This week’s “Asia’s Next Top Model” cycle 6 episode 4 was a tough one to watch for Malaysian fans. Many (including us) were sad to see Rubini Sambanthan get the chop from the judges.
Numerous fans took to social media to convey their sadness and best wishes to the Malaysian beauty. One of them happened to be fellow “Asia’s Next Top Model” alumni, Alicia Amin.
In her Instagram story, the “Alamatnya Cinta” actress talked about Rubini’s elimination from the reality competition. “Last night, Rubini got eliminated from ‘Asia’s Next Top Model’ but I think the whole lot of us who got eliminated in our seasons can tell you that it’s not the end. If anything, it’s the beginning. You’re awesome Rubini. We love you,” said Alicia.
In episode 4, the contestants were asked to pair up for a boxing photoshoot. Unfortunately, the judges felt that Rubini’s photo wasn’t up to par. Despite the disappointing outcome, the 27-year-old model held her head high and left on a positive note. She also took to Instagram to share a heartfelt post on why she joined “Top Model” in the first place.
