For a change, the Philippines is one of a few countries with more than one contender in Season 2 of the successful reality model competition “Asia’s Next Top Model”. And the good thing is that the looks of our entries are of two different types – the morena (Jodilly Pendre) and the mestiza (Catarina Rodriguez).
Jodilly is from the University of Santo Tomas and has been modeling for a number of years now. Catarina Rodriguez, on the other hand, is a ramp and photographic newbie with very little professional experience as a model. She has been focusing more on her studies at De La Salle University until the offer to screen and get signed up for the show came along.
Sixteen (16) competitors from all over Asia will join host Nadya Hutagalung for the sophomore season of the show which will seek to find the new face to grace fashion shows and commercial ads, just like Jessica Amornkuldilok of Thailand who won Season 1 with her runner-up Stephanie Retuya of the Philippines.
And for Season 2, the producers learned their lessons well. They have already installed cameras all over the model’s quarters in order to follow their moves and small talks 24/7. They admit to having missed out on a lot of juicy tidbits about the contestants that would have made for better TV viewing.
Watch out for the premiere of Asia’s Next Top Model Season 2 on Star World starting January 8, 2014. This blogger will follow the whole program once more to give you weekly updates. 😉
