Host and head judge

“My hope for th­ese girls is that they have long and varied ca­reers that are all-en­com­pass­ing – they’re able to do com­mer­cial, cat­walk, editorials, and ei­ther model long-term or move into other things. To be able to cre­ate that plat­form for them and help them reach their full po­ten­tial is amaz­ing.”

JOEY MEAD KING

Model men­tor

“We have a lot of top cal­iber fash­ion pro­fes­sion­als, which is very ex­cit­ing even for us as judges to have them here and to have them help guide and cri­tique the girls. And there’ll be a lot of chal­lenges and photo shoots that

Asia has not seen be­fore. It re­ally is more

than ex­cit­ing.”

ADAM WIL­LIAMS

Move­ment coach

“There is so much to look out for this sea­son. Per­son­ally, I’m look­ing for­ward to the au­di­ence get­ting a chance to see how far th­ese girls have come. They’ve worked so hard and were ex­cel­lent in tak­ing di­rec­tion. My ad­vice to our young model hope­fuls on how to be on top? Be nice to Adam Wil­liams!”

MIKE ROSEN­THAL

Res­i­dent pho­tog­ra­pher

“My favourite part is watch­ing the girls evolve. Some of them started re­ally strong and then fell out, oth­ers seemed to be hope­less at first and then just found a whole new strength. It’s re­ally nice, it’s ex­tremely grat­i­fy­ing, and at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.”
