It was a successful Media Launch of Mossimo Bikini Summit 2017 Model Supremacy that was held at The Penthouse 8747 yesterday afternoon, what with the combined forces of the global clothing brand with Direk Bernard Y. Maybituin and Team Lumina Events Management PH plus the brains behind the original model search Direk Calvin Neria.
Former winners and finalists Angelo Cacciatore, Janelle Olafson, Benj Bolivar, Dex Quindoza and Mark Manicad graced the event to share their stories and how being part of the competition helped shape their respective careers.

There are several elements that make this return different aside from the big cash prizes and packages (which include condominium units and cars for the top male and female winners
). Lucrative modeling contracts also await the most outstanding finishers in both divisions.
Regional searches will be conducted in Dagupan, Cebu, Davao Bohol and Metro Manila to determine the cast of 32 Official Candidates who will go through the training and mentorship of Stefano Churchill (from America’s Next Top Model) and Monika Sta. Maria (from Asia’s Next Top Model).
From there, pocket show challenges will be held in key cities of the country where eliminations will happen (from the original 16 girls and 16 guys) up until the approach of the finals on April 8, 2017 when only three (3) pairs will be left to vie for the #1 spots.
The journey won’t be easy. But the rewards will be extremely rewarding.
