Clare Venema signs with Chic


So Tahnee Atkinson won Australia's Next Top Model Cycle 5. Runner up Cassi van den Dungen has reportedly been offered a contract with Elite New York. And Clare Venema? Frockwriter can reveal that the third member of ANTM's final three, who many believed should have won the series, has just been signed to Sydney's Chic Management. With Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Myf Shepherd and co on the same agency's books, Venema is in good hands. As reported by frockwriter, both Venema and Atkinson were both named state finalists in the 2008 Girlfriend Model Search competition, which is aligned with Chic, before being eliminated when it emerged that they were already signed with other agencies. According to Chic's Kathy Ward, Venema also entered the 2007 GMS. Ward says that the competition's rules have been changed this year to allow models to be listed with agencies - however they must not have done any major modelling work. Also according to Ward, Venema was obliged to leave Adelaide's Finesse agency in order to compete in ANTM. Venema will remain at school and model part-time for the moment. Noted Ward, "She’s got the height, she's got a great attitude, she's a really nice girl. And I think all these elements will make for a very successful model".

I so enjoyed this season and am going to miss it on a Tuesday night! The bitchy judges, hissy fits etc. And Sarah M was an amzing host. Will be interesting to follow the careers of the girls especially Cassie's.

I wish Chic could get Cassi with Clare's attitude.
BTW where's Myf? I thought she'd be at couture.
