*The grand finale for Johnson Products Company’s marketing event, The Great Model Search, is scheduled for June 12, at the historic El Rey Theater in Los Angeles.

EURweb.com’s own Lee Bailey will join Wendy Raquel Robinson (“The Game”), Rockmond Dunbar (“Soul Food”) on the celebrity judging panel, which will ultimately choose the grand prize winner from eight finalists.

Since the Feb. 1, 2010 launch of The Great Model Search, over 1200 contestants have uploaded their photos for consideration, but only eight will travel to Los Angeles to compete for the crown.

“We realize these young hopefuls are not professional models, and they may not have practiced runway walking,” said Renee Brown, Executive VP of Marketing for JPC. “But who wouldn’t jump at the chance for international exposure, a contract, $5,000, a makeover and a free trip for two to the finale? They will be modeling evening gowns and other fashions on stage in front of hundreds of adoring fans for a fun-filled night where there are no real losers.”

In addition to the free trip, each of the eight finalists will receive a minimum of $1500 and a professional makeover. Four finalists will be selected as Grand Prize winners and receive the following:

• Contestant’s picture on the package of a Gentle Treatment or Ultra Sheen Relaxer kit • $5,000 in cash • A modeling contract for a Johnson Products print ad • A photo session with a top fashion photographer • A complete beauty makeover by a professional hairstylist and makeup artist • A year’s supply of Gentle Treatment and Ultra Sheen products.

The only way to witness the finale is by attending a KJLH pre-finale event with Kevin Nash to be held Saturday, June 5th from noon to 2 p.m. at Sally’s Beauty Supply near the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.. Visit www.TheGreatModelSearch.com for details.
