NMS Girl Of The Day #25 – Liezel Volschenk

Right, it’s that time again where I’m tasked with writing one of this incredibly witty and cutting edge blurbs for our NMS Girl Of The Day. It’s becoming increasingly difficult as our readers wise up to my tricks and start pointing out that I’m using the words ‘stunning’ more than a cougar from Sea Point at the latest Ed Hardy sale.

As a result I’ve decided for today to not simply point out the obvious.  A normal picture is worth a thousand words and we’ve got two pictures here that are well out of the ordinary.

It seems you, dear reader, agree as our social media feeds have been clogged up with calls for the inclusion of Liezel Volschenk as the NMS Girl Of The Day.

Remember, now, that NMS Girl Of The Day is just a stepping stone to fame and fortune.  If you want to ensure that Liezel makes it into the final 15 (and therefore stand a 1/15 chance of making the Sports Illustrated Swimwear shoot) you need to… drumroll… VOTE FOR LIEZEL NOW!

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 #23 – Tenille De Beer

You have to realise something about picking a New Model Search Girl Of The Day – it’s bloody hard work.  My mates are always phoning me up and saying, “Online Guy I wish I had your job,” and “it must be so cool to sit and look at pretty girls all day,” and things like that.

While they have got a point, they forget that it’s bloody hard work this whole NMS Girl Of The Day thing.  With over 600 entrants into the competition already it could take you a whole day to simply click through and evaluate them all. We don’t have that kind of time as our demanding fans want their NMS Girl Of The Day promptly when they arrive at work in the morning and that means added pressure.

It’s no Mickey Mouse prize being selected as NMS Girl Of The Day and featured on the Sports Illustrated website – so we decided to crowd-source some assistance calling for models and their fans to point us in the right direction using social media.  The response was great and that gave me the idea to have a whole week of NMS Girls Of The Day selected from those suggested to us on Twitter and Facebook.

We won’t be able to feature everyone this week, but there’s no harm in bringing your favourites to our attention  (send the links of the entrants you’d like to see featured to me at @SI_OnlineGuy) as it always helps to remind us of anyone we might have missed along the way.

Our first NMS Girl Of The Day badge in this ‘social media week’ goes to @TenilleDeBeer who was very quick out the blocks in putting her link through and definitely has what it takes to be an NMS Girl Of The Day.

Help push Tenille towards the final 15 of the competition by VOTING FOR TENILLE NOW!

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.

NMS Girl Of The Day #17 – Sarah Banks

The final NMS Girl Of The Week is Sarah Banks.

I’m sure that by now you’re not surprised by the quality of NMS hopefuls we’re providing you for NMS Girl Of The Day. Even if it is almost unbelievable!

If you’d like to see Sarah make the finals and be in with a chance of joining the Sports Illustrated Swimwear team then you need to VOTE FOR SARAH!

NMS Girl Of The Day #16 – Lisa Odendaal

Lisa Odendaal’s entry into the 2012 New Model Search sums up the spirit of the competition. An absolutely stunning entrant, great photography, swimwear and a beach.

If you look at the pictures for too long you could drift off into a happy place and forget all about sitting at your desk doing your job with your boss breathing down your neck. That’s the feeling we like to create here at Sports Illustrated HQ.

So we needed to reward Lisa for helping us do this – and what better way to do that than the NMS Girl Of The Day badge. Well done Lisa.

Remember to VOTE FOR LISA!

NMS Girl Of The Day #2 – Chantelle Hammann

It was pointed out to me during the selection of the second NMS Girl Of The Day that yesterday’s inaugural NMS Girl Of The Day was also a Chantel (see Chantel Fouche’s post here). My response was that the spelling is different, the hair colour is different and that they are quite clearly different people.  And that they are both smoking hot entries into the NMS 2012.

I won that argument – and the second girl to win a NMS Girl Of The Day badge is the beautiful Chantelle Hamman.  We’re sure you all agree that it’s the type of hotness that we like to get our weekend off to a flying start.

What you need to do now, though, is VOTE FOR CHANTELLE! That is if you’d like to see her in the Sports Illustrated Swimwear edition.
