This year’s roster of finalists for SupermodelME, The Original Asian Supermodel Series. includes 2 feisty Filipinas Irish Ong, 20, and Jasmine Ng, 21 along with the other 10 aspiring models of Asian heritage who are competing in a once in a life time chance to advance their career in the fashion industry. And last November 13, 2014, Ong, Ng and their fellow finalists, Brazilian-Japanese twins Rafaella and Gabriela Leonardo, made an appearance in BGC’s Cav Wine Shop and Café.
During the event, the gorgeous finalists answered questions that were asked by some members of the press. Most of the questions were about the experience they had during the duration of the season. The four sirens also shared some tips like – “Be Yourself”, “Know how to market yourself well”, and “Be a smart model” to all the young ladies who are aspiring to be part of the fashion industry.
Aside from that, guests and media partners were also lucky to have watched a sneak peak of the upcoming new season of SupermodelMe Sirens. And with its return, it assures its viewers that it’s by far the most daring, most explosive and most revealing season yet! The latest seasons promises to break new ground as the search for the ultimate siren is set against an exotic background of a brand new location: Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Among the grueling, fashion-forward challenges faced by the finalists were crazy casting calls, photo shoots featuring exotic birds, catfights on moving vehicles, and many more.
SupermodelMe is not just another reality series. Per Christine Fellowes, Managing Director at Universal Networks International – Supermodel Me is “unlike other modeling competition-based reality series in the market, SupermodelMe represents another example of DIVA’s commitment to not only entertain but empower its core female viewers. The women featured in the series prove that real beauty lies beyond a pretty face, boasting a wide range of accomplishments that encompass knowledge, strength and charisma”.
And the finalists will prove that the common stereotype about models not being smart is completely wrong. So make sure to save the date – November 24 on DIVA Universal (CH 37 on Sky Cable, CH 32 on Cablelink, CH 65 on Cignal and CH 37 for Destiny Cable) for its new season premier!
