Makeover Challenge voting round to whittle 15 contestants to just five

Voting open from April 4 to April 10, as women move forward in life-changing challenge

Fifteen women, divided into teams of five, are competing in The Total Makeover Challenge.

The contest began earlier this year with 29 contestants, presented by Shape Your World Society and presenting sponsors MSA Ford and Shoppers. As the contestants work on improving their fitness, health, personal growth, development and beauty makeover, voters can follow along and vote for their favourites.

And the next round of voting begins April 4 at 3 p.m. In this round, the 15 participants will be whittled down to just five. Public voting and votes from a judges’ panel count as 50 per cent of the value for choosing the challengers who move on to the next round. The other 50 per cent is based on program participation, attitude, leadership skills, weight loss and inch loss in addition to other mini challenges taking place throughout the segment.

Each team has been busy working together on hosting events, in addition to managing their weight loss goals. On April 3, for example, The Bodacious Belles hosted a Paint Night at the Well in Chilliwack, with about 30 women putting brush to canvas. The evening also included a silent auction and 50/50 prizes. Other events planned include burger nights at pubs and cocktail parties.

This second round of voting will run until April 10. Voters can make up to 10 votes per day, per device. Votes can be spread among multiple favourites as well.

The winner will be chosen after the end of segment three, which runs from April 17 to May 21, with votes cast from May 9 to 15.
