Age: 16 (19/09/91)
Lives: Wollongong, NSW
Personal: At just 16 years of age, Demelza is the ‘baby’ of the house. She is in year 11 this year, and has taken her school work with her, studying at the house in between challenges and photo shoots. Her parents are very supportive of her entering the house despite her age and the fact she will be missing school.
Demelza loves acting, and has been studying speech and drama for about 11 years. Happiness is the most important thing in the world, she gets embarrassed by her mum and dad, and she exercises every week and maintains a healthy diet to stay in shape. Demelza describes herself as entertaining, generous and ambitious.
Modelling/Fashion: Demelza has no formal modelling experience, but says she brings her absolute commitment and a winning smile to AUSTRALIA’S NEXT TOP MODEL.
Her perfect day is waking up after she’s won the competition and realising it’s not a dream. Demelza loves all the fashion magazines, and in particular US Vogue editor Anna Wintour is her hero. Demelza believes that fashion allows her to express her individuality and sense of style. She doesn’t follow trends, but prefers to wear what makes her feel good, and says her style is eclectic.
Likes: old movies; French pop, jazz, alternative roots; her face, particularly her eyes and eyebrows; loves that she’s not a jealous person
Hates: needles and creepy crawlies; the dark; her butt and thighs; that she can get overly excited and she can get annoying, selfish, egotistical and judgmental.
Life motto: ‘Don’t be a bitch’
