What is fast growing into one of the biggest (and prestigious) modelling competitions in the country, the Top Model SA 2018 Grand Finale took place at the Carnival City - Big Top Arena. And are we impressed? Yes!
Top Model SA is part of Top Model Worldwide, which is one of the leading international, professional model search competitions, with a proven history of discovering some of the best new model talent there is. (Remember guys, this is not a pageant. It is a modeling competition.)
So back to the Grand Finale. So thousands of guests attended the incredible production led by the renowned Choreographer & Producer: Willie Venter. That sure is one thing that I must say, even with a few missed cues & models crossing paths at the wrong moment, the production was done incredibly well. Adding to that, you do need to know that most of 80 contestants have never walked on a ramp before, nevermind doing that in front of thousands of people & whilst it is being broadcast worldwide live via AfriLive.
Melissa Magiera (22) from Cape Town & Alexander Jenkinson (18) from Cullinan walked away with the title of Top Model SA 2018 winners.
"Always believe in yourself, no matter what. Hard work & determination will always get you what you want." - Melissa Magiera
"The harder I worked, the luckier I got. It's still so unreal." - Alexander Jenkinson
"It took a lot of self discipline & hard work. But it all paid off. This is life changing." - Jayme Scott
The Fresh Face category is for the ladies who don't qualify for the international model height requirements. And this year, the stunner; Jayme Scott (19) from Roodepoort walked away with the title.
Congratulations to the entire Top Model South Africa team on what was truly a wonderful event. Check out #TMSA18 on social media to see who was posting what!
