Grabe na talaga ang Brazilian invasion sa Manila ah!
They are literally robbing Pinoy models of work! Maganda naman ang lahi natin, bakit mga foreigner pa ang kinukuha?
My friend who owns a modeling agency constantly whines about these Brazilians.
These models pala are chaka sa home country nila, so di sila mabenta doon, so dito na lang sila raraket. Kahit na chaka sila sa Brazil, dito sa Pinas sobrang pinag aagawan pa sila!
So Pinas no? Settling for rejects at latak!
Hindi lang yan, these Brazilian models daw dive their prices, as in dive to death ito, para they're sure to land the job! They're thinking kasi in pakyaw terms, so ok na din kung madaming jobs na not so high ang pay. So wala na tuloy jobs ang mga models in Manila!
My friend told me a story of another agent friend of his whose model then had an almost sure endorsement agreement with SM. Their contract was worth P60,000. Just when the agent was calling in to ask when the contract signing will be, he's told that the deal wasn't pushing through. And he eventually found out that SM opted for a Brazilian model for only P15,000.
Sa mga VTR for TV ads daw, when it's a beauty brand, the Pinoys don't even bother to attend the VTR, kasi they're so sure na foreigner na naman ang makakakuha. And totoo naman.
Ang may kasalanan niyan yung mga agencies na nagpapasok ng foreigners dito. I know the brands opt for these foreigners para may world class leveling ang brand nila, pero if walang nakakapasok na foreigner models here, wala silang choice diba?
And nakakainis pa diyan, halos lahat sila mga walang working permits! Dapat lahat sila ipa-deport!
And get this, there's this Brazilian guy model daw who recently put up his own agency here in Manila! The agency is 99% Brazilians only. Nakakaloka!
The agency is called Chameleon Models (yuck).
I checked out their website, and nakakatawa. You know how modeling agency websites are, below the thumbnails of each model is indicated whether the model is in town or not. May mga nakita ako na nakalagay "DEPORTED"! Bwahahahahaha!
This has really got to stop. It's so Pinoy to not support the locals.
Hay kaya hindi tayo umaasenso eh.
