The Show Must Go On
With all the Big Brother hype we thought you might like a fly on the wall view of what goes on when 10 girls get nearly naked. 3 weeks ago I, along with 10 gorgeous beauties headed along to Benidorm Palace to strip half naked, all in the name of fashion.
Thankfully after much persuasion from the other girls I was convinced to keep my clothes on and leave the stripping down to the professionals. So how do you put a fashion show together? Well firstly you enlist the help of someone who has done this all before. Now you all know our Lizzie (the one who writes the better half of our articles) well she has been involved in modeling since before she could walk. I think she probably modeled her nappies like a professional!
Anyway, help enlisted, the next step is to find the victims. My theory on this is to ask as many girls as you can, and you should get a healthy return, it’s always worked for me with men! That or ply all of your friends with alcohol and get them to say yes whilst under the influence. Both methods work, but being a bit of a sadist the second is much funnier, especially when you see the look on their faces the following day.
Next is the first rehearsal. This is where you scare them to death with choreographed moves that a contortionist would find impossible, let alone a group of already terrified individuals; But, with a firm lead and more alcohol you manage to get them to the venue and convince them that “of course no one will show up, I cant think of anyone who would want to stare at a bunch of gorgeous half naked girls. Hysteria aside (and that’s me not them) we get through it all intact, and still remaining friends. So on to the show. Backstage is a mixture of nerves, excitement and a queue for the mirrors.
Now as you can see from our picture these girls are all gorgeous so the need for enhancement is a minimum, but try telling that to them. Thankfully we have enough mirrors to avoid the inevitable cat fights, and the heavy scent of hairspray is drugging us all in to a comatose state anyway!
With 3 minutes to showdown a wonderful crackle of excitement is running backstage and the usual group of guys are vying for the best positions out front, nothing new there. The first beats of music start and before you know it you are whipping the knickers off the first set of girls and shoving them into the next set, and believe me you lose all sense of dignity when you are being fitted. All the routines fly by in a flash, and as the last beat of music dies the sense of excitement is running high, its all I can do to hold on to them, and stop them from running back onstage to do it all again.
Amazing, from terrified beginnings these 10 individuals have grown into confident consummate professionals with insatiable onstage appetites, but thankfully they all remain down to earth girls with a fantastic sense of humor. So I am going to take this opportunity to thank them all for being such good sports. Big air kisses to Katie, Emma, Charly, Rachel, Hannah, Caroline, Vanessa, Rosie, Linda, Victoria and the lovely Lizzie, and backstage stripping help from Vicky, Katie, Sharon and Angela, our shows would be nothing without all of you.
