Sedia not a Top Model finalist


Share post:

THE CARIBBEAN’S Next Top Model series has lost Barbadian Sedia Jackman who was eliminated in episode 6. Next week the first winner of the competition will be crowned as it’s down to the final two, Stephany Francisca and Treveen Stewart.
In the mid-season premiere of CNTM, the seven finalists participated in the most trying challenges yet. The competition began as the girls met up with stylist, fashion designer and image consultant, Peter Elias, who informed them that they would be going on their first go-sees equipped with a map and a Samsung Galaxy tab, courtesy of bmobile.  
The finalists met with Trinidad and Tobago’s premiere fashion designers, Nigel Eastman, Heather Jones, Shaun Griffith-Perez and Kaj, and gave their best impressions to gain the designers’ favour.
As the girls returned to the model apartment, they were met by celebrity judge Wendy Fitzwilliam and Elias, who shocked them with a surprise elimination.  Lisa was sent home for not creating a lasting impression with the designers and the remaining Top Model hopefuls were off to their photo shoot challenge with Helen Pipins, photographer Calvin French and some gorgeous male models.
The theme throughout the shoot was Amerindian influenced with body art by James Paul and costumes by Delia Alleyne. French made sure he intimidated the girls to evoke the indigenous people of the Caribbean.  At deliberation, Wendy commented that everyone had made considerable growth in the competition. However, only five of the finalists could continue on to compete to be on top. The judges chose Trudy-Lee as the best photo of the week and Sedia and Stephany were the bottom two.
For Sedia, the judges felt that there was inconsistency in her images and in Stephany’s case, there was a consensus that it looked like she was trying too hard to pose in her photos. Sedia was eliminated and left everyone with a final bow and goodbye. (NS)
