Our girl Georgina Wilson made the big announcement earlier today, after posting a promotional photo for Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 3. George wrote, "I've been SO excited about this announcement and been keeping it for months now! Extremely honored to be hosting ASIA'S NEXT TOP MODEL!!!!!!!!!! Career milestone!!!!"
This will be the third season of Asia's Next Top Model, with Cycle 1 and 2 hosted by Nadya Hutagalung. Joey Mead King will still be on board as a model mentor for season 3, as confirmed by an official post on her Facebook page: "Am to be back on S3 as Model Mentor, I opted not to host for I love my role as Mentor too much. Excited to see the new girls that will rock AsNTM3! Batch 3 is looking great!"
Joey posted on her Instagram account that Australian fashion designer Alex Perry will also be joining the show as Creative Director.
Cosmopolitan Philippines has featured a number of Asia's Next Top Model alumna, including Stephanie Retuya, who was one of Cosmo's Fun Fearless Females for 2013. Stephanie and Kate Ma from Taiwan were runners-up to winner Jessica Amornkuldilok from Thailand.

Aside from Stephanie, two of Cosmo's 8 Sexiest Models for 2014, Katarina Rodriguez and Jodilly Pendre, were part of Cycle 2's final three contenders (Philippines represent!), with Sheena Liam from Malaysia ultimately bagging the title.
Congrats on the fabulous new gig, George!
