Judge Cindy Bishop, mentor Cara G McIlroy and the Malaysian contestants of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5, Alicia Amin and Shikin Gomez, tell us why they think this is the season to watch!
If you follow us on Instagram and read our September 2016 issue, you’d know that we spoke to Cindy Bishop before the season finale of Asia’s Next Top Model’s fourth cycle. Not only did the Thai-American model/beauty queen/actress share her experience as host for the hit reality competition series, she also talked about how the modelling scene has changed so much since the rise of social media.
Last week, StarWorld held an exclusive premiere screening event just for the media and as a big fan of the show (circa Tyra Banks), boy was I excited to attend! Themed ‘Expect the Unexpected’, Episode 1 of AsNTM’s fifth cycle brought all sorts of emotions to the crowd: we gasped, we laughed (A LOT), we even held our breaths during tense moments like the elimination ceremony. But alas, the show ended before the final reveal, which meant that all my plans for Wednesday nights moving forward will have to be cancelled cos staying in and watching this season is what I’m planning to do.
