The second cycle of Caribbean’s Next Top Model, sponsored by Flow, came to a nail-biting and exciting conclusion last week. After intense competitions and exciting challenges, Kittisha Doyle from Grenada impressed the judges with her charm, toned physique and her promise to represent the Caribbean, and proudly became the winner of Caribbean’s Next Top Model Cycle 2.
The Grenadian born model, who is nineteen and six feet tall, has been modelling for a number of years and began making her dreams a reality by signing with a modelling agency in Grenada where she was able to hone her skills and build her confidence. Doyle is strong-willed, joyful and spontaneous, and in her spare time she enjoys fishing, hiking, reading and writing. As winner of Caribbean’s Next Top Model Cycle 2, Doyle will be awarded US$25,000 in cash, an international modelling agency contract with Mint Model Management NY, a cover feature and editorial in SHE magazine, an iPhone with three months of free calls up to $500 USD per month, a digital painting by Tani Kunitake of Cyber Blue Productions, which will be featured in the graphic story book for the film ‘Cerulean’ by Tani Kunitake shot by Pedro Virgil Photography, and an invitation for a walk-on role in the film ‘ Cerulean ‘.
“Flow is extremely proud of Kittisha Doyle and we congratulate her on this early New Year’s gift, said John Reid, President of Flow. “The show brought a lot of excitement and competition, even among employees in the different islands that the models represented. We were especially happy to see the growth of the models from the first episode to the finale, and we wish all of the contestants a bright future as they continue to pursue their dreams.”
The entire cycle of Caribbean’s Next Top Model was aired on Flow TV on Monday nights as customers were able to watch the show five days in advance of Free to Air. Viewers can also access the show via Video on Demand and the Flow-to-Go App. Caribbean’s Next Top Model is produced by Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam and is a reality television competition based on the original production America’s Next Top Model, its format, licensed by CBS International. The series follows the stories of aspiring young women seeking to launch a career in the competitive world of modelling. Fitzwilliam hosted Caribbean’s Next Top Model, accompanied by fellow judges: international photographer, Pedro Virgil and Caribbean fashion expert, Richard Young. Over 20 finalists from across the Caribbean put their best foot forward on the catwalk to vie for the top spot in the competition. Casting calls were held in Barbados, Cayman, Jamaica and Trinidad, as well as online.
Wendy Fitzwilliam shared her sentiments about Cycle 2, stating, “When I think of the young ladies who came to this competition and their desire to become number one, the Caribbean’s Next Top Model, I am moved by their growth as young women, and how they have come into their own under our tutelage. But I am especially excited about Kittisha. Her development over the course of the cycle from a fledgling young beauty into a confident model is certainly impressive. Kittisha is like a diamond in the rough – she came in as a shy young woman with raw talent who was determined to learn at every step of the way. Her focus remained steadfast on improving her own performance, the ultimate weapon for success, in this competition, this industry and life. The level of confidence that she has developed and the knowledge garnered from this experience has certainly prepared her to take the world catwalk by storm.”
Congratulations to all of the participants and finalists of CNTM Cycle 2.
