She came to Singapore as a wide-eyed 17 year old.
And Evelyn Leckie had to deal with giant squids, frog-catching,
Her sweet nature earned her the thumbs up from most viewers and the votes from
Her World readers (click to see video). But what of her “posing” skills,
considering this is a modelling competition?
|At the Zouk finale (click here to see photo gallery) on 22nd August, we finally got to see
Evelyn and the rest upclose.
All 10 girls strutted their stuff in different segments.
Christabel did her thing in the runway challenge with a walk that
will soon bring her to London Fashion Week. And after hearing her
honest confession about her body insecurities on the show,
Kathlene’s pose-off in a bikini with some very hot male models
made us feel like proud parents. Was this really the body they
criticised for having baby fat? Take that, judges!
In the end, Evelyn took away the great prizes, including a $10,000
FEVO Mastercard which she assures us, she’ll spend on her education.
And that goes to show she really deserved to win.
|CIARA SCHMALFELD: MIS-UNDERSTOOD?
Ciara was singled out on the show as an outcast. But as we found out, there was more to her story than what we saw.
|On comments made by the other girls on the show
I haven’t watched the show but I’ve heard some of the comments made by the other girls, mostly through one of my girl friends. From what I’ve seen and heard, they weren’t uncalled for. I’m pretty okay with them.
|On why she under-performed
I had a lot of issues going on back home (in the US) that I didn’t tell people about. My friends were like ‘you were very outgoing, and you just stopped.’ And I agree – I was outgoing at first but things just started wearing me out. I did want to do the competition, I wanted to make it far, but I don’t think I gave 110% because my confidence was shot. I was emotionally, mentally and physically drained. So if I could go back and do it all over again now, I think I would do a better job. I feel a lot better and healthier and a lot of things have been settled back home.
