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.

Jodilly is showing power here! She knows her angle and I love how she play with her hands! BB Jodilly rocking like a boss!

While I'm a fan of Josephine, I thought this shot was her weakest to date. Waist up was really good but she just look short in here.

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!

I love Marie here! I thought the pose was a bit stiff but it was not boring. She isn't showing much facial expression but that body is going on forever!

Natalie received the first call out last week and she came up this episode with a uninspired photo. It just looks so awkward!

It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of Tia but kudos to her for winning this week’s challenge and sharing it with Janice. Good for you girls!
