The seventh cycle of Australia’s Next Top Model has almost come to an end — the last photo shoot in Dubai aired last night, and the live finale takes place tonight at the Opera House! Considering last year’s headline-making finale, which saw host Sarah Murdoch accidentally announcing the wrong winner after being fed the results through an earpiece, this time ’round Sarah will be handed an envelope with the winner’s name. As the decision rests with the fans, the result has the potential to go either way — Montana has shown her top model potential in the past few challenges; the judges have loved Liz’s look from the beginning; and Simone, despite the constant ‘commercial’ labels, has improved throughout the series, and could take it out if everyone loves her feisty personality. We asked Harper’s Bazaar editor Edwina McCann to weigh in with her pick, and she told us, “There is really only one option in terms of a Bazaar cover girl and I hope she wins because I think she will have a successful career beyond tonight’s finale.” (Who do you think she means?) Voting closes at the start of the finale, so tell me now — who do you think will win Australia’s Next Top Model 2011?
Australia’s Next Top Model airs at 7:30 p.m. on Fox8.
