I rarely watch TV these days, but there is one TV show I follow (and watch on Youtube) and that is Asia’s Next Top Model. The girls are nice, a show that is competitive in nature yet the girls remain friends. Some fans say the judges are mean, though in my opinion, they are not really that mean except for one which I am not so sure of. I am quite please with the show and I rarely disagree with the judges.
Most of the Filipino bloggers are making their wish list on who should be the next Miss Universe Philippines (of course, so close to the crown and we want it this year already!). I would not follow the trend yet, though I had a handful number of ladies that I like and might be featured soon on this blog. So for the meantime, I am doing this post.
I am bit late to do these, but here are my thoughts so far from Episodes 1-7. The Photos are not mine. Check this page for update: Asia’s Next Top Model
This might be long. Sorry. Click the Episode will redirect you to Youtube
Introduction by Nadya made me feel so excited. I would say the girls are pretty and I would like to name some: Sofia, Aastha, Monica and Kate. In Runway Challenge, the girls that I liked are Jessica, Aastha and the challenge winner, Trang. I like Trang’s hair and Filantropi’s unique name.
The girls seem so nice. I admire Trang for sharing her price with the girls. I admit that if I were her, it will be all mine (yeah, I sound so selfish, hehe;P).
Helena’s photo as top photo is well deserved though for me, I choose Stephanie as best photo.
I would say that some girls look stiff, like Sofia. Trang is good, but she is not that quirky.
Others need to be more quirky like Jee and Filantropi
As for the worst, I agree with the judges as they chose Kyla to be eliminated.
Best Photo: Helena
Bottom 2: Melissa and Kyla
Surprises. One is, Stephany is already a mom. With her physique fit for modeling, who would have thought that?
Second is, too bad to see Monica go home. The only thing I could thank for is no one was eliminated, since Stephany was in the bottom two. If Monica and Rachel was in roll call, both of them will be called somewhere in the middle because their photos are not bad. Jee could be the girl eliminated in that week.
Best photo, no doubt is Aastha.
Worst photo for me is Melissa and she should have been in Bottom 2 instead of Stephany.
Best Photo: Aastha
Bottom 2: Jee and Stephanie
Eliminated: No one, but Monica has to go and quit for some reasons.
Makeovers! My favorites, in no particular order:
Helena Chan of Hong Kong
Jessica Amornkuldilok of Thailand
Stephanie Retuya of the Philippines
Jee Choi of Korea
Rachel Erasmus of India
Aastha Pokharel of Nepal
Nadya was right with Aastha’s look, it looks better than her. And did we relate to her when she had to say good bye to her long locks? I like it when Nadya said frankly “No, you’re not ok”. This scene reminded me the times whenever I try to hide my emotion to my friends and they will tell me, “No, you’re not ok” and will hug me.
Best photo is no doubt Helena. Stephany and Rachel also did well.
Melissa’s photo create the illusion of floating, not bad. Jee’s horns look freaky for me, but of course she did well.
The rest gave ok-ish photos. Picking the worst will be harder, since I have Filantropi, Trang and Bei Si. At the end, Bei Si was out which one fan thought was ironic: Chinese Zodiac and the Chinese girl in the competition was eliminated.
Best Photo: Helena
Bottom 2; Aastha and Bei Si
Eliminated: Bei Si
Joey exudes sexiness! I think Helena really did well though in the photo shoot, she overdo it. One lesson to learn: Focus and just do the very best you can. Don’t go overboard on thinking to be on top.
Jason Godfrey, the sexy host in Miss Earth 2011, is one attractive man. The girls where little bit shy around him. Some of the girls may be of European descent, but the shy nature and less aggressive attitude is a mark of an Asian girl.
Best photo for me is Aastha.
Worst photo for me is Filantropi.
Best Photo: Sofia
Bottom 2 and Eliminated: Filantropi and Jee
