Tis’ probably the longest title of any of my blog entries. Anyways, it’s such a delight to feature one of my favorite Top Model winners ever! My shorty diva, Melissa werking it in the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia as part of her winnings in the eight series of Australia’s Next Top Model.
I was right all along! Yay! I’m so happy! Melissa Juratowich won the title after beating out Shanali Martin who came in second and third placer Nyadak “Duckie” Thot during the finale held tonight becoming the eight winner of Australia’s Next Top Model succeeding Montana Cox!
Wow! She’s officially the shortest winner of Australia’s Next Top Model!
Duckie, Shanali, Melissa and Abbie
This was actually a very strong final four – it feels like the competition was whittled down to the best girls to battled it out until the end but this being a pre-finale episode, we still need to see one of them go and sadly it had to be…
Abbie Weir still werked it BIG time!
This was from one of their challenge shoots this episode, the Mermaid photoshoot challenge. I thought Abby nailed this one but she just really fell short over all according to the judges. I really thought that she had this in the bag after getting first call out last week! It’s nice, though, that she went home with this amazing shot. She’ll be fine…
Duckie’s Alien Shot
3rd Call out went to Duckie – I love Duckie from the very start but if I’m being honest, I would have Abbie than her at the finale.
2nd Call out went to Melissa – that face is one in a million! Let’s face it, this girl’s gonna have a big modeling career after this! Paging IMG!!!
and the Photo of the Season was awarded to…
Photo Of The Season?
I’m not exactly in agreement with the judges calling Shanali’s photo the best in the series. I thought it was still Melissa’s 50’s housewife that was most memorable and just pure enigmatic. We have to give it to Shanali though for being the most consistent girl this year – is she destined successor of Queen Montana?
And then there were six. Here are the remaining six girls still in the running of becoming Australia’s Next Top Model.
It was just like yesterday when I don’t see Abbie as a model until she proved me wrong week after week – now she may be heading to win this season’s title! It’s gonna be a toss between her, Melissa and Shanali IMO.
To be honest, I do not like this photo of Shanali. It’s doing nothing for me. The photo lacks the story and charisma! Cmon’ girl, it’s the homestretch!
Melissa is perfection here! I really thought that she would be getting her third FCO of the season, but alas – a frontrunner but slug it out until the end! werk it girl!
Duckie’s probably the most consistent girl in the competition. This girl can do no wrong and that is what’s wrong with her. She’s too calculated that it has become too boring. I’m guessing a final 3 at max for her. ‘still love you boo!
Sabotage alert. From her fab photo last week to this. It’s no wonder she went home.
I’m not a fan of Jade since the beginning so I don’t mind her leaving with Dajana.
Now we only have four remaining girls to battle it out next week! At this stage of the competition, who do you think should really win based solely in their body of work and modeling potential?
Dajana looking so editorial and finally landing the numero uno! ‘told ya guys!
Jade is lookin’ like a winner but she doesn’t strike me a “TOP MODEL”
Abbie knows what she’s doing!
The Oh So Pretty Shanali sailing through
This isn’t too original at all Duckie girl!
Wow! Melissa at the bottom two yet again!
Shanali finally landing the TOP SPOT!
Is this the start of Shanali domination? Like what I’ve said about her last week’s amazing photo, she could very well be the winner of this season. Abbie and Melissa – you gotta bring it girls!
Trailing not so far behind is this girl whom I think is Shanali’s biggest competition in all aspect. This girl is a PROPER model!
Dajana’s still not giving me that WOW moment. girl’ step it up!
Now, what a disappointment. This is not a good shot at all from Duckie. What went wrong boo?
A lagging frontrunner. Melissa needs to catch up big time pre-final 4!
This has to be Shannon’s best shot to date! #cameltoealert
Old Jade’s back. BORING.
A well-deserved elimination. Oops!

A smile worh to be called first from Duckie!
Duckie’s one of my favorite girls in the competion and I’m happy that she finally won photo of the week!
She’s the client choice and is now the face of Colgate Optic White Ad Campaign! Good job Jade! Do I like this photo? Nah.
Dajana’s looking great here and her smile doesn’t look force at all. I told you guys, she’s got something!
Shanali reminds me of the exotic beauty of Sam back in Cycle 4. Shanali may very well be the winner of this cycle if she continue to produce amazing shot like this!
This is just awkward. Shannon needs to go next. She has no variety.
Bottom two with Shannon next week please!
Abbie’s becoming a force in the competition. She’s slowly gunning her prowess to conquer this cycle! Slowly but surely…
This isn’t a good shot of Melissa at all and do you guys think they’re sabotaging her photos? Methink so.
I was never a fan of Madeline until this shot came out. Here, I see a beautiful commercial / high fashion model and I think it’s more decent than Shannon. Too little too late for her? Sadly, yes. So long Miss Madeline!

This was the episode where Taylah got disqualified. It was a similarly shocking call-outs as the two frontrunners in the competition (Duckie and Melissa) were at the bottom and could’ve been eliminated! #OMG!
Jade and Madeline got the first call out!
Well, I guess the makeover works in their favor! It’s not my favorite shot at all and I still find them a little boring but hey, judges knows best!
Ashley outshining Melissa?
This isn’t a good photo at all and Ashley’s rocking this one so hard that yes – she outshone Melissa here!
Shanali and Taylah
This isn’t good at all. They could’ve kick Shanali out as well.
Dajana And Shannon
This was a pretty decent shot and I thought Dajana’s working it big time here!
My favorite shot from this episode! Abbie and Duckie!
I totally love this shot and I thought it’s one of the best this season! Abbie’s growing on me and Duckie is continuously dominating the competition. It was a joke that Duckie’s at the bottom. Cmon’

Melissa has been a favorite since Day 1 and in this episode, she annihilated everyone with this oh-so-fiercing 50’s housewife shot!
Resident judge Alex Perry stated: “I reckon that’s probably the best photo I’ve ever seen in this competition – of any series, this is special” And that is saying something!
Madeline bores me to death to be honest. It’s nice enough but I’m not really digging it.
This is Shanali’s best shot to date but I still got to see proofs that she’d last until the end. And so far, I aint seeing any.
Duckie reminds me of Viola Davis here. I don’t like this pic at all. Sorry boo
Ashley is the only one that can rival Melissa’s. She’s beautiful here but there’s a little bit of disconnect which I couldn’t place.
This was Taylah’s face when she got FCO last week. Girl, ever heard of versatility?
She’s Jade. NEXT!
I actually loving this shot of Brooke. I just wished it was a full body shot though…I’m loving the expression in her eyes!
This is my second favorite shot next to Melissa and Brooke. I wonder why it was called so low! Go Shannon!
This isn’t a fitting shot for April. It looks cheap, tbh
Dajana’s face is just fantastic but she doesn’t know how to use it. I hope she get to stay longer for a chance to showcase her beauty!
Wow! This is pretty boring, no wonder she’s in the bottom. I thought she should’ve left the competition this week…ugh. Wrong decision from the judges!
Rhiannon reaching the final 13! I’m loving this shot of her and I thought it isnt the worst in the bunch! Tsk! So long RiRi!
