Round 2: Personality Plus – This shows us who you are! Costume fun, open to show us all about you! Are you a mum? A baker? A fitness addict? Questions in this round will be about your outfit or theme, to give you a chance to explain to us who you are. We want to get the judges to know who you are and what makes you special.
Round 3 – Show us your tats!!! – This is open again to wear whatever shows your tattoos the most! Be a swim suit or bikini? Hot pants and a crop top? Show us your beautiful ink.
