Welwyn model is Beach Babe 2011 runner-up

A MODEL from Welwyn could still be crowned Beach Babe 2011 after this week making it through to the final of the national contest.

Harriet Metzger finished runner-up in Babemag.com’s second heat of Beach Babe 2011.

The achievement sees her bag an exclusive shoot in the magazine, as well as a place in September’s grand final.

If she wins that, she would be whisked off to Thailand for an exclusive photoshoot with a celebrity photographer.

The 22-year-old, who gave up her role as an account executive to join up with agencies Promo Models and Supermodels, told the WHT she was delighted to make it through.

Since our story in last month’s Welwyn Hatfield Times, Harriet, who had already starred in glamour and sports shoots, has gone on to do many more sessions and has also gained a spot on the Maxim Model Boxing Night for later this year.

The former Monk’s Walk School pupil added: “I will keep everyone up to date when I will feature in the magazine and when the final voting starts, in the meantime for recent updates “like” my model page www.facebook.com/dollyinpink”

* For another hopeful – former Brookmans Park beauty Sophia Jenner – it was a case of ‘so near, but yet so bra’.

The ex-Queenswood School boarder, 24, was pipped to a place in the top three of this year’s Star in a Bra contest.

But she made the top 10.
