1. Alyssa Cole
I'm originally from small town Pietermaritzburg in KZN and currently reside in the beautiful Cape Town, coastal babies always go back to their roots...
Cape Town stole my heart and opened doors into the Model industry being part of Boss Models running on my 3rd year as a full time model which I feel very blessed by.
I believe in setting short and long term goals one of those which is so important to me is an education, Im a graduate with a Bachelors in Communication science and Business management.
I chose this field because I love working with people from psychology, marketing , PR it's been an exciting study which I throughly enjoyed. I am quite the book worm with a fun exciting side being the fashion/ entertainment industry and travel.
Being a Model was my way of doing the two things I love which is fashion and entertaining which allows me the opportunity to travel - modelling is more like a story and unlocking characters tapping into a fantasy.
I love challenges and that "always wanting to know more" kind of person.
Being in the industry opens opportunities of meeting all sorts of people from people you've looked up to, hoping to be one day, to the individuals behind the scenes with so much to teach you and developing friendships with individuals from every corner of the world opens your eyes to the bigger world and forever inspiring a greater goal and achieving more.
I love my Job and it doesn't stop there. After my Gap period I plan on chasing my other aspirations I'll be working on my Post grad and working towards a 2nd qualification in another field I'm passionate about which entails the business of fashion.
Knowledge is Power.

4. Samantha Bianca Pascoe
My name is Samantha Pascoe, I’m 20 years old and Johannesburg, South Africa is where I am from. I’m outgoing, love people and love laughing (where do you think I get my abs from). I love fashion and my style icons include Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Victoria Beckham. I love reading and writing and I plan to write an autobiography of my own one day. My passion is animals and horse riding and I would like to become a veterinary nurse in the next three years. I have studied events management which I love because I’m able to work with people and there is a variety in the jobs that are given. I have worked as an au pair for the past two years and currently am still one this year. The exercise I love most is walking and running because it allows me to clear my mind and soothe my soul. I have always wanted to be a model and will always work my hardest to reach my goal. I’m able to speak bits of Afrikaans as well as Zulu and have been nicknamed Muhle (beautiful). I love to learn new things and believe that life should be simplistic and happy because it’s the only way you are going to make it through in the end. One of my favourite sayings are “I will run in the sun and walk in the rain.” I would love to be a brand ambassador for Veet South Africa because I feel that I will be the perfect fit and will do my best to promote the products and Veet as a company as a whole. I thank the Veet team for choosing me as a Top 10 contestant and I’m excited for all the challenges and tasks ahead.

6. Odirile Sepeng
I was born and raised in the capital city of South Africa, Pretoria, where I completed my matric year in 2011. I am currently a full time student in Johannesburg, studying towards my Bcom Law degree. Having worked with an initiative that aims to grow and empower the youth, I am particularly passionate about the empowerment of young people and women. I feel equally strongly about visual art because it's more of a spiritual experience. It allows me to paint and draw that which moves as I see it and hope it connect with those who view it. I am a vibrant, light hearted and whimsical young lady full of life and an eye for unique special things. I love to work out and really enjoy the outdoors. I like to immerse myself with sport-related activities and spending quality time with my family and friends.

9. Drey-Andra Otto
My name is Drey-Andra Otto and I'm 20 years old. I'm a down to earth farm girl who can walk bare foot in the sand, ride a horse or even drive a truck. But as soon as I put my high heels on I transform into a glamour girl because a girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.
I wanted to be on stage since I can remember and always loved being in front of the camera, even if it was just for a selfie. I've also been doing modelling since the age of six, as well as sport like gymnastics, dancing, netball and athletics. Other than sport I also took part in school debates, acting classes and concerts.
Ive participated in several performing arts competitions like Eisteddfod, South African Championships and World Championships held in Los Angeles, America. During these competitions I won several titles and awards. First i won triple thread award for highest score in three categories, acting dancing and modelling. I've won overall model a few times and in Los Angeles at the World Championships I won Grand Champion model of the world.
In 2011 i was crowned Miss Teen Namibia and had the opportunity to go to Houston Texas in America to participate in the Miss Teen World competition where I reached the top 10.
As Miss Teen I was part of several charity fund raising events and had to organize and host some of these events.
I'm currently a student at the North West University of Potchestroom. Where I study BA Communication/Media while I'm doing a diploma in acting at the ADK academy.
My biggest dream is to pursue my modelling and acting career, while I'm studying to become a journalist, TV/radio presenter.
You only live once but if you do it right.....Once is enough.
Spending quality time with my Family and friends is worth every second. To me love, respect and good morals is great characteristics of a Christian.
I'm an outdoor girl and adrenaline junkie, the reason why I want to explore and travel world. I haven't been everywhere but it's on my list! Anything adventures......in front of the camera or on stage is definitely my thing! To me negative situations is a challenge, therefore I will always take what I've got, how ever little and do something with it.
