Miss Universe Becomes a Guest Judge?
Based on the post from Fashion Pulis, the show slated their shoot in Singapore. The posts featured several scenes featuring the 26-year-old Wurtzbach.
The Miss Universe 2015 stood alongside topless male contestants on what looks like a yacht. All of them sported some serious looks while a crew instructed them. In another photo, she sat among two other judges as they held pink placards with the words “Tough” and “Sweat” written on them.

As of now, there have been no updates as to when the said episode will air. ASNTM Season 5 just started few open cast events across Asia. Few of the key locations for the casting calls are in Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta.
Pia Wurtzbach Rumored as ASNTM Season 5 Host
In August, a Facebook post ignited rumors that Wurtzbach will host the upcoming season of Asia’s Next Top Model. The show is a spin-off of the recently concluded America’s Next Top Model starring Tyra Banks.
However, Miss Universe Talent Dept. Head Esther Swan debunked the rumors. She said in a statement that they did not receive any official offer from the show. Swan, on the other hand, added that having Wurtzbach on the show “would be great.”
If only the said rumor was true, she almost might become the third Filipina to host the said series. The first two beauties were supermodels Georgina Wilson and Joey Mead-King.
