Demelza wins Aus Next Top Model

The judges were divided between Alexandra Girdwood (left) and Demelza Reveley (right), but viewers backed Demelza.

The votes are in, Australia's next top model for 2008 is...Demelza. She picked on her hoursemates and was told she was to fat for the catwalk, but teenager Demelza Reveley has been crowned the winner for 2008.
The 16-year-old from Wollongong relied on the viewer's vote to win the Fox 8 reality show after the panel of fashionista
judges failed to reach a decsion amongst themselves.

The winner picked up a modelling contract with make-up king Napoleon Perdis, a spread in Australian Vogue and chance to strut their stuff on catwalks around the world.
Demelza had faced a storm of criticism for bullying a rival model earlier in the show, but she saw her standing soar when designer Alex Perry told her she needed to lose inches off her hips

But Byron Bay beauty Alamela Rowan, 17, who was pelted with water bombs, had a bucket of water tipped over her head and was subjected to other taunts and attacks by Demelza, said she shouldn't have been allowed to reach the final.
Alamela's dad Peter told Confidential that Demelza, the self-named "bitchketeer" should have been instantly removed. He said his daughter had been "gagged" and told she couldn't tell her story on a current affairs program about what she has called "one of the worst times of my life".
Meanwhile, fans of the reality modelling show would have noticed host Jodhi Meares missing from last night's live broadcast.
Jodhi, who was criticised for stumbling through last year's live final, opted to instead pre-record some segments..

Hmm what is happening to Australia's version of aus next top model?? i am personally not a fan as i believe this years contenders were not exactly, model, runway, high fashion material...but thats just my opinion...
