Amanda Ware speaks out after Australia’s Next Top Model FAIL
Amanda Ware gives Nova the lowdown on how host Sarah Murdoch managed to name the wrong winner of Australia’s Next Top Model.
[videolink]106993[/videolink]The eventual winner of the ten-week reality series told Hughesy and Kate this morning she first saw a teleprompter saying she had won despite having just heard Sarah Murdoch say Kelsey Martinovich was the winner.
Amanda said the stage manager then held up a sign to alert the host to the monumental stuff up.
So how did it happen? Well, Amanda said Sarah was having trouble hearing what the producers were telling her in her earpiece and that they hadn’t told her the wrong person – Sarah had misheard what they said.
“She couldn’t hear what was going on and I think in a split instance she heard (the producers say) Kelsey but they must have been talking about our stage position, and then bam,” Amanda said.
