Thousands of hopefuls turn up over the two day process and the judges have to narrow it down after a rigorous selection takes place with just 10 male & 10 female potential models being selected. They are then put through an 8 week “model boot camp” where they receive instruction in all aspects of modelling, including techniques of walking the ramp alongside professional models, etiquette at photographic sessions, as well as how to keep fit and healthy – the focus being on functional training over the 8 weeks.
