The Girl with Satellite Mind

It's been few days after the show, and still negative comments are everywhere. There are on model's fanpages, they are on the reality show pages, they are even on all platforms and commenting to all the people who are connected to show. Sometimes I wonder what these people (especially the Filipino) are thinking when they write all sorts of hate comments on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook pages just to spread and trying to make people agree on the "injustice" they feel that has been showed on a reality tv show.

First thing is, your comments doesn't change any fact of who the winner is. From audience point of view, you wanted your country's contestants win. Yes, who doesn't? I sincerely root for my friend my country's representative to win because this means a lot to her, means a lot to her family, people who believing in her all along, and to prove all those who look down on her by our own fashion industry how wrong they are. While you guys are helping locals to be in the scene, we, have to constantly struggle and fight to be in the scene. But that doesn't mean that we're have the right to bash the winner of a reality tv show even the winner is not who we're believing in for. So deal with it.

Secondly, you can go on whining how the show lost a viewer how bad the winner is but you, is just a sore real life loser who's doing all the "talking" behind a computer screen. In real life, who are you? Are you somebody in the fashion industry who can make comments bout how a model should look like pose like? Are you a fashion magazine editor, a designer, a booker, a professional model to judge who is beautiful who is ugly who deserve to win who deserve to be in the fashion world? No. Maybe you're a secondary schoolgirl, a working white collar, an unemployed person who sits around all day doing nothing, a college student on his/her final project, a bald and fat uncle, a model-wannabe but all you do is only taking selfies with your phone and so on. You, sadly to say, is a nobody in the industry who can say someone is ugly where some of you is so bad looking in real life that you wouldn't dare to use your own original/unedited/unfiltered photos as a display pic on Facebook. And yet, you got the guts to call someone ugly?

Thirdly, you don't know what happened behind the scenes, yes, so am I. I don't know what really happened in between the girls of the show because none of us were there. Get the idea? But people who's in the industry, the production team, the judges saw what and who they wanted throughout the show, and picked their choice. Where classic model beauty is everywhere, have you ever thought that what fashion industry needs is totally different from your ideal kind of beauty? You can say this contestant or that contestant is more beautiful than the winner, but is it a beautiful face that the high fashion scene wants?

Lastly, to my dear baby girl who deserves more than all these, there's one quote that struck me when I woke up this morning...

“The secret to modeling is not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.”
― Karl Lagerfeld

Yes, and you, the winner, have the face and looks people can identify in a second. People remember you, see how dearly people are remembering you even after the show, people just can't forget you, you have the power to keep people talking bout you, because your looks are so intense that it just engraved into their mind and can't get you out of their head. Hater is just another form of admiring someone in a distorted way. They're obsessed with you but their confused lil mind is telling them that they hate you.

We all know how good you are in the industry, in real life as a person, as a friend, never let these untrue story bout you pull you down. You did very, very well throughout the show, we are so proud of you that we shed tears and shared the joy you've brought to us upon your winning. You're the true blue winner, and there's no doubt bout that. I wish all the luck to you, and remember, we love and support you no matter what.
