Voting Concerns

Greetings, all:

We received so many calls, and had so much to do yesterday, we could not reply to all of the comments. They backed up, so we are putting them in one post. (Some we are responding to directly). Here they are from 4/15/10 The Day The voting Stopped!  We have only deleted email addresses.   The most recent are at the top.

I would like to nominate/mention all of my voters, but since I can’t I will pick a couple to highlight. My first would be my Aunt Shirley who went above and beyond in her campaigning for me. From the very first day that I entered the contest (3/6), she hit the ground running! She would leave work early to pass out fliers and to spread the word. My aunt also PAID to have newspapers run my fliers! She coordinated community meetings, and basically organized her own grassroots movement for me. I was amazed at the amount of time, effort, and funds my aunt put into my dream. However, I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised, that’s just the kind of person she has always been throughout my life. I truly believe that my aunt deserves to see me in L.A., if I make it, God willing! I started this contest a month late, and even with time working against me, with the help of my aunt… today I am in the TOP 48, thank you aunt, I love you! I would also like to mention a couple more people who were noteworthy in my campaign. My other aunt, Dr.Ragland, who campaigned for me, and got the newspaper in her town to run an article on me! Words cannot express how thankful I am for all that she did I love you! Last but not least, I would like to thank/mention my dear friend Catonia. Without this young lady I may not have found out about this contest. She has also been a solid supporter and someone that I could depend on to vote each day, love ya! All of my voters are special, and I thank them all for seeing that “something special” in me that made them take time out of their day to vote! I wish you all could go to L.A.! THANK YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!! AND THANK YOU ALSO TO TGMS!!!

I nominate myself to be a judge for the great model search, I was the sole biggest supporter in my journy that ended today. I have experience as an agency model currently as well as being a MSU grad which I developed strong skills in marketing, advertising, communication, leadership, and analytic skills. It will be an asset to have someone join your panel who can give valuable insight for a success in the areas of the modeling industry as well as the area of business.

My radio station did a “Vote Autumn Chicago” segment today at 3pm. Many people called in saying they could not vote for me. I lost out on votes and can not make up for them as this was done as a special segment. This was an unfortunate situation.

I nominate my mother, Stacey Crawford and/or my grandmother, Maxine Murry! Both of these women have been pillars of strength and beauty in my life. We are three generations. Many people refer to us as the three G’s. :) I would not be the woman I am today without them. They have always supported me and wanted the best for me. I LOVE THEM SOOO MUCH. :) Either one would be an honest and fair judge.

People have work and school tomorrow. You all really messed up. Who wants to stay up until 3 trying to make up for lost votes?

Andrea

Whatever. This contest was rigged.

This situation is quite unfortunate… and a bit suspicious. Seriously some of the girls with top votes have horrible pictures. Johnson should go through and select 100 girls who have great photos and put them to the test for the next week… I personally believe the contest was run all wrong. Basically, it seems that they were only looking for marketing, not beauty or talent. Why would they call it a model search if they are just going off of who has the highest tally of votes. My sister is a contestant and has a page dedicated just to her on her local radio station`s website and just as she was nearing the necessary amount to be in your top 48, her votes decreased. Girls that post their blurry pic with weave should have been immediately disqualified, but I guess this contest has not been fair since day one… I hope my sister takes my advice and removes herself from the contest TODAY. Her pride is worth far more than this opportunistic, shady contest.
