Fun and fearless 20-year old Jodilly Ignacio Pendre and 21-year old Katarina Sonja Rodriguez are Philippines’ representative in the Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 (AsNTM S2).
A typical independent and strong Filipina, Jodilly took on the role of her family’s sole bread-winner. She has put herself through school along with her brother by working as a model.
Katarina, on the other hand, is proof that it’s possible for brain, brawn and beauty to make it in the modeling industry.
AsNTM Cycle 2 features a total of 16 models from 12 countries across Asia. They are Bona Kometa and Janice Hermijanto of Indonesia, Josephine Tan and Sheena Liam of Malaysia, Nicole Lee and Poojaa Gill of Singapore, Jessie Yang of China, Elektra Yu of Hong Kong, Ji-Hye Moon of South Korea, Marie Nakagawa of Japan, Natalie Pickles of Taiwan, Phan Nh? Th?o of Vietnam, Sneha Ghosh of India, Tia Taveepanichpan of Thailand, and Jodillyn and Katarina of Philippines.
Last year’s Philippine representative, Stephanie Retuya, landed 1st runner up in the Asia’s Next Top Model Season 1.
AsNTM season 2 has premiered last Wednesday with Jessie Yang of China and Elektra Yu of Hong Kong being eliminated.
