretta, Barbara, Aimee

Loretta – She’s really working it in her pose but her face does not really work for me here.
Barbara – Too studied for me but no one can deny how pretty Barbara is.
Aimee – I loved Aimee here and I don’t understand why she got a very low score.

Amanda, Franchesca, Monika

Amanda, Franchesca, Monika

Amanda – IMO, the worst this week. I can’t at her styling. From top to bottom. Ugh. I think she’s got tons of potentials though so let’s see in the upcoming episodes.
Chesca – Loved her face! Need more neck.
Monika – Not a stand out but she’s okay.

KB, Rani, Tahlia, Kiana

KB, Rani, Tahlia, Kiana

KB – A bit hoochie.

Asia’s Next Top Model Season 3 – Episode 1 Photoshoot (The Girl In A Spin)

Bias aside, I think Amanda totally killed this shoot! I'm so inlove with it!!!!

Bias aside, I think Amanda totally killed this shoot! I’m so in love with it!!!!

The first episode saw the the fourteen lucky hopefuls settled into their new house. They then meet with host Georgina and fellow judge Joey to evaluate their runway walk which will be part of their very first challenge. As per Top Model outrageous tradition, the girls were asked to walk the runway with a turn table at the end. Barbara (JPN) won the runway challenge although the judges were unanimous about Monika’s runway prowess. (just gotta get that out yeah? home girl and all LOL) Their first shoot was a swimsuit shoot where the youngest contestant Amanda from the Philippines easily stood out from the rest along with Barbara and Monika. Meanwhile, Shareeta (so gorg btw) struggled so much which led to her untimely demise on the show >a bit extreme I know< but I really loved the girl and thought that she’d go so far!!!! Too bad really!!!

Barbara

Barbara

I loved the proportion of her body although I was a bit distracted by the angle of her face. This was a beautiful shot overall.

Monika

Monika

The girl whom the judges thought was born for runway! I couldn’t agree more. Loved this shot but found her waist too thin! Still, that face! that face!

Tahlia

Tahlia

I’m not really a fan of this shot but I loved her face so I’m okay with her position so far.

Gani Ayu

Gani Ayu

Gawd! You gotta love that Asian flavor! Not my favorite shot in the bunch but I so love her oriental beauty!

Aimee

Aimee

I’m not that impressed with her facial expression here but the neck below was almost perfect!

Loretta

Loretta

This one though reminds me of an underwear catalog from Avon – dunnowhy?

KB

KB

This for some reason reminds me so much of a GUESS? ads!

Chesca

Chesca

Gaaahhh. I don’t understand this one. It’s too pedestrian.

Melissa

Melissa

A wee bit cliche yeah? Remember Anamaria from America’s Next Top Model Cycle15?

Kiana

Kiana

I actually loved this shot!! The feel is very “Tropical” and I loved the contour of her body. What drag this down though was her eyes. Too bad really.

Rani

Rani

Not exactly a good shot of her – proportions were off and the styling. Just tsk.

Celine

Celine

Great face. Lacks inspiration.

Shareeta

Shareeta

As much as I loved the beauty of this girl, I just have to agree with the judges. It’s the weakest photo in the bunch. I won’t be blaming it all to Shareeta though. I thought her styling overall does not suit her.

Meet The Contestants of Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle 9 (2015)

AuNTM 2015We fans of Top Model down under are up for a new cycle this year [the ninth season!] – At least over a year after Melissa Juratowitch won the series in 2013. Jennifer Hawkins will be returning as the presenter and a permanent judge along with Alex Perry and Didier Cohen.

Of course we’ve been hearing press releases about the guest judges this cycle which includes Top Model creator herself Tyra Banks, original supermodel Linda Evangelista, Jean Paul Gaultier and a lot more! This is sure to be an exciting summer for said series that lost the incomparable Charlotte Dawson last year. I’d surely miss her blunt honesty in the show and loved the idea that the producer didn’t decide to replace her chair so soon but went to having guest judges instead.

Without further ado, let’s meet this year’s girls to compete towards becoming Australia’s Next Top Model.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 10 – The Island Girl

After a couple of weeks off the air * Asia’s Next Top Model is back and this time, a rather sad elimination was bound to happen. With six girls running towards winning the coveted title, it was really hard for the judges to eliminate anyone – but really, this is still a competition.

A back to back first call out from our homegirls isn’t so bad, no? I loved the fact that Team Philippines were at number one and two. Now it is with great sadness to let ya know guys that one of the most consistent girls this cycle faltered and eventually got booted out.  Last night episode, we see the girls discussing with the Storm Model Management who will eventually and hopefully manage them after Top Model.

Marie

Marie

I didn’t like Marie’s shot. I thought it was weak facially. She’s got that same scary face from last episode. I thought her body movement’s great but it’s still a weak picture.

Jodilly

Jodilly

This isn’t exactly Jodilly’s best shot but it’s far better than the rest of the girls. I love the composition of this shot and the way she displayed an Alex Perry – kudos to you girl!

Josephine

Josephine

I thought Josephine looked great in this dress. My only problem is that it looked so catalogue-ish.

Katarina

Katarina

Alex Perry and the gang just loved how beautiful Katja was and I’ve to agree with them wholeheartedly. A beautiful face could really get you so far and I think Katarina’s out to prove that she’s not only just a face. Good job girl!

Nicole

Nicole

I am inlove with this girl and I thought that she’s got tons of potential! I just hate the fact that this photo is just boring. What just happened?

Sheena

Sheena

Are you guys getting tired of Sheena’s blonde hair? I’ve to admit that it’s getting kinda old now but you can’t fault a girl who really knows how to model. Her face looks boring but it’s still a strong shot altogether.

First Call Out: Jodilly
