TNMMI Cycle 2 Announces Their Winner

Unique Definition just finished their second cycle of their male modeling competition, The Next Male Model Icon. We talked with them earlier this year when they were gearing up. You can check out their earlier blog here. Starting out with 16 guys they narrowed it down to 6 guys to participate in the big 3 day competition.

Day 1
All 6 guys had a dance session with dance choreographer Deonte Sharpe.
This helped them prepare themselves for their photo shoot with a concept of HIP HOP America.
Then they all had makeovers with barber Killa Kia where they had cool designs shaved in their heads.

Their first photo shoot was with photographer Cedric Terrell of Cedric Terrell Photography which was also their first elimination challenge. That night they eliminated 2 guys (Reginald and Clifort) to get the final 4 (Josh, Cory, Jeremy, David).

Day 2
They guys met with Godiva ofGeorgetown for an in store challenge in which they had to take a chocolate covered strawberry and eat it the sexiest. They were judged by Godiva and patrons of the store.

Their 2nd challenge of the day was a runway walk on the streets and sidewalks of Chinatown DC.

The 3rd challenge of the day was a challenge where they had to style each other in 3 forms of clothing at Pentagon City Mall, the styles were formal, rock, and urban. The guys wore the likes of Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Express, among other designers. That night they had a nude photo shoot with photographer Justin S. Robinson. This shoot was also in conjunction for our AIDS and Safe SEX campaign coming in 2012.

Day 3
The final 4 had meetings with Aveda of Georgetown for skin care and its importance follow by a surprise photo shoot with photographer Justin S. Robinson in Georgetown Park.

The final four then gathered for their final eliminations in which Jeremy and Cory became the final 2 shortly after they announced Cory Malcolm as the winner of The Next Male Model Icon 2!

Cory Malcolm won $1000 dollars, an underwear shoot with Unique Definition, a cruise and a high fashion shoot with Justin S. Robinson for his portfolio.
