“It’s about more than a look. It’s about being the right girl in the right place, at the right time.
She’s got to have attitude, business savvy, and be ready to take on the world.
She’s picture-perfect and she knows how to use it.”
12 women have been given the chance of a lifetime. Every week a challenge will be put forward, and the one girl that has the drive and determination, the street smarts and the right attitude, will be given the tools to take over the media world and an amazing grand prize that will catapult her into the limelight.
Our judges, Kojo Baffoe and Tumi Morake, know what it takes to make it in Mzansi’s tough media world. They will be guiding the ladies through the 12 week challenge and every week one girl will be eliminated from the show, until we find the girl that proves “She’s The One”.
