Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they have adapted the program, including holding meetings over video conferencing.

The challengers also raised almost $5,700 for charity as part of the program.

After each segment, voting determined 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.

The next phase involved online voting from April 9 to 14, after which the top five – plus a wildcard – were chosen.

The final segment began April 22 and runs until May 25, with the winner being announced the following day.

Prizes include a getaway trip for two, a one-year gym membership, a boudoir photo shoot, one-year unlimited tanning and more.

The six Abbotsford finalists are: Kal Gill, Tammy Ward, Lynne Karey-McKenna, Tracey Williams, Andrea Neyedli and Lori Witmer.

The challenge is also taking place in Chilliwack and Langley.
