The 29th final was successfully held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. 43 Models joined the 2 weeks competition, which was held for the fourth time in Egypt. Photoshoots and Videoshoots have taken place daily but also some Modelpartys with a special Motto like the 70/80 Party, the Glamour Night or the Black & White Dress Party. In a special Bikini Competition, Hayley Ghiller from Malta was chosen by the Models as BEST BIKINI MODEL by WBO. As well, the 43 Models have chosen the winner of the BEST STYLE and the title went to Thailand. One of the Highlights of the competition was for sure the Boat Trip on the Red Sea where Dolphins have been seen and where the Models enjoyed a special Meal in the Desert.
