Backstage at FHM Models 2010


Curious about what goes on behind the scenes at the annual Singapore FHM Girl Next Door competition?

This year, I was lucky enough to have the experience of being one of the finalists at the Singapore FHM Models 2010 competition, and this is my story. 

There were seven finalists at the competition this year who were eyeing on the $2,500 top prize as well as a chance to appear in the frontcover of the FHM Singapore August’s issue.

After a grueling few months of competition, it finally ended at the Siloso beach on the 26th of June.

The winner crowned is Jasmine Li, but I was lucky enough to be awarded the title of 1st runner up, walking away with $1,000 cash!


Before the finals, I was invited to Mediacorp to film for Entertainment 5. It was my first live interview despite my acting experience in dramas and movies, so I was a little nervous during the recording!

Following the filming, we had a live interview at 98.7fm with the Muttons. It was my first time inside a radio station, and it was surprisingly cozy looking, not like an office at all!

The live interview was a lot of fun and the most amusing part was having my friends texting me to tell me that they could hear me on-air!


One of my favorite moments of this whole competition was the yoghurt wrestling! It was held at the Shack at Tanjong Beach during their closing down party.

The breakfast meal concoction of yoghurt, cereal, fruit loops and chocolate bits looked yucky, but was actually quite fun when you're pushed in!

This is the picture of me, Valarie Yeo, Me, Simone Julia, and Jasmine Li wrestling in the yoghurt.


I know everyone likes gossip! So here are some juicy details about the finalists of the competition. Sorry guys, nothing scandalous! We are all really good friends!

  • Jasmine is like our mama san as she is always the one who takes care of us. And it's also mainly because she is the eldest among us!

  • Sharmaine, is our Miss Chatter Box. I enjoy listening to her talk and I admire the way she is despite what happened to her sister.

  • Channelle, the tallest girl among us, is always bubbly and is someone who loves her hair to the max!

  • Krislynn is an extremely doting girlfriend. I only see her with her boyfriend and no one else! It's adorable, really.

  • Ziyi is sporty girl and she teaches inline skating! Do look out for her at east coast park!

  • Shelia is actually Indonesian, and had to fly in and out of Singapore for the FHM competition. What's surprising is that she's a news reporter in Indonesia!
