Name: Michele Raspel

Age: 19

Home Town: Naboomspruit, Limpopo

What do you do? I am currently working as a receptionist and studying part time.

Interests or hobbies? Singing, playing golf, having a braai with friends, quad biking and playing pool.

What’s your biggest turn-on? A Scottish accent! Drives any boeremeisie crazy!

Why should guys vote for you? I love to braai with friends, camp, spend time in the outdoors, watching the sun set over our beautiful bushveld and playing golf. I think they should vote for me as I am a great example of a proudly South African girl. I'd love to represent us if given the opportunity!

Your most embarrassing moment? My best friend and I went out to watch a local band play. As usual she made us fashionably late. As we arrive, I realise the entire club is fully packed and I am the shortest person there. Above the loud music I scream to my friend, " I wish someone would hand me something to stand on so I can see better". Not long after that, the guy next to me passes me a box. "Gee," I think, "What a nice guy!" And I get on top of the box. I don't notice there's a big, "Band Tips" written clearly on the box. It soon collapses from under me and the entire club stops. Because we were late, we did not hear that the box was being sent around to collect tips for the band. Imagine my embarrassment when the band stops playing and the entire club stares at me, wondering why the hell I broke their box! I've never blushed so much in my life!

The sexiest thing you’ve ever done? Well, spending most of my time in the bush, I don't really have a lot of sexy and glamorous moments. I think taking the photos for this competition was a pretty sexy feeling!

What’s your idea of a great night out? Where do you go to party? My perfect night out will be taking all my buddies to the local pub, having a beer and kicking their butts at pool. We'll enjoy the conversation, braaivleis on the braai outside and lang-arm dance the night away…

Your proudest moment? My proudest moment by far was winning Grand Champion Pop Singer of the World at the World Championships for Performing Arts in Los Angeles, after competing against 32 countries and 360 performers.

Words to live by/ What’s your life philosophy? There are two eternities in life that can really break you down. Yesterday and tomorrow. One is gone and the other does not exist, so live today like your last day!
