Lennox girl may be next top model

LET’S hear it for the local girl.

Lennox Head’s Kelsey Martinovich needs your vote to help her bring home the prize for being Australia’s Next Top Model.

Kelsey is one of three finalists in the Fox 8 TV show, because the judges on Tuesday night couldn’t choose between her and Victoria’s Sophie van den Akker and Queenslander Amanda Ware.

They’ve thrown it open to the public and, judging by the comments from some of the show’s 42,000 ‘friends’ on its Facebook site, she stands a pretty good chance when the votes are counted next Tuesday.

Kelsey is ‘the shorty’ in the race, at a mere 172 centimetres, and that’s caused a bit of controversy on the show, said her mum, Michelle.

“It’s her beauty and personality that have got her to the final,” Ms Martinovich said.

The 19-year-old hazel-eyed beauty was thrilled to make the final cut, Ms Martinovich said – but she has taken it in her stride.

Her mum is not so relaxed. She’s urging people on the Northern Rivers – indeed, the whole of NSW – to jump on their phones and get behind their girl.
