Filipina-British model, VJ, and Filipino clothing brand Bench endorser Georgina Wilson will be featured on the reality hit show America’s Next Top Model: All Stars today, November 9, 2011 (US TIME). I saw this news this afternoon when I had my “wee wee break” from my sleep via Twitter (thanks to my Mom and my Boyfriend’s RT), and now, its one of the top trending topics for today.
Georgina posted on her Twitter account that she will be appearing on the ANTM All Stars episode as a guest model and stylist, and will be sharing her expertise to the semi-finalist. The episode was shot in Greece where the contestant will have their “Go-See” and “Final Runway” challenges. She said that Bench was tapped as the clothing sponsor for the episode where the contestants of the show wore Bench Body underwear for their challenge.
I’ve been watching the 17th season over the Internet during weekends. But for those of you who can’t, ANTM All Stars is currently airing on ETC channel, Mondays at 8:00-9:00 PM, with replays on Thursdays at 9:00 – 10:00 PM and Sundays at 7:00 – 8:00 PM. The said Georgina Wilson episode will be shown on November 14 on ETC.
In the past, other Pinoys were featured on the show like Filipino Fashion designers Oliver Tolentino and Michael Cinco. I’m sure that this event will boost Bench’s sales and popularity even more.
For me, the high ratings of the show here in Manila paved the way for Pinoy designers and brands to be featured in the show. I’m proud of Bench and Georgina for making it internationally. This is truly a milestone in Philippine Fashion. I hope that this is only the beginning.
