Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 5 Review + Amiciness Picks

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.


Deliberation

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)

FCO: Cindy

Bottom 2: Dorothy & Veronika

Eliminated: Dorothy NO ONE. It’s a non-elimination. Oops what, it’s Nametha

Call Out Order 👇

  1. Cindy
  2. Nametha
  3. Maureen
  4. Shikin
  5. Valerie
  6. Clara
  7. Tu
  8. Veronika
  9. Dorothy

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. 🙁 🙁 🙁

  1. next week one of the twins will be eliminated… then Dorothy ..uh ohh
    ep 7 : shikin got FCO , Maureen will be on bottom 2.
    ep 8 : Valerie got FCO, Cindy & Dorothy will be on bottom 2.. then Dorothy eliminated.

    1. The girls have signed a contract of which content cannot be breached. Using wi-fi is definitely one of the major rules that shall not be broken without punishment take place as its consequence. Spying is apparently not one of the rules in the contract. As Dorothy said “Sorry for not sorry” LOL

  2. Oh crap i actually didnt expect that! With that amount of confessionals, i presumed she at least will make it to the top 5

    1. Nametha- (*Septa Unella breaks wall* SHAME) ugh maybe a time penalty in the next photoshoot would be fair punishment. Shes totally holding back her emotions 😢

    2. Shikin
    3. Cindy- she looks great but also a bit scared. (i like that theyre helping her do better at photoshoots but i hope they do the same for the other girls, it just seems unjust..)
    4. Tu
    5. Valerie
    6. Maureen- i don’t know what went wrong.. But she does look a bit older here. Maybe its the dress or makeup?

    7. Clara- okay she’s extra annoying but she’s also funny esp. when shes whining lol

    8. Veronika- she just looks dead here

    9. Dorothy- theyre totally sabotaging her. There ARE better frames than this. Looking at this photo makes me uncomfortable, HIDE YO KEEDZ

    1. I’m seriously impressed by Nametha’s versatility. She can be badass in one photo, and she can look vulnerable in another.

      I mentioned in my Episode 3 review that it seems Yu Tsai has a… um… preference for Cindy. We seem to be in agreement about that 😀

      1. In actuality, i wouldve never expected a soft photo from Nametha, so this truly astonished me

        I reread your ep3 review and did a lil research.. seems like yu tsai has been constantly giving dorothy 6.5 too 😰

        1. Ooh thanks for pointing that out. I’ll probably have to look into the judges’ scores as evidence of this “preference” in a future episode review. 🙂
