SEWENTIENDUISEND inskrywings. Twintig fina-liste. Twee wenners.

Jeffreysbaai se Barry Swanepoel (17), ’n selferkende ektrovert met ’n vriendelike en hulpvaaridge ge-aardheid, is die nuwe gesig van Mr Price.

  • D.

Benewens die reklame-veldtog met Mr Price, het die twee wenners met R50 000 en ’n kontrak met Ice Models weggestap.

Swanepoel, tans ’n leerder by die Hoërskool Outeniqua in George, het verlede jaar sy modelloopbaan begin, en al die Mnr. George-titel opgeraap.

Volgens Swanepoel het sy ma, Ode Botha, hom aangemoedig om in te skryf. “Sy het die kompetisie ge-sien en gesê: mens laat nooit ’n ge-leentheid verbygaan nie.

“Ek het nie vir een oomblik ge-dink dat ek die kompetisie sou wen nie. Toe hulle my met die goeie nuus bel, kon ek dit skaars glo. Dit was ’n groot verrassing.”

Swanepoel beskryf homself as vriendelike, spontaan en doelgerig. “’n Belangrike eienskap vir my is lojaliteit.

“My geloof is ook vir my belang-rik. Ek glo sterk daaraan dat ’n persoon fiks moet wees, en oefen daarom gereeld.”

Hy geniet verder om vis te vang, motorfiets te ry en te jag.

Swanepoel droom daarvan om eendag oorsee modelwerk te doen.

Hy is nie nét ‘n mooi gesig nie, hy het ook ’n passie vir die natuur.

Barry Swanepoel is beslis ’n naam om dop te hou.
