Good morning, dear readers!
When our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens guested on Aksyon TV’s Aksyon Sa Umaga morning program with hosts Manu Sandejas and Jun Sabayton, little did they know that it will be such a fun-filled laugh trip of an appearance as they were fielded funny/offbeat questions that brought out their comic side.
Pia, Janicel, Christi, Rogelie, Ann, Hannah and Kim were game enough to play around as you can see in the video below. Pardon the quality of the same.

Miss World 2013 Megan Young (center) with the cast members of GMA-7’s remake of MariMar
Miss World 2013 Megan Young is now a Primetime Lead Actress as the new MariMar
Miss World 2013 Megan Young has now officially entered a new phase in her life as a celebrity. After the recent announcement of the cast members of GMA-7’s remake of MariMar, she has been ushered in to the role of a Primetime lead starrer that will pair her with Hunk actor Tom Rodriguez.
It remains to be seen how she will approach the role made famous by Mexican actress Thalia and the beautiful Marian Rivera. But based on the video clip below, she still wants to inject her own brand of charm for the role so as not to be totally compared with her predecessors. She will definitely watch the original and the first local remake, but just so that she will get a good feel of what the role will fully require of her.

Best of luck in this new chapter in your career, Megan! :-D

Who will follow Jessica of Season 1 and Sheena of Season 2?
Tonight is the night when Asia’s Next Top Model S3 will be finally known after months of weekly challenges and eliminations that left only three (3) contenders in the hunt for the victory. Only one among Ayu Gani of Indonesia, Monika Sta. Maria of the Philippines and Aimee Rose Cheng-Bradshaw of Singapore will have the honor of becoming this season’s top placer – the Asian model who will drive home a brand-new Subaru XV STI, become the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore and land a contract with Storm Models of London. Spoilers have flooded the internet weeks before the finale. But then again, you will need to watch the show to find out if prior buzz is indeed true.
So tune in to Star World at 8:45PM to witness everything.
Here’s the promo teaser:
Barbara of Japan suffered the cruelest cut when she got eliminated right before the Season Finale next week
During Episode 12 of Asia’s Next Top Model S3, we finally learned that Barbara Akemi Katsuki of Japan was the last girl to be eliminated right before the final runway show of the Season Finale next Wednesday. It was a bittersweet end to her journey in the reality search as she went through a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows before finally mustering enough strength and confidence to bounce back and prove that experience still reigns in the modeling world. Sadly, she wasn’t meant to be part of the whole thing till the end.
Will Monika be it for Season 3?
We saw last Wednesday how the three (3) other girls – Monika, Gani and Aimee
– excelled in their respective go-sees and Harper’s Bazaar photoshoots. They sealed their way to the top tier and insured that only one among them deserves to become Asia’s Next Top Model of Season 3.
Who will finally make it among them?
So who could really be the ultimate winner? Which among Monika, Gani and Aimee will get that midway cut during the final show like what happened to Season 2’s Katarina? Which two girls will really lord it over everyone else and make that one last sprint to win the brand-new Subaru XV STI, commercial endorsement as the face of TRESemme and the prized contract with London-based Storm Model Management?
Well, there’s only one way to find out! And it will all come to an explosive finale on June 17.

Asia's Next Top Model S3 Top 4 (left to right): Monika, Aimee, Gani and Barbara
Episode 11 of Asia’s Next Top Model S3 was an hour filled with a series of one-on-ones when host Georgina Wilson and mentor Joey Mead King took turns in personally interviewing the final four (Monika, Aimee, Barbara and Gani
) and revealing some never-before-heard details from each one of them. If you missed this one, click HERE
Amanda was eliminated right before the Top 4.
Did you know that Gani was bullied as a kid? Yes she was. And about Aimee’s weight gain during the show? She really couldn’t care less. At least not during taping because she knows it is impossible to lose the pounds in so short a time. Barbara and Monika also had their share of issues, but it was the latter’s pick of Ayu (her ‘nemesis’ in the model house
) as potential winner (other than herself
) that somehow gave viewers an idea of how her personality works.
Tonight, the Top 4 will go to their important go-sees/castings with three different Singapore-based clients/brands (Pois Boutique, Braun Buffel and Triumph) to see who will get the most number of bookings. They will also get their crucial Harper’s Bazaar photoshoot with Kenneth Goh.
The Top 4 during the lengthy judges' deliberation you will see tonight
