Mossimo Bikini Summit (MBS) is back again to grace the country’s beaches. For its 9th year, MBS presents itself with Model Supremacy—the battle that will dictate the new face that will reign supreme in showbiz, fashion and pageantry circuit.
This year, it is back on Boracay Island where it was staged in 2002 until 2004, and then in Manila in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and Batangas in 2011.
Prior to the finals night on April 8, 2017 at the Henann Regency Resort and Spa, pocket shows will be held in Davao, Cebu, Bohol, Pangasinan, Palawan and Manila showcasing the designs by local designers as well as the latest collection from global brand Mossimo.
These pocket shows will play an integral part in choosing the semi-finalists in the finals night when one male and female are proclaimed as grand champions. The titleholders will win P250,000 each, the first runners-up P150,000 each and P100,000 each for the second runners-up. Winners will also receive other valuable gifts from sponsors.
Thirty-two official candidates will be chosen at screenings on Nov. 26 to 27 in Cebu City; Dec. 3 to 4 in Davao City; and January 14 to 15 and 21 to 22, in the National Capital Region. A stage discipline and modeling workshop will be given to the finalists to be mentored by America’s Next Top Model Cycle 22 candidate Stefano Churchill and Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 first runner-up, Monika Sta. Maria.
