MALAYSIA CALENDAR MODEL SEARCH CONCLUDED ON 19 NOVEMBER 2011 AT G6, THE HOT CLUB ON THE 6TH FLOOR OF THE GARDENS MALL NEXT TO MIDVALLEY.
UNLIKE HOTTEST HUNKS CALENDAR SEARCH, MALAYSIA CALENDAR MODEL SEARCH WAS NOT RESTRICTED TO 12 MEN BUT ALSO INCLUDED WOMEN AS ADELICIOUS IS NIT SEXIST!
"WE NEED 6 GUYS AND 6 GALS FOR OUR 2012 CALENDAR AS I SEE NO REASON TO RESTRICT THE MODELS TO EITHER MEN OR WOMEN. BOTH WOULD BE BEST, DON'T YOU THINK?" ASKS ADRIAN WINSON, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF ADELICIOUS EVENTS AND MODEL MANAGEMENT AGENCY WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO BE ONE OF THE PREVIOUS YEAR'S HOTTEST HUNKS AND IS THE CURRENT MR SOUTHEAST ASIA 2011. "THE PHOTOS OF THE 6 MEN AND 6 WOMEN HAVE JUST BEEN TAKEN TWO DAYS AGO AT GOLDEN PALM TREE RESORT AT SEPANG GOLD COAST AND THE CALENDARS WILL BE ON SALE SOMETIME IN DECEMBER SO MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR COPY!"
THE SEMI WAS PRESENTED AT SUNGAI WANG PLAZA, MALAYSIA'S MOST POPULAR AND YOUTH-CENTRIC SHOPPING MALL ON 11.11.11 AND THE FINALS WAS HELD AT G6 CLUB ON 18 NOVEMBER WHICH SAW A NEAR FULL HOUSE AS FANS, FRIENDS, ADMIRERS AND FAMILY MEMBERS FLOCKED INTO G6 TO SUPPORT THEIR CANDIDATES.
UNLIKE HOTTEST HUNKS WHICH WAS ORGANISED BY NEW ICON FOR MEN WHICH IS MALAYSIA'S TOP AND MOST AUTHORITATIVE CHINESE MEN'S MAGAZINE, MALAYSIA CALENDAR MODELS SEARCH WAS CONDUCTED IN ENGLISH WHEREAS HOTTEST HUNKS WAS IN MANDARIN MOSTLY SINCE THEIRS WAS A CHINESE MEN'S EVENT.
MALAYSIA CALENDAR MODELS SEARCH WELCOMES ALL APPLICANTS PROVIDED THEY ARE MALAYSIAN AND BETWEEN 18 AND 35 YEARS OLD WHICH MEANS KEE HUA CHEE CAN JUST ABOUT MAKE IT BY THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH.
Continues Adrian Winson, "They should be a minimum height of 5 ft 5 inches and have good or interesting or unusual facial features, good physique and confidence on stage and presence in front of the camera. As this is not a model contest, height is not top priority since it involved photography either inside a studio under controlled conditions or outdoor shooting at Golden Palm Tree Resort in Sepang Gold Coast where the water villas are built on stilts and fan out like the fronds of a palm tree similar to the ones in Dubai.
"However, height is always an advantage whether you are a commercial or catwalk model," noted Adrian Winson. "An interesting face is important as this contest will result in 2012 calendar but you don't need a classically beautiful or handsome face as this is not a traditional beauty contest. A face that catches attention due to striking features is more important than a vapid face. The winner must also have great physique, poise and posture! Of these, the most important is a great body that is well proportioned and pleasing to the eye as everything is balanced."
Many youngsters must have dreamed of appearing in a well publicised and prestigious calendar as hundreds applied and 55 were short-listed for the first elimination round. For the grand finals, only 11 guys and 11 gals made it.
The judging criteria was Appearance (25%), Physique (25%), Stage Presence (25%) and Poise (25%). Each finalist appeared 5 times on stage in day wear, gym gear, smart attire and of course underwear, the most anticipated segment!
The guys wore Pistol Pete and the gals donned House of Dresses and for swimwear, appeared in bikinis with or without sarong. The more daring appeared just in bikini while most wore a sarong. They preened, pouted, pirouetted and postured provocatively to a very appreciative audience who responded with rapturous clapping and wolf whistle from both male and female guests!
The divine dozen were Edison, Wen Ng, Yvonne, Chia Wun, Joelene, Isabelle, Jasmin, Chris, Arthur Lee, Cindy Li Ann, Leo Leong and Sina. Each will have a page in the 12-page calendar, their claim to eternal fame and something to show their grandchildren when they become old, grey, immobile, unattractive and probably very fat.
Of course all 12 are supposed to on par with each other and none is theoretically supposed to be better than the rest. But like in communism, one is more equal than others and so there was one Best Male Calendar Model and one Best Female Calendar Model!
Each of the 12 winners had to strut for a final time to determine who would be the best of the best so to speak. Arthur Lee sensually and partially removed his shirt to reveal his rock solid abs which he had already shown to maximum effect earlier. Cindy Li Ann shot out one sexy leg from a slit from her gown. Unsurprisingly, both were declared Best Male and Best Female Calendar Models!
The 2 top winners won prizes worth RM 16,000 each while the remaining ten won prizes worth RM 12,000, including a night's stay at Golden Palm Resort at Sepang Gold Coast worth RM 1,500 as they luxuriated in a deluxe water villa. These luxurious villas stand on stilts above the Straits of Malacca with the villas fanning out like the fronds of the palm tree similar to the Palm Jumeira, Palm, Jebel Ali and Palm Diera in Dubai.
Adelicious Entertainment, an events management and promotions company will be selling the calendar in December so make sure you get your copy!
