We spread all the entrants to the Boot Camp 2 Big Time Model Search out on a table and narrowed the list down to 10 finalists. It was a tough job! The voting begins on Saturday.

Today we announced the 10 finalists for our
Bootcamp 2 Big Time Model Search that we’re doing with Elmer Olsen Model Management. I want to personally thank everyone who took the time to answer the questions and send in their photos. We really enjoyed reading all your answers and so appreciated the care and attention you put into your application. Elmer—who has an exceptional eye—was so excited to see all the entrants. With eagle-like precision, he zeroed in on the young women who he thought had potential in the industry. It’s that same eye that spotted today’s runway stars like
Grace Mahary and
Dauphine McGee. It was a tough decision—as these contests always are—because all the young women who entered are so uniquely inspiring. I want to thank you again for taking a leap of faith. Your enthusiasm and positive outlook are commendable. I wish you every success. To the finalists, best of luck!
