The Top 3 Finalists of YTM’s Next Top Model

Dear fans and followers,

13 na ang natanggal…

1 nag-voluntary exit…

3 na lang ang natira…

Sa VINTAGE round, sino kaya ang mangunguna?

Welcome naman ulit 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. Top 3 na tayo! NAKAKALOKA! Live na live na naman ang panibagong round ng YTMNTM! 3 models na lang ang natitira! Sila na lang ang matitibay na maglalaban-laban para sa titulong Ultimate Grand Winner ng YTMNTM.

Last Wednesday, nagpaalam na ang modelong si Coco. Nakakalungkot din talaga ang pagkawala n’ya. Isa pa naman siya sa mga malalakas na models ever since.😦 Para sa inyong kaalaman, si Coco ang pang-13th na natanggal sa YTMNTM. Maraming salamat sa pagsali, Coco.🙂 Salamat sa pinakita mong husay, galing at tapang sa bawat round every week. Super love ka namin! Alam mo ‘yan.😉 Salamat at pinagpatuloy mo ang laban hanggang sa dulo sa kabila ng mga intriga, ngasngas at negativities. SALUDO KAME SA’YO! Nawa ay ipagpatuloy mo rin ang napakagandang adbokasya mo. We wish you all the best!

Naging napaka-kontrobersyal din ng YTMNTM last night sa biglaang voluntary exit ni Flip. Nagulantang ang lahat sa pasabog na ito. Nakakaloka talaga. Lubhang ikinalungkot ito ng mga fans and followers ng YTMNTM lalo na ng mga supporters ni Flip. Subalit, nirerespeto ni Madma ang naging desisyon n’ya kaya naman siya ay tuluyan na ring nagpaalam sa show na ito. Muli, maraming salamat sa suporta at panahon na iyong ginugol, Flip. We love you.🙂

Moving forward, panibagong challenge na naman ang kakaharapin ng ating Top 3 finalists today. Magkakalaman na kung sino ang mangingibabaw sa VINTAGE round na ito. Super challenging nito! Nakaka-excite!

Walang elimination sa round na ito gaya nga ng sinabi ko.  Tuloy ang labanan ng Top 3 models pero walang matatangal sa kanila sa Vintage round. Ang magiging resulta ng round na ito ay magiging parte ng overall ranking nila sa Live Grand Finale. Kukuha tayo ng 20% sa result ng Vintage Shot round at isasama sa final judging sa September 8. Gusto ko na rin kayong i-guide sa magiging criteria for judging sa Final Round:

  1. Dear Jetti, kanina lang, mga 2 or 3 hours ago, napadaan ako sa Pulilan (yung intersection na may Jolibee) galing Baliuag. Its a sign. Ikaw ang karapatdapat na manalo!
    Ito na marahil ang ikalawang pinaka-paborito kong larawan mo (sunod sa “Forlorn”! This is worthy to become a spread of any fashion magazine. Editorial. I love the fact that you are selling the bag, the heels and perhaps even the dress. Kung binibenta rin yung upuan mo, pati yung kongkretong tiles, bibilhin ko din!!😀

  2. @echus, pede ko naman i-explain. kaso i dont know you. chikka na lang tayo minsan haha.

    Mahihiya? For what? Sabi ng nanay ko, wag daw ako mahiya as long as wala akong ginagawang KRIMEN. I think doing such is not a crime.

    Peace!

    xoxo,

    Paris with Love

  3. Alam na kung sino ang weakest. Both sa picture at sa ugali towards critics.
    Andami sinasabi. Andami i neexplain. Nessa ikaw ba yan? Ay hindi. Di si Nessa yan. Maayos ngumuyngoy ni Nessa, hindi PABALANG. Hindi sarcastic.
    Tongolin no yonnnnn!

  4. definitely I go for jetti of quezon city she portrays the real essence of vintage🙂 because of it’s textures,light the color and the quality of the photo. She also use the appropriate outfit and style for the concept. thanks🙂

  5. Hello, madma. Here’s a little critique for the finalists:

    Paris – I see the same styling every time, and it got me this time. We should’ve seen a a mind-blowing new you by now.

    Jetti – You always manage to take us to a new world with every photo. You have the makings of a very intelligent model.

    Jeff – It could be the wardrobe, but I also feel that this photo is from an old mold you’ve been. Your highly photogenic face and body, though, is your edge against the other competitors, a gift that not everyone has.🙂

  6. And now we’re down to three.
    Ooooooh child, a lot of drama happened lately and this is CRAY! I tell you, this is cray. I would like to commend the models who stayed and are still up in the running in the hopes of becoming Ameri– I mean, Yours Truly Madma’s Next Top Model.

    This isn’t an easy competition. It’s not a click-submit competition. The models have to brave the critiques of people you don’t actually know, whether constructive or not. And at the same time, get the hearts of people out there to vote for them. So I’m really proud of Madma’s models to come this far.

    Now, for this week, the models’ challenge for this week is to deliver photos with the theme VINTAGE enveloped with it.

    Now vintage originally denotes a year’s wine harvest from grape vineyards. But in fashion and in the world of modelling, vintage is referred to as a trend that became an icon from previous eras. There are, however, debates regarding the “age” of that era before it is considered vintage. For my purposes, anything that falls from the year 2000 and below is considered vintage. Be it retro-hipster fashion, Victorian fashion, and the likes.

    In this challenge, the criteria of judging mainly focus on the clothing of the model and the biggest factor, the post-editing. To be honest, I’m not really fond of this theme because it’s mainly focused on STYLING and POST-EDITING than modelling. But as much as possible, in my judging, I will include the modelling aspect whenever I can.

    Mama Tyra’s talking too much, let’s start judging!

    So, first up is…PARIS!
    Hi girl. Let’s see your best shot for the vintage them.
    Now Paris, when I look that this photo, it reminds me of 60s era. With those prints and headdress. The necklace did its work too. The post-editing, could have been worked out more, if you know what I mean. The soft yellow lighting helped the vintage theme pop out. Now, with regards to the face, I’m not quite sure. I don’t know if it’s the make-up or the angle the light hit your face, but your eyes were shadowed, making the facial expression more lost that what it should be. You looked as though you had a mental blackout and stared blankly and all. This is a good shot. And I’ve been seeing a lot of hate directed to you, hang in there girl.🙂

    Next stop is…JETTI!
    Come over here, child. And here’s your best shot.
    Wonderful! Wow! Just wonderful. I would like to salute your stylist, and the photo editor because at one glance BAM straight-on gurl this is vintage. The texture, the lighting, the brightness, the saturation, the contrast, the dress, the hair, the bag, the shoes, the chair, everything!!! This photo yells, “I’m vintage come look at me.” You’re one the few here (accdg. to my observation) who has more advantage than the others because you have people you can work with who are in the fashion industry already to allow you to come up with a premium quality photo. HOWEVER! Focusing on the face, and the body language, you can do better than this, girl. I’m sorry, but FOR ME, the beauty of this photo relied on the post-editing and the styling. I’m not really fond with the facial expression and the missing left hand. Your EYES LOOK DEMENTED, too much white in the eyes. BUT I love love LOVE LOOOOOVE your legs! They are too die for. This photo sells. And I believe it’s already in a magazine spread. Great job. Thank you Jetti.🙂

    And last but not the least…JEFF.
    Hello papi. Let’s see your best vintage photo.
    Angles, baby! ANGLES! YES! Styling-wise, this is vintage BUT post-editing-wise this is a little lacking. I really wish you went drastic in the post-editing like intensify the vignettes, or whatever filters you can use, to push the envelope farther in the vintage theme because it didn’t quite make it for me which is already a big minus when it comes to the theme. I love however the angles you created! I mean, child, I love how my eyes play around this photo, with the bent hand, shoulder pop, and neck position. Angle per angle, it worked. I love the shape that you formed, I love the way your write-up always connect with your photo, the big clock, the far-away look, those stern eyes, and those angles! Your feet look scary though, like they’ll creep towards me anytime. But that’s just me. If only you have the quality of Jetti’s post-editing capabilities, you could have topped this round.

    BOTTOM 2:
    Paris
    Jeff

  7. Ibang level si Ate Jetti sa round na to. Jeff, parang may something awkward na hindi ko mapinpoint. Paris, okay naman. Tamang ikaw lang yung asa gitna. Naipasa mo na ba ito dati? Ang dami kasing nagrereact.=)

  8. Ako I don’t mind kung inulit ni Paris ang photo na ito, kasi swak naman sya, retro barrio lass lang, I like the simplicity.

    Jetti’s is ok, sana tighter shot para mas may impact.

    Jeff naupstage ka nung clock, medyo napamenor ratsada mo with this.submission.

    Ang toxic nung mga galit kay Paris, agit masyado

  9. I’d like to say that JETTI looks and stands as a professional model and all her pictures are like coming from one of her previous photoshoots.
    Luckily she has great photographer/stylist/make up artist so com’on its to obvious that with all these support she’s having she would win.

    And if she won’t —hay ewan ko nalang kung di putaktihin ng nguynguyeras ang blog na ito.

    SORRY Jetti but I guess you deserve better than this!

    —Madma, isa lang sana ang hihingin ko sayo If you’ll have the next season for your online show. Please protect your candidates as much as possible—salagin mo naman yung bala against them atleast once lalo na if its a conflict on the competition’s rules. Me flaw kasi…pero you just let your audience bash your candidates like its really hurtful at some point.

    —To be honest, medyo nairita ako sa pamamaalam ni Flip at paninira ke Coco –kasi bet siyang ibalik sa competition ni Flip (im not a fan of them either) pero mukhang natapos yung trail ng comments na wala ka ng sinabi… you just let it be…😦

    Now that we’re nearing sa grand finale… Paris & Jeff galingan niyo pa boto ako sa inyo since you guys make it a point to come up with your own photography/own style/production whatsoever.

    Jetti, I wish to see you more sa mga magazines/modeling stints alam kong me ibubuga ka pa…

  10. Hindi masyadong maayos ang naging patimpalak, flawful sya. Well siguro hindi din naman nga inexpect na maghihit sya ng ganito. (wuw di makamoveon) Anyway. Goodluck sa inyong tatlo. Medyo nawalan ako ng gana sa bandang huli nung may nagpaalam galore. Anyway. Sige bahala na kayo,sino man manalo, keber na

  11. Nay Lolit! Hindi kita mareplyan sa itaas. Nakukulangan ka na ba sa mga bubuwit at wala kang masagap na tsismis? Hahaha. Peace tayo, Nay Lolit.
    Pero OO, kompirmado ng aking source.
