Ford Modelsí Supermodel of the World Malaysia
By Jolene Foo
Behind the glitz and glamour in the modelling world that us common people envy so is a side of modelling we weren’t commonly exposed to. Until the recent boom in reality TV, that is. We now know how difficult it is to be America’s Next Top Model, or to work in the Janice Dickinson’s Modeling Agency.
Now Malaysia’s jumping onto the bright and highly exciting bandwagon and bringing one of the most revered modeling competitions to bright-eyed Malaysians through a reality TV show – Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World Malaysia, which begins Nov 16. Even more interestingly, they’re abandoning traditional TV and instead opting to stream the show online so that you can watch it over and over and… yes, over again. Once all the drama and suspense is at its peak, the show will move onto the big(ger) screen on Starworld (Astro Channel 711) for a 2-hour long grand finale.
Look out for a star-studded panel of judges including Malaysia’s fashion-world darling Amber Chia, fashion guru Gillian Hung and professional fashion photographer Azrul Kevin Abdullah. The show will be hosted by the quick-witted and charming Daphne Iking.
Prizes for the top three female and male contestants combine to a total of RM250,000. The top female also gets to represent Malaysia in the global Ford Supermodel of the World competition which will be held in Brazil in January 2010.
