The fi­nal 18 were se­lected from a pool of 159. Be­fore be­ing short­listed, the MTZ team con­ducted a life­style and crim­i­nal audit. Some were found to have crim­i­nal records, forc­ing the team to drop them in­stantly.

“We’d have loved to take the girls on a fa­mil­iari­sa­tion tour be­fore they take to the ramp on Novem­ber 25, but un­for­tu­nately time is not our side as they were in­ter­rupted by ex­ams.

“How­ever, we’ll take them to Vic Falls after the pageant and South Africa as well for a photo shoot. Even those who’ll have been evicted will get to tour with oth­ers as ev­ery­one is a win­ner to us.”
