NMS Girl Of The Day #59 – Nadia Van Der Merwe

April 26, 2012

I’ve been sitting here with tears streaming down my cheeks, dripping onto my keyboard.

This is the last NMS Girl Of The Day. Our run is over. The fun is at an end.

No longer do I arrive at work with a massive decision to make. No longer to I hold the hopes and dreams of so many in my hands.

There is some good news, though, but I’m too sad to share it with you today. Come back on Monday and hopefully I’ll be in a better mood.

For now let’s just enjoy and VOTE FOR NADIA.

NMS Girl Of The Day #24 – Samantha Laura Kaye

The beauty of the connected world we live in is that you, our beloved public, have an opportunity to chat directly to us here in the Sports Illustrated HQ and feedback on what you like, what you don’t like and where we are missing the point. It’s part of the reason we decided to do social media nominations this week and it’s paying off handsomely.

Handsomely is rather the wrong word isn’t it? Guys are handsome. NMS entrants are ‘beautiful’, ‘sexy’, ‘sultry’, ‘stunning’, ‘pretty’, ‘hot’… I’ve been exhausting poor old Roget’s Thesaurus looking for superlatives for what we’re seeing every week.

Take the case of Samantha Laura Kaye our NMS Girl Of The Day for today.  Samantha has pulled in over 50 000 votes, but somehow hadn’t quite hit the Online Guy’s radar yet.  Look you can’t blame me – I’ve got other duties to perform here and we’ve got over 800 entries already!

Samantha is clearly hugely popular and drummed up a number of Tweets, blog posts and Facebook comments to set me right and now it’s time to unveil her as our NMS Girl Of The Day. Samantha (@slkaye on Twitter) points out that lingerie pictures like these show that she’s got what it takes to make the final 15.

NMS Girl Of The Day #20 – Cara Jackson

Thank you to everyone who very kindly said that they quite enjoy these cheesy little NMS Girl Of The Day blurbs that I write every morning.  You’ve filled on Online Guy with good vibes this morning and as a reward I’m going to do exactly the same thing I do every morning: namely post a smoking hot NMS Girl Of The Day for your enjoyment.

I’ll let you know that there’s some fierce competition, rivalry and hi-jinx going on in the Sports Illustrated HQ as we try to pick the NMS Girl Of  The Day each morning.  People are punting their favourites, checking statistics to see which post gets the most views and trash talking the selections of others.  It’s quite heated stuff!

If you’d like to recommend someone for NMS Girl Of The Day the best way to do it is on Twitter. Send us the link on Twitter to @SI_SouthAfrica or to me @SI_OnlineGuy and we’ll take your selection into consideration.  Who knows – you might even become an overnight Twitter celebrity. Or something like that.

Without further ado – head over and VOTE FOR CARA JACKSON. Who, if you hadn’t noticed, is on another level!

NMS Girl Of The Day #19 – Tasmin Vorster

NMS Girl Of The Day #19 - Tasmin Vorster

There’s been no indication from any of you that you enjoy these witty little intros that I write each day about our New Model Search Girl Of The Day.  There have, however, been a few calls to stop the waffling and get the pictures out there.

I know some of you aren’t even reading this!  I could write about the latest budget, the price of cheese or just about anything – even my feelings! – and not one of you would even know it was happening.  See!  Exactly – nobody sees because you’re all blinded by the beauty of Tasmin Vorster today.

And I’m cool with that. It hurts the old feelings a bit, but I’ll get over it.

If I shout at you and tell you to VOTE FOR TASMIN VORSTER! at least some of you have the decency to to that.  I’ll also congratulate Tasmin on a particularly hot entry.

Here’s the second picture you’ve been waiting for…

NMS Girl Of The Day #18 – Elena Pappas

You might recognise today’s NMS Girl Of The Day badge winner Elena Pappas from a recent MTV reality TV show.  Or you might not.

What we’re sure you will agree with, though, is that Elena is definitely a worthy winner of the NMS Girl Of The Day badge for today.

Remember you need to VOTE FOR ELENA if you’d like to see her in the final 15 of the Sports Illustrated New Model Search.
