Team AsNTMWho’s excited for tonight’s final episode of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3? Who are you rooting to win the top plum? Are you Team Aimee, Team Gani or Team Monika?

“At the spectacular season 3 finale runway, only one will become Asia’s Next Top Model. Will it be Monika from the Philippines? Gani from Indonesia? Or Aimee from Singapore?”

Check out this finale promo

So folks, don’t miss the finale tonight at 8:45 PM on StarWorld Asia.



The season started with 14 hopefuls and tonight we’re down to three lovely ladies all vying for the right to be Asia’s Next Top Model!

The three finalists all went to dinner with the panel – Georgina, Alex and Joey – and shared their future endeavors. Awee…

The girls will be having their final “Haute Couture” photoshoot at Fullerton Hotel Singapore.

A rep from Storm Model Management will also be present at the shoot and will be joining the final judging.

Monika’s overthinking the shoot – feeling all the pressure! OMG! C’mon girl!

Aimee’s totally killing the shoot! I loved that dress! And Alex was beaming all over the shoot! The photographer Jean-Baptiste Fort even mentioned that he would like to work with Aimee in the future…yay! Another hometown win??! ^^

Yikes! Is this Gani choking?

The final runway will be held at Chijmes Hall!! Yay!

Eliminated contestants were brought back… where’s Amanda??? Oh and there’s Jodilly and Sheena from the previous season.

Monika’s a natural in the runway. Gani looks short but amazing!

Aimee’s totally getting everything right – even closing the mock runway show! Hhmmm…

Panel time… who’s it gonna be?

MonikaThem judges loved Monika’s photo!!! The rep from Storm thought Monika can do anything! Yay!

AimeeThe also loved Aimee!!! Her shot and her walk!!!! Am I smelling a win from her?

Gani AyuGani’s shot was fantastic and it’s my personal favorite amongst the three! Panel said she’s a classic Asian model… prompting Perry to say that if Gani’s a bit taller – she could walk any runway worldwide.

The panel is now deliberating…

The Storm rep totally loves Aimee!!!! I think she’s winning this…

Panel said Monika want it the most but lacks x-factor. 😦 so not winning this but I hope I’m wrong.

Alex Perry’s harping on Gani’s height. Same issue all throughout the season.  – could win this.

And the winner of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 is…

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 Episode 12 – Harper’s BAZAAR Photoshoot & Final Three [June 10, 2015]

Final Four GirlsFor tonight’s episode, the final four girls will try to charm their clients as they go into casting and will prove their worth as cover girls as they pose for their “possible” Harper’s Bazaar’s cover which will be part of the winner’s package.

gettin' ready for casting!

gettin’ ready for casting!

Aimee, Barbara, Gani and Monika will be donning fashion styles through the eras and with Kenneth Goh, the Editor-In-Chief of the magazine himself observing the shoot and joining the panel, the girls need to step up their A-game if they want to be part of the series’ finale.

Tune in tonight at 8:45PM on STAR World Asia but for now, you can check out the Episode 12 promo.


The four girls went directly to their go-sees. Kenneth Goh thought Barbara lacks confidence which is her main issue (the girl has been a working model for a long time it’s a wonder why she still lacks self-confidence). The casting includes clients from Pois and Liv Lo, Braun Buffel and Triumph with Barbara and Gani getting the worst critiques from both clients and Kenneth.

As expected, Monika won this go-see challenge – reliable model right? And she got prizes from the clients and wanna know who’s hating?? hahaha

At the photoshoot, the rest of the girls struggles a lot while trying to depict fashion styles from different era. I’m honestly not liking this shoot much and I hope they would re-shoot it whoever wins. By gods, it’s totally not working!

At panel, the judges are trying to analyze the models’ potentials.

Gani Ayu

The best photo went to Gani (garnering her third first call out in the season) – now the question is, will this be a repeat of season 2 and will Gani overcome the panel’s criticism about being of a short stature?

Monika Sta. Maria

Monika took second best photo with Kenneth Goh envisioning her doing well in the European market. Is this an indication for a win and a possible trip to London for Monika in the future? I hope so.

Aimee Bradshaw

The third girl to advance in next week’s final episode is Aimee! I loved Aimee and like Georgina said, I also think that she’s the smartest model in the house.

Barbara Katsuki

Barbara loses her steam for the final stretch in the competition. It’s a sad thing really for her to leave the competition – like she’s almost there. But hey, good things comes for those who waits. I’m pretty sure, a lot of great things are ahead of her future! (it’s like you never stopped working at all) Keep the cash rollin’ girl!

With Barbara leaving us…who do you think will claim victory next Wednesday?

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 Episode 11 with the Final Four Models and Season’s Recap [June 3, 2015]

Last week’s episode left us hanging with Barbara and Amanda facing the chopping board pre-final four. Monika yet again killed the Subaru motion editorial shoot getting her fourth first call out while Amanda and Barbara failed to deliver. So the girl who will not be continuing her journey in the competition is none other than Amanda… it was a great run for my homegirl and I couldn’t be any prouder!!! I’m pretty sure you’ll have a bright future in modeling!

So this week’s episode is basically a recap of the whole season pre-finale with never before seen footage from the girls.

The big question is – who among Aimee, Barbara, Gani and Monika will make it through the final runway?

L-R: Aimee, Barbara, Gani, Monika

L-R: Aimee, Barbara, Gani, Monika

Final Four

The finale will be airing on 06.17.2015 at 0845PM.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 Episode 10 The Girl in the Driver’s Seat Part 1 [May 27, 2015]

Fab Five - Barbara, Monika, Gani, Amanda and Aimee

Fab Five – Barbara, Monika, Gani, Amanda and Aimee

After Tahlia’s departure from the show, we are now down to five girls battling it out to becoming Asia’s Next Top Model!

For their challenge, the girls met Joey and Alex at the Mariner of the Sea cruise ship where the girls will be showing off their runway skills (again) and are given three looks to model with a minute to change each look.

The two pinays (Amanda and Monika) were unable to walk one of their looks. So with the other three girls walking the three outfits – Aimee won the challenge! Yay!

Gani’s (especially) and Barbara were throwing shades towards Amanda citing Alex Perry always saving her from the getting the boot. Uh – girls – jealous much? I totally loved the cattiness though! LOL

At the shoot, the girls are doing motion editorial for Subaru! Acting! Acting! Aimee looks wonderful as a businesswoman and she did wonderful. Gani’s arhitect portrayal was rather dismal at the beginning but finally got it in the end. Barbara was a baker and it was just all kinds of awkward to be honest. She looks awesome but it feels like she doesn’t know what she’s doing! Amanda’s a tennis coach and it was just all over the place. Then there’s beauty queen-ish Monika killing the shoot!!! Damn girl!

Aimee easy demeanor at the commercial was beautiful obviously! She was amazing at the shoot!

Amanda’s shot was lackluster at best IMO. I loved baby A but I think at times her age goes against her. And dang! The client doesn’t like Amanda’s shot at all.

Barbara has got it all and she needs to have that confidence which is such a shame because she totally looks great despite the awkwardness of the shoot!

Gani’s “Not bad but not the best” and I’m in total agreement with the panel.

Monika. Need I say more? *clap* *clap* *clap*

First Call Out: Monika YAY! KILLIN’ IT!

  1. Aimee
  2. Gani

Bottom Two: Barbara and Amanda


To be continued…


I loved both girls and I dunno who I think should leave but at the end of the day, I’d save my homegirl anyday.

(was that a spoiler I saw at next episode’s preview when Amanda was crying while hugging Georgina? Arrrhhhggg!!!)

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.



Getting into the groove! Finally! A well-deserved best photo of the week!



“kung maganda ka sigaw na sige!”



I can actually see this girl winning and doing a “Jessica” on us…



She’s all about the bass baby! I actually loved this shot of Aimee! Neck down was perfection!



What a beautiful face but totally uninspired pose!



I’m actually not surprised at all with Tahlia getting the boot. I’d say, she’s got it coming for her. But hey, goodluck girl!

First Call Out: Amanda
2. Monika
3. Barbara
4. Aimee
5. Gani

Eliminated: Tahlia

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 – Episode 8 The Girl on a Mission

The result of this episode was almost predictable but it’s still fun to see how Melissa’s (shocking!!!!!) elimination stirred some animosity between the girls.

Gani’s confessions are fun to watch because she’s such a catty diva!!! She really isn’t holding back during confessions. Aimee’s not that happy Melissa went home over Tahlia (ditto girl)

At the challenge, the girls were asked to recreate runway hair trends with Monika impressing Tresemmé stylist Giovanni Wihayak and Gani struggling to recreated her assigned look. This was an important challenge though because the girl who wins this will have an immunity from elimination and that is none other than Monika.

Tahlia also had some health concerns concerning breast lumps which was really worrying because her mom and granny passed away from breast cancer. 😦

At the photoshoot, the girls showcased their hair while wearing creations by Filipino designer Rajo Laurel (beautiful creations btw!)

The rest of the girls received unanimous praises from the panel save for KB and Amanda.



A well-deserved FCO for Tahlia – girl’s working it!!! That hair! That hair!



I thought this was Barbara’s best photo next to her Subaru shot! She’s gearing up to go on top! Just amazing!



Not really loving this shot of Aimee. It’s too bland for me.



Out of all the girls, I thought Amanda has got all the goods to deliver but this was just mediocre at best. What happened baby A?



Gani’s bone structure is to die for and man’ she’s stepping it up. Final Four calling for her???



Face-wise, I thought this was her best shot but as a whole – this just didn’t work for the brief of the shoot. Unfair much or girl just didn’t deliver?



About time girl. Bye.

Call Out Order
FCO: Tahlia
Eliminated: KB

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 Episode 7 Photoshoot – The Girl Who Finally Cracks

This week’s episode left me reeling after one of my favorite models in any cycle of this franchise was ousted!!! Ouch!!!!

Things are heating up between Monika and Gani (unknowingly yeah? lols). The filipina model who landed at the bottom last week also patch things up with Tahlia which I’m not quite convinced from both sides tbh.

At the ridiculous very top model posing challenge with a hoola hoop, my dear, dear Melissa totally killed it  – lol – so crazy but so cute!!!

At the shoot, a big prize is up for grabs because the numero uno girl in said shot will be the new ambassador of Subaru – whew! pretty big!!!

During the shoot, Gani was okay but I’m starting to rethink my opinion about her. Amanda’s doing great IMO minus her blinking problems. Barbara was amazing so as Monika – yeah – what a revenge right??? This is Aimee’s worst shot IMO and Tahlia was just there – mediocre at best. And my dear Melissa ohlawd!

Monika is back on top!

Monika is back on top!

First Call Out – Monika and became the newest ambassador of Subaru along with Barbara!!!


This is beyond what I expected from Barbara! She’s stunning! Just stunning!



Aimee’s theme is Wild along with Gani, I thought she delivered but it’s just too tame IMO



Gawd! Cutie Amanda looks “powerful” enough for me here! And Georgina, please this girl has got more potential than your favorite! *cough*



This is a great shot but I don’t see powerful here.



I honestly do not know what to make of KB  – she’s just sailing in the middle of the competition at this stage and girl needs to step up!



Say hallo to Monika for me girl ^_^



“I can’t believe what you said to me last night we were alone……”

2. Barbara
3. KB
4. Gani
5. Amanda
6. Aimee
7. Tahlia

Eliminated: Melissa (can you actually believe this guys??? she’s like one of the strongest model in the competition arrrggghhhhh!!!!!!)

I need some time to get over this loss….
