We all like bit of competition that everyone can join in but not all competitions are open to everyone. Well when I say ‘not open’ I mean, they don’t expect you to enter if you don’t meet a certain criteria and you would not expect an over weight ginger male to enter a model competition. Well that is exactly what has happened and yep you guested it, he is winning.
The international clothing company Next have once again started their search for the UK’s next model 2011.
‘The culmination of this year’s model search is going to be bigger and better than ever. The online public vote at next.co.uk/model will decide the Top 250 – all of whom will be invited to London on Friday 29 July, 2011 for a special one-day course at Next’s Runway Academy.
The lucky hopefuls will meet industry experts who will offer invaluable advice on all aspects of modelling, while our panel of judges will choose a Top 50 shortlist to return for the following day’s fabulous, fun-packed, live Grand Final on Saturday 30 July, 2011.
Remember: we’ll have TWO overall winners. Their prizes? Each will enjoy a £2,000 shopping spree at Next, the chance to star in a photo shoot for Next and a special introduction to leading model agency, Storm.’
On the date of posting this we have 25 days to go and Roland from Belfast, Antrim is currently in first place.
Now I don’t know about you but I would love to see this man win the competition as this would make a nice change to all those super hunky type men winning and I’d also like to find out what Next will do.
Let it be known though, that I have nothing against Next as a company as I am often in my local store (which is not a small one) buying clothing for my children but I have yet to find a shirt, T-shirt or even trousers that would fit my ample frame and Roland looks a lot bigger than me.
Michael, last years male winner is of course one of those hunky good looking guys that you always see advertising clothes and on catwalks (well not that I have been to to many of those).
But why don’t you vote for Roland and see if we can’t change the worlds perception of models.
