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.

Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 11 Review + Amiciness Critique

We are a few weeks away from the finale of Asia’s premiere modelling competition. But before we get to crown Asia’s Next Top Model let’s first talk about Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 11. Read on for my Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 Episode 11 review and how the girls fared in their shoot this week.

The photoshoot theme is “Tropical Ice Queen”… or something to that effect. I’m not really sure. Malaysian fashion photographer Bibo Aswan was behind the lens for the shoot, with Yu Tsai directing. So who among the girls broke the ice and who got stuck in avalanche? These are my thoughts on the photoshoot this week…
