The first event that I covered for the Humber Et Cetera, my school’s newspaper, was the Canada’s Next Top Model (CNTM) casting call for Cycle 3 in Toronto. The line of model hopefuls snaked throughout the mall as the girls tried out for a chance to become Canada’s Next Top Model.
I really have to tip my hat to the girls who came out because it takes a lot of courage to voluntarily allow yourself to be publicly scrutinized by casting judge Elmer Olsen and Richard Campbell of Elmer Olsen Model Management, one of the premier modeling agencies in Canada, as well as over a hundred spectators.
Well, about four months later the Cycle premier date and the judges have been announced.
TV personnality and host of Fashion Television Jeanne Beker, fashion everything and CNTM host and Executive Producer Jay Manuel, supermodel Yasmine Warsame and CNTM Creative Director Nolé Marin will be reprising their roles as judges of the show.
Celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz who has shot campaigns for MAC Cosmetics, Sean John and REEBOK will be joining the judges panel.
Cycle 3 of Canada’s Next Top Model will premier on Thursday May 26 at 8pm EST on CTV.
