JAMS Top Model winners selected


    WITH 300 aspiring models coming from all over the Philippines, JAMS Top Model Philippines 2019, staged at the MOA Arena last January 28, is easily the fiercest modeling pageant thereabouts, where the entrants proudly raised the culture, traditions and tourism of their locales.

    This one-of-a-kind competition was divided into three groups: Category 1 for entrants 5-9 years old; Category 2 for entrants 10-15 years old and Category 3 for entrants 16-25 years old. The contestants paraded in spectacular festival costumes and Filipiniana formal attires before a panel of selectors that included, among others, Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados, Miss Asia Pacific International 2018 Sharif’s Akeel, and Miss Tourism International 2019-2020 Cyrille Payumo.

    At the end of the almost 4-hour show, the winners were finally selected: Yana Tarun of Isabela (Category 1), Arwin Santiago of Isabela (Category 2), and Hashley Limpo of Quezon Province (Category3).

    JAMS Top Model Philippines was conceived by the Team of JAMS Artist Production founded by Maricar Moina and Jojo Flores.
