Thirty women selected for 2018 Total Makeover Challenge

Program now underway, with winner to be announced in May

The 2018 Total Makeover Challenge is now underway.

The challenge, presented by Shape Your World Society and presenting sponsors MSA Ford and Shoppers, is held in three segments over the next four months.

The first segment, running from now until Feb. 27, involves 30 women taking part in the fitness, health, personal growth, development and beauty makeover.

At the end of the segment, the public is invited to vote online for their favourite challenger, with public voting and votes from a judges’ panel counting as 50 per cent of the value for choosing the 15 challengers who move on to the next round.

The other 50 per cent is based on weight loss, inch loss, program participation, attitude, leadership skills, and other mini challenges.

Voting for the first segment takes place from Feb. 22 to 28 at

The second segment runs for six weeks, from Feb. 28 to April 10. Voting takes place April 5 to 11, after which the Top 5 challengers will be determined.

The winner will be chosen after the end of segment three, which runs from April 11 to May 22 with votes cast from May 10 to 16.

The winner receives a getaway trip for two, a gym membership and a photo shoot with hair and makeup.

The 30 women selected for the 2018 Total Makeover Challenge are: Carly Allen, Ashley Bakstad, Lisa Bjornson, Tammy Boyd, Allison Cathcart, Sheryl Conklin, Jamie Coxon, Kim Dean, Analeece Durant, Debbi Grace, Cheryl Grant, Ruth Greenly, Gina Kaushakis, Karen Keras, Tonia MacKay, Rita Mackenzie, Tamara Marcynuik, Tracy Martens, Josee Perron, Chantel Peterson, Joanne Proche, Megan Ranger, Tammy Schaufelberger, Ann Marie Schenderling, Monica Skeels, Melissa Valentine, Joy Vandevelde, Gail Wightman and Tracy Wilton.
