The Miss Multiverse VIC Finalists competed for their spot in the National Finals in a new and exciting reality TV show and model contest.
Tensions and stakes were high for the Miss Multiverse VIC Finalists. From interviews to tests, photo shoots and Urban Quests, the seven models had a busy day.
Miss Multiverse Australia is a new reality TV show and model contest that is launching in Australia this year after great success in America and South America over the last few years. The search is on for Australia’s most multifaceted model that is not only beautiful on the outside but has a good education, interpersonal skills, social skills, emotional intelligence, catwalk and photographic skills and is also fit and healthy.
The day started with a tough and formal interview facing the guess judges, Sonalika Pradhan and her Bollywood actor Vishwajeet Pradhan from the designers brand, Vitamin by Sonalika, who is also a sponsor of the show and will provide the gowns for the final night awards show.
Sonalika Pradhan: “The competition was tough and all the girls are beautiful in their own way. We are proud to know that these model will be wearing our dresses”.
Following the interviews, the Miss Multiverse VIC Finalists were handed an unexpected written test who saw their faces turn upside down. Thankfully the lunch that followed at the Pancake Parlour in Melbourne Central was enough to get their positive moods back on track.
The swimwear photo shoot in the chilled winter temperatures truly tested their endurance. Although some were not too happy about parading in the cold, others accepted their fate as professional models.
The highlight of the day was definitely the 2-team race through the city. It led the models to follow ques and clues, solving problems and ultimately competing for the fastest time against the opposing team.
The Miss Multiverse VIC Finalists were tested on teamwork, leadership, sportsmanship, problem solving skills, and much more. The team at Urban Quest who organised this race did a fantastic job at putting together a race. It was not only very enjoyable, but also bring out the best qualities in each member of the team. The race ended in an informal award ceremony, organised by the Urban Quest team.
Serge Zubaryev from Urban Quest says: “As expected, some girls stood out as leaders and some as followers, but everyone showed great sportsmanship and positive attitude”.
The day ended in an elimination round and sadly someone was sent home. Four other contestants were disqualified for turning up late or not turning up at all. The Miss Multiverse Australian National Finalists will be announced on 1 June 2017.
National Director and Producer, Yolandi Franken says: “The judging team and the Urban Quest team did a fantastic job in helping us identify the best and worst qualities of the girls”.
