Georgina Wilson to appear on America's Next Top Model
British-Filipina model and host Georgina Wilson joins the roster of Filipinos who were featured in the hit US reality search “America’s Next Top Model” (ANTM).
Wilson posted on her Twitter account Wednesday that she will appear in the 17th cycle of the popular modeling show hosted and produced by top model Tyra Banks.
She said she “joined as a guest model/stylist,” representing the clothing line, Bench, which served as the clothing sponsor for the semi-finals of the current “all-star” competition that gathered the favorite finalists from the past ANTM seasons.
“I told the girls what to do for their semi-finals challenge,” Wilson said. “We shot it in Greece and I can’t wait for it to come out.”
The episode will air on Nov. 9 in the US and it will be shown in the Philippines on Nov. 14, Bench announced on its Facebook page.
Before Wilson’s stint, the popular model search had invited US-based Filipino designer Oliver Tolentino, whose gowns—made of abaca and piña—were featured in the “all-star” season.
Dubai-based Filipino designer Michael Cinco, whose line of recycled ‘couture’ had been already featured in Cycle 16 last year, will headline the Finals episode of the show.
Wilson tweeted that Cinco created the clothes for the Finals and that they were together during the Greece taping.
Lisa Damato, who is so far one of the remaining models in the show, had gotten acquainted with both Wilson and Cinco, and tweeted: “I love the Philippines! I want to go there!” - with Lian Buan, VVP, GMA News
