Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 Episode 5 Recap!

Do not talk about me like that. Do not twist my words – Han

It’s another episode and another day of drama! 😂 Surprisingly, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching it! Here, we see there’s a whole plethora of characters we could dissect.

Han has finally found her voice! Like literally! During the challenge she was one of the most radiant ones and even got a high score from it.

The challenge this week was a screen test for a beauty product. Not surprisingly, Adela won! Listen, this girl is definitely the biggest threat in the competition because she knows how to use her cards well.

Pim and Vy bombed for two different reasons. Pim for being complacent (napping before her shoot) and Vy – well, the language barrier just hinder her progress in the competition.

After the challenge, the girls had a heart to heart convo in their dining area.

Cueu drama SFX.😂 🎬

Now, we’ve got the Thai girls in the hosue – Dana and Pim. If you’ve been observant enough, you’d realized that they’re the one with the most animosity towards Mia. They’re a couple backstabbers, is what I’m saying. I mean, I get it. This is a competition. Based on what I’ve seen so far though, they really are the fake ones. See, Pim initiated the convo this week about being honest and shit *rolls eyes* and remember the incident about Mia’s diary when she uses Jesselyn as her pawn to castigate Mia? Ugh. Pim, I can totally see what you’re doing there. 😌

Then there’s Dana. Forgettable Dana. Oh, she got the best photo this week and I don’t even remember it. Really, I don’t hate her as a model. I just think she’s forgettable and fake as hell. All the side eye and eye-rolling towards Mia. It was so off-putting.

Don’t get me wrong though, I do not think Mia is Mother Teresa and shit. If I were to describe her, I’d say she’s cunning. She doesn’t let her emotions take over her goal in this competition – TO WIN. And she’ve done this before (Austria’s Next Top Model Cycle 7), so as Adela (Philippines’ Next Top Model Cycle 2) so they do know how to play this game. She and Adela are on to something. I won’t even be surprised if they end up in the final two.

The shoot this week wasnt that spectacular. It was a beauty shoot and I do think that they intentionally chose the worst picture of the girls save for the girl/s they wanted to put the spotlight on in the coming weeks – ahem, that is YOU Forgettable Dana.

It was altogether another interesting episode. I didn’t like that Han left before Dana or Vy but I guess, her effort was just too little too late to make it up in the eyes of the judges.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 Episode 4 Recap!

What can I say? I’m beauty and brains. – Adela

This is by far my favorite episode of the season. Things are shaping up a little bit from here where we see the ones most likely to face the chopping block in the coming weeks.

The rest of the girls went back to the house sans Jesslyn and you can pretty much feel the awkwardness between the “Loud Girls” and Mia. I honestly don’t get the hate towards Mia. I mean, so far she’s doing what she’s supposed to do in the competition. If anything, the “Loud Girls” AKA “Mean Girls” are the one instigating the drama against her which Pim started, FYI. I’m kind of quoting Kween Jade of ANTM here – this isn’t Asia’s Next Top Best Friend. It’s a competition ya’ll and so far, I’m not getting the “evil” edit these girls are trying to pin down on Mia.

Their challenge this week is a Rhythm Cycling Challenge. They were paired in a group of three where they will choreograph a routine and showcase their…well, rhythm. lol

Adela, Jach and Mia ended up winning this and they totally slayed that choreo!
I didn’t like Vy’s attitude here. She’s not very cooperative and she seems to get easily annoyed. I’ve a feeling that this attitude of hers would be her downfall.

The brief for this week’s shoot is for the girls to show their ugly-pretty face while posing with a partner inside a boxing ring. Mia was given the privilege to choose her partner for the shoot which raised the hackles of some of the girls like Adela, Jachin and Dana. Dana was absolutely livid when she was eventually chosen by Mia because she apparently “has good energy” during her initial shoot with Vy. Yeah right, but clever moves Mia! You Go girl! LOL

***

Okay, so my livestream got cut off while watching the episode and I decided to watch 1922 on Netflix instead. Lol. Anyway, it looks like the “quiet girls” are on a roll with ‘them’ getting the top 3 spot this week!

They were shot in pairs again (what’s up with this couple shoots anyway?) I’m guessing a beauty shoot real soon, hopefully a solo beauty shoot!

Adela the mother hen (kidding!) Definitely the one you’d most likely get advise from, lead the pack this week with a stunning photo that kinda reminded me of ANTM Cycle 15’s La Lucha Va Voom shoot with eventual winner Ann Ward getting the FCO (nostalgia, nostalgia…)

First Call Out: Adela

As you can see, Adela looks smashing here! Vy’s not to be left behind but due to her poor challenge score, she was relagated to the 8th place.


Mia’s second best photo is a well-deserved one. You have to wonder why everyone’s seems to be wary of her? What are the things the editors and producers aren’t showing the viewers that the girls are so bothered (threatened) about her presence???

This 3rd best photo from Beauty is absolutely stunning! She’s killing it!

I am not a fan of Pim & Jachin’s photo. I find it too bland.

Remove either one of them from the photo and it’d be a perfect shot. I still think they made the right choice of getting rid of Rubini. IMO, Han is more current that Rubini.

*Will update the recap once I get to watch the rest of the episode. Photos from Asia’s Next Top Model/ Facebook.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 Episode 3 Recap!

“I don’t want this competition to change me to someone I’m not” – Jesslyn.

So apparently, Jess is naturally evil. Lol. Kidding.

(Spoiler Alert!) I guess, I am just happy that she finally got the boot. Oops!

Bye Jess!

The episode this week was quick, fun and very interesting. The girls were in an Insta-race challenge where they would go to three assigned locations in Bangkok and each group will take Instagram-worthy photos with their Subaru car. Remember that Subaru will definitely have a say on who will eventually win this whole thing!!!

Thai rep Pim was paired with Vy and Jach and they did really well, it helps that Pim could easily asks the locals to help them. The group end up winning the challenge and had a fine dining dinner as their prize! Yasss! Slay that budget AsNTM! 😂

Another confrontation transpired with Jesslyn instigating it against Mia (yep, it’s Mia vs the Loud Girls Round 2) about being “human” and “friendship”. Really Jesslyn? I can see you all the way from where I was watching. It was just horrible. I am very disappointed with Jachin on how she took this situation. With Pim, she was the mastermind from last week’s Mia’s diary debacle so I’m not really surprised.

For the shoot this week, they have 2 props that may or may not overpower them – dogs and a Subaru car.

My favorite was Vy’s shoot. She was effortless and she looks absolutely divine during the shoot!

Struggling to get in the mood are Han, Beauty and Jesslyn. Sometimes, I feel that language barrier derails some of the girls.

At panel, the remaining girls looks absolutely wonderful. Can I just say, once and for all that Beauty is the most stunning model this cycle? I mean, that face is cosmetic brand-perfection!!!! She is indeed BEAUTIFUL!!!❤

Glenn Tan of Saburu is one of the judges and he adores Mia’s shot and gave her photo a perfect 10. Now, eat that Jesslyn! Hah!

Mia getting vindicated!

The ‘quiet girls’ pretty much had their vindication tonight with Mia and Vy getting the top 2 spots! Yay!!!

Dana and Jesslyn (3rd time in a row) found themselves in the bottom two and ultimately, the judges decided that Jess wasn’t cut for this competition! Yasss!!! So glad they got rid of the drama queen! Now the real competition begins!!!

Pim

Adela

Jachin

Dana failed to impressed!

Do you agree with the first call out: Mia and the eliminated contestant: Jesslyn this episode?

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 Episode 1 & Episode 2 Recap

Over the weekend, I was finally able to completely watch the first two episodes of the new season of Asia’s Next Top Model and so far, I am loving the models and the first two photoshoots.

There are initially fourteen girls vying for the title and two were promptly eliminated after their selfie-runway challenge. I really find that unfair, to be honest. They weren’t even given a chance to show what they’ve got!

It’s also interesting to note that the model mentors this cycle are three of the finalists in the earlier seasons of the show – Shikin and Minh Tu from Cycle 5 and Monika from Cycle 3! I’m not particularly convinced with these three but they would do. It looks like this one is going to be a very quick cycle.

The first episode requires them to posed with 3 kind of reptiles (an Iguana, a python and a baby crocodile). Some of them easily pulled it off while others are freaking out!

Beauty nailed this shot! Look at that face!!!

Most Favorite: Beauty, Jach, Mia
Least favorite: Adela, Jesslyn

Sharnie Fenn (Japan) got the lowest score in the challenge end up going home with her mediocre photo.

The second episode was the makeover episode. Nothing drastic for the girls. There’s the usual crybabies (me rolling my eyes at Adela’s pronouncement that she’s too cute with her hair).

The catfight also started brewing when Pim discovered Mia is keeping a diary with all of the contestants name in it. I liked Pim at first but what she did here was inexcusable. She’s actually the one who started the drama with Jesslyn and Mia. What a bitch.

Episode 2 photoshoot was shot in pair and I absolutely loved the black/white swan concept! I absolutely adore Jach’s and Mia’s photo! So far, I think they are my favorite!

Jach sitting like a kween!

Most Favorite: Jach
Least favorite: Jesslyn

Eliminated: Iko (Indonesia)

I think it’s safe to say at this point that they’re simply keeping Jesslyn for the drama. I hope she goes home next. Ta!

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 4 Episode 3 Makeovers – The Girl Who Got Cut [Recap]

Sang-In delivering some Korean fierceness!

Sang-In delivering some Korean fierceness!

Lourd Ramos is back ya’ll for the dreaded makeover episode! The TRESemmé top stylist will be spearheading yet again the girls’ new look in the hopes of becoming Asia’s Next Top Model!

The makeover scene as usual is nothing short of a drama-fest with girl crying over their precious hair. Let the pictures speak for themselves yeah?

The photoshoot is for the girls’ comp card (composite card) and a lot of girls are stepping up their game if I may just say! Angie and Sang-In are probably my favorite during the shoot! They’re totally giving it all! Sang In just look flawless, tbh! Julian was a-ok as well as Aldilla but I thought the shots just look meh – I hope the final photos are good tho. Wow at Gwen’s photo! Her makeover just worked for her if I may say so. Alaiza look bored af but and those eyebrows just won’t quit! The good thing about this photoshoot is that the girl were allowed to pick two of what they thought is their best photos to be included in their comp card. Speaking of digging their own graves. LOL One of the remaining girls I didn’t mention are home-bound I guess…

And wouldn’t you know it, my homegirls and my favorite Mai Ngo found themselves at the bottom this week! OMFG!!!!!! I think the spoilers I’ve read from before are correct. This is like the *shittiest* moment of the cycle!

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 4 Episode 2 – The Girl Who Bounced Back (Recap)

Angie is soaring high this week!

Angie is soaring high this week!

The episode last night was a fairly quick one with a rather predictable call-out order although I’ve to disagree with the girl who got the first call out this time.

Mai Ngo was not a big hit with the girls during the first episode so she apologized to the rest of the girls about her attitude. I honestly thought that she shouldn’t have because she’s just keeping it real. If they cannot handle it, they can just back off. Gwen was all about making up from her epically disastrous first week which almost see her leaving the competition.

The challenge was to test their composure whilst jumping on a trampoline, which is also connected with their next photoshoot. Angie won the challenge deservingly so with Gwen tailing her – good for Gwen! At said challenge, poor Jessica sprained her ankle leaving her with zero and you would think that this is the start of her downfall yeah?

Challenge Scores
Angie 8.8 WINNER!
Gwen 8.3
Julian 7.5
Aldilla 7.1
Mai Ngo 7
Alaiza 7
Patricia 6.8
Sang-In 6
Tawan 5.8
May 5
Tuti 4.5
Tugs 4
Jessica 0

As for their photoshoot, the remaining girls are to jump off the trampoline while posing elegantly – basically – the challenge only it is with more make-up and better clothing! Haha! The pictures are pretty good actually and they reminded me of Flights of Fancy episode from the first and (so far) only cycle of the Philippines’ Next Top Model. I thought that is one of the best shoots of any Top Model franchise ever!

Going back to the shoot, it wasn’t a spectacular session for Tuti and Tugs because apparently – they just cannot get in the groove. I honestly thought Jessica should’ve packed her bags right away…oops! I know, spoiler alert! But cmon’ she didn’t actually did the brief of the shoot so even during the challenge, I could understand what Gwen was yapping about.

Okay, as for the first call out. As I’ve said – I disagree with the judges choices and I cannot believe Kelly just gave Mai Ngo an 8!!! Cmon’ Kelly!!! You know, that’s a 10!!!! And of course, Mai Ngo’s challenge score was a deterrent for her to get the top spot. This is why I don’t like this scoring system!!!

I was really sad for the girl who left last night though but yeah – it’s a competition I know but I thought she deserved another chance!

Call-Out Order
Angie – Total score: 38.8
Mai Ngo – Total score: 35.0
Julian – Total score: 34.5
