South African model and former Idols finalist Adeline Mocke has won an International Model Search at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The 23 year old model from Upington beat out 50 other contestants from 19 countries to take home the title and a cheque for R270 000. And rightly so…she’s been featured on Life is Savage a few times in the past and i’m stoked for her. Girl from the Karoo did good.
If you remember Adeline finished 5th in the Idols singing competition in 2010.
On winning the Internation Model Search in Las Vegas, Adeline said:
“I can’t believe this, a dream from long ago has come true. In the desert where I come from, nobody believed that I would ever leave there. When I got to Capetown, nobody believed I would ever get to America. Now I can pay off the bank loan. I can continue my studies, and I can stay in America. Dreams do come true however big you dream.” [Las Vegas Sun]
Nicely done Adeline. Proudly SA.
