Congratulations Maxtor Frisk and AriannaJasmine, Winners of the Mr. & Miss Model International 2016 Competition. Maxtor and Arianna came out on top and was crowned by MMI Owner & CEO Ava Jhamin in what was a very emotional Final event on February 27th.
What an amazing journey! The contestants worked hard and fought hard – from the initial walk, the baroque avant garde challenge, the trunk challenge, the famous pose off, the couples challenge, and the surprise challenge, to the final challenges (Mad Max, Swimwear and Formalwear). It was a very memorable, learning experience for everyone involved.
For the Final event the contestants showed off their battle scars in the Mad Max challenge to start things off, delivering impeccable style as each showcased their Mad Max-inspired costumes. The set transported the audience into a Mad Max movie scene that had battered vehicles, piles of old tires, downed wires and desert shrubs littered everywhere. Host Falbala Fairey set the scene for what was truly a battle to the end.
Guests were then teleported to the beach where the contestants showcased their sexy beachwear. Eyes were guided over the waves to the center of the ocean’s stage where one by one the contestants seemed to walk on water as they posed and performed for the judges and the audience. Things got pretty hot, and some might say pretty scary watching each contestant carefully balance themselves to avoid falling into the killer whale’s domain.
After the sun and fun on the beach, everyone joined the contestants in a beautifully decorated garden for the final walk of the event. There the contestants brought elegance to a whole new level as they paraded through the garden in their Tres Beau Formalwear. It’s safe to say that it was a bitter sweet moment for each of them as they looked back on their journey – the friends they made, the things they learned and…an experience that was like no other.
While everyone waited Kaleb Avedon entertained us with his super sultry voice and songs of love. Falbala continued the entertainment with soothing music and games before the results came in. MMI 2015 winners Adonis Hansome and Lady Falina Katze-Elmer (FalinaKatze) graced the stage to offer thank you’s, well wishes and some advice to the contestants. It was a touching moment and one of lasting memories for both as they prepared to pass the reigns on to the new winners.
