Since Asia’s Next Top Model S3 is a competition with only one winner in the end, weekly eliminations are inevitable. And it was only a matter of time before the first of three (3) Filipinas in the show will be shown the exit door. Episode 5 became the curtain call of Franchesca Lagua, the first to be booted out from Team Philippines.
And while another Filipina – Monika Sta. Maria – continues to slay the others by winning Best Photo for the second consecutive week, the removal of a best friend has left her in tears.
This episode was all about close-up shots and somehow, the catalogue-ish appeal of Franchesca spelled doom for her right from the start of the hour. In the end, she was actually in the bottom two together with another Filipina, Amanda. The latter, however, showed guest judge Daniel Mananta her true anger (which the Indonesian celebrity was forcing out of her in an earlier challenge) that pushed the utterance of the ‘F’ word while she was unleashing a mouthful. Interestingly, that reaction saved her from getting the ax.
Episode 6 will be about running out of luck and having an age crisis. As to which girls these phrases will be attributed to, you’ll need to watch tonight. ;-)
Below is a teaser of the next.
