Miss Universe China 2011 Luo Zilin can now be seen on Oxygen’s The Face.

Don’t look now, but Miss Universe China 2011 and Miss Universe 2011 4th Runner-Up Luo Zilin has grabbed the opportunity to extend her international modeling career to yet another avenue, however riskier the move could be. She is all set to appear as one of the twelve finalists who will fight to win an exclusive global modeling contract with Ulta Beauty plus the title of “The Face
” on US cable’s Oxygen Channel.
I actually heard about the show when Nigel Barker served as one of the judges in Miss Universe 2012. And the other day, the first episode – titled ‘The Fight to Make Top 12’ – was made available for free on iTunes. I downloaded right away and watched the same with much gusto. Imagine my pleasant surprise to see Luo Zilin as one of the 24 short-listed ladies judged by Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha. And imagine my even more pleasant surprise when I saw all three supermodel-coaches wanting (so bad) to get the Chinese stunner on their respective teams. In the end, she opted to join Team Naomi as expected.

Let’s see how far Zilin will go on ‘The Face’
This early, Zilin is already being pegged as a top favorite to make it all the way to Top 3 in the show. And her coach Naomi is very confident that she will be a real force to reckon with. Let’s see in the succeeding episodes so she can make up for her disappointing fifth-place Miss Universe finish (behind our own Shamcey Supsup).
I’m not sure yet which channel will carry ‘The Face‘ in the Philippines, but my best bets would be TLC, Star World or 2nd Avenue. It will premiere in the U.S. on February 12, but if you’re an eager beaver and want to watch the first episode right away, then head over to iTunes and click the link under the TV Shows section. 😉
Miss Universe China 2011 Luo Zilin
China is prepping itself for Miss Universe 2011 in a big way. Here comes tall and elegant Luo Zilin (going by the western name of Roseline) who will wear the sash of the most populous country in the world in Sao Paulo. The professional model from Zhejiang – who stands at 1.82m or virtually 6 feet – was selected Miss Universe China 2011 at Beijing’s Mastercard Arena last night. She literally stood tall while being crowned in the presence of 2007 Miss Universe Riyo Mori and Miss Universe Glam photographer Fadil Berisha. Her court of beauties include 1st Runner-Up Li Han Zi, 2nd Runner-Up Zhang Ya Mei and 3rd Runner-Up Yi Na. The national pageant, which is now being handled by internationally-renowned entrepreneur Yue-Sai Kan, has gotten a big lift this year and is going the route that Japan and Korea took years back.
Luo Zilin has legs that extend forever!
The question is…will Luo Zilin be successful? The Chinese are always pumped to go for all the superlatives, like in the Olympics where they want to establish the fastest swims, the longest jumps, the swiftest leaps and the heaviest lifts. Will they now get tagged as having the prettiest woman in the universe?
This much I can say. Miss Universe 2011 is going to be the toughest beauty competition in years. And the Asia-Pacific region alone is fielding some of the most outstanding beauties it has produced in a long time. Luck will play a major role for sure. 😉
