After 12.8 million votes the public has chosen Charné Jade Slee as their favourite!

The 22-year-old beauty says that she was literally almost speechless when FHM editor Hagen Engler called her to share the good news. “I told Hagen I would scream if I could, but had no voice on the day due to campaign parties and lack of sleep. I was astonished and the sense of relief after all the hard work that so many people invested in me brought me to tears.”

Hagen reckons she deserves the title fair and square, saying “Charné is gorgeous and sincere, but she also put in the hard work it takes to win FHM Models 2010. She showed self-belief and she got out there, organising events and promoting herself online and in the real world to encourage people to vote for her. Her results show that she succeeded. She’s got the looks, dedication and ambition it takes to be a star. And now she’ll be featuring in the May issue of FHM.”

If you voted for Charné and you're hoping she'll reward you with a date, sorry mate. Charné  is in a very happy relationship with SA musician Jacques Terre’Blanche. “We’ve been together for three and a half years. We met when I still lived in Cape Town as a student."

Although she lives in Gauteng, Charné says that the region is not the only one boasting with the hottest girls in the country. “I think SA on the whole has the hottest girls. I grew up in Natal, studied in Cape Town and I’ve lived in Joburg for 3 years. I think I have a good view on what we have to offer and I’m always impressed.”

Charné's prize includes a sexy photo shoot to be featured in the May issue of FHM as well as some cash, which she's using to pay off a loan.  “I won’t however tell you what my loan was for,” she laughs. Anything to do with that well-filled bikini, Charné?

While campaigning, Charné promised that if she won, she would paraglide off any high point of FHM’s choosing with a big FHM flag behind her. And she’ll do it in her underwear! We wonder if the magazine is going to hold her to her promise.
