What a night, what a night! As I write this the competition, which started some five months ago, is over but the "After Party has just begun... it is Saturday Club Classics after all!
Over 100 applications received, over 70 auditions over two days, 25 finalists whittled down to 17... tonight was the grand final. A judging panel of six included the likes of former England striker Teddy Sheringham, TOWIE's Chloe Sims and our very own home grown April Banbury. Of course a lineup like this plus 17 finalists with huge support, the night was always going to be a sell.
So on to the competition, three rounds for the girls to impress the judges; Eco Dress Round, Sportwear Round and the Evening Gown Round. Martin Bell, our Host and Entertainer for the evening introduced each finalist to our judging panel and guests.
After deliberation from the judges we were down to the final 10; Amber, Georgia, Amy, Abigail, Rachel, Laura West, Chloe, Paisley, Millie and finally Ellie. It was then on to the mini awards for the evening. The winners:
- Miss Publicity - Amy Levick
- Miss Charity - Amy Levick
- Miss Photogenic - Georgia Barthaud
- Miss Popularity - Abigail Clarke
It was break, and boy did we need one. As I gathered my bearings I took the time to look around at the Centre and I couldn't help but to be amazed that we, TopGolf, are holding such an event, after all, 6 years ago we were just your 'upscale driving range'. Well if anyone wanted clarification of what TopGolf is all about, the last 18 months should have told you all you needed to know, and if you were still not sold, then tonight most certainly told you what we're about. Completely and utterly unique in every way. Our concept, is amazing, the game itself is compelling, the TopGolf team are superb, and as for our entertainment? First class!Everyone had gathered breathe and it was time to announce the winners...
- 3rd place - Millie Coates
- 2nd place - Georgia Barthaud
- ... and the winner, Miss Essex 2012 is... Amber Zakrsewski
Congratulations Amber, we are absolutely delighted for you!!I guess it leaves me to say just one more thing... Miss Essex 2013, anyone?
