After the third elimination in episode 3, it finally settled in that every week, one model will be sent home and only one will become Asia’s Next Top Model. With this in mind, the competition gets tough and the girls realised they need to up their game to be on top.
For the first challenge in episode 4, the contestants were greeted by Georgina Wilson and Senior Artist from M.A.C. Cosmetics Singapore, Beno Lim, at the M.A.C. studio. For this challenge, the girls had 15 minutes to re-create one of six make-up looks hot this season on their partners – the “no-makeup” look is dubbed the most difficult to achieve.
Joey Mead King crashed the Model House and surprised the girls at the house to check-up on how they are doing and to give expert advice. Monika broke down as she realized her weaknesses as a model. Model mentor tip: to be a top model you must be loud and show all of your personality.
For the second challenge of this episode, the girls got intimate with a handsome male model in a steamy Shanghai themed photoshoot. Many of the girls let their lust and emotions get in the way, compromising the fashion aspect of the shoot.
In this episode, the judges realised that a line needs to be drawn between the contestants who are just girls from the models in Cycle 3. This week’s deliberation brought a harsh twist in the series with a double elimination being announced – shocking contestants and bringing them all to tears.
“It’s that part of the competition where we really need to separate the girls and the models. We have to shake things up this week.” – Georgina mentioned during the deliberation.
Episode 5 will be Ready for your Closeup! – Being fierce isn’t everything – there are moments where you will need to show different faces, even if you aren’t feeling the mood you must portray.
