Filipino fans of the Asian version of the well-known Top Model franchise “Asia’s Next Top Model” celebrated after the country’s representative made it to the top 3 of the show’s current season.
Filipina-British model Adela-Mae Marshall was among the top 3 finalists in “Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6”, together with Taiwan’s Mia Sabathy and Thailand’s Dana Slosar.
Through an Instagram post, Marshall expressed her happiness and gratitude for making it far in the competition.
“LABAN PILIPINAS! Masaya ako na, sa wakas ay masasabi ko sa inyo’ng lahat na nagawa kong dalhin ang ating magandang bansa sa Top3 of #AsNTM6,” Marshall wrote.
She said that it was difficult for her to compete with the other models from different parts of Asia as they were all equally good, but she promised that she would do her best to win the Top Model title for the Philippines.
“Gusto kong pasalamatan ang lahat ng sumusuporta sa akin sa buong kumpetisyon. Hindi ko naisip na makakatanggap ako ng labis na suporta!” Marshall said.

LABAN PILIPINAS ?? Masaya ako na, sa wakas ay masasabi ko sa inyo’ng lahat na nagawa kong dalhin ang ati’ng magandang bansa sa Top 3 of #AsNTM6. Sa tingin ko, kayong lahat ay maaaring sabihin na hindi ko inaasahan na makamit ko ito sa episode na ito at ang aking mga kakumpetensya ay parehong magaling pero ang pangako ko ay subukan ang aking pinakamahusay upang lumaban para sa back-to-back win. Gusto kong pasalamatan ang lahat ng sumusuporta sa akin sa buong kumpetisyon. Hindi ko naisip na makakatanggap ako ng labis na suporta at nagpapasalamat ako ng marami. ? I am so happy to finally be able to tell you all that I was able to bring my beautiful country into the Top 3 of #AsNTM6 I think you may be able to tell that I didn’t think I would make it in this episode because both of my competitors were really strong but I will try my best to secure a back-to-back win for the Philippines. I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout the whole competition. I never thought I would receive this much support and I am so grateful for it all. #TeamAdela #PhilippinesOnTop #BeyondLimits
If Marshall wins, it will be a back-to-back victory for the Philippines after Filipino-German model Maureen Wroblewitz was hailed as the winner during the show’s fifth season.
Wroblewitz won a Subaru Impreza, a cover and fashion spread in Nylon Singapore, and a modeling contract with Storm Model Management in London.
