Episode 6 : Put Your Best Face Forward

The final three met Ethan & Charles to shoot their "Light & Bright" beauty shot, where they met last season's winner Nikki Udani. First up was Phoebe, whose natural enthusiasm shone through. While Anne once again started off with bland shots, she finally turned on the charm for a great delivery, while Meanne struggled with her being over-prepared. During panel, Phoebe once again shone with her blissful look and strong shot, as well as her strong film, while Anne delivered a passionate shot. Meanne, affected by her earlier performance, stumbled in her shoot. The judges believe that Meanne has failed to live up to her past performances, and Anne's passion was still questioned. Ultimately, Meanne joined Phoebe as the final two as Anne was eliminated.

Episode 5 : Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

This week, the final three were put to the test if they can sell high fashion wearing trash. The photo shoot took place at an empty warehouse in Las Pinas embodying paper, plastic and steel as their wardrobes accompanied by dramatic hair and makeup. At panel, all of the girls were praised for strong shots. The judges noted that this is Phoebe's best photograph to date and she received her first callout bagging the best picture of the week. Anne and Meanne on the other hand were equally praised as well. The judges agreed that this is a non-elimination round. Still three girls remain, who will be eliminated next week?

Episode 4 : Oh No You Didn't Girl!

For this week's photo shoot challenge, the girls were taken to a home studio to portray "Lady Assasins". Meanne turned the tables and delivered the best shot this week, Anne also did well. However Phoebe and Princess were placed in the bottom two - both for their mediocre shots. The judges perceived Princess's personality as being washed out and forgettable. Phoebe's photo and personality shone brighter because in the end, Princess gets the boot due to her inability to transfer her personality into a photo. The competition get's tighter and tougher. It's now down to the final 3. Meanne, Anne and Phoebe, who will get the next boot?

At panel, all the girls but Anne (who bagged the best photo of the week) get mixed reviews, with Jace being told she photographs very skinny, Meanne that she posed in a commercial way, Princess that she didn't step outside of the box and Phoebe who is worried about her poses which landed her in the bottom two along with Jace who was eliminated because the judges were disappointed over her uncalled attitude, despite producing strong photos.

Episode 2 : The Manang Project

On this week's episode, the modeltestants had to portray different kinds of renaissance "Manang's" on the woods. At the photo shoot the girls experienced difficulty getting into character, leaving all feeling vulnerable. At judging, Jace was commented for a stunning photo, though it was noted that it was essentially an accident, and that she required continual coaching from Ethan. Phoebe was told that she produced a photo that did her beauty justice. Mara was once again criticized for her lack of versatility, presence and appearance in person, and for looking too "flat" in her photo. Though she produced a good photo, the judges expressed disappointment for her inability to take instruction because she did not capture the correct theme; this put her in the bottom two with Anne, but with her third consecutive bottom two appearance, Mara was eliminated and Anne was given another chance.

The bottom two came down to Mara and Dorothy, where, despite Mara's poor performance on her last shoot, Dorothy was eliminated for having a weaker photo, versatility and presence.

Pilot Episode : The Glam Start

The girls meet at NBP Park for their first photo shoot and realize that Tatiana is missing. Ethan & Charles arrive and take them to a skating rink where it is revealed that Tatiana withdrew from the competition due to "personal reasons". Sarah, on the other hand who had been in the preliminary, is replacing her. At judging, Meanne, Phoebe, Jace, Anne and Dorothy are noted for their strong shots. Mara lands in the bottom two because of her lack of versatility, but it is Sarah's poor performance at the shoot and timid personality that gets her eliminated as the judges feel she is not making the most of her second chance.
