MTV is giving internet stars the chance to bring their unique styles and perspectives into the world of television.
This year, the MTV VJ Hunt 2010 is looking for undiscovered talents straight out of the web. Wut?! But isn't MTV gone, you may be asking. Let’s just put it this way: don’t find MTV; MTV will find you.

With no call entries, no lengthy auditions, and no moulded personalities on this year’s VJ search, MTV Asia has short listed ten dazzling individuals from across Southeast Asia as candidates in the MTV VJ Hunt 2010. (Click here to find out who they are.)

The rise of social networking, online blogs and videos, anyone who is techie enough can catapult themselves into internet stardom. It is a lead that MTV followed with this year's VJ Hunt.

To join, you only need to  link your website, social networking page, and the like to MTV's site. It's not the most ingenious way, we know, but MTV figured this to be a fresh, honest, and clever way of finding the next MTV superVJ.

While the VJ search’s new concept is sparking a lot of interest, MTV will not settle on web hits alone.

Wits, brains, beauty, timing, public demand, and most definitely talent count.

In short, just like these five former foxes of MTV Asia.

Donita Rose
Among the MTV Asia VJs listed here, sweet Donita Rose remains a familiar face today.

After appearing in a string of wholesome films and local sitcoms from the early 1990s, this one-time FHM cover babe (check out the August 2001 issue, baby!) would make her comeback when she became an MTV VJ earlier this decade.

We all knew about Donita’s sweet Film-Am demeanor in her old movies, but being a VJ showcased her wacky side as well.

She, along with fellow talents KC Montero, Belinda Panelo, and Sarah Meier headlined MTV Philippines to mainstream success several years back.

Where she is now: now a family woman, Donita continues to show off her hosting skills as part of the Umagang Kay Ganda gang. She also remains to be one of advertising’s favorite daughters, endorsing brands even as a mother.

Next: Giselle Toengi!
