Christchurch’s Bro Online Next Top Model contest in Christchurch was a massive success, with more than 100 people attending the event at Foam nightclub.
The contest was the second of three nationwide searches for models to promote Bro Online, a dating website and online community with a focus on safe sex for takatāpui, gay and bisexual men.
The Christchurch winner of the Bro Online Next Top Model contest was 27 year old Christchurch resident and Bro Online member Aaron Comis. Comis will join the winners of the Wellington and Auckland rounds as well as Mr Gay Auckland and Mr Gay Wellington for a scorching hot photo shoot for Bro Online as well as VIP passes to the Get it On! Big Gay Out in Auckland on 14 February 2010.
The competitors included representatives from the takatāpui, leather daddy, deaf, muscle-bound, straight-seeming and disabled communities; Thane Pullan wowed the crowd by doing a burn out in his wheel chair for his challenge.
Bro online spokesperson, Quinton Hiini says the Bro Online Next Top Model competitions have created a surge of interest in Bro Online. “Bro Online registrations and activity increased dramatically after the competition. There was a lot of interest in the competitions in Wellington and Auckland but the diversity and support for takatāpui, gay and bisexual guys that exist in Christchurch really outshone the other regions.
