The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The sec­ond cy­cle of Caribbean’s Next Top Model, spon­sored by Flow, came to a nail-bit­ing and ex­cit­ing con­clu­sion last week. Af­ter in­tense com­pe­ti­tions and ex­cit­ing chal­lenges, Kit­tisha Doyle from Gre­nada im­pressed the judges with her charm, toned physique and her prom­ise to rep­re­sent the Caribbean, and proudly be­came the win­ner of Caribbean’s Next Top Model Cy­cle 2.

The Gre­na­dian born model, who is nine­teen and six feet tall, has been mod­el­ling for a num­ber of years and be­gan making her dreams a re­al­ity by sign­ing with a mod­el­ling agency in Gre­nada where she was able to hone her skills and build her con­fi­dence. Doyle is strong-willed, joy­ful and spon­ta­neous, and in her spare time she en­joys fish­ing, hik­ing, read­ing and writ­ing. As win­ner of Caribbean’s Next Top Model Cy­cle 2, Doyle will be awarded US$25,000 in cash, an in­ter­na­tional mod­el­ling agency con­tract with Mint Model Man­age­ment NY, a cover fea­ture and ed­i­to­rial in SHE mag­a­zine, an iPhone with three months of free calls up to $500 USD per month, a dig­i­tal paint­ing by Tani Ku­ni­take of Cy­ber Blue Pro­duc­tions, which will be fea­tured in the graphic story book for the film ‘Cerulean’ by Tani Ku­ni­take shot by Pe­dro Vir­gil Pho­tog­ra­phy, and an in­vi­ta­tion for a walk-on role in the film ‘ Cerulean ‘.

“Flow is ex­tremely proud of Kit­tisha Doyle and we con­grat­u­late her on this early New Year’s gift, said John Reid, Pres­i­dent of Flow. “The show brought a lot of ex­cite­ment and com­pe­ti­tion, even among employees in the dif­fer­ent is­lands that the mod­els rep­re­sented. We were es­pe­cially happy to see the growth of the mod­els from the first episode to the fi­nale, and we wish all of the con­tes­tants a bright fu­ture as they con­tinue to pursue their dreams.”

The en­tire cy­cle of Caribbean’s Next Top Model was aired on Flow TV on Mon­day nights as cus­tomers were able to watch the show five days in ad­vance of Free to Air. View­ers can also ac­cess the show via Video on De­mand and the Flow-to-Go App.

Caribbean’s Next Top Model is pro­duced by Miss Uni­verse 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam and is a re­al­ity tele­vi­sion com­pe­ti­tion based on the orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion Amer­ica’s Next Top Model, its for­mat, li­censed by CBS In­ter­na­tional. The se­ries fol­lows the sto­ries of as­pir­ing young women seek­ing to launch a ca­reer in the com­pet­i­tive world of mod­el­ling. Fitzwilliam hosted Caribbean’s Next Top Model, ac­com­pa­nied by fel­low judges: in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­pher, Pe­dro Vir­gil and Caribbean fash­ion ex­pert, Richard Young. Over 20 fi­nal­ists from across the Caribbean put their best foot for­ward on the cat­walk to vie for the top spot in the com­pe­ti­tion. Cast­ing calls were held in Bar­ba­dos, Cay­man, Ja­maica and Trinidad, as well as on­line.

Wendy Fitzwilliam shared her sen­ti­ments about Cy­cle 2, stat­ing, “When I think of the young ladies who came to this com­pe­ti­tion and their de­sire to be­come num­ber one, the Caribbean’s Next Top Model, I am moved by their growth as young women, and how they have come into their own un­der our tute­lage. But I am es­pe­cially ex­cited about Kit­tisha. Her de­vel­op­ment over the course of the cy­cle from a fledg­ling young beauty into a con­fi­dent model is cer­tainly im­pres­sive. Kit­tisha is like a di­a­mond in the rough - she came in as a shy young woman with raw tal­ent who was de­ter­mined to learn at ev­ery step of the way. Her fo­cus re­mained stead­fast on im­prov­ing her own per­for­mance, the ul­ti­mate weapon for suc­cess, in this com­pe­ti­tion, this in­dus­try and life. The level of con­fi­dence that she has de­vel­oped and the knowl­edge gar­nered from this ex­pe­ri­ence has cer­tainly pre­pared her to take the world cat­walk by storm.”

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all of the par­tic­i­pants and fi­nal­ists of CNTM Cy­cle 2.
