Hit reality TV series Asia’s Next Top Model is back for another season of fashion, feuds and rigorous competition on FOX Life, one of Asia’s leading general entertainment channels.

A few days ago, FOX Networks Group Asia and FOX Life officially announced the 14 young women who will compete in Season 6, selected from scores of auditioning hopefuls across the region who fought for their chance to take center stage in what promises to be the program’s most riveting season yet. 

Asia’s Next Top Model is the longest-running regional adapted TV series in Asia TV history. Season 6 introduces one of the most diverse and captivating cast from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, and Singapore. Each contestant will bring her own distinct look and extraordinary background to bag the coveted title of Asia’s Next Top Model.

The modeling search will be hosted by Asian supermodel Cindy Bishop for the third season in a row. Renowned celebrity fashion photographer Yu Tsai will once again act as Creative Director to help mentor and guide the models through the competition. 

Much-loved Asia’s Next Top Model alumni are also coming back in Season 6. Look out for fan favorites including Monika Sta. Maria from Season 3, and Shikin Gomez and Nguyen Minh Tu from Season 5. 

Executive Producer and Showrunner from Refinery Media, Karen Seah said, “Following the enormous reception from fans of last cycle, we are extremely excited to continue the momentum this cycle with pushing the boundaries of creativity and story-telling against the raw and edgy backdrop of Bangkok.” 

Dean Dezius, Vice President of Entertainment Channels, FOX Life & FOX, at FOX Networks Group Asia, added, “We’ve scoured the region to build a cast of truly impressive women, each with her own unique personal background and exceptional raw talent. Now entering our sixth cycle, we are once again thrilled to provide a platform for Asia’s brightest up-and-coming models to learn and grow as they test their abilities in fiercely competitive photo shoots. Bringing in fans new and old and creating an exciting platform for our brand partners, there’s no question that Asia’s Next Top Model Season 6 will be the can’t-miss TV show of the summer!”

Maureen really won the hearts of the people here and we’re sure the two girls representing the Philippines this season will do the same,” said Charo Espedido, FOX Networks Group Philippines Head of Marketing.
