Singapore, 15 June 2010 – On 19 June, 10 hunks and 10 babes will vie for the ultimate “Seventeen Summer Babe” and “Seventeen Summer Hunk” titles at the Seventeen Summer Beach Party at Wavehouse @ Sentosa. This is the biggest line-up yet for this annual signature event organised by Seventeen, a publication of SPH Magazines Pte Ltd.
Callouts for contestants began in March, through Seventeen magazine, its website and social media such as Facebook. The response from readers was amazing. “We received countless entries,” said Sasha Gonzales, editor of Seventeen. “Readers sent us their pictures in the hope of being part of Seventeen’s Summer Babe and Hunk line-up, and many nominated their friends, boyfriends, brothers, classmates and colleagues. The response was certainly very encouraging – it was great to see that level of enthusiasm and support. Our initial plan was to have just five female and five male finalists, but due to the overwhelming response, we doubled those numbers.”
In April, the Seventeen team narrowed the few hundred entries down to 10 girls and 10 guys, and the 20 finalists were photographed for a special fashion spread in the June 2010 issue. Readers could also vote for their favourite contestant online, at www.seventeen.com.sg.
At the event, the 20 Summer Babes and Hunks will show off their fit and toned physiques in trendy swimwear and beachwear. There will also be a Q and A session, so guests can find out a bit more about the contestants. Judges will be on the lookout for physical appeal, poise and charm.
The final two winners – Seventeen Summer Babe and Seventeen Summer Hunk – will win prizes from the sponsors. The event promises to be an afternoon of non-stop fun in the sun, with stage games, water activities and a special musical performance by one of the finalists from Singapore Idol 2009, Syltra Lee.
The Seventeen Summer Beach Party is sponsored by Billabong, Coppertone, Garnier, Harajuku, L’Oreal Studioline, Maybelline and Wavehouse @ Sentosa.
