The ‘World’ Invasion of Katarina Rodriguez!

Katarina Rodriguez first gained popularity as a contestant in the second season of Asia’s Next Top Model in 2014 where she finished third next to fellow Filipina contestants Jodilly Pendre and eventual winner Sheena Liam of Malaysia.

Fast forward to 2017, Katarina joined the Binibining Pilipinas – the premiere beauty pageant in the country and easily became one of the contenders for the top plum – the Miss Universe Philippines. She still emerged victorious but as our representative for Miss Intercontinental 2017.

At the Miss Intercontinental 2017 edition held earlier this year in Egypt, she was touted to easily pick up our first title from said pageant but the stars are not in our favor as she settled for a runner-up finish next to Veronica Salas of Mexico. There was a bit of an outrage but like the true queen she is, Katarina easily pacified her fans with a very heartfelt post about her experience in Egypt.

from Katarina’s Instagram

Earlier this week, the screening of the Miss World Philippines 2018 was held in Manila and unsurprisingly, Katarina showed up as she’s been hinting for months that she’s still open to joining other pageants this year. This feisty model is now embarking on her journey towards the Blue Crown but it won’t be an easy one as she has to beat 39 other candidates first in order to set foot in China this December for the 2018 Miss World pageant.

What are Katarina’s chances in finally snagging the top title this year? I adore this girl! I loved her fighting spirit and her positive disposition kahit mukha daw siyang maldita. Hahaha! I loved how she could easily socialize with everyone and I think that’d be one of her advantages in the national pageant and if the stars will align in her favor – hopefully towards her road to bring back the blue crown to the country!

Good luck Katja! Get it!

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 9 – The Girl With a Wild Side

There’s a lot of things that I liked about the episode last night and just a few missed that I didn’t care about at all after waking up this morning. I loved the fact that my two home-girls got the first and second call-outs, whoot hoot! And ofcourse, the photoshoot this week was j’adore!!!! I’m not that disappointed with the girl that was sent home, only if you will based the episode on their body of works all throughout the competition but to boot her out with that picture was a travesty! For this episode, the girls went to Sarawak in Borneo. During the shoot, resident judge Mike Rosenthal was their photographer so the girls were very nervous and all. It was the best concept of the season for a shoot if I may say so, let’s all check them out…

Jodilly

Jodilly

This for me is beyond incredible! It’s my favorite shot of the season! This is a very strong photo and could easily land Jodilly a spot in the finals!

Josephine

Josephine

I just love this girl! She keeps on producing great shot after another! I’m not gonna be mad if I’ll see her walking the final runway.

Katarina

Katarina

I love me some baby Katja and she’s looking fierce as hell here! I love that she also reminds me of a tribe princess here jungle warrior princess theme since the outfits says so little about the latter.

Marie

Marie

This shot is too grotesque for me in the face. I wished Marie could’ve soften it a little but nevertheless, it was still a good shot face down.

Natalie

Natalie

Remove the shoes and I can totally picture this in a National Georgraphic feature. I just love the composition of this shot! There’s so much to look at and it’s really interesting!

Nicole

Nicole

Nicole’s magic seems to be not working this time – she’s totally losing it. Cmon’ girl! It’s the final stretch!

Sheena

Sheena

Wow! Sheena is looking so luminous! I love her body movement and I love that I can still see Sheena! Like always, it’s smashing!

So who went home this episode?

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 8 – The Girl Who Makes a Splash

Eight girls remains with the competition getting in the nerves of most of the girls. Who’s that one girl who will keep her cool and rise on top this episode?

So far, three girls are getting consistent remarks from the judges for “always bringing it” in every shoot. Marie for one is having an impressive run with the most FCO’s this series thus far, followed by Nicole and Josephine whose pictures are getting rave reviews! Are the judges setting them up to be the finals three?

The challenge winner this episode was Tia (her second this cycle) winning a lunch date with no less than THE Jimmy Choo and they had their photoshoot at the beautiful and luxurious  Pangkor Laut resort with Chiun-Kai Shih as their photographer. (which somehow reminds me of the first cycle’s French Riviera‘s episode) The panel was joined by Andrea Fonseka, a former Miss Malaysia.

Jodilly

Jodilly

I love how Jodilly’s using her body here but her facial expression seemed disconnected somehow. I still like it though.

Josephine

Josephine

JoJo is back! A very strong shot from the most consistent girl this season! I love how she’s using her whole body to get a great shot!

Katarina

Katarina

Whilst I’m not a fan of this shot, I thought her profile looks absolutely divine! You cannot deny a beauty like Katarina. She’d do really well in beauty campaigns!

Marie

Marie

Well, what can I say? Marie’s totally bringing it! This shot is so dynamic and so powerful I could totally see it in any fashion magazine! Well done girl!

Natalie

Natalie

I really love this shot of Natalie. Unlike Marie, this shot does not require ferocity but softness and some intensity in the eyes. I see softness but not intensity! Still a great shot though!

Nicole

Nicole

Now, this has got to be Nicole’s worst photo to date. Her body look distorted and her face is unrecognizable. It’s fierce all right but I feel that it’s a bit forced.

Sheena

Sheena

Mighty Sheena is back! Thank you girl for bringing back the old you! This is smashing and you look like a tree nymph here! This is my favorite shot from the bunch! Amazing!

Tia

Tia

Being the shortest in the bunch, she really does look short here and her profile isn’t really that good. It’s time to pack your bag girl, it was a great run though.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 7 – The Girl Who is in the Spotlight

There are still ten girls running towards becoming Asia’s Next Top Model since last week was a non-elimination episode. This time around though, it’s going to be a lot harder especially for Janice and Tia who have to carry on with this episode’s photoshoot with frames lesser than the rest of the girls.

For this week’s episode, the girls were tested for their *acting skills* and during the challenge, half of the girls were immediately booted out and were to help the other half to win the challenge. They were paired together to create a night look hair which Sheena easily won and picked her fellow Malaysian Josephine to share her prizes.

The shoot this week was for TRESemmé, one of the main sponsors this cycle (as you may already know, the winner of this cycle will have the chance of becoming the face of one of TRESemmé’s 2014 campaigns.) Now,IMO this is an all important challenge because whoever gets the first call out here have a very good shot of landing at the Top 4 – the least. At the panel, the judges were joined by Asian popstar Coco Lee.       

Janice

Janice

This isn’t working for me at all. If I’m being honest, she looks more than an actress than a model and she does look old at times. Sorry Janice, this is it girl.

Jodilly

Jodilly

I actually loved this shot!! Jodi’s face is a bit harsh at times that seeing her looking so soft this time around was refreshing!

Josephine

Josephine

I’ve a problem with the way her face photographed here. It made her look old but I love her body position.

Katarina

Katarina

Finally! Katja’s best shot to date no doubt! That face is flawless! I kinda wished though that she stretched her right hand more because it looks  a bit on a shorty side.

Marie

Marie

Don’t get me wrong, I love Marie but her picture doesn’t translate top model to me. She’s technically very good and knows her angle but it’s too studied in my opinion. Gotta love this shot though!

Natalie

Natalie

I’m not too crazy about this photo because it looks a bit dated but I love her face here!

Nicole

Nicole

She totally nailed this one!!! I’ve no doubt now that this Singaporean beauty is the one to beat at the moment. She’s tall, she’s high fashion and can be very commercial as well. Plus, her look is very NOW.

Sheena

Sheena

Sheena’s one of my favorite girls in the competition and I just love her consistency but she’ boring me for two weeks now.

Sneha

Sneha

Oh no, this is a total disaster! After an impressive shoot last week, she’s giving us this pose? It’s so not TRESemmé!

Tia

Tia

While I’m not the biggest fan of Tia and have wanted her to leave weeks ago, I feel that she’s giving us decent pictures and for that – she deserved to stay a week more.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 6 – The Girl Who Works The Room

So we’ve a pretty interesting episode last night with Janice doing all the bitching and blahblah talking and getting all the hate from the rest of the girls. ‘Girl doesn’t know when to shut up but it was really fun if I’m being honest. I love me some Asian catfights.

During the challenge, Joey invited the girls to attend a party and show how they will conduct themselves in an event. Jodilly was unanimously praised and as the winner of this challenge, she was to be given extra 15 frames in the upcoming photoshoot.

During the shoot, Jodi and Nicole did extremely well while most are executed the mechanical couture* shoot poorly. Let’s all check the results of this shoot…

This in my opinion, Janice best shot to date but I still don't see a model. She's the mediocre version of Sheena (ANTM Cycle 11) and Sheena's not even the best girl from that cycle.

Again, it's the same expression from Katarina. I don't know what to make of her. The girl's got the personality of a top model but does she have the goods to prove it? This shot isn't working at all. It's either they're keeping her for her personality rathern than her body of work. Step it up baby Katja!

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 4 – The Girl That Embraces Change (Makeover Episode!)

Last night’s episode saw the 12 remaining girls undergo makeovers. Some of them aren’t happy about it as usual (cmon’ girls, if you wanna be a model, you’ve to be ready to DO THIS!)

For their photoshoot, they were styled by Nicoline to look their best in a 60’s chich style themed shoot! Who do you think got the boot this time?

I'm giving up on Janice. She's short and she's not using her full potentials that the judges saw in her...

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 3 – The Girl Who’s Hot When She Is Cold

This episode almost killed half of the girls in the house. For their reward challenge, the girls did a commercial shoot for Visit Malaysia 2014 ads where they have to walk  the runway  on top of Menara Kuala Lumpur (KL Tower)! Janice had a panic attack while most of the girls did pretty well. Hometown girl Josephine was the winner of this challenge!

For their third shoot, the girls are to posed sexy as they test their limits to withstand the cold wearing just skimpy outfitsin SnoWalk in Sengalor. Most of them were amazing this episode except for Janice who seemed to be off her elements this week.

At panel, Josephine was yet again praised for her consistency as well as Nicole  (who’s becoming my favorite by the way) for delivering edgy looks. The judges were not that impressed with the rest but they ultimately felt Janice and Jihye didn’t deliver at all…

So who’s getting the boot???

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 2 – Who Attracts the Following?

Last night’s episode was pretty interesting with the  remaining 14 girls vying for the title of the most bad@ss model in the house LOL. For their challenge, they were to form three groups with three girls each leaving Nicole and Sneha group-less so they formed a two-girl group instead.  The groups are to take “selfies” of themselves and the winner of that challenge was the beautiful Pooja who shared her reward to… Katarina! They went to an helicopter ride, sightseeing the beautiful Malaysian scenery.

Shortly after that, the girls are to pose in Malaysian traditional clothing in Batu Caves ( a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples situated in Gombak district in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.)

During the shoot, each girl just had 15 frames to work with. Jodilly, Janice, Nicole and Sneha impressed the photographer while Pooja, Katja and Natalie did okay.  Bona was not showing versatility disappointing everyone in the shoot and the rest are just hanging there.

Prior to the panel, the girls are having some issues with each other esp Nicole over Janice whose being a brat in my opinion. Wow! I feel like watching an episode of the American version with this episode! LOL. Tia’s being all so bitchy with Katja. At panel, they hated Bona’s picture. Too bland IMO. I also didn’t like Tia’s pose. She’s not a model, TBH and the judges doesn’t like it as well. #served

Anyways, here are the pictures from last night episode. Don’t mind my critique, that’s just me. >_<

Bona

Bona

This is beyond lifeless. I thought she’d be great over the run of the show but this is pretty boring.

Janice

Jihye

Jodilly

Katarina

Marie

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 Episode 1 – The Girl Who Walks the Walk

I’ll try to make this post very short. A summary of some sort – a post I should’ve named Episode 1 – The Double Opening Elimination – Oops. So the show started where most of the girls were introduced. They did a bizarre challenge in the tradition of the Top Model let’s see who can survive these damn challenges?. Water! They have to walk on water! Well, you get it folks. During this challenge – Josephine, Jodilly and Bona are totally bringing it like a pro while the rest just did a-ok with dear Miss Kat falling – you’re still beautiful my homegirl. After the challenge, Jessie was whisked off the show right away after failing to impress. That was just the fastest elimination, imo. She didn’t even reach the makeover episode! So one down for the Chinese delegation.
