Naomi Hughlett has been named the winner of the 2015 Total Makeover Challenge presented by Shape Your World Society.

Hughlett was announced Wednesday as the winner during the final segment of the three-phase contest.

The last phase was a fashion show at the Phoenix Lounge, featuring the 10 finalists.

The fitness, health and beauty challenge began in January with 30 participants.

At the end of the first segment on Feb. 25, the public was invited to vote for their favourite challenger, with public and sponsor voting counting as 50 per cent of the value for choosing the next round of challengers.

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

Twenty participants advanced to the next segment, which ran from Feb. 26 to April 8.

This was followed by a period of online voting on the Abbotsford News website and the naming of the 10 finalists. In addition to Hughlett, they were Jessie Armstrong, Debbie Foote, Tanis Glenn, Nicole Hatt, Bonnie Johnstone, Shannon Koops-Waters, Mylene Normandin, Lori Nyboer, and Diane Palmer.

Heather Krentz, a wildcard selection from round one, was also invited to return.

Online voting for the final segment ran from May 7 to 12, and Hughlett was proclaimed the winner on May 13.

Her prizes include a trip for two to Las Vegas, a one-year gym membership, a boudoir photo shoot and teeth whitening.
