Footage Of Australia’s Next Top Model Stuff Up Right Here

For those who did not see the debacle that was the Australia’s Next Top Model final – here it is.

In a nutshell Kelsey was announced the winner, the fireworks went off, a thank you speech given and then some “Oh no’s” from host Sarah Murdoch, and then Amanda was announced the winner.

Sarah looked flustered but then recovered, and props to Kelsey for being so gracious about it.

UPDATE: This just in from the press release –

“Tonight we saw the perils of live TV. At the time of the result announcement there was a miscommunication between the broadcast truck and the stage,” said Jamie Campbell, FOXTEL Director of Publicity.

“Sarah handled what was a difficult situation with utmost professionalism and grace.  Amanda and Kelsey were neck and neck in the voting all night.

“We apologise to Kelsey for the error, and FOXTEL will be sending her to New York as well as awarding her $25,000 as a prize,” he said.

Also I forgot to mention that Jessica won fan favourite , which was $5000.

Can anyone tell me why the harpers bazaar website announced congradulations to Amanda at 4.51pm this afternoon, some 5 hours before the “live” announcement

Kimberley – That would appear to be another stuff up, it is amazing it did not leak out. Or does no one go onto that website.

there are many comments on the harpers bazaar site.

Oh my goodness!! They knew before? Surely this means the voting was worthless?? I can’t wait to see the outcome of this monumental stuff up! Expensive perhaps?

i know there are a lot worse stuff happening in the world but we should be able to rely on the small stuff without manipulation and greed getting in the way

Didn’t anyone notice during the original announcement of the winner (see early part of video footage) that on the large screen behind the stage, there was a large Harpers Bazaar magazine front cover featuring AMANDA.

Oh my God I just got it I was so tired last night. Wow that is big if it is true.

i have it recorded and went over it. when kelsey was announced the winner, her pic was at the back but as she was giving her speech the cover changed to kelsey – a while before sarah corrected herself

12 Gillian { 09.29.10 at 9:20 am }

If this was all true then why would Claudia be so adamant that she wanted Kelsey as the winner? I’m sure they would all be toeing the Harpers Bazaar line, whatever that was. I thought they actually wanted Amanda for the cover.

Is the HB website timestamp on Australian time? From the pic it looks like a blog format so could be set on another time zone.

Gillian – Editor of Harpers on Today show and not happy she said they had wanted Kelsey.

15 Gillian { 09.29.10 at 11:38 am }

@ RR: Then I think the public vote did count then & the image of Amanda on the website was a genuine mistake. I really think that Harpers Bazaar editorial staff should receive media training.

Regardless of whether they were forced into this partnership by their advertising department, they should learn to be more gracious and kind to the eventual winner.

At the of the day, Amanda has more high-end appeal and is more of a fit for the Harpers Bazaar brand than Kelsey I believe.
