Ralph loves our Brittni
MEET Coffs Harbour’s very own calendar girl.
Brittni Rippon, a 19-year-old waitress, has just beaten 40 of the nation’s hottest swimwear models to become one of the Top 15 Ralph Swimwear Models of the Year for 2010.
“It was absolutely awesome,” Ms Rippon said yesterday. “I certainly didn’t expect it – this was my first competition I’d entered and I was competing against a lot of girls who were very experienced.”
After a week of press interviews, dance routines and catwalk struts, Ms Rippon was announced among the frontrunners in the finale on Saturday night
“It was such an amazing experience – it was a really full-on week but I had a lot of fun,” she said. “Most of the girls were very nice.”
Ms Rippon will now be featured in the 2011 Ralph Swimwear Calendar and has already been offered a number of shoots.
“I have to go back to Sydney in September for the calendar launch and I’ve been asked to do some other work which is pretty exciting,” she said.
The tally to determine the top three is still under way. If successful, Ms Rippon will share in $50,000 in cash and prizes, as well as feature on the cover of the 2011 calendar.
