You would think that, just because of their previous national pageant experiences, the quartet of Vina Openiano, Racquel Kabigting, Ednornance Agustin and Leonalyn dela Cruz will find Bodyshots Philippines 2014 an easy challenge. On the contrary, joining this annual model search will prove to be double the risks and demands on their part.
For one, fellow female competitors have already placed targets on their back. One unmissable misstep and the greenhorns can easily steal the thunder from right under their noses. And while their names and faces have already become so much more familiar, the expectations on their individual performances have gone up by several notches.
Of course, some would say that a model search is an entirely different ballgame compared to beauty contests. But in the end, both are tough competitions. In the latter, a crown and the chance to represent the country abroad are the rewards to work hard for. And in Bodyshots, the chance to start a high-earning career as a fashion model en route to hopefully getting the halo from the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines should be reasons enough to excel and get the ultimate prize.
Where will these four beautiful pageant-affiliated Filipinas find themselves in by the time the winners are announced late next month? Top or bottom? 😉
