The top 15 challengers in the Total Makeover Challenge have been chosen, and public voting begins soon to select the final five.
The 2019 challenge, presented by Shape Your World Society and presenting sponsors MSA Ford and Shoppers, started with 29 contestants back in February.
Challengers participate in three segments that focus on fitness, health, personal growth, development and beauty makeover. After each segment, voting determines those who move on to the next round.
Public voting and votes from a judges’ panel count as 50 per cent of the value for choosing the challengers who move on to the next round.
The other 50 per cent is based on program participation, attitude, leadership skills, weight loss and inch loss in addition to other mini challenges taking place throughout the segment.
The first segment ran until Feb. 27, and 15 challengers were selected to move on to the next round.
The second segment runs from March 3 to April 16. Voting runs April 4 to 10, after which the top five challengers will be determined.
The winner will be chosen after the end of segment three, which runs from April 17 to May 21, with votes cast from May 9 to 15.
The Top 15 challengers selected are: Shianne Hiebert, Shawna Gibbs, Megan Briggs, Courtney Gibbs, Dorreen Paul, Christina Sigrid, Nicole Kealy, Jan Naylor, Richelle Meneghetti, Cooper Brianna, Harpreet Gura, Jacqueline Kania, Amanda McGregor, Gloria Williams and Chrystal Susut.
