Malaysian model Sheena Liam was adjudged the winner of the second cycle of the modeling reality show, Asia’s Next Top Model. Liam bested 15 other finalists for the title including Filipino models Jodilly Pendre and Katarina Rodriguez as runners-up.
With her win, Sheena will be receiving a three-month contract with Storm Model Management in London, the chance to appear in a spread and on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore and Malaysia, a cash prize from FOX International Broadcast, a Subaru XV car, and the chance of becoming the new face of TRESemmé for one of their 2014 campaigns.
So there you have it folks! Sheena battled all the odds to win it all!!! Congratulations as well to our homegirls Katarina and Jodilly!
After twelve weeks, the competition is now down to three girls battling it out to be this season’s Asia’s Next Top Model. Sheena is the girl who could give you good pictures but not good enough to clinch the top spot of any shoot from the past episodes. So are we up for a mediocre finish from this driven Malaysian model or is she ready to give it all for the final show and deliver a stunning photo and topple the competition? Katarina on the other hand have shown that she’s not only the face of the competition but she could also be a threat for the title by delivering some outstanding shots that catapult her on top getting two first call-outs that ultimately led her to the finale. Is she peaking a little too late or will Katarina battle it out like there’s no tomorrow and prove to everyone that she’s really the right gal for the title? Or is it going to be fellow Filipina finalist Jodilly, whose height, runway skills and sunny personality be the formidable force that will hinder the dreams of the other two to win the coveted title? Delivering outstanding photo after another, Jodilly’s versatility did not go unnoticed in the competition by receiving two best photo award and winning some of the challenges. Will this be enough for this sweet gal from the Philippines to win it all or are we still up for more come final showdown?
Four girls are still in the competition and this time, it’s anybody’s ballgame. Malaysian girl Sheena is still very much alive after a top finish last episode wanting to prove herself. Japanese Marie on the other hand is still trying to stay afloat despite steep competition. Meanwhile, the two aspiring top model from the Philippines – Jodilly and Katarina – are on a roll, keeping it strong in the hopes of becoming Asia’s Next Top Model.
This is no doubt Katja’s best shot to date – as in EVER! I’m just glad that she peaked at the right time. This is really smashing and I could totally see this in any fashion magazine! Her left fingers are just a bit weird but overall, I love how dynamic her shot was!
Wow! Jodillycious! This is Jodilly showing her sensual side and those legs are just never-ending! She’s totally selling the dress and those shoes! Work it girl!
I do not like this shot at all. I like Sheena as a model but this isn’t just working for me. I thought the styling doesn’t suit her and the posing was just awkward. She could’ve given more.
I love the dynamic of Marie’s photo but I’m not sold by her body movements which looks a bit awkward that it’s almost stiff.
First Call Out: Katarina
Bottom Two: Sheena & Marie
So with the judges decision to let go of Marie, the finale was set witj Katarina, Jodilly and Sheena to battle it out for the ultimate prize. So who’s it going to be?
During the second week when Nicole ultimately went on top!
As per Asia’s Next Top Model official statement: Due to the recent events surrounding flight MH370 and out of respect and sensitivity for those affected, this episode of #AsNTM2 was not televised as it was filmed in collaboration with Malaysia Airlines. Please enjoy the following episode, which has been edited to ensure continuity.
Here’s that edited episode
I’m actually quite shock that Nicole actually got the boot. I thought out of the remaining girls, she along with Jodilly were the strongest model in the house. In the recap you can see that Cycle 1 winner Jessica Amornkuldilok visited them and gave them some tips on walking the runway. Anyhow, I think it was a wise and quite sensible for them not to televise the whole thing.
Call Out Order
Bottom 2: Katarina and Nicole
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.
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.
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!
I thought Josephine looked great in this dress. My only problem is that it looked so catalogue-ish.
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!
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?
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.
Call Out Order
First Call Out: Jodilly
Bottom Two: Josephine and Nicole
