Show match-up is a perfect fit

BY pure coincidence the North Coast National Show Girl entrants fronted up to a day of judging and official dinners on Saturday wearing look-alike dresses.

And the feeling between the contestants was just as harmonious.

Friends and workmates, Brodie Beetson, of Hastings Point and Sara Curren, of Lismore, said they would be just as happy if the other won the Show Girl title this Thursday.

On Saturday the girls were grilled by judges on their local knowledge with questions on politics, agriculture, geography and local culture.

“It's about supporting the rural and agricultural sector, Louise Hayward, of Lismore said.

For Jess Gooley, of Coraki, being a show girl was a childhood dream.

“I used to show dairy cows and when I saw the show girls I wanted to be one of them,” she said.

More than 60 people turned up to the Show Girl dinner on Saturday, where entrants took to the stage to test their public speaking.

The winner of the North Coast National Show Girl competition will enter the zone final with Siobhan McNamara, who won the Casino Show Girl title.
