AsNTM6 Is Back on FOXLife

Model-host Dominic Lau joins Cara, Cindy and Yu Tsai on the panel for Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 8

Asia’s Next Top Model is back for its sixth cycle. But it’s gonna be premiering anytime this March like we’ve been used to. The official Facebook page and Twitter of AsNTM posted the call for auditions just this week. Obviously shooting hasn’t begun and estimating the timeline, AsNTM Cycle 6 will most probably premiere sometime between September and October. I’m bad at estimations though. 😅

For all aspiring AsNTM6 models in the Philippines and the whole of Asia, now’s your chance to audition and be on top. Be the next Jessica, Sheena, Gani, Tawan and Maureen. Who will be the next Asia’s. Next. Top. Model?

BTW, I just found out that Star World has been rebranded to FOXLife. (Sorry, been busy at work! 😂) I was a Star World baby. I always used to watch Dharma and Greg, Suddenly Susan and Malcolm in the Middle among others on Star World after school. I’m kinda nostalgic right now. 😢

Anyway, I’m still excited for AsNTM6. I do hope that this season will be even better than its predecessors. Less drama and more modeling, pretty please. 🙏  I am also hoping that more countries will be represented this year. How about Cambodia? Myanmar? Mongolia? (Tugs was so robbed!) And fans, please be more constructive. Play nice, will ya? Don’t be blind followers and know when a picture is bad or good. Let’s respect each other’s opinions and PLEASE NO 👏 MORE 👏 SPOILERS! 👏


Are you as excited as I am? What are your expectations for AsNTM6? Where do you think the model house will be? Will it be in Singapore again or will it be in a country the show hasn’t been to yet? Sound off below in the comments section. Really, I wanna know.

Fight for My Way

I just started watching Fight for My Way on iFlix and I instantly fell in love with the show. I’ve heard this K-drama before from my friends who are addicted to all things Korean pero hindi ako nakinig at di ko pa rin pinanuod. 🙁 Hi friends, I know you’re proud of me.

The 66th Miss Universe just wrapped up and many have already posted their “‘wag muna magpaparlor statuses” because Miss Philippines Rachel Peters didn’t make the top 5. Geez, gay people have other professions too, you know. Anyway, like last year and the year before that, Amiciness transcribed all the Q and A from the most awaited pageant in the universe as accurately as possible. I thank you.
