ASAP 18 (All-Star Sunday Afternoon Party) is the longest-running musical variety show in the Philippines broadcast by ABS-CBN in the Philippines. The show is presented by its main hosts Zsa Zsa Padilla, Gary Valenciano and Martin Nievera. Currently, it became the longest-running musical variety show in the Philippines and on Asia. The show aired its pilot episode on February 5, 1995, and airs live Sundays. The show also broadcasts worldwide through ABS-CBN's The Filipino Channel.


The set of ASAP incorporating multiple LED displays.

When "Sa Linggo nAPO Sila" became "'Sang Linggo nAPO Sila" to replace Eat Bulaga which left ABS-CBN to transfer to GMA Network, ASAP was conceptualized and launched in 1995 as a "concert party" on Sundays. Then, Martin Nievera and Pops Fernandez, along with Ariel Rivera and Dayanara Torres, were tapped as main hosts for the show. The cast of "Pare Ko" (Claudine Barretto, Victor Neri, etc.) became co-hosts for the show to attract the younger viewers. When Dayanarra Torres left the country, Charlene Gonzales took her place. Channel V’s Joey Mead also joined the show for a while. By 1998, regular guest Zsa Zsa Padilla became a regular host the following year. After Martin Nievera left, Richard Gomez took his place. In March 1999, Onemig Bondoc joined the group.

The show originally had their own theme song, set. Initial broadcast commenced on February 1995 at the Delta Theatre in Quezon Avenue. In January 1997, they transferred to their own studio at the ABS-CBN Broadcasting Center Studio 3 in Eugenio Lopez Drive in Quezon City. It was a few years later when they moved to Studio 10.

In 2003, the show was reformatted as ASAP Mania, after which some of its original hosts went to the show SOP Rules. In 2005 the format changed to ASAP '05. In 2008, Lani Misalucha and Billy Joe Crawford joined ASAP. Ex-SOP performer Karylle, Zsa Zsa Padilla's daughter, also joined ASAP.[1]

On January 8, 2010, the show was relaunched as ASAP XV to mark its 15th anniversary. In the show's special anniversary on February 7, 2010, a new set was introduced. After the year numbers in the show title wasn't adapted in 2010, a new show named ASAP Rocks launched January 2, 2011. On April 3, 2011, a new set was introduced. On January 1, 2012, the show was launched as ASAP 2012.

Taiki Kudou
Digimon character
First appearance Phase 1: The Five Siblings Warriors
Voiced by Coleen Garcia
Japanese name Kudou Taiki
Digimon Shoutmon

Taiki Kudou (工藤タイキ Kudou Taiki?) is a character in the Digimon franchise, and serves as the protagonist in the sixth season of the anime series.. Taiki is described in V-Jump magazine as "a hot-blooded 7th grader who saves the weak." He leads the red "Xros Heart" army, and is partnered with Shoutmon. Among others, Dorulumon, Starmons, Ballistamon and Cutemon also accompany him. Taiki's childhood friend Akari Hinomoto and "eternal rival" and classmate Zenjirou Tsurugi complete the posse. He is athletic and cannot turn down a challenge. He has genius capabilities but is naive about his prodigy abilities. His father is a sports trainer who travels throughout Japan.[2] As the General of Xros Heart, Taiki possesses a red Xros Loader Digivice, which allows his soldiers to "DigiXros", allowing them to fuse together.


Like most of the lead protagonists, Taiki wears goggles. Interestingly, his design resembles a "fusion" of traits of previous male leads. He seems to have a mix of Tai's and Takuya's hairstyles, with Tai's white gloves, Davis's hair color, Takato's blue shirt, pants and tennis shoes, and the reddish vest colors from both Takuya and Marcus. After being forced out the digital world, Taiki like the rest of the cast changes his outfit. However, the only change was a shirt that is mostly red on the left side and blue on the right, and was later emblazed with the Xros Heart symbol by Omnimon.


Taiki has an overly outgoing personality. He is always happy, and often tries to see the good in his enemies, much to Shoutmon's chagrin. His motto is "I can't turn my back on anyone." Taiki cares for pretty much everyone, and wishes for an all good world where no one is evil. He has a tendency to never refuse a favor asked to him and often overexerts himself to the point of collaspe and even endangering himself, which often gets him yelled at by Akari. Taiki is however, shown to be a natural leader, looking out for his army, friends, as well as complete strangers.

Taiki is a child prodigy, being very athletic and a highly skilled strategist. He participates in many sports like basketball and kendo while showing immeadiate expertise despite just starting out. Using these abilties, he is able to adapt to any situation in order to turn the tide of battle.


In the first episode he is seen having a dream about him being a general, later on that morning he helps out a friend with a basketball game and afterwords he collapses. After the game he and Akari sit outside the sports center when Zenjiro shows up and challenges Taiki to another Kendo match (having lost to Taiki before) when he hears a voice saying that he is going to die. Taiki then follows the voice and finds a small transparent version of a dying Shoutmon. All of a sudden a blinding light shows him a white X Loader appears, a mysterious light asks him if he wants to save the dying melody (Shoutmon) Taiki answers yes and the X-loader turn Red and he, Akari and Zenjiro are transported to the digital world.

Moved by Shoutmon's sincere wish to become the King of the Digital World in order to bring peace to it, Taiki decides to help Shoutmon and their friends and together, they form their own faction, "Team Xros Heart", and depart to travel through the Digital World, collecting the Code Crowns by themselves. During their travels they meet many friendly Digimon who join their cause and they face the evil minions of the Bagra Army, including the three Head Officers, Tactimon, Lilithmon and Blastmon. They also encounter rival armies Blue Flare, led by Kiriha, and Twilight, secretly led by DarkKnightmon with Nene as a tool in his schemes. After Nene is rescued from DarkKnightmon, who created the Darkness Loader to execute Digi Xros without her help, she and her Digimon companions also join Xros Heart.

After all 108 Code Crowns were claimed, Tactimon manages to steal Taiki and Kiriha's Code Crowns. Though Tactimon is defeated by teamwork by the rival groups, Bagramon arrives and takes the Code Crowns for himself before sending Taiki, Akari, Zenjirouu, Shoutmon and Tactimon to the human world. With Xros Heart's core members disposed of, Bagramon is reunited with his brother DarkKnightmon as he begins his reign over the Digital World.

In the real world, Taiki tries to tell his mother of his adventures however his mother disregards his stories. Also Taiki attempts to fulfill Akari and Zenjirou's last wish before he tells them his decision to return to the digital world. He exclaims that he must save their friends and Nene and Kiriha in the digital world and how he can't just leave them. Also he exclaims that he has heard the voice he heard in the first episode who gave him his X-loader who turns out to be Omegamon.

Omegamon appears to the trio and explains the origin of the digimemories and the history of the digital world and tells them how he ended up in the human world as a digimemory and has been searching for the child who could hear the digital melody, which turned out to be Taiki.

In the real world, Tactimon returns and attempts to wreak havoc before his attempts are thwarted by Taiki and Shoutmon, who uses the power of Akari and Zenjirou's courage and friendship to digivolve into OmegaShoutmon, defeating Tactimon. Taiki gives a heartfelt goodbye to both Akari and Zenjirou before he leaves to the digital world as they must be left behind because Omegamon only has enough power to send Taiki back.

Upon returning to the Digital World, Taiki and Shoutmon learn that Bagramon had it reconstructed into a realm surrounding by Seven Kingdoms, each ruled by a Digimon general with their own Darkness Loaders. Reunited with their Xros Heart allies, Taiki and Nene convince Kiriha to join forces with them and they set to travel together through the Kingdoms to challenge the generals and liberate the Digital World from the Bagramon Army's oppression.

Voiced by Derek Ramsay
Japanese name Aonuma Kiriha
Digimon Ballistamon
Red Pickmon

Kiriha Aonuma (蒼沼キリハ Aonuma Kiriha?) is the General of the blue "Blue Flare" army. Kiriha is described in V-Jump magazine as "cold and calculated" and said to "eliminate enemies, in order to spread his power and influence". He is someone that shows very little empathy towards others including that of his own Digimon, as evident by his treatment of Golemon. He seems to be obsessed with strength and shows interest in Taiki Kudou because of his strength and abilities, wishing to add him to his own army. While he has shown to be helpful toward Taiki and his friends it was only an attempt to persuade Taiki to join his army, and when his offer was declined he immediately stopped helping. He recognizes Nene Amano by the beginning of the series, and eventually joins forces with her, though he leaves her when she tries to force him to torture a defeated Stingmon for information, despite him objecting that it would be beneath him. In the second phase of the show, he allies himself with Taiki and Nene, forming the Xros Heart United Army.


Kiriha is a young man looking at least a year older than Taiki. He's tall, blond, and very intimidating. His eyes seem to cut into you like MailBirdramon's Tail. In Part Two, he grows his hair out a little longer, and changes into a blue leather jacket. If you look at him long enough, he looks like a totally different person.


Kiriha is very cold, especially when it comes to his Army. The first hint of his attitude is shown when he throws aside his Golemon after digixrosing with his MailBirdramon. He seems to not care much about his Digimon except when it comes to Greymon, MailBirdramon, and Deckerdramon. Deckerdramon even states that the reason he joins Blue Flare is because of the love he saw in Kiriha's heart. However when Greymon and MailBirdramon fall down into the depths of the Disc Zone, Kiriha does not attempt to help them and states that if they cannot get out of the Zone on their own he would abandon them. This changed in Part Two, as when MetalGreymon is forced DigiXrossed with NeoVamdemon, he immediately gives up on MetalGreymon, thinking it impossible to get him back. But when Taiki comes up with the idea to find the white Lopmon and defeat NeoVamdemon, he goes to the measures of risking his life fighting NeoVamdemon's army of LadyDevimon in order to save MetalGreymon.

Akari Hinomoto (陽ノ本アカリ Hinomoto Akari?) is a character in the Digimon Xros Wars series. Akari is the childhood friend of Taiki Kudou, and is one year younger than him.


Akari often appears to be a strict pre-teen trying to keep things in order. She has shown a cheery side however when she took a picture that might look good as a background for her cellphone. Akari has a close bond with Taiki as an older sister-younger brother relationship, despite the fact that Akari is younger than Taiki. This personality is probably attributed because of her care for her own brothers and sister. She often worries about Taiki when he does stunts without thinking and overexerts himself and sometimes even yells at him for such actions. She does however care very much about Taiki and appeared to be jealous when Persiamon stayed by his bedside when Taiki came down with a fever. Akari also misses her family after coming to the Digital World and wants to return home.


Akari lives with her family helping take care of her three younger siblings, one of them she stated to play shooting games with, which helped in the Island Zone arc. At one point she met Taiki and they became close friends.

In the beginning of the series, she immediately freaks out about missing Marine Day and wants them all to go back home. She even suggests they track down another human when hearing about two other Generals being in the Digital World, thinking that they might know how to get home.

When hearing about the Code Crowns and the dreams of being Digimon King, she goes with it thinking that if Shoutmon becomes King, they'll be able to go home.

When they arrive at the Lake Zone, she seems to grow jealous of the friendship between Taiki and Persiamon, especially when she sees Persiamon watching over Taiki when he passes out. She begins to feel she isn't needed, lashing out at everyone thought to be her friends. She is later tricked by Lillithmon, who deceives her into thinking her Mom is calling out to her through a "magic mirror with a link to the Human World". Lillithmon soon tricks her into stealing the Code Crown for her, convincing her that she'll be able to return home. The spell breaks when Taiki proves that she is needed by everyone, being she keeps them all grounded. She then cuts Lillithmon with the Code Crown, which although causes Lillithmon's rage, gives her much more confidence in herself and her friends.

When they arrive at the Sand Zone, she constantly complains about Xros Heart always getting into dangerous situations, which eventually comes true when they almost get captured by Bagura Army forces. She later opens the Treasure Ruin using her charm, leading to Xros Heart gaining another Code Crown and four new DigiMemories.

Zenjirou Tsurugi

Voiced by JM de Guzman
Japanese name Tsurugi Zenjirou
Digimon Ballistamon
Red Pickmon

Zenjirou Tsurugi (剣ゼンジロウ Tsurugi Zenjirou?) is a character in the Digimon Xros Wars series. Zenjirou is a classmate of Taiki Kudou. He practices Kendo and is very principled, hating immorality and injustice. He calls himself "[Taiki's] eternal rival." He is afraid of heights, but is a capable leader and leads Xros Heart when Taiki is incapacitated. Zenjirou has a severe crush on Nene Amano, which can sometimes lead him to make a fool of himself. In battle, Zenjirou will use the Rare Star Sword to fight in person.


Zenjirou seems to constantly agree with Akari about Taiki's rash behavior and crazy decisions.

When MadLeomon attacks the Village of Smiles for the third time, Zenjirou is stuck up on a newly sprouted bamboo stalk caused by a Bagura Army Drimogemon. With only his Wrister to communicate to the ground forces below, Taiki sends Zenjirou the Rare Star Sword so that he can strike a glowing are on the ground, which is found out to be Drimogemon, causing the Bamboo to recede back into the ground, and causing MadLeomon to go into an uproar.

In the Island Zone, Zenjirou helps raid the Mantaraymon ships using the Rare Star Sword to fend off some enemy Divermon.

In the Lake Zone, once Taiki passes out, Zenjirou takes over as Taiki's proxy, commanding the Xros Heart forces to fight off IceDevimon's forces. Once Daipenmon freezes the grounds, Zenjirou is saved thanks to Knightmon guarding him with his shield. Zenjirou then spots Taiki, chasing after him with a PawnChessmon spear that he borrowed, in order to help save Akari. He then uses the spear to save Akari from getting mutilated by Lillithmon.

After all 108 Code Crowns were claimed, Tactimon attacks Taiki and Kiriha for their Code Crowns. Although Tactimon is defeated by teamwork by the rival groups, Bagramon uses a dimensional warp to take the Code Crowns for himself, sending Taiki, Akari, Zenjirouu, Shoutmon and Tactimon to the human world. With Xros Heart's core members disposed of, Bagramon is reunited with his brother DarkKnightmon as he begins his reign over the Digital World.

In the real world it seems that their time in the digital world is only a fraction of the time in human world and barely any time has passed since they left. When meeting up with his friends again he exclaims that his father thought he was making things up when describing the Digital World. When Taiki tells him that he will return to the Digital World to save the others Zenjirou expresses his frustration by kicking the Kendo set that Taiki brought, which was meant to grant Zenjirou's last wish before Taiki left. Later the trio meet with the spirit of Omnimon who explains the origin of DigiMemories and the history of the Digital World. Taiki, Akari, and Zenjirou explain that they want to return to the Digital World, and although Omnimon agrees, he only has enough power to send Taiki back. Although saddened, Taiki assures Akari and Zenjirou that they will always be a part of Xros Heart, and while their absence will be a loss to Xros Heart, both of them are great warriors and have been a special part of Xros Heart, and that Zenjirou was always there for the team when Taiki was down.

Meanwhile, Tactimon attempts to wreak havoc before his attempts are thwarted by Taiki and Shoutmon, who digivolves into OmegaShoutmon due to Akari and Zenjirou courage and friendship, allowing him to destroy Tactimon. As Taiki returns to the Digital World, he gives a heartfelt goodbye to Akari and Zenjirou, and Zenjirou exclaims that he and Akari will help Taiki for sure.

Nene Amano
Digimon character
First appearance Phase 1: The Five Siblings Warriors
Voiced by Arci Munoz
Japanese name Amano Nene
Relatives Yuu Amano (brother)
Digimon Sparrowmon

Nene Amano (天野ネネ Amano Nene?) is a character in the Digimon Xros Wars series, and serves as one of the female protagonists. At first, V-Jump magazine described her as "an enigmatic beautiful girl that leads a mysterious army", but for the second phase she is described as "an enigmatic beautiful girl that fights against the darkness with strong determination." During her time as the General of the black "Twilight" army, Nene was said to be searching for powerful soldiers for unknown reasons, using her Monitamon to spy on the other armies and sometimes assisting Xros Heart in their battles. At one point she joined forces with Kiriha and Blue Flare, but she is currently aligned with Taiki as part of Xros Heart. Her Xros Loader was black (orginally hold by his brother Yuu), but its color changed to lavender after she joined Xros Heart. Nene is followed by her partner Digimon: Mervamon, Sparrowmon, Monimon and three Monitamon.


Nene is frequently described as a "beautiful girl" in both the show and the promotional materials. She is a fairly tall girl (shorter than Zenjirou but taller than Taiki) with brown hair, which is worn up, purple eyes and fair skin. Her attire consisted of white cowboy boots with pink trims, a purple dress with black trims, a lab coat and several gold chains around her neck, but in the second phase of the show she changed her clothing and now wears a pink sleeveless top underneath a pink and white jacket and a pink short frilly skirt.


Nene has a very mysterious personality when first revealed. She has a strong habit of spying on people to gain information (which she does frequently before joining Team Xros Heart). She is willing to do anything in order to obey DarkKnightmon's orders, going as far as to torture Stingmon for information or threaten Kiriha so that he'll join up with them. It's revealed that this is because she is willing to do anything for her brother, even "Following the Devil himself". Kiriha states that she is extremely good at manipulating people, which she usually uses for her advantage. After joining Xros Heart, Nene became friendlier and more compassionate, but her determination for saving her brother remained as strong as ever.

Nene has a strong bond with Sparrowmon and, in the second phase, becomes partners with Mervamon, with whom Nene sympathizes despite thinking of her as pushy and immature.


Nene first appears shortly after the defeat of MadLeomon, watching Taiki and his friends with her Monitamon. She is later seen watching Taiki and Kiriha demonstrating their powers. She introduces herself to Team Xros Heart after the final defeat of MadLeomon. She appears to have a great interest in Taiki and playfully calls him "Red". After explaining the purpose of the "Code Crowns" and helping open a portal to the Island Zone, she disappears as quickly as she appeared. She reappears later to compliment Kiriha on his battle, and telling him about Taiki being trapped on the Island Zone and having the DigiMemories. In the Magma Zone, she informs Kiriha of Taiki's predicament with Tactimon and AncientVolcamon.

After Xros Heart rescues the Lake Zone, Nene says the power of Xros Heart is too hot for her, and makes the decision to partner with Kiriha Aonuma's Blue Flare. To show him her power, she takes out the black Xros Loader and reloads Sparrowmon.

In the Sand Zone, she and Kihira search for the code crown only for Taiki to find it, then they engage Blastmon in battle. Even thought they're able to stand their ground against Blastmon, they are blown away when Blastmon releases his Crystal Bullets. She then continues on to the next Zone.

She later arrives in the Heaven Zone with her partner, DarkKnightmon, preventing Shoutmon from attacking Lucemon Chaos Mode. She reveals that she made a deal with the Bagra Army, that Lucemon could take the zone's Code Crown, while she would have access to the dark power hidden within the Temple of Darkness. She replies to Xros Heart's dismay by stating that she will "take the darkness regardless of any destruction to the Heaven Zone." But when Lucemon interupts the transfer, she is captured inside a giant orb of dark energy, resulting in Sparrowmon's constant attempts to rescue her.

When Taiki and Kiriha confront her in Deckerdramon's sanctuary, Nene reveals that she is working for DarkKnightmon because something happened to her little brother, Yuu Amano, and DarkKnightmon is the only one who knows how to send the both of them back to the human world. Once Kiriha obtains Deckerdramon, DarkKnightmon states that they no longer are required to be in Forest Zone, so he commands Nene to store him and Nene leaves to the Dust Zone, stating it out loud as a clue to Taiki to come save her. DarkKnightmon takes them both to the Dust Zone, where he imprisons Nene in his tower. After a grand battle between all four armies, in which DarkKnightmon obtains the Darkness Loader and casts Nene aside now that he no longer needs her, Xros Heart rescues Nene and she and the remnants of Twilight join their army. During the rescue of Princess Babamon, Nene's X Loader reformats and becomes lavender.

After Taiki returns to the Digital World in the second phase, Nene joins him along with Kiriha. In Vampire Land, while Taiki tries to enter WhiteLopmon's Chamber, Nene and Sparrowmon fend off an army of LadyDevimon sent by NeoVamdemon to eliminate them. She later watches in on the fight between OmegaShoutmon, ZeekGreymon and NeoVamdemon.

In Honey Land, she teams up with Mervamon after Zamielmon forces Mervamon and her brother, Ignitemon, to fight each other for his amusement. She and Mervamon also fight together in the battle against Zamielmon in his Honey Wonderland. Following Zamielmon's fall, Mervavamon decides that she likes fighting with Nene and becomes her partner. After hearing Kiriha talk about a mysterious blonde kid he saw in the forest, she begins to think her brother, Yuu Amano, is nearby.

Philippines’ Next Top Model was a Filipino reality competition broadcast by the Radio Philippines Network where a number of women competed for the title of the country's "next top model". The series was a local version of America's Next Top Model and was won by Grendel Alvarado of Bacolod, who received a modeling representation with Starz People in Hong Kong, an editorial fashion spread in Preview magazine, US$10,000 courtesy of Mane and Tail Shampoo, a P150,000 modeling contract with Saga Events, a one-year local endorsement campaign from L'Oréal Paris, one-year complimentary treatments from Marie France and Facial Care Center, a south sea pearl necklace from Jewelmer, and the title "Jewelmer’s Pearl Ambassador to the World". The international destination for this cycle was Victoria, Hong Kong.

The show did not continue for a second series.


The first Philippines' Next Top Model selected fourteen contestants and ran for at thirteen episodes. It showcased some twists and a surprise double-elimination. Like America's Next Top Model, there is one contestant eliminated per episode (though there have been cases of a double elimination or no elimination) by consensus of the judging panel. During the program, PNTM used the idea of Ruffa-text instead the usual Mail like in ANTM - Tyra Mail, Australian version - Erika, Jodhi or Sarah Mail and others. This is because of the wide range of Filipinos known for SMS or much loved for texting and the Philippines being known as the SMS capital of the world.

Episode summaries[edit]

The Girls Get Waxes[edit]

Original Airdate: March 13, 2007

PNTM started off by auditioning in Davao held by model Wilma Doesnt, in Cebu held by fashion director Robby Carmona and in Manila held by Wilma Doesnt, Robby Carmona and top model Rissa Mananquil. 3,300 contestants tried out and the girls were whittled down to 27 for the semi-finals.

The 27 girls who are the semi-finals were flown to Hotel Intercontinental, Makati. The girls took their first challenge, and they met Ruffa Guttierez for the first time. While on the final screening, they faced the judges in panel of Robbie Carmona, Wilma Doesnt, and Ruffa Guttierez who tested them in runway challenge and questioned why should they be the Philippines' Next Top Model. Finally, the contestants was narrowed down to 14 girls by the judges and the hopeful models were moved to their fashion-modeled house. The girls were given the chance to choose their own room, as well as beds for the entire run of the show. Since there were only 12 beds, the girls race to claim a space for themselves. Unfortunately, for Elf and Jen, they failed to have their beds for themselves and had to sleep in the living room.

The next day the girls got to meet a special visitor, who gave them a Brazilian wax. Most of the girls felt the waxing was too much and complained about it. After their painful waxing, they had their first photo shoot: a bikini shoot at Rizal Avenue - Manila. The photo shoot was conducted with the help of Xander Angeles, a renowned photographer in the Philippines. Also, to help mentor the girls, Joey Mead was brought on the set.

During panel, the judges felt that both Sara and Marj both failed to exert effort during the photo shoot. The judges criticized Sara for not having personality in her photo. Marj, on the other hand, was noted for her poorly done performance and lack of personality. Their photos deemed poor by the judges and criticized them on their lack of personality, the reasons given why both of them were eliminated in the competition.

The girls got their first runway lesson by Wilma Doesnt and Robby Carmona and were taught how to walk with attitude. The judges gave the girls animal roles to act out while walking on the runway. Their first challenge was to have a fierce runway walk through mud. Sheena sashayed herself a win and picks Raine, Wen and Gemma to share in her prize. The prize was dinner with top models Joey Mead and Rissa Mananquil.

The next day the girls go to Celine where they each got a free bag of products, but they did not know that the challenge is to pose with those bags and also conducted by Raymund Isaac, and announced that there was a tie in the challenge and who were Grendel and Sheena. They won 25 extra frames in the next photoshoot Later that day, the girls get a Ruffa-text about their next photo shoot. The girls arrived at their second shoot and were told it was a high-fashion shoot involving lingerie. Sheena took center stage with her high fashion photo while Bambi, Raine and Wen were commended on their fierce attitude in the shoot.

During the elimination, the judges felt Mira had emotional baggage due to her grandma having surgery during screening day and lacks passion for the competition. They also felt that Wen had a hard time to find the edgy high fashion look that she has. Because of that, it was Wen who was sent home.

The Girl Who Can Act[edit]

Original Airdate: April 3, 2007

This week, the remaining ten girls learned the art of acting. They went to a theatre and were greeted by Ruffa who explained the secrets for acting. Ruffa introduced director Fritz who taught the girls of techniques on acting and about having presence in the camera or stage. Afterwards model Joey Mead introduced the girls to their acting challenge. The girls were given props and had to improve emotions with each prop. Some of the girls didn't have any idea on how to use the props while others excelled greatly. Raine ended up winning the challenge with her interpretation of 'sadness' with a remote control. Her prize was a massage and a spa treatment in the house and chose Sheena and Jen to accompany her. While the three girls were receiving their treatment, those who did not win the challenge were forced to clean the house.

Tensions rose as Bambi's personality rubbed some of the contestants the wrong way, especially Joy. The photo shoot theme this week was Murderers on the Loose and took place in an old warehouse. They were asked to pair up and choose who is the murderer and the dead. Grendel, Jen and Rina impressed Vincent Uy, the creative director of Preview magazine in the shoot.

Bambi & Jen
Elf & Jayna
Gemma & Raine

During elimination Jayna and Raine landed in the bottom two. Raine's picture was awkward and the judges felt that she doesn't fit into the modeling business. The judges were not impressed with Jayna's picture saying she still rested on looking pretty and criticized her lack of passion. Despite Raine's challenge win, her awkward picture got her the boot.

The Girl Who Flew Away[edit]

Original Airdate: April 10, 2007

The show starts off with the remaining girls packing for an overnight trip to Subic. Little did they know that they will go there for physical training. Headed by military men, Tim and Jun, the exercises included warm-ups, obstacle courses, trekking and wall-climbing. While Bambi earned the ire of Wilma Doesnt due to her lack of commitment for the training, the others seem to have fun. At the end of the trek, the girls did an impromptu photo shoot. Afterwards Wilma revealed that the training was an actual challenge, and discovered most of the girls were not physically fit. However, Elf proved herself to be physically fit and won the challenge and a 'surprise prize' was given to her at the Top Model house.

Returning home, Elf was surprised to find a nice dinner set up at the garden and was even more surprised when Mira appeared. It was revealed that the two of them were having a platonic relationship, even though Elf had a boyfriend. Elf confessed that she indeed had a boyfriend, but that he was cool with the Mira situation.

The next day the girls do a photo shoot where they had to pose as birds flying while jumping on a trampoline.

The Girl Who Just Doesn't Get It[edit]

Original Airdate: April 17, 2007

This week the remaining girls learned the art of being presentable in a party scene from Tim Yap. The girls were taken to Embassy Bar at The Fort where they were secretly observed. The judges were seeing how the girls naturally act without them around and took a look at some of the girls real attitudes. Some of the girls were very confident and presented themselves well, while others failed to show an impressive front. The next day, the girls were cast into a photo shoot where they had to endorse a perfume. Each girl represented a scent and a different word to guide their performance.

Bambi Promesse by Cacharel
Elf Romance by Ralph Lauren
Grendel Lancôme Miracle Forever
Jayna Ralph Lauren Ralph HOT
Jen Giorgio Armani ARMANI Code
Joy Lancôme So Magic!
Rina Hypnose by Lancôme
Sheena City Glam by Emporio Armani

At deliberation only Jen, Grendel, Rina, Sheena, and Joy presented good photos. Elf's photo was considered a good beauty shot, but she missed the point of her shoot (per Xander Angeles). Bambi's body language was good in her photo, but her face was off while Jayna once again failed to turn in a good shot. The judges put Jayna and Bambi in bottom two. Though Jayna had a stronger portfolio overall, she lacked consistency in her photographs, and her poor performance at the party didn't bode well for her. Bambi's shoots all looked the same according to the judges. The judges debated on who would go home: the girl who seemed to have given everything but it might not be enough (Bambi), or the girl who has so much to give but doesn't put enough(Jayna). In the end, the judges decide that Jayna's time was up despite a stellar portfolio and potential, and she was sent home leaving the judges in tears and the girls shocked having been a frontrunner.

The Girl Who Is A Fighter[edit]

Original Airdate: April 22, 2007

This week the girls began their morning rituals. Some girls practiced their runway skills in the garden whilek others just sat and had a talk. Afterwards, the girls got a lecture from Ms. O (Olen Lim) about the strengths and weaknesses of a model and finding the right position and angle during a shoot, as well as taking the posture in consideration. Bambi won the challenge and she chose Grendel and Joy to share her prize. Her prize is a day of relaxation at The Spa.

Back at the Top Model House, Ruffa Guttierrez made a visit while most of them were preparing for the day. Ruffa had a one-on-one talk with each of them about their standing in the competition. Jen went first and talked about how she landed the top spot from last week's elimination. Next, Bambi felt she had another chance to boost her maturity in the competition, while Sheena struggles because of some family issues. Elf, shed tears about her relationship with her Mom while Rina felt alone after Jayna exited the competition. Grendel and Joy take their time to get some inspiration and after meeting with each contestant, the girls were told to prepare for their next photo shoot.

For their seventh photo shoot the girls had to pose for a beauty shoot with a shoe on top of their head. The shoes were fastened to each girls head as they tried to show some fierceness in the shoot. Also they did a photoshoot while they are playing Volleyball.

Jen and Bambi did well, while the photographer felt Joy and Elf lacks emotion. At deliberation, the judges applauded Elf for her two beautiful photos, which showed her feminine side despite having a hard look. In the end, Ruffa called Joy, and Sheena to step forward. Ruffa asked each who they thought should be eliminated, but two of them refused to answer. Joy suggested she might be eliminated because of the poor delivery of her photo. Ruffa asked Sheena to tell her what she could offer and why she should stay in the competition. Sheena answered fluently that she would take the judges' critique and use it to her advantage.

The Girl Who Made It Work[edit]

Original Airdate: May 01, 2007

In this episode, the girls learn how to be versatile in the clothes they wear. The girls have a one-on-one session with Joey Mead at the Salabianca learning how to create different attires using different types of clothes. Joey Mead asked the girls to pair up and create an attire for their respective partners. Bambi and Joy were paired together but found that both of them were difficulty due to tension brewing between them. Joy even joked that she's going to make Bambi look like a "mangkukulam" or witch.

The girls met up with Joey Mead again at an ukay-ukay store (Bargain hunting store) and they figured out it was a challenge. The challenge for that day was to emulate the picture of the outfit given to them with only 300 pesos (roughly $6.43). The challenge proved difficult for the girls due to their funds running low and many of them had to resort to haggling. After purchasing their clothing, the girls modeled their looks and Grendel was chosen as the winner. The reward was a 20,000 pesos shopping spree and chose Elf to receive 10,000 pesos shopping spree with her. The girls enjoyed their shopping sprees at CMG and Bysi.

Back in the house, tensions continued to rise between Joy and Bambi. Joy accused Bambi of discriminating against her because she is from the rural while Bambi vehemently declined her accusations leading to Bambi breaking down in the confessional.

For the next photo shoot the girls had to pose with couture gowns. Despite being taught earlier about body control and manipulation, the girls found it hard to pose in their respective gowns.

On deliberation times, the judges gave high prize to Jen's photograph and harshly criticized Bambi's. When it was Joy's turn to be judged she brought up the tension between her and Bambi. Ruffa had Bambi step forward and explain her behavior. Bambi defended that she is not discriminating Joy and claimed she would never let anyone discriminate Joy because she is beautiful. Considering who will be the bottom two, Rina and Bambi were called forward. Rina was called for her lackluster photograph and Bambi for her inability to show more to the judges. After the hard deliberation, Bambi got the boot while Rina moves on to the final five.

The Girl Who Didn't Stand Out[edit]

Original Airdate: May 08, 2007

Now that the competition is down to five girls, the tension began heating up. Previously Bambi was booted because of her inconsistency with her photographs. The girls went to their next challenge led by fashion director Robbie Carmona, and had to participate in a mini-runway fashion show. They were to model a casual outfit, swimwear, and a fashion couture outfit. Joy was praised for her walk in her yellow one-piece bikini, Jen was criticized for being too 'raw', while Rina got the best shot in her black ball gown dress. Elf again got high praises for her stunning legs during the swimwear run, but in the end Grendel won the challenge for showcasing her versatility.

On their eighth photo-shoot, they had to performe with the rest of the transgender Showgirls of Amazing Philippines and had to stand out while being in a crowd. Jen, Joy and Grendel struggled with their performance, while Rina and Elf showed much confidence during their respective shoots.

That next night Jen, Grendel Joy, Elf, and Rina went up against the judges for deliberations. The judges showcased the least and poor performance of each girl during the run of the show. Joy was criticized because of her beauty queen attitude that she exuded during photo shoots. Grendel and Jen were criticized for playing it too safe and not bringing enough fierceness coming into the finale of the show. They both were becoming more confident but the judges felt it might not be enough for that stage of the competition. Elf was once again berated for her inconsistencies in her photos while Rina was praised for being very confident and having a different look from the other four ladies. Joy and Jen were called for the bottom of two for their poor performances during the competition. Joy was told she had poor delivery of having a showgirl attitude and had been upstaged by the other showgirls. Jen was told she was a pretty girl and should have more confidence in herself as Joy was sent home.

Top Model Joey Mead visited the four remaining finalists—Rina, Elf, Grendel and Jen—at the PNTM house to give them a workshop on casting and to share 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. Their challenge was a mock 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 a top model attitude in a high fashion glamour gown walk-off. Afterwards, the girls were interviewed by Rajo and given critiques on their go-see performances. Grendel once again stood out and won the go-see challenge 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 tenth photo shoot. They were treated to a Brazilian wax at Laybare Salon before heading to Batangas. In Laiya Beach Resort, they posed for an exotic swimwear photo shoot with a Jewel of the Sea theme.

The Girl Who is Lackluster[edit]

Original Airdate: May 29, 2007

The episode begins by recapping the final four - Rina, Grendel Jen, and Elf. A surprise at the last elimination revealed that none of the remaining girls were eliminated. The girls are enjoying the last couple of weeks remaining, until the final catwalk, and are relaxing and generally getting along.

The next day Joey Mead visits them at the Top Model house to give a final brief lesson for an International Go-see. Afterwards they were presented with their next challenge. Their first challenge was to do an impromptu commercial brand shoot to present a nicer outlook. Their second challenge was to snag a guy at a socialite party. Model Jeff Rodriguez played the role of the guy as each girl tried their hand at conversing with him. Elf is seen being too sexy with the model, Grendel stood in a starstruck matter and lost points for confidence, Jen felt so nervous around Jeff, and Rina became very overbearing. Afterwards the girls watched their interactions on screen and were critiqued on their performances. Afterwards, each girl got a text from Ruffa telling them about their next photo shoot in Hong Kong.

The girls were tremendously excited about the news until a surprise twist brought their celebration to a halt. After learning about the destination, Elf decided to leave the competition because of her concerns about her family problems back in her hometown. The other girls bid a sad goodbye to Elf as she returns home and away from the competition.

  • Quit: Elf Stehr

With only three girls remaining, they packed their bags and flew off to Hong Kong. With their arrival the final three had their first pre-challenge given by Robby Carmona. They were to stroll around main city and look for some landmarks to familiarize themselves. After taking some pictures at the landmarks, the girls met Robby and were told to write down all the streets they'd actually seen. Jen answered two correctly, Rina got five, and Grendel remembered eight. Grendel won the challenge and her prize was a shopping spree on the main land.

In a few days, Jen, Rina, and Grendel got to meet Xander for their twelfth photo shoot. It was revealed to the girls that their next photo shoot was a campaign for Breast Cancer. It was also revealed that the photo shoot was going to be a nude photo shoot and left each girl shocked. Rina went first and had no inhibitions while Jen was nerve-wracked in front of the camera. Grendel did okay but Xander was concerned about her confusing execution.

At the judging panel, Jen, Rina, and Grendel faced the jury once again. Grendel took her evaluation first and was told she needed to relax in her photo. Rina impressed the judges again with her powerful and meaningful shot but lacked facial expression. Jen didn't stand out in her photo but was praised for being tasteful in the shot. Rina got called out first while Grendel and Jen took the bottom two. In the end Jen was booted out of the competition.

The Girl Who Becomes Philippines' Next Top Model[edit]

Original Airdate: June 5 & June 12, 2007

Part 1

The final two are put to their last challenge where they had to do an international Go-see. They were introduced to the General Manager of Starz People, Ms. Mee Yang, to attend their final challenge. They had to meet three important individuals who would help them with the presentation of their portfolio. First they had to meet international model based in Hong Kong Amanda Leon. Second, they had to introduce themselves to the editor-in-chief of Cover Magazine - Jean Pierre Magario. Finally, the girls had a runway challenge and fashion lecture with creative consultant Gregory Derham. After the challenge it was revealed that both girls won the challenge and their prize was a shopping spree at the Central District of Hong Kong.

The next day, the final two went to their final shoot. The theme of the shoot was Street Fashion Couture. Guest make-up artist, Steven Doloso, gave them some final tips to prepare for their looks. The girls had to show the high fashion theme in three different photographs in two different locations.

At judging, Rina was told she gave more flexibility and attitude while Grendel managed to show more of her innate confidence and natural talent. It was announced no one had been eliminated due to Elf's voluntary expulsion and they headed back to Manila.

Part 2

The final two flew back to Manila and proceeded to their final series of challenges. Rina and Grendel had their final shoot where they performed some product endorsements for L'Oréal Paris. Being challenged on beauty shoots for the product and TVC requirements, both of them push their skills to the limit. Make-up stylist Jigs Mayuga gave them their final instructions for their shoot while guest photographer, Pat Dy, gave them their last on-screen advise. Later, they went to their commercial endorsement with Robert Quebral coaching the shoot. Afterwards the girls went to a casting for Zara clothing line and went into fitting to ready themselves for the final runway challenge.

The next day, Rina and Grendel faced off with other international models and took the lead during the technical rehearsal. Finally, Rina and Grendel walked the catwalk for the ZARA Summer Collection at NBC Tent, The Fort. The judges were there along with guests like Joey Mead, Tim Yap, and Jigs Mayuga. Grendel had a very unqiue style on the runway while maintaining grace and energy. Rina tried to lessen her fear and gave a confident walk that wowed some of the judges.

At judging, the final two faced their last individual evaluation. Rina went first. The judges comment that her runway walk was only fair in comparison to Grendel's. However, they gave her very high marks on her commercial endorsements and photos. Grendel didn't give as great performance during the shoot but was praised for her performance during the runway challenge.

With a difficult decision in their hands, the judges decided that Grendel Alvarado was to be the first winner of Philippines' Next Top Model.

Her performance gained her the Star Award for TV for Best Single Performance by an Actress. By January 2008, she launched her first drama series with the network entitled Lobo, together with Piolo Pascual in the lead role. She earned an International Emmy Award for Best Performance by an Actress nomination for her performance in the series.

In 2009, Locsin starred in the top-rated TV series, Only You, a Philippine remake of the Korean drama of the same title aired by SBS Korea in 2005. She starred alongside Sam Milby and Diether Ocampo. The show was directed by Rory Quintos.

Later in 2010, she starred in the TV series Imortal, the sequel to her earlier work, Lobo, together with John Lloyd Cruz. It was directed by Chito Roño.

In 2011, she became a guest star in the comedy sitcom, Toda Max. However, her guesting eventually turned into a regular stint.[6]


Locsin's first film appearance was in 2000 via Ping Lacson Supercop, wherein she played the role of a young Robina Gokongwei. She later on made a cameo appearance in Mano Po 2 in 2003 and starred in the teen-oriented movie Kuya in 2004 as well as in the comedy film Singles. Also, she starred in the drama film Mano Po III: My Love and in the horror film Sigaw which were both entries to the 2004 Metro Manila Film Festival.

In 2005, Locsin with Richard Gutierrez starred in the romantic film Let the Love Begin, released under GMA Films. She and Gutierrez also reprised their roles as Alwina and Aguiluz in the movie adaptation of the TV series Mulawin, which was an entry to the 2005 Metro Manila Film Festival.

Early in 2006, Locsin starred in the romantic movie I Will Always Love You. She also starred in the horror film TxT and in the romantic drama-comedy film Mano Po 5. The latter was an entry to the 2006 Metro Manila Film Festival.

Locsin reunited with Gutierrez in the romantic drama film The Promise in 2007 where their roles were considered more mature than the previous films they both starred in. She had also produced her own film entitled Angels, which was shown in theaters on April 2007.

In 2009, she starred in the movie Love Me Again together with Piolo Pascual in the lead titles and made a cameo in the romantic comedy film, My Amnesia Girl in 2010.

Locsin gained critical acclaim in her 2011 drama film with Aga Muhlach, In the Name of Love. Her performance garnered her several accolades including the Star Award for Movies for Movie Actress of the Year, the Gawad PASADO Award for Pinakapasadong Aktres, and a nomination for best actress at the FAMAS Awards.

She reunited with John Lloyd Cruz in the romantic comedy film Unofficially Yours in 2012 and then starred, together with Dingdong Dantes and Angelica Panganiban in the drama film One More Try, Star Cinema's entry to the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival. Locsin's performance in the latter was highly praised by film critics and media personalities and earned her the Star Award for Movies for Movie Actress of the Year for the second year in a row, the FAMAS Award for Best Actress and the Film Academy of the Philippines Award for Best Actress.

Personal life[edit]

On April 23, 2007, Locsin celebrated her birthday with GABRIELA Foundation, an NGO that supports women and children. On April 20, 2008, Locsin organized a gift-giving to the less fortunate children in Payatas, Quezon City and gave poor children food, clothing and other basic needs. It was her birthday gift supported by her sponsors.

Juan Miguel de Guzman (born September 9, 1988), popularly known by his screen name JM De Guzman, is a Filipino actor.

Life and career[edit]

JM de Guzman started his career as a print and TVC model. He was a cast in Ang TV 2 (as JM "Butik" De Guzman), where his batch mates include Sarah Geronimo, Shaina Magdayao and Denise Laurel. During his elementary and high school years, he studied at Lourdes School Quezon City.

In 2005, he was accepted at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, where took up Certificate in Theater Arts, majoring in Performance Studies. He apprenticed as an actor and production staff under the university's college-based theater group, Dulaang UP.

In 2006, he joined the UP Wrestling Club and eventually became its president and decorated athlete. He won medals in various competitions sanctioned by the Wrestling Association of the Philippines, wherein he represented the UP Wrestling Club or the Quezon City Wrestling Team. In 2007, he won a silver medal for Quezon City during the Philippine Olympic FestivalNational Capital Region qualifying round.

He also competed in amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) as representative of S.P.R.A.W.L. - MMA Team. He logged not an 1-1 fight record: he lost his match in the 2007 URCC University and won in the 2009 S.P.R.A.W.L and BRAWL amateur MMA event.

He was also elected as the Deputy Grand Triskelion of the Tau Gamma Phi fraternity, UP Diliman chapter.

De Guzman auditioned and was later cast in the 2009 Cinemalaya film Last Supper Number 3. The independent film was where Direk Lauren Dyogi, business unit head of ABS-CBN, found him and asked to audition for Midnight Phantom. He passed the audition and starred as the best friend of Rafael Rosell who plays the title role.

He was cast in the new PHR series, Alyna and paired with his Midnight Phantom co-actor, Charee Pineda who has been claimed having chemistry by the fans.

His biggest break so far is playing the lead role as Gabriel Maglayon, originally played by actor Rico Yan, in ABS-CBN's 2011 remake of Mula Sa Puso.[1] Upon getting the role, De Guzman has proven that he is one of the most-promising young actors these days, as he also present a very good chemistry with the cast, especially with Lauren Young, who plays Via Pereira, his character's love interest in the series.

Now a contract artist of Star Magic, he plays the lead role of "Angelito" in Angelito: Batang Ama paired with Charee Pineda which started airing from November 2011.
