Philippines Next Top Model: Topless…Almost

19 05 2007

This photoshoot is supposed to be done in nude, but since we live in a “burn in hell if you go nude” or “go naked and the show will be suspended” society, we have to contend with a topless swimsuit photo challenge. Only that the “top” is then replaced with whatever-the-stylists-fancy.

Since the show is done taping this cycle (we already have a winner, we just don’t know who she is yet…or do we?), I can’t suggest to this show’s production team to come up with more challenging, more creative, and–should I say–better shoots.

Enough rant. Here’s my BANGIS AWARD:

ELF

Nice shot, but I’m not really that awed with her self-strangulation pose.

And here is my my BANGAS AWARD:

RINA

This shot says “My head hurts” instead of “I’m beautiful, worship my thunder thighs.” Wait, what happened to her thunder thighs?

ELIMINATED: No one. This is even cornier than their double elimination on the first episode.

Now the big question remains: Will they be going to Hong Kong or in Boracay for the Finale?

For some reason, I like the 1st pic more, even if its kinda run of the mill… panira nga kasi ung self-strangulation thing.

And gad. I thought the 2nd pic was ugly. Then I saw the Bangas awardee. Even a horny manatee could model better then that! >_

Are those convicts will burn us if we go topless? Hmm..

I think Elf is gorgous but can they come up with more buzzing photoshoot. They seem copying exact format from ANTM.
Is it suppose to be like that?

Have a wonderful weekend!

I loved the first and third pic posts here…

I think they should do their finale in Boracay…the better to show off our country’s pride in its pristine white sand beaches

@ Fendi: yes..it is supposed to be like that because they ae franchising the show..
parang binili nila yun..so lahat2 nang pinaggagawa nila the same sa antm mas maganda nga lang yung sa antm…

ACTUAL thoughts during the shoot:

Grendel : sana walang makarinig saking utot…1…2…3…pffrtt

Jen: Wala bang jeep dito???

Elf: Kapag hindi ako nanalo…puputulin ko ulo ko….

Rina: Ang baho dito…sumakit ang ulo ko tuloy…..

The picture quality isnt really that great and indeed run of the mill kind. But the models look great and yes I agree that they should have done some more creative poses.

I can’t understand all these pictures since dapat nag-model sila. Nag-model ng ano?

Sorry, but that’s how I feel about it and I don’t understand Ruffa and Wilma and the two guys during the telecast praising all of these. And who wants to wear these items without clothes on?

Ah basta. I’ve made up my mind. Elf for the win. She has the best body, the best poses, the best look.

these are funny poses. even elf’s, which is the best one, looks ridiculous also. it is only saved by her fierce and powerful facial expression. the rest are just weak and boring.

I think the laws should be changed to modern standards. We do not live in the dark ages anymore and the conservative people are all very old and will soon die off. The laws should be changed to at least acceptable western standards. We are already in the internet age and man has already gone to the moon and has built a space station in outer space. Do we still have to adhere to colonial mentality? I think they should at least allow topless sunbathing on all beaches. Of course, no sex is allowed in public and no forms of sexual deviation such as masturbation, ejaculation, and all forms of sodomy should be illegal and banned. However, topless sunbathing is so common and there is not harm seen in it. It is only the malicious mind that makes it look bad. Otherwise it’s not even something to raise their eyebrows to.
