Hello! I’m pretty sure a lot of you have heard of the recent happening thing going on in town recently! Yes, it’s the Sunsilk Academy Fantasia, reality singing competition! I have the privilege to attend their press conference where they revealed the final 14 contestants. The 14 will be living together under one roof for the whole process of the show where they will undergo training etc. Then they will battle it out every Saturday, where 1 will be eliminated every single week. There’s 7 girls and 7 guys and one of them will emerged as the final winner who will walk away with a 2 years contract with Ocean Butterflies.
Coming from all walks of life, we have students, executives, property agent among the 14. And now I will present to you, the top 14 contestants.
The girls! In clockwise direction, we have Vee(1), Natalie(3), Hui Xian(2), Zhi Lin(5), Chloe(6), Jessie(7) and Fiona(8).
The one who stood out to me was Natalie for first impression wise. We shall see as times goes, which other girls will impress me more. xD
Here’s the guys! In clockwise direction, we have Jun Yang(8), Zhang Chi(9), Kenneth(10), Phil(11), Irwin(12), Guang Li(13) and ET(14).
Two of them caught my attention, and they are Phil and Irwin. Phil was from the UK but he spoke quite fluent Chinese which is rather impressive. Irwin has the sunshine boy look and a very cheerful smile.
And that’s the 14 contestant! Can’t wait to see them battle it on on the weekly concerts happening every Saturday! I’ll be attending several of the concerts and is super excited to hear them live!
Took a photo with Pei Fen, who’s hosting the press conference. XD
I also took a photo with Joe Tsai, who will be hosting the Saturdays’ Concerts.
Us bloggers who attended the press conference were given time to interview the contestants. I only managed to speak to 5 of the guys as I was rushing off to somewhere else. >< So I’ve managed to speak with Irwin, Guang Li, Kenneth, Phil and ET. From the short session I had with them, I can see that all of them are really working hard for their dreams. Of course, it was good that all of them had support from their family to pursue this chance for a shot at fulfilling their dreams.
As they will be under 18 hours of surveillance everyday, they did mentioned that they will be aware of that and control their actions rather than behaving like they will at home. However, they did also say that with time and getting used to, they will definitely be more relaxed and then slowly showing their relaxed selves on cameras.
Also, speaking about the possibilities of romance among the male and female contestants, they did expressed that there might be sparkles somewhere somehow as they are single, and living under one roof.
I’m pretty sure we will see friendships forged among the contestants as they get to know each other more and maybe some chemical reactions too. 😛
Starhub also came out with a mobile app which enables us to look through the details of the contestants, photo and videos updates on the contest and even mini games. We can even have the convenience of voting for your favorite contestant through the app.
I wish all 14 of them best of luck and I’m pretty such this 10 weeks will be an awesome and unforgettable journey for them all.
