The official synopsis of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 6, from the official website:
The models are tasked with an eye-opening social media challenge and a photo shoot that leaves them soaking wet, but the real tension surfaces when a heated confrontation reveals someone’s dirty little secret…reminding everybody to expect the unexpected.
In a dramatic elimination, one of the contestants learns a hard lesson on integrity which reminds everybody to expect the unexpected. Special appearances by celebrity model, Fiona Fussi and Cycle 3 finalist, Aimee Cheng-Bradshaw.
Last time I asked you who among the Top 10 should have been eliminated, and here are your results:
This week’s social media challenge is brought to you by Acuvue contact lens. The winner will get a year’s supply of contact lenses. “My eyes define what is uniquely me.”
Challenge: Social Media Challenge
The girls need to snap 3 Polaroids of their unique eye look. The girls are grouped into teams.
- Shikin, Dorothy, Nametha
- Maureen, Tu
- Cindy, Veronika
- Clara, Valerie
Shikin is unimpressed by her teammates’ photo skills. “We’re not photographers, we’re models!” 😂
Maureen says she’s used to photography but is having a hard time using the Polaroid to take Tu’s photos. When it was Tu’s turn to take Maureen’s photos, they were so much better. Tu makes a deal that if Maureen wins she gets the prize share. 😂
Cindy likewise is having a hard time using the camera. In one shot Veronika isn’t even in the frame.
Clara blames the Polaroid for Valerie’s bad photos. And she also blames Valerie’s face 😂 The twins are clearly used to taking Polaroid photos! The frustration is real! 😂
Challenge Winner: Dorothy
Really creative and embodied her assigned personality. She felt that the Good Girls didn’t agree with her win. Tu & Valerie are at the bottom with 7.5. “You’re giving judgments but now you’re saying you’re not the judge” NAMETHA SLAY! The Good Girls confront her about the way she treats the other girls. “I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings, sweetheart.” THE SASS! I’m living for this! 😂
Photo shoot: Neutrogena Rain Bath Shower Gels
Cindy, Yu Tsai and Cycle 3 finalist Aimee meet the girls in a studio. The girls will take photos while submerged in a bathtub full of water. Aimee is the face of Neutrogena.
The winner will become the face of Neutrogena in a nationwide campaign. Joel Lim is the photographer for this shoot.
Maureen wants to show a different side of her and Cindy thinks she succeeded. Dorothy is confident that she can nail this commercial shoot, but Yu Tsai warns her not to be too commercial. Shikin is not too confident about her commercial skills though.
Cindy asked Clara if she knew what they were going to do in the shoot. Clara answers, “Swimming!” No, honey, you’re just taking a bath. You can’t really swim inside a bathtub. 😂 The other Cindy is having a hard time following the photographer’s and the judges’ directions. Yu Tsai literally had to approach the tub and keep her head in place. He’s getting more frustrated. Uh oh.
Tu had a hard time at first because she was scared to go unde the water. She was wearing her contact lens, but when she took those out she posed much better. Veronika wasn’t listening to Yu Tsai’s instructions.
The line differentiating the Good Girs and Bad Girls is blurring. The twins confront Nametha about her breaking the rules. She used wi-fi which is not allowed on the show. The twins found this out through Clara, but she also forewarned Nametha about the twins confronting her. “What the hell, Clara?! Which side are you on?” says one of the twins. Veronika and Valerie want her to be punished.
Maureen: trust your instincts and become the top model you can be. Yu Tsai now believes that she has the material to become one.
Dorothy: judges were disappointed because they thought this shoot was made dor her
Shikin: Yu Tsai isn’t impressed.
Tu: her photos were way too sexy, and Tu agrees. But the judges want her to learn restraint and different levels of sexy.
Cindy: Yu Tsai likes the photo (of course) but the judges note how hard it was to get that photo
Clara: doesn’t have the peaceful vibe. The judges wanted more from her
Veronika: Yu Tsai brings up the problem in her photo shoot. She needs to listen to the mentors because they’re here to help.
Valerie: Not typical Neutrogena image but she looks expenive. Oh this was the last shot. She got lucky
Nametha: Stunning, the future of fashion industry, but…
Now they’re bringing up the wi-fi issue. Nametha says she understands the rules and that she only sent one message. It’s a breach of contract Cindy says. She asks Dorothy about her opinion. “This is a competition. She needs to get eliminated.” Ouch! Nametha v the whole of AsNTM. The panel will take this into consideration when scoring. Everyone turned against her except for Shikin (I think)
Bottom 2: Dorothy & Veronika
Dorothy NO ONE. It’s a non-elimination. Oops what, it’s Nametha
Call Out Order 👇
Nametha is called back up on stage. Cindy says that they have decided to eliminate Nametha for breaching the rules. “Let this be a lesson…” Rules are rules. 🙁 🙁 🙁
