After registering a near-win in Oxygen’s The Face, Chinese model (and Miss Universe 2011 4th Runner-Up) Luo Zilin appears to be headed to a rising career in New York City. But all of that is crumbling to pieces at this point. Aside from getting bad feedbacks about her attitude and work ethics, she hammered another nail to her already questionable personality when she was seen spending time with (of all men) the ex-husband of her mentor Naomi Campbell in Ibiza.

I can’t say “poor Zilin” because everything is her own doing, be it in front of or behind the camera. If she had practiced more indiscretion, then an international modeling career would’ve still been on the right track. With this, she has nowhere to go but down and out. 😦
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. 😉
