Mega Fashion Crew episode 5

So I finally got to watch Mega Fashion Crew again on ETC last night at 7pm after weeks of not being home both on Saturday and Sunday. The episode started with the very beautiful Sari Yap doing the introduction. After the intro, Meryll Yan and Suki Salvador revealed the challenge to the contenders and I must admit that it was a great challenge… again, another first for Philippine Fashion TV! I was very happy with that… Though I liked how it brought out the best and the worst out of the remaining contestants, I was really frustrated with Niko’s Attitude, I mean yes I have to admit that he was right-on when he said that a model should be able to handle the frustrations of a photographer but… and this is a big BUT, it doesn’t mean you have to always be that way when you don’t get what you want on set… as a professional, you should be able to handle not only the pressure but the detours during a shoot… If you’re so great then you should be able to work with what you’ve got and be able to produce a great shot… it’s like a tango of visuals and emotions that you have to work harmoniously with to get that shot… and he didn’t get that…

Moving on… Though I liked the challenge, I still had problem with the audio, at some points it was great but at some points I really couldn’t hear anything at all and I’m pretty sure the problem is not with my TV. One reason to say that the problem wasn’t my TV is because they had subtitles… I.E. they knew how bad the audio was… I just wish they had like lapels or talked louder… I also wish that if they couldn’t do anything about the sounds that they’d put full-on subtitles… I know it’s not easy but what use would it be to watch if I can’t understand a single thing…

Overall, I think it was still wonderful to watch, I especially liked the teams and collaboration of Aldrich’s team and Jav’s team… It was really a photo to behold :D not because Aldrich is my church-mate but because they really did show world class photography…

Elimination came and I was so sad because I didn’t think Phoebe did such a horrible job and she was one of the people I was rooting for throughout the competition, Clarence, Lyka, Strawberry and Christine were also eliminated… Also found out by this point that two of the other contenders I supported have been eliminated already from previous episodes (Kuya Mycke Arcano and ate Tin Umali). I really can’t say much about everything because it’s only my second time to watch an episode…

All I can say is this: “I am sure that these contenders have given it their best, after all, Having a spot in Mega’s fashion powerhouse isn’t something you’d take lightly, even just to get in would be a great deal of heartbreaks and endurance. I saw their passion, I saw their work ethics and definitely these contenders have a heart for the industry… can I blame them? What I can tell the people now who have gotten eliminated is that sometimes, it’s not a ‘no’ it’s just a not now. I’m sure all of you will go far because you’ve set on stone not only your names but also your hearts…”

I’ll continue to support all of you, the best way I can, writing about you guys because I know somehow, a little part of you guys will always be with me. Keep pushing forward! :D
