One of the Top 15 was, Tina Jackson.
Miss Ashley also made the Top 15.
So did she.
Valarie did too.
One of the special guests of the event was video chick Shannon of R Kelly and Usher's music video, "Same Girl."
Some of the Top 15 on stage along with Mocha and Black Men Magazine editor Marcus Balssingame looking on.
After the Top 15 were chosen, then Mocha and Blassingame deliberated again to pick the Top Three(which I hear was a tooth and nail discussion) . One of the three was Miss LAura (who was of the three girls I took a pic of outside the window at the Model Search)
Here are the Top Three--Laura, Tina and Jasmine with Marcus in a pose.
Here is another shot of the Top Three. Who do you think won?
I Like this pic. Its very telling. Shannon with Mocha and Blassingame. Shannon annoucned the winner.
Another shot of Shannon ready to announce the winner.
The winner was....Miss Jessica, who was very shocked and humbled at the same time(Some of the crowd members were also booing which was foul). Blassigame asked her how she felt of winning.
Here is the winner again in her sexy pose. She received a layout in the Black Men Magazine, all expense trip to L.a. or NYC for a photo shoot with $500 spending money, $500 Gift Certificate to Club Denim Clothing Store. The other 14 finalists were not losers per se. They have a chance to enter their pics to the magazine for a possiblity of receiving a photo shoot as well.
