The newest season of Asia's Next Top Model will premiere today, August 22, on FOX Life. Cycle 6 will be held in Bangkok, Thailand with contestants from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Taiwan, Vietnam, Singapore, and The Philippines. Good news! Model Cindy Bishop returns as the show's host and photographer and fashion creative director Yu Tsai is also back to mentor all 14 models.
Fil-German Maureen Wroblewitz' memorable win from Cycle 5 earned her the distinction of being the first Pinay to win the title. This year, two more Filipinas are vying for the top spot: Jachin Manere and Adela Mae Marshall.
21-year old Jachin or Jach is described as a carefree tomboy who loves music and sci-fi movies. She loves John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Domenico Dolce, and Stefano Gabbana.
20-year old Adela, who previously joined Philippines’ Next Top Model, cites Alessandro Michele and Demna Gvasalia as her favorite designers. She moved from England to the Philippines in 2016 and has also been pursuing a music career.
Excited? So are we! Here's a clip of the contestants screaming as loud as they possibly can:
