Snejana pronounce her name in a more americanized way, her name in her native language is pronounced a bit different with a softer j and a.
like here: 00:05 or 00:10 or 02:50 or 04:10 but this also isn't the best example.

^No, I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be "Fraya" in both languages.

L-ew Wun
Ming Sii
Shoo P-ey Tchin

Can't read chinese characters but if you can find the correct ping ying for their names is the best way to go.
Ping Ying for is Liú Wén, so pronounce the accents but raising your voice a bit like a question. Can't find ping ying for the other chinese models' names but if you do this video might help with the intonations of the vowels. He hand gestures are back to front to the tones: ¯ ´ ˇ ` If there is a dot,˙, then its its a strong emphasis of that character.

(google translation in English : http://tinyurl.com/3ku5kxx
but you can't search words here, have to go back to the original Chinese page.)

the pronunciation in this site is pretty accurate.

here are the Chinese characters of the models' name, you can use the upper dictionary to hear how to pronounce them.

Sun Fei Fei : 孫菲菲
Liu Wen : 劉雯
Ming Xi : 明奚 (but her actual Chinese name is 奚夢瑤)
Qin Shu Pei :秦書培
He Sui : 何穗
Xiao Wen Ju : 雎曉雯

That's how my Vietnamese friend told me to pronounce them.
