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.

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. 😉
