THEY'RE stunningly gorgeous and extremely bright.
What is more, they are all going to be in the same room at the same time.
Sounds good, I hear every man shout.
A host of young women are vying for one of 28 places in the finals of Miss Student 2007/08.
And, five of them are from Times Territory.
One is 18-year-old Emma Madgwick, from WGC, who has made it through to the North London regional final, being held at Muswell Hill in March.
Emma, who is in her first year at Middlesex University studying theatre arts, told the WHT that she dreams of one day being a model if she does not make it into acting.
"I went for a photo shoot once and was told that I had the features to be a model, so it's another thing I could possibly do," she said.
"I would like to be a catalogue model or something like that."
The part-time worker at Ernst and Jones jewellers, in the Howard Centre, added that she found out about the contest from her student union's magazine.
"When I heard about the competition I thought I might as well enter it, I had nothing to lose. I did not expect to make it through to the regional finals.
"There are three other girls from my uni taking part and the competition is pretty fierce."
The winning prize for the contest, which is based on a judging panel vote and votes by text, is £10,000, a European holiday and a photo shoot.
Emma turns 19 later this month and could do with a £20 sponsor to help her promote herself in the finals.
She said: "It would be brilliant to actually win it outright; I think with the money I would help pay off some debts and perhaps get myself a new car."
