PHILIPPINE’S NEXT TOP MODEL
Episode 10 Update

May 15, 2007

In this episode, Top Model Joey Mead visited the four remaining finalists — Rina, Elf, Grendel and Jen — at the PNTM house to give them workshop on casting, and to share with them some advice on how to prepare for a go see.

After the workshop, the girls were brought to the House of Laurel for their challenge: a mock up go see with one of the acclaimed fashion designers in the country, Rajo Laurel. There the four had to outshine each other by showing off their top model attitude in a high fashion glamour gown. Right after the walk-off, the girls were interviewed by Rajo and gave them their hits and misses on their go see performance.

On this challenge, it was thrice as nice for Grendel who stood out yet again, making her the only finalist to win a challenge three times in a row. As a reward, Rajo Laurel gave her a gift certificate courtesy of House of Laurel.

The following day, Ruffa texted the girls to gear up for their 10th location photo shoot. They were treated to a Brazilian wax at Laybare Salon before heading for Batangas. In Laiya Beach Resort, they posted for an exotic swimwear photo shoot that followed the concept Jewel at the Sea.

My ReViews:




Elvira Stehr

Elvira got a positive remark from Wilma Doesnt, Robby Carmona, Xander Angeles, Vince Uy, and Ruffa Gutierrez at the Celebrity Sports Plaza for their performance evaluation and elimination round. I say this Cebuana is the most exotic and has a highest fashioned look among the top 4 (Hehehe! Bias kay taga-Cebu sad kow!) . Anyway, the picture says it all…. The picture looks good and she posed a deconstructed figure by which showcases her long, slender and good bone structure… She made a good performance in coming up with a pose that is more likely uncommon.. I think this picture is good enough for magazine covers.

Grendel Alvarado

Compared to Elvira this picture looks boring. Grendel’s pose shouldve been good if exerted more energy, her face looks exhausted and stressed out, which was so obvious. Her right hand is too relaxed and looks so bony.. Sana nilagay nlng nya yung kamay sa hips para ma-emphasize yung curves and body structure nya..

Jenilyn Olivar

I dont know what this picture is trying to emphasize… All I can see is a girl roaming around the beach selling “Bagoong” or “Special salted Hipon”… Kulang nalng lagyan yung kamay nya ng isang garapon and shoooooo!!! .. the Bagoong Gurl in Bikini!!

Rina Lorilla


OMG!… This is one horrible picture.. I dont understand why in the world did she ever come up with this very awkward pose… She looks like a boy having a headache after a drowning herself in the water or kinda like somebody having a tragic accident and has amnesia, finding herself lost in the world… Her pose is too dramatic and overly done… It doesnt showcase her body, swimsuit, or even her face as well… That’s it

— After the session, the four finalists faced the panel of judges: Wilma Doesnt, Robby Carmona, Xander Angeles, Vince Uy, and Ruffa Gutierrez at the Celebrity Sports Plaza for their performance evaluation and elimination round. During the performance evaluation only Elvina got a positive remark from the judges, while Rina and Grendel found themselves at the bottom two. Fortunately, for the first time none of them got the boot. I Say — Geez!!
