South Africa: The Model Million$: ‘Go hot or go home'


It's a recipe that truly reflects the life of an internationally acclaimed supermodel - it's got the girls, the behind-the-scenes drama, betrayal, the money, the jet set suitcase lifestyle and of course reality TV at its best: The Model Million$ launches on Wednesday on SABC3. The winning model gets R1 million and viewers can win in the interactive competition - the big prize being $1 million (yes, dollars).

Hosted by supermodel sisters, Kerry and Tracy McGregor, presented by Anthony Oseyemi of Survivor Africa fame, and in one of the judges seats, the hilarious Cokey Falkow, this search plans to be SA's hottest reality series to ever hit international shores.

The Model Million$ series is the largest television production in South African history and follows amateur SA models on a 12 week journey as they compete to win R1 million in cash. These 15 hopefuls will battle it out in true model style, working on real advertising campaigns and shoots for various leading South African companies, dealing with real life issues in a TV world and meeting celebrities along the way.

The search comes with an interactive competition for all SABC3 viewers - a chance to win one million US Dollars in cash. Each week viewers will be challenged to predict which one of the 15 models will be eliminated at the end of that episode. Those who are correct in the majority of their predictions, throughout the series, will be in the running to win US$1 million in cash on New Year's Eve 2008.
