Just like Season 2, Asia’s Next Top Model S3 (set to premiere on Star World next month) will have two (2) Philippine contenders – Monika Sta. Maria and Franchesca Denise Lagua.
You might remember Monika as the former Century Tuna Superbods finalist whom I blogged before as a potential Bb. Pilipinas candidate. Franchesca, on the other hand, is a fashion model whose latest stints were the Bench Underwear Show “The Naked Truth” and Philippine Fashion Week.
Let’s see if these two ladies have what it takes to match the 2-3 punch of Jodilly Pendre and Katarina Rodriguez prior, or perhaps, get to the top position for one of them. I have my confidence in one of them. Not so sure about the other girl, though, since I’m not that familiar with her (don’t take this as a spoiler, please).
Of course, if there’s one thing worth looking forward to in S3, it’s the inaugural hosting of Georgina Wilson who took over the responsibilities of Nadya Hutagalung. ;-)
Miss Earth 2013 Alyz Henrich
Is Miss Earth 2013 Alyz Henrich open to joining Philippine showbiz? Not now, but maybe after she relinquishes her crown.
Do Miss Venezuela winners get lifetime pensions and free houses? Do they enroll in a school for beauty queens? Is it a must for them to undergo cosmetic surgery?
Our 2013 Earth Warrior answered these questions during her TV guesting on Aquino & Abunda Tonight. And I can say now that her English has improved. And she can take on host Boy Abunda more confidently this time around. Watch. ;-)

Earlier in the day, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago had another TV guesting. This time around, it was with ANC’s Headstart where she was interviewed by host Lexi Schulze. Watch the video below and see how our Poland-bound girl is becoming more and more at ease in front of the camera. ;-)

Georgina Wilson will host Season 3 of Asia's Next Top Model
On her Instagram account (@ilovegeorgina
), beautiful Georgina Wilson proudly announced that she will be the new host of Asia’s Next Top Model. Season 3, that is.
Expect the next cycle to be fiercer, and with an anticipated rise in following here in the Philippines. After all, anything with the gorgeous Georgina is always a magnet for watchers and pageant followers alike. Your blogger included, even if I have been a big fan of the show ever since it started.
So do I finally see a Filipina taking Season 3 all the way to the top? Why not? Season 1 has Jessica Amornkuldilok for Thailand winning when Nadya Hutagalung started hosting. A new lady at the helm might do wonders for our bet/s. ;-)
Yvethe with her mom before going live for A&A Tonight
Last night, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2014 Yvethe Marie Santiago was interviewed on ABS-CBN’s Aquino & Abunda Tonight since her upcoming stint in Miss Supranational 2014 is just a little over two weeks away.
Sans co-host Kris Aquino, Boy Abunda and our Queen had a meatier one-on-one which lasted for practically five full minutes.
Watch the video of her guesting. Afterwards, I would appreciate getting your impressions on how Yvethe is registering now in your eyes. ;-)

The other night, Miss World Philippines 2014 Valerie Weigmann guested on “Tonight With Arnold Clavio” (TWAC) on GMA News TV. For a change, we saw her softly humorous side instead of the constantly formal and graceful beauty we are used to seeing.
There was even a phone-patch interview with Paolo Ballesteros who was the one who really convinced Val to join a beauty contest.
Do watch the TV guesting now.

If you watched the morning show “Umagang Kay Ganda
” on ABS-CBN earlier in the day, you will have seen the final TV guesting of Miss International 2013 and Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti before they leave for Tokyo, Japan this coming weekend.
The two beautiful ladies were actually in the segment where they exhibited some relevant beauty queen gym exercises that are helpful in maintaining their shapely bodies.
In the following days, they will be busy as Queen Bees. Bea Rose will start packing her luggages, while Bianca – whose competition wardrobe has already been prepared and packed by the BPCI team – will get ready for her (Strictly by Invitation) Official Send-Off at Araneta Center tomorrow afternoon.
P.S. Let’s have some good clean fun in the meantime. Try putting a caption on the big photo of Bea Rose and Bianca above. ;-)
