We've been obsessed with The Face ever since we first learned that supermodel Naomi Campbell was launching a new modeling reality show. In anticipation of the Oxygen Network series' second season premiere (airing tomorrow, on Wednesday, March 5 at 10 ET), we're excited to announce that we'll be hosting an exclusive weekly blog from one of the contestants, model Amanda Gullickson.
We asked Gullickson to tell us a little bit about herself in a video selfie, which you can see for yourself here. The 18-year-old South Carolina girl has been modeling for the past couple of years and is currently signed with Next Los Angeles. (Here's a little feature on Gullickson in WWD; you can also check out her tFS forum thread.) She tells us that she auditioned for The Face at the suggestion of her mother agency in Charlotte, Evolution: "I went to the casting and everything just fell into place."
This season, industry legends Lydia Hearst and Anne V join Campbell as mentors to the twelve contestants; photographer and television personality Nigel Barker will his role as host. The winner will become the face of Frédéric Fekkai for the beauty brand's 2014 national ad campaign and receive a spread in the July issue of ELLE magazine.
Check back after tomorrow's premiere to get Amanda's exclusive take on the episode.
