The Top 10 Finalists of YTM’s Next Top Model

Dear fans and followers,

7 na ang natanggal…

10 na lang ang natira…

Sa labanan ng STOLEN SHOT, sino kaya ang bibida?

Welcome sa Yours truly, Madma’s Next Top Model!!! Ito ang kauna-unahan at nakakalokang modelling search sa blogging world hatid sa atin ng Adbokasya at Dolled up by J.C. Cantos. Live na live ang posting ko from Bohol! Shout ouch naman sa akin. Pumunta pa talaga ako sa tinatawag na “bayan” para makapag-internet at makapag-post. Pasensya na kung medyo late. PERO, taas pa rin ng ratings ha! KAKALOKA! Salamat sa paghihintay sa ating episode for today.

10 models na lang ang natitira na maglalaban-laban para sa titulong Ultimate Grand Winner ng YTMNTM. Last Wednesday, nagpaalam na tayo kina Jill, Kti and Kayle. Sila ang ikalawang batch ng mga natanggal sa YTMNTM.

Panibagong challenge na naman ang kakaharapin ng ating Top 10 finalists today. Susubukan natin ang kanilang galing sa pagmo-model with their best stolen shot photo. Alam naman natin, ang tunay na kagandahan ay higit na nakikita sa mga times na hindi ka ready humarap sa camera. Exciting talaga today kasi makikita natin ang mga finalists sa kanilang unguarded moments!

Tatlo ulit ang magiging hurado para sa round na ito. Ito ay sina Mr. Rogelio Estacio Jr., ang General Manager ng Adbokasya, Ms. J.C. Cantos ng Dolled up by J.C. Cantos at ang ating celebrity judge for this week na si Direk Nick Olanka. Shout ouch naman sa ating bonggang celebrity judge! Pasabog din ang stolen shot n’ya ha.

Si Direk Nick Olanka ay isang premyadong TV and film director ng ABS-CBN at ng Star Cinema. Siya ang isa sa mga directors ng sikat na sikat na teleseryeng “E-boy” at ang aking personal favorite show na “Magkaribal.”Aaay, super favorite ko ang “Magkaribal”  nila Bea Alonzo at Gretchen Barreto! Ulol na ulol ako sa show na ito! Grabe!!!

Kilala din siya sa kanyang husay sa paghawak ng mga batikang artista sa show na “Maalaala Mo Kaya.” Ilan sa mga pasabog MMK episodes na kanyang naidirehe ay “Bimpo” na pinagbidahan ni Kim Chiu, “Baunan” na pinagbidahan ni Irma Adlwan at EJ Falcon, “Basura” nila Matt Evans at Melissa Ricks, “Toy Car” nina Melai Cantiveros, Ketchup Eusebio and Ryan Eigenmann at marami pang iba. Siya din ang nag-direct ng MMK episode ni the late-Tyron Perez na “Ice Cream II.”

At kung napanood n’yo ang horror film na “Cinco,” siya ang nag-direct ng episode ni Mariel Rodriguez na “Mukha.” AND by the way, naging extra din talaga si Madma sa pelikulang ito kasama ang ilan pang alumni ng The UP Repertory Company.

O, ‘di ba! Nakakaloka ang Celebrity Judge natin this week! Umamin kayo!🙂

MAJOR TWIST

Simula ngayong araw na ito, ang ratio of judging ay mababago na! O, ha!🙂 The ratio of judging is divided into: Panel Judges (50%) and Fan Votes (50%). Aminin n’yo ‘tong MAJOR TWIST na ito!!! This competition is getting stiffer dahil pantay na ang powers ng mga fans at ng ating mga prestigious judges. Ito na ang panahon para iangat natin ang antas ng labanan ng mga models. Dito natin higit na masasala ang karapat-dapat na tanghaling first Ultimate Grand Winner ng YTMNTM. Malaking challenge ito sa mga models kasi hindi na lang sila dapat sikat, dapat din ay quality ang mga entries na ipapasa nila. This is a perfect balance between fame and quality.🙂 I’m sure, titindi ang labanan natin ngayong pumasok na tayo sa Top 10 with this new twist.🙂

Lahat ng fans ay pwedeng bumoto ISANG BESES kada araw! Tuluy-tuloy lang ang suporta sa favorite finalist n’yo everyday.

“Hello, I’m Vanessa. I have always dreamed of an empowered state, unencumbered by the unnecessary evils of delays, red tapes, biases, political clout, and many more. I have longed for a progressive nation where everybody’s welfare, safety, security, and access to health & education is prioritized over dogma and stigma. I am for a secular Philippines, where correct, factual information is the basis for the nation’s and population’s development, where there is neutrality regardless of matters of faith and belief, where the laws and governments rule instead of families and dynasties and men in capes, and where barriers between classes and castes will be broken down – all for the realization of excellence across all individuals involved.

Through a secular nation, we could all share equal opportunity for human rights. Regardless of your gender, gender preference, or choice of gender, you shall benefit from an open-minded society, willing to accept you and provide you with all you need, with arms wide-open. Through a progressive Philippines, Sexual / Reproductive Health will be a discussion point, not a hushed taboo – discrimination against those who have had unplanned pregnancies, those who suffer STDs, and those who may have been unwillingly abused will not exist. They will be treated with care, with the same, consistent care given to those who had normal, wanted pregnancies and those who suffer other diseases. They will have access to the care they deserve. Aside from this, one could be free to express one’s self through any media. We would live in an open-source world. Information and opportunity will be free, for all.

There will be no hierarchy who would prevent progression and development just because it is against their personal interpretations. There will be no red tapes on the passing and approval of bills and laws which promote better living conditions. Science and Technology will be taught to, and experienced by all. There will be no omission of practical knowledge, instead, there will be a huge increase in the flow of intelligence.

I have dreamed of an empowered state, and as a Filipino Freethinker, as a Reproductive Health Advocate, as a woman, and as a responsible citizen, I am sharing my dream with you. And hopefully, together, we could take action!

Promote equality. Promote innovation. Enjoy your rights! Promote a secular Philippines.

We may have not started the fire, but, as long as we have the passion, and the will and initiative to put real action, our efforts will not be all in vain. ” –Nessa, 24, Paranaque

“About me?  To be honest with you guys, I am a typical gay person but I chose to be decent dahil yun ang gusto ko at tingin kong tama and of course  lalong lalo na siempre pa dapat lang dahil Teacher ako hehe! I am so cool, parang barkada ko lang yung mga studyante ko, I’m very productive person, every time I do some task or deeds, i  will make a plan first before I go for it. I’m the type of person that tells frankly. I love and I protect my friends! Kayang kaya ko maging single for the looongest time basta anjan lang yung mga kaibigan ko na halos tinuturing ko ng kapatid. I’m very fond in listening to music, Siguro kasi pangarap kong maging singer pero hanggang pangarap na lang ata yun haha! I love karaoke! Lalong lalo na kapag kasama ang mga friends at power sing-galore ever at tamang chill at inuman lang basta dapat masaya lagi. Happy-happy lang. Naalala ko din pala since elementary hanggang college, lagi akong representative ng school namin sa mga poster making/painting contest and editorial cartooning,wala lang na-share lang hehe! I just simply love arts yun na! I’m a very happy,outgoing and friendly type of  person as well. Super love ko ang mga comedy bars at kung anik anik pang source ng happiness! kaya naman, I love YTM kasi yung mga seryosong problema/topics  eh ang easy at very-very light lang i-discuss here! iba! I couldn’t explain it but basta iba! kaka-iba! Exceptional! It’s just really out of this world! hehe, Saka sort of fun and entertainment  na din kumbaga and most of all laging may maiiwang ngiti sa mga wagas at havs na havz na mga advise ni Madma!❤

And finally for my advocacy, Sabi nga ni Rizal at ni Whitney Houston “Ang kabataan ang  pag-asa ng bayan” At “I believe the children are our future teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside..♪♫ ♪” Aansave? Waaah, Ayan tuloy parang gusto ko na kantahin toh  wahaha charaught! Seriously speaking, I would like to be able to help the street children in our community. The most basic need is to provide them with food, shelter and clothing. I wanted to also help them in their education if possible. In this way, the children would be guided in the right path for their future. Btw, my apology, if this one is pretty long. Thank you for the time you spent reading guys. Have a great wapak day ahead! God bless!”Allen, 22, Valenzuela

“I am Coco, 24. I am a journalist by degree, a print journalist to be specific. I’ve written for newspaper and magazines to express, inform and entertain at some point in my life. Being read and appreciated by people who need these information is the most fulfilling reward of being a writer. Long ago, print media was the source of information for mass people right before internet, radio and television were born, hence the pioneer amongst. Today, we are surrounded by so many information source mentioned above that people find more interactive and highly accessible which tagged the extinction of print journalism in the coming.

Having experienced how difficult it was to write for newspaper, it pains me that most people are seeing newspapers and magazines mainly as wrapper of commodities rather than a medium of communication. (Well I’m not really against using it as wrappers).

I therefore support and advocate the effort of those writers behind daily broadsheets and newspapers circulating around the nation whom not more than 15% of the total distribution is being read according to TNS Digital Life as of 2012. Newspaper is not dying and still believe it is the most reliable and flexible source of information, a medium that has a “power” of its own and doesn’t literally require “power” or electricity to power on the lives of mass people.” Coco, 24, Quezon City

Random facts: Hindi ako kumakain ng apples, mayroon akong quest for the best lugaw, at may phobia ako sa mga ibon. I am currently working at an IT company, completing my masters degree, and doing cool sorts of side jobs. By profession, isa akong environmental planner. Sa pangarap, isa akong biriterang videoke singer. 
 
As an environmental planner, my personal advocacy is to mainstream gender in local/environment plans. Naniniwala ako na magkakaiba ang mga pangangailangan ng mga kababaihan at kalalakihan… Paano kung sa evacuation center ay walang pasador? Paano kung malayo ang poso/palengke/birthing clinics sa mga maybahay na nakatira sa mga barrio? Pyudal pa rin ang ating lipunan, kaya madalas ay maliit ang naibibigay ng atensyon sa mga pangangailangan ng mga kababaihan. So if local/environmental plans empower and acknowledge the role of women, we lessen the inequality, we reduce poverty, and we build stronger capacities for environmental stewardship. Kunek-kunek, kumbaga. This advocacy needs action and planning, and I hope to influence good changes for the country, one plan at a time.🙂
 
I, thank you. *waves*”Jetti, 28, Quezon City
