'Australia's Next Top Model': Proving a gal can take it like a man (or better)

September 29, 2010 | 12:25 pm


When Sarah Murdoch, the supermodel host of "Australia's Next Top Model," announced the wrong name as winner, the two finalists demonstrated that, this week at least, good sports are more likely to be wearing stiletto heels than dance shoes.

Amanda Ware graciously thanked the judges and others after hearing rival Kelsey Martinovich named winner of the Aussie version of "America's Next Top Model" on Tuesday night. Then when the mistake was discovered -- think the giant magazine cover that showed up with Amanda splashed on it was any clue? -- she thanked them again. Then Martinovich, who'd already given an acceptance speech, went out of her way to console Murdoch, who appeared horrified by what had happened.

How many votes out there to get both of these ladies in the next cast of "Dancing With the Stars"? At least they'd likely look better than Michael Bolton if they had to crawl out of a doghouse.
