Australia’s Next Top Model crowns wrong winner!

During the live final of the sixth series of Australia’s Next Top Model the wrong girl got crowned winner! That must feel horrible!

Kelsey Martinovich had been crowned champion by public vote and was making her speech when presenter Sarah Murdoch interrupted her. While she shook her head and listened to her earpiece, Murdoch said: “I’m feeling sick about this, I’m soo sorry, this was a complete accident.” She then announced the real winner was 18-year-old Amanda Ware. “This happens when you have live TV, folks,” she said. “This is insane, insane, insane.”

The girl who was earlier crowned winner, Kelsey, appeared to take the news well, saying, “It’s OK, it’s an honest mistake,” as the presenter asked: “How could this happen?”

The presenter looked really distressed by the mix-up, who wouldn’t be! You just told a beautiful girl that she had won, and ten seconds later it appears that something went wrong, and you have to tell the girl that she did not win! I would go crazy if I had to tell that… It’s said for Kelsey I think, she was so happy!

After the show the presentor attempted to explain the mistake. “The lead kept changing, it was literally down to a couple of votes. It kept going back and forwards… and we ended up with Amanda as a winner.”

A good thing about this is that Kelsey, the girl who was told first that she was the winner, was awarded wit AUS$25,000 and a free trip to the US by a way of apology. That’s nice for her, but still a lot less then when she actually had won, because the real winner won an eight-page spread in women’s magazine Harpers Bazaar, a contract with Priscilla’s modelling agency, an AUS$25,000 Levi’s campaign, an AUS$20,000 cash prize, a new car and a trip to New York.

I think this was such a stupid mistake! What do you girls think about it?
