MC for the evening was Merrill Joshua. The contestants were judged on two rounds: a casual wear and an evening wear round. In between there was a beach wear themed entertainment round performed by the nine ladies as a group, but this round didn't contribute to the judges scores.

As winner Leoni received a cheque for £500 plus a dinner for 6 at Flagg's Accommodation and a photo shoot with Capricorn Studios.
