Introducing the Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 Contestants

The Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 contestants have already been revealed! When? Well, it depends. The official Facebook page revealed the 14 models in a live Facebook stream just this week. But weeks even months before, a list of rumored contestants had already circulated. At least now it’s official. Here are the 14 models vying for the title of becoming Asia’s. 👏 Next. 👏 Top. 👏 Model. 👏

I’m happy to note that we have more countries represented than last cycle. 🙌 They’re living up to their #BeyondLimits slogan this cycle. Although I don’t know how long they can keep that up. Remember #ExpectTheUnexpected? 😂

Now let’s meet this cycle’s 14 girls in no particular order. 😏 If you aren’t too keen on reading long articles, I’ve prepared a video for you with all 14 girls after the cut…

Most Popular AsNTM Episodes Based on Amiciness Numbers

I was looking at Amiciness’s stats over the years because I was looking for a trend for my next Six Sigma project. Joke. No, I just felt like I needed to pivot our data in Microsoft Excel, and maybe, AsNTM producers may find this useful. You’re welcome.

Quick background, the blog was officially a “.com” in 2015 but we started blogging way back in 2013, when Asia’s Next Top Model started. Although we have a small following on other areas, majority of our readers and viewers are AsNTM fans. Most of our popular posts are AsNTM-related, even on Youtube. I guess it’s safe to say that we can correlate Amiciness views with how well netizens have received each AsNTM cycle. Data on cycles 1 and 2 are not as reliable; we weren’t on WordPress yet at that time.

Ladies and gents, here are some notable observations based on Amiciness numbers gathered from January 2015 to May 2018.

AsNTM6 Is Back on FOXLife

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.
