The official synopsis of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 8, from the official website:

The Top 6 are paired up for their highly-anticipated go-sees that put them under unreal pressure; and later, the girls are ‘Bound by Love’ to a male model for a powerful and seductive photo shoot by Yu Tsai.

At a tense and tearful elimination, one contestant gets a reality check that modeling is no child’s play. Special appearances by creative consultant, Daniel Boey; fashion designer, Kevin Seah; actor, Pavan Singh; singer and actress, Cheryl Wee; and host, model and TV personality, Dominic Lau.

Wow! This synopsis is pretty spoiler-y. I already have a guess as to who might be eliminated. 😂

Asia’s premiere modelling competition is back for Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 7. The girls are tackling their first fashion film (a.k.a. video shoot) showing off clothes from this week’s sponsor ZALORA. Kevin Ou, who shot last cycle’s Subaru music video, is back behind the lens. Read on for my Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 7 review and how the girls fared in their shoot this week.

They’re shooting at a beach resort in Sentosa this time. Again, better than the overused harbor backdrop or inside the studio. The final result didn’t look much like a ZALORA ad campaign, but more like something I see in a stock video footage site. Complete with the light leaks, bokeh, and vaguely-familiar indie pop-rock background music!

So who among the girls rocked their Coachella-inspired look? Here are my Amiciness picks this week…

The official synopsis of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 7, from the official website:

The aftermath of an unexpected elimination continues to shake up the models in the “Bad Girls’ Room” as they dwindle in numbers; and the contestants must fake it ‘til they make it when they are paired up with their rivals for an #OOTD social media task and their first fashion film challenge with a male co-star.

While some girls schemed against their fellow teammates in the challenges, others rose above the pettiness and worked together professionally, even selflessly. In another shocking elimination, the girls learn a heartbreaking lesson on how a team that is divided will always fall. Special appearances by global style icon, Kim Cam Jones, and fashion expert, Rayne Reed.

“A team that is divided will always fall.” Is it the Good Girls? Because another Bad Girl elimination won’t be shocking at this stage, now that they’re down to 2. Surprise me, show!
