Swallow that envy for the gals who are not only total Tens, but also the kind of intelligent, compassionate and funny women to aspire to, and browse through the fierce competition over here.
We’re after two winners to cosy up the thrones. Firstly, we’re searching for the
Bachelorette of the Year from the gorgeous gurls we hand-picked.
But we also asked you, dear readers, to incite vanity and nominate yourselves: because you’re worth it. Out of these Bachelorettes, the Reader’s Choice winner will be crowned, reaping bragging
rights and an amazing trip for two to Japan.
Because we’re not total dicks who judge their contestants on one’s bikini strut, and because we expect our nominees to answer a question like this with a bit more elegance, a little less idiocy, we’ve created a judging system that will distinguish a winner in the fairest, most well-rounded way possible.
Here’s the breakdown of our judging system:
- 25% Audience Engagement (voting)
- 25% Accomplishments
- 25% Personality
- 25% Profile Originality and Creativity
