It was such an exhilirating first season of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 1. Sure, there were bumps at the onset, but they were all straightened out as the show progressed.
The Finale Party at Resorts World Sentosa was a blast. All the models, save for Kate who was a no-show or probably didn’t make it to Singapore on time, enjoyed the proceedings and bonded like long-lost sisters. Host Nadya Hutagalung, mentor Joey Mead King and resident photographer Todd Anthony Tyler gamely played along and made sure that the event punctuated the first season with a big bang and a rain of confettis.
Despite the sprinkling of friction and slight animosity between winner Jessica and the other model-contenders, everything finished off fine as they all strutted their stuff, while looking after each other. I’m just curious why Kate didn’t make the effort to attend the party? Was she really heartbroken after losing in the finale?
Nadya, Joey and Todd should definitely sign on for Cycle 2 (if ever a second season gets produced). As for Daniel, I would love seeing less of him blowing his top, and focus on giving tactfully-delivered constructive directions instead of shouting/biotching at the ladies. I also expect this quartet to be comparatively relaxed and less acquiesced the next time around.
That’s all for Season 1. After making all the weekly updates (for love of the show), I will take a much-needed breather first. As extra treat for Stephanie fans and supporters, below is her Canon Ixus commercial shot during the last ep.
Thank you to everyone for making Asia’s Next Top Model such a popular and highly-viewed topic in my blog! 🙂
