After bagging the title role in GMA’s new teleserye “Machete”, Aljur Abrenica (Starmometer’s Sexiest Man in the Philippines for 2009) has just been named “Best Asian Model” at the 2011 Asia Model Festival Awards (AMFA) which is being held annually in Korea.
This year’s event was held yesterday, January 21, at the JW Marriott Hotel in Seoul, South Korea and was participated by 13 Asian countries including the Philippines.
Singer-actress Francheska Farr and former Survivor Philippines castaway Suzuki Sadatsugu were also the Philippine bets this year. According to a report on Abante Online, Frencheska won the Female Model Award.
StarStruck V’s Ultimate Female Survivor Sarah Lahbati was supposed to compete in the event but because of her busy schedules shooting her afternoon soap “Little Star,” she was not able to join.
Last year, their fellow Kapuso stars Rhian Ramos and Victor Aliwalas received the Female and Male Model Star awards respectively.
