We filmed the whole afternoon at the beach. It was so blasting hot and we were out in the sun practically the whole time. I get a tan in just 15 minutes usually, so you can imagine how brown I got just filming that day. Took this pic at KM8 just after filming. I went home a totally different colour from when I arrived that morning! And boy did it hurt!
The condensed version lost a lot of the tension and social dynamics that went on that day but I guess that's normal when you need to fit a whole afternoon's footage into half an hour.
I would have liked to have seen more of the audition footage... because honestly, it's damn entertaining. But after some thought, I think it was very cruel.
Imagine if one of those girls in the audition which people laughed at was your daughter, or girlfriend, or sister .... or you. How would that feel? :(
Does anyone deserve that sort of treatment (no matter how deluded or excessively confident they are) ?
Then again... it's inevitable, if it's entertaining... it'll make the cut on Tv. Just like on American Idol... I love watching the audition rounds because of the laughs I get from the bad auditions. *lowers head in shame*
Another thing that's inevitable is criticism. The girls are putting themselves up for public scrutiny.
This I fully understand, we have to after all be responsible for what we say and what we do. But I do wish people had more substance to their criticism rather than all out lashing and petty stabs.
It really makes my eyes roll when I hear/read people commenting on very nitpicky and trivial things like - Holly opens her eyes too big !
WTF? I'm not purposely forcing them to open wide, and when I talk, my face tends to be animated. It's just who I am, and it's not like I'm doing it on purpose to act cute or whatever you stupid cunts!
On the flip side to that, there are many who are supportive and have sent such kind messages and emails to me. Thank you all :)
I do think however... that I should have worn more make up. Face looked rather washed out without eyeshadow, lip colour and eyeliner etc.
We actually filmed the whole series in Aug/Sep last year. Now that I'm an ettusais brand ambassador (this year), I've actually become so much more make-up savvy and a bit more vain than I was last year. Not excessively though, but I definitely would have plastered on more colour on my face... rather than opt for au naturel look ... not flattering on Tv. :(
Oh well... it's all done. And not as if I looked hideous or what. (I hope. haha)
P/S- if any of my readers are able to upload the episode on youtube, do let me know as I'd like to link to it on my blog.
