The Top 12 – Sizzor Shak’s Next Top Model 2012

Thank you to everyone who voted in Round 1 of Sizzor Shak’s Next Top Model! We had thousands of votes pour in & we graciously thank you for your patience & for your participation! We couldn’t be more excited about how intense the voting got!

Out of the 42 girls who entered the competition, the 12 with the most votes at the end of the voting week are advancing to the next round, with one exception. In the fashion of American Idol, we have thrown an exciting twist into the mixture! The Shak Girls got to save someone! This is how we did it: each Shak Girl got to choose their 3 favorite contestants out of those who didn’t advance to the top 12, then we tallied up all of their votes, & that determined who the Shak Girls saved. So our top 12 just got a little addition!

Congratulations to those who have advanced & thank you so much to everyone who entered the competition!

The Following Contestants Will Advance to Round 2

The Next Round of Voting begins March 19th & ends March 25th! Best Wishes!
