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.
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.
