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.

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 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???

I just love how Nicole's working her face!

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

Janice

I do not like her at all. This photo isn’t very good to begin with. She look one dimensional in my opinion.

Jihye

Jihye

I feel that the dress is too much for her. She’s drowning in this shot.

Jodilly

Jodilly

Biases aside, I think my homegirl’s killing it! The hidden hand was a bit distracting but overall, I’d say that this is a really great shot!

Josephine

Josephine

I love Josephine’s bone structure. She can do better than this and I’m putting this shot in the upper tier.

Katarina

Katarina

The ever-so feisty Katja! I totally love her personality but I feel that she’s not bringing it! She’s without question the prettiest in the house but “pretty” can only get you further.

Marie

Marie

I feel that she’s being safe but girl has got it!

Natalie

Natalie

I liked it. I’m just worried that she looks really short which doesn’t help her at all since she’s only 5’7.”

I'm surprised by Nicole. She's giving me a supermodel aura. I love the position of her legs as well as her face!!! Lovely!

Poojaa (Challenge Winner)

I love this shot. I thought it’s very elegant. Not digging her look but her posture’s quite nice.

Sheena

Now, this is fierce baby!! Go Sheena!

Sneha

She overdid it so there. It didn’t work at all.

Thao

I love Thao! I love how she photographs and her face is just to die for! It’s very interesting!

Tia

I’m not really digging it! Tia’s not a model, I’m sorry.

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.

The first photoshoot is for the show’s opening credits. Josephine was the most consistent so far so we have to watch out for this bis. She’s amazing! During the judging panel, a new judge was introduced – the Harper’s BAZAAR, Singapore & Harper’s BAZAAR Malaysia Creative Director Kenneth Goh. Hmmm?

Do you think the right girls went home last night? Methinks yes. I love that Elektra’s a character but I didn’t see that much from her as a model during the premier episode. So there you have it folks. Tune in again next week Wednesday 9:40 PM on StarWorld and catch it locally on TV 5 on January 16, 9:00 PM.
