The next round of online voting in the 2020 Total Makeover Challenge opens on Thursday, April 9 at 3 p.m.
Voting runs until noon on April 14 at abbynews.com/contests/, after which time the current field of 14 challengers will be narrowed to the Top 5 finalists.
The challenge began in February and is presented by Shape Your World Society and presenting sponsors Steve Nash Fitness World and Shoppers.
Challengers have been participating in segments that focus on fitness, health, and personal growth and development. They have also received a human needs assessment and coaching session.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they have adapted the program, including holding meetings over video conferencing.
“We are actively promoting how to reduce stress during these times and how to keep physically active at home,” organizers say.
After each segment, voting determines those who move on to the next round.
The first segment ran until the end of February, at which time the field was narrowed to the 14 semifinalists.
After the top five are chosen after April 14, the final segment will run from April 22 to May 25, with online votes cast from May 15 to 19.
The winner will be announced on May 26. Prizes include a getaway trip for two, a one-year gym membership, a boudoir photo shoot, one-year unlimited tanning and more.
The 14 challengers who are hoping to move onto the top five are: Mandi Friesen, Kal Gill, Ashleigh Henczel, Lynne Karey-McKenna, Pauline Miles, Andrea Neyedli, Tina Palmer, Jaynie Potocky, Jen Romero, Alexis Scoville, Tammy Ward, Chani Webster, Tracey Williams and Lori Witmer.
The challenge is also taking place in Chilliwack and Langley.
